Very good, thanks - great you made progress with the PixelIon controller now, too!

Just to be sure it's this one, right?

Mine still did not arrive, but as soon as it's here and you have the first SPAD.NeXt version I can test it with, I will give it a try!

Best regards
Andreas

Yes that's the controller I craft support for currently.

Right now the implementation only supports the LED-Pixels (http://www.nledshop.com/index.php?main_ ... kijn1aobr2)
The other LED chipsets will be supported on request.

I'll add support for them.
Since there is no way to detect the connected chipset,I'll have to think about a smart way how to setup that stuff.

Maybe just a drop-down with all their supported products the user then can choose the right one from?

Just checked with nledshop as it took really long now and it seems that - for whatever reasons - my order there was never completed!

As I can decide now, would you recommend better going with the PACLED64 controller instead?

Best regards
Andreas

... I just decided to go with the PACLED64 controller now as this can be used with any sort of LEDs which makes it much more flexible for future extensions. ;-)

Good decision. I have the NLED Support completed but the PACLED64 is much more stable and better to control.
Overall the NLED is more a device for Christmas-Tree-Lighting or stuff.

I recommend the PACLED64. (I'm currently waiting for my dev sample and will then make a video for using it with Korry swicthes / single led and RGD LED). Also mention when ordering that you come from SPAD.neXt :-D maybe you get a discount if you order led's as well.
