Weird Text Output to P10s

I have a weird problem with my P10 panels.  Last year I used these panels with the same settings and everything worked flawlessly.  This year I am noticing that anything that has text is not being displayed correctly.  In additional to displaying the normal text, it's as if the text is also shifted 2 rows of pixels down which then make the text look like a blob.  Oddly enough anything aside from text displays correctly.  I would expect that if I had the shifting of the rows that nothing would output correctly.  The only thing that changed from last year to this year is that I upgraded FPP.  Intuition would say to just reverse the upgrade back to 5.x but I am hoping to avoid having to do that.

Text size seem to make no little difference with the exception of some text numbers that are set to 95 to display a countdown.  Those are clearly visible.  Text that is set to 26 is practically unreadable.  I have played around with some of the settings (Output by Rows, changing the type of panel, etc.).  None of that made any difference

It's daytime right now so I cannot provide a picture but will provide one later.

Check your panel interleave settings.  I was having issues with text and settled on "8 pixels flip rows".   Messing around with that setting doesn't hurt anything, as far as I can tell.  


Double check the voltage as well.   My panels get strange ghosting like that if the voltage is above 4.7V.  Unfortunately, the beagle isn't stable down that low so I ended up powering the beagle via a separate 15W 5V power supply to make sure it has a nice stable 5V and the panels can run at 4.6V.
