Pixels lagging with SmartReceiver v2

Hello, I am brand new here so let me know if I need to do include anything else.

So the primary issue I am having is with pixels lagging during playback in either xLights or xScheduler. I am running an F48 with 2.55 Firmware. I have most of my show with V1 white boards and a few new props with the new V2 boards, all in "dumb mode". All of my V1 boards are running nominally, however, pixels on the V2 boards have constant stuttering. I have used multiple power and data cables to eliminate those as possibilities.

Any help or guidance to resources would be appreciated!  :D

I would get your firmware up to 2.59.  I did not see any specific fixes listed that addressed this, but 2.59 has resolved a few issues.  I have dozens of these boards and not seeing any lag.  In fact, I have a 32 strand megatree with the first 16 strands attached to the controller, and the next 16 attached to two different SR boxes.  I was a little worried there would be lag, but everything plays just fine.

Have not seen anyone else mention lag issues.  You could try putting them in smart mode and see if that makes a difference.

Firmware updated to 2.59. Xlights updated to the current version. Same issues  :(

Test on both the differentials and the main board are fine with no lag so I'm now assuming it's either xlights, the network, or my computer. We have a separate computer where the only thing on it is xlights, chrome, and whatever junk it came with. The network is a separate Linksys AC1900 router with a built-in switch. The computer is a current mid-range Lenovo bought this year.

I think my next move is going to be digging out an old Raspberry Pi and testing to see if FPP has the same issues.

I really appreciate the help! ;D
