    What are you doing to troubleshoot? What do the log files say?

    Have no idea why this does not work. I reloaded the FTDI driver without success

    Hi...

    I received my dongle usb-dmx, i'm trying to make it work too with no success.

    I tried everything, on vixen side and on "dmx" drivers side.

    This is my dongle: https://www.ebay.com/itm/DMX512-PC-C...72.m2749.l2648

    And this it's the stuff i've been trying:

    - uDMX_Driver_libUSBK
    - zadig-2.3
    - X-uDMX512_Driver

    can't upload here due file size limit.


    Also i saw this post here: http://doityourselfchristmas.com/for...VICE_NOT_FOUND - could be your problem....



    If anyone has any ideas feel free to post (sorry kermit to hijack your thread)

    this device should not need special drivers. have you tried using dmx pro on the usb port that appears when you plug in the dongle.

    Yesterday removed Windows 10 and installed win 7. Latest Vixen version installed. My USB to DMX interface installed (FTDI) but under Vixen it does not work .... what am I doing wrong? Under other lighting control software the interface works perfectly

    Ok....

    my experience...

    this is my 30 channel controller

    SAM_1148.JPG

    this was my usb dmx dongle... didnīt worked, only with other software like freestyler, QLC+.
    The computer didnīt recognize the dongle as COM port. I tried inumerous combinations and drivers, didnīt worked woth vixen at all.
    By the way, i've windows 10, vixen x86, last version.

    SAM_1144.JPG
    SAM_1145.JPG

    What i did dessoldered the XLR and soldered some jumper wires

    SAM_1146.JPG

    connected to a "Mini FT232RL 3.3V 5.5V FTDI USB to TTL Serial Adapter Module for Arduino Port" that i already had (like this one http://www.yourobot-electronics.com/...-breakout-335v )

    SAM_1147.JPG

    Connected the 5050 led strip to my DIY power supply


    Configure the display with a open dmx and patch a element

    Now i have 2 situations:

    XLR to FTDI

    Ground to ground
    Data + to data +
    Data - to data -

    Video on next post


    Ground to ground
    Data + to data -
    Data - to data +


    Video on next post


    one way all seems to be right except the colors
    the other way the colors are right but the timing not even close!!!!

    Any comments???

    Regards
    Zelev

    For anyone watching this thread. The OpenDMX update was included in the latest 3.4u3 release that was posted yesterday (11/26/17) This should clear up the errors related to the x64 version of Vixen and it's inability to keep the FTDI device open.

    This is the correct way. It's not unusual for RGB Strips to have a color order other than RGB. I have 3 different types in my display. There's two potential solutions. 1) change the order of the wires between the strip and the controller so that it is in the RGB order. Or 2) Change the RGB Color order in vixen's configure color handling wizard.
