    Hey guys, I'm having an intermittent issue with a few strands of pixels and I'm wondering if its related to the speed I'm using. In the bootloader documentation from Ed he mentions speeds of 3200-4000kbps but I'm running 1/10th of that. I received a very early build date (Dec '14) before it was officially released.

    All the links to the latest firmware v3.4b are broken. Can someone upload these?

    Thanks!

    The correct speed should be 3200 or thereabouts for 2811 pixels. I have no idea how it could be working at the rates you have listed.

    All my speeds are between 1600 and 2200 depending on cable distance.

    I run slower speeds too, depending on cable distance.

    Thanks for the info guys. I believe in my early build the speeds were not calculated correctly and off by a decimal place so I'm running a little higher than everyone else.

    Request: Can someone upload their copy of 3.4b or point me to a working link? Thanks!
