Step 2: Set the DMX Equipment to a Known Start Address

When we do telephone support, we often suggest setting the first lighting fixture to DMX channel 60.  This makes it easy to access via the musical notes near the middle C octave. Once the system is stable, the DMX start address can be set to any number in the range [1 128].

Your DMX equipment will have a manual for making this change.  It may involve setting DIP switches or manipulating buttons on a front panel.
