What am I doing wrong?

Thanks to Zane I got the firmware file that I needed.  Now, it seems like I can't program the controller once the software is on it.  Here is what I'm doing:

1.  With the controller hooked up to my Active Hub, Open PICkit 2 programming software, erase via PICkit 2.
2.  Import the SSC 1/2/3 firmware and write.  (LEDs on the strip do light up during this process.)
3.  Remove PICkit 2.  Unplug/replug the cable from the Active Hub.
4.  Open Falcon Smart String programmer v 1.0.12
5.  Select channels, node count, forward/backward, hybrid, etc.  I assume the default start channel is 1.  I want the new start channel to be 786.
6.  Press Program.
7.  The word "Program" flashes on and off for about a second.  Then disappears.

When I goto test in xLights, the whole strip turns white before I "Output to Lights" or select the channels to test.  The rest of the yard does cycle R-G-B-All.

Please let me know what I'm doing wrong.


When programming did you check "Program All SSC on Hub", making sure you only have the single SSC plug into the hub.

I meant to update this to being answered.

Yes, I ended up unplugging all the other smart controllers and checked the program all option.  It works now! 

Thank you!
