    I just wanted to say, the picture of your controller really impresses me. I'm obsessive about neat wiring, and just love your layout. What connectors are you using to pop out of the box, for both the pixel wires and Ethernet?

    It looks like you have it wired to the neg side. Shouldn't it be on the pos side.

    I was just finishing hanging and connecting everything .I had all the lights on and just about to connect the last string . there was a sizzle. a connection burnt at the rectifier(which was properly soldered.the + wire burned off the rectifier).now,nothing works. no lights no nothin. no blackening or smoke smells from the renard box. I tried the outlet and its working .but no lights work. I restarted my vixen program and still just nothing is working . I looked at the 2 fuses in the box and they look fine.
    please help me guys.im freakin out a little here.

    Unplug all strings and get the volt meter. Grab your renard instructions and check for proper voltages on the board. Pull the pic if you haven't. Once you verify voltages, flash the pic and see if it takes it. Put it back in and do a all on sequence without lights. Verify voltage at each output.

    It looks like you might have a SS24. The wiki has the information but it was easier to find my way there from google.

    If you have a different board, post back and someone will point the way.

    thanks very very much. it was dark when it happened and I was in a bit of a state. I was using a crummy old flashlight to see in the box. as it happens,i think it is just a matter of replacing a 10A fuse.
