    THAT is a lovely sign !
    What is the motivation for moving to P5? Will the P5's appear more 'high def' ?

    Sorry I just don't get the use of P5 or P6. For that size matrix why not just use a cheap 32 inch or larger LED monitor.

    Did 1x2 as my first lightening season this year. About 50' to the street and everyone said they could read it. Thinking of going 2x2 and no scrolling next year.

    I used a single P5 panel (64*32 leds) and put it close to the front of the yard. Matrix, power supply, Pi Zero W, and Pi Martix Adapter in the enclosure behind the panel. Seemed to work well enough this year. Did some effects on the panel just because I could

    Any special insights on using the pi zero vs. a regular pi?
    Using a zero could save a lot of money.
    Did you try using a zero with more than one P5 panel?
