I have a Hollywood Strobe 1500 DMX risen unfortunately it made some problems and I had to create a separate fixture.

The stroboscope only works if the start address is set to 1. Then it takes 3 DMX channels.

1 Channel: Strobe
2 Channel: Strobe
3 Channel: Dimmer

Channel 1 and 2 must always be identical so that the strobe runs smoothly.
To make this easier, I created macros. (All images are from the original fixture freestylers folder.)

Hope it can help someone. It does not have the error occurs also with you. However, I have discovered a similar problem with reviews.

Wow...I've had the same trouble with some cheap Chinese strobes with dodgy DMX but never thought to add the extra channel. Good find!

Thank you very much!!!!!!! I had been trying so hard to find a solution and finally your workaround fixed my Astrolite Strobe. I configured the 3 channel fixture (strobe, strobe, dimmer), set up in DMX address n°1 (1-3) and it finally worked out. Excellent post!!! Congrats.
