I am trying to implement FastLED_Functions example for an ESP32 on a homemade RGB-matrix 32x16.
The matrix is built out of WS2812 strips, that are driven by an Arduino accepting Glediator protocol.
So I am using the SmartMatrix3 for creating the matrix in RAM and my own ShowAsGlediator() that sends the pixels on Serial1 with baudrate 1000000.
The problem is, that as soon as I try to send the pixels with Serial1.write() the ESP32 reboots. So I suppose there is a collision with the SmartMatrix hardware (pins or DMA).
I am trying to use pins GPIO13, GPIO14 or GPIO33 for the Serial1 which I believed were available after studying the MatrixHardware_ESP32_V0.h
Is there a way to “disable” or remove the SmartMatrix hardware, so I do not crash with it?
I appreciate the time you are spending on answering all these questions and I hope you will find time for answering mine.
By the way - are you planning to write matrix rotation by degree-units (not only 90, 180, 270) ?
