  1. I just received my EVO boards. I have loaded the firmware and all seems to be working correctly except that the board does not seem to use the pin2dmd.fsq and pin2dmd.pal files that are loaded onto the SD card. I am sure the SD card is working as I loaded the upd file and on reboot the boards showed "updating" The board is not yet activated, does it need to be activated to use the colorization files? Edit: Answering my own question, I just received the key - thank you lucky1. Activating the board fixed the problem. As far as I can tell the board ignores the colorization until it is activated.
  2. I'm having some trouble with PCBWay, I ordered 10 assembled boards about nearly 1 month ago. last week they said they had some problems with the PCB boards, there were some scratches but they would remake them. They remade the PCBs but there was still some scratches, and they said the scratches will not affect the use, I asked for photos and then told them to proceed as they say it will not affect the use. photos of scratches attached: Now they say: Hello, Sorry for the delay. We found some problems with the board. Please look at the picture. These holes are not covered well. Because the size of these holes is too large, it is not good to cover them even if they are produced again. Please confirm whether they are acceptable. If not, it is suggested to change the hole to 0.3mm for re-production. Please advice, thanks. It looks like the heat transfer holes under the voltage regulator, can I say it is acceptable? What do they mean that they will not cover?
  3. Thanks I found the MTA-156 series at Digikey, they have male and female versions.
  4. Hi Lucky, can you please advise where you bought the parts for this connector.
  5. I wish I had. but unfortunately not. Maybe one day, I'll get back to it.
  6. Thanks, looking good. I'll be trying it out on a friends Getaway soon.
  7. thanks for sharing. this is a great step by step for anyone looking to build their own.
  8. You would just have to respect that ColorDMD do not want you to use their work product. Even if it is for personal purposes.
  9. Just looking at the power connectors for the LED displays. Are you soldering the wires onto the board after manufacture at PCBWay? If yes, then wouldn't it be better to have suitable through holes in the PCB to be able to solder the wires with a better physical connection? If no, please provide a photo of the other side of the PCB (with the LED displays removed).
  10. Thanks for the tutorials, they really do make it easier to get started with colorization.
  11. I thought I would start colorizing Scared Stiff: So far I have the attached done. It's fun but time consuming.
  12. I tried again with the on board USB and it worked this time. Wifi is all set up and connected to my home WIFI router. How do I use PIN2DMD.EXE over WIFI? How about PIN2DMD editor? there is a place in configurtion to enter the address, I guess this is just the IP address eg . it mentions port 9191 but i expect I don't need to enter this. In any case I could not get the editor to connect over WIFI.
  13. Thanks Lucky, Is there some info about how to connect the 232 to the ESP? I don't understand the direct connection part. The ESP I have is a surface mount part that is soldered to the V4 board. Do I connect to the RS232 pins on the V4 board?
