How can I tell the difference between a gen 2 and a gen 3 board?

BTW- there are some boa ds mark d g2 that are actually g3.

HU or having he LED instead of the red domed type bulb is the key. I’m not sure how many are floating around but I have 4

This has been an enlightening thread for me...

I'm a network guy. Very tech savvy. I deal with routers, switches, all kinds of low voltage stuff. I have built a couple RasPie projects - I never thought this hobby would stump me. Heck, I did a lot of lighting for Stage / show with DMX.

Been on LOR for 3 or 4 years. Pixels have kicked my a$$.

I came upon this because I had same symptom of Pixels not working. I THINK I have good info now to fix mine.... Does this look right :

1. For Pixel Editor to control lights, I MUST have enhanced lor Protocol enabled.

2. My Gen2 PCKit controller ( at least I am assuming its a gen 2 - bought it about 3 years ago ) wont support ELOR, so I need to get it or my Pixie on another network.

3. IF I make a sequence with both pixel editor sequencing and regular Sequencing ( not sure I'm doing this part correctly) I MUST import everything to pixel editor and delineate 'control with pixel sequencer' or 'control with standard sequencer'  or do I only have to do that if im editing / sequencing EVERYTHING in pixel editor....

4. All of my files need to be in the same folder (not sure, but thought I read someone saying that) intensity & lms should be in same folder ?

5. I need to confirm my prop settings because I THOUGHT this would look like a CCR, and I thought CCR's would all have same unit ID.

And after I doo all that, MAYBE, just maybe I'll be able to light these things up .

Interestingly enough, I was able to get something going treating them like CCR's - I bought a sequence from WOWLights, but it appears to have been designed pre-pixie / pre pixel editor, so It just looks like a bunch of CCR's - but they light an I can see most of the sequence.

Only needed if you are sequencing everything in your display in the Pixel Editor.  Putting props in your Pixel Editor (PE) preview that are sequenced with the Sequence Editor (SE) (and marked as Sequence Method=Sequence Editor) is purely *optional* -- but often very helpful (because you can see the see the SE sequence and those channels play back in the PE preview).

 

Not sure what you mean in #5, but everything else looks good.
