Hello,

I am using the great BlinkM MaxM for my two-tone ambientlight:
http://flexiblestream.org/project/horizon
It changes its colors during the day and night.

On the I2C at the Arduino I have connected:
- 2x BlinkM MaxM
- 1x RTC

Everything works fine with two RGB-LED-Cluster (4,2W each).
But when connecting RGB-LED-Stripes (14,4 W each) my Arduino freezes! Not instantly, but after a while. Sometimes after an hour and sometimes after a few minutes. Every single BlinkM MaxM should be able to deliver up to 24W (2A x 12V), I am connecting only 14,4 W.

Has anybody an idea to solve the problem?

I am really distressed, because I like my new light very much. But it really needs more power, more brightness. Please help me.

Thank you very much,
Michael
