So far, not doing well with LEDVision.  Unfortunately the video is for such a different version of software, and with the poor quality of the video and no audio, it's not practical to determine what was what.  I was able (only by a direct connection from a computer to the ColorLight card without even a switch in between) for the software to detect the card, only to find that version 5.0 won't work on my card.  However I had 4.2 on my laptop and that does detect the card, but I have no idea what to do with it.  The screens are completely different than the video shows, and the help is almost useless (likely it's fine if you already know what you're doing).

Can someone walk me through this setup?  A phone call would likely be best...  Can also do a TeamViewer session.
XLights/Nutcracker / Sequencing a “manual” show
« Last post by Sixfalls on Today at 12:12:16 PM »
Is it possible to sequence a show that can be manually advanced (perhaps by mouse click, space bar, etc? I am somewhat new to xlights and am not sure if this is a possibility.
Take a look at the video here: This was made with an older version of LEDVision, so a few things look different, but it shows how to navigate to the main areas that need to be modified.

Damn, I sure wish that had the audio.  It's obvious from watching it that he is explaining stuff, but with no audio, it's really hard to follow - especially with such poor video quality.  I'll watch it a few more times and see if I can figure it out..
So I did manage to get my 2x2 P10 panel configured with my 2nd card. It seems to be working OK.  Now back to the Jumbotron.
BeagleBone Black Controllers / Re: PocketScroller...

The F8-Bs are very nice, high capacity boards. Highly recommend them.
I agree!  :D

I will be looking to get my hands on one of your F8-Bs when the group buy comes around.

I have an extra one to sell if you're interested. Original cost $42 for F8-B plus $55 for BeagleBoneBlack.   Selling as one complete package with the latest FPP software pre-installed and ready to run $75 plus shipping ($7 flat rate) plus PayPal fee (or "send to friend" for no fee).

Yes only Windows for the F16V2 (Blue board). Need to use USB programmer. 

Download Windows USB uploader from store page.

Then the erase firmware here.;sa=downfile&id=71

Load erase firmware via USB
It hopefully will boot then.

Then load 1.11 b006.

Had you used Xlights to load string definition?

Running v1.06

By the way, how do you update the firmware via Mac? I can only find windows versions and the controller site said Mac version coming but that note  looks to be a year old.

Falcon Player (FPP) / Re: Beta SD image for FPP running on Raspbian Stretch

Just wanted to report in that i downloaded and setup the new image with minimal trouble tonight. 
I did have an initial issue where writing the image failed.  I had to delete all of the volumes on the SD and reformat it as a fresh card.  After doing that, the write went without a hitch.  I dropped the card into a pi and booted it up and it came right up.  No problems noted. It just came right up.  It was at the FPP login prompt even before my monitor powered up and switched to HDMI.
I probably missed the note somewhere above in this thread, but at first, i was a bit confused as to why it came up as a fresh new pi even though it had an existing USB drive in.  But as soon as i navigated to the settings and found that the SD was set as the primary storage, i switched it and rebooted, and the old config came right up.
This was all done on a Pi3.  I plan on moving the SD card over to my master tomorrow (on a old B+) to see how things go.
