    Well,
    I have a E6804 that I’m going to put to good use on a small project I just built. The Matrix is made up of 6 digital strips with 32 LED’s per/meter. I have cut the strip into 3 pieces giving me 16 strips of 53 pixels.
    I’m looking for the best setup for the E6804

    Thanks

    Find Me On:
    Use Unicast (12 universe capability as opposed to 7 with multiverse) and set 212 pixels out of each of the 4 pixel connectors on the e6804. Set zig-zag every 53 pixel (assuming this is how you intend to set it up physically).
    Pixel connector # 1 will start at universe 1. # 2 will start at universe 3. # 3 will start at universe 5. # 4 will start at universe 7.
    These would be the settings I would go with after playing around with the settings on my e6804 for the past few days.

    Ok thanks for the PM, yes 3*6=18 somehow I missed type the above total and put 16 when it should read 18 strips.

    Ok so just make pixel connector # 1 x 318 pixels. That will give you 6 x strips on # 1 and 4 strips on each of the others.
