Can xLights create sequence with multiple IPs?

    I have setup some arches and a megatree in xLights, and all appears to run ok from my PC.
    These models consist of WS2811 (12v) strips and pixel strings that are controlled by a Pixlite16 (with static IP).

    I also have some WS2801 (5v) strips that I want to include in my display, in a synchronised, programmed sequence, controlled from a Raspberry Pi 3.

    I understand that the Pixlite can't be configured to control both WS2801 and Ws2811 strips at the same time, but was wondering whether it is feasible to setup an xLights sequence that includes more than one IP address.

    I have added further E1.31 data locations (see pic), but don't see anywhere to include the new IP in the layout tab.

    If xLights is unable to do this, how can I synchronise multiple controllers as above?

    they all seem to have a ip address from what your screen grab shows.

    Normally you would not reuse universe numbers on different controllers. You would make them all unique. You can do it your way but then you have to specify the ip in the start channel on the model so it knows what controller you are using.
