Falcon Player Plugins / Re: EDM-RDS
« Last post by EButler on Today at 01:47:47 PM »
I followed this instructions listed by Aaron.  I did struggle a bit and made some goofy mistakes but I did finally make it thru all the steps and everything "appeared" to be going ok.  At the very end I was able to access the EDM RDS plugin UI and was able to change the Station ID.  When I played a song the name of the song also appeared in the "Now Playing" area.


I went to the truck to check radio and the station ID I entered was displayed on the radio; however, none of the song titles ever showed up.  I rebooted the pi to see if that would make a difference and then I got the error message mentioned in this thread several times "AttributeError:  "NoneType' object has no attribute 'send'.

I stumbled around and eventually saw an error saying pigpio wasn't running.  I went into the shell and typed "sudo pigpiod" and then it appeared everything was working again as I described above except the song title not showing up on the radio.  I also noticed that each time i shut down the pi that I would need to go back in and do the "sudo pigpiod".  Maybe this is normal...not sure...I'm still very new to FPP and the plugins.

I'm not sure what to look at next.  I switched my GPIO numbers around in the rds-song.py file and the plugin showed question marks...which I assume means I had it wired and coded correctly the first time so I changed it back.  I am using pins 3 (green wire), pin 5 (white wire), and pin 6 as a ground (black wire).  I translated this to GPIO 2 and 3 when I updated the code line in the rds-song.py file.

Any suggestions from this group would be appreciated.  For reference I am using FPP v1.8 and have a pi3.  Although I went thru the steps Aaron published, I have no idea what most of the stuff means. 

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Don't know what happened there, I fixed my post.

I am having the same issue with the random ghosting around text .  I am using a Pi3 with Rons  adapter and just received P10s.  I hope we can get this solved because it makes the matrix ugly.

I may be wrong but since you are just "receiving" data in wouldn't you want to keep the e1.31 to multicast and not have the ip address.  Xlights is configured to do the unicast, you would only care about the unicast when sending out of the fpp.  Right now I think fpp is confused and says I should only be getting data from the .29 ip address.  Me I would try removing the ip address and changing it back to multicast only on the BBB/FPP config.

but in my display it is universe 25 channel 1 (or so i think).
and xlights gives it a starting channel somewhere around 20745

So where did you get the 20745.....your screen shot shows xLights Univ 25 starting at 19849

Also, is there a reason you have duplicate universe 1 thru ???, starting at output 75

I don't understand; the numbers you quote are different from your screen shot.

the 20745 came from xlights
the 19849 is still attached to another address

i am wondering if the only way to get this thing to play nice is to have it be the FIRST device then all the other boards, etc can be later.

Sawdust, that is a great explanation.  It ought to go in the manual and the wiki.   I knew all that but have never tried to write it down or saw it written down quite that way.  Good job.

Falcon Player (FPP) / Re: FPP/Pi/Rons Matrix controller 12 panels?
« Last post by Ebuechner on Today at 06:09:42 AM »
I had a similar problem. The pi likes to see equal outputs.
I would suggest setting it up as a 4 by 6 but physically you're only using it as a 4 x 5. Use all three outputs, top 2 rows as output 1, row three and four output 2, row 5 output 3.
You would set up your Phantom row 6 with the remaining outputs.

I'm still a bit confused...what do you mean by some?


Some Panels?
Some Pi's?
Some configurations?
Some of Ron's boards?


I'm very puzzled as to why adding 9-12 on output2 breaks the signal on output1...if it was the panels I would think output1 would still work.   My panels are 1/8 scan btw.




Not trying to be difficult, just want to understand what's going on since I've not found anything documented on the variables at play.


Lastly, output 3 doesn't work if I use a 4x5 configuration.   If I set the config to 4x6 I get signal on output3.  Is this a limitation that requires each output to have the same number of panels configured?
