    GS8208 12V pixel strings - A wildcard third option for the 5V vs 12V WS2811 question?

    Can someone test them using the ESP V4 software. It should support them.

    ESP V4 DOES support the SD card and functions as an FPP Remote device.

    ESP32 Controller - Compatible with WLED and ESPixelstick(unify) firmware

    Are you planning to produce these boards? If so I can add you to the supported platforms list that works with the flashtool

    Very Nice. Also, if you want to reduce the lag on the ESPs to zero, you use V4 and run them in FPP Remote mode. That reduces your network traffic to almost nothing and by extension the lag you were experiencing. Just put an SD card with the fseq files on it into the ESP and go.

    Quinled users?

    FYI: Last week I added support for four QuinLED boards for the ESPixelStick V4 software. It will be in the next beta drop.

    I personally will not be able to purchase any of them at this time (out of xmass budget at the moment). Hence my request for someone to test them. My logic analyzer tells me I am sending the correct data but there is nothing like a test with real pixels.

    I have it working on the ESPixelStick V4 software as an optional output type. You have to turn it on in the build process to make it available. Yes the ESP can handle the higher speed, Also not sure if the difference between 800Khz and 1Mhz is going to change the environmental noise all that...

    Looking at adding 1Mhz GS2808 support to ESPixelStick V4. Would anyone be able to test it?

    An additional thought on these things. If you use the 1Mhz mode then the number of pixels per frame at a given frame rate goes up by 25%

    What's your prefered choice of pigtail?

    There is a down side to using the oil. It gets on your hands (unless you use rubber gloves). Whether using gloves or not, it finds its way all over you. It stings when you get it in your eyes and does not taste good if you did not wash well enough. Smell is not too bad, kind of sweet. Oh, I lose...

    What's your prefered choice of pigtail?

    My worst case is a connection that was wrapped in a plastic bag to keep water out. It allowed water in and condensation to build. There is a little pool of water at the bottom of the bag. Just to see what would happen, I have left the bag with water and my connector in it for four years so far...

    I put some Corrosion-X gun oil on the contacts and yes they sit open and get wet. no water related failures. They do have a finite number of insertions. Martin
