    Thanks! ;)

    All links are in the video's descriptions but I will post them here as well. I highly suggest you watch all of them. The only reason I even videoed going into the controllers string settings is to show the WS2811 in the drop down menu and all 8 universes. All the previous videos Ive seen were all on an older firmware and didnt show any of that.

    Videos by ED at j1sys on the UBL setup. (click the link and it will load) and Video by Phil on the UBL setup.

    Andy,

    I would not even try to tell you I am a rookie at all this. The videos that you have created are the heat and will help me get some sleep. I have been dreaming pixels after seeing so many videos of displays but was unsure were to start or even what questions to ask. Thanks again for your hard work on the videos.....

    Jeff Messer

    PS. Special thanks to Eddy on the guide. It has helped me out greatly..

    Hi Andy,

    Do you still have the pcitures referred to above and if so , would you be able to attach them again ?
    I am assuming that I cant see them as they are no longer present on the server ?

    Regards
