Art-net glitch?

I am experiencing a strange issue when sending ArtNet via MadMapper. the setup is 6 ArtNet->pixelstrip controllers, each controlling 8x10m rgb strips. The controllers are setup with static IP addresses, and consumes 30 universes each, so 180 universes in total.

Everything is running fine, but there are two sections of strip that flickers when dimming smoothly, it is not a whole strip, but a part of a strip. I have logged the ArtNet from madmapper and I can see that the universes controlling this part of the strip is sending zero values when it happens.

When dimming smoothly it just turns off at specific intensities. Does anybody know why and how this is?

I am running version 3.7.5

The show where it is used starts next week, and we are struggling to find the solution.

Thank you for your help.

Are you sure you didn't activate DMX Input and have some DMX controls ? In this cast changing the DMX output would trigger changes in the setup.
Or maybe you have another application sending ArtNet ?
What do you see in MadMapper DMX Monitor ?
Are you sure you don't have multiple fixtures patched to the same DMX addresses ?
