sACN Priority

Postby mjbramley » August 3rd, 2017, 5:26 am

I am running two lighting consoles (main and back up) both outputting sACN feeding multiple Pathport nodes that provide DMX to my fixtures. I have set the sACN priority on the main console to 100 and the sACN priority on the backup console to 50.

Using Pathport Manager I select a node then in the "Node Properties" tab under "Device Properties" in the "Base Device" tab the last property "sACN Input Priority" is set to "Enabled".

I thought that this should make the two ports of the node respect the sACN priority but they are merging the two sACN streams on a HTP basis.

What do I need to do to make my main and backup sACN priority work.

P.S. The sACN properties for each port of the node appear to be settings for when the ports are used as DMX inputs that convert DMX to sACN. The manual is not very clear on these settings.

Any help appreciated.
