How do I run my CCR's in DMX mode? Do I use an ordinary crossover cable which comes out of my F16v2 serial ports and into the CCR? How do I setup the channel config in xLights?

Off the top of my head I think the CCRs are just LPD6803 pixel strips which is a protocol supported by the F16v2.

Not sure how to use them as they are but that might be possible.

You can cut the strip off and plug the strip into the Falcon, but if you run them in DMX you don' use up any outputs and keep the warranty if it still applies.
I think they automatically detect DMX or LOR protocol so it should work straight away with your LOR to ESTA crossover cable.
