    Default P10 Matrix

    Looking to add a P10 Matrix to my show. after doing research I have the following questions.

    I'm using Raspberry Pi2

    I plan to use Ron's Matrix Board
    I read the max distance from the Pi board to the Matrix is a ~ 2m? so are people running 2 Pis?

    Ron's site states the board drives up to 12 panels each, is that per each of the 3 outputs or 12 total for the board?
    If i'm running a 6x6 36 total P10s what is the best method to drive them?

    Ray Wu P10 panels are 1/4 Sac. Anyone using these?

    For that many panels I'd recommend a pi3. They must be 1/8 scan

    Default P10 Matrix

    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
    Unless you use USB audio adaptor

    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

    i was considering upgrading to the Pi3. DIYLED Express doesn't specify the scan rate on their site. What panels are you using?
