View Full Version : Hill 320 and a Olsen 595

Can you run the Olsen 595 and the Hill 320 together ? ( both under Vixen at the same time )
I realize that this requires the use of two parallel ports , which is no problem , just wondering since I have both , and would like to have around 50 channels dimmable and the rest - on/off only .

Neither of them inherently dim, unless you have a Ren-C for the Olsen - unless I do not understand the Hill 320 correctly.

Yes, two LPT/parallel ports are needed as you know and you can run more than one plug in at a time with Vixen and define which LPT/parallel port for which. So yes, though it might be interesting as I haven't read of anyone using both at the same time.

Well , I have been trying to run both , but thge display does not show the HILL channels working when going to preview the output .
What I done so far :

the 595 is on the first parallel and the Hill is on the second
the 595 is set to channels 1 - 64
the Hill is set to channels 65-256
( is this where I messed up ? )
And total channels listed thru the wizard is 256 total
Now ... where did I go wrong so far ?
VIXEN is no showing the display ouput for any of the channels for the Hill ( which , again , I have listed second in the DEVICES
