Falcon Player (FPP) / Re: Installing FPP on new BBG issues

I'd try plugging in a monitor to see if there's any status messages that might shed some insight as to what is happening.

free shipping is only good if you are prepared to wait forever

Captain,


I noticed on the doc for installing the new os's that is using a v3 flasher.  Does the 1.5 version need to be updated to preform the install on the emmc?  I'm not sure what version is currently being used in the 1.5 img.

To turn these images into eMMC flasher images, edit the /boot/uEnv.txt file on the Linux partition on the microSD card and remove the '#' on the line with 'cmdline=init=/opt/scripts/tools/eMMC/init-eMMC-flasher-v3.sh'. Enabling this will cause booting the microSD card to flash the eMMC. Images are no longer provided here for this to avoid people accidentally overwriting their eMMC flash.

You could replace location 1 with an Ubiquiti 5G omni.

That should solve your issue with the narrow beam width.


Very good information.  I'll look into putting this in the center.  Thanks.

Have you looked at the PicoStation M2.  The PicoStatio M provides 360 coverage at a range of up to 500 m – suitable for a medium-range deployment. The robust, weatherproof case withstands harsh outdoor conditions.

It has 1000mW of output power.


I actually have 3 of them on the shelf as I type this. Forgot all about picking them up about 14 months ago.  (Old age is .... something.)  Now I have 3 picostation M2hps and 3 nanostation M5s.  If it would be better to have all of one, or the other, I'll try to find more.

Note that the reason for going with the nanostation M5s was the fact that the Picostations are no longer on Ubiquiti's site.  At least none that I could find.

I'm having the same issue of installing.  I have 3 BBG and all three are doing the same.  It never installs.   I tested installing the latest version os from beaglebone website and it installed without any issue.  I'm thinking the BBG doesn't like something about the fpp emmc image.

What version of software are you using?

Falcon Player (FPP) / Installing FPP on new BBG issues
« Last post by Blickensderfer on Today at 04:02:26 PM »
I currently have 4 BBB with the 4G flash and have installed FPP for the EMMC 1.5 without any issues.  I just purchased 3 BBG and they have the 4G flash as well.  I have tried installing the EMMC 1.5 on them and it never takes.  It appears it starts off the SD and once it boots up to continue, all 4 leds blink together not like the pattern on the BBB. I've let run over an hour and the pattern doesn't change and it didn't turn off like the BBB. I've tried 2 different micro SD cards and download a fresh 1.5 from the website.  I know the download is good, I flash a BBB at the Tri State Gathering over the weekend.

Any insight to try to get FPP installed?

Thanks,
Dan
