Unfortunately I wouldn't need much, only need 1 or two more (so I can have a spare)

I thought there would be more interest in a group buy but I guess I was wrong.  I need a few more myself.  I spent a few days running my komblinkin (5v) from a 12v F16v1 port and it works perfectly.  I used a 10cent 5v voltage regulator to drop it down while still powering the rest of the board 12v.  That said, I am being told a buck convertor is the best way to do it but they are really expensive compared to the regulator...  90cents.   ;D 

I should point out that Alan's site prices are AUS$ NOT US.  I have deliberately stayed away from throwing prices out for a GB but I will throw caution in the wind in an effort to stir up interest for group buy.   ::)  I would estimate if a GB of 50 controllers were met these things could potentially be under $20 a piece but no promises.  If you are remotely interested, just post and tell me how many.  Then if we hit 50, we will do our due diligence and get pricing/formal GB.  Maybe I should start a new thread?

Thanks Chris

Another reason to impatiently await V2.0   ;D

The RTC isn't showing up in the i2c output.

Can you post some high resolution pictures of the top and bottom of the PiCap?

Where did you get the board from, can you take a picture?  If is it one of the ones I uploaded to oshpark a couple years ago, that is the 'Classic' pinout.  If you got it off of hzeller's github page in the past 6-12 months then it is probably the new pinout which is supported in FPP v1.8 and called 'Standard' pinout in v1.9.

FPP v2.0 will have the ability to adjust the volume level in a playlist, so you could adjust the volume down before some songs and up before others.  With FPP v1.x, you can do this via event scripts called via a playlist.

+1 on Mp3Gain. Super easy to use, especially compared to guessing with Audacity

There is divided opinion about using a single wire of the data pair versus using both wires.

I'm of the single wire mind. Someone with a data probe could definitively answer that question.

Also, in your drawing, I don't see a black line (-5vdc) going between the two 5vdc power supplies. That is helpful/required to keep Data voltage stable.

A uAmp is better than a null pixel because it uses a better driver with higher slew rates to give a better output waveform.
But, null pixels are perhaps easier to find. Many controllers will let you treat a "regular pixel" as a null pixel.

Alternatives are:

Use shielded twisted pair cable to reduce capacitive loss to ground (could be a single pair or CAT5's four pairs)
Use Coax cable (great distance but not cheap per foot - you might have some lying around, though)
Get a Falcon F16v2 and use a Differential setup for that long distance stuff (you want one, anyway, right? :) )
