BeagleBone Black Controllers / Re: Intro to the Octoscroller
Last post by dkulp - Today at 04:41:13 AM
Generally "Up To" the 1:16 scan rates.   There are 1:32 scan (64 pixel tall) panels that cannot be supported as there isn't a 5th address line.

Quote from: DesignTagline on Today at 12:32:34 AMHello, it doesn't have a UI or if it doesn't I can't find it (and it doesn't install currently without a modification to the plugininfo file) check github there is a pull request for you to approve that solves that.

Merged the PR so that should fix that problem.

It doesn't really "need" a UI.   It will capture whatever channel ranges that FPP is configured to output.   Basically, it's creating the same sparse FSEQ files that FPP Connect from xLights would create.    If you want to capture a larger block of channels, configure a Virtual Matrix or something with the block you need. 

It provides FSEQ Start Capture and FSEQ End Capture FPP Commands that can be invoked in any of the various ways FPP Commands can be invoked.   You could use the Big Buttons to create buttons, but if your console can invoke an OSC command or REST or similar, your console could be setup to trigger the Start/Stop automatically.

Dan,
Thank you for this page. it has been a great deal of help over the years :)

One thing i noticed, and I am sure i am looking at it incorrectly...  so please set me straight

in the Octosctroller Capabilities section it states " The Octoscroller supports various types of panels including 1:4 and 1:2 scan "outdoor" panels, various ways panels multiplex rows, etc... "

then in the notes section it states " The Octoscroller only has 4 address lines and thus can only support up to 1:16 scan panels.  There are no extra pins on the BBB to be able to add support. "

so, am i reading this incorrectly that the octoscroller can only support 1/16 scan panels, or does it support the other scan panels; (of course the scan is brightness - -1/4 is half as bright as 1/2, and 1/8 is half as bright as 1/4, since current (I) is split...)

I am sure that I am wrong somewhere, please tell me where I got this wrong...

What are the error messages?
The developers have improved the error reporting quite a bit over the releases and yes, you might get an error on 7.5 that you didn't get on 6.3, but that isn't because there was no error on 6.3, it was that 6.3 didn't report them. They keep putting in error messages when there are common problems to help the user figure out why their FPP isn't running as they expect it to run.

Definitely give a try moving up to 7.5 first.   Dropping to 6.x is likely not a good option as xLights will likely stop supporting 6.x in the upcoming months (when 8.0 is released) so if you are using xLights to push config/sequences, you need to start getting all the units updated to the latest, not held back on 6.3.

There is an FPP Capture plugin for FPP already that should work better.   I'd give that a try and see if that will work for you.

3rd Party Integration / xCapture Playback Issues
Last post by DesignTagline - July 18, 2024, 10:37:25 PM
I am having a world of issues trying to get xCapture to record or FPP to playback the recorded file. Using a grandMA3 lighting console streaming 12 universes of sACN I get a very strange issue when I try to playback the recorded data once it is ingested into FPP. 

It seems to playback with a delay between universes rather than in sync which is weird. When you watch the videos (see below) you will notice the DMX seems to start on the first universe and then offset itself across the universes. I am very confused and have tried every setting I can in xCapture. What am I doing wrong here as everyone seems to love FPP and I am feeling quite confused that I can get a simple record to playback
https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fo/lmbxd9zorbe2mw8mb3k02/AJYxkfwfL17lNzayOuY6U5k?rlkey=0oxl0nckw49sxvb40n0omyluc&dl=0

Hardware is a fresh install RP4 with 7.5 on it. I did try the onboard recording plugin but had mixed results/reliablity issues with that as well. For our intended operation we don't want to build the show in Xlights and need to be able to build it in our media server of choice and then record either directly to FPP or via a program similar to Xcapture. If someone wants to undertake a project of building a nice recording plugin I can allocate budget to make that happen as well.
