BeagleBone Black Controllers / Re: K16a-b FPP setup
Last post by dkulp - Today at 06:15:18 AM
Uhmmm... It's saying F16-B which is not a K16.   It sounds like the eeprom didn't get programmed correctly or isn't being detected.   Can you go to the Help -> Troubleshooting and scroll to the "FPP Cape Detect Log" section and let me know what it says.

Are you using pigtails? Is it possible that they are in the wrong port? Can you take a plain string of pixels and connect them to port 1?
If you jump in Zoom Room, we can help you troubleshoot.

Yes, I'm selecting the enable test mode checkbox.


As an example, this is actually outputting to PT1 instead of PT16 on the controller.

Maybe an oversight, but did you Enable the test mode? And are your overlay pixel models created correctly? Can you post a screenshot of that page?

Yes, the pixels are connected as shown in your pic.

I'm testing from the Display Testing page.

Falcon Player (FPP) / OrangePi 3 LTS wifi
Last post by ctmal - September 25, 2022, 05:27:37 PM
Good evening, I'm a newbie to FPP and I'm hoping to get it working to run my display this year.  I'm 100% Renard so, in light of the issues getting Raspberry Pi's, I figured an Orange Pi 3 LTS should work for my needs.

I'm able to get FPP up and running using the documentation(the work put in to the documentation is very impressive btw), but I can't seem to get wireless running after installing FPP.

My knowledge of Linux is serious lacking but here's where I stand at this point.
After I install Arbian, I'm able to connect using ssh, install network manager, and I can connect to my wifi.
After installing FPP, if I log into the console, I can install network manager but at this point I can no longer see any SSID's.  

So, I have read that there are wifi issues with the OrangePi 3 LTS but since I can connect in Arbian, I'm guessing those issues have been resolved.  

I'm also assuming I'm doing something wrong...especially by trying to use network manager to connect to wifi, but as I said, I'm a linux rookie so at this point its the only way I know.

Any thoughts?
Thanks,
Chris

Also, I apologize for such a long post as a first post.  Normally I hate doing that.

Usually you shouldn't have to enter the port configurations manually, but for testing, it might make sense.

Can you post a screenshot of how you are testing, there are at least 3 ways that you could be testing.

Are you 100% certain you have the pixels connected to the port you think they should be?
Here are the port #s

BeagleBone Black Controllers / K16a-b FPP setup
Last post by Dunkelzahn - September 25, 2022, 04:51:11 PM
It's my first time setting up a K16a-b in FPP (5.5) and it's not acting as I expect when I'm testing. 

I configured the outputs (see attachment) and then connected pixels to each output. When I go to channel testing and test 1 model at a time the pixels connected to the corresponding port don't light up but pixels from another port light up.

 
PT#Model Name
1PT16
2PT15
3PT14
4PT13
5PT12
6PT11
7PT10
8PT9
9nothing
10nothing
11PT6
12nothing
13PT5
14nothing
15nothing
16PT4


Am I missing the obvious and setting FPP incorrectly? Also, the Test, Enter, Up, Down and Back buttons don't change anything on the oled. 

Any help would be appreciated.

It is nearly October and I have not received these yet. I have emailed Rez twice and have not heard back. I am guessing the free shipping included a slow boat from the UK.

That video might be the problem? LOL J/K

I agree, more information (including screenshots) would help out.
