FPP/Pi/Colorlight Help

I need some help setting up my FPP 6.0, colorlight, with xlights

It's been a few years since I've toyed around with my lights and I am trying to catch back up.

I have a pi 3 b+ with FPP 6.x and a colorlight card. Things seem to check out OK here. The test patterns work.

I'm running into an issue getting Xlights sequences to run. I pulled up an old sequence from years ok an ran it hardwired across the network and uploaded it to FPP and got all kinds of weirdness. It was pixelated played upside etc even though the test patterns showed the correct output pattern numbers for the panels. Panel 1 was in the correct position on port 1 in row 1 etc.

I decided to just start a new sequence with just letters and couldn't get it to run over the network. I uploaded it to FPP manually and it didn't output at all. Xlights is able to discover FPP but and upload sequences to it just not display anything on it.

FPP is setup as a player

Any help out there? :-)


Not sure what exactly fixed it but the last step one thing I did notice is every time I upload from Xlights it disables the LED panels in FPP. Not sure if I have a setting wrong in Xlights or what

Why not show a screenshot of those settings?

Posting links are not the best method, Thanks for posting a screenshot! 
Uncheck the Auto Upload Configuration.
