In reality, the desk doesn't "know" if the lights are on, just that it sent the command.

I suggest that you plot a "lamp check" cue that points all of the lights where you can see them, and runs a simple effect "chase" so you can see where the "holes" are in the chase.

Sounds like a great use of RDM. We're not there yet.

Yes, you are right, the desk does know what "it" did to the light, Strike it, Douse It, you name it.

Of course, external factors can always invalidate that information. For example, a console shows that a channel is at 50% but in reality the power to the dimmer rack is switched off. The desk still shows you it has driven the channel regardless. That is useful, it tells us something is wrong!!!

In the case of the moving light, knowing what the desk has told the light to do, helps you know when the light does not come on. Likewise useful and after all, not all moving lights are RDM....

Speaking of RDM - what is the official position on RDM relative the Pallete/LightPalette line? Will our hardware support it? Is HC and/or Strand interested...?

The hardware does support it. We are more interested in ACN than RDM.

What hit it for me was when I walked in Wybron's booth at the show and they started a "discover" and 2-3 minutes later it was still doing it's thing.

It's great if you have devices that support it, but outside of Wybron scrollers, I'm not sure who else is excited about putting it in their products.
