Generic Serial works ok after Display Testing, but not before
« on: August 12, 2017, 02:20:06 PM »
I am using Generic Serial, port ttyacm0, 9600 baud, ! for header. My Arduino received data lite flickers at the right time (off between songs), but my lights don't change.  I do a Display Testing sequence just fine. when I go back to Status page and reselect playlist and hit play, all works ok till I reboot, then I have to go through the display testing routine again to get my lights to follow the music.

I am really not wanting to use my pc to put on a show. Also, is there a way to shutdown the PI without using a PC?

You may need to supply FPP version info if you're not using the latest version.
You can do some shutdown scripts either off time or via an input to the Pi but regardless of which way you go it doesn't actually shut down the Pi but just closes down FPP. The Pi hardware itself doesn't support being shutdown.
