The new Hog III PC software is available for free from http://www.flyingpig.com but in order to actually run a show from it you must by the widget which converts DMX to USB and plugs into your computer
well the version of the software in that listing is limited to 36 channels so thats pretty much useless unless you plan on running it for a blackbox or just running two movers off of it...nez said:have any of you ever heard of Enttec Open DMX USB Interface + Software "Starter Pack" because that is wat i m lookin to get here it is on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/Enttec-Open-DMX...75450QQcategoryZ29942QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem
nez said:well 36 channels would give me 36 individual lights or say 74 lights double up so that is probly all i will need at the moment

If you are buying for the future and cost isn't that much of an issue I would choose the widget for the HogIIIPC with hesitation. In addition to offering 512 channels on the widget one can add more widgets. Though you may not see the need for 100 channels now there may be potential for several in the future. Moving lights eat up channels faster than you would imagine.
