Yes the foot-c is the wrong choice for you too. It's clunky too. I have one and tried real hard to like it but it just isn't as easy to use for a band member that is used to a 4Bar or such.
That eBay listing doesn't show the DMX assignments. Can you scan the table from the instructions (or take a pic) and post it?
The other item that I think is unclear to you is the value after the d001 for example is the starting DMX address of the first channel of the fixture. It's an offset value that is added to whatever function is controlled by channel 1.So if channel 1 is red, 2 is green and 3 is blue and 4 is dimmer 5 is flash and you set the fixture to d006 then that fixture will respond to red on channel 6, green on 7, blue on 8 dimmer on nine and flasher on 10. Does that make sense?
Two fixtures can have the same offset and the fixtures will then respond together. You can't have dissimilar fixtures on the same channels because they perform different functions.
Well, it looks like you are in luck; bottom of page 2:press D(save key) for 5 seconds to enter 3 channel mode, then press D again to save.That gives you 3 channel RGB mode. You should be able to use your current lighting controller although you won't have individual control of your lights, they will all move together. You probably still have to address all of them to d001.
It seems if you ever want to go back and get out of 3 channel mode, press A for 3 seconds to revert back to factory setting.For what you want to do an Obey40 would do the trick for ~$120. Or if you have a spare laptop kicking around you could get into software DMX using a freeware program and a $50 dongle.

Well Len - great iead, however all that does is, in practical terms, is adjust the maximum brightness (voltage) of each channel, not change it to three channel use.

Ideally I'd have separate control on each light, but I also don't mind ganging some together in order to save channels - my thought was the three 25 watt lights set to be the same behind the band and two of the 36 watt lights on each side from the front of the band each with its own control.
You sure about that? The chart clearly shows a 4 channel mode with one channel unused.
I guess should have mentioned I'm spending Canadian dollars so the Obey 40 is about $170 CAN - still doable. The Obey10 is about $130 CAN, its a bit more limited (could only add one more light to my collection) but other than that, any thoughts?
