1- you are using ArtNet in Unicast mode ? If yes, does it work in broadcast on this machine, when it doesn't in unicast ?
2- Are both your computers on the same subnet ? ie both have IP 192.168.1.XXX with IP mask 255.255.255.0
3- Which version of MadMapper ? 2.5.1 ?
Also, I remember that when changing the IP or network mask od the computer, there was something to do in Pixelite soft to get ArtNet working again (maybe restarting pixelite)
Let me know

If not, you can download firmware V1.0.2 from here: http://www.advateklights.com/resources/download-info/pixlite-mkii-firmware/
I'm not thinking that could cause the issue you are seeing with MM on your second PC, but worth noting in-case.
Also currently the PixLite MkII is having Art-Net V4 developed into the controllers, which includes a better reporting mechanism. This is currently available in BETA firmware if you contact Advatek support. It needs the sending software to implement the Art-Net 4 update also. I'm not sure if this is the answer to your problem though, seeing as it's not reporting any universes back on the second PC by the sound of it.

You can activate logging and reproduce the issue, we may find an error in the log if that's a socket port issue. To activate logging in MM, Cmd+Click on Tools menu, choose "Enable Log", then you can restart MM, reproduce the issue, and send the log with menu Tools / Send Current Log
(or you can see the log in "Console" application, FILES / ~/Library/Logs/GarageCube/MadMapper

mad-matt wrote:There's no known issue in ArtNet output of MadMapper. We use it in many situations and so many people have been driving LEDs in various environement that I'm very confident in it. However, if you can drive the Pixelite with LuminetMonitor, we'll check that deeply.
- Download Luminet Monitor here: http://www.luminex.be/support/product-support/
- Start the app and choose your network adapter
- In "DMX Generator" at bottom left, press "Add Generator"
- Check the "State" checkbox of your generator, now it starts broadcasting
Does it work ? If it doesn't, there's a pb with your computer configuration.
And please let me know if it works in broadcast (deactivate unicast option).
Can you send the result of terminal command "ifconfig" ?
