    MiniMad w/ Artnet output networked to iPad?

    by neophte » Fri Nov 08, 2019 10:57 pm

    Hi!

    What I want to do: Control a couple hundred LEDs using an iPad wirelessly.

    What I'm trying: The LEDs are connected to a PXlite controller[1] which takes Art-net or sACN input. I am using a miniMad to output Art-net through the ethernet port. I've made an iPad app that can send OSC messages over a network and want the miniMad to listen to those OSC message to figure out what media to send to the PXlite controller.

    My problem: What is the best way to connect the miniMad to a network? My original plan was connect the miniMad to a router or a wifi-enabled RaspberryPi, but the ethernet port on the miniMad is taken up to connect to the PXlite. And from going through the forums, it seems a usb-ethernet dongle will not work [2]. What alternatives do I have?

    Another idea, would I be able to use one of the usb ports of the miniMad to output Artnet, and have a usb-ethernet dongle for that purpose instead?
