Hi guys, I wonder if anyone has come across this problem before…
I have a few sets of WS2811s and when playing with FastLED it seems to address 3 LEDs instead of 1. e.g.
leds[0] = CRGB(255,0,0);
leds[1] = CRGB(0,255,0);
leds[2] = CRGB(0,255,0);
Lights up the first 3 LEDs on the string red, then the next 6 on the string blue.

Any ideas what’s up or how to fix?

Some strands provide 1 chip per 3 LED’s, which is what I suspect you’ve got… . as in the wrong kind of strand. That’s also more prevalent with the less expensive 12V strips. Not fixable.

Thanks Andrew, I suspect you are right. Also, they are 12v. I didn’t actually know you could get strands which weren’t individually addressable.
I was still expecting them to be individually addressable since the various blogs/forums I’ve seen mostly have strips with one chip per 3 LEDs and they still seemed to be individually addressable.
Anyway, thanks for that. I have some more 5v strips on the way and hopefully they will work as needed. I’m using them for a TV ambilight project and while I’ll still get a decent result from the ones I’ve got, it will be much better with individually addressable ones.
I’ll keep these ones for decoration or for lighting inside my new PC.
