    I see many posts about distance from the controller to the first pixel, but was wondering if there is a maximum distance from the computer to the P2? I can mount the ECG-P2 and the power supply near the pixel elements but the distance from my computer to the controller is a bit.

    Thanks

    Aust standards and Krone DC state that the maximum Ethernet run can be 100m before packet loss may occur.
    So you can put 100m from the PC to a switch and then run another 100m (Max) to the controller if needed.
    Which would give you 200m from your PC to the P2
