Also, sir, your response I found was a bit ... rude maybe? You could've worded it a bit better. The clarification between controller types was necessary to me, because there was a confusion on language, at least in my perspective.

If you noticed, I was looking for his response. AND, IF I was right, then it would have fallen into the category as I suggested. However, it left room for discussion and clarity on his end. The clarification I provided on language was a chance for me to understand what he was looking at so I could better assist.

I needed the separation of controllers and then the terminology for light types so I could be of better assistance.

But I'll "gladly" step out of the conversation... since I'm of no use apparently. Oh well, I'll go help someone else. No worries.

Just a little misunderstanding in here. Typing words doesn't always convey what you are really trying to say and sometimes things are taken the wrong way.

Everyone's opinion in here counts as there is no one person who knows everything about evrything. I kind of consider myself an LOR expert (toot my own horn :D) but I have been corrected by others who know more about a specific matter, I am always learning.

Thanks for trying to clear things up lightingnewb and I am pretty sure that JR didn't mean to offend.

Yes, I meant no ill will or condescending words. Lord knows I dislike condescending comments towards others. I guess I took the "all of you" comment the same way you probably took my comment. Don't worry I don't wear my feelings on my sleeves.

I think the OP's responses have been very vaque.

I apologize and everyone's comments as stated above are helpful in their own ways. The OP just has to sort through them.

I try to help where I can.

Thanks for the clarification - I can see how we both could have taken it out of context. I apologize if I also came off as a dominant personality ... I'm not at all in such a place to be doing so.The knowledge I've shared and will continue to share has only been taught to me from people like you. People who are looking out for others. No hard feelings, it just put me off just a tad. Thanks for cleaning this up, I'm glad we could come to a happy conclusion. :)

I'm sure we all have a perspective to share.

I am glad this worked out.

Hopefully the OP can clarify exactly what he has. OP, if you have a box with 18 cables coming out the bottom that is probably an AC controller. If you purchased the kit you mentioned (new from LOR) you should have received that controller. It is only for Incandescent (the non led lights ) and the regular LED strands. As Lightningnewb described.

Good morning everyone, sorry about the delayed response, I had to travel out of state for work. I did purchase the LOR new and this is what I have; http://store.lightorama.com/shcestpa.html. I also got the TSO SD card. I'm also sorry that some of you feel that my responses have been vague, however, I am very new to this and am trying to explain it the best way I know how. I want to start out with the DUMB RGB's as it sounds like it would the easiest for me to dabble in. I am looking to use LED's on my house, and will need to cut different sizes to fit different areas, as well as adding some lengths together, as some of the places I would like to use them are over 16' long. Where I am confused it how to do this, I know that I will need a separate controller in order to run the RGB's and each area (over 50') will need it's own power supply. And that is about all I know, I'm not sure how to use or what kind of controller that I will need, and how it all works together with the power supply and attaching it all to the LOR system. I'm in no way a tech guy, and am becoming more and more confused by trying to research it online. I hope that this clarifies things and kinda of gives you an idea of what I am looking for. If you need more clarifying questions, let me know. I also what to thank you all for taking the time to help me.

The easiest way to add dumb RGB is to use LORs CMB24D as it plugs directly into the LOR network. It will give you the possibilty run 8 different strings and is easy to assemble. You need to purchase the CMB24D from LORs store, an enclosure and a power supply. I am not sure if they still sell one already assembled but they are pretty easy to put together.

++ Mr Ps answer

IMHO go with 12V strings because you can get longer LED runs before hitting the 4 AMP per RGB connector port limit. 32' is easy doable (you might squeeze more: Calculate the WHITE (all on) current. Since these are DUMB RGB, you can feed them in the middle, like "T" and reduce voltage drop artifacts.
