    guys, I have a problem with the LEDs ... if I combine two strings of 50 pixels one and go into the test with F4V3 the first turns on properly, while the second no!
    I open a new package of 10 new LED strings and I tried to repeat the same operation, with the difference that joining two strings and starting the test these work properly, but if I join a third, here is that the latter does not turn on .. ... I thought about a problem of power injection, but also applying after the second string an iniezinoe of current, the latter does not want to know to turn on. According to you can 'be a problem of incompatibility' between the led strings ?? I do not know what to check or do .....

    Unfortunately I realized this problem only close to hallowen, when I found myself assembling my first display and see it not working properly .....
    I hope to be able to understand with your support how to solve the problem so I can prepare for next Christmas .......

    Thank you all for the support and possible solution!

    The Falcon controllers come with a default setting of 50 pixels per output I believe. This needs to be changed via the web interface to ,match what you are connecting. In your case 100 or whatever.

    Thank you for answering me so quickly AAH!
    Honestly I did not think to check the configuration of the F4V3 ..... As soon as I get home from work will be the first thing I will check, with the hope that this will be the problem of the malfunction .......... ...
