Ok, so without digging up an old thread I have a question about upgrading to V3. I was researching and found a link to Corey872's Warp Drive Mod. His link states that his version of modding the SSC's is the same as DLA's version just a different method. Where I am confused is the thread that talks about 5v to the first node. Am I correct in saying that you are still running 12v pixels, but you are increasing the voltage to 5v on the data leg? I'm a newbie at all this and was told this firmware is where it's at but I needed to upgrade to v3 first.
My v1 SSC's are about halfway built, maybe 75% as I started building and saw something about a problem with a resistor or something and stopped. I haven't started on the v2 stuff yet, so now would be the best time to upgrade. I kinda put all my smart light stuff on hold til everything kinda settled and now I want to start trying to get it going again. It's not something I need to have going for this year's show, but the opportunity has presented itself for me to get back to building kits and these are next up. Thanks for all your help and advice.
