thanks for a quick respons, i have tried plugging in a 5mm LED with resistor in series to the GPIO and succesfully switch it on and off and i also tried a Fotek SSR and it also work (the light indicator on the SSR switches on and off). The relay in question is similar to what you have in the description the different is i bought it off ebay not sure of the quality and mine only 1 channel instead of 4, but i had the same relay work with arduino before. So not sure what is going on here. I'll try the method you are using i'll report back.

Best Regards
