    I have my 2801DC15 connected to a Pi.


    When the lights are changing a lot, the lights flash white.


    I have tried connecting pixels and it doesn't happen to them.

    I'm not sure what to look for in the video as I don't know what's meant to be there and what isn't. Driving the pi in bridge mode with data coming from da_e131 is what I'd be doing as an initial test.

    I am using the Pi in bridge mode with signal coming from E1.31.


    The rainbow effect (XLights butterfly) is what should be there.
    The flashes, which don't show up too well, are not supposed to be there.

    Have you tried and can you try da_e131. As it's an easily controlled signal source it makes it easier to chase down problems.

    Yes.
    I have tried that.
    I will record a slightly better video in a minute, with data from DA_E1.31.




    The Pi is running OLA.
    I have considered changing it to FPP, in either bridge or remote mode, but FPP uses OLA to output the pixel data.
    If you think it could be the problem, though, I can try FPP.
