I built out my master and remote from images and now when I start any play list it shows stopping gracefully when the first entry in the play list runs...

Your time shows it's after 11pm. What time is your schedule set to run as it may be doing the right thing according to the time it's seeing.

2.3 seems to be working fine for my purposes.
Sure would be nice if a Backup and Restore would actually backup and restore my configuration (never has).  A few things get saved, but most of my config requires that I manually rebuild it every time I re-image...

Can't fix a bug we don't know about. What parts don't get restored? When restoring as you selecting "All" or choosing individual sections as needed?
Will need a copy of the backup too. If you want to create a issue on Github or a separate thread here so we don't pollute this thread.

I did test it quite thoroughly when it was rebuilt and have done a few "from scratch" restore since 2.0 and it's been fine.

Ill start a new thread when I get onto a computer, but its been reported before.     Short version is I save with all, and networking, and E1.31 (at least) dont get restored.  This time my P5 & P10 panel configurations did restore (didnt last couple times).

I'm noticing that I'm not able to upgrade from 2.1 to 2.3 through wlan.


I've imaged two separate uSD cards, configured through eth0 (wired), then have had them both in wireless mode (master/remote).  However, neither of them were able to upgrade to 2.3 in wireless.  I connected back to eth0, and both upgraded as expected.


Was I missing something, or is this expected?

The scheduled run was completed at 10:30pm and I was trying to just manually run the Christmas playlist. The scheduler should not have been affecting a manual playlist I would think...
This morning I played the same list and it did not try to stop the playlist.

Disregard my previous:  I refreshed my page, clicked the upgrade button again, and 2.3 loaded without any more issues.  Chalk this up to operator error.
As always, I'm still checking my end for operator error, but when I click the upgrade button on the green bar, I get another screen with the features & instructions.  If I click the upgrade button on that screen, I get the Mac colored 'wheel' forever but nothing appears to happen.  I let it spin for at least 30 minutes, but no update and no alerts.  I don't need it, and am happy with 2.1, just thought I would bring this to your attention.  I've tried a couple different combinations, but get the same result (nothing happens)

I had the same experience with the spinning circle after clicking upgrade.   After waiting a bit and refreshing, it did upgrade to 2.3 (from 2.1). 


My current issue is on a Pi with a matrix adapter with 2.3 the panel seems to start on channel 1 vs what's configured in the LED Panel configuration (22873).   Worked fine on 2.1 (didn't try on 2.2)

How long did you wait?  I gave it about 20 minutes, then just reloaded the page and it was still at 2.1.

Upgraded to 2.3 and now my Pi3 in remote mode running my projector stops after going through the play list one time. (FPPD Stopped) Push everything back to 2.2  all working fine again. I thought

still stopping but after 3 hours of running.

Not a single issue with my BBB

5-10 minutes, tops.  When I refreshed the page they were at 2.3 but FPPD was stooped but started no problem.  The process was identical on 2 Pi's and 4 Beagles.

I found that by putting 1 or 2 seconds delay between the videos that FPPD stopped crashing. So far my videos have been playing for 3 hours with no FPD crashes.

I am running 2.3 from a fresh build on 1 master and 3 remotes. I was having the problem of FPPD stopping on a playlist of videos. I found that by putting 1 or 2 seconds delay between the videos that FPPD stopped crashing. So far my videos have been playing for 3 hours with no FPD crashes.

Loaded 2.3 on BBB now no WiFi. The IP will ping in the network GUI but will not show up when I input address into Chrome. Any ideas?
