Am sending LED data from Max wirelessly via UDP packets. They are :: RGB formatted into DMX, up to 512 channels, so maximum for a standard DMX usage = 1536, + one index byte at front. The setup could use many more channels as well, but this is within DMX specifications, and it's plenty for our purposes here.
The hardware only wants data formatted as ASCII, ints won't do it. Essentially, it would be great if the udp.send had a flag: default as-is, or switch on "convert incoming int packet list to ASCII", able to handle lists as long as udp.send can manage. Or, of course, a conversion beforehand.
This is a continued post from about a month ago, where my brother and I were getting an LED installation ready for a wedding. (Thanks to volker and Scott F. for their help during this!) Now there's no real rush, but this hurdle would save having to make multiple control boards. One of his boards can handle the full # of DMX channels (a lot more, actually, as it's a SecureDigital video / DMX / whatever playback device as well) so we want to use just one if possible. All it needs is that big ASCII list in.
Any help around this probably-quite-simple problem would be fantastic, it's getting in the way of the fun stuff ... thanks !
