    Thats the part that puzzles me. As I hate to be told the system will know . . . really will it really know? You are going to play with them in a month or so, lucky I have 8 more to go before I need to worry about it. Im already getting the sequencing worked out so waiting for the hardware is no big deal.

    My goal is 3 2810 strips or pixels, makes no difference to me which way I go as they will all be straight runs. I appreciate any input you add to this or Ill just bug you in a month if you have come up with the answers.

    I'm of the same opinion about "it just knows"and thats the trouble. sometimes you just have dive into it and check these things. I'm working on a plan plan B before I order any.

    These are supposed to strip off the channels that are used so the next controller will have a start address of 1 but actually be 129 if they are 128 channel controllers. This is what i have heard but I do know if this is 100% correct as there were members who were using these that had some difficulties with getting the second one to respond. If you were planning on committing to buy these then i would test 2 first to see if this is a correct assumption that they will strip off the previously used channels.
