    need some help on a blinking RGB string. I think its Speed Kbps

    problem solved: I added a second null pixel and it fired right up. It seems like there needs to be a null pixel every 5 feet or so to make sure everything works right.

    need some help on a blinking RGB string. I think its Speed Kbps

    Great idea, I did not want to pull that strip down but I just did and I hooked it straight into the board using the same slot / univ. and it worked like a charm at 2400 and 3000 kpbs just two that I tried. I also tested the voltage at the connection to the strip on the house and it was a...

    J1SYS P12R Controlling WS2811 LED Need Config Help

    Thank you all~! I just got up. I will try all your speed suggestions now and let you know what works. This has been really the only frustrating part of this. Mainly because there is no rime or reason it seems. I am just arbitrarily trying different speeds. I wish there was a calculation /...
