Renard SS24 and FPP fseq not playing
« on: September 16, 2018, 09:31:06 PM »
Good Evening All,

I am new to the FPP community but have been using renard devices with vixen 2.1 for several years now. I recently wanted to incorporate some projection into my Halloween show so I decided to look into FPP. I got FPP all loaded on my pi and now I trying to get everything all setup but running into some issues. I am using a usb rs232 to rs485 adapter. The pi recognizes the dongle from what I can tell with out issues. I setup my controller in the outputs as you can see in the attachment. After I setup my controller I went into the Display Testing / channel testing and all 24 channels turned on and off like I expected. Then I tried to move on to the a sequence. I created a generic 24 channel sequence in vixen 2.1 with some just some on/off triggers. I then converted it to a fseq file using xlights. The output did not have any errors during conversion. I continued an uploaded it to FPP. When I went to test it there was no output what so ever. It seems like there is a conversion issue or mapping problem since test my channel output with the channel testing page.

I appreciate any suggestions you guys may have. I am trying to get this going for my Halloween show that we start in 4 weeks.

Thank You,

I know this is well past Halloween but maybe this will get it going for you. I have the same set up, and working with a simple sequence although I am using xLights. My channel output set up is the same with the exception of the speed is 57600. this speed is what is recommended in the renard set up info on the other forum. I'm new to all this as well and I have been struggling to get the pi up. But with this set up my renard controller is running my sequence.
