So I got the RS485 chips in the mail today and got them installed into the 2 boards that needed them and they are working. HOWEVER, as I was putting them together in the cat-5 daisy chain I realized that I have another board that is not working…. will this ever end?!? Needless to say I have been working on that and running out of options. I still have a few things left to try but I’m not holding my breath. *If* I can’t get it working by next Monday/Tuesday I am working up a work-around that will allow me to run most of the lights and the show should still look cool… but will leave me wanting MORE! Just means we will have to come back bigger, stronger and BETTER in 2010!
