Note: Raspberry Pi, SD or micro SD card and USB thumbdrive are not supplied. Included in photos to show the application.
A Class 10 SD/Micro SD card is recommended and 8-32GB is the recommended size range.
The rPi-MFC requires a Raspberry Pi (2, 3 or Zero) running Falcon Player and configured with channels, sequences and channel output settings.
The installation procedure for Falcon Player (FPP) is below.
The installation process for FPP 2.x and FPP 3.x is different but is linked from the above link.
Updated manual will be uploaded soon.
Until the manual finally gets updated there are some screenshots of the setup in FPP 4.3
In some cases the EEPROM that is in the rpi-MFC is missing the information that allows FPP to detect that it’s a rPi-MFC connected. If FPP isn’t showing a Hanson Electronics logo at the top right of the FPP screen then it’s probably missing the file. The script and instructions to run it are at https://www.hansonelectronics.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/rpi-mfc-files-and-instructions.zip
