BeagleBone Black Controllers / Re: PocketScroller...
« Last post by pixelpuppy on Today at 08:16:54 AM »


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).

F16v2 Pixel Controller / Re: F16v2 doing odd things now won't reboot

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.

Load erase firmware via USB
It hopefully will boot then.

Then load 1.11 b006.

Had you used Xlights to load string definition?

F16v2 Pixel Controller / F16v2 doing odd things now won't reboot

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
« Last post by jchuchla on February 24, 2018, 10:28:26 PM »
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.

The CPU Utilization I was looking at is in Troubleshooting

Help
 - Troubleshooting

About 2/3 the way down - some reason very different than that one on the about page.

First I asked:  Dumb question likely.  Where are you finding the CPU loading?

Double click on the version number on the top of the fpp page
Bottom left of the "about.php" page where you go to check for updates. Lots of system info there.

Thanks to both of you.  I now know that either gets to the same place with lots of interesting data...

Maybe obvious but connect an Ethernet cable from the Pi RJ45 to F16 RJ45
