Many modern lights have a setting that allows them to stay in the last dmx state they received. If you make sure that is on you won't lose anything except changes if the controller goes down or needs to reboot.

If Dave Guilford is using My DMX, a new hardware item shown at Infocomm is MY DMX RM.  It stores 16 scenes that are available at the touch of a button.  There is no merge or thru feature, but it could give an instant backup with an external switch.  Of course there is no way to know what software package is being used so this may be useless information.

Ya exactly.  This is what Iím after.  Now link me to a basic XLR source switcher, but for dmx (reversed ends from audio).

Iím not trying to buy another laptop and sub/dmx box.  Just the actual device thatíll let me quickly switch between dmx sources. 

You guys are making too big of a deal on this.

How long would it take to unplug the DMX into you system and plug it into your backup controller?  Or for that matter if you had the connectors laying where you would lay a switch it would take maybe 2 seconds longer?  Yes a switch would be better-but as others have said-I'd rather put my effort into fixing why it breaks than making recovery easier.
