Hi. We recently acquired Dot 2 in our "theatre" space. The space is shared with multiple users (school, community college) and there hasn't been a paid technician ever in the venue. The venue has an ETC congo and we wanted something simpler.
Now, I'm coming from a sound engineering background and was set to do the patching of the lamps. We have two dmx universes
and lots of moving heads via art-net. Art-net is causing me grey hairs. Here is the setup:
Dot 2 --> HP V1410-16 switch --> lamps (Robin LEDwash 600 mode2 etc...)
Like I said I come from a sound engineering background and I'm having trouble patching the lamps via art-net. I've looked up device list and the addresses from
the Congo and patched everything right in dot 2 but none of the lamps in the art-net are working. Everything via the dmx outputs works.
I just wanted to ask if I'm missing something crucial since this is the first time I'm doing this stuff?
I also tried to change the dot 2 art-net ip with "Setip eth0:1 10.x.x.x" (and of course replaced the x's with numbers
The next step for me is I'm taking the lamps down and patching straight from dot 2 --> lamp just to try it out. There's no documentation or anything
of the venue's technical information (which as you all know sucks) so I'm doing this blind folded and just trying stuff out.
Thanks and greetings,
