Well, did it work? It sounds like you have everything connected properly but I would confirm the position of the switches, particularly the time interval and for test purposes might try 1min- something you can see. LED's should be on for 8/10 and 9/11(page 22), if they are on in some other sequence this would lead me to believe that the board needs to be disconnected form power and allowed to reset, switching off a six strip with both pumps connected seems the most effective way to do this, also try using no photocell. Let me know all results. You can call me tomorrow between 10-5C 512-833-7546 and we will see if we can't get it, if this doesn't help. Also understand I am the only one here so if someone doesn't answer I am likely at the bank, lunch or customs office, etc and while I have an answering machine it works poorly. I have caller ID and make every effort to return calls, you can also PM me a phone number and an hour to reach you.
