Congrats on a job well done and a big thank you for all the work you do.
I like 'em so much, if you have another F8-PB to sell i would like to buy it.
Falcon Player (FPP) / Re: lags on serial DMX512 Espixelstick

All the espixelsticks are setup in multicast.
Try Unicast, multicast on wireless is a disaster generally/
On FPP v1.x ESP devices worked best on Multicast, almost flawless.  Unicast went south if all controllers were not functioning 100%

There appears to be a issue with FPP v2.0 and Multicast.  I amexperiencing substantial delays with the ESP when using Multicast, but unicast is close enough, to spot on.

Until Multicast is corrected, unicast should be used
F48 Pixel Controller / 4 string differentials

i see that the receiver boards can be 5vdc or there a local setting (like a pin or switch) or is voltage set up on the controller (such as the f48 or f16v3)

Thanks looking forward for this  ;D

I will be ready for the testing

What firmware are you running on the ESPixelSticks?

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 til fix - may be an issue with other Multicast devices.  Chris, Dan ?
Falcon Player (FPP) / Buttons & Triggering Issues, v2.x-609
« Last post by TastyHamSandwich on June 19, 2018, 08:52:29 AM »
Full Version: v2.x-master-609-g613aad6a (master branch)

So I've been playing with button functionality on the FPP lately, and I'm definitely seeing some issues, but I am unsure if it is me or the software on some of 'em. Yesterday, I set up a button to trigger a 30s test animation through the StartPlaylist script. This worked flawlessly, using Event 1/1 to trigger the script on the Falling of GPIO#4, where it is attached. Sadly, I noticed that in order to retrigger this script, I have to click "Stop Now" in the GUI - otherwise, the button does nothing, even when the animation sequence has ended; if the Player says its Playing, it won't trigger - it must be idle.

Today, I tried to set up a second button to see if I can trigger a different playlist instead. I set it all up identically, using GPIO#26 currently. I haven't been able to get this one to do a dang thing. I switched GPIO pins, tested the button with a multimeter, triggered the event itself via the GUI, and I get nothing. This is set to trigger a different test animation from a different test playlist, using a different copy of the StartPlaylist script. I should clarify, when I trigger the event via the GUI, it works fine, so I know the playlist and the script and the event are all hunky dory. I'm just perplexed as to what else it might be, since I've switched GPIO pins repeatedly, swapped the events around (I can trigger playlist 2 with the first button, if thats the one the event points to, but the 2nd button wont do the reverse).

It's like, I can get 1 button to work and make it trigger whatever I want it to trigger, but a 2nd button won't work period, even though its functionality has been confirmed.

I'm really trying to explore what functionality I have available to me so I know what we can offer our clients reliably. I would very much like a reliable way to trigger/retrigger a playlist via a button, for our customers that want that level of control (especially for "countdown" scenarios). Anyone know if I'm doing something wrong, or have any other suggestions? As always, I very much appreciate your help.

Also... Scheduler priorities... do want ;)
F16V3 Pixel Controller / Missing the MISC SETTING
« Last post by trkeenan on June 19, 2018, 06:17:48 AM »

I am missing the MISC SETTING in the set up screen on my F16V3.  I am trying to set up the fan.

Why is it missing?  How do I get it?
