I have a working WLED instance (running 13 b5 now, but started with b4) with a single 120 LED SK6812 strip/segment. Works perfect!
I want to break it into two segments, both 60 LEDs long. I edit the first/existing segment, change the Length from 120 to 60 and press the Save check mark button. Seems to work fine.
Then I press the Add Segment button. It only has the Start and Length fields (I assume the other things come later) and I set that to 60 start and 60 long.
When I press save, the new segment UI element goes away and a briefly showing message at the bottom says “You need to have multiple segments to delete one!”. Of course, I don’t have multiple segments and I’m not trying to delete one.
I WAS able to do this on another WLED 13 b5 instance (though I split a 64 LED strip into two 32 LED strips). Worked great and UI elements/process worked exactly as my other example - only difference is that it was saved off.
These are both on ESP-32 units (same exact model). Tons of available memory/RAM.
I’ve tried using other numbers (like 0-60 and 61-70) just to make sure there was no overlap, though the same numbering scheme worked great on my other, successful test case. So I don’t think it’s that.
The ONLY difference I can find is my problematic WLED install is using SK6812 LEDs and the other test case that worked uses WS281x settings. Can’t see how that would matter, but going through all the settings one-by-one, this is all that differs.
Any thoughts on what I assume I’m doing wrong when trying to split up my existing strip into two?
Thanks for any pointers!
