Steve,

This is not surprising at all! The thing that makes DMX so forgiving is the fact that it is spitting the same packet out over and over up to 44 times/second. This masks all types of sins.

RDM by its nature is going to require a better quality infrastructure than what you were able to get away with in the past with DMX. This includes using termination and the right type of cable.

The good thing about this is that RDM will make it much easier to spot all identify and pinpoint all types of intermittent issues that previously would have resulted in random flaky behavior of the fixtures.
