    How to setup Enttech DMX Pro Mk2 on Mac

    Can’t wait (i.e., impatient) for tech support to open tomorrow — hoping you guys might be helpful. Just got an Enttech DMX Pro Mk2 (USB) for my MacBook Air (2011). Problem is it continues to blink white, which apparently means idle and ready, and I am not able to get any Qlab commands to be...

    QLab alternatives for old macs

    Our theater recently had a 2005 power mac fall into our laps, is there any way we can put this thing to use besides as a door stop? I was hoping to use it for audio as it has optical audio out. We need software similar to qlab, but will run on a power pc cpu.

    Automated Fixtures Troubleshooting Flickering MAC2000 Performance

    I have recently gotten my hands on several Martin MAC2000 Performance fixtures that have been heavily used but still seemed to be working fine. I did a very quick test of all the functions with them sitting on my stage and everything looked fine. I have now hung them (so they are upside down...

    Creating a custom scoreboard projection

    I'm trying to make myself a simple live digital scoreboard projection, but what I thought would be an easy task is proving either outrageously expensive or tough on a Mac. All I'm looking for is to overlay text boxes on a scoreboard graphic and manipulate it without the audience seeing my mouse...

Suddenly it began displaying an "OPEN" error which according to the general users manual means the Lamp access panel is not fully secured. I have checked the panel many times and replaced the...

    External solid state drive

    A smaller theatre I work with has a lovely iMac 5k that has the high end specs that had been refurbished so we got it on the cheap. The only flaw with it is it carries a regular 7200 RPM hard drive. I'm already aware of how difficult it is to open a new iMac ("moderate" actually) so I was...

    Any successful RS232 Serial control of a projector via a Mac?

    I have been bashing my head against the wall trying to control any of my 15 projectors via serial commands and my macbook pro. I am using a USB serial interface with CoolTerm and a cross over serial cable. I see the usb serial driver and looping back pin 2 & 3 shows the exact hex code that...
