Falcon Player (FPP) / FPP is currently updating.

Hi All,

I started having problems with the audio being ahead of the lights, up until last night it was fine.  Last night I looked at status and it showed updating.  I then went to about and did a manual update.  A bunch of stuff went by, but it took a while to finish.  My version shows v2.5.3 (v2.5 branch).  Tonight I still have the sync problem, an all of a sudden it showed updating again, so I once again went to about and did a manual update.  Any reason why this showed updates two nights in a row, have there been updates?  Should I turn off auto updates?  I'm still not sure why the audio is out of sync, but I'm trying different audio formats.

There are already several things supported on the RasPi and BBB USB port(s).

If one got sent to an FPP developer, that would be the first step.
It appears to support 4 universes of pixels (680 pixels) so it could be useful.

ps - I'm not a developer. (but I can spell it)

hmmm.  Sounds like a browser cache refresh problem. Using Chrome?

I'm in Greenville, SC so just a little warmer than you.  Right now, with just passive cooling my enclosures with 4 power supplies are maxing out at around 87F and that's with the sequence running.  Once the sequence stops the temps inside the enclosures drop to around 60F ( outside temp in the upper 30s to low 40s ) until then next morning when the outside temp starts to rise again.  So right now I'm trying to decide if I should add some fans to the enclosures or not.

Where do you live because you'll never get below ambient temp.   Of course most electronics like cold but sub arctic and they last longer if cold. I really don't worry about it much.  I set mine to 25C in a place that gets to about 5C at night and 20C during day in the shade.  I also have some that are always on. 
F16V3 Pixel Controller / Re: MegaTree is the Wrong Colors
« Last post by need_help on Today at 06:36:54 PM »
This is solved now.  It was caused by incorrect channels.  I had to do the following:
1) Go into Xlights2) Choose Test3) Click the Tree (it turned red)4) Click on the first channel (Still red)5) Click the second... third... (Then green)6) At that point I had to fix the channel that caused the tree to become a different color. 

The issue was caused by my 8 channel relay boards.  I assigned them as 8 channels when you need to be in multiples of 3's.  So we bumped them up to 9 channels and recompiled everything.

With the receptacles outdoors, I would want one on either side of the entry door so you wouldnt need to cross cords over the steps. And with the eithernet, at every corner of the house in the soffit. Two at each location. If you dont use them for Christmas lighting, you can use it for security cameras.

As an electrician, I figure you can never have too many outlets. As Jim mentioned above, place them where you want to use them, not where the installer wants to put them. The outlet above AND below the counter space at the desk location. A double duplex for the entertainment center. Wall switched controlled soffit receptacles.

Most of the time the customer will do a walkthrough with the electrician and/or builder before the rough wiring takes place. Ask your electrician for ideas. An experienced wireman will share their suggestions with you. Of course, it will cost more for the extras but its more expensive to have it added later. Save the money on the high end carpet and such and put your money behind the walls.

Just my two cents...
Falcon Player (FPP) / Re: How To Run a Sequence Between Sequences
« Last post by CaptainMurdoch on Today at 04:49:37 PM »
I thought I remember seeing in the past that you could select repeat in the playlist editor for a specific sequence. 

Maybe that is an option in the very updated xSchedule module of xLights. I use the FPP scheduler and have very simple schedules.

The new playlist code which was totally rewritten for FPP v2.x has some of the support for this, but I haven't finished that piece of the code since my initial goal was to achieve equivalent functionality to the FPP v1.x playlist.  I have stubbed out some provisions for repeating a single item with an optional max number of loops, as well as a 'run once' flag which is planned to allow you to run an entry once in the middle of a playlist such as if you needed to insert a 'get out of my neighbors driveway' message. :)

Have you looked at the Renard Plus Shop?

I love their gear for Renards.
