Configuration of a Colorlight Card for Indoor P5 Panels
Colorlight Config for Outdoor P5 Panels
This is a step by step guide that will show you how to configure a Colorlight card to control a set of Wired Watts Outdoor P5 panels.
Plug your Colorlight card directly into your NIC without anything in between such as a switch.
Download and install LEDvision 8.0, not 5.0 and not 6.8 or 6.9. Use This Link to get the software.
Click Control > Screen Size and Count Settings.
Set the width and height in pixels. The x and y do not matter. Press "Apply."
Click Control > LED Screen Settings (password 168)
On the first tab, select your network card and press "Detect Receiver Cards."
If you get something in the window below, great, if not, you need to troubleshoot this before moving on. Possibly look at step one again.
On the third tab, click on the box in the grey area and set the width and height of your matrix in pixels. Make sure the grey box updates with those numbers.
Press "Save to Devices" at the bottom of the screen.
On the center tab, click Load > Preset Parameters > General Parameters Full Color > 25 full color sixteen scan.
Set your width and height in the two white boxes to your matrix size in pixels. If it is out of range, adjust the multiple down from refresh x16 to refresh x8. That should make your matrix come in range if it was out.
Press "Save to Receivers."
