[SOLVED] What am I doing wrong

Hey all,
I got a Falcon16 and am trying to get lights working.
I flash the PIC and have no problems.
Then i verify and all is good.
i put the board in test and the lights flash.

Then I open the Falcon Controller software.
I choose board address 1 (first dip switch is on the on position)
I choose universe 1
i uncheck hybrid mode.

then in the software and choose etherdongle, the ip address and multicast.
then i choose output 9 (no reason)
set the start channel to 513, and pixel count to 11 (a test string)
then i click program.
should the lights flash like a SSC?
the software says programming and the lights on the etherdongle flash.
I close the program.

Then i open xlights and go to test.
xlights works with the SSC through a hub so the setup of it should be good.
anyway, i chools output to lights, select all channels and shimmer (or anything).
i dont get any lights.
any ideas?


I got it.
i had the board upside down and therefore the dip switches were upside down.
i knew it had to be something easy.

All is working now.
