    Default ESPixelsick 4.x and sdcard FPP settings

    I'm now testing the firmware of multiple props.
    All my props are using ESP8266 D1 Mini and my dense props like matrix and megatree are using ESP32 D1 mini format.

    One question and one issue.

    The question is, in FFP (on Rasp Pi) on the Multi Sync page are these settings correct?

    And on the controllers
    When I select the sequence, I get perfect performance No lag or skipping on the tree.

    But when I change the selection to Play remote sequence, The tree skips and lags a bit. Like it's getting the sequence through WIfi and not the card.

    Now for the issue. The ESP32 (D1 mini format) keep getting a websocket error and not the ESP8266 D1 minis. Could this be related to/causing the lag/skipping I wonder?

    what is the v4 build you are using? where did you get it?


    2022 - Not sure yet. At least two new songs.
    2021 New Tune-to sign. New 40x27 matrix at the house. Retiring the Strip based matrix. Updating some of the old window frames to the new house. Adding two new songs.
    2020 Full sized show reworked for the new location. Only adding (famous last words) 13 RBLs that I finally got converted to using pixels
    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show. Dim show (3000 pixels) had regular visits most nights.

    So you did not build your own. That version is pretty old and a lot of fixes have been made since then. I keep an installer with the latest version on google drive at the link below.

    Thanks Martin.

    I've download it onto my computer at work (just to have a look) Many more board options.
    I'll do the same tonight from my show laptop and update them all.

    What about FPP settings? Are the ones in the image what you would suggest?

    I use the middle setting but that is not really gong to matter.

    Thanks again @martin. I've had some success. I was able to install the firmware on all my ESP8266 D1 minis and the performance is solid. However, I can't get any of my ESPminikit MH-ET Live boards to work. It appears to upload as normal but there is no IP address being broadcast. Neither Xscanner nor Advanced IP Scanner can find them. I even tried an ESP32 DEVKIT V1. All these boards are using the Wroom32 chip.
    Any ideas please.

    Not sure what is wrong with your boards but they are not coming out of programing mode as evidenced by these log entries:

    21:17:54:
    21:17:54: rst:0x1 (POWERON_RESET),boot:0x3 (DOWNLOAD_BOOT(UART0/UART1/SDIO_REI_REO_V2))
    21:17:54: waiting for download
    21:17:54: ets Jun 8 2016 00:22:57

    Are you manually pulling GPIO0 low? If so, make it high and the ESP should boot.

    Yes I am. OK. I'll figure out how to do that.
