Hi Robb, 

Any sketch that works on an old Arduino board will also work on any new one.  

Best, 
Mitch.

thx for the responses

@PhilIP nice boards! (your pic rendered) are those mathertels? 
my usb>rs-485(dmx) adapter/converter has 3 connectors (grd, D+ & D-) which connect to a neutrik xlr panel connector (see attached). 
​
@Mitch although there are lots of posts/pages describing how to code dmx on arduinos, most of the work has been done related to transmitting dmx (mostly on pre-uno versions, which are very hard to find) and not receiving it. the few libraries for receiving dmx are quite old & don't seem to be very straight forward, i.e. require editing hardwareserial.cpp at a keyword that does not actually exist in the file (ArDMX). 
thanks for the invite to hhn. food not bombs just brought me a wheelchair, so i might be able to take you up on it soon.

cheers

I've been working on DMX stuff for a little bit... have been soldering up DMX interface boards at NB tonight, in fact!
[picture of DMX boards removed]
Is your FTDI to RS485 adapter designed for DMX output -- i.e. on one end it has a female XLR connector that would plug into one of the boards above?
Can you email me a photo of your setup so I can get a better idea of how the RS485 modules are wired up?

Cheers,Phil

Hi Robb, 

If you don't get an answer here, try searching for "Arduino DMX" you'll find plenty that people have worked out.  Also, please come to Circuit Hacking Monday, every Monday at 7:30pm, where people help each other with everything hardware. 

Cheers, 
Mitch.

hey gang,
anyone know how to code an arduino to receive dmx and output pwm to leds? i think i've tried everything on the arduino site's dmx page but nothing seems to work.

my setup is qlcplus > ftdi to rs-485 adapter > ttl to rs-485 module > arduino

i will come sweep, mop & dust noisebridge, when my broken foot heals, if someone can point me in the right direction.

thx for being there
