Ok. So. I'm having a little discussion here with a very good friend of mine. He's managed to completely confuse me. I've always been told that a single 5-pin DMX cable is used to carry one lighting universe- that is 512 channels. But I'm told, that actually no, it carries 1024 channels- 2 universes. I can see how that would work, He says that: " It was originally intended to have the ability to carry 2 universes, using all 5 pins. Hence, when using 1 universe there are 2 spare pins." 1 pin for ground. 2 pins for universe 1. 2 pins for universe 2. (= 5) And that makes perfect sense. So. If a desk allowed, could the cables I currently have carry 1024 channels?
