    Default Mp3 board smoked

    Not sure why but I smoked my mp3 board tonight. I am dead in the water here and spark-fun does not have a replacement for this vs1053 mp3 board. No idea what to do as my show has now come to a complete stop. I have a version 2 main board that worked great last night

    May want to consider a Pi with Falcon Player. It will play the sequence and MP3. Do you have an electronics/robotics hobby shop nearby? You might be able to obtain one locally. In my area Fry's has them in stock.

    Maybe u could help add a driver to fpp. It is open source. Fpp currently supports e1.31,artnet, usb dmx,opendmx,renard,pixelnet, lor, d-lights. Adding a few more protocols would be nice. If interested go to falconchristmas.com and post a thread

    Or if you are not a programmer, point me to the helix protocol specs and I will see what I can do in FPP to support it for next year.

    Unfortunately, the Helix is not a controller in the conventional sense - it's a standalone show player in a similar vein to the Pi/FPP. It was ahead of its time, but in today's environment, I fear its time has passed. I made the transition when the FPP was released and haven't looked back.
