Hi I am building a controller and recently purchased a lot of your parts. I bought the Brainv2 from your supplier in UK and all parts from your online store.
I have a few questions.
1. I bought 7 Omni RGB's amongst other parts. After watching the video titled "Livid Omni RGB 8*8 Grid" on your website and reading the following "While we are on the subject of Brain v2, one of our users Stephen Noreyko who did some similar LED grouping videos, also made a very nice 8×8 RGB grid using our Omni RGB boards and a Brain V2. He didn’t even need to wire or solder anything, totally plug and play!" also on your website, I was very surprised when they came without the headers fitted. Can you explain this?
2. I have soldered three headers on and connected 1 board with 16 buttons to the BrainV2. I have tested the circuits and they are fine. I have the Omni RGB button header connected to button header 000-015 and the 2 LED matrices connected to LED header L1 on the brainV2, while the buttons all show up on brain tools 0-15 when pressed, the LEDS don't come on in sync with the button pressed. All I want is the button to light up and stay on when I press it and turn off when I press it again. Maybe I have missed something but this is not plug and play.Can you tell me how to configure them in a clear and concise way using Brain V2 configuration software.
3. I will be using 4 omni boards in the same configuration as the user in the above mention video, 8*8 config. But I want to just use 4 LED headers on the Brainv2, this is because I will need the rest for other LED's for other buttons in my design. Can I use the Omni RGB's like the other none RGB omni's and just use a Header for the buttons and 1 header for the LED's per board as shown on the wiki in the 16 button config? it doesn't matter if its monochrome. This would leave me with 4 remaining headers for the rest of my LED's.
While there are a lot of info on your omni's there are very little on your Omni RGB. I am sorry if I seem like a noob but I am new to your hardware. I am confused by the new Brain v2 configure. If you just explain to me how to configure 1 omni RGB with 16 buttons to light up and stay on when pressed once and go of when pressed again I am sure I can figure the rest.
Please can you help.
