    The thing that is irritating me the most is that after testing the extension, I can no longer get the Pi to trigger and sequences on the mega controller. I have tested the controller on each of the usb ports on the Pi and still no blinking lights. I have tested and both music from the sequences will play (on a small plug in speaker) and my videos will play fine but can't get the sequences to work. Argggghhhh!!!

    Does the mega work from your PC?

    Yes the mega functions perfectly when running sequences from my computer and Vixen. The problem is the Pi doesn't. Videos and music will play from the Pi with no problem. I have tried all usb ports on the Pi with no success.

    It is amazing what the correct usb cord and correct port ID can do for frayed nerves. Received the new cord yesterday (thanks wilmar for suggestion!) and was able to get FPP working with the mega and lights blinking to music. Thanks all!
