After reading this thread, I have decided to incorporate a GRX-3506 in to my (under construction) home theater. I would like to control all my lighting through the use of a theater PC, with the Main Lobby Software. However, I am left a bit confused about how exactly to hook up my PC to the Grafik Eye. I understand that I first need to purchase a GRX-3506 seeing as how I want to control my lighting via PC and I need to control 6 zones.
What confuses me is what unit I need to go from the GE to the PC. As I read there are two options.
The way I'm reading it the GRX-PRG as the ability to control zones as well as scenes, where as the GRX-RS232 can only control scenes.
Additionally, the GRX-PRG has astronomic clock built in, where as the GRX-RS232 does not.
Seeing as how I don't really need to control individual zones, nor do I really have a need to use the astronomic clock I guess I would rather save the bucks. However if someone can post a list identifying what each can and can't do I may be swayed to purchase the GRX-PRG.
On the other-hand I could be Completely Wrong in my understanding of the GE.
Either way I need some help finding the right direction.
Thanks in advance for all the assistance,
