Hog IPC v3.2.5 Lamp controls bug

Hi there,

I recently updated to this software version. I have used the IPC on two events since then and one thing i have noticed which is a little odd is that after lamping down or dousing all the movers i had in the rig, after 5-10 minutes they had all lamped back on again seemingly by themselves?

I had released all cuelists, and cleared the programmer before and after lamping down, yet they would all still lamp on again. After this happening 5 times I gave up trying to trouble shoot it, and pulled the plug, but am stumped as to what it could be?

Thanks, :headbang:

    The fixtures may be set to strike lamp when DMX is present.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your reply, No none of these fixtures are set to that. They are all martin fixtures, and the Automatic Lamp on is set to OFF.

    Make sure (Fade Changes) is not selected when using programmer to Lamp Off fixtures. The console will fade out the control command and will re lamp the fixtures...the time delay is likely the lamps cooling off. (Not hot restrike)
