My Pi 4 remote running fresh flashed FPP 7.3 then restored with last year's FPP backup is showing "could not create output type bbb48string'. It runs no pixels, no virtual matrix, just mp4 video. No output ports running, and no ~/media/config/co-bbbStrings.json. Welcome any suggestions for a fix.

Thanks

I think this is from a bad push from xLights.  It is possibly in ~/media/config/co-pixelStrings.json which you could remove if you don't have any pixels attached.

Hmm, that file doesn't exist either.

Run "grep -i bbb48 /home/fpp/media/config/*.json"

It might have made its way into the co-universes.json file, but the above grep will find it.

So grep couldn't find anything, I restarted FPPD (something I've done quite a lot of), now the message goes away today. Weird. I am however having this now, and no fseq sequences on this Pi.

That message will display if the remote doesn't have the fseq file.  If you don't want it there, then you can ignore it.  Or you could load the .fseq and it would play but wouldn't do anything since there aren't any channel outputs configured.
