The green LED on my USB DMX dongle comes  once I plug in the USB chord and stays on even when I'm not sending a signal. The dongle seems to work fine with my Express

I was wondering if the green light being on all the time means that something is conducting when it shouldn't be.

Any words of wisdom are appreciated.

The DMX dongle is always sending a signal.  If it has no data, then it is sending all DMX channels off.  This is done to prevent DMX controllers from picking up stray signals and randomly turning on lights when it is not desired, such as in between shows.
If at first you don't succeed,
your not cut out for sky diving
