    Default Test issues

    Hello All,

    I have F48 with 4 Smart receivers.

    Here is the issues: When I test the pixels directly from the smart receivers every pixels lights up.
    When I run the F48 in test mode that is where I have issues...some pixels are not lighting up. I though maybe it could be the cat 5 cables but I switch them out even purchased new cables with the same result.
    also check my pixel count in Xlights. I cannot find the issue....

    Any suggestion?

    Thank you in advance,

    If test mode on the F48 cannot turn on the lights, then the output string configuration does not provide data for those pixels. Are you sure they are configured properly in xLights? Did you do a manual configuration of the F48 or are you expecting xLights to take care of the port configuration for you?

    Please post your F48 port configuration. And a clearer description of which lights are and are not working. ".some pixels" does not tells us anything. Is it the last N pixels. Is it five in the middle?

    Are the porch door and Window 1 supposed to be getting the same data? They are both getting Universe 55 channel 399 and up. In both groups, those channels seem to be getting used twice.

    actually looks like you fixed the layout. All channel numbers seem to make sense now. see how the ending numbers become the starting numbers.
