Re: Light-O-Rama DMX
On the LOR website there is a list detailing which controllers will run DMX (most of them) and what firmware is required for it to work. There is also a diagram to detail how to create an adapter to connect the RJ45 connectors to 3 pin connectors for DMX.
Currently, you can control both LOR and any DIY together. To control both with LOR you will need to have the iDMX adapter and the DIY hardware will have to be DMX compatable. Or... if you're using Vix to control everything... your spare LOR boards can be easily converted to work with DMX and added to your fleet.
I have not tested this yet. Mainly because I haven't picked up the iDMX adapter yet. There is an annual sale, and I hadn't settled on a platform until after it was over. It is considerably more expensive than a DMX dongle. So expensive that I personally wouldn't buy it if it wasn't on sale. However, there is no reason they will not work together. DMX is the common ground.
