Octoscroller/octoscrolla panel compatibility list
« on: April 20, 2018, 07:05:40 AM »
I was asked about whether P5 panels would run on my Octoscrolla's and I had to say I didn't know as I haven't had any to test.
Can someone share the info with me or point me to where the info is on what panel configurations work with the original octoscroller layout and with what version of FPP as there seems to be a couple. I actually have an old version of 1.5 on my panel BBB and it refuses to connect to github to get updates.

Thanks in advance

Alan

Use the latest FPP-v2.0-Alpha-BBB-20180425.zip image from http://dankulp.com/bbb/ and it should support any P5 you have.   Also, if you find a panel that doesn't work, send one to me and I'll make sure it does work.


For the most part, all "indoor" style panels that are not 1:32 scan are supported across the board.   MOST outdoor panels are now supported as well.  However, there are new style outdoor panels this year that have a different addressing mode than previous.  I THINK they are now all working, but I'm not 100% sure.

Thanks Dan
I had heard that your BBB build was being integrated into the 1.9 or 2.0 build but I haven't seen details of it or where to download from.
