Ok. Back again. I found this falcon player manual and followed along. I gave it a static ip address 192.168.1.11 and named it fpproof. Saved, restarted it and so on. I finally hit shutdown. It has now been restarted; shows new name and new ip address. I typed in fpproof.local. it doesnt come up with errors but it also doesnt bring me to the falcon player setup screen anymore. Goofed up something. Also on the menu where it let's me choose what internet connection I want to connect to, FPP is no longer there.In its simplest for for your K4-PB installation:
xLights is used to generate sequences, sends them to the FPP, and provides some FPP control.
The Pocket Beagle is the interface between your network, and the K4-PB. It is a SBC running the FPP program.
FPP decodes the sequence, and sends the data to the K4-PB.
The K4-PB sends the data and power to the pixel strings.
I suggest that you start with a fresh installation of FPP (wipe the SD card and re-install FPP)
Ensure the power jumper on the K4-PB is set to 5V
Insert the nano wireless adapter into the USB port on the K4-PB
Connect the K4-PB to your computer via the USB connector on the Pocket Beagle. (No other power or pixels connected)
At this point you should be able to connect to FPP with a browser using one of the addresses http://192.168.6.2/ or http://192.168.7.2/
When you achieve a connection, stop and get more advice.
To proceed, we'll need a screen shot from the ipconfig command, and the configuration of your router.
