sACN random channel flicker

Post by Ryan.gottlieb » Tue Oct 13, 2020 12:50 pm

Using DMX Transmit, I setup the IQ tester to transmit on universe 5, with a source of sACN Universe 50. univ 50 is generated from a paradigm system on a local network. sACN viewer in the video below shows random values being generated for some channels. Is this expected behavior?

All Universe 50 should be is Channel 1 & 3 doing a sine wave.

Is it possible that there was more than 1 universe 50 sACN source active on the network?

The IQTester is not able to merge multiple sources in version 1.0.1. If multiple same universe sources are coming in, then the output stream will contain flickering data from all of the same universe sources.
