    On the GLD80 how do you directly connect an input to an output if possible. Cheers.

    Go to the I/O patch window ( 4th button right to the main display) and click on the the XLR socket you want the signal to come out.
    Then, below you can choose what is fed to that XLR. Click it and scroll down the list until you see “Input Sockets”. Then, right to that, choose the input number. Don`t forget to press “APPLY” after that.

    Can I then send light dmx signal down that route or say a separate feed from an intercom system

    No, DMX is a hf signal, waaay above the audio frequency range. It would not pass because the system’s frequency range has to be limited in order to be processed by the mixer.
    This is not like a hardwired connection.
    Most Intercom signals also contain a DC signal on top of the audio, used for call signals.
    That would be blocked, too.
    If you take a look inside a cat5 multicable, you’ll always find one or two real DMX cables besides the cat5 and the AC cable just for these kinds of signals.
    A real copper cable connection can’t be beat for these purposes…

    but it is possible to send DMX and intercom through network connections

    that is not cheap and has some limitations
