Evening all,

I am very new to the world of RGB Christmas lights. I but together my controller to day and the plugged in a string of lights to test it. The controller all lit up Ect, however the string of lights did not. Am I missing something? Should the lights light up? If I test them on a USB into a pc they light up. Please help

My advice is to explain exactly what you have. The info given so far is not enough for anyone to guess. :)

Hi David,
I am making a 800 5v node pixel 180 degree Christmas tree. I am running a HE123 with a beaglebone Black.

Brett is currently working on installing FPP onto a BBB and then the setup of a HE123. I've been hard to get in touch with for most of the day. The joys of invalid parents who live in the sticks with borderline mobile reception.
