I have been working on a costuming project for school that incorporates a number of LEDs and EL-wire controlled from an Arduino LilyPad. I am attempting to add an element of DMX control from a lighting console. I have purchased a conceptinetics DMX shield and downloaded the appropriate libraries for it from:
Using the example slave code and an Uno I was able to set up a slave device and get full response from the console signal. When I tried to transfer the set up to the Lilypad I was not seeing any response to the DMX signal. Right now I have wires jumping from the LilyPad to the shield on the 5V, ground, and RX pins. Is there a connection that I'm missing? Or do you think there is something in the code that needs to be changed?
I guess I'm also wondering if the LilyPad has the serial capabilities to host the DMX shield. Based on my understanding of the specs it should be able to, but perhaps I am overlooking something. Does anyone have any thoughts on the compatibility issue?
Thanks for the help!
