Without modifying these the issues cannot be resolved. I have received a very small number of samples directly from microchip and these will be sent Vellman to the more technically savvy who have helped out already.
This package will be uploaded to web shortly but In the meantime I will happily email it to anyone k80622 it. Where can I find this modified DLL? It is a drop in replacement for the existing firmware chip and requires no soldering or circuit modifications to work.
Velleman K –
There are a number of possibilities for further upgrades like pixel support and hyper DMX and other stuff. I’ve restored it back now.
This new firmware, coded “VX,” is a complete independent clean room design. The Proof of concept package is now in its third release after some valuable feedback. In general though, before buying a device, one should do a research about how well it is supported.
The important thing for now is to get the chips and send them of to those who are on my beta tester list. This enables faster transfer rates when when the data consists of consecutive 0s.
I have been busy helping out with some open source software while waiting for the chips I velpeman for this project to arrive. As this time I do not know how this will fit in but there has been a fair amount of research happening.
Ignoring the overhead in the protocol this allows for around 1. Vellemaj way this trick is implemented though is poor and can actually make things worst! Allegedly they were shipped last week so they should not be far off.
This project is now live! Sadly they are still somewhere between Singapore and Australia. Despite the availability of newer technology that would have allowed for many improvements the K as sold today still works the same as the very first units sold. A proof of concept package is available now free of charge. This wiki will remain and be updated with more technical k80622.
So far this appears to be working well and it is now entering the Beta test stage.
Q Light Controller+
The development of this new software has delayed vellfman release of the firmware by a few days but it does represent a huge leap in the development of this update. Sorry for the lack of updates.
If so let me know. But to my advantage to keep anyway It was designed in a time where cheap microcontrollers with a USB peripherials only supported USB working in low speed mode. I will make some testing and keep you posted on my results. Author Post time Subject Direction: The designer of the original firmware made some attempt to address the poor throughput of their unit. However verified by several people Velleman decided to remain with the low speed mode and not upgrade the performance of the K, probably to ensure backwards compatibility with the units they had already shipped.
The new software has velpeman tested with FreeStlyer and LightPlayer as well as the simple demos provided from Vellemaan. What it does is count the number of consecutive zero value channels, If and when they aline with the start of the payload of the USB packet and rather than send them as individual channels it instead sends a count of the number of zero k80662 over the USB HID interface.
Also don’t forget to thank Simon for his excellent work in doing the linux and MAC port. I don’t want to pay a fortune for this but I have found two models that are not too expensive. Can you tell me exactly what you need from them in order to solve the problem with Velleman device.
