Raspberry Pi 3B+ challenges with DMX on PiFace
« on: September 08, 2018, 10:50:42 AM »
Hello All,


I'm not getting data out of my DMX Port. I've tested the DMX device with the Holiday Coro ActiDongle, and the Controller works as expect through FPP.


However, when I switch to the PiCap DMX, ther edoesn't seem to be data going across. (no activity light on the DMX controller, and nothing happens in display testing.  I Have FPP configured as follows:
  • Output Type: DMX-Pro
  • Port: ttyAMA0
My FPP installation is the following:
Version Info
FPP Version:v1.10-27-g259bc38
FPP OS Build:v1.8
OS Version:Raspbian GNU/Linux 7 (wheezy)
Kernel Version:4.1.19-v7+
Git Branch:v1.10
Local Git Version:259bc38 ChangeLog
Remote Git Version:259bc38

A few more  things:
  • The PiCap is a v1.00 cap.
  • I checked the voltage on one of the WS2812 ports and I am getting the 12 volts that I'm putting into the board, so the board has power
  • The PI is functioning, so if there are commands I can run to see what's going on, please let me know.


What am I missing?

Try DMX-Open
Try the "other" tty choice

DMX-Open is working for me. Excellent.
