    Enough already, when do we get to see some pics/videos of it POWERED ON?!

    If I missed such a post, please forgive (and redirect me to them).

    Thanks,

    Ok, if I go to the higher test patterns I do get all the universes firing. So maybe there is a limit in the lower test patterns.

    Right now I have test pattern 15 running and it is cool. Need to fix a few pixels or connections and will post pics soon!

    Ok, so it has a few issues, I actually expected it too since I could feel a loose solder joint here and there. I'll start on that now. Here is a teaser pic!

    so if they turn out to be bad pixels do you just eat the costs?

    There is two issues with buying non-waterproof pixels. One they are not waterproof. Secondly, they are far more fragile than the epoxy coated ones since the epoxy locks everything in place. None of the pixels are bad, just solder joints that need attention. The cool thing about pixels is just go to the last one working and look around!

    All of the pixels are running now on this panel. Now to get V3 to talk to it and we can have some fun!

    It's shifting the universes up by two until it hits the next cluster then it starts over. It looks like the configs are correct in both the controller and V3. Basically every 6 columns is a univers starting from the left. First cluster uses all 4 outputs, the second only uses two then it repeats.

    I got other issues like a IC that seems to be spitting out data in the 5th universe and then there is the random blue pixels.
