How many LED can be run through one lighting channel of a LNP and a CP?

I have a lot of daisy chainable RGB strips I'm running with ICUE and adapter cables. But I've kept the number of LED down to 60 per channel since that's the max you can set normally for LED strips. But screwing around on ICUE I now see an option in lighting setup for the LS100 external LED strips which lets you program more than 60. That wasn't there before when I first migrated over to ICUE.

So how many LED in total is safe to run off a LNP and CP now since I can go above 60 and maybe cut down on the number of lighting channels I'm currently using. Since I'm not powering them off a wall socket like the LS, I just have the LNP and CP with their 4.5A sata power, I don't want to overload and pop anything, especially the commander pros. Even if it's not that much above 60 it could help my setup free a channel or 2.

Not understanding. How can it be both 120 per channel and also 204 per channel for a LNP? Did you mean 204 in total for both channels? 250 for both channels of a Co Pro?

 

How would I even program that much in ICUE when the most it'll let me select in external strips is 132 per channel if I pick 1 1.4M, 1 450m, and 1 350m LS100 strips?

And don't I need to be adding up amps of the strips instead of going off a number when trying to use that many on a LNP or Co Pro? If I go off what you told me for say the Co Pro I can run 500 LED in total for both channels, how is that not going to be more then 4.5amps?

The Lighting Node Pro is capable of controlling 204 LEDs off of a single channel, OR has the ability to control up to 120 LEDs per channel when utilizing both. It is one or the other. If you have more than 120 LEDs being powered off a single LED channel on the LNP you cannot utilize the second LED channel.
