  1. get them sent UPS or DHL, it doesn't add that much as a percentage to 10 or 20 displays.
  2. I had 2 faulty Waveshare SD drives. You may have the same problem.
  3. I find the getting into the menu to be a bit hit and miss until you get the exact sequence of button pushes sorted out. I can't remember the sequence off the top of my head, I will report back once I test it. But it is something like hold button 1 then hold button 2 as well then release button 1. if it resets do it in the opposite (buton 2, button 1) order.
  4. does that HUB75 connector look like it is fully soldered? In my last order of 10 boards from PCBWay, I received 1 where teh Hub75 connector was missing, luckily I had 1 I could solder in.
  5. Just wondering if there are any step by step instructions for using the V4 boards with the smaller and bigger displays. For the 128x 16 is it just a matter of using the 128x32 displays and putting the correct firmware on the board. Probably also need to sort out the mounting holes on the acrylic? I note on the EVO a ROM is on the actual EVO board, but I take it this is not required for the V$ setup.
  6. I just loaded this on a friend's Indy 500, Wow, the colorization is outstanding - big thanks and donation coming your way Slippifishi.
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. Thanks I found the MTA-156 series at Digikey, they have male and female versions.
  10. Hi Lucky, can you please advise where you bought the parts for this connector.
  11. I wish I had. but unfortunately not. Maybe one day, I'll get back to it.
  12. Thanks, looking good. I'll be trying it out on a friends Getaway soon.
  13. thanks for sharing. this is a great step by step for anyone looking to build their own.
  14. You would just have to respect that ColorDMD do not want you to use their work product. Even if it is for personal purposes.
