  1. Check to make sure all channels are completely off at the very end in the sequence. Off for a couple seconds is good. That's where I would check first.

    Cord mess

    Since I make my own extension cords for each channel, I have the lengths right where I need them. Without seeing what you're talking about, it's kinda hard to make a suggestion.

    One more time, BACKUP!!!

    The best thing that can be said at this time of the year, but great practice all year. Anytime a change has been made in your sequences. BACK... IT... UP...!!!

    Dumb RGB Flood Extension Cords

    As Jim said, you can double them up. I didn't. Just snipped off the other 4 wires at each end. The cat5 was nice because of the coloring of the individual strands. Orange wire for red, green wire for green and blue wire for blue. Then used the blue/white for the 4th wire. Worked well and still working today.

    Dumb RGB Flood Extension Cords

    Been using quality (not cheap) cat5 for my 30 floods since 2012 and haven't had any issues.

    strobe light strings?

    Good story. I can add... when I placed my order with CLE for the strobe strands earlier in the year (while on sale), I got an email from CLE a few days later of a credit because I was charged incorrectly (and I didn't even notice). I was charged a cheaper sale price but apparently not the price they advertised and they corrected it without mention from me. Talk about honesty.

    Dumb RGB Flood Extension Cords

    I used cat5 cable for my 30 floods. Been working since 2012.

    Controllers not seeing each other

    I agree with Jim, now that I reread the OP. You could see 1-5, made a change or two then you could see 6 & 7. Sounds like a faulty cable between 5 & 6. I purchased a cat5 cable tester years ago and it's been a life saver in this hobby. But I still don't trust the HU.

    strobe light strings?

    Saw the earlier post about different gen controllers. I'm running 28 strings on V1 controllers and no problems at all. For those curious to know.

    Controllers not seeing each other

    The HU has always been a pain in seeing 100% controllers all the time. Have you tried running a sequence?

    gripper clips

    Larry, as Daniel stated, i've used them for years. Many are the same clips I've used for over 10 years and haven't rusted yet. I suppose being used only 6 weeks out of the year with some rain, snow and ice doesn't effect them too bad. And being they don't lay in puddles of water lets them dry out which lowers the risk of rusting.

    TSO Arches

    Welcome to the forum and this crazy hobby Kevin. There are many great members that can help with your request. So you have a pixie controller and CBT16 controller? Which controller do you wish to control the arches? BTW, we all started with one or two controllers so we've been there. Again, welcome. Tom
