Hey, I am having troubles with my DMX shield on top of my arduino uno. My installations consist of the following parts: Temperature sensor, LCD, DMX shield and LED lighting. When I use my arduinog without the DMX shield I can read the temperature on the LCD. But when I put the DMX shield on top of the arduino and connect the wires on the same place I get strange characters that don't exist. I am still able to control the LEDs so that is working fine but I cannot read the temperature of the display.

Someone having an answer for me. I am still pretty new with this and don't mind the wiring it is a bit of a mess.

Thanks in advance!

What DMX shield are you using? Sounds like maybe the LCD and DMX have pin conflicts or maybe a power problem.

I am using the Tinkerkit DMX master shield.

Does the DMX work okay without the LCD?
How is it all wired together?
