I've been reading until I can't think straight, so just need a little direction. I am using a sandevice E682 and 16 smart string 2811 with 4 wires, of which its the positive, the data, and 2 are ground wires. I have some 3 wire Ray Wu pigtails that if I understand correctly, I want to wire one end of the pigtail to the controller and have the other connected to my SS, for ease of unplugging and moving controller and strings. By using a wiki page, I was able to figure out what color of wire from the pigtail matched up with the smartstring, so now that I clarified everything in my mind, 2 questions, the pigtail that attaches to my controller, do I want to be connecting the male pigtail to the controller, or female, or does it matter as long as I stay uniform? 2nd, what should I be doing with the 2nd ground wire on the smart string? Its currently part of a water proof connection with the data wire. Cut off the waterproof connecter and just not use the ground, or hook both grounds from the smart string to the ground on the pigtail? Hope this makes sense and I appreciate any direction, and if I am off base altogether, its okay to slap me down, this is my first go around with RGB.
