There is very little documentation for this product, I have little to work with. Sorry!

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.

there are 5 channels on my version, PAN, TILT, PAN SPEED, TILT SPEED, RELAY. the relay switches on and off the outlet built into it.

I would suggest calling a moving light specialist.
