🎄MEGATREE Update (2020) 🎄

I added a huge star to the top of the megatree this year so I had to change a few things. Amazon links: https://www.amazon.com/shop/canispaterchristmas?listId=WESXFMPFKIX6&ref=idea_share_inf

    Jeff, it’s been a long time since we last spoke. I have a question if I can pick your brain for a moment. I have an ESPixel Stick and I can not get it to work with FPP v 4.5 I have set both to unicast and multicast and it will send any data to it. I can however send something directly from xlights and it works fine. Any help would be welcomed, good Sir.

    FPP outputs and ESPixelStick inputs need to agree. Sounds like you have it correct between xLights and ESP, but I’d check the output of the Pi. Also, the Pi defaults to outputting on eth0 so you may need to change that to wlan0. That does mean the Pi will be sending everything out over WiFi which may/may not be what you want.

    Thanks Jeff for the reply. I figure out what it was shortly after I type up my question. It was a really dumb mistake on my part. For got to check the box to active E1.31 in FPP. Today I setup a new VLAN connected WLAN to my house network, then put the eth0 in the light show VLAN. Also setup a new wireless network in that same VLAN and connected the pixels stick to it. Success on that part. Now my show data is isolated to VLAN 10. I know you have spoke about the ESPixel Stick in past videos, it is a neat little device, but do you use it at all in your setup? I’m trying to convince the wife to let me spend some money and maybe to a small tree this year, but worry it wouldn’t be able to handle output of 700 or so LED.

    Glad you got it working. I don’t use WiFi pixels in my show. WiFi is saturated where I live and it wouldn’t work reliably for me. I’ve heard you might get a universe or two, but it depends on so many factors as to how well it works. I prefer to run copper (Ethernet cable) or use an FPP remote if I can’t run copper.
