  1. Love LOR - Trying Raspberry PI B + w/ Falcon Pi Cap

    Setup your Raspberry Pi with the cap and pixels testing from the pie first to confirm that your pixels are working. Then go in and Define you're DMX universes and channels and set up the pi in bridge mode. You'll have to go into LOR and set up you're DMX and e1.31 to match what you set up in the pi. I'm not sure what your license level is but you will need to be using e1.31 to communicate with the pi. I strongly suggest using the pi in unicast mode versus multicast. Join us over in the Falcon Christmas forum to better help you with this project.
  2. solenoid to start projector

    I was watching the video on my phone and I didn't catch the actuator moving. He used the word solenoid which had me looking for something completely different.
  3. solenoid to start projector

    When you say solenoid are you talking about a car starter solenoid? I just want to make you aware that a car starter solenoid is not rated for continuous use ( it will overheat). They do have continuous use solenoids available at most decent Auto Parts places.
  4. Has anyone sequenced Barney - I love You

    Damn, Batney is gone a little anorexic there. (Hey kids can you say eating disorder)

  6. Pixcon16 some pixels remain on

    Lower your voltage to the pixels. Some bullet pixels work best at 11.8 volts. If that's not it start checking for loose cables. In the pixel world they wait for a command then hold that command until they're told to do otherwise so if no new data comes through they will stay on until they're told to turn off.
  7. Within the controller the dimming curves can be changed to accommodate LEDs they can also be changed to be just on off channels which was likely the cause of your problem and was corrected by a reset. I'm just pointing it out so you have a better understanding what might have happened. Moving forward if you have a mix of incandescent lights and LEDs you may want to adjust the dimming curves so that they fade roughly the same.

    Get out the butter and jam, because that thing is toast.
  9. What to do with bullet pixels

    If you're having trouble figuring it out I'll help you, you can just send them my way so you don't have to worry about finding something to do with them.
  10. If you have some of the Falcon boards why did you go back and take a chance with holiday Coro? I would imagine by the time you pay for the new holiday Coro experimental board and an extended warranty you would be close to the price of the Falcon board.
  11. A couple of years? Damn lucky all that's wrong is it won't start. Can't remember which vehicle but I know there was one that used to tie the fuel pump ground to an oil pressure switch. And then there was Ford's infamous fuel pump safety switch that would trigger in an accident. Unfortunately it triggered if you bumped the curb or if the kids had a fight in the back seat( there's a story behind that). I towed in a lot of Fords just push the reset button (State Patrol didn't like us playing with cars on the interstate).
  12. It's one I was going to be working on for this upcoming year. I wouldn't mind having the having the faces if it's not an inconvenience to you. ejbuechner@gmail.com
  13. Switch: Gigabit vs. 10/100?

    I run a few of those bridges and I've used a gigabyte switch without a problem. But when I run my show I'm using a Netgear fs108. I'm on firmware 4.01. And 4.02 .
  14. Last year I added Magic from Pilot. Just think about the lyrics. Ho Ho Ho it's magic. And it's a catchy tune that everybody recognizes.
