Matrice P5 leds 2727 in General Decorating Questions Posted January 4 2 minutes ago, Obejohnknobe said: Thank you Caniac! I had already purchased the Pi 4 last April and hopes of understanding the mini computer with Linux. This project came along and seemed to make the most sense for the Pi use and have a pi hat with GPIO connections for the panels. If you are saying the ColorLight will help with the color, then it is an option. The matrix I will be running is 128 by 64 with four P5 panels maybe a 2' X 1' size total and will be about 30' from the side of the road for easy viewing distance. I do have S5 but run S4 for my display. Tried S5 and have not transferred my show yet as this is also one of my learning projects for the year. Everyone is saying the scrolling words are the easy part but no one has shown or provided a link where I can see how it is accomplished so I can try it. Do you have a way or link you could provide so I can learn, please? Thanks!! John my stuff is in xLights so it might only confuse you. With FPP its just load and go, you don't need to learn Linux to work with it. you should have to mess with the GPIO connections, just add the PiHat and connect your panels (remember the panels are 5V so don't use a 12V power supply or you will see blue smoke). In FPP you just setup the static IP, then setup your output tab (how many panels you are using, how they are connected, etc.). There is an FPP Facebook group with tons of help.
