Here is my first show with XLights. It's a very simple animation because I was fighting many gremlins trying to put it all together on a tight budget, and only started in mid-November.
There's a sequence of 8...
First of all, best regards from Germany
I use FPP to control a matrix controller. This has Univers 0 first. Sequences created with xLights work perfectly. If I want to use this as a scheduler / playlist, the first line in the matrix is missing.
Does somebody has any idea?
Thank you and happy...
I am testing an ESPixelStick with xLights and FPP. There are holds and jumps during the display (just one string of 50 leds). Can you help me set up the networking definitions for the devices to get a clean show?
I'm using my home Xfinity/Comcast internet network router. I made a separate...
First time ever using an animation/sequencing software for leds for holiday light shows.
I got Xlights working with FPP on a Pi Zero, and an ESPixelStick!
Many more to come I hope

I have just started playing around with pixels and have a beagebone black cape (Hanson HE123). I have flashed the beaglebone emmc with FPP and everything works fine when connected with USB (192.168.7.1). But, when I connect it directly to the computer or via a router, the beaglebone...
Hey team, I have a playlist scheduling question...
I want to have my show run a repeating xlights sequence (without music) and then every hour, on the hour play a musical sequence. When it's done go back to the repeating lights only sequence. I can't seem to see how I can do this in FPP (which I...
Hope everyone's displays are up and running nicely - mine however, is not.
I started out in the pixel game this year, and decided to start small.
I'm running a Pi3B+ with FPP loaded (just updated to 2.5 this evening).
I'm also running a PiCap -...
So I've got something of a unique issue in front of me, suddenly. I haven't seen this problem in the past, but I've so far been unable to roll back to a version of FPP that doesn't do this to me. I warn you now of the wall of text that is coming up, so skip to the bottom...

Greetings from the Gold Coast,
I am having trouble getting my P10 panels to display a sequence (created with xLights 2017.32) using a BBB with Octoscrolla and FPP v1.9-64.
It is a 5h x 4w matrix, all panels with arrows up, connected to an octoscrolla, outputs 1-5.
Each output is driving a...
I've been working on a project on and off for the past year or so. It's primary focus is allowing/enabling voting on sequences in my display and secondary as a Christmas light finder for my local community.
I'm intending to let viewers use this functionality in 2017
The aim was to make...
