    While testing out my flood lights for the coming year, I noticed that if I do a run off them (turning one on at a time) the lights stop working. If I turn them all on white at once they work fine. If I do runs of any other color they work fine (oops, I guess I should say colour... :)). I made a fast video with my phone. Not sure why it came out so cruddy but it gets the point across.

    What lights specifically and what controller and software are you using?
    I started to download the vid but the 210MB file was just too slow and I didn't know if seeing it was going to help in any way.

    I don't think the link is working well from my cellphone. I will try and post more details tomorrow.

    I did send this question to David today. I am hoping that many heads are better then one.


    Here is another video that is shorter and slightly better quality.
