I'm not sure if it is this years controlers or the difference between the CTB16 and LOR1602. I have 12 LOR1602 which operated flawlessly for the pass two years with zero failures. I purchased 10 CTB16 because the LOR1602s weren't available and most of them have one and most more channel failures. Not sure if the board is that different between the residential and the Pro or what is driving the failures.
Does anyone know if or when the lightorama store will reopen for controller orders? It looks like they are selling what is in stock but not taking additional orders. Sort of has that liquidation/bankruptcy feeling since last year’s sales was in July.
