    NOTICE
    for those of you that are updating the SD cards to the latest image files

    all of the settings are stored on the SD card. this means that when you re-image the card, you are going to lose any settings that you previously set and saved

    when you power up the clock again, you will need to hold in button 3 while powering up the clock. continue to hold down button 3 until the various display types start to cycle. press button 4 after display type 'C' appears to lock in the display type (this is for the HUB75 [rgb] panels)

    NOTE: button 1 is the one closest to the SD card
    run-dmd white (resized).png

    after that, the list below are the setting changes that I made to the initial SD card images sent with the clocks

    settings that you may want to re-address after re-imaging the SD card
    ANIMATIONS - ENABLE ALL (scroll to this sub option and SAVE)
    STATUS LED - change this to 'disabled' (this eliminates that blinking LED on the run-dmd pc board
    CONTENT FILTER - change this to 'enable all'
    DMD CONTRAST - change this to 'enhanced'
    TOOLS - BUTTONS - change this to 'reversed'

    I didn't do the animations enable all this time and I'm seeing the new ones so maybe not needed?

    when you power up the clock again, you will probably have to power it up while holding in button 3, and then press button 4 after display type 'C' appears

    DMD CONTRAST - change this to 'enhanced'
    TOOLS - BUTTONS - change this to 'reversed'

    Just an additional note: When you power up the clock for the first time after re-imaging the SD card, remember button 3 will really be button 2 and button 1 will be button 4 until you go in to the TOOLS menu and set to "reversed". I learned this the hard way.

    #104 2 years ago

    button 1 is still button 1 and so forth, but you have to remember that the run-dmd pc board is installed upside down (and backwards if we're going to get technical so that you can access the buttons from the bottom of the clock.

    I did this because as a large, walled mounted device, it made more sense to give everyone access to the menu options without having to stand on a step ladder or take the clock down off of the wall to access the buttons

    I just found out about these cool clocks from a friend who is a happy customer. How did I miss these...multiple times?!? Please add me to your list for the next run!

    2016.dec.05 update
    I'm still waiting for the final 5 people on the lists to complete their transaction or provide me with an update

    if I do not receive payment or a reply by the end of business (5pm EST) this friday, dec 09 I will release those clock(s) and make them available to others that have expressed interest

    #107 2 years ago

    two days to go. if payment and/or valid communication isn't received from:
    2Kaulitz, lurch, egiblet and Tony1312

    those clocks will be offered up to:
    attack7, Pinzilla, Pocketchange, bigarn

    based on this and past batches, going forward the clocks will be simply produced and offered up for a speedy transaction. I'm kind of done with all of these people who state that they want something and then do not have the common courtesy to reply back to any pm's (even if it's just to let me know that they are no longer interested

    #108 2 years ago

    Common guys, give j_m_ the courtesy of a PM.
    People understand life events and changing situations and priorities. But he's put lots of ingenuity, time and resources ($$$) in this fantastic project; all for our benefit and enjoyment. At least PM him confirming or canceling your order.

    what type of SD card is best to buy for this? I want to update mine and would rather do that with a new card. If something goes wrong I can also revert back to the original SD card.

    everything that's currently on there takes up less than 200MB, so a 2GB one will hold everything just fine (and take a little less time to image

    Perfect. Thanks.

    2016.dec.12 update
    the last 3 clocks should ship out tonight (barring any unforeseen issues with the 8-10" of snow that we received last night/this morning

    going forward, I've decided to reduce the headaches on my end by ordering all of the components
    once everything is received, assembled and boxed up, I will create a thread offering up [x] number of ready to ship clocks

    in the past batches, I thought that it was a good idea to try and gather everyone's mailing info [ahead of time] to save a step and gauge demand, but in reality, I think that [I ended up creating] an unnecessary gap between collecting the information and receiving the parts for assembly. this, in turn, created an inherent percentage of people asking to be added to the reservation list, without any intent of following through and purchasing a clock

    #113 2 years ago

    all clocks have now been shipped. thank you everyone that purchased one. for those still interested, check back around the beginning of february 2017

    2017.jan.17 update
    parts are starting to roll in and everything still looks good to having clocks assembled and ready for purchase the 1st or 2nd week of february

    stay tuned and look for a new thread starting in about 2-3 weeks with purchase information
