I would also like to say that if everyone is saying go pi 3b, need to get that info out there and everyone I asked and talked to said BBB all the way.



It depends entirely on what you are doing.   If the plan is to drive the P5/P10/whatever panels directly from the device, then BBB IS the way to go.   If you plan on using a ColorLight or Linsn to drive the panel, then the Pi3B+ is the way to go.

Agreed here and that is fine, just trying to pass the information along.  What I am having a hard time understanding is how we bypassed the FPP's default network settings and set ETH 1 to a static cleared the issue with the same processor, BBB network load etc.  We deleted the media/config/interface.eth0 and then changed etc/network/interfaces to this:


Code: [Select]
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).


# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback


# The primary network interface
#auto eth0
#iface eth0 inet dhcp
# Example to keep MAC address between reboots
#hwaddress ether DE:AD:BE:EF:CA:FE


##connman: ethX static config
#connmanctl services
#Using the appropriate ethernet service, tell connman to setup a static IP address for that service:
#sudo connmanctl config <service> --ipv4 manual <ip_addr> <netmask> <gateway> --nameservers <dns_server>


##connman: WiFi
#
#connmanctl
#connmanctl> tether wifi
#connmanctl> enable wifi
#connmanctl> scan wifi
#connmanctl> services
#connmanctl> agent on
#connmanctl> connect wifi_*_managed_psk
#connmanctl> quit


# Ethernet/RNDIS gadget (g_ether)
# Used by: /opt/scripts/boot/autoconfigure_usb0.sh
iface usb0 inet static
    address 192.168.7.2
    netmask 255.255.255.252
    network 192.168.7.0
    gateway 192.168.7.1


auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
    address 192.168.1.220
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    network 192.168.1.0


auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
    address 192.168.100.220
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    network 192.168.100.0


# add the default route
post-up route add default gw 192.168.1.1 dev eth0




Here is Interfaces.default as well

I thought I read a post where someone was experiencing a ESPixelStick delay in V2.0....I can't find the post but I found the delay.

1.x or Vixen 3 play with lights synced to beat, but v2.0 does not.
Used same router for all tests, and more tests with 2 different routers and 4 AP's  Also ran on sever different Pi's (Zero W, 2 & 3 - not 3B+ yet)

v1.x and Vixen 3 ran perfect on all devices.
v2.0 had a few milliseconds delay - very noticeable; on all devices.  And delayed throughout the whole sequence.

Running Version: v2.x-master-609-g613aad6a on all Pi's

No, not the one . . I read that one.  In his tests he seems to start off right and builds the lag.  The One I recall talked about not syncing with the music anymore.  Maybe it was another site.  Anyways this appears to be an issue that needs to be fixed.

Music out of sync with lights.
More testing reveals the worst case is Multicast.  Unicast is delayed a very small amount, but not enough to change.  This issue will eliminate Multicast usage with ESPixelStick and v2.0 til fix - may be an issue with other Multicast devices.  Chris, Dan ?

Have some of the Pi libraries changed recentl, that could effect FPP - Pi3B+ is failing to start FPPD after updating to 612.
I've successfully loaded a Pi3B+ earlier last week, but 4 attempts in the last few days fail.  I can load on a Pi3 and transfer over to the Pi3B+ and run without any issues.....(so far)

Any comments that can help me get FPPD running on Pi3B+ after it update to 612.
(I tried forcing another update but no help)

UPDATE:  Now running into the same issues with the Pi3 - once updated to 612 - STOPPED FPPD


UPDATE 2:  Almost all update now shut down FPPD: However Jradical has a fix.  goto post http://falconchristmas.com/forum/index.php/topic,8795.msg83600.html#msg83600
Reboot for fix to take place.


Version Info   
FPP Version:   v2.x-master-612-g78e44ade
FPP OS Build:   v2.0alpha
OS Version:   Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)
Kernel Version:   4.14.26-v7+

Please........

Would someone develope a current day image of v2.0 Alpha, replacing 315.  Update is too large and now having too many hiccups causing FPPD not to srart.

I think someone posted this before, but it still worthy for me to repeat...

Update:  Seeing multiple complaints of failed loads due to stopped FPPD.

And just to clarify a bit for others who missed it...

There are new, updated SD Images on Dan's download page as of July 9 (20180709). He posted both Pi and BB images.

This is different than what is posted in the start of this topic thread.  As of now, if you are installing V2.x you will want to START with the 20180709 image, not the 20180315 image.  There have already been a couple of updates in the last two days so you still want to do the FPP->Help->About-Manual Update after installing the SD image, but its a lot better than the 100+ updates needed for the 0315 image.

xLights and Vixen3 for sequencing / FPP for scheduling and playing / Falcon controllers for pixels / DIY controllers for everything else
