    Your other option is to make sure there is no DMX going to your fixture on powerup.

    For example - unplug the DMX line for your SHOWGUNs from the console/opto splitter or whatever and then power them up.....when you are ready, plug the cable back in and then HOME them.

    Hope this helps:)

    Though, in my experience, when you power up a showgun without DMX the lamp still strikes, the fixture will eventually shut itself down without DMX, but initial home includes a lamp strike.

    Sounds kinda like a misfeature to me . . . . I wonder why they did that, when older HES stuff didn't fire without DMX present . . . . hardly seems like an improvement . . .

    Some opto splitters will interfere with this as well and make the fixture "think" it has DMX when there is actually no signal from a console.

    Brian - are your GUNs all running the latest fixture firmware?
