What happens when you try it? You can experiment, you know.
I think that both strips would have to be connected to the same output pin to be controlled by one controller, but I have not tried anything like that so can't say for sure. Why not wire Dout of strip 1 to Din of strip 2 ( make them into one strip) and run them from the same pin?
when try with both like that i cant get to work with either format.
i am trying to get so 1 strip can run 1 loop and the other strip another loop as well as the option to both run on the same loop... if put both onto 1 Digital Out wouldn't that prevent me from doing this?
