Falcon Player (FPP) / Re: PCB for connecting an OLED panel to a Raspberry Pi
« Last post by AAH on Today at 01:23:06 AM »
Can an OLED be used with a PI CAP installed if I can connect to the proper pins?
Yes it can. I've got a board I've called rPi-MFC that I'm still testing and it has both an Oled display and 2811 output.


Would you know if you could do the same with a matrix hat?
It's going to depend on whether it's 1,2 or 3 outputs as the I2C pins are used for the 3 output version. The rPi-MFC I mentioned earlier has both a 2811 output and a P10/P5 output.

Try rebooting and see if that helps.  The GraphicsMagic++ libraries should have been installed as part of the update but maybe that script didn't run.  If a reboot doesn't fix it, can you look at the upgrade_config.log file and see if there are any errors listed?


Thanks! Successfully updated to the Master branch on a different Pi. Everything, including the new functionality, seems to be working fine. Will try again on my Master FPP tomorrow.

Thank for this thread.  Yes you nailed the problem.  Was having trouble figuring  it out because of several bad cables.  I changed everything out but the controller.  Took out one bad cable and replaced it with another bad cable.  Where did anyone find how the diff boards worked. Is it in a manual somewhere?
Get yourself an inexpensive cable tester off Amazon. It saves loads of time when diagnosing issues.

Did not know that, thanks! Updated to the Master branch and I can see the changes. Unfortunately, getting compile errors: "make: GraphicsMagick++-config: Command not found", so fppd.o won't build.

So Chris, is it possible to add “sunset minus 30 minutes” and maybe “sunset minus 1 hour” . . . . A little fine tuning for on time.  Not sure if plus time is requires, or if sunrise needs plus or minus.

To get to the Master Branch, enter developer.php after your FPP's IP address.

Have downgraded back to 2.6 for now. Will try again another day.

As a bit of info there is some cat 5 cords that I believe is a cross over cord. That means that one pair is switched for a special reason.  Charlie J.

Protocols - DMX/E1.31/DDP / Re: What is DDP?
« Last post by Stormyblade on April 22, 2019, 07:10:36 PM »
Hey guys, just wanted to ask about this Halloween setup that I've been tinkering around with. I may not have the exact # of channels correct for my planned 5x4 P5 matrix, but I'm just throwing around some ideas for setup/layout and was curious if the following images show a correct setup for a DDP-based entry. As you can see, I'm still thinking I need to tie in a direct IP address for the FPP/BBB that will be attached to the matrix.


Thanks in advance.
