Started setting up the display this week because I have a lot to do (new stuff) and weather may not be great as we get closer to Thanksgiving. I didn’t make a ton of progress, but am set up for the weekend work.
This is PART 4 in a series about the 2.x version of Falcon Player – Installation. It covers manually configuring the Input/Output Setup section. For an example, I start with xLights, configure Falcon Player and show my controller settings – an end-to-end demo.
This is PART 1 in a series about the 2.x version of Falcon Player – Installation. It covers imaging an SD card and initial configuration to get things running. If covers the Raspberry Pi and BBB installations as they are similar, but a little different.
This episode is a bit of a poo-poo platter of updates, but includes a demo of bypassing a controller’s power distribution and why you might want to plus an explanation of Falcon Port Sharing on both the F16V3 and F48.

The course is designed to take someone new to pixels through everything they need to know to get a show up and running. It covers both hardware and software. There’s even a section on sequencing using xLights that even people running shows might want to check out. If you take the course and like it, please leave a good review with a couple of sentences about how it helped you or why you liked it. Reviews really help a new course get noticed. If you see something that needs changing, please let me know that too.
Pixelsticks are small, WiFi RGB Pixel controllers. YOU MUST FLASH THEM YOURSELF TO USE THEM. There are two ways to flash or program a Pixelstick. This video covers using the java tool (TLDR) as well as flashing from the Arduino IDE.
