    [QUOTE=lightsonmontague;438360]And yes if you're using FPP to run your show you have to have a separate pie to run a hat anytime you connect a hat it disables the onboard audio

    Why is that? Any work around? I think this is the same problem I had with my remote pi's not playing audio. I was testing with GPIO pins enabled, probably same effect as using a hat.

    You don't need a separate pi. Just get a USB audio device and your good to go

    Yes, pick up something like this -- they're dirt cheap...

    Anyone know the size of the screws on the Ray Wu P10 panels?? The boscoyo strips had to be slightly modified to allow enough thread to go through.

    Sourced a P10 aluminum frame from a Chinese vendor for a 5x5 matrix. I will hopefully have it in a couple weeks and report back but seemed like a good option as opposed to fabricating. Weight was an issue and didn't want to do the frame out of lumber. Not sure the weatherproofing applications but this will be installing out of the weather.

    Todd's (diyledexpress) panels are 1/8 scan. I use them as well. I was pretty certain that Ray had 1/8 scan too.

    There are only 2 PWM signals on a Pi. When you use a hat or use the 2811 output on GPIO without a hat in FPP, that consumes the PWM signals for the 2811 data. This ends the audio out because it also relies on PWM to generate the audio.

    But, if you are using USB (as in a USB sound card or a USB FM transmitter), you are not using PWM for audio anyway.

    Hi Wolfie, I picked up about 40 Ray Wu 1/8 scan panels and was looking to put these in a mounted frame. I have the boscoyo strips for a 5x5 so this should slide right into the channel of the frame I sourced from a Chinese vendor. Total shipped was just over 120.

    Thanks. I was pretty sure Ray had 1/8 as well as 1/4 scan.
