When you had the USB sound card plugged in, did you go to the FPP Settings page and select the USB card as the audio output device?

IIRC, the pixel driver uses the same PWM that's used for audio. It makes sense that you can't do MP3 and WS8211 at the same time.

I would have thought the USB audio card I have would work since it doesn't use that at all. Maybe I need to go into the kernel and disable the sound drivers.
So, if I'm going to jump into this with more HW, should I make the next step the Pi-Hat or bite the bullet and get the F4V3 (I'd like to make small steps...)
Thoughts?

Falcon Player (FPP) / ArtNet support in Bridge Mode
« Last post by ericwesley on January 21, 2019, 06:00:37 PM »
Hey y'all!


Would it be possible to add Artnet input support for the FPP in bridge mode? I see lots of output info on the forum, but not anything for input.


Why do you ask? My next project is a DJ facade made out of P10 panels. It will be displaying visual effects from Winamps' AVS. Yes it's ancient and dead... But I absolutely love Winamp as my music player! And AVS is great for dances. Anyway, the size of my P10 screen (a mere 30 panel 6ft x 2.5ft screen) prohibits the use of my lighting software (Lightjams) as it exceeds the current limit of 64 E1.31 Universes. I would like to use VVVV instead of Lightjams if possible, but VVVV currently only supports Artnet.


Is there a way to add Artnet input for bridge mode? Or is there some other way to make Artnet -> P10 possible without using a $100+ Linsin HDMI video card?

Just updated thanks. At least now the onboard clock can be set and saved.

Ok. I re-installed FPP on the PI and I didn't connect my usb sound card. I'm getting sequences now. When I plug the usb sound card in and reboot, AND associate an MP3 with the sequence, it won't play again. Even the sequence test won't work.
So, there's some kind of interference with that USB unit. Still investigating... If I get the piHAT, can I use the R-PI's 3.5mm audio output. If not, what should I be using?
...getting closer...

Follow Jim's advice....KISS. Then work up from there as you figure it out even though my first prop was a 20'  2,000+- pixel mega tree.

Falcon PiCap / Re: Will this work
« Last post by mararunr on January 21, 2019, 04:21:04 PM »
There are several ways to do it, just depends on personal preference.   I prefer to do all my zig-zags in the controller.  In xLights just model it as a 16x50 tree with no zigzags since you only do it one place or the other and not both.  He said he was using a PiCap, so this is how I would do it in the PiCap.  This is based on a start channel of 1 - which may need to be adjusted for his particular start channel (change the start channel 1 to the correct start channel and hit F2 twice)

Thank you pixelpuppy - I learned something new today (I do every day but I really like learning this).  Much appreciated for adding to the knowledge rolodex.
