  4. My 16 Strip tree had two ribbons go bad last year, lots of flickering. Instead of just replacing those two ribbons for this year and take the chance of different shades i ordered all new ribbons. I purchased 20 new ribbons, 16 for the tree and 4 backups for replacements so I know they are all from the same manufacturer. The other 14 that were still good got repurposed for other things this year and the two bad are used for cutting up into sections when I cut the bad parts out.
  5. I'd love this one travisgrenz@gmail.com thanks!

    RGB Colors Don't Appear As Expected

    I hate orange. Each year it seems like I'm having to tweak it a bit. This year I replaced a couple strips and found that the 2 different manufactures produce different outputs with the same color code. Had to just adjust while running the lights to make them how I wanted.
  7. I've been lighting this house in one form or another for 15 years now, starting with a static display, to a gingerbread house static display, adding a "Mr. Christmas" unit, then switching to LOR, using mini-lights, then LED, and finally adding in RGB. My show runs Halloween from early October through Halloween, then Christmas from Thanksgiving night to a few days past New Years day, typically running from 6-11, and longer when Christmas arrives. I've had only 1 complaint....well, maybe 20(??!!) from the same guy, my new neighbor. Most people tell me they can't wait to see it, that I'm a tradition for their families,they bring all their friends by, etc. I don't advertise it because I don't want the traffic....its for my community, friends, and neighbors. Anyway, this guy has told everyone except me its too loud, too bright, and too long, and its affecting his son's sleep. His son said it wasn't when I asked him, so human shield? He went to all my neighbors and asked if they would help shut me down, but they all said they loved it! He went to the homeowners association, and ....they said they loved it. He called the police 4 or 5 times....once I was outside when they pulled up and guess what? They loved it! He also sent the police to the wrong address, my other neighbor (who loves the shows), who is a police officer, so she had to go through internal affairs processing 3 times because a police car was dispatched to her house! On Halloween, we served hotdogs and beverages to both kids and adults...its a little party in the front yard. He had the nerve to come over and partake, but was mostly shunned because everyone knew what he had done. i haven't heard much from him in the last year or two, so maybe he finally "sees the light"? LOL

    Ports reversed

    It likely changed in Windows Device Manager (pain in the backside what Windows does with USB sometimes). You can use Device Manager to swap it back if desired.

    Success with One Drive?

    I backup to the cloud (Google Drive in my case - one of several), but would NOT run my show from the internet on a bet. Too dependent on perfect internet connection.
  10. Agree with Dennis. Power up the actual lights and play with levels to get the color you like. And yes, Orange is a hard to get right.

    Thanks Doug. That's what I had in mind versus treating One Drive like a backup and constantly uploading/downloading for different machines. I'm not sure I'm ready to load up LOR at work. Kudos to you, that's next level stuff ; ) This should also be very helpful for quick edits I need to make for those subtle issues that only we see and want to correct immediately.

    +1. No surprises that way.

    RGB Colors Don't Appear As Expected

    I find the easy way to get the colors you want is to have a set of pixels next to your computer on a small controller so you can actually see the color changing as you select colors

    RGB Colors Don't Appear As Expected

    I had some problems finding orange and purple but trial and error I got this; for orange try Red at 255, green at 25 and blue at 0, for purple try red at 255, green at 0 and blue at 255. Let me know how that goes.

    Ports reversed

    I been testing my system and for some reason the ports reversed. Last year port 4 went to and ran my 7 LOR Controller boxes and port 5 was my secondary network going to my pixel tree. Does the USB converter 485B remember ports? I had everything labeled, but could not get it to work until I swapped the Ethernet cables. Plugging 4 into 5 and 5 into 4. I even went into the hardware utility and tried to re-initialize each port separately, but kept getting an error. I may have caused it to switch ports during this process too. Does it matter if the ports reversed which may have reversed in my computer? I went into my computers device manager, then plugged in one USB485 (labeled port 4 last year) and it came up as port 5 which was connected to the pixel tree last year, then I went and plugged in the other USB485 (labeled port 5 last year) and it showed up as port 4 and was connected last year to the controllers. Then I simply switched the ethernet cords and everything worked. The Any other words of wisdom? Does the port numbers matter other than going to the proper devices. Thanks Jim

    All of sequencing is done on a onedrive folder. My default LOR folder is my onedrive folder on my computer at work, my computer at home and my show computer. I do anything in those 3 places, within minutes it shows up on all the other computers. Cant imagine sequencing any other way. It works perfect. Best part is I dont have to do anything.

    Thanks again. That's helpful. And I just updated my profile with the software version.

    Success with One Drive?

    My entire server is mirrored to Dropbox, including my primary LOR folders. I have run my show over the network but it can slow down loading between songs particularly with large files. I edit directly from the server, and have done so in the past on a non local machine via Dropbox and it works well provided you keep the same folder structure and contents on each machine. For the show, I copy all the LMS and LCS files to the local show machine drive, partly for speed and partly because I use MIIP to control my show, and it was more reliable that way. Just a note. If you use Compressed sequences and you probably should. If the LMS file is edited and saved, the show player will detect the change the next time the sequence plays, and it wiil recompress the file. Woks fine but there may be a significant delay while the LCS is written. By the way, it's most helpful to be able to see your software version in your profile when answering questions.

    Stop sync on any machine making changes (sync might be blocked by any access). Hopefully you wont have 2 edits going on.
  27. James - Can you please forward a copy of this one. jsheehan3@att.net Thanks
