Cannot Configure SSV4
« on: November 18, 2016, »
I have several SSV4s that I am getting around to programming, I can burn the firmware and verify it, But I cannot get the Smart String Programming Utility to work (no flashing lights). I'm using a USB Dongle that is flashed for Pixelnet and I have a v1mond3 controller that with with the ubs dongle and hub so I know it has to be with the controller or utility. I have loaded the Falcon firmware as with the jumper on I see the changing RGB colors. When I put the Lynx firmware on I cannot get it to program.

Help.....

Thanks
Scott

I could not get the Lynx firmware to work on mine either and not sure why.

I'm new to pixelnet, but if the falcon firmware is doing the job any reason not to use it? or are you saying it only worked in test mode and would not assign a start channel either?

Dan, When I program the controller with the falcon firmware and try to program it when I hit program how to I know it is programming it. Does the Falcon Firmware using the same control signal the at Lynx SSC uses. I have a utility that send pixelnet out but it does not seem to work with the falcon firmware?

Thanks
Scott

Great! The first time I did it I forgot to check the checkbox at the bottom that says Progam all. :)
