Connecting 48 strings to a F16V2
« on: December 03, 2015, 05:18:37 PM »
OK, so I have an F16V2 with an expansion board.  Can I connect 48 strings somehow without connecting them end to end?  All 48 strings originate at the bottom of the tree.  Can I somehow connect 2 strings to each port?

The two strings connected to one port would behave the same. Same effects. Sounds like you need to use another controller.

Can you use some null pixels or uAmps to get the data signal back to the bottom to let you drive two strings off one output if you can't flip any strings upside down.
