Still need to get the pricing back but $200-$210 is going to be pretty close.

I'm doing the same thing myself. I've planned my whole network with this card in mind. I just hope the presale is soon.

F16v2 Pixel Controller / Re: Output to LOR
« Last post by jem5136 on January 17, 2017, 03:02:41 PM »
In this year's display I would like to use the 18 LOR controllers that I've used in years' past, however I'm not  sure how to do this. I know the LOR controllers can run in DMX mode but I didn't have much luck last season to get them to actually connect with the rest of the show when in DMX mode. So this year I'd like to keep them running in LOR protocol if possible. I've heard the F16v2 can output a LOR network, but I'd like to know if anyone has tried this and been successful with it. Also, are there any limits as far as channel count?

The F16V2 has jumpers to change the pinouts to suit LOR controllers but still outputs DMX and requires the LOR controllers to change to DMX mode (automatic on the LOR controllers I've seen)

Cheers


That was the issue I was having last year, they wouldn't connect to the DMX network, however I think it may have been due to outdated firmware.


So the F16v2 doesn't output LOR protocol but rather DMX protocol with the correct LOR pins.

Yeah, first post!!!

Question, I saw on the forum where the price-point was projected to be $200-$210.  As we're getting close to the highly anticipated presale release date, can you confirm those numbers? 

<---- NOOB wanting to start out with a board the can run my whole first year show (from FPP), then still be G2G as part of my system going forward without being dated.  It seems right now that you guys have the best thing going here!

I should note, I used a pickit2 and v2.61 software for the falcon fw flash.   It complains about the file, but the flash still writes and verifies fine, didn't have a checksum, so just went for it and it worked.


I've been wanting to try this on a Zeus v1 and Zeus v2 next, just to see if it works.  I've heard it does.

Falcon Player Plugins / Twilio Users
« Last post by Bshaver on January 17, 2017, 01:15:48 PM »
Hello Everyone!


I hope that the Twilio plugin served you well in 2016.


We hope to make it even better in 2017. That said, please comment here on some features / enhancements that you would like to see for it or uses in 2017!


We have a short list underway and will share that with the group as time permits. Still recovering from 2016 show. Our show is still running until this weekend.


I would appreciate if you all would share your information with me and I could contact you directly about use cases you used for Twilio. What worked, what you saw in your experience.


A lot of you installed it with no problem. Some installed and ran into some gaps, etc.


Please PM me this information:
Your Name :)
Your email address
Your Twilio Number you used
Your best contact number to be reached at.


I think the Twilio platform performed to our expectations and I want to work with Twilio to make it even better for the shows to come!


Thanks everyone.


Ben

Chris; you might look at www.xlights.org to see the link to the  rgb controllers. This shows a comparison between the current controllers people use (E682, Falcon F16, alphapix, pixlite,picon,.etc.)


Ill post the link here

How does the F16 get it's "signal" from the Pi?


DLA
Computer sent data via E1.31 into the EtherDongle. EtherDongle sent data out ports via Pixelnet (You can drive 300') to SSC receivers, they changed data to spi to drive pixels


Everyone Else
Computer (Laptop, Raspberry Pi, BBB) sends data to a controller. Controllers (Falcon F16, AlphaPix, Pixlite, HinksPix,Pixcon) receive E1.31 and send out SPI data (You can drive 40').
