RGBW dimmer with 4 white led strips - problem with dimming





I'm trying to use the following setup:

- HCL running 4.11

- Devolo two paddle wall switch (sames Popp or ZME WALL-C)

- Fibaro RGBW dimmer

- four white led strips

- 24V power adaptor


I managed to configure everything fine with 1 led strip. The wall switch is associated with the rgbw dimmer. The dimmer output is set as RGBW. The wall switch is set to send on/off/dim commands. If I press the up button it switched on/dims up, if I press the down button, it switches off/dims down. Dimming is instant and smooth and perfect.


However, if I switch the RGBW dimmer module into 4 output mode and reassociate the dimmer to one of the outputs, the on-off switching still works. But the dimming (holding up or down button pressed) acts weird. It always starts from nothing and then dims up to full power. The same happens with both up and down buttons. So basically it ignores the current dim level and does not dim smoothly and correctly. Somehow the rgbw dimmer reacts to dimup and dimdown commands differently when it is in four channel output mode.


Anyone has any experience with this or any idea I could try? I tried (almost) everything and can't figure out the reason for this.
