    Default Decided to try P10 panels..

    With so much going on this year I decided to just run last years show until next year......Until I decided I wanted to try to get some P10 panels up and going with video.
    I'm running a 3W x 4H matrix. Not sure how I should go about setting up the controllers and universes. Should I use a grid and use 96 x 64 and my dimensions? Do I need to make another controller option? and what about universes? Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Yes grid - FPP as controller
    With some issues this year they say you should go with the Beagle Bone and a Octoscroller, if you can find stock

    I understand there is a new load for the BeagleBone that fixes many P10 issues.

    (I still like the Pi3 and Ron's board.)

    FPP as your controller, add new E131 with 18,342 outputs....you do not need to configure the universes....you will export, therefore bypassing that info.

    More later

    I've had the P10 panels since last year and never used them. I also have a BB and Octo from last year.

    If anyone is interested, I have my version of Ron's board available for only $1.50 with $1 to USA ship.
    BarneyBear has a working version of this setup.
    It's my understanding that you can make this work with a pi zero; however, I have not tested that.
    If True, you could build a small P10 setup controller for about $15 total.

    Yes,
    All I did was take his board and make it a bit smaller so I could get more boards out of a panel and add better descriptive text on the board.
    I can post a pic if you like.
