    Default Lights flicker from FPP output but not from PC

    I'm getting ready for my summertime show, its a small show on my uncles boats.

    I used this setup last year and not sure what's wrong.

    Setup.
    1-E682
    1-Rpi3 Main
    1-Rpi3 for 36 P10 panels.

    I connected a single strand of 100 pixels to output 1-2. In test mode from the E682, lights are fine so it appears the timing rate is correct.
    When I test from Vixen to the E682 with a simple "set level" effect of white, lights are fine.
    I exported the simple test and upload into the FPP, the lights flicker like crazy. Same thing happens if I just use the FPP test color so I'm convinced its something with the Pi. I thought maybe it was my network switch but I tried two different ones and the same issue. Also it works fine form Vixen through the switch.

    Here are screens of my setup. I know I'm overlooking something obvious.

    Make sure you close vixen before running out off of the pi player. If they are on the same network, you will get flashing.

    Damn...that was easy. I forgot all about that. I was thinking as long as I didn't have a sequence open I was good to go.

    The things you forget between seasons.

    Thanks,

    You can have Vixen open, but you have to stop the controllers in the Display setup.
