I have a pixad8 that has mixed voltages outputs 1-4 5V and 5-8 12V.
However I am only using outputs 1-3 (4 will not be used) and outputs 5-7 (8 not used)
When I am setting up the configs on the pixad8 I have left outputs 4 & 8 unticked as they will be inactive.
However do I still need to enter a universe number even though it will be inactive?
If I put “0” it defaults to “1”
If I call it the next sequential universe number in LSP will I just leave that universe number as not active when setting oututs

I have mine set up with sequential universe numbers, so if that output is not being used then its unchecked but i stll leave it ready to use if needed as a backup.

I only have a couple of unused outputs in my pixel controllers and in my case they are set to inactive and all set to universe 99. The reason is here I chose universes 1-99 as DMX, but use just universe 1 and 2, My pixels all start at universe 100.

100-107 are the E16 Megatree, 120-123 the PIXAD8 Rose garden, 140-147 the P12R with various items on it, 160-165 the Pixicle P12R, and 180-192 the 2 P2's in the Megascreen.
