What's new

Changes from 2.0.0 to 2.0.1


  • Fix an issue in V2.0.0 where very intermittent Cyan 'RDM Identify' flash was seen in some setups.
  • Fixed an issue where unit might not boot correctly if connected to PC via USB cable (no implication for end user, this fix is only to improve internal factory process).


DMX Mapping Change in V1.2.0 - Multizone Modes

Versions before V1.2.0 had the Fan Channel control in the FIRST SLOT, for Multizone Modes.  In V1.2.0 (and later versions) this moved to the LAST SLOT.

Make sure to use the correct DMX profiles in your console, or Multizone modes won't work correctly.
