  1. RGB Pixie16 with lights from LOR - Testing

    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 -
  2. RGB Pixie16 with lights from LOR - Testing

    Thanks k6ccc - I will maybe look at SS next year. Cost and learning curve have kept me away from it this year. Really thinking converting all house lights over to RGB next year so I'll have to learn it. Any tutorials you can suggest? Thanks
  3. RGB Pixie16 with lights from LOR - Testing

    Hi all - Thanks to everyone's help on here I now have everything working and I've been working on programming the Pixie16 - 12 for a tree and the other four for arches. Using PE and saving the intensity file. Set up Visualizer file and everything looks good but I'm just wondering if I'm doing it different than others. Do most people program RGBs in SE? I wouldn't think so but I'm wondering if I'm just not getting something here? Also does anyone know of a good tutorial to show how to bring in xlight effects into PE? They have some effects I like that aren't in PE. Thanks again for all the advise /answers to all my questions. I'm getting a little panicked that I won't finish by Thanksgiving. 😀
  4. Pixie16 - Pixel Editor to SE

    So I bought a Pixie16 to add to my show this you and having difficulties getting it up and running. Have programmed the unit and the network - Have high speed USB and network set to match. Save the sequence and the Intensity file but when I open up in SE and try to play I get no lights coming on when hooked up to the Pixie16. In the sequence it does show the props that I created in PE but it doesn't show like a normal LOR row. For the PE props in the sequence it just shows a light green with some black diamonds running all the way across the row. Is this normal? Any ideas on why my lights aren't working? What am I missing? If I can get this working I'm sure I can get all the rest of my sequences done. Just can't seem to figure this out. Thanks, CampHouseLights
  5. Pixie16 - Pixel Editor to SE

    Thanks Steven, Jim and JR. Good news I've got it working now! Was a ID10T error! I had my units reversed from what I thought it was - I thought it was A0 and it was 0A. Changed it and the lights are working! Using 12 of the 16 for the tree and using the 4 others for arches. Now I can start adding these new props to my current songs and programming new ones. Would like to try SS but just don't have the $ this year for that - maybe next year. Still need to find some multi channel stars for my star bursts - any ideas are appreciated. Thanks again - Chester

  7. Newbie needing 48 channel sequences

    Would appreciate any Christmas sequences that anyone is willing to share. Jumped from 16 to 48 channels on LOR and added a Pixie 16 (50 node strings) so I have my hands full and would appreciate any help I can get in order to be ready by Thanksgiving! 😀 Thanks - camphouselights@gmail.com
  8. Pixie16 - Pixel Editor to SE

    Thanks Jim - If I play the sequence with the pixie 16 attached shouldn't the pixels light up? I get nothing when I play the sequence. If you can't see it there how do you see the display with all your lights - RGB and normal 16 channel LOR controllers. Chester
  9. 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
  10. Hey James - Did not receive for some reason. Could you please resend - camphouselights@gmail.com - Thanks
  11. Hi James - Can I get a copy? Thanks Chester camphouselights@gmail.com
  12. If still sending could I please get a copy of the the THE GRINCH! Thanks
  13. 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.
  14. RGB Pixie16 with lights from LOR - Testing

    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?
  15. RGB Pixie16 with lights from LOR - Testing

    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!
  16. RGB Pixie16 with lights from LOR - Testing

    Thanks Alan - this is good advise - I definitely will use Excel to keep track!
  17. RGB Pixie16 with lights from LOR - Testing

    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
  18. RGB Pixie16 with lights from LOR - Testing

    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!

  20. RGB Pixie16 with lights from LOR - Testing

    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?
  21. New to LOR this year - first successful season with just one contoller / 16 channels but everyone loved it! Have about 2000 led lghts but would like to add some more for next year. Like the look of RGB and thinking about adding a 10' tree - also thought about switching the led lights along the outline of my house to RGB. Have been reading a lot and I feel like I'm getting myself more confused with it! :-) What I'm really concerned about is power consumption so my question is this - if I replaced my current led (mostly C9 & C7 type) with RGB pixels how much more power would my display use? When I was using incandescents it would flip the breaker sometimes. Hasn't happened since I changed to LEDs and I've added more lights each year. Before I spend the money I'd like to get some more information from the experts here. Thanks, CambellHouse
  22. LED light strings vs RGB - power consumption.

    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 - 💥
  23. LED light strings vs RGB - power consumption.

    Thanks TheDucks for your advise. Will pick one up. Breakers are good - newer ones.
  24. Interactive play button on guests phones.

    So I have a question - and maybe I missed this somewhere. Would this also play the music through their phone? Or do you still need a speaker/FM transmitter?
  25. Roverdish - Could you please send - Thanks chesterlcampbell@gmail.com
