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?

yes the DMX is working fine.
See image of connected wires.
