I dont know. I dont really know what your setup is like and what you want to do.
How does your DMX transceiver output? Still wifi? If so, and it can open a simple udp/tcp socket, then yeah it should be fairly easy to adjust the Arduino sketch.
Actually is just a kind of converter to rgb led strip, what has 4 wires. I am not using the WS2812B.
DMX is a kind of communication between the arduino and the other board, that converts to RGB.

This is the board.

    Hm - as this Philips is Crap - good looking but crap - well - I have teh skills but no idea what is required to burn your Code on the arduino ... can you point me to some infos about this basics?

    In most cases, a usb cable and the arduino ide. In some cases (where the arduino does not have a usb connector) you will need a usb to ttl adapter aswell.

    Hi,

    there are more than one way to opload the code to the arduino. The simplest one is to install the Arduino IDE. Then load the *.ino file of AtmoOrb.
    Now you need to install the libraries which are needed for AtmoOrb. As far as i know this should be these...

    - Adafruit_CC3000
    - Adafruit_NeoPixel

    To get these libraries click on "Sketch" -> "include library"-> "Manage libraries". Search for the libraries and install it.
    Now you should be able to compile the AtmoOrb sketch. To upload it to your arduino got to "Werkzeuge" -> "Platine" (i got the german version installed...dont know how this menu item is named in english version) select your arduino. Finally you need to select your programmer via "Werkzeuge" -> "Programmer".
    but i dont know which type of programmer you need to select.... But i think @Lightning303 can answer this question :)

    Hm ... back again :)

    When I set in atmowin to IP I get this in the console:

    IP: 192.168.0.150

    AT+CIFSR

    +CIFSR:confused:TAIP,"192.168.0.150"
    +CIFSR:confused:TAMAC,"18:fe:34:a2:43:a3"

    OK

    AtmoOrb:stripe:address:192.168.0.150,49692;
    busy s...

    0,CONNECT
    0,CLOSED

    when i set to UDP I get only

    IP: 192.168.0.150

    AT+CIFSR

    +CIFSR:confused:TAIP,"192.168.0.150"
    +CIFSR:confused:TAMAC,"18:fe:34:a2:43:a3"

    OK

    AtmoOrb:stripe:address:192.168.0.150,49692;
    busy s...

    and it only sets teh colour to the one defind in the listing ...

    Any idea wheer it ent wrong?

    Ah - and I'm using 1.12 and the compatible version of atmowin

    Not sure what AtmoWin has to do with any of this.
    Make sure you use the right firmware on the esp8266, the version the code has been used and tested with is included in the sketch files comment.

    DC12V is the correct power. The LC8808 is a 3-channel constant current LED drive with resumable data transfers and internal display patterns. There are three open-drain constant current outputs, with a build-in PWM of gray scale. The range of input power is from +9V to +15V, and voltage-endurance of LED port is +12V. There is a...

    @HomeY, never mind found my own answer by looking at close-up of the board on Amazon: pin 11 is marked as "~11" defined as being part of the digital PWM group that must be needed for AmbiBox software, but not for the FastLED.show() command during setup.
