Red is Green and Green is Blue and Blue is Red......

Hi all, I am getting the hang of things.  I received 17 strings of 100 pixels from Ray Wu.  I have them plugged into my K16A-B with my BBB.

I created a simple sequence and noticed the colors on my pixels do not align with what I sequenced in XLights.  

When it should be red, I am seeing Green
When it should be Green, I am seeing Blue
When it should be Blue, I am seeing Red
When it should be yellow, I am seeing close to white
When it should be magenta/purple, I am seeing yellow
When it should be a specific color blue I asked for, I am seeing purple

Any ideas on what's going on?

Thanks in advance..

That is somewhat common... especially if you are using ribbon strips.  Just go into xlights and change the color order.  Maybe GBR instead of RGB

For me, I always leave xlights as RGB and change the color order in the controllers.  YMMV  I just like the consistency of having all my lights the same in xlights itself.  That may presnt a problem if you are configuring your controller from xlights, but I have not experienced that issue.

Like Jim, I have always set the color order in the controller.  With xLights setting everything (if you use that function), it works as well.  Haven't tried multiple different color orders on the same output though.  Anyone else?

I have and it works fine if your controller allows you to do that but then you can't use X:ights to configure the controllers without making a lot of changes after to set up sub strings and change color orders where required.

I also leave the color order RGB in the software, make any color order changes in the controller.

With virtual strings you can set different color orders on one output.  It works fine.

There would be pros and cons to both methods.   

You would be less likely to run into xlights auto-configure issues, if you change the color order in xlights.  However, you would also need to recompile all the sequences after a color change, to apply the new order.  If you are manually configuring your controllers and have a lot of sequences, it would probably make sense to continue to changing at the controller level.

Not an issue for me since I don't use xLights...

:)  A lot of things I miss about LOR!  LOR is a symphony, compared to Xlights being a rock show.  LOR seems to do a nicer job with slower more traditional songs.   It would be nice if FPP could play a native LOR sequence and be able to use both in a show.

Supposedly LOR can now export FSEQ files:

Not sure if anyone has actually tried it or how well it works or anything.

Well, dang.  I had missed that in the release notes.  Just tried it with one of my sequences that I have on the work computer and it does produce a .fseq file - DAMN it's huge!  I assume that it did not know what to do with the LOR network stuff.  I will do some playing around with that over the weekend...

I had noticed the fseq export in the release notes, but assumed it was incompatible since no one was talking about it.  You need S6 to be able to do it, and I did not buy the upgrade.

Jim, You will have to PM me and let me know how it works out for you!

k6ccc

Jon, at this point it will just be playing with it.  Because of other reasons, I can't run my Christmas show from FPP - even if I moved the two LOR networks to E1.31.

I'll let you know...

No worries or expectations.  If you think about it, I would be curious what you found out. 

Thanks!
