    Hi Guys,
    I am considering buying a F16v3 with a 16 port expansion board.
    The question I have is to do with refresh rates. I understand that each channel can run at 40Hz if the pixel count is 680 or lower. I also understand that each port on each board shares the maximum pixel count amongst the respective numbered ports (ie all port 1 must be a sum of 1024 or lower) on any particular channel.
    Does that also mean the refresh rate would be 40Hz only when the sum of all ports on a particular channel is 680 or lower?
    Also with pixel types - with the main board only I understand we can have 16 ports each configured for a different type of pixel. When configured with expansion boards, do we get an option to configure every port (eg 32 or 48) for a different pixel type, or still have only 16?
    I hope this question makes sense!
    Thanks in advance,
