Hi Guys,

I have a 1152 node matrix, and Pixlite 16Mk2 controller.

As the limit of nodes is 1020 per port, how do I set the matrix in xlights to span more than one port?

Thanks
Stephen

Split your Matrix across a couple of ports
You can do this in xLights

I have this smaller matrix divided up over 3 outputs (not the most efficient use of controller outputs).
and then use the xLights upload to controller option to push the configuration to your controller.

How do I do that? As at the moment xlilghts is spreading it over 7 ports of 96 pixels each, and not letting me move the layout.

I have managed to get this fixed.

Strings: 2
Nodes/String: 576
Strands/String: 12

The visualizer was showing the matrix taking up 7 ports. Now it's on port 5 and 6. The real test will be when I hook the lights up. :unsure:
