No but I do love little kittens, they are so soft and furry

And I can remember the firing order of. Ford v8.....however

Have you tried this Wez, there's a couple of vids on it, this is part 1

I have sat along side such things but not programmed myself. my understanding is that setting up varies drastically apart from the actual 'addressing' of fittings. best you check out the manual and then check the addressing options with the particular cans being used. Do you have model numbers?

Good luck with that... dmx is a bit like midi... brilliant when you get your head round it. Do what I do..set it to sound to light and have an on/off switch..lol.

If you let me know the controller and par can make/model details I will do my best to guide you through it on here/by e-mail.

I would offer to come over and sort it for you but I go away on Sunday and I'm guessing you need them sooner rather than later!

I did write a long post once explaining how DMX works (it's quite simple really!), I'll see if I can dig it out.

Same offer as Rocket. I used to sell them, now I do tech support for a manufacturer. With the makes and models I am sure we can fettle it between the 3 of us.


PS...look forward to playing under them one day perhaps :)
