I am shipping 14 Octoscroller boards today for those that participated in the Neo beta.

Here is the list of users I am shipping to.

J. Plak
T. Willows
P. Delaney
S. Baker
B. Shaver
M. Schmenk
T. Hight
T. Blue
S. Gase
B. Vander Ploeg
N. Richards
D. Shaughnessy
R. Allison
J. Evans

I am shipping MyKroFts and the Captains when I ship some other stuff to them in a week or so.

J Back's has been shipped already.

I think that takes care of the beta. I will be placing Octoscrollers boards in store within a week.

Whoo Hoo, my paypal is burning up my pocket for the Octoscaller so I can really check out the panels and do some work with them in LSP.  Curious to see if it scales better with 32 or more vertically instead of the 10 I had last year.

I should have the config UI committed to master tonight as well.  The same UI will work for the BBB with Octoscroller and Pi using the RGBMatrix channel output.  Once I do commit this old configs won't be used because the updated code uses the new JSON config file format.  I will start a new thread in the FPP forum to field questions about the new (temporary) UI for configuring the panel layout.

I am so looking forward to receiving the octoscroller and installing the new UI to play with. I have 24 panels and still not sure what layout I will be using. going to be fun seeing that works best.

It seems I forgot to get the 2x25 headers for Octoscroller.

They can be bought here. Just cut to size.

Even though it states 18 days minimum to ship that has not been my experience with this vendor. 1.5 -2.0 weeks usually.

I can reimburse you the 1.50 if you want it. :)

If you need them quicker this vendor is in US

Got my board today also.  Dave, I already have the 2x40 header so you can consider my order completed, no reimbursement needed.  Thank you for all you do for the community.

Is this the same as https://oshpark.com/shared_projects/63dzPc8l ?
Otherwise where can I order one from?  I ordered everything else I needed but I forgot to order the BBB and cape which I only just worked out now I'm building the display.
