Ah. Change this:

Code: Select all
    ReefAngel.PWM.SetChannel(1,PWMSlopeHighRes(9,30,20,30,5,30,30,0));  // Blues from 0930 to 2230 on a slope


To this:

Code: Select all
    ReefAngel.PWM.SetChannelRaw(1,PWMSlopeHighRes(9,30,20,30,5,30,30,0));  // Blues from 0930 to 2230 on a slope


Check custom variables 3 and 4 for the time of the next cloud (either using the app or the portal). 3 is the hour, and 4 is the minute of the next cloud. You can either wait for that time, or change the current time on the controller to the cloud time to make it happen now. Just make sure to change it back. Helps to do a reset afterwards, too.

The dimming is working perfectly now. I am sure I will mess somthing up forcing a cloud event. I saw it yesterday for a moment and it looked like the Blue on channel 1 was flashing. The only part i changed was what is in the code 2 posts up.

Only channel 0 should flash. Are you sure the blues are flashing?

Between the flashes it is blue but only looks like the blue is flashing and the white is not present.

I can try if i am home during the next cloud. I may also disconnect the blue channel dimming wire and see what the result is.

The blue should stay the same. The white should slowly dim with flashes of varying length and intensity, like the videos above.
