I have 9 pi's running in my display and the version that was available before 2.5.3 worked GREAT and now that i upgraded all of my pi's I am getting inconsistent FPPD stopped on various pi's.  The only way to get they to start is to reboot the pi
Any suggestions

go to developer mode and you can select what ever version you wish.  Just add /developer.php to the ip address of the pi.

Thanks.  This works perfectly to roll back to 2.4 (or other minor version starting with 2.x but one can select the next level specifically
I tried 2.4 and I am having the same issue

What is the benefit of Master?

I mention it because I have 8 FPPs (Pi and Beagles) running Master and have none of the problems you describe.
I also am not using ANY flash drives, just the extra space on 32gb uSD cards.

I'm have 6 Raspberry Pi's and 5 BeagleBones in the show all running FPP V2.5.3 


The *only* one that has FPPD stop issues is the one that runs .mp4 video with omxplayer.  The log entries point to an omxplayer error.   All the other FPP's are rock-solid, including a P5 matrix that runs videos which are rendered within the fseq (not a separate .mp4 file played through omxplayer)
xLights and Vixen3 for sequencing / FPP for scheduling and playing / Falcon controllers for pixels / homemade controllers for everything else

I had one MP4 that I was using for audio and converted it to mp3 tonight and changed over to it after het show ran all nigh with numerous stops.  The stops are enough of an issue where I need to have a spare SD & USB available set up since I am having to replace at least one a night when the pi's will not restart.

I do not use any video, but my show is running fine with 9 remotes all at v 2.5.1.  I have auto updates turned off and I have just left them all at 2.5.1.

I run 36 video with no real problems. sometimes I loose the actual control of the lights, other times I loose the audio.  but this is not a consistent issue.

The version of the software is listed below:

Version:
I don't know the "real" version number.  But the Git Branch is Master and the Local Git is g9d954d.
BTW: every time I re-boot, the FPP reports that it's updating.  Sometimes I lose the settings I've changed: it appears to go to the default.  can that be fixed?  (I check the Blank Screen on startup, Force HDMI Display and Blank between sequences

Go to FPP -> Help -> About   and check the box that says "Disable Auto Update"

I also have a remote pi on 2.5.3 that locks up every now and then. It is not every day, just sometimes. not sure why.
I even swapped with a 3b+ and new sdcard and a new image. and it still does it.

I removed the MP4 and replaced it with an mp3.  I also expanded the sd memory and moved the storage back to the SD from the USB drives, and so far (knock on wood) nothing has stopped so far tonight.
I manually updated to 2.5.3 ..... I wish I would have stayed at 2.5.1 :(

I have a mix of 3 & 3B+ in my collection with the master at a 3
