    Default New Pixel lights not working WS2811

    I just ordered 5 sets of 50 nodes and I can't get the lights to test. I have a test controller that I test all my lights after I add the connector to the lights. I made a few hundred strings that all work fine. I have tested 2 of the five new sets and swapped out connectors and still the lights will not work. I can swap to any other lights and plug them in and they all work on the controller.

    Anyone have any ideas for me to try?

    What controller are you using? Could be a firmware issue on the controller not liking the new pixels.

    The newer pixels have a different timing something or other(can't remember the techy name) but updating the firmware should do it for you
