    Default Etherdream 2 DMX out

    Hi All
    I see the Etherdream 2 has an internal DMX header in the description what is needed to get DMX to work with LSX? Has anyone done this in the forum?

    All this info is from the ED1, but I am not aware of any changes to DMX. There is an add-on board to attach to the header pins:

    Then you can send OSC signals at the Ether Dream to control the DMX functions.

    Hi
    Thanks for the reply, If this is the case I wonder where I can get the DMX attachment board from?

    It looks like you could order it from the site at one time but the order button is no longer functional

    i think he only made a few, but it should be pretty trivial to wire up your own.

    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    As usual swamidog has beaten me to it

    Ether Dream 1 had expansion headers on the board for which a DMX adapter was available, but I only made a few of them since not many people used it. ED2 has it all onboard (well, except the connector).

    Software-wise, they both handle DMX exactly the same, and it'll work with LSX.

    Now that is way cool j4cbo, that the ED2 has DMX input handling built-in and the header just provides connectivity to the external DMX connector. Is my understanding correct?
