I wanted to say I am so far enjoying playing around with my tidbyt.
I am planning on using them for a custom alert display for my business.
The reason I liked the most is because it is hackable but it has a finished case.
Now for some info I need to get this idea into reality.
I went ahead and changed the firmware to a custom firmware I forked from GitHub - tavdog/tidbyt-mqtt: ESP32 firmware to control a tidbyt matrix panel via MQTT.
The main reason is that I wanted to have control over the MQTT channel, which is local and it needs to work even if our main internet is down. I have a local MQTT server.
I was able to sucessfully start playing with the code. It compiled and loaded just fine on tidbyt.
Thanks for not securing the bootloader.
I would like to reset the wifi manager externally and I imagine the blue button on the back is the easiest way to accomplish that.
Before I start opening the case and trying to find which pin that button is connected to, I wanted to reach out here first to see if I could get the pinout. It would be much easier and greatly appreciated.
