Please any help would be greatly appreciated. I have been using the wizard up to this stage, with limited custom script, but have recently installed a PWM expansion and would like to take over manually on the scripting.

Happy with everything apart from the PWM expansion atm.

I would like to set the parameters for the PMW expansion. My experience so far has been copy and paste. I'm guessing something like this.

ActinicPWMValue=PWMSlope(5,00,21,00,0,100,180,ActinicPWMValue);
DaylightPWMValue=PWMSlope(6,30,18,30,0,80,180,DaylightPWMValue);
CheckCloud();
ReefAngel.PWM.SetActinic(ActinicPWMValue);
ReefAngel.PWM.SetDaylight(DaylightPWMValue);

Instead of SetActinic and SetDaylight, you are going to use SetChannel(X, ActinicPWMValue) where X is the channel you want to set.

The CheckCloud routine needs an overhaul, too. What channels on the expansion are you wanting to use for blues and for whites?

This what I have so far mate, using channel 0 for whites and 1 for actinics. I also have acticics on 4 and 5 for moon.

I would like to use whites on the standard and channel 0, 4 and 5 on the expansion.

Thanks for helping me out mate.
