Nanoleaf Aurora light panels latest firmware update 3.0.8 is out. If you upgrade to this latest firmware Nanoleaf Aurora VD v2.0 will not be able to show VD main icon for effects anymore due to color mode type name "effects" changed to "effect". Even if effect is selected VD will have icon set for solid color. Other functionality of the VD remained intact and will function properly with this latest firmware.
