Another DMX Newbie has hit a wall
Firstly: Holy crap DMX is a bizarre combination of arcane and opaque systems.
Anyway, sorry to dig this up again, but I've read Kyle's thread from 2 years ago, el.tito's thread from 2 years before that and the wiki pages and I've still not managed to get EE to talk to my DMX light and was hoping for a little advice as to what to try next.
I've got a usb to DMX512 interface adapter that uses uDMX. This one if it matters: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01HLRIUN8
I've installed the illutzmination udmxdriver from here: https://www.illutzmination.de/udmxdriver.html?&L=1 and managed to get it controlled by the FreeStyler application so that I can turn it on using channel 1 + 2 set to 0 and 255 respectively:
So I've made a little test hardware.ini with the following contents:
[hardware] device = uDMXDevice [channels] # 2 Channel UV 2ChannelUV = 1, 2 [state] condition = Always target = 2ChannelUV value = , 
Which I think should just turn the light on when EE starts? But it doesn't.
The relevant bit of EmptyEpsilon.log seems to be:
[ERROR] uDMX.dll reported device is not connected. [ERROR] But resuming to use it anyhow. [INFO] New hardware device: uDMXDevice with: 512 channels [INFO] Channel #1, 2: 1 [INFO] Channel #1, 2: 2 [INFO] Hardware subsystem initialized with: 512 channels
Kyle's thread mentioned that he "needed to use the Entec protocol instead of DMX512" but I don't know where to do that. I tried changing the device to EnttecDMXProDevice but that gave a "failed to configure device error" so I think I was closer with the uDMXDevice.
I tried swithing to the VirtualOutputDevice and that gave me a white box, so I think the config ini formatting is OK, but I don't know what to try next.
Thanks for any assistance.
