Falcon Player (FPP) / Re: Help with setup for new P5 panels?

This is only for my Tune To matrix anyway, so any possible refresh issues would not be noticeable.   ;)


Edit: However, now I know what exact settings to use for my larger matrix, and that I need to try to group the outputs as smartly as possible. It's a 5x4 matrix and I'll be using a BBB/Octo to drive that one as well.

Yes you can do that. But how close is one to another?  a second way would run a 4 port switch   Basically House router to the switch and from the switch also would be your Pi plus each F16v3

Falcon Player (FPP) / Second F16V3
« Last post by Haus on July 21, 2019, 05:29:09 PM »
Hello All


I purchased a second F16v3 that I want to add to this year's show. I think I know how to add another E1.31 but not sure how to wire it. Do I connect a ethernet cable from the spare ethernet port on the first F16V3 to either port on the second F16V3?


Thanks in advance

F48 Pixel Controller / Re: Possibly bricked my F48 flashing

Where did you get firmware 2.50 at?

It was on the Pixelcontroller Store page for the F16v3. Its back to the v 2.01 right now.

Check there occasionally. There may have been a bug reported.

Are you really splitting up the outputs (5 and 8 )? I don't know if the outputs need to be contiguous or not


It's not a real "issue" as it will work fine.  However, the timing calculations are based on uses each of the ports in continuously.  Thus, the refresh MAY be slightly lower.  That said, it won't be noticable with 2 panels per output.

No issue there at all.  I have done that in several different ways using several different types of hardware.  Currently my P10 panel is using outputs 1, 3, & 5 on a PocketScroller on top of a Pocket Beagle.  Previously I have used non-contiguous outputs on an Octoscroller on a Beaglebone Black, and on ColorLight cards.

Okay...wow...I said same issue...so I set them back to 1/8th...save, restart, didn't fix. Go back to 1/16th, save, restart...full panels!


Thank you Dan! (Maybe my first 2-3x of trying to save just never "took"?   :o [size=78%])[/size]

I tried setting them to 1/16th - same issue.




I had them originally on outputs 1 & 2. I was going to do 1-4, one for each panel, but I was simply trying to get them tested before I made final setup tweaks.

Sell/Trade / Renard SS8, PIC Programmer, RenardESP, Spare Parts
« Last post by ucfknight98 on July 21, 2019, 02:48:46 PM »
$60 Shipped in Continental US. Read description carefully.

Cleaning out some old hardware. I have an old Renard SS8 that I was last playing with as a test bed with a RenardESP.

The SS8 is missing one of the PIC chips as that was removed for the RenardESP input. The chip is included with the spare parts. Also, I do believe one of the channels is non-functional, likely a bad MOC3023 (multiple are included with the spare parts).

Also included are two RenardESP (http://digwdf.org/store/product.php?id_product=261) without the ESP. One has the correct LM117T regulator, the other has an incorrect 317 regulator (would need to be replaced, 4 of these parts included in spares).

Included is a PIC K150 programmer with cable.

Spare parts are:
Qty.  Part #                Descripttion                                    Ref
1       ACH-18.432-EK    Crystal Clock Oscillator, 18.432 MHz   U3
13     MOC3023             Optoisolator, Triac Driver                   M1-M8
9       BTA08-600CWRG  Triac, 6A 600V                                  T1-T8
2       GMA-10a              Fuse, Fast Acting 10A                        F1
1       534-3527C           Cover, Fuse
