Revisiting the Enttec DMX USB Pro



  • I have struggled on and off again with connectivity with my Enttec USB DMX Pro.  It worked beautifully for about a year, then it just stopped.  It works in the other applications I use it with just fine, just Izzy doesn't see it.  I have tried all of the suggestions on the forums, FTDI driver issues, Pro Manager, etc.  I even tried it on a brand new machine with a fresh install of Izzy.  Other apps work just fine, not Izzy.  Is there a concise fix for this?  I am running a MBP 10.10.5.  with Izzy 2.1.  Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Frustrated


  • @thesadfox strange, because i run the same setup and it works rock solid. but i only use it with my "Isadora "Lightboard which i use quite a lot. There is some Issue with FTDI Drivers.

    You find more Information here :  http://www.enttec.com/?main_menu=Products&pn=70304&show=faq 
    Hope this helps

  • Thanks,

    I have tried all of that.  When I disable the FTDI driver thru the OS X FTDI Driver Control 1.0.4 app, it does not show up on the USB bus in the System Report.  But when I enable the Serial FTDI driver, it does show up on the USB bus in the System Report.  The Pro Manager application sees it just fine as well.  
    Thanks,
    Confused.

    Just tried it today on my MacBook Pro with 10.10.5 and it works fine for me. What FTDI driver version did you install exactly? I have installed version 2.3 for 10.9 and above. Could it also be that you have installed the D2XX Direct Drivers as well?
