F16V3 Pixel Controller / Re: Which Falcon would be best for me?

I like the differential expansion where its easy to run a cat-5 across the lawn or along a roofline.  But one other thing to consider is if you have to cross driveways with cables.

I have a turnaround driveway which breaks my display area into multiple sections separated by driveway.   I didn't want to run data cables across any driveways, so each section gets its own controller which receives data  via WiFi (I use FPP remote sync).   

Not knocking differential expansion board, just saying there are various factors that influence which way to go.  I will eventually end up with a mix of both.
So this is a custom Ethernet, IP setup? I was reading over the LISN information, and could this be a closed distributed IP network for just Matrixes? As you mention the USB/Ethernet 100MB I have about a dozen of those laying around. I have one currently on my main master PI to bridge between my home network and show network.

I have a similar setup for indoor lighting that my wife likes to change for different holidays.    My wife is total computer novice but I set up the BigButtons plugin on the FPP and then bookmarked it on the home screen of her iPhone.   Super easy and she loves it.   

Instead of turning the power on and off, I leave the FPP power on all the time.  I have a sequence that is just an "all off" effect and assigned that to one of the big buttons. (also have a similar one for "all on white").   So I have big buttons for different holidays and then an ALL ON WHITE and an ALL OFF button.  No need for wife to shutdown FPP

Hmm. Could not get that to work.. but reverted to the original setup and am  even getting the 'queued.'' response that I received previously

I also cant see anything in the twilio logs indicating that the HTTP event was sent .

have attached the log file if it will help

Only the the SEND immediate mode is supported at this time while it is in transition to 2017 configuration and code.

What does that mean. You cannot use the queued message mode with the current Twilio plugin. I'm sorry - it is broken at this time. To use the Immediate mode, you need the message queue and and Matrix Message plugins installed on the remote BBB that has the panels. Then configure the matrix message plugin accordingly and put in the IP address of the remote BBB instance in the Main Twilio plugin. Save and use.

Any further questions, PM me and we can sort this in a Team Viewer session. Please let me know what times work best for you - im in mountain timezone (denver)

The caps sensitivity should not really be an issue. However; there are other projectors that have similar codes.

I will work on getting this added.

I think - we may have uncovered something that we should display the codes in another screen for a given projector to be checked against the documents. And, also, the possibility of users just adding their own codes!

The random stopping sounds like it's the FPPD STOP issue that's been noted, and being worked on.

yep I put the big buttons and shortcut on her phone! I put the FPP and F16v2 on a power strip, So it's one switch to turn on and off the FPP and F16v2 to make easy. The problem I see is shutting down the FPP. If she just turns off FPP with switch instead of shut down command. I have had problems with booting and had to re-image FPP several times.

I have made a 30 second animation FSEQ file and loaded to FPP. I have her click on repeat, but after about 2hrs is stops. I am guessing there is a limit on how many repeats and stop playing the show.
