    Great news Jim , will the dithering to achieve 8-bit dimming with the 6803 pixels be auto set when 6803 is selected as pixel type ?

    Yes, right now it happens automatically as long as the string length is 55 or less. Longer than that and the flickering from the dithering becomes visible, so dithering is turned off for longer strings. At some point I may make it a configuration option.

    Jim,
    when I load 2.025 I an unable to get to the web page. Before I get the Laptop out, does the new firmware changed the stored Static IP ADdress? When I re-load the 2.023 firmware, My old static IP address works again.

    No the configuration should not change. Make sure you load the correct one for your hardware (E680 or E681).

    I have a pre-down-the-wire prom that I have to update to even be able to even do the down the wire update.
