olsen 595
« on: December 04, 2017, 05:53:56 PM »
Looking to get back into lights after taking a few years off. My old set up is the olsen 595 using vixen 2.  Id like to start upgrading to pixels while still using my old hardware for some elements.  What are my options if I purchase a f16v3 for the pixels. Id like to use a pi as well. Thanks for the input.

FPP has a 595 output, you should be able to attach your 595 to the Pi's GPIO header and drive lights for on/off. At the same time, you can setup E1.31 and drive the F16v3 for pixels.
