Hi Folks, New to this world but looking forward to learning..

Have XLights as my software, building a 16 strand Mega Tree using a EasyLights PIX16 pre built controller (Protocol E131), Mega tree has 50 nodes per strand.. Have connected my controller and tested it all strand light up (only have 9 strands connected right now).. built a Mega tree model in Xlights and when i play the sequence on the model looks great.. NOW when i send it to the controller only 5 of my 9 strands light up.. So i must be doing something wrong.. any help would be greatly appreciated..

Cheers

  • Have you selected the pixilite 16 controller in xLights.
  • Is flights fully controlling it?
  • Have you uploaded contrier configuration from xlights?
I reckon you've missed uploading input and output definitions to the controller from xlights. Other two things are mentioned because xLights needs to know what the controller is before hand.
And xlights having control over the controller helps sort out channeling and warning you the limitations of your controller.
