We will focus on the following items this month:
[/size]
[/size]1) General setup design, networking assistance, layout, etc
[/size]2) Firmware update of Falcon boards (V2)- Please bring a windows laptop and MICRO USB cable for loading of the firmware and your boards. If you have them in cases with power supplies that would be beneficial
[/size]3) FPP Plugins (that I have authored and have used) assistance
[/size]
[/size]Also, others have brought items for sale: Some things that I'll be brining
[/size]
[/size]Extra FPP PIs. PI accessories
[/size]Networking equipment that I cannot use and should go to a good home
[/size]32" Monitor with HDMI and DVI and VGA input. It is 720p. It was used to sequence in previous years, this year we are going the projector route. So it is taking up space and should go to a good home!
[/size]
[/size]Please let us know if you can attend!
[/size]
[/size]Previously, we have brought in pizza, we can handle that too, please bring a few extra dollars to help if you would like to enjoy!

So, I am also bringing some DUMB RGB LOR controller. We will not be using it this year. I have a few strings of dumb RGB as well that I'll bring along with it. I tested it just tonight in making one of the new pipes for the arches light up. a Few PIs a few other stuff is coming along as well.

To everyone that attended the Colorado meet up. Great to meet you. If you have any questions please PM me here. I think we were successful in able to convert another 2 people over to FPP control this year! I'm looking forward to seeing what XmasLightGuy will make with the FPP instance and PWM for AC.


Thanks,
Ben

Glad I was able to make it to this one.
I'll have to take some time deciding on what controllers & such I'm gonna go with and such (looked around a bit last night & have some ideas)
Really not much more time left before its time to start putting up lights :lol:
