    Do you have plexiglass in front of the panels to waterproof them?

    Why not? FPP on the Pi supports 3 chains of 12 panels each for a total of 36 panels.

    The pi2 won't. Locks freezes up. Pi3 works perfect

    Odd. Was it the same SD card, USB flash drive, and power supply on Pi 2 vs Pi 3?

    Ok, thanks. My test setup is using a Pi v2 and I don't think anyone else has reported any issues on the v2. Something to remember if someone else does run into it.

    I've helped a few others set them up but they were running 10 panels or less. Seemed to work fine. Btw. I've had to and had others set all the outputs equal. Is this required?
