It always happens this way. I found it. (Advanced Settings - Display All Options/Settings) To make this worse, I know this is already noted in this thread. :-[ All is good.
Falcon Player (FPP) / Re: GPIO triggers in 3.1

I misread your issue, sorry. It was the output (not input) triggers.

Let us know if this is the scenario you are trying to accomplish.

You have a sequence that you want to trigger an output on the GPIO at certain times?
And to do so, you have channels in xLights (Vixen?) to activate that trigger?
You have an Event for each trigger and then the Event is set up with the corresponding Major and Minor channel numbers?
Are you using the Raw Event IDs or the 10X?

And if Dan has it working, I think there might be some settings issues you are missing.
If you manually trigger your Event, does it work? If not, then there is probably something wrong with your event or the script that you are using.
Post a screen shot of those for us to look at.
If it does trigger, then it is either in your event Channels and/or your sequence settings. Post a screenshot of your event settings and attach your sequence (not the .FSEQ file, the .xml)

One thing I noticed and not sure if it was a typo but you said
Over 30 seconds I should have gotten 5 output triggers over channel 20 and 5 over channel 21
It is a little confusing with a Major/Minor Event channels and Major/Minor Event ID.
Each Event needs 2 channels from a sequence in order to identify the event to activate (identified by event ID) and you only mentioned one channel as a trigger???
For example, you have your sequence setup for channels 20 and 21 to be your "triggers." Then in your Events setup, the Major Event channel will be 20 and Minor will be 21.
if your Event ID is 1/1 and  then in your sequence, you will need to send a value of 10 to channel 1 and a value of 10 to Channel 2 to the Item you are using in your sequence for the triggers (Unless you selected Raw Event IDs)

In any case, send us the relevant information and we will get you going.
I just update/burned to new image 3.1 on PI 3+ and seem to have this same issue that the FPD is not being detected and Tab (Pixelnet/DMX) is missing. Is there a setting that I may have missed?

You'll likely need to package up some sort of test case.  I just attached a simple LED to pin7 (between the pin and v3.3) and it blinks perfectly to the channel it assigned.   Thus, not really sure what to suggest.  It seems to be working fine for me.

OMG, this works very well......Just got the Si4713 and it's Up and running... the range is great and the plug-in works very well. I'm still testing and will let you know if I find any issues.

By the way I'm using MP4 files and I edited the RDS metadata with Tag Editor (Mac).  very good!
Falcon Player (FPP) / How to Turn a TV on and off from FPP via HDMI
« Last post by vcuncg on Today at 10:40:19 AM »

I did not see anything about this on the forum, so I figured I would share this in case others might find it useful (sorry if it is a repeat).  I wanted to build a P5 tune-to sign, but did not have the time this year, so I decided to try a fairly inexpensive 32" TV with HDMI CEC control ($99 at Wal-Mart).  Since I do not want the TV on all the time, I needed to turn it on and off either by schedule or with the show.  This may be old-hat to others, but I was glad to find the process and wanted to share:

Step 1: SSH into the FPP and run the following command to get the CEC Utilities
sudo apt-get install cec-utils

Step 2: Run the following commands to turn the TV on or off:
Turn ON type: echo on 0 | cec-client -s -d 1
Turn OFF type: echo standby 0 | cec-client -s -d 1

I now have these in two separate script files that run at the start and end of the show:
echo on 0 | cec-client -s -d 1
echo standby 0 | cec-client -s -d 1

The commands were found at the following site along with a few other notes.

Hope this can help others this year as we hit crunch time!  Good luck to everyone on their shows.

Tried it this morning on the master branch with a test sequence. Over 30 seconds I should have gotten 5 output triggers over channel 20 and 5 over channel 21. I did get 2 or 3 but they seemed kind of random which is more than was happening in 3.1
Falcon PiCap / PiCap on Raspberry Pi 4

Has anyone tried the PiCap on a Raspberry Pi 4 board?   I am thinking of getting another Pi and thought I would see how the 4 works.

Falcon Player (FPP) / Re: Configure FPP to send Sync signal out USB port?
« Last post by dkulp on Today at 08:52:28 AM »

Take a look at:,11139.msg99999.html#msg99999

Basically, the LoRa modules I used show themselves as USB serial devices.  Thus, if you ignore the parts of the plugin that are used to configure the devices and just do the sync stuff via the USB, then it will likely work for the Xbee's.    This requires FPP 3.1 or higher.
