namecipS Posted November 20, 2017 Share Posted November 20, 2017 I finished setting up my display this weekend. Got all lights and extension cords run and secured. I took a shortcut this year and didn't test the controllers before putting them out and hooking everything up. Of course when I went to test them there was a problem. I have 9 CTB16PC controllers daisy chained together. I opened the HU to test each controller. Problem is it only sees 4 of the 9 controllers. I'm testing the Cat5 cables today and will skip the # 5 controller and see if the HU will see 6-9. I noticed the center comm port on #4 and #5 seem to be very loose. I bought the controllers pre-assembled. Assuming the issue is not the Cat5 cables, could it be that I just need to re-solder the com ports? Different question. When linking the controllers together, do I have to use the Cat5/Ethernet com ports or can I use the "telephone" line port? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
