Not sure if onboard is the correct way to describe this, but best I could think of.  When I start working in xlights it wants me to configure e131 or some other usb device.  With things like the RPIWS281X on the pi using pins of the pi or something like F4-B do I just set things up on e131 in xlights and then fpp knows that channels 1-450 aren't really e131, but are RPIWS281X because that is what I have configured for channels 1-450 in my channeloutputs?

Thanks for the help,


Yes.  If you are only using xLights to sequence and only playing back in FPP then you can tell xLights that all your outputs are e1.31 and configure the true output types in FPP.

Regarding the rpiws281x spexifically, I don't know that anyone has that working so it may be commented out in the next release.  I haven't been able to get it to work reliably and I have not received any positive reports from others.   Driving ws281x from the BBB is working great with the F4-B and F16-B though.  I have started working on the SD and eMMC images for the BBB and would like to have beta images for FPP v1.5 out in the next month or so.
