BTW, thought I'd chime in on myDMX Go. I had my first problem with it at this past weekend's gig. Still not sure what went wrong. I had both mini-T bars setup, 4 Chauvet 255 movers, 2 Chauvet Colorstrip minis and a dozen 9X18 uplights. Everything worked when I set it up, no problems. Went over to the ceremony site and came back about 2 hours later. The uplights were still on but I lost control of the t-bar racks. Rebooted the DMX box, the Donner transmitter and rebooted my tablet 2-3 times. For the first 30 minutes it would work for a few minutes, then lose connection, reboot, repeat. After the 3rd reboot it went back to working and no more problems for the rest of the evening.

It's tougher when you don't know if it's the box or the Donners. Donners could be getting interference from other things in the venue or from the myDMX Go itself.

Yea, that's what's bugging me. Everything tested out perfectly for about an hour. It only failed to work the first 30 minutes of the reception, then everything went back to being just fine. Since switching to the myDMX, I've been using one of the Donner transmitters. Couldn't get my stronger transmitter to work and didn't take the time to debug it. I guess I'll have to do that debug this week and will try again next weekend.

I know some folks have been moving their Donners away from the myDMX Go with a small cable. Might help.

I love my wash FX2s but I would think they are extremely bright to be used times 4 for a wedding reception. maybe I am wrong. are you dimming them down at all? would 2 suffice?

I am NOT a fan of facades.
But that one looks slick!

My OCD notes the sub is not quite dead center on the facade.....:sick:
Great! Now you ruined it for Chris AND the rest of us!
Damn you! Can't you leave well enough alone??? :laugh:
