I have seen in previous posts regarding 5 pin to 3 pin DMX conversion questions, to just use the first 3 pins on the 5 pin to connect to the 3 pins of the XLR connector, since the 4th and 5th pins were vacant or not used at all. Since my in-house DMX uses all 5 pins of the connector and the cable is 2 twisted pairs with braided shield, how would I connect to the 3 pin connector? I have tried using only one of the twisted pairs with no luck. I am thinking that I need to use the positives of each pair and the negatives of each pair to connect to pins 3 and 2 with the shield still on pin 1. Does that make sense? Has anyone else done this? Am I way off base? What is the solution?
