Windows must be used to configure the sender/receivers, Parallels worked fine for one person
In order to configure the LED panels you will need to download the Linsn LED studio software. It's free, however they will ask for a serial number- just enter "888888".
We also suggest our LED wall configuration files
Before opening the software, connect the sender board to the computer via USB. This will let you configure both the sender and receiver board. Now open the software and click Option>>Software Setup
In order to access the configuration screen, type 'linsn' anywhere while the window is active. It doesn't have to be in a text box. Typing those letters in sequence will bring up another password dialog box. The password is "168".
On the sender tab, you can adjust the display resolution, mirror/rotation, as well the start X/Y position of what part of the screen will display on the LED wall. This will update in realtime. Click Save on Sender when you've got it where you want it.
On the receiver tab, load up the Adafruit_96x96.RCG configuration file, and the LED wall will mirror the 96x96 area you specified in the sender tab.

The display connection tab is used for more elaborate setups with multiple receiver cards. In our case we're only using one, displaying 96 x 96 pixels. If things aren't working properly, load up the Adafruit_96x96.CON file.

Don't forget to Save on Receiver when you're done configuring the settings.

Peter wrote in to us after following this tutorial and says...

During testing a 96 x 64 pixel video wall I experienced the following problems especially with your recently delivered LED panels (ID: 420):

  • Several red dots appeared across the screen. This is most striking (and disturbing) while fading scenes.
  • Furthermore, the video is displaced horizontally by one pixel, so the origin of the video on the upper left side must be located at (x, y) = (1, 0) instead of (0, 0).

Luckily, a small configuration change solves all problems. Please consider to modify the receiver card setting in "Adawall_96x96.RCG” as depicted to the left. Note: when setting “Scan clock” to 18.3 the software automatically sets the “Phase of clock” to 3, which seems to be a recommended value.

At this point you should see the top left 96 pixels mirrored on your LED wall! Mess around with the start X and start Y values on the sender configuration and load up some videos and gifs :)
