F16V2R with Differential Expansion Board w/ribbon cable
« on: November 24, 2018, 05:52:47 PM »

 Using the F16V2R with Differential Expansion Board w/ribbon cable and 3 X 4-String Differential Receiver Board. Does this make my board out put 32 channels or only 16 channels? I only ask because I am using 5 ports off my controller and I noticed that my last port on Differential Receiver Board is wacky.
Any help on the port config will be very nice.


 Thank you

I would think 32 channels, as 16 channels on the F16V2R itself and the other 16 channels from the four 4-port receiver boards.

To enable the Differential Expansion board, you had to do the Drop Down on the String Ports page. That put you in 32 channel setup (reducing the # of max pixels per output but doubling the outputs)

Without seeing a screen grab of your String Ports page, it is hard to tell what wackiness you might be seeing.
