    Does anybody has experience with controlling Beyond via DMX In or Artnet when DMX application software (ArtNet is an option as well) is running on the same computer?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Hi SHavok,
    how did you configure MA2 and how did you configure beyond so both applications "see" and communicate with each other? I understand how to configure Beyond (DMX Input) but I cannot see that the control-application (in your environment MA2) is sending the right way. So how has SACN to be configured on MA2 site?

    Thanks in advance

    Sound like you will need to find about the MS loopback adapter this allows a windows PC to loop back to itself allowing both pieces of software to see each other , can you state which dmx apps your trying to control, there can be some apps like elation obsidian onyx which start their universe count at 0 instead of 1 which can also lead to confusion
