UPDATE:  Mr. Kulp is trying to help me....updated FPP to V7.5-4.  I was on V7.5.  That fixed the issue with port 18, but ports 17, 21, 25 and 29 remain dead.  When pixels are plugged into those ports and a sequence is playing, data led's #2, 3 and 4 are lit up.  Data led #1 is not lit.  I also flashed the eeprom (I was on V2.0 - reflashed it with V2.0), but that didnt seem to do anything.  Almost there.

What happens if you run the "Overlay Model Fill" FPP Command manually on that model?  The channel tester is testing channels directly, but the plugin is using the FPP Command to turn on the model and fill the model with a color.  I'm not seeing how the plugin could be broken unless the command wasn't working for some reason.  Do you perhaps have two pixel overlay models with the same name?

Quote from: CaptainMurdoch on April 02, 2024, 04:09:07 PMThe HA plugin uses the "Overlay Model Fill" FPP Commands to fill the model with color so it should work for all pixels.  I just tested on my dev system running docker and latest FPP master code and it worked correctly.

You can get more debug logs out of the plugin by setting the 'plugin' log level to 'Excessive'.

Your MQTT values match mine, here is an example of what I see when HA turns the light on/off and changes colors:

falcon/player/fpp-dev/ha/light/LEDPanels/cmd {"state":"ON"}

falcon/player/fpp-dev/ha/light/LEDPanels/cmd {"state":"ON","color":{"r":255,"g":158,"b":242}}
falcon/player/fpp-dev/ha/light/LEDPanels/state {"brightness":240,"color":{"b":241,"g":157,"r":255},"color_mode":"rgb","effect":"","state":"ON"}

falcon/player/fpp-dev/ha/light/LEDPanels/cmd {"state":"OFF"}

Here's my log at excessive :

This is the flake when channel testing.

Hmm as i try different colors values for the prop from HA the few red pixel lit up will fade in and out like they are some how the sub color RGB values being sent to FPP but being rendered as red pixels instead of a color wash over the full model. 

So pixel each individually respond (in red only) to the r,g,b values as:

(Pixel number - color vale controlling it)
4,5 - red
46 -  green
1,47 (and a few more) - blue

Bug?

It could be a bad board or it could be that the configuration is incorrect.  Try setting the board ID to zero and set the type to standard in the Kulp configuration.  This is the most basic configuration and should work.  Unlike the Falcon controllers, the Kulp controllers do not send any data to the remotes unless a show is playing which makes troubleshooting a bit more difficult since the data lights don't just light up when the remote is plugged in.  If you identify the board as an intelligent board, then you also have to configure the Kulp controller to send the data that way so that it sends the data to the correct board and the configuration you are showing doesn't look kike that is how it is set up.

Falcon Player (FPP) / MQTT with Home Assistant, mode...
Last post by madsci1016 - April 02, 2024, 02:49:23 PM
I have FPP loaded with models of my props (just 5 snowflakes). Per model testing works fine, as in if i say test snowflake 1, just snowflake 1 lights up in entirety.

Got MQTT /HA plug installed, set it to push my 5 snowflakes. They were detected and added by Home Assistant. However when i click to turn on snowflake 1 in home assistant, a random 8 pixels light up red when the whole model should be white. And thats it.

Pixel controller is an pixelstick running old firmware if that matters, but again, test mode in FPP works correctly.

Json i see in MQTT is


I do get some log entries in FPP

I have not setup any effects (or "FPP Commands FOR HA LIGHT EFFECTS" as the GUI says) in FPP. Didn't think i'd need to for just on/off and color control.

Is this expected behavior and i missed something, or a bug?

OK, updated with new information:

Did some elimination style diagnosing.  Previously I was pretty much doing all my testing on port 17.  Now, the rx board rotary dial is set to "0".  All ports work with the following exceptions:  If lights are plugged into Ports 17, 21, 25 and 29, the lights do not work at all.  No data led lights up.  If plugged into port 18, all pixels will light up full white when I play the test sequence from FPP and stay lit full white even if I stop the sequence in the FPP player.  So I think at this point I may have a defective rx board?

Greetings All!

New here.  Been reading, watching and learning everything I can about this hobby for the past month and finally got to the point where I thought I was comfortable and understood the basics.  So last week I purchased my first controller, a K16A-B, an SRx1 V4.00 rx board all from Kulp Lights (which included an SD card with FPP V7.5 already installed) a string of 12V 50 pixels and a 12V power supply so I could test and play around in xLights and FPP to verify I did in fact understand the basics, before I purchase "everything else" I want/need for a Halloween/Christmas show.

Initial install, configuration of the K16 and FPP and setting up in xLights was flawless.  I created a simple sequence in xLights (just a single strand of 50 pixels with a red color chase), and uploaded through FPP connect.  Used the visualizer to assign the string to port 14.  Did all that stuff - and played the sequence through FPP and it worked perfectly.  No issues.  Then I tried the rx board.  Changed the output to port 17 in the visualizer, reuploaded the configuration - verified the settings in FPP.  Rendered the sequence again and reuploaded through FPP connect.  Tried playing the sequence again through FPP and I get nothing.  No data LED's on the rx board ever light up.  I tried a different cat5 cable, nothing.  I tried ports 21, 25, 29 (always changing configuration in the visualizer, reuploading) and always nothing.  I can press the test button on the RX board and I get output to the pixel string.  Just when I try to play a sequence, it is as if the K16 is not sending data to the rx board.  I have tried setting the rx board rotary dial to "A", tried "0" and tried "4".  I have tried setting it to Standard rx and Smart rx in the visualizer.  Nothing I do, no matter the configuration I try, the pixels will not light up if connected to the rx board.  Pixels will light up on any port on the K16 with no problem. See pics for some references.  Again, this is my first ever pixel controller, rx board and first go with xLights and FPP.  I thought I understood the basics but I guess not LOL!  I am at the end of my limited knowledge with the hardware and software and am seeking help.  Thanks in advance

Quote from: ScaryJerry on March 30, 2024, 04:51:46 PMHi, I'm trying to play video from a Pi V3 camera to an HDMI output.  Hours of forums and youtube without getting a result. I'll ship a free camera to anyone who can figure it out.  Thx

Can you check to see if you have any /dev/video* or /dev/v4l* device entries?

"ls -al /dev/video* /dev/v4l*"

There is a chance the camera is coming up as /dev/v4l* instead of /dev/video* according to some pages I have looked at.
