I recently uploaded code generated from the wizard and now my Aqua Illumination lights will not shut off and my moon cycle is gone. The Aqua Illumination lights are connected to the Low ATO communication port. I have selected the AI cable attachment in the wizard. I chose the parabola setting for all three light colors, 9am-7pm.

But my lights do not shut off at night. They stay on 24/7.

Any suggestions on troubleshooting this? I previously had code that that followed the moon cycle well for several years but my backup file is missing so I've had to revisit this coding process. Seems like the wizard is capable of handling the AI LEDs. The code below is generated by the wizard and compiles, but is it the code? Why will my AI lights not shut off?

Try using hard codes settings.
We can't see what it is inside your internal memory.
