NTJP Posted October 24, 2018 Share Posted October 24, 2018 Posted this is several forms asking for help Background - This is my 2nd year, have Showtime Central with 2 CTB16PC. 1st to use pixels. - In the spring I did a lot of research and asked questions about building a Mega Tree, the controller and setup. After all of that, bought the Pixie16 with 16 50 node strings in the Spring sale. Bought 4 more strings to make 20. Spent the summer building the tree. Got sick a couple of times in the hospital and fell behind on build. Anyway got it done and from all the reading in the spring, had chosen to use XLights to program, Spent 6 months programming sequences. Also on reading and advise used the Raspberry Pi with FPP. Well.... after weeks of trying to make this work I am now learning Pixie16 will not work with FPP as it is not DMX and also now reading you cannot fold them, so cannot have 2 together making 100 acting as 2 50 node strings. Therefore 10 dangles control 20 strings. Well to the point.... PANIC also a sick feeling in the pit of the stomach. My best guess is to convert the the XLights back into LOR and use PE. Last year was my first year and i am all LOR controllers. Have S4 and can also get S5, Pro user. Do not have SS. Would be great if someone could tell me how to make Pixie16 work with FPP. But what I need now is how to use PE to take the converted XLight files and add to the SEsequences I built last year. Hope this makes sense. My controllers. 2 - CTB16PC's, 1 - CMB-24D, and 1 - Pixie16. Can leave out the CMB24 if make it easier. Most important is to make the Pixie16 work. PLEASE HELP.....
