    Steve, when your Wiznets died did they flash a regular on/off pattern? On my E681s I have the upgrade Wiznets, I had one that was doing this and I couldn't connect to the controller. I swapped it out with a know good one and about two hours later the good one started doing the same thing. Now I'm too scared to try my last one for fear it'll get trashed too. I have the original Wiznets that came with the E681s. I intend to reflash a board with E681 firmware just to get the tree going again.

    @jstjohn - any plans for the further firmware releases for E682? I'd be interested to run more than 2k pixels per board - is it possible at all, or this is a hardware limitation?

    good day all,

    Do we all have the same feeling Sandevices is a lost cause?? I really hope not.

    Or does anyone sees a solution for continuing the bussiness by a younger devellopper/technician/owner?
    This is not intended being unrespectfull to Jim at all. But more a realistic looking into the future.

    please feel free to comment, as I also have to decide to buy some more Sandevices controllers or switch to other brands. ( I mostly use the 6804, my favorite)

    Best regards

    I hope I am not out of place to post this, but since there are people looking for a upgrade or update to the E682......
    There is an open source upgrade to the E682 that will convert it into a full fledged FPP controller:
    https://github.com/computergeek1507/...ter/PB_16_E682
    It basically removed the propeller controller and replaces it with a pocket beagle.

    Have you tried contacting Jim via his website? I'm hoping he just doesn't get on the forums too often and hasn't seen the more recent posts rather than he is no longer really doing anything with it.

    That's a very interesting modification. Is there any discussion or further documentation on it other than what's in the GitHub repo? I've got a few 681s that could benefit from a refresh. If this is just replacing the prop chip, it should work there too. (may need different pin assignments) I'm wondering if it uses the wiznet ethernet, or if it uses a USB nic. I do see the edimax in the photo. I also can't really tell what that upper left daughterboard is. Looks like maybe an SD card reader, but the PB already has one onboard.

    See this Thread Jon: http://doityourselfchristmas.com/for...xel-Controller
    That upper left daughtercard is an RTC module (same as you would use in pi).
    I don't think this modification would use the wiznet, something tells me it is tied to the prop controller and E682 firmware.
    Under the edimax is a USB port, so you could use a powered hub and have sound and wifi/wired ethernet.
    Post in other thread so Scott can confirm. I only ordered the boards for the full PB16 and BOM (just waiting on 3 pin connectors). 700 pixels at 25ms or 1400 at 50ms on each port.....and DIY...Love this hobby.

    I am working on a few things right now with the version 5 firmware, a couple of issues involving corruption of config data and a timing issue with WS2815s. As far as more pixels, I have some test code running 16 universes but can't run full speed (40+fps) on all universes without dropping frames. RAM is a limiting factor, if I go to 16 universes it wiil use up most of the remaining memory.

    Any significant improvements are going to require a hardware upgrade. The new Propeller 2 is looking interesting.

    Apologies for my lengthy absence from the forums. I have been and continue to be available by email. Dick might be right,
    maybe I've been at this too long. 10 years messing with pixels, and 50 years playing with microprocessors.

    Is it a significant hardware upgrade to the propeller 2? (i.e faster and more ram??), The BB project sounds interesting too. A completely different processor is probably out of question due to chip pin out or possibly even size ? As one that enjoys using my 6804 and 682, be interested to see changes too.

    Can you fix the HTTP responses so they are actually HTTP responses? We're having all kind of people complaining that the e682 and such don't work when stuck behind FPP with the proxy stuff turned on. It's 100% due to the responses not actually being HTTP responses so the Apache proxy stuff has no idea what to do with it. The are no HTTP response headers at all. No response code. Etc...
