Quoted from Starwriter:
Oops, just went there and reread it. He is using ColorDMD in the speaker panel. The smartdmd has in and out ribbon cable connectors, so he must be going ribbon from dmd driver board to smart dmd and then ribbon from smartdmd to colordmd.
Actually, no, this is DMD Extender, not SmartDMD.
I have experimented with both. The SmartDMD was my previous set up, but I found it difficult to keep it from overheating. Since then, I've been working with DMD Extender, which like SmartDMD, has a passthrough for the DMD ribbon cable. In this case, it passes through to my ColorDMD.
So, to be clear, this is DMD Extender, not SmartDMD. Let me know if you have any questions on how I've configured it.
