Installation: don't use microphone cable for DMX, make sure you terminate the end of the line, and you'll be fine. If it doesn't work, and even if you're really sure you've done it right, swap over pins 2&3 on the DMX connector, just to see if wiring it *wrong* makes it all start working.


Operation: read the manuals! Crammed full of nuggets of useful information. Also have a good read of these forums!

Have a good read of the manual- may seem a bit daunting at first but easy once you get started (very addictive reading :lol: ). For some quick pointers look at my Guide a link to which and information is in the sticky topic at the top!.


Here is some random info;


F1= Locks the scree


Hold down and attribute (i.e. colour, beamshape, poss) and you will see all the relevent palettes!


Hold down + and - to enter super user


Opperation is speeded up greatly with a monitor and keyboard.


The Desk has two DMX univereses!


Thats enough to be getting on with, I will post again when blessed with some more time!
