    Firstly - awesome forum everyone. Never feel unwelcome. :) :) :) :)

    I am about to take the leap into computer controlled lights and would like to know if I have my head around things.

    I have Big W strings - RGB strips - 5050 pixel strips.

    After reading all the information on the site I think I would need the following;

    To run sequencing on the Big W strings;
    computer ---> AVD48 ---> Big W strings / RGB strips.

    To run sequencing on the 5050 pixel strips
    computer ---> J1SYS ---> 5050 pixel strips.

    My main aim is to have the lights work together than just random flashing.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    To get the DMX data into the DC48, you'll need either a USB-DMX dongle or an Ethernet-DMX unit.

    I think the J1SYS P12S (Ethernet-Pixel board) has a DMX output on it, but not working yet (update to make it work soon?).
