Receiving Unit Options for P10 Panels

No I would never recommend trying to use a switch even if that Pi has a gigabit connection. 

First off the switch is going to cost more than a USB 3.0 to gigabit adapter.

Second the traffic coming out trying to talk to the color light is going to go everywhere and load down the network. 

Wi-Fi is an option if the fpp is going to be running as a standalone or as a slave.

I 100% agree with everything Ed said.  I only mentioned it as an option - not necessarily an option I would recommend.  I already told you how I'm doing it.

It really sounds like we need to do a zoom session to answer some of your questions.

This is how I've helped k6ccc Chet and a few others.

Do you have a microphone or a webcam that you can use on your computer?

Ed's been a great help to me and the zoom sessions allow him to see what I am doing or not doing.

9 P5 panels running off a matrix Pi cap, not a single issue.
