    Thanks and so for the port for your XLR cable do you just wire up a female adapter onto that or how does the end look like to attach the XLR cable

    The board has 3 connections. A and B on the board are the DMX + and - pins. If it doesn't work try swapping A and B. Pin 1 is ground on a 3-pin connector.

    Ya i get all of that stuff im just confused how you have that XLR cable connected to your board as the one shown doest have a port to plug that into. Did you wire the port onto that board for the XLR cable?

    Cut the "DMX" end off the XLR cable. Now you have three wires exposed. Connect to the device. It looks like Richie used a cat5? cable maybe and put his own end on the cable.

    Yes I made my own using 3 cores of a CAT5 cable (which is 100ohm impedance so not far off the DMX spec of 120) and a female XLR connector. If you're not into soldering then buy an off the shelf DMX cable (preferred, or you could get by with a short xlr->xlr audio cable) and chop off the male end, strip the wires back and connect the screw terminals. I would imagine inside a commercial cable you have a twisted pair which are the A and B then an outer shield which would be ground.
