    That number of channels give 60HZ, which wouldn't be a rapid flicker. But you may try it.

    The testing of the Arduino & SSR can be done by using a "power-on" test that cycles through each channel for say 1/2 a second before it gets to start the Vixen reading stuff. The sketch (i.e. http://doityourselfchristmas.com/for...om-mode/page23 ) in post #1 uses a "test sequence" for this purpose.
    If it still flickers then it is puzzling. I haven't experienced this phenomenon.

    Are you sending a Vixen sequence of 52 channels?
