    P6 matrix panel ghosting with RPi 3 B V1.2, FPP 2.4 and Colorlight 5A-75B

    I am struggling top find the right settings to change on the Colorlight card to eliminate or reduce the amount of ghosting I am seeing on my P6 panels. I played with the refresh rate in the Colorlight LED Vision software but it didn't have much effect. I have also been unsuccessful in finding any posts on this or other forums that address the issue with a clear solution for this configuration. Any help would be appreciated.

    Try dropping the voltage to 4.8 or so. I had to do that for my P5s to eliminate ghosting.

    Chris Pinkham made this video showing the Falcon player driving that board, perhaps he might be able to shed some light on it. On the surface of it, I'd think ghosting could be caused by a poor Ethernet connection or cable, or possibly the external electromagnetic interference. It's just a hunch and I might be completely off base on the idea...

    Seems a bit better but still there. Probably not noticeable from a distance.
