    There is slow and fast tm180x so you may need to play with the speed settings. Perhaps post a screenshot of your config as a starting point.

    Also, make sure your wiring is correct - don't rely on the cable colours.

    Not that I'm aware of, but might be worth asking Ray. I only ever used those for 2801 pixels. Keep in mind that there are some issues with those, in that they don't work like normal DMX devices - they work a bit like pixels. They take the first X channels out of the DMX stream, and spit out the rest of the data. Here's a link to a thread on these:
