K8-Pi - Random Pixels on

I just received my Kulp Lights K8-PI, and I'm not sure where is the best place to discuss issues I am having with it, but figured this was as good as any.  This is a fresh clean install of the most recent FPPOS.  It detects the Cape just fine.  The issue I am having is that when I plug in a string of lights (tested with multiple strings and multiple ports) some (3) of the pixels light up blue.  If I go into any test mode the pixels respond correctly, and as soon as I stop the test, they return to being blue.  I tested the strings on a previous Falcon PiCap, and have no issues with them their, so the problem only exists while using the K8-PI.  What details/information do I need to provide to help with this issue?

(The pixels are 12v from purchased in early December of 2022).



It's on a Pi 4, correct?

As mentioned on the product page, it MUST be using master branch FPP code.   FPP 6.3 will not work, particularly on a Pi4. The DPI code was pretty much developed on a Pi3 so the timings work ok there with FPP 6.3, but on the Pi4, you definitely need the master branch updates.

Yes this is on a Pi4.  I will get updated to Master and retest.  Thank you.
