DMX out Controlling LED Strip instead of Individual LEDs

Postby tobyah » Sat Jun 15, 2019 5:46 pm

Hi all,

I am a TD beginner and am having some issues with DMX out. I followed Ben and Markus' tutorial on pixel mapping, and I can't seem to figure out why the DMX out is making the entire LED strip the same color, rather than each LED on the strip a different color.

The devices I am using are:
- ENTTEC DMX USB Pro https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077VW1DJH/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
- LIXADA DMX512 Decoder https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00B42M3RG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
- RGB LED strip of 110(x3) LEDs https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DTOAWZ2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have uploaded my TD file and a video of my connection below. Please help me if you can!

It seems as though I had the wrong LEDs. The LED strip I chose is non-addressable. On top of that, the decoder I had may not have been fitting for this project. I have returned them and in place am now using a DMXking LeDMX4 Pro. Hope this works, will keep this thread posted!
