Mess

I must agree..they worked so well in the garage prior to going on..nothing got damaged and everything looks great in regards to the install..
Just sent the seller a note explaining what has happened, hopefully they can get me another set sent right away...thanks

Are you using an IR (Infra Red) Controller, or an RF Controller?

Sunlight can, under certain circumstances, interfere with the operation of an IR controlled device. You might try again after dark.

If you do decide to obtain a different controller, Post #1009 has a link to a relatively inexpensive RF Controller (#1 in the choices). And one of the links for this controller is for a US Supplier.

When I first got my lights I tested them as well, power was not supplied with my order. I went to radio shack, and bought a multiple tip/ power supply DC cable. At first the did not work??? I then realized the power was set to 3 volts. Switched to 12 volt and the lights would trouble flash. Problem was a 12 volt supply was o.500mg amp, for se reason it worked on the 9 volt setting. I went and got a new 12 volt 1.5 MHz amps ( long story short) one with enough power and amps to work properly. WOW what a difference, if your having a similar issue it could be power supply from TT. Did you cut off the Dc plug in and wire it in?
