  1. solenoid to start projector

    Here's the solenoid http://m.ebay.com/itm/JF-0530B-DC12V-300mA-5N-10mm-Pull-Push-Electromagnet-Solenoid-Electromagnet-/142144337838?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20150519202348%26meid%3Dda8fdad852f34c32bc7235db62fa4e72%26pid%3D100408%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D25%26sd%3D172040037747&_trksid=p2056116.c100408.m2460
  2. solenoid to start projector

    The solenoid is 12 volt push pull I bought it on eBay for 6 bucks. It only operates for a split second pushing down on the start button. My projector needs a one push to start and 2 pushes to start. That's why there is no continuous current to it. Hope this helps
  3. I'm using a solenoid to automatically start projector at the beginning of show and shut down at end of show. I'm using a 12 volt solenoid hooked to a wall wart that is controlled by a single LOR channel. It starts with a animation sequence added to the start up in show editor. The sequence activates the solenoid for 1/2 second then continues for around 30 seconds , this allows the projector to start and ready to play video. At the end of the start up the Musical sequence's start. im still having problems with the first sequence not going full screen, when the 2nd sequence starts it goes to full screen as do the all rest till show ends. I think what I'm going to do is add a black screen video to start at the show so the 2nd sequence will go full screen. When the musical sequence's end at of show a shutdown sequence starts, When the shutdown sequence is activated the solenoid activates for 1/2 second pauses 1/2 second and activates 1/2 second then show ends and projector has been turned off. I set up the projector and a controller and tried it for a week the solenoid worked every time. I still have some tweaking to do a few older sequences have the same unit number as the solenoid. Here's a video of the solenoid bought off ebay for 6 dollars

    Thank you works fine now. Amazing how much difference there is in theirs and my way of sequencing. I think like their's better.
  5. Free lor musical sequence

  6. Is there a chance some one would share a sequence of God Bless the USA and Armed Forces Medley sequence. Since my stoke a few years ago am having a hard time trying to get thing time right. I'm running 132 channels and a 24/50 ccp tree. The tree is the bigger problem was hoping superstar would come out with one for the ccp trees even I don't have the globe on top I tried using the ccr can comverting it was not much luck. E mail Is tlhefner@bright.net if some one would have suggestions or a sequence they could share Thanks very much.
  7. getting a error playing media file

    Well after going though the help desk they had me thinking what I missed. So I started going back to the beginning and did realized since I had upgraded to S4 pro I did not go back into the preferences and check the full video check box. Thought just checking in the play full screen on the pull down menu would. Hope this will help will help someone else. The help desk is a great tool and I thank them for there patients
  8. getting a error playing media file

    the wmv files are in the default audio location in where LOR was installed. And looking for see if there are new drivers
  9. I'm really getting frustrated trying playing sequences with show player. When using sequence editor they play ok but when putting sequences in show editor and schedule the show I get a error with sequence, error playing media file. I'm using S4 latest version. on a gateway ne71bo6u laptop with 8 gigs of ram running windows 8 completely reinstalled, was having problems with win10.I made a few sequences to test with that are using wmv video media files. When in sequence editor and video is set to full screen the sequence works fine and goes to full screen but when using show player it starts show the video stays on the upper left top of screen. It plays all three sequences and repeats fine but when I expand it to full screen as soon a first sequence stops and new one starts everything quits and get the error message ,error with sequence, error with media file. It only does it when I go to full screen. I'm not sure if its programing or if its the computer video card not good enough to do this, The cpu is maxing out at 54 %. Don't know what else to try.
  10. Computer type speed

    I think I'm going to get 8 megs of Raman try to go back to windows 8 if I can find the oem software. I'm think I found this original software key for it, would like windows 7 but don't think the key won't work for 7 I do have old xp with the product key. Then update all drivers and install lor s4 so I and use intensity files hope it works better.
  11. Computer type speed

    When using show editor as soon as a sequence ends it's locks up. Is I put all sequences into one sequence it works OK but then I can't use schedule, have run it manually in SE. It may be caused by the video. Also intensity files might help. The task manager shows I'm running at 97% as soon as I start a sequence and only 11 % before. Lor is the only program on the computer except the widows installed stuff.

  14. Computer type speed

    Right after Christmas I was flash mobbed by the large group from town. They heard I was going to stop the Christmas display, I was due too having problems with computers and a few ccp,s I didn't want to put a lot money out to keep fixing thing. There were about 200 people there just filling basket with money to use. Not a lot but since cared that much it hard to not keep doing it. So what like is some idea what type of computer would be best to purchase. I'm using a gateway lap top now and using S3 software. Will be going S4 and starting over from scratch. I'm using a 6 ccp,s on a mega tree on one hs network and 8 pc16,s on regular network. Also are using video as media files projecting video on the garage door. Any information would be helpful, graphics card, speed, memory, what version of windows. Thanks every one lol going to be a long summer and fall getting it all done in time and learning S4.
  15. Ccb unit blown again.

    Just curious if anyone has with ccb controller blowing a circuit. I have a ccb tree with 6 units 12 strings over and back for a 24 stand tree. Have it all set up and working,last night tested it all worked fine. Today was setting up parts of display and unplugged the controllers to be safe. After finishing it all hooked the power the tree and heard a snap on one controller. No green lights on the bulbs on one contoller. I opened the contoller fuse is good but see a black peice,not sure what it is called, popped. Before setting the up all the controller boxes were checked for moisture,water, and taped the box edges. The controllers are mounted 18 inches above the ground then covered with plastic bags. This same thing happened last year and had to buy a new controller. I dont want buy another one if this keeps happening.
