Mixing strip types

by Drunktank on Wed Feb 13, 2019 5:07 pm

Hey all. Is it possible to mix different types of Neopixel strips? I'm trying to go from a couple sections of 144/m top mounted to 122/m side-mounted, but not getting any response from the side mount strip. I've tried a couple section of the strip, the solder points look good, going to the input pad side of the LED, but no dice so far. Unfortunately, I don't have any more of the same-kind 144/m strips to prove or disprove this theory.

Are you correctly defining the number of pixels?

Do they work independently with the same code?

I'm not actually correctly defining the number of pixels, but the number is enough to cover all the strips, which has seemed to work up to this point.

Good point on trying the side-mount by themselves. If that works, I'll re solder the wires in between them again and see what happens. Thanks!
