    For those of you that are interested, here is the other Pi Pixel adapter from Ron's Holiday Lights that has been discussed.


    I built this from the $5 PCB that Ron is selling on his group buy over on DiyChristmas.

    You can add only the features you want, (RTC, Power supply for Pi, NRF (REALLY COOL!!!), Renard/DMX).

    The BOM and build instructions are on the first link.

    I will post a video once I get the pixel adapter finished.

    Did I mention it does not require PIC programming? Everything is built into Falcon Pi Player (FPD) v1.8.

    He also has a Pi HAT for P10 panels.
    https://ronsholidaylights.com/raspbe...atrix-adapter/

    Ron's approach to Pixel controllers is pretty neat, in my opinion. For example, his 16 Universe board is based on an Altera FPGA ($15) with options to do POE, etc... tons of options.

    My $0.02 for the evening.


    NRF video for those interested.

    It would be nice to compare and contrast the price and features of this one compared with the other one. For starters, the other one was about $13 complete plus shipping. So maybe $17 each. What is the total cost of this one ? I don't recall if those have clocks or not. But this "Ron's" version has a clock. I think the feature that draws people on this one is the jumpers for Renard support.

    And speaking of Pi players with Renard support. How does a Pi Hat with two pixel outputs work with Renard software? Is there now a version of Renard software that runs on Lynix on the Pi hardware (and with the same multi-Pi sync features ?
    Thanks,

    I will attempt to put together a price and feature comparison of the two boards this weekend.

    Andy just posted a quick setup video for the PiHat from Crockett.

    Anyone using these in their display this year? If so how are you using them and how are you protecting the Pi? I had planned on running pixel icicles off of mine but didn't order the icicles in time. The plan was to go over wifi so I wouldn't have to run a bunch of cat5 everywhere. I have tested a pi/cap with other pixels and it works great. I may throw the pi into a tupperware or piece of pvc with endcaps and throw some pixels onto some bushes just for fun this year. I have a few hundred strawberry sized bulbs - similar to the gece ones.

    I am not using one but most people tend to put them in a cg1500 with the power supply. I have some cg500 that will work for the Pi and I even 3D printed some mounts for the Pi with the intention of putting it in one. I used the cg500s for my Falcon differential receivers. I have extra of both cg1500 and cg500 if you need one.
