    Hello. Live in South Australia. I don't know a lot about this . We have a old Clipsal C-Bus system running on windows 95 installed Y2000. It has quite a few of those large black box dimmer boxes (11 in all). It has run well for many, many years, although I never have really needed to re programme it or do anything as it has just worked fine. I have had to replace a few wall switches tho. I cannot use LED's as they flicker and would like to. Recently some of the lights won't turn off and will constantly glow. I have made enquiries with several C-Bus installers here. They either don't have a clue of what this early system is about or most just won't touch it. Does anyone know or can help me with someone who has some knowledge, skills on how to fix my issues here in Adelaide SA.
    I have considered upgrading the system, 6grand to replace and do the work. Should I continue with this system and repair or go new. I am happy to stay with the current.

    Hi Andy
    If you would like to contact me, I can help with your system. I specialise in older systems and I often hear stories from customers (that finally find me) about installers like those you have described.
    My business is Goodwood Electrical and I am located in South Australia.

    Cheers
    Chris Morris

    Appologies to the OP for the sidetrack, but for a system that is arguably the most backwards compatible system around, I am continually surprised by the amount of installers who shy away from the older systems. Replace the PSUs and maybe a couple of other bits (In this case throw in some universals) and you are good to go!
