I bought two storm chasers a year ago and very pleased with it...so, I decided to add two more last week to make four (2+2=4! Hey...I did pay attention in class a long time ago). Now, I'm stoked to put on some really cool effects with these as I plug them into my Eclipse DMX.
BUT, first of all the difference: my old ones have dip switches and the new does not. My first thought was that now, I can just dial in the DMX channel and tada! Once I had everything 'dialed' in, it was ready to program some scenes. Well, here's what's F$%@ up: the effects are different for the old and new storm chasers! Although they look the same, they do different effects. Let's say I put it on chase effect 152 on channel one...Well, the old StormChasers are doing something totally different from what the new ones are. So, this really, really sucks.
I have the units patched on the same DMX channel, using 31 channels so I can program some sick scenes and also run the built in ones as well.
Blizzard...Please HELP! Can I trade my two old ones for the new ones...or vice versa? I just need them to be the same.
