    Newbie looking for suggestions on new display

    It's not as scary as you think, I was the same when I first started and was very paranoid about electricity out in the open, it was all 240V running through the yard with extension cords etc trying to weatherproof connections was a bit nerve wrecking, now everything apart from the PSU's being...

    Firmware 2.55 changed my colour order on F16V3

    it's been a while since I have played with this DMX controller, so I just realised that the modules were connected to output 9 (ch25-27), so I put it on output 1 (ch1-3) and Red is not showing at all, however when I run the DMX on board test mode, by having dip switch 10 on and nothing else, Red...

    Falcon F16v3 & F48 E1.31 pixel controller 2020 interest thread

    depends on your layout, my layout is reasonably small, and an f16v3 will be plenty for my needs, however I will be using at least 3 receivers to get ports closer to props and to increase outputs rather than have 1 string of 800, I can split it up into 4 strings of 200 for example
