Having an issue with the remote and the reciever, i think... anyway i installed under cabinet lights having the transformer and reciever under the sink in the cabinet. 3 #18/4 awg lvt for each run to the cabinet lights where i butt spliced to a 4 conductor black green red blue snap strip where i clip into the led strip light itself ( black to 12vdc+, red to red green to green and blue to blue). In the cabinet i cut the reciever from the led strip light it came with and was manufacturered spliced to. I then spliced the 4 conductors from the reciever to the #18 lvt conductors going to the under cabinet lights (black to black which is the 12vdc +, reds to red, green to green , blue to blue.

The issue i have is that the remote corresponding colors i press, do not match what the led strip lights light up to be. (White = purple, green = nothing , red is red, some work some do not. Thoughts?

Double checked the splices at the led tape, i should prolly double check under the cabinet again, now tht i think of it one could be off not creating the green. Just didnt have time check at the end of the day. I did not check to make sure the tape was fine before i cut it to make the splice... that was my mistake lol. But ive done this before without the rgb color strip and its worked everytime. Could harmonics play a factor? I have the lvts coming into a 2 gang box with the line voltage receptacle, i did not put in a metal divider between the 2 cuz i didnt have one..

Good deal you fixed it. RGB strip lighting is fun to play with. Best practice it to solder all your low voltage leads and run some shrink sleeve over your splices. Lot's of good u-tube videos on how to make splices.
