Hi all, I have a basic setup and sequence. 1 circle, 241 pixels and say sequence is 2-3 layered 'single strand' effects.
It intermittently gets very jerky movements. The model/house preview on xLights is perfectly smooth. How do I diagnose whether it's my network output or if there is some output lag in my system?

Are you outputting to lights from the xLights editor?
Concentrate on the preview, once happy save the .fseq and use xScheduler to play back.

If it's still flickering it's probably a lose wire from the pixel controller to the strings.
After that I would then look at network. Particularly a WiFi controllers signal.
