    I am trying to set up that my t12s come on a while before my mh and turn and then turn off once they come on. Reversely I want them to come back on again once the mh turn off. Has anyone figured this out? It is a lot silly they dont give you an option for it easily. If they have it where you can watch 2 floats why cant you turn things on and off 2 times in one day?!

    If you have a reef keeper (I think you do based on a previous post you made). Then all you need to do is configure two timers one for the morning on/off and one for the evening on/off. The "repeat" setting for each timer should be set to 0. Then just assign both timers to the channel you have your T12 on and set the function type to "Multi-timer".

    Long and short you need to set up timers.

    1. From home screen select menu
    2. Select timers
    3. Select Timer 01
    4. Select up or down to select days you want timer to operate. If you want the day make sure letter is shown. Press enter to go to next day. Example 7 days is SMTWTFS or every other day is S-T-T-S
    5. Select start time
    6. Select duration - how long you want it on
    7. Leave off duration at 00:00:00
    8. Leave repeat count on 00
    9. Leave oscillate Off
    10. Leave random on No
    11. Save

    12. Repeat steps 3-11 on Timer 02
    13. From home screen select menu button.
    14. Select modules
    15. Select PC4 you want on the timer
    16. Select Channel
    17. Push down to get to function hit enter
    18. Push down to get to multi-timer hit enter
    19. For Timer A select 01 hit enter
    20. For Timer B select 02 hit enter
    21. Select ignore on standby
    22. Leave stand by delay at 00:00:00
    23. Leave default to off
    24. Save


    That should do it. If you need more help pm me and I can help walk you through.
