For my Christmas show I'll be using the F16V2 with universe 1-32 and my new F16V3 for universes 33 on up.  I'll hook up a cable to the lor output on the F16V2 as this worked fine last Christmas.  But for Halloween I'll only be using the F16V3 which will be using some of the same elements in the Christmas show.  So I've set it up and all the Halloween sequences with those starting channels (universe 33+), but I want to hook the LOR controller into it as well, starting with channel 1 (and some dumb dmx starting at channel 513).  Is this possible?  Cause the LOR has connectivity but no light output.  If I change the serial output to 1 for serial output 2 and 513 for serial output 3 they turn red and say that it's outside the channel range of 33794 -xxxxx. 


I'll hooking the F!6V2 up in the meantime, but was hoping to use that for testing all the new props in the basement. 


Appreciate any insight.

F16V3 Pixel Controller / Re: newbie help with f16V3 universe setup
« Last post by TNF250 on Today at 05:02:53 PM »
The way I have mine setup. I'm have F16v3 serial ports (I'm use all 4) configured as pixelnet. Port 1 starting address 1, port 2 starting address 4097 ect ... Then in the string ports configuration of the F16v3 starting address is above the 16384.


All of my DMX equipment comes off the DMX port on the Active Hub. Then in Xlight everything is E1.31 and transfered to the FPP once uploaded from Xlight as E1.31. I have all the DMX stuff on channel 1-512 and all my pixelnet at 513-16384. And everything else coming for the F16v3 string ports above that.

There are 2 files that contain the network information. I believe you also need to update interfaces.fpp if you want to modify it manually.

Learning Center / Re: (SOLVED) RPi Model A+ wifi?

There are 2 files that contain the network information.

The file interfaces under /root/etc/network contains the IP address information. There is also a duplicate of this file called interfaces.fpp in the same directory.

The file should look like this:
Code: [Select]
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet manual
  wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
wireless-power off

iface FPP-wlan0 inet static
  dns-nameservers 8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4
  address 10.10.10.100
  netmask 255.0.0.0
  network 10.0.0.0
  gateway 10.10.10.252

iface default inet dhcp

iface eth0:0 inet static
  address 192.168.0.10
  netmask 255.255.255.0
  network 192.168.0.0

wpa_supplicant.conf under root/etc/wpa_suspplicant contains the wireless SSID and password. There is a duplicate of this tile called wpa_supplicant.conf.fpp

The file should look like this:
Code: [Select]
ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1

network={
  ssid="SSID"
  psk="password"
  scan_ssid=1
  id_str="FPP-wlan0"
}

You should be able to manually modify these 4 files with your information and get it to boot with the correct wireless settings.

Falcon Player (FPP) / Re: different video sync
« Last post by stefano on Today at 03:14:50 PM »
Thanks JonB256
I'll try

And what if, instead of sync start,  I want video 2 starts when video 1 ends, and video 3 starts when video 2 ends?

BeagleBone Black Controllers / Re: New BBB Image - Debian Stretch (9.1)
« Last post by dkulp on Today at 02:56:54 PM »
I downloaded the latest one I could find (
v1.9-bbb-82-g48a86ec (bbb-stretch-v1.x branch)) and noted that the Restore settings button does not work.  I can backup the settings just fine, but when I select the .json file and click Restore, I get an Error 500 in the browser.  Thoughts?


Can you do an update an try again?   There are a bunch of duplicate function names that the newer version of PHP doesn't seem to like.  I renamed a bunch, but I'm not sure if I got all the ones that are needed.

If the relays click on and off a few times during bootup of the Pi, then it is being scanned but perhaps not mounted.

Thanks JonB256,

Since we didn't see anything in @deplanche's lsusb -v results, I suspect it may be either inadequate power as Pat suggested, or changes between the 1.5 and 1.8 image (OS Build).

@deplanche any chance you could upgrade to the 1.8 OS image to eliminate that possibility?

F16V3 Pixel Controller / Re: newbie help with f16V3 universe setup
« Last post by zwiller on Today at 02:00:42 PM »
I feel bad since this is one of the things I really wanted to work on but I am happy with my V1's.  The V3 does alot of cool things but nothing I really need.  That said, IME issues like these are normally not with the V3 but the FPP config.  Typically, the universe setup is off.  I think most guys overthink the FPP setup and forget the controllers are really doing the work.  IE the FPP page should be just be showing the total universes being used and setup as E1.31.  The V3 then breaks them down into serial (dmx1) and the hub breaks the pixelnet down to dmx.

Falcon Player (FPP) / Re: different video sync
« Last post by JonB256 on Today at 01:47:15 PM »
Hi
I'm new to use FPP an Raspberry PI so I need same help.
I have three Raspberry PI/FPP connected through a switch (no internet connection), one set as Master and the other two set as Remote.
Each of those is also connected to a different display via HDMI.
I have three different mp4 video and I want to play them in sync, I mean they have to start at the same time.

Any suggestions on how to do that?

Thanks
Name them the same.
But, they'll stop when the master stops.
