Don't think this is a SD problem? I am switching between about 6 of them.

I am just now trying to run lights to this new img. It does not seem to be happy set up like previous versions. I am running static etho IP with DCHP wlano. I have noticed when I set these two settings it kicks the FPPD off and will not restart. I have tried a few different ways to set etho but cannot get any blinky blinky. No output at all. I have enabled output E 131 since that is what I have always used. Also set up the outputs just as before and nothing?
Just to check my sanity I installed version 1.8 back on the SD card and ran same settings for outputs,etho,enable outputs etc...  First time the lights worked perfectly.
Does this have something to do with a newer type Pi3 B+?  I am using Pi3 B 1.2? They do have different WiFi adapters.

I also have Pi 3 Model B v1.2 and they are running fine.
You state your SD's are fine....are you using USB drives too, or is everything on the SD like mine is.
One more thing.  . . . did you expand your SD?  That is my first step after initial 315 start-up

Thanks for the great replies but I had to stop laughing so hard to actually read them.  These bug things you mention....do you mean people actually come up and sneak small recording devices in your boxes???  If so, then I'll use a metal screen to keep it more secure.  I mean, other than that, I don't know what these bug things are...hahah.  But it is true there are (thankfully) a LOT less than when we lived in Indiana and yes, any we do have are pretty much in the frozen state that time of year.  Some of the best replies I've ever seen.   :D .  Thank you for the advice so I think I'll give it a go with just the cable outlets as vents and see how it goes.  Like I said, I really want to be conservative with the supplies so hopefully it's not going to be an issue.  Thanks again and hopefully you can read this between having to bat away the skeeters and gnats and whatever other gigantic flying attackers you're dealing with this time of year. lol.

F4V2 4-Port E131 controller / Re: newbie question
« Last post by kryptic on Today at 10:12:50 AM »
Did you ever get a response to this question? I'm on the same path as you. I have the Pi, looking at F4V3 but curious if I can use it as a stand alone controller. Any tutorials you used to get the Pi going?
what problems are you having getting the Pi going do you have it connected to a network and a network switch I used a network switch to get both my Pi running falcon Pi Player and connecting to the Falcon F4v3, there was a writeup on how to connect it using the wifi from the Pi but I could never get that to work so I used the network switch and once connected I set my PI ip static and my F4v3 to a static ip address. I will check this link again later today if you still need help


I think that when they  update the firmware for the F4v3  that may be added but for now it does not run solo you have to have a Pi or BBB to connected.

You should be able to easily run both of those off the Pi and F4v3 if you have more pixels than the F4v3 can handle you can also add another diff board to get more channels. I have both the Falcon Pi Cap and the Falcon F4v3, and this will be my first year doing 5 volt pixels. :D

Hello I hit another snag I have no  idea whats causing channel 3 and 4 to not send data to the pixels, it shows my controller is receiving data on all 4 channels. I am pretty sure that I have everything setup correct in my xlights setup and models and to the Ras pi and F4v3 controller unless its still struggling with my absolute universes that I have setup. The pixels on channel 3 and 4 light up like  they are only getting power but do not change color or flash even in test mode like they dont understand the data being sent. Any ideas what could be causing this problem.
I have my universes setup
channel 1 universe 1
channel 2 universe 10
channel 3 universe 30
channel 4 universe 60


all my channels are set to 512
they are all set the same in xlights, Ras Pi, and F4v3


Thanks

can not go static on wlan0 status page will load eventually, approx 5 minutes, but can not get any other pages to load. if its in dhcp will load all pages at normal speed

Try another IP address.  Your router likely has that one assigned to something else.

If you have used a number, knowingly or not, the router leases it out (sets as reserve for the lease period). You need to allow for that lease time to expire before assigning again.
