Falcon Player (FPP) / Re: UDP error
Last post by Poporacer - July 14, 2024, 07:54:20 PM
You have your Player in the Controllers page. IF your Player is not connected directly to pixels or a matrix, then it doesn't need to be in the Controllers page of xLights.
Your Player Active state needs to be set to xLights Only if it is also a Controller. 
If your Player is not a Controller, then set the Model variant to Player only.
If any of your controllers are FPP based, like Kulp controllers, then you might want to consider using the MultiSync mode, it is way more efficient. And if you decide to go that route, all MultiSync remotes should have the Active state set to xLights only as well.

Was messing around and had UDP set to all when I did FPP connect. Now I'm getting this error,how do I fix it? Things were fine until then.

I should also mention that I have to reboot once this happens in order to be able to start a playlist again.

Falcon Player (FPP) / Audio Issue with Pi Zero 2 W
Last post by robbiet - July 14, 2024, 11:48:16 AM
Hi All.  I am running FPP 7.5 on a Pi Zero 2 W with a 64GB SD card and the new Kulp K2-Pi0 cape installed.  I'm running a basic media only single track playlist on repeat but the playlist is failing to load after a couple of loops.  Here is what I am seeing in the FPPD logs.  The track is a 4 minute MP3.  Any advice?  Is this a bug or do I need to change a setting?

Falcon Player (FPP) / Re: USB (and other) issues on ...
Last post by zaicik - July 14, 2024, 04:20:33 AM
Quick update:

Digging further, I noticed that the USB driver on my Rasbian was the dwc_otg, while the FPP one was dwc2

A little bit of Googling and fumbling later (actually a medium-sized bit... I'm fairly new to this): 
  • I edited /boot/config.txt
  • Looked for the line dtoverlay=dwc2 
  • Replaced it with dtoverlay=dwc_otg


=> USB devices (sound, mass storage) are now detected when plugged in and work correctly
=> Doesn't seem to have introduced any adverse side effects... for me (please note I'm just starting and at this point I have a very simple configuration with no DMX, Midi, etc.)


Also, not a problem for me, but please note that it didn't solve the USB tethering issue.

Last post by tbone321 - July 13, 2024, 08:03:14 PM
If you are trying to use the DPIPixels protocol to either allow the PI to process audio without a sound card or to get more than 2 output ports then yes, you will need to license the cap.  This I believe started in version 7.  As Jim has asked, what cap are you using?

Falcon Player (FPP) / USB (and other) issues on Pi Z...
Last post by zaicik - July 13, 2024, 10:58:55 AM
USB port on my Pi Zero 2W is not working properly.

Here's a list of symptoms I compiled and things I've tried:

1/ plugged in various USB drives directly
=> they don't show up in fpp (i.e. in FPP Backup, even after clicking refresh)
=> they don't show up in the os (lsusb -t returns a single line: Bus 01.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=dwc2/1p, 480M)

1b/ plugged in various USB drives through a USB hub, and plugged in an sd card reader => same results

2/ plugged in various USB audio interfaces
=> they don't show up in FPP (Settings/Audio-Video only list "Dummy") (lsusb -t returns the same result, and aplay -l returns: card 0: Dummy [Dummy], device 0: Dummy PCM [Dummy PCM]) *more on that later

3/ plugged an usb-usb cable to link-up with a Pico or a NodeMCU
=> no luck either (ttyACM0 doesn't magically appear)

4/ USB Tethering doesn't work (tested with a macbook, an iPad and a PC)


FURTHER INFORMATION:
All this is on FPP v7.5.
I tried with 2 different Pi Zero 2W, with and without a HAT attached.
The USB port has no physical issues (all those things above work perfectly well with a Raspbian sd-card inserted)

Out of curiosity and seeking to trace the source of the issue, I tried older builds and found out that USB tethering works on my Zero 2Ws with FPP v5.5 and doesn't with v6.3 (i didn't try all intermediates, but I'm guessing the jump to 6.0 is when it happened)


ONE LAST THING (cf my * early, and then I'm done for today):
with v7.5: "Dummy" is the only audio output device available (on a bare install, no HAT, no strings configured)
with v5.5: two devices were available (forgot the names but one was for audio over hdmi)

Guidance into solving these issues would be greatly appreciated <3

Quote from: breese on July 13, 2024, 05:49:26 AMMy understanding of this:
Once you do a Full Render, save, just clicking on an effect should not cause the effect or sequence to re-render unless something changed.
Nope.  Not how it works at all.  Whenever you click on an effect, it triggers a render.   Always.

QuoteIs that not what the Render Cache is all about?
Not at all.   The Render Cache has absolutely nothing to do with this scenario at all.   The Render Cache stores results of individual effects, not everything blended together with the layers and such.
