    Your PI zero can run two ports via a hat. If you add the Ethernet hat to the stack it can drive the two local ports AND 10,000 more pixels via controllers like the Falcon and Sandevice pixel controllers.


    2020 Full sized show reworked for the new location. Only adding (famous last words) 13 RBLs that I finally got converted to using pixels
    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. Dim show (3000 pixels) had regular visits most nights.

    You add the pi zero pixel hat to that stack if you want to drive up to two directly connected strings. Via the Ethernet CAT6 connection you can drive multiple E1.31 based pixel controllers.

    I tried the pixel hat for the 2 local ports and sadly I was unable to get that part to work but everything else worked fine

    A 1:1 session would take care of that pretty quickly.

    Default Beginner friendly matrix ?

    Well DO NOT buy one of these and try to put a pixel hat on top of it without placing something between the Ethernet housing and bottom of hat .

    Or you’ll be sending up smoke signals

    "Beginner friendly" and "matrix" don't work well together in the same sentence.
