I am using an Arduino Uno quite a long time to contol my DMX RGB lights with MIDI Notes and DMX Simple library.
All works quite fine.
The Spots have 4CH (dimmer, red, green, blue)
Then I bought 2 new DMX512 RGB Pinspots trying to control them too, but it just won't work.
They have 6CH (dimmer, red, green, blue, white, ..., ...)
Also 2 Moonflower DMX512 lights do not respond.
I have changed the code to the matching channels of course.
When I connect a Hardware DMX Controller, everthing works fine.
I have read somewhere, that some DMX lights need to receive on all 512 Channels.
And I read you need to upgrade your atmega to 368 to have all channels sent. DmxSimple.maxChannel(512);
I will receive my atmega368 tomorrow - but maybe someone here has similar problems.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
