    All December was hampered by the intermittent lagging and freezing whilst running in scheduler. I have tried changing computer and running off an i5 with a SSD but with no noticeable difference.

    What I was running = 33,030 channels this included about 7,000 x 2801 pixel nodes and 2,500 x 2811 strip.


    I have tried both older and the latest versions of scheduler and had the same result

    I do not use transitions and use Nutcracker for the tree only - 2,400 nodes,

    The size of the LSP files range from 16.1mb to 28.3mb

    Would be interest in any suggestions or experiences that other have had with this issue or how to work past it next year as the display is supposed to grow but it cant till this issue is sorted

    Most people seem to be moving away from scheduler to a PI to get away from such issues as far as I can tell.

    That is an option but how big is too big for PI as it does not have the power of a PC

    The keep expanding the number it can do. I believe the current limit is 128,000 channels.

    Probably best to read up on the Falcon forums.

    And when you exceed 128k you can buy another pi and run that in slave mode for another 128k
