Mine does not have a button for this so I am wondering if it is just the set I got or whether that has to be programmed via the DIY button on the remote.
As I understand it, the DIY feature is to create a "custom color" using the colored up down buttons and save it by holding the button down for 3 seconds. Kind of silly feature, IMO.
As to "chase" it is not available as to how the LEDs are wired. With a common ground leg and three "hot" legs (one for each color) the only options you have from the controller for each color is "ON - FULL VOLTAGE" ; "ON - "LESS VOLTAGE" ; "OFF."
To provide "CHASE" the LED sets must be wired so as to be independently controlled (2 or 3 grounds in addition to the 3 hots - connecting to alternating sets of LEDs).
