    Default DIGWDF Four Stick and Xlights

    I am trying to see if anyone out there can explain how to use a Four Stick in Xlights? I have the PIC flashed with the DMX code and ESP-01 flashed with the ESPixelStick 3.0 Serial code. My question is in Xlights... How is the controller set up? Like any other E1.31 controller with an IP addr? How do i set it up and with the channels ?

    Just add a E1.31 controller w/ the Universe #, if Unicast also will need the IP address, and it will only have 4 channels.

    I am not familiar enough with xLights to help with this. I would imagine that because you're sending the data in an E1.31 wireless format, the ESP would decode the data into the desired end-format used in the pic. I would think you'd want to set the channel number to the controller, though. Just a hunch...

    Even though the DIGWDF Store has been closed for two years, it's still awesome!
    User guides, documentation and other files are still free and available for downloading.

    Just set it to start channel. The ESP module is what picks up the signal then translates it. I run renard and dmx from xlights, tget are all just assigned E 1.31 as that it was the esp modules read.
