DMX_PERSONALITY_DESCRIOTION
 
Hello,

in ANSI E1.20 on page 68. is written
"
The GET_COMMAND_RESPONSE message includes the current DMX512 Personality setting and also the total number of personalities available. These personalities shall be consecutively numbered within the responder starting from 1.
"
Which personality index should I use to GET_DMX_PERSONALITY_DESCRIPTION?
from 1 to total number of personalities
or from 0 to (total number of personalities-1)?

Best regards

Tomas Poruba

Take a look at this thread, it has a similar discussion
http://www.rdmprotocol.org/forums/showthread.php?p=1136

Based on my reading, the personality would run from 0x01 to 0xFF (or as you said, "1 to total number of personalities").

The key phrase is: "These personalities shall be consecutively numbered within the responder starting from 1."

That means that you would go from 1 to n # of personalities.
