  1. I wish I had. but unfortunately not. Maybe one day, I'll get back to it.
  2. Thanks, looking good. I'll be trying it out on a friends Getaway soon.
  3. thanks for sharing. this is a great step by step for anyone looking to build their own.
  4. You would just have to respect that ColorDMD do not want you to use their work product. Even if it is for personal purposes.
  5. 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).
  6. Thanks for the tutorials, they really do make it easier to get started with colorization.
  7. I thought I would start colorizing Scared Stiff: So far I have the attached done. It's fun but time consuming.
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. I am trying to set up the WIFI with my V4 board (Nucleo controller). I have loaded the nucleo_esp_loader.bin firmware the same way I load the normal PIN2DMD software using the ST Link Utility and the USB port on the Nucleo that is on the small breakout board. The blue status LED on the Nucleo is on. I then move the USB cable to the User USB port on the Nucleo and run ESP8266Flasher.exe. I already have the St virtual port drivers loaded and everything looks good in Device Maanager. When I try to flash the ESP8266 I get an error: Note:Begin find ESP8266. Note:ESP8266 ACK success. Note:ESP8266 ACK success. Error:Read ESP8266 register timeout. Note:ESP8266 ACK success. Any idea where I am going wrong? Regards Steve
  11. My panels are RBG not RGB, so I change the sequence using the menu and option button on the shield. When I load a new DAT file created with PIN2DMD.exe (V2.53) the sequence reverts to default and I have to change the sequence with the buttons again. I have firmware 2.55. Not a big issue because as long as I don't change the DAT file again, but was just interested to know if I am doing something wrong.
  12. I could place the shield halfway between the standard DMD position and the extended DMD, then each of the 16pin cables would be about 500mm. However I think a more elegant solutions may be to boost the signals for an extension as suggested by Rappelbox. I'll do some testing with some LS245 chips and see what happens.
  13. Thanks for the replies. The VET6, looks good. I will look into that.
