Hi, I’ve recently bought some strings of RGBW SK6812 modules. They work alright in solid mode, no flickering, brightness is alright, colours match but when fading or when an effect is running they erupt into a rainbowy mess. Not necessarily flickering, more like stepping. Subjectively it -feels- like a timing issue. White channel calculation modes make no difference.
- grounds are tied (common 5VDC PSU for both ESP and string)
- short (10cm) signal lead
- V0.11.1 prebuilt binary for ESP8266
Anyone else had this issue? Am I noobishly missing something?
Thanks for any pointers!
- issue is independent of power supply
- same with a different string (same supplier and type, different piece)
