Falcon Player (FPP) / Best way to schedule
« Last post by BillyBobJimbo on Today at 08:04:46 PM »
So I have no doubt that this has been covered before but Iím not finding it.  What is the best way to setup a schedule when you have a playlist that is essentially a filler between shows and the have the show playlist every 30 minutes.  My filler is basically a 3 min sequence that I just want to loop.
F16V3 Pixel Controller / Not connecting to WIFI
« Last post by brad76 on Today at 08:03:09 PM »
I'm new to this and was hoping I could control my light show through WIFI rather than running a long LAN cable to my F16v3.  I was under the impression I could connect to WIFI to run the show from Xlights.  I have successfully uploaded B021.  In the network configuration tab, I have input my SSID and Password (Preshared key), but the controller doesn't connect to the wifi on boot, and shows IP unless I connect to the hard LAN.

Does anyone have ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

Iíll update it on both a test BBB and A pi and will let you know
I did the same thing.  Waited until my show started at 4:30 PM, got some screenshots of the show playing on FPP, then pulled the plug on the power and plugged it back in.  Reproduced the problem easily.

Attached are screenshots of Status and Schedule pages before and after.  The Status page before shows the show playing (along with the Schedule page).  Then I cut the power and turned it back on.  As you can see, the Status page after shows the next day's schedule now.  The only way I can get it to resume playing is to hit the Play button on the Status page.

Here's what my schedule file looks like (/home/fpp/media/schedule):

1,Christmas 2018,7,16,30,00,21,00,00,1,2018-11-24,2019-01-11,

Any ideas?

F16v2 Pixel Controller / 263 Pixels Only Half Light Up
« Last post by abrianbaker on Today at 05:42:50 PM »
I have a F16V2 with a distro board connected running latest firmware. Everything was working as expected.

Ok, with that said, I have on port 1 a 12v string of pixels 263 nodes long power injected every 75 nodes. They were working perfectly then however now only half the string lights up. This happens when playing a sequence and in test mode. I have verified that everything is setup correctly in FPP and everything is setup correctly on the F16V2. As I said everything was working.

The only change I made was to add a dmx out on serial 2 for some flood lights.

I know the whole string works because if I reverse the nodes in the F16 control panel the other half lights up.

Any ideas??
Ahha! it moved from Input/Output Setup ->  Channel Outputs -> Other. Thanks for your quick response! :-)
Well the good news is I just waited another 20 minutes and it eventually finished updating. It works now. Thanks for the reply.
Look under Input/Output Setup -> Channel Outputs -> Pi Pixel Strings
