    Thats Right

    The Yellow is a gnd and is joined to the white wire.

    The connector is used as the data connection for the string.

    The two flying leads are used to inject 5v to combat voltage drop in multiple strings.

    Hi, all some interesting developments brewing aroudn the pixels.. If you want to contact me directly via PM or email, please feel free to, and i'll be sure to offer you some deals that will leave you not wanting to have the hassle of dealing with the interesting markets of china. Its a 'quiet' offer, and you'll have not agree not to disclose the details of the deal, but it is worth asking.. Strictly limited to the members of the Aussie Forum.
