    I, too am looking for some direction on my ppr-a wiring. Would like to drive my 12 v light strips.

    I would stay clear. I broke my "never buy anything from J1sys except P2/P12's" and bought a heap for my display this year

    Ed shipped me the wrong models (fair enough, he got confused), just meant a bunch of extra cabling work.

    I'm about to throw them in the bin, can't get them working reliably enough.

    I use a lot of his Pixel Extenders and with great reliability. You just have to know how to use them. I don't use the transmitter side because I have differential signals already, but I do use the receiving side.. they work very well.

    As for how to wire them.. you need to know what you have to start with voltage wise and what you want to end up with.. I don't drive pixels from his DC converter.. but I do use it to drive the board when I have 24v to drive it with.
