No DMX output on 10.12 with FTDI

Post by derchris » Tue Jun 13, 2017 8:53 pm

Hi,

I have a working HW setup using a FTDI USB Adapter, and a XLR to Serial Adapter.
This has been tested on the latest QLC+ version on Linux.
However, using the same setup on my OSX 10.12.4 I get no output.
I have heard about issues with the Apple FTDI driver on 10.10 (http://www.mommosoft.com/blog/2014/10/2 ... s-x-10-10/)
But I have no such driver, and are currently using the latest FTDI driver (http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP/Mac ... v2_4_2.dmg)
Anyone idea what is wrong here?
I can rule out a HW issue, so it must be some kind of software/driver issue.
Any help much appreciated.

Can you tell us what was the problem? It may be interesting for the next one who has the same issue.
Thanks!
