    During the show I'll have the Renard connected through a Falcon or Alphapix. If I want to test the SS24 and connect it straight to the laptop I would need a usb to RS485 adapter, correct?

    Is this one suffice?

    yes that will work for the renard protocol. it will not work for the dmx protocol.

    So I finally received the programmer you recommended I order. Followed the instruction with installing all hardware and software but when I open the PICkit 2 software it says the PICkit 2 is connected but it shows no PIC connected. Is there something I need to do to the PIC adapter. Itís the iCP03 that you recommend

    OMG....I totally did not realize I had to take the PIC from the renard SS24 and put it into the adapter. Boy I'm dumb. I was wondering how it all came together. OK now when I open up PICkit 2 I get and error
