I am a new user and I have a few issues to deal with....First, how do you access the built in programs that came with the controller? I still haven't quite gotten the programming down and my DVD has not arrived in the mail as of yet. Second, do I have to have a terminator if I'm only using one dimmer box? I figure if I can get through my show(DJ) tonight with the pre-programmed scenes, I can learn more when i have more time.Any help is appreciated. Otherwise I have to pay Hubby to sit and press buttons....LOL

Hi DivAngie and welcome to the forums.

I can answer your second question for you, but not the first unfortunately (don't know the Stage Setter line of consoles). Hopefully jingles will be along to answer that one soon.

A terminator is a good idea for really long runs of DMX or when you have a lot of units on a single line of DMX. DMX can handle 32 units per line, be it LEDs, dimmer packs, dimmer racks, moving lights, foggers, scanners, or anything else DMX based. Unless that dimmer pack is at the end of 400+ feet of DMX, you shouldn't have to worry about it, though it is always a good idea and can't hurt. Reflections in DMX don't really start till about 500' or so.

Once again, welcome to the forums and sorry I couldn't be of more help.
