    I have 3 pixad8's that I am running 24 strings on 2811 pixels from.


    During testing I have set up 8 universes in lsp and duplicated them in each controller and have found the universe 8 - output 8 seems to lag on the new Pix 8. The other 2 work fine. I have swapped the strings around and found that a string that works on another output misbehaves on this one.
    I seems to lag by about 2 seconds and then you can see the signal slowly working its way through the string.


    Anyone got any suggestions?

    I know the P12R and PixAD8 both use a round robin way of getting the data out, but it should be a few msec delay not seconds. I'd try just that output and if that delay continues then maybe it is a setup or timing issue (You dont have the speed/timing set wrong on that output do you?), or maybe you have a faulty board
