    Default Pixel Grid + Vixen

    Wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions for which controller to use when creating a Pixel Grid. My goal is to have it run a sign in the front yard and let it loop.

    Not sure how to do that with just an Arduino and a waterproof case.

    How many pixels in your prop? Do you need a sequence or just run a "canned" loop?

    I have the pie + FPP + Arduino. Just trying to figure out how to get the pie to talk to the Arduino to make the lights work.

    Iíll try the serial usb. Thatís what used to be configured to the laptop via vixen so perhaps same thing just now via the pie.

    Supper stoked. Hope this works!

    FPP + PI has the same general serial support as Vixen
