F16V2R no show for this year?!??
« on: December 02, 2018, 11:25:23 AM »
I am having some issues and have no clue why! I have the F16V2R with 4 port distribution board. Port  A works just fine no issues. The other three I have no clue why data is not going out. Moved chips around to see if would follow the problem but it does not. All cat5 cables tested good. Any help to start my show up this year will be great!

New set up with the expansion board. Everything was up and working till this rain this last time. I have  dielectric grease and all my connections, theyre all tight, all my cat five wires have been tested and I tried replacing others. So I am a bit at a loss, so many people are driving by and I am dark! its aggravating!

Yes that is correct just stopped. I tested everything and it seams like the issue is coming form the differential board. I just replaced it with a spare on and still have the same issue. also I can go to the web page.

Did you test your lights on the web page  to see if the turn on did you check fuses

After receiving some help, it was not a F16V2R issue. It was an update that was done with in xlights. I was using absolute addressing and the newest update did not like it. So we changed everything over to universe start channel. BOOB  everything works! Thanks for everyones input! Have a great Christmas!
