    Hi all,
    I used to have a hobby with pic micro controllers but with family and the usual It fell by the wayside. I've wanted to get a pixel display up and running for a while now, So am hoping to get a mega teee and maybe arches running before Christmas.
    So I've been buying an assortment of 5 and 12 volt ws2812 strings. Yea I now know they are slow. But I'm happy. Running XLights and one pixlite mk2 controller. I have a few DMx 24 ch controllers but still haven't figured these out yet.
    My learning curve with xlights is still vertical and expect to spend a long time mastering it. The pixlite 16 was easy to configure but I'm still unsure of the some of the terminology and conventions being used.
    Cheers Wellsy
    Aka Richard :)

    Hi All,
    Thanks for the welcome, I've been a bit busy with work and only just getting time to myself to tinker. I end up completing 4 arch's, 8 candy canes and 2 small trees, with a very simple sequence in time for Christmas Day.. just...
    I'm keen for the Brisbane Mini in June.
    Cheers
