    If you are looking for CCR replacements to replace the internal strip of bad CCRs, the two things you have to match exactly are the controller chip and the voltage. CCRs were out long before the 2811 existed, so it's going to be an older vintage chip that they designed their controller to run. I don't own any CCRs, but assume they are 12V.

    I have seen discussion that LOR wires their R, G, and B channels in a different order. But that just means you have to move the wires around to match LOR's 3-channel assignments.

    Let me do some checking on DIYC .. That's where the discussions have taken place.

    If you are just looking to go with strips that are like the CCRs, then there are quite a few choices. The important thing is to get at least IP67 which is like the CCRs with the loose strip inside the silicon jacket. IP68 is better with fully gel filled jackets.

    the 2811 will run with the 68x line of controllers id stay with the 12 volt ones the 2811 is plenty bright just like the ccr jus order the rgb orientation you want whether rgb ,grb,brg, ect i have done a side by side and thay look the same.

    The controller Mike is talking about is from SanDevices. They make a 4 output version and a 16 output version. Once you know how many strips you want to buy then you need to plan the power. 12v pixel strips cost a little more but you can get away without having to inject power back into the far end. 5V strips usually need power injecting. Lastly you need to plan how the wiring will be organized .. such as will you used pigtails on the controller and how long will your extension cords need to be. Once you get all this then you can make a purchase list. It's always good to have others review your purchase list to make sure you don't leave anything out.

    The SanDevices controllers can be purchased low cost as a kit or fully wired. And they even offer a fully designed version mounted in a box with everything you need (at premium cost) ..
