    hey guys

    just got something to ask about the falcon player, and the direct output to ws2811.

    i have setup vixen, done the test sequence i wanted to try, but i cant get the output to do its thing.

    so i just set it as say Red, but when i output from the pi to the light, its flicks all sorts of weird colours in no set pattern. all 3 pixels i have being driven are weird.

    ive got the pi running off a plugpack, but the pixels powered off a 12v power supply that is seperate to the pi.

    its not on the network of my laptop i do the vixen stuff on.

    i cant figure out whats going on.... any ideas?

    cheers
