I'm using a american dj / elation stage setter 8 that is installed in a church.

I couldn't find it in the user manual or a video on Youtube.

How do i set the DMX channel to something other than 1-16? How do i set it to 60? To control a fixture that has an address of 60?

Thanks

here is a link to the owners manual.
I own two of these, and as far as I know they are for DMX channels 1-16 only. maybe I am wrong.

It can only control up to 16 channels.

Yep. Gotta work around it's limitations. I believe this controller was designed more specifically for halogen par cans, which only need a single DMX channel each for dimming when connected to a dimmer pack.
