Thank you for the summary and all of the posts you make on this board. I can say I read everyone from you and get insights from all.
I do have 3 Nextion uBITX, 2 v4, and 1 v5 with various size screens. Your comments as far as the Nextion devices are correct, and I agree that you should start with the stock stuff, get it going, and then start the upgrade journey from there.
Again Thank You!
