Just a quick question with fpd
« on: December 12, 2015, 08:13:24 AM »
Following this post :http://falconchristmas.com/forum/index.php/topic,3411.0.html  I can use the fpd to program  f16 , f8, ect. I have been using dongle flashed with pixelnet and etd. I have a few more things to hook up but most of the boards are programmed the way I need  but a couple are not. With the individual  board Ids, I should be able to hook up the boards out in the yard,  and as I add the last few things on the boards I then can program from computer in the house, without having to unhook them and bring them back in. Am I right in my thinking?  I do believe that is one of the great features of the  fpp - fpd - falcoln boards .

Yes you have hit one of the great features.  I recently used it fix a color issue and did not have to disconnect anything.  Just be carefull with the "program all sscs" check box.  A year ago by display was hooked up , but I was in the basement using a second ETD to do some configuring and reconfigured all my SSCs.  Here is another great feature - took my laptop and spare etd to the front porch where the active hub was and unplugged all 14 connections, put them back one at a time and reconfigure each one.  The great feature was the file that saved all the settings.  I did not have to go look up all the settings in my paper "show bible".

Great !!!!I thought I could but I better ask first instead of unhooking and then hooking it all back up again. What a great time saver feature Dave and/or falcoln crew came up with  ;) Thanks for the ssc tip Jim , That had slipped my mind whats left of it right now lol.

ETD = etherdongle from Lynx.  It is an e1.31 pixelnet driver.
