I am set up for the show tonight and I'm having a problem I can't come up with an answer for.
I have a Avo Pearl Console, connected to an ETC Sensor (not plus) 24 dimmer rack on line 1, and some Mac 2ks on line 2. This morning I programmed all my lights with the console on stage (ran two 25' 5pin homeruns). After programming I moved my console to FOH. Data running through a 300' dmx snake. I know I tested the macs, and want to say I tested conventionals, but I am not sure.
Later in the day I connected my hazer (DF50) into the "A Through" on the ETC rack, and walk to FOH to test it out. No response from hazer, or any conventionals. ETC rack says "No data line A". After trouble shooting my cable, and data snake, I plug the line (at FOH) into a Leprecon 612 and the ETC rack works fine. Thinking its a bad output on my Pearl I re-softpatch to lines 3 and 4; nothing. I then tried sending it out of my know working line (Mac line 2). I even switched out the brain on the ETC rack.
Finally I activate the input B on the ETC rack, plug in DMX and the rack immediately comes alive.
What happened to make the ETC rack not respond to the Pearl on line A, but still respond to the Leprecon?
