  1. Got it this time JR - and I really appreciate you sharing. Not sure what happened. I did actually created a new Gmail account for my forum account. The original one was my personal/business account so I wanted to try and keep things separate. Sorry for the mix-up. Hopefully once I get this figured out I can offer to share some of my sequences in the future. Chester
  2. Hey James - Did not receive for some reason. Could you please resend - camphouselights@gmail.com - Thanks
  3. Hi James - Can I get a copy? Thanks Chester camphouselights@gmail.com
  4. If still sending could I please get a copy of the the THE GRINCH! Thanks
  5. Hi James - JR told me to look you - expand my display this year to include a pixie 16. Just not sure how to program it in SE. Would you have a Christmas sequence or two that would include the pixie? I think once I can see how it's done I can work on my other sequences. I would appreciate it.
  6. So now I have my networks all set up - Big thank you to everyone for your help. Have my Pixie16 setup on its own network running ELOR and the additional 16 channel controllers running in standard mode on their own network. So now I'm trying to program in SE - I add my new P16 and see everything - all channels when I drill all the way down to the lowest level so I think it's in right. I add to the sequence and it turns on the lights but I can't change colors. It's just white. I know I'm missing something - is there a good tutorial that walks through this or does anyone have an idea of what I'm doing wrong? Also is it ok if I create a 180 tree with 12 of the 16 and then make arches out of the remaining 4?
  7. Thanks Alan for the follow up. My fault my question wasn't clear. I was actually talking about adding power injection to the pixel strings. I would hope that the Pixel16 box was built to run the 16x50 strings without it or it would have said something about it right? I'm sure it's good - just me being over engineering as usual!
  8. Thanks Alan - this is good advise - I definitely will use Excel to keep track!
  9. Ok so now I don't feel so overwhelmed by everything - I appreciate all the feedback. Last question - Do I need to worry about power for this setup? On LOR website they said it was basically plug and play but other things I read about RGB say they sometimes need additional power. Thanks
  10. Thanks everyone for your help! 😀 Now I have a much better understanding of how things should work. Will setup the Pixie on its own - with the USB485-HS adapter. Two final questions - 1) I checked all my controllers and 1 is a standard CTB16PC and the others are Gen 3 - Will it hurt anything to have them all on the same network or should I put them on their own also? All lights they will be driving are LED. 2) May add some RGB arches - would they require another adapter and network or could I add them to the Pixie16 network? Thanks again for everyone's help!

  12. Ok so i think I'm going to try and set this controller up on my LOR network so I can create some test sequences. My question is this - I have some CTB16PC controllers running right now and bought some new ones recently. Now I have the Pixie16. In reading the instructions it sounds like I need to set up different networks. How do I know if I need to? I know it has something to do with ELOR but how do I know if my controllers will run it?
  13. Currently using standard LOR controllers but wanted to expand show and add an RGB tree. Bought the kit during the sale so I have the Pixie16 controller ready to go and the 16/50 pixels strips. My question - Is there a way to just run some test patterns through the RGB pixels so I can see what they look like? Or do I have to go through the setup and add it to my network? Thanks -
  14. Thanks Jerrymac - I have at least figured that much out. So on one of the E1.31 how many pixels would it typically handle. And this whole power injection thing has me confused. Plus all the different kinds of RGBs - 💥
  15. Thanks TheDucks for your advise. Will pick one up. Breakers are good - newer ones.
