    Default FPP as sender to Linsn receivers

    Wanted to see if anyone has link to instructions on how one can setup FPP from Pi to any of the Linsn receivers (RV90XXXX0 or RV80XXXX). The Linsn receiver is listed in FPP and saw the receivers at the following URL https://www.ledinthebox.com/. They are really cheap and my believe is that they will handle buffers very well at least better than Pi or beaglebone hats.

    I intend to order some to play around with, so if anyone has experience with them please share some knowledge/link here.

    Those look like they are designed to drive a matrix of dumb RGB LEDs. Is that your intended use?


    2020 Full sized show reworked for the new location. Only adding (famous last words) 13 RBLs that I finally got converted to using pixels
    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show. Dim show (3000 pixels) had regular visits most nights.

    Most people seem to be using the colorlight 5A-75B receivers for panels. I used two last year with great results. Excellent guide from the Aussies if interested. https://auschristmaslighting.com/thr...2/#post-108041 You'll probably find more help on the Linsn receivers there as well.

    Capt. Murdoch also confirmed that Colorlight is preferred over Linsn because of various issues. Can be done, but they’re a PITA, apparently. He dumped all his Lindn cards except his test card.

    You can get Colorlights for $17, too, and they’re well-supported by the FPP team and community.

    I will rather stick to what works. I have always use Octoscroller but I am looking for something to play around with that will work better. I will take a look at Colorlight and thanks to all you guys for great help as usual.
