    Hi all,

    Have been putting together some new icicles using the Boscoyo mounts and Ray Wu 7,7,7 pixels.
    First six no problem, but the last is giving me grief. The first 20 or so pixels show white, while the rest seem to do what they should. Have tried several controllers and get the same result in both run and test modes. Anyone seen this behavior before?

    No, but have swapped the strings around to see if its the lights faulty or the controller setup maybe?

    Yes. All six strings prior to thisun work on multiple controllers so happy it's not that. This string shows same fault on same controllers so pretty sure it's node IC related at position 1. Just thought someone may have seen this before I swap out the first 35 pixels...

    As suspected it was one of the ICs in the first 35 pixels. Replaced that part of the string and good to go. First dodgy one from Ray I have had so far...
