  1. On a Falcon F16v3 controller. got a short somehow and damaged the V1 Power input screw terminal block. While the block wiggles, doesn't look like it's plugable and has to be soldered in. Anyone know the part number and what the proper name is for this block so I can find a source. Thanks Mike
  2. Thanks I missed the disk imaging process. Videos on older versions of FPP, didn't have this step.
  3. Doing initial FPP install on a Raspberry PI 3B. When I power the Raspberry, nothing apears on my monitor. Want to confirm I downloaded the current image file from the gethub site. Downloaded the 3.5.6 Pi version and when it's unzipped, the micro SD card contains the file FPP-v3.5.6-Pi. File type is listed as a "disk image file". I inserted SD into Raspberry, connect mouse, keyboard, ethernet, monitor and then turned on power and nothing. Thanks Mike
  4. If you have a sequence for this song, I would appreciate a copy. mkpageler@comcast.net Thanks\ Mike M
  5. Did some searching and didn't see reference to driver chip but did find rs485 interface ic and rs485 transceivers.
  6. The socket for this plug looks like it's 2 rows with 4 pins. Is this plugs actually a CPU chip of some kind?
  7. Had a short in my outlet on a Gen 3 CTP16PC. While searching for fuses, I pulled one too many items out of board. Right below the Ethernate connectors, there's 1/4" squarish plug that has 2 rows of 3 pins each. I bent it all the heck. Will be out of town this wseek and won't be able to follow-up with helpdesk. Any ideas on what this is, and any potenitilal sources for it. I now wish I had followed throught with thoughts on having a backup 16PC.
  8. Not familiar with show directory so did a checked it out on LOR's store page. Since it doesn't have a built-in clock, you trigger it by a timer/motion sensor. So I guess I would put a timer on the dirtory and and just plug the controllers directory into power and leave them on as most of us do.
  9. yEP...DO A GOOGLE SEARCH FOR VIDEO ON "FALCE F16V2 OR f16V3" and "lightorma". Some pretty good video that go througt the whole process of infacing Falcon'swith LO|R. Seems straight forward once you have mastered the process but there is a pretty decent learning curve before yhou reach that "guru" point.
  10. Large quantity of used dumb RGB rectangle modules from Holiday Cror. Before putting them on Craigslist, thought I would first check to see if anyone in the Twin Cites MN area can use some or all of them. I have: 40 strings with 6 modules per string. (240 total modules) 8 strings with 12 modules per string (92 total modules.) Pleanty of wire leads on both ends of strings to solder longer strings. The adhesives foam is gone from pulling the modules up from backing boards. If interested, respond via email to: mkpageler@comcast.net Will reply to this post when modules are gone so please doon't ask "are they still available" or want me to ship them. Mike
  11. Here's a handy mega tree design program. You can adjust height, width, number of stringk/strand, etc.. Mega Tree Design Tool
  12. Never going to get someone elses 48 channels sequences to matc you disply because of different display elemenst. You'll have to learn to copy/paste channels from shared sequences that can match portions of you display. So never limit yourself to x number of channels when making sequences. For 16 channels mega trees, you can get shared or purchased sequences and then copy/past them into you 48 channels existing setup or visc-versa.
  13. On surface, might seem like a great tool but maneuvering it into tight spaces would be a major limiation for me. Much of my zip tying for display elements requires some finger tip control of ties. Kind of an expensive options for simply zip tying bundles of wries. Don't through all you zip ties into your toolbox and get a flush cutter pair of pliers to cut ties.
  14. Might just heard visitor'singing along to SC..never seemed so good....so good...so good. Saw Neil in the late 80's,. Being first of December, inlcude 4 or 5 christmas songs. Anno8uced he's retiring from performing last year becuase of MS or something similar.
