    The ethernet port, currently, is for Hog network...connecting to DP2000's, computer running Hog3PC, Wysiwyg...things like that.

    So, at this time, for Artnet or any other flavor of DMX over ethernet, you need a box at FOH. I personally use Pathport running Artnet.

    I doubt it on Ipc,
    it is probably a bit underpowered processor wise for that.
    You should be able to add the DP8000 to it though and get Artnet from that.
    That is of course speculation, as the DP8000 is not released yet.

    only the full boar has artnet capability out of the console.

    Which is still not fully implemented..

    Basically at the moment your only Artnet / DMX over IP is to use an external box to convert it for the time being..

    What is confusing?
    Unlimited number of DMX channels via Ethernet DP's
    You can connect DP2000's and, when they are released, DP8000's to an iPC. This would give you "unlimited number of DMX channels."

    You can connect to visualizers via ethernet (Wyg, Vision). There is no mention of Artnet on any of the consoles at this time (Roadhog Fullboar is a FUTURE implementation).

    I guess I don't understand what's confusing.
