DP8000 as a regular DMX Node

Hello friends,

I was wondering if I could use the DP8000 as an Ethernet to DMX interface? The venue I am currently working out has ETC consoles with a mixture of ETC Net3 Gateways and Doug Fleenor Node4's. One of our Node4's is currently going out, so we are in discussion of buying another Net3, but we will be making the switch to Hog in January, and I would prefer to have a DP8000, but I am not sure if it will work with out ETC consoles in the short term? We are running sACN for everything, if that matters? Thanks guys!!

    The DP 8000 will only work with Hog consoles. It will not function as an art-net node

    You can assign Art-Net input to physical outputs of DP8000 by Hog PC, then unplug Hog PC and DP8000 will work standalone like Art-Net to DMX converter (until you reboot it).
    I just did it :)
