    So i started this more than 12 months ago (had a little pause during the year) but back into it last month.

    Have sat down on xLights and trying to work out channels, universes and PixLite16 outputs. Could someone please have a look at the attached table to see if I have this correct.

    I have kept each PixLite16 output at max 900 channels and the xLights has 500 channels per universe Max.

    Looks ok.

    I think you might find that you can have 1020 channels per output on the pixlite. My tree is 20 x 33 strip and i am running that from 2 outputs. (990 each output.)

    I wouldn't use 500....pick a size divisible by 3. That's why most use 510. Not sure how well the Pixlite handles pixel data being split between 2 data packets.
