    Need more info. Is that an Arduino MEGA with Sainsmart SSRs? If so, what sketch are you using?

    OK. I think that I can help you, but I need to know exactly which sketch you are using.

    And when you say your board is going "CRAZY", what does that mean? Are you connected to your PC and running a sequence? Are you using Vixen?

    Well, I can't move through that code the way you posted it. But many people on this forum are using a different sketch. I suggest using a different sketch by Vixctor_PV foud here - http://doityourselfchristmas.com/for...th-Random-mode

    So this is the problem. Itís fine when itís on random. As soon as I turn on vixen it just goes crazy. Iíve set the baud rate the same. It just wonít play it.

    OK. First thing, you can't have Arduino IDE and Vixen open at the same time. They are fighting over the serial port. Close the Arduino IDE. Then open Vixen and try it. Are you still using the original sketch or did you change to the Victor_PV sketch? If Victor_PV, did you put the header value in the Vixen controller section?

    Where are you located?
