AAH! Thank you!! I did have a problem with my channel output configuration. After getting the channel configuration correct the fppd is now running! Now onto my next challenge of getting a sequence running with xlights! Thanks for the help AAH!
I found the vendor, but was only large AWG wire. Further reseach shows it is K Class wire...designates the number of strands.When you say large gauge are you referring to 0-4 awg?
I upgraded both of my red boards when they were network connected. I only used the usb method for my blue board which does not have a network upgrade option. Not only were they network connected, but they were network connected to a Pi which was wirelessly connected to my show router. Have you tried the network upgrade?
apt-get install wireless-regdb iw crda ipcalc haveged hostapd dnsmasq dnsmasq-base libnetfilter-conntrack3
update-rc.d hostapd disable
update-rc.d dnsmasq disable

Could you just use vnc viewer on the phone and install vnc server on pi?
