    Default Channel count

    I added 24 channels of renard. I adjusted the renard channel counts accordingly. Do I need to adjust my Ethernet channel counts up by 24 as well?

    Renard does not use Ethernet. What ethernet count would you be adjusting?


    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show.

    that's a good question - I assume it depends on how you have configured things in your sequencer. Since FPP, maybe you are creating FSEQ in xlights? I have 216 Renard Channels, a handful of DMX channels, and then pixel tree channels. The Renards run through 216, the DMX channels run through about 232, the pixels don't start until 514. If my pixels started at say 233, i would think i'd need to shift them forward by 24 if I added additional channels to the Renards, otherwise I think XLights wouldn't let me overlap. I don't know that FPP actually cares about the channel overlap - since ethernet comms will presumably go directly to the pixel controller, then serial comms or dmx to your renards, but you may have trouble in the sequence.

    Yes, If the Renard was 1st in the list, then anything that follows them should be increased by 24 also

    I had to adjust by the amount of Renard I added. Thanks for the replies!
