How do I correct fixtures that have the dimmer inverted,

i.e.  OFF at the top of the fader?

Quite a few are like this including the iMove 5 wash and the iRocks.

Thanks

normally a dimmer is defined as:

dimmer msb 0 0,255

to invert it just write:

dimmer msb 0 255,0

if you have an 8bit dimmer you write:

dimmer msb 0 0,255

if you have a 16bit dimmer you can write:

dimmer msb 0 0,255
dimmer lsb 1, 0,255

MSB = Most significant byte
LSB = Least significant byte
