    Default 8x32 Flexible Panels on Pi Cap?

    I have 4 of these flexible panels. I have set things up in FPP and things seem to be ok. I'm not sure how I would set these up in xLights though. I'm using port 1 on the cap for 2 panels and port 2 for the other 2.
    If I run a butterfly effect,etc things seem to look ok,but scrolling text is ALL wrong. Any ideas?

    I have 2 of the 8x32's setup as a 8x64 matrix. I am out of town so can't look at my xlights setup. I will confirm when I get home, but mine scrolls text with no issues. What size is your matrix?

    Thanks,
    Shawn

    I have 4 of them setup as a 8x64.
    I did fix it though. I had to figure out what numbers to use in the strings,nodes/string,etc.
    I would like to see your setup though when you get a chance.

    In case anybody else wants to do this.here's the settings I used for the 4 8x32 flexible panels with two on top and two on bottom.

    Pi cap port 1: Matrix
    Direction: Vertical
    # Strings: 1
    Nodes/String: 512
    Strands/Strings: 64
    Start Location: Bottom Right

    Pi cap port 2: Matrix
    Direction: Vertical
    # Strings: 1
    Nodes/String: 512
    Strands/Strings: 64
    Start Location: Bottom Right

    Make sure to go to the Controller Connection settings and set the correct port to panels. Also adjust the brightness,I set mine to 10 and it looks fine.
