    Default Renard 24ss boards 7-10 not listening

    Ok, not sure if this is the right area - please advise if not

    here's the basics
    Win7
    USB to RS485
    Running adjustable preview and modified dimmer

    under modified dimmer, setting are as follows
    Protocal Version 1
    Com5
    Baud rate 57600
    Paridy None
    Data Bits 8
    Stop Bit 1

    If i go into Vixen and do channel test, all the channels will light. When i run a sequence, the last 4 boards, 1-3 does not work correctly (not acting as programmed) and the 4th one not at all.

    Any ideas or more info needed?

    thank everyone - even for reading!

    You have the channel count right? You didn't list that. I would also turn off the preview

    Did you reorder the channels at all? There are two channel re-orders. One for the profile and one for the output.

    There are two areas that need to be re-ordered. The bottom one (see attachment) is for the profile, but the top left one is for the channel output. I made that mistake this year too.

    You bet! Again, I made the same mistake this year so it was fresh in my mind.
