Falcon Player (FPP) / Re: Install FPP on a non Raspberry Pi board
« Last post by cpwtech on Today at 04:19:45 AM »
I am using Armbian not Raspbian.  and then run the install script.  Now if you want to go back to FPP 1.8, etc you will have to do a little source code editing.

Your start channel on the LED Panels page needs to match the start channel defined in the E1.31 page would be my guess.

I changed it accordingly to no avail

Don't try to relate one to the other.  These are all different information FPP uses to output the proper data.

Arrows tell FPP the TOP of the Panel.  and yes, Arrows can point down - Match P10 Arrow as installed.

O' & P's Tells FPP how panels are arranged, and cabled....and these are based on looking at the FRONT or your assembly.
- so if O1-P1 is on the bottom left when you are inserting the cabling, set FPP o1-p1 in the Bottom Right.

Top Left (xlights) or Bottom Left (vixen) tell FPP how the Sequencer delivers the data. Not where the cable enters.

O1-P1 doesn't mean it is the first incoming panel. O1-P1 can be the center row.  FPP determines the entry point based on the combination of the 3 entries.

The FPP folder may be in a different directory depending an what version you are running. Make sure your FPP folder is under opt.

Trying to wrap my head around all of this. So I created a horizontal 4x1 matrix and set it up like the guide on another board.

With xLights set up with a horizontal model like:

and FPP setup like this with the cable connected to the octoscroller on the P-1 (right-hand side of the matrix looking at the pixels from the front) side:

I get a good display on the panels.

If I change the configuration to a 1x2 (lopping off 2 panels and rotating 90-degrees clockwise), I set up a new model that is:

FPP set like (octoscroller connected to the bottom panel). The expectation is that P-1 is the panel connected to the octoscroller:

The output I want is

But in order to get that, I have to swap P-1 & P-2.

Can someone explain why this is the case? Are the rules different for vertical matrices or do I have something set incorrectly?

I'm using a BBB/Octoscroller with Dan's bbb-fpp-20170814 image.

Looking at the dimensions of this PS and the Flat Rate boxes, I think the 11" x 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Medium Flat Rate Box will fit 5 fairly nicely.  I don't believe you will get many more in a Large Flat Rate Box.  If that is so, I would like 5 of them.  Let me know what you find out when you actually try to fit them in the various boxes.

118 of them! In the next few weeks I will be pulling them from the cabinets. There are also muffin fans and wiring harness I'll be pulling.
F16v2 Pixel Controller / Re: Battery Power?
« Last post by bbayjohn on August 22, 2017, 07:09:19 PM »
I have set up a small show off a car battery. It was  few years ago now. We were camping at an envent that had a prize for best lit campsite. I ran my laptop, 12 strips (matrix), 16 neonflex strips (face) 4x 10w floods & small usb speakers. We won the the event. I used a cheap power inverter to go from dc>ac. But these days you can use a smaller 5v backup power supply, with your wireless controller and place your model anywhere, cord free, with no trip hazzards.
