    if you haven't figure out how to add more time nodes to your setting

    Here's how your do it.

    make a copy of your profile you already created or create a new one.

    now open it as notepad

    move to
    Lamp Name="LED Module 1" Type="LED" Address="1"

    from this point you will see all 10 nodes listed with time stamps.
    now all you need to do is just copy and past as many nodes as you want in between.

    here's the example
    original
    Lamp Name="LED Module 1" Type="LED" Address="1"
    Nodes
    Node Timestamp="18000" Intensity="1" Color="9" /
    Node Timestamp="36900" Intensity="60" Color="5" /
    Node Timestamp="40500" Intensity="50" Color="7" /
    Node Timestamp="44100" Intensity="60" Color="6" /
    Node Timestamp="47700" Intensity="50" Color="7" /
    Node Timestamp="51300" Intensity="60" Color="6" /
    Node Timestamp="54900" Intensity="50" Color="7" /
    Node Timestamp="58440" Intensity="60" Color="8" /
    Node Timestamp="61200" Intensity="50" Color="5" /
    Node Timestamp="79200" Intensity="1" Color="9" /
    /Nodes

    After Edit


    "Lamp Name="LED Module 1" Type="LED" Address="1"
    Nodes
    Node Timestamp="18000" Intensity="1" Color="9" /

    Node Timestamp="27000" Intensity="50" Color="5" /
    Node Timestamp="29000" Intensity="100" Color="6" /
    Node Timestamp="31000" Intensity="100" Color="6" /
    Node Timestamp="33000" Intensity="100" Color="6" /
    Node Timestamp="35000" Intensity="100" Color="5" /


    Node Timestamp="36900" Intensity="60" Color="5" /
    Node Timestamp="40500" Intensity="50" Color="7" /
    Node Timestamp="44100" Intensity="60" Color="6" /
    Node Timestamp="47700" Intensity="50" Color="7" /
    Node Timestamp="51300" Intensity="60" Color="6" /
    Node Timestamp="54900" Intensity="50" Color="7" /
    Node Timestamp="58440" Intensity="60" Color="8" /
    Node Timestamp="61200" Intensity="50" Color="5" /
    Node Timestamp="79200" Intensity="1" Color="9" /
    /Nodes

    here's what have to happen
    the new nodes you added, the time must change to eailier, then the one under it.(blue highlights)
    the reason of doing that is if you want the nodes to be movable in the software. this is very important!

    after you edit the first, all you need to do is save and load it up with the ati software. delete other led 2-4 and copy the led 1.

    i dont know how many nodes you do, since i dont know how big the memory chip that ati have inside the ballast.

    since the file is only 8k, i bet you can add 1000 nodes without having issue. 1k=1024 characters. i dont know you want to that many nodes lol.

    well, enjoy the additional nodes which they dont want you to have, come on we pay high $. i think the nodes should be free

    i haven't play around with the custom coloring, it should be as simple as just adding more line to the index. since the ati software wont be able to read it, unless someone write up a program that can read it, then it's just manual edit. that would be kinda pita to do any adjustment unless you have photographic memory.

    timestamp scale is in sec for those who want to do manual edit.

    Thanks for posting. That whole ATI interface is lacking in many ways.

    yeah, their software can use a big make over for sure.
