I can do that. So basically don't install any packages once you have the base image? Just as a general maintenance thing, should I avoid apt updates too, and just rely on falconpi updates?
New Hardware Projects / RGB Amplifier
« Last post by bowhunter3125 on March 20, 2017, 09:40:24 PM »
Not happy with the Amplifiers currently on the market. I run around 1500 dumb nodes in my show and last year i went through a lot of the amplifiers you can get from ebay and amazon. Issue i have seen with them through testing is they do not like to be turned off and on a lot. Tunr them on and leave them on they are ok, but not for what we do. SO last year i started on designing a new amplifier, one that will work for what we do. This will fit inside a TA 200 enclosure. I am currently looking at using either a LM324 or an OP482 operational amplifier and 6 or 10 amp mosfets. I am unsure why there is such a huge price difference between them. I dont quit understand how to read data sheets, but another designer suggested the OP482.

I dont think there will be a very high demand for these, most folks use mainly smart pixels for their shows, i use smart for my tree and matrix, but everything else is dumb nodes. Was hoping for some input on my design from you smart designers out there. I did not include the 47 ohm or 10k ohm resistors between the OP Amplifier and the Mosfets on my design, they will included in the final PCB drawing. I also have plans to include an LED to show it is getting power. I am up in the air about including a fuse as all my power from the PSU's runs through a fused distro board.

Reinstall the SD image?  Who knows what the other dependency files were installed when you added that package.

I ran apt-get update and added openssl. Now I get an error page when I try to go to the ssl page. Any suggestions on fixing?

I think you could also run it via the eventScript wrapper which sets the path for you, but either way you are giving the full path to a script.
BeagleBone Black Controllers / Re: F4B/F16B and DMX working!
« Last post by JonB256 on March 20, 2017, 07:20:52 PM »
Great troubleshooting. I'll probably solder a wire on the back and glue it down. I have several F4Bs that I might want to use for DMX.

update - might be tough on the back. My F4B boards have solder points on top instead of the header block your picture shows for Pin 25.
On top might be easier.
Showing Off / Re: RGB Yard Borders
« Last post by bowhunter3125 on March 20, 2017, 05:44:24 PM »
Bump this subject back up. I am looking at doing a Yard border around my flower beds. I want to keep these lights up year round, does anyone know how well these lights from Ray Wu look lite up and night with say 6" spacing? Will more then likely use 3/4" or 1" grey conduit, like the fence rails but i have not a single straight line on my beds. I tried looking for the large C9 covers like Captain used but couldn't find them.
Falcon Player (FPP) / Re: GPIO trigger for 2 elements / models?
« Last post by David_AVD on March 20, 2017, 03:26:03 PM »
That caught me up too.  The GPIO triggers an event, which starts a playlist that contains one or more sequences.  Once I knew that the GPIO triggers were easy to setup.

Ah, of course.  It's a path issue?  I'll try that.
