    I moving mirror that moves the light from a Source 4 around the stage. Its just really bad and tends to work very well but the LD likes them.

    So what do they do other than pan and tilt? The link above states that they are 4ch DMX and 5ch DMX if you get the pro versions?

    I would have thought that 2 channels are all that is needed - 1 for pan and 1 for tilt.

    Could this perhaps be the cause of your problems? You may be assigning the wrong channels?

    Don't know as I have never used them - but just a thought.

    I would suggest calling a moving light specialist.
