    Reverted the "don't send color info on same color change" as in some cases it will cause an issue during turn off / clear led events as it might miss it due to WiFi packet loss and leave the Orbs on, gonna work on a better implementation for that but most likely gonna require Hyperion core changes as well as right now it's impossible to detect that reliably.

    Hello,

    a quick one - for area selection where is 0/0 and where 100/100? So if I want for example select 1/4 in the lower left corner - what values do I need to use?

    Basically you have 2 values for vertical and horizontal so if you want to only scan the top left corner it would be:

    Vscan: 50 <-- scan 50% of vertical screen space
    Hscan: 50 <-- scan 50 % of horizontal screen space

    Can invert zone if you want if for the top right one :)

    Btw for the Hyperion users there's a core change that will make sure it doesn't keep on sending when there's no new data, it's already in the beta branch :)

    What I'm seeing is that after about - 15 minutes proton will stop receiving data - when I "reset" it (either through the android app - with "LED Off" or unplug it) it works again ...

    blue constantly flashing. What I now have also seen that if you leave it it will come back and some sort of works of the last 8 seconds of colors and works ok afterwards again.

    Blue pulsing means it lost connection or was rebooted into listening mode:

    https://docs.particle.io/guide/getting-started/modes/photon/

    Could be a couple of causes:

    - WiFi connection lost (range / compatibility)
    - Heat or bad solder connection
    - Make sure to use the latest sketch

    8 seconds before coming back does sound like a WiFi disconnect so if possible would check the AP logs and if the AP has any multicast throttling / buffer options best to disable as well.
