    Added a new “feature”. I added a sACN viewer, both unicast and multicast. Check out video: https://vimeo.com/276646871

    Hi, that is cool. How difficult would it be to add a value for the time the packets arrived? By this I mean set a value for the FPS (e.g. 50mS), sample the first few packets and obtain a base reference. Given you know the sequential packet number once the reference is set you know how many 50mS have passed since the reference and can calculate if a packet is on time or how late it is. From what I have seen most lagging is caused by packets being resent and errors compounding, this would be a way to view this in real time.

    I currently have a delay of .4 seconds between viewing of the packets to slow down the display timing. I would think it woould be easy to show the average time for arrival. I will look into it when I get home.

    Joeytx,
    What exact ESP module are you using? Since it appears you are using an ESP-12, that means you have it on a carrier board or your using a development board like a nodeMCU.

    Any insight?

    I listed it on the 'Components.txt', but Google 'ESP-12F+Super Node PCB'. It the one I'm using. I really don't like to solder the ESP's to the main board, I like to be able to take them off. But in a production you could design the chip right on the board.

    I have added a timer that measures the time between packets.

    Nice Work.

    I am working on a version of this in EAGLE and at a minimum will get boards made.

    I have generated a 2 sided board using https://easyeda.com. If you would like to look at it, attached is a file you can 'OPEN' in EasyDa.
