Sale/Trade / Want to buy or trade Lynx USB DMX dongle
« Last post by koropuxa on December 11, 2017,  »
Hello everyone,
Need help, real bad, actually.
I have all my Christmas lights setup and ready to go, however I cannot find my USB dongle. It got lost, most likely during the move.
I would love to buy a kit or assembled dongle.
I have a few Lynx Express PCB''s with heats sinks if anyone is interested to trade.
I would also consider buying just a Lynx dongle PCB.
Really appreciate it.

Lynx EtherDongle / Re: Unicast Support
« Last post by CaptainMurdoch on December 11, 2017,  »
In FPP, try setting your E1.31 interface to eth0 and your etherdongle universes to multicast, then add in a unicast universe pointed to an interface on the wifi network.  I have not tested that scenario before but it might work.

Lynx EtherDongle / Unicast Support
« Last post by lboucher on December 10, 2017,  »
Hi All

I want to send just a few channels out over wireless. I understand that if I go unicast, I can limit the amount of data going out over wireless. It looks like the etherdongle doesn't support unicast though.

I think the only thing I need to do is be able to set the ip address.

Is the source to the firmware available so I can set an ip? Or is there another way.

Thanks.

Lynx Express / Re: Lynx Light Curve Utility???
« Last post by rjhodgefamily on December 09, 2017,  »
So the xml isn't too bad. it is a little ugly when just looking at it. But the Strings Are base 64 encoded binary. You can use something like You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to decode the base64 string to 255 2 byte numbers which represents the entire light curve. This will represent the 8 bits of light granularity that DMX allows. Each 2 byte number can range from 0-1023 or in hex 0000 - 03FF.

So to create you new hex file you can just type it in any text editing tool. Just make sure you do not have any carriage returns. You can then modify the same link as above to convert from hex to text. Just reverse everything. And switch it over to encode on the middle section.

Now just copy and paste the new text into the xml file.

<MY_AWESOME_CURVE>new base 64 string</MY_AWESOME_CURVE>
<space></space>

Save the file and you should now have access in the LE config tool. As you can see this is quite the PITA which is why I was hoping for the Light Curve Utility. I might have to start writing my own program in the off season. As I for see this coming up more and more as LED's are more prevalent. Unfortunately I only program in Mac stuff normally. So not sure how much benefit it will be to other people.

If you can decode the xml file then sure, you can do it that way.  The xml is not just a series of hex codes so if you figure out what how it is configured, please let me know.   Also, make sure that the set you are working with are dimmable.  Some of the sets are not and will go from full bright to very dim almost instantly and holding them in that state will fry the set.

So it sounds like I need to use DMX Deck to figure out my curves. And then manually edit the config XML to add my new curve to the list of available curves. And then use the LE Config Utility to program it into the LE.
