Hint: To add a Unicast address to the J1SYS E131 Plugin, right click over the destination box and a popup box will appear for the unicast IP address
Hint: Remember that the E682 Pixel controller only can use 510 channels per universe to control lights, not the full 512 channels in a universe. Channels 511 and 512 are used for special functions, not channel control.
