    Ok. So I have five floods that are connected Via the Com 2 port on my F16V3. They are connected in parallel to a Ray Wu Easy DMX Controller with the dips set at 1,4,7,10,13.
    First of all....how do I set this up in the controller(F16V3) ?
    Second...how do I set it up in the FPP ?
    Third.....would this be how its set up in Xlights?
    Forth.....how is it that universe 1 port 12 I have made as ch. 1651-2043 in the FPP and F16V3 works when programming from xlights? Does X lights just use the universe numbers and the channel numbers mean nothing?
    Wrapping my head around all this....talk about jumping into the deep end right away. 20171004_195052_1507173644262_resized.jpg 20171004_201355_1507173643545_resized.jpg 20171004_201413_1507173642872_resized.jpg 20171004_201431_1507173642346_resized.jpg 20171004_201443_1507173641527_resized.jpg

    Hi Hoogie. Have you joined the facebook xlights and FPP groups? Posting a question like this there would get you some fast, detailed help, they are great resources for new people to learn from.

    Hi Hoogie and welcome to ACL.
    If the lights you are looking to control are DMX controlled lights, not pixels (using e1.31 protocol) then I believe you will need to configure the "Serial Outputs" menu on the Falcon board. You look to have them connected via the RJ45 CAT5/6 cable to the smaller DMX boards, so whilst they are physically connected correctly, you still need to enable the FPP software and tell it to use this DMX output with the applicable Universe and channel settings.
    Suggest you have a bit of a read of the manual for further info, or have a look at the FPP forums also - good luck!
