    Is there any update when the P2 will have 4 Universe output per string? I'm planning my layout and need to make sure I'm going to have this capability soon. Last update I saw was the beginning of September. Probably best to track this in it's own thread since I know many people are waiting for this update.

    Thanx!

    to all -

    finally making good progress on the software updates. WS2811 improved support was just about done yesterday. i'm working on it and the 4x universe per string for ECG-P2 today along with the 2x universe per string for the uDCG-P2 and DCG-P2. i'm also working on the TFTP to UBL updater to allow 'old' P12R/PIXAD8 to switch to the new software without the need of a PK3. i fully expect to release most of thise (maybe not the TFTP to UBL updater) this weekend. so all ECG-P2, and 'new' P12R/PIXAD8 people should be able to start testing the newer features VERY soon.

    -Ed

    i'm working as hard as i can. having a few problems with supporting ALL pixel types on all hardware. not a problem that won't be fixable just taking into account all the permutations and possiblities is taking some more rework than i thought. i hope to have something VERY soon. hopefully BEFORE this weekend so some of you can test this weekend. this will be a new release v2.6 for P2, PIXAD8, P12R that will have the 2811 and the multiple universe on the P2.

    Yeah I cant wait. 1800 or so LED's installed and less than 300 to go in the morning, so once I finish, do a little work on power, I should be able and ready to kick it in the guts tomorrow afternoon if the code is released. I'll be trying 2 and 3 controllers (Maybe 4 if it struggles) to see how timing is on a screen like this.

    Update: Screen is done, waiting on code now :)
