BeagleBone Black Controllers / Re: F32B

I need to test the differential outputs to make sure I have the pinouts correct.   I've just been very busy.  Baseball, Soccer, and Lacrosse season keeps me busy with the kids this time year.   I'm hoping to test that out sometime this week. 

I've tried to keep the board under 15cmx15cm since the cost at elecrow jumps pretty bad when one of the dimensions goes above that.   That said, the parts are the killer.   The 33 fuse holders themselves are $25 at digikey.  I think all the parts are about $90 or so.  (for quantity 1) Some parts are cheaper at mouser, but I haven't really priced everything out yet. 
I'm just curious. I think I saw them alternating and I know they flash rapidly on power up. Otherwise, they just appear to pulse about at about 1 second intervals.
One thing, and I have been using Windows 7 64Bit to configure the Color light board before transferring the connection to the Falcon.

You need the following:
A GIG Switch OR GIG USB ethernet adapter to provide GIG signal to the Color Light card.

My desktop Windows machine has 2 GIG ports on it. So I have one of those going directly to the Color Light Card,and I have a USB GIG ethernet adapter in the FPP / Pi connected to the Color light card. ONLY ONE of the systems can be talking to the Card at one time.

Meaning, if you are configuring the Colorlight card from the Windows machine, the FPP Daemon CANNOT be running as it would be sending data to the color light card. and If you want to control the color light card From the FPP, then the Led Vision software cannot be running on the Windows machine.

Just because the Color light card has two ethernet ports in it for ease, that ease is more for redunancy and also possibly daisy chaining.


Do share, I have not even gone off to figure out where to nab the software yet for the Colorlight sitting someplace in my stash.

pulling up a chair..

I like less on an output, but was shy of a few outputs last year.  Less of your show goes dark if you have an issue.
Cap'n is the read only supported in the version 1.9 branch or more of a get all the way up and then run a script?

Have a couple of the zero laying around.

Hi Jon,

A quality sound card makes a world of difference. Bits & numbers don't matter if the card doesn't have a quality output. What are your original files? A properly encoded MP3 will sound indistinguishable from the original. My hearing is perfect (I've had it tested, thank God I still have it), I've done the research, and a joint stereo --vbr-new -V 2 (use V 0 if you really want to be a stickler) sounds identical to the original CD. Amazon MP3s are encoded with excellent settings.

I think the check mark is only for sync I just played a seq on my portable matrix without it being checked in the multisync tab.
