    well, i'm back to my rectangle code working.
    It's interesting to watch a 5 dot square expand at a constant 3,000 pps (not 30,000).
    The square draws fine at first. But then you can see the scanner not able to keep up and
    it starts distorting

    next I adjust the color min/maxs

    i had to cave and cast all my dang array of struct constants
    SO MESSY!

    And when i close a DAC with EtherDream.dll, it is closed for GOOD
    I'm surprised nobody else whines about having to reboot their ed.

    no back LED at all after Stop()/CloseDevice()...
    And Jacob isn't replying to my email (whiiiiiiiiine).

    I have the latest firmware on it.
    Maybe I need a nonlatest firmware on it...

    I'd recommend you consider setting up your "image driver" to accept "commands" and store your images in defined memory locations, each mapped to keyboard key(s). image keys are input commands to display that image. It would make for an easier way to test and develop.

    When LSX software is used with the Etherdream I'm wondering whether it is likely that the DLL is kept open during the entire LSX apps session. I know when I've closed out of LSX that some ED leds are lit but I believe one is associated to Ethernet activity , bootloader and of course power. So Enet and power leds are always on. Mine is not connected at the moment so I can't confirm.

    I haven't encountered the problem with the structs you mentioned. I probably don't write code the way you do.

    By no means are you the first to have complained about the Etherdream driver and lack of development support.
