    Default Explain expansion

    Hallo,
    Hallo, I bought a F16v3
    It is write 1024 pixel each port (340 RGB led) but in WEB UI I can sign only 512(170 RGB led).
    What not I understand?
    if I buy more expansion I have 48 port, but the total amount of pixel is the same.
    for example if now I have 16 led strep of 170 RGB led (or 340 if you explain the 1024) , all the board is full. I buy a new extension, but I can't add nothing if I not reduce the number of led in each first 16 port.
    Is it correct?
    Please help me to understand.

    Thanks

    Do not confuse universes with the number of pixels per port. A universe is simply a bundle of data that tells a group of LEDs what to do.

    Do you have the board set for 2 or more units (Controller plus one or two expansions)? This is possible, even if you only have just the F16V3. If you set it for just the controller then each of the outputs of the controller can output all 1024.

    I think I have some confusion in my head. :-)
    this Christmas I made a tree with 18x50 led strip. I USED 9 PORTS!!! Now I understand that I can use ONE port with 6 universes. So I have 8 more free ports.
    is it the same for a singing face!
    thanks
