Eos 3.0.0 and the IO Section of the Test App for Gio


When Eos 3.0.0 is installed on a machine, it also installs the Face Panel Test App version  This version of the test app is not able to output DMX via local DMX ports or Gadget/Gadget II. 

Explanation of Issue

No matter the level of the DMX fader in v4.2.0.3 of the test app, only zeros can ever be sent.  RDM devices can still be discovered but levels cannot be altered.
