    Hey. Hello. I am doing all the connection for the leds ws281x and my leds are always white. If I connect this leds to the other controllers, works perfectly.
    I do not know what can I check.

    I do not know if the problem is the hardware connection, or some configuration in the Hyperion. But I cant do that the leds do something.

    Could you give me some help plz.

    Thank you very much.

    I've had that issue when testing WS2815 lights when the NodeMCU supplying data signal was powered from a different power source than the lights. Best to use a DC-to-DC converter and power the data source from the same power supply as powers the lights.
