Any update? Would be good to get an ETA as I need it for this season or have to come up with another plan.

Cannot guarantee they will be done by end of this month. So you may want to go to plan 'B'. It takes three weeks to get them built and I have not ordered them yet and may not for a week or two. I have one PCB I can send you. You will have to source and populate the parts and a few are small SMD 0603 parts.

I'm no stranger to Digikey and 0603 soldering, so yes that would be cool. I assume you can send a BOM with it?

I assume these will be available for next year.

Good.  Think this will allow me to add pixels to the house and not have to worry about power injection.

I was wonder the same thing.  Trying to plan out 2017 Christmas before presales are over.

The board has been tested and will be part of the presale.

Will this still happen? I do not see it in the store.

David could you outline what the no. of pixels per port (main board and receivers) will be with both ports on the differential expansion used?
Can they be adjusted to have more on some and less on others?

Regards,
Rowan

The F4V2 at this time allows 340 on main board and 340 on expansion board. I may change this is the future but that is how it stands now.

David, from the pic of the f4v2 differential board, is there a 3rd serial/rj45 port on the board to support the link from the main board?  How will it connect?

I only see 2 on the pic.
