FPP Freezing/Pausing
« on: November 30, 2017, 05:57:34 PM »
Just trying to see if anyone has had this problem with Sequences freezing/pausing? Music still play's it just pauses

My setup is I have two Alphapix 16 running 32 universes with 65 nodes per string. The arch is an alphapix 4 only running 37 pixels per string and 4 universes. They're running on their own subnet with no Internet access.  Arches and tree freeze. Sequences work great when running from xlights.


Thanks for any help

This known to happen when fpp is emitting unicast to controllers that are not switched on and on the network.

Thanks Keith

My 3 controllers are on unicast but they are all on and working. I tried them on Multcast but nada. They only work if I have them on Unicast. So I guess its best to use Xlights then or is there something Im missing not being able to run them in multicast?

They are 2  Alphapix 16 and 1 AlphaPix 4 all on Unicast and on its own subnet Channels in alphaPix are set up as
Universe 1 Channel 1 since it wont let me number above 512

Thanks Again brother
