OK - Not working.

I am able to get test mode on the first 9 pics that I have connected, but when I go to program it's not working.

I am using port 2, 3rd pair off the FPD.
Using ID 0 for the hex file.
Firmware file: FalconZeus v0.0.0_id_0.hex.

I may have a work around....I used Universe 1 on the FPD instead of Universe 7....i'm now going to move the wire back over and see if that did the trick... looks promising though

OK... so something is just messed up with that one pair on that one port for some reason. Once I connected up port 3 and used the first pair it worked. I'm happy my 7 mini trees are working with the Zeus 16. YEAH!!!!

Hello all, I had some issues with two Zeus 8 running a large (1680) node Vertical matrix.  The original firmware I was using was causing some flashing. I re-flashed both with Zeus/Falcon firmware and was able to use the programmer created by David.  All is working fine. I had universe jumpers set to the correct universe. I used .hex 0 for universe one for firmware and .hex 1 for universe 2.  I was able to program universe ones first PIC and then set the channel to 1217 and used the Clone box to program the other 7 section or PICS to complete the channel programming for Universe 1. I then created my model for Universe 2 and set the start channel to 4097 and cloned the next 7 in universe two. I used a Zeus 8 in each universe.  I must say this is great firmware David and thank you. Here is a FB link to a video of the results shot during the day. The video does not do justice.  This Matrix is so clean in the video it is a pix-elated. Not sure why. You may notice there is no stutter or delayed light movement. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=422892487864760
I have a video of it at night I can post this evening when I return home if you want to see how bright and clean the firmware makes the sign run. Kevin

Nice matrix!!! Mine is running off two F16s ....the Zeus was going to be used for that, but I ended up having much better power supplies to use (spare HP DL380 power supplies) so went with the Falcon. I am very happy though with that firmware David put ..now that I have resolved my other configuration issue on the software front I had with a mix of square nodes and pixels on the same string everything is working nicely for me!!!
