    If LOR has the ability to run an external program then you should be able to run the ledtriks as that is how we do it under vixen.

    Oh john did not create the ledtriks alone, but I. Do believe the board design is his ( john is extremely good at taking a design and creating a cheap and small board from it that we all can use )

    Sorry for the confusion!
    What Bob said (rlilly) is what I meant I have 2 Tricks-C's for 2 LedTriks panels (1 for each) and that is the current limit...

    Thank you for the help everyone. I'm glad that everyone on this board is so helpful!

    Can the 2 Trix-Cs talk to each other? So you can get one really long LED message board?

    Hi Stan

    Yes. The current driver software connects the 2 panels together so they behave as one big panel.

    The two board limitation is just in the PC software (LTC) at the moment. Each Triks-C is addressable (up to 4 per port) and it is possible to run multiple ports... so its not a hard limit. Probably there will be more development this year... I hope ultimately it goes back into Vixen so it can be programmed and controlled from the one source.

    Triks C is relatively new (although the Ledtriks panel originally designed by RJ has been around for longer). The hardware is pretty straightforward so I'm hoping we can catch up with the software this year.

    Just so we are all clear on who the honors of creation actually go to... RJ was the creator of the LEDtriks display.

    Robert Jordan(RJ) is the developer of the ledtriks wjohn created the co-op pcb and sells them.
    The answer is One Triks-C controls one LEDtriks panel. If you have two panels, you'll need two Triks-Cs (one for each LEDtriks board).
    Once it is programed it will run stand alone to a point.
    as far as lor your on you own there..

    Like they said....

    RJ designed the first LEDTRICKS, and the cct idea was first published on CC.com

    The COOP board was design by me, in collaboration with RJ (there were at least 6 revsions before the first COOP) Both our names are on the silkscreen, but the headline on the board correctly identifies RJ as the person behind the LEDTRIKS.

    A number of people gave feedback and suggestions on the COOP version.

    TimW came up with the concept of TRIKSC, I helped with the final design and PCB layout, however it is 90+% Timw's work. The comms section was added to the board to allow 232, as the original board proto was 485 exclusively.

    Stan that would be 'circuit idea'

    CC is 'computer christmas' a website that started a lot of people into this hobby.

    have a look here
