Differential reciver board pixel count.
« on: January 10, 2017, 05:23:41 PM »
I have a F16V2-R and looking to expand off of it  board and 4 receivers. With the differential expansion I am a little bit lost with everything. Will I need to run the F16 in 32 string mode? If so do the ports go as followed? receiver board #1   17,18,19,20 then receiver board #2  18,19,20,21 and so on? Can I split up the pixel count? For example 120 pixels on port 1 and ports 17 have the remaining 560 pixels?  :-\

Yes to all your questions except in 32 string mode the max output is 340 per port with the current firmware. That may change in the future.

Each individual port can support 340 pixels maximum.  The controller can support over 10,000 pixels as a whole. Differential board #2 has ports 21,22,23,24.  #3 has 25,26,27,28. #4 has 29,30,31,32.

Did they get all you questions?

The main board is strings 1-16


The expansion boards are 17-32


When you click to add the expansion, you do NOT loose your settings on the first 16 ports either, which was very nice to not rekey them..

I loaded up 1 with the plain string expansion and another with the differential expansion.  Ended up only using 2 of the differential boards of 4 because you could load it up so much.  Be nice when the F3 comes along and you can load up more per port, but David was mentioning making it so you can split the number of pixels between the differential and main boards on an individual basis more.

E.g. 640 total, but I only have 100 on port 16, so I can have 540 on port 32 if he gets that feature built in.
