Yes,

Lanbox has has released a fiwmware uppdate with support for Art-net for its dmx boxes, so it should finally work with QC.

I´ll post about compatibility later.

Re: Lanbox with Art-net

The LanBox-LCX works with Art-Net Tools.

I used same adresses as the Entec: 10.20.24.22 for the Lanbox - 10.20.24.23 for the Mac

1.2 and 1.3 beta OK on Leopard

The receive patch is not tested as of yet.

If anyone can point me towards a way to store (to disk), lets say 512 data values in multiple queues, I´d be even more happy.

Re: Storing 512 data values to disk

Do you mean a way to store arbitrary data and access it like as a database (SQLite, NSData, MySQL, etc...) in QC?

So you grab values from artnet, and then make an input query that inserts into a database?

Re: Storing 512 data values to disk

Qui. I mean to make a simple light console to controll stage lighing. I already do the video and music for my productions in QC, so getting the lighting bit inside would be nice.

Grabbing artnet data would be ok if you were to record from another lighting console, but I was more thinking of buliding a simple interface for storing value sets and being able to crosfade and edit these values.

Kineme Value Historian is not too far off, but it lacks the controll and edit possibilities.

SQLite, NSData, MySQL, etc - can you record and retreive to any of these from inside QC?

Re: Storing 512 data values to disk

I have WIP plugin, but I haven't had the chance to work on anything in a bit as my priorities have been elsewhere.

But yes, it's "possible".

KnM Structure tools: - structure to file / saves your data to disk - structure from file / reads your data from disk

That's what i'm using to store my DMX values>>> Works as a charm.

Re: Lanbox with Art-net

Great Franz. Would you be willing to post an example I could pick apart?

Also, is there a way to send tcp messages out of QC?

I would also like to send commands directly to LanBoxs built in sequecer.

The producer says: "...you need TCP. Should be very easy as it's only a few system calls. The comands are are text, so also no problem. We have some perl examples on our download page, but I don't know if QC allows for shell calls."
