When the F16v2 input stops (end of show), a Blank command (DMX value of 0 ) is issued to turn off the pixels on the specified outputs.

Basically, turns your yard OFF

I believe that will cause all lights to be blanked (turned off) after a short period of no data activity.  keeps lights from accidentally being left on after a show is over.  I remember back in Vixen 2 days we always had to make sure that the last block of the grid was off in order to not leave any lights on.  Some controllers always leave lights in their last state until a new state is received via data.  And there are some folks who do not want the lights to go dark between sequences so now you have a choice.
