    I ran my show last night for first time using FPP and things ran without a hiccup.
    This morning I was leaving for work when I noticed my house outline was changing colors along with a few other elements. I had this issue before with a 27 channel DMX controller that would start a test pattern after it stopped receiving a DMX signal. In HLS there was the option to turn everything off at the end of a scheduled show so the DMX controller received an all off command that would stop this from happening.
    Is there such a setting in FPP? Would I have to create a separate sequence and schedule it after show ends to turn all elements off?
    I haven't had a chance to try anything yet as I just noticed it this morning, so asking if there is a quick solution.
    Thanks.

    What is your last sequence ? If you ate using xlights ,Has the sequnce been imported into xl ?


    You could simply have an off effect at the end of the seq, but it should not really be required.


    Is the playlist still running in FP ?

    Fix for this was simple....
    -Created a 20 second sequence with no music
    -Created display group with all models
    -Placed an OFF effect on all models for the 20 seconds
    -Saved sequence and created a separate playlist
    -Scheduled the playlist to play 15 minutes after show
    No lights on this morning.
    ;)
