F48 not visible in FPP MultiSync

I am having an issue with an F48 I purchased this year to expand my show. It's on the network and accessible via the web GUI but it will not show up in the Falcon Player FPP Multi Sync table. I've tried changing IP address, rebooting equipment, changing the ethernet port on the F48 and still get nothing.

Anyone had any issues like this or have any ideas on how to fix?

FPP v.4.6.1
(1) F4v3
(1) F48 v1.02
(1) F48v4 (Problem child)

Thanks in advance!


You'll have to upgrade to the latest FPP for that.


I thought that may have something to do with it. I was going to try that next but couldn't find my micro SD adapter. I'll pick one up and try it out today.



Turns out I was wrong it's NOT an F48v4 is a F48 v1.03 giving me issues.

No luck anyhow...updated to FPP 5.3 and all controllers to 2.59.

Any other suggestions?


What host name did you give it?  Make sure that it is unique and has NO special characters in the name.



So I switched the IP Addresses between F481 & F482 and it connected to MultiSync, but now the one that was connecting no longer is. 

Could it be that one controller isn't capable of connecting to ALL of these controllers? I'm grasping for straws here, about to buy a Pi 4 and see if that does anything for me.


What are the IP addresses of the two F48's?


Why are you trying to get them to appear in the multisync page?  I don't think F48(v3's) will ever show?


IP's are & .74

@darylc - Correct me if i am wrong, i thought this is how the FPP associated the controllers, am I missing something? I tried creating a show using both F48's and only one works, the one associated in the multisync page.

Is there another way to do this?


It depends on how you are using them.  If you are sending data to them from the Pi, then there is no need for Multi Sync.  You just define outputs to them on the E1.31 outputs page with the universes that contain the channels for those controllers.


Multisync basically is a command station for remote FPP units.  I would not consider the V4 to be an FPP device.
