Falcon Player (FPP) / SPI channel count raspberry 3 w2801
« Last post by Sandman on Today at 05:18:02 AM »
Hi i have some ws2201 pixel string each 50 px and wanna build a minitree. Maybe 600 px but max channel count is max 1530 if i add a second spi Dev 0 or 1 and set startchannell to 1531 all my pixel is flickering.

If i have only one spi activ with  1530 channelcount all fine the end of String will not light up  :-\

Is it possible to increase the max channelcount to 3000 or 6000 maybe without Error?

My goal is to Control 700 [2100 chan] Pixel ws2801
11 straps tree
3 arches

a 50 pix x 3 rgb

With 1 pi3

It is possible or need i other or 2nd Pi as controller?

Thanks for Support  :)

Sell/Trade / For Sale: 9 packs of 100 ct. Solder Shrink Tubes (18-22 AWG)
« Last post by nmiller0113 on September 18, 2017, 09:07:39 PM »
I have 9 packs of 100 count Solder Shrink Tubes for 18-22 gauge wire.  I used 100 of them last year and they worked great...no issues whatsoever.  I am not going to need them this year so I'm looking to sell them to whomever needs them :)

I bought mine from CFOL https://www.crockettfantasyoflights.com/product/solder-shrink-tubes-red-18-22-gauge/

They are $21 for a pack of 100 but I'd be willing to part with them for $12 each.  We can negotiate shipping and cost based on how many you're buying.  Thank you!

Sell/Trade / For Sale: 20 Power Distro Boards
« Last post by nmiller0113 on September 18, 2017, 08:33:38 PM »
I've got 20 extra Power Distro boards I'm selling.  They are the Andy Harrison Power Distro Boards mentioned here:

http://falconchristmas.com/forum/index.php/topic,4325.0.html

He used to have pics there but they seem to be gone now.  There is still info there and videos:

Intro Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhbWKcxFneo

Test Video matrix: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjWLv8GYzxQ

Test Video blowing fuse: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbsH_Z7xbzU

These are fully assembled kits that were sold for $11.50 originally, as marked in the post I listed.  8 of the 20 have never been used, but they all are fully functioning and even the used ones were only used one season.  They worked great.  I'm willing to part with them for $7 each.  We can negotiate shipping and cost based on how many you're buying.  Thank you!

F16V3 Pixel Controller / Re: F16V???
« Last post by Sawdust on September 18, 2017, 01:13:43 PM »

I think you should look at the F4v3 @ $120.  It has 4 ports of 1024 pixels each, and 1-RJ45 universal output that can be configured for DMX.
If you add more pixels in the future, you can expand by adding the differential accessories.

Falcon Player (FPP) / Re: FPP/RS485 Dongle
« Last post by PeteyHall on September 18, 2017, 12:16:30 PM »
I ordered a couple of those adapters about 18 months ago and what I received was USB to ethernet and not USB to RS485.  They do look alike.
Thanks, I'll be sending them back as they don't even work when connected to my computer and just go with picaps to do the trick.

The Water Cooler / Re: Advice needed on extending Wifi

FYI the PicoStation products from Ubiquiti are no longer sold. The UniFi Mesh is the current outdoor-capable WIFI access point they sell.


While you may have luck with bridge mode, if you want some Nest cameras you may be better off biting the bullet and running a CAT6 cable from your indoor router to somewhere outside.  From there you can then add another WIFI AP or switch.


amazon still has nano transmitetrs, i just got two of them

Since you can't get a cable upstairs, is there a way to place a router high in your basement on the side of your house that needs coverage?  I've used a lot of routers and most of them would have been able to hit my garage from my basement.  I like Jim Nealand's idea about using a second router hanging off the first.  This would separate your show and home networks and give you internet access.

Of course, uploading to the Pi is one thing but live video is another...
