Cannot connect DMXKing USB-DMX on OS X El Capitan

Postby Zotic_dj » Sun Nov 27, 2016 6:11 pm

Hi everyone,

Recently I've made the switch to MagicQ from LightKey after discovering how awful it was. So I've programmed a very sophisticated show on a small rig after downloading MagicQ onto my Mac running on El Capitan. But I have not been able to get my USB-DMX Interface to work with it. It's a DMXKing Ultra DMX micro usb-DMX dongle which I believe is Enttec based and the manual for it says it's supports MagicQ.

Any idea what I need to do to make it work? I've tried force disabling the FTDI drivers in terminal, set the Enttec mode in MagicQ, set VCP+FDTI, auto DMX profile like the manual says to do but MagicQ still will not detect the interface. Plug it in and the light blinks slowly indicating power but no DMX signal in or out. Is there a certain trick to getting this interface to work? I've tried searching everywhere for this but no luck. Should I just buy MagicDMX? I definitely don't want to give up on MagicQ as I really like the software.

Just buy a MagicDMX Full interface and your problem is solved.

Or go for a Artnet node from Chamsys or ELC
No driverconflict anymore

I know this answer is years late, but the DMXKing ultraDMX micro interface worked fine for me under OSX El Cap.

Plug and play. Universe 1 set to Entec Pro/Lumen Radio.

Hi...I have a clean installation of last Public Beta of El Capitan. Definitive version will be released this or next week (we'll know on 9th)
I tried with b46 and yesterday I had an attempt also with b47.For what I understand problem is SIP, System Integrity Protection. Apple doesn't allow Apps to modify system files. Period.
Kernel Extension could be added or edited only by certified or signed developer.
