On your diagram, you show two separate V+ lines being combined to a single output.  This is on both distro boards. Is there a reason why?
I believe that is showing how he does power injection further down the string.
xLights and Vixen3 for sequencing / FPP for scheduling and playing / Falcon controllers for pixels / homemade controllers for everything else

It doesn't.  (That was someone else's statement.)  It is the dual output from the power distro that is connected together further down the flow that caught my attention.

Funny.  I thought I redid that entry.  Sorry.


Yes, I didn't see the "power injection" notation until it was pointed out.

jewelz013, I think your concept is right, but you do have a connection shown wrong. See FIX and blue marking. You landed a ground on the data wire
I think you said you removed the red X'd jumper.
Green circles are correct.  All green and blue are power injections

Marked sketch attached

Ok, I see, I put the dot on the data line, and the big red one, is the one we were going to disconnect. Thanks. Now I will do it and then post a good drawing. I will cut the line tonite, thanks again

Too many fires here . . . needed an indoor activity to stay out of the smoke.

I think that's perfect (not what I have done yet, but I am supposed to do)
