  1. really? My tree alone is 800 leds x 3 channels per led (2400 channels), i have to use a stand alone network just for the tree? that seems odd
  2. thanks guys, i was looking for a similar topic by searching, i figured it would be a common question but didn't see anything on it, hopefully he responds but like you guys said, i don't believe either that 7 controller is anywhere near the limit of 1 universe/network
  3. Hey guys, I have been adding some more to my show and thinking ""at what point do i add a 2nd network""? Is this a logical question? Not sure what the max is using a USB485-HS with LOR Pixie 4's, 8 and 16. Right now I'm using 1 box at a time to setup and test and but haven't tried hooking up all 7 at the same time, is there a max of what i can add to a USB485-HS? In my head i figure I'm good until i run out of unit ID's choose from right? thanks!!
  4. did you see this thread, theres talk about a beta being out
  5. so in my show i am building now in preparation for 2017 christmas, I started with the idea that i will only do 1 box and LED light windows to music, HAHAHAHH, this now turned into a lot of fun and i am up to all 6 windows, a 16 foot high LED tree (800 pixels, 2400 leds), 270 LED star, 6 spiral trees (540LEDs) and 8 leaping arches (400pixels,1200 leds) resulting in a purchase of: 1 - Pixie16 4 - pixie4's 1 - pixie 8 7 - 350W p/s' 1 - 200W p/s am i going overboard by having an electrician come in and install a sub panel outside with 6 - 20A breakers? 1 20 amp for each box i have assembled i calculated the draw and its high up there but mainly during a burst of white during a peak of a song, then for the most part all the lights are blinking so i know they only draw a few amps during that time i know this is kind of a generic "do what you feel is right" question but wanted your guys opinion and ideas on how all of you are wiring electric for shows with this amount of boxes
  6. anyone? Bueller? lol
  7. wow, thank you so much for that info, makes perfect sense AND would explain why last night i was getting random flashes of green when others where whit and with fast stroking it seemed like there were delays on some pixels also i know the voltage is most likely a little different between p/s1 and 2, I always measure the voltage first when i build a new box before i plug in the Pixie board to make sure its not too much to damage it and it always reads between 12.2-12.5 volts between different power supplies
  8. thanks, ill reconnect them on the trees, i hope i left enough sick in the wire to strip and add
  9. so on each strip pixel connect the ground back? i did connect the grounds between the power supplies too as per another diagram
  10. after I fix this I wondered if I should've left the ground connected and only cut the + I have a tree with 100 nodes tied to it, The data line runs the full length of output 1 on a pixie 8 but at the 51st pixel I cut the + and - and with my second 12V p/s I injecyrd power at node 100 to feed 51-100. Is this ok or should I have left the ground connected too and only cut the + after node 50? here is a sadly drawn pic of the string of lights, pixie 8 and 2 power supplies https://www.dropbox.com/s/knrvt5bvo143h3n/INJECT.jpg?dl=0
  11. damn, i want to, i must have missed it, where did it post?
  12. are you saying i sit around all day? LOL JK I can easily get my fans to kick on, set all 6 trees to all white and the fans come on in 5 seconds
  13. i thought they sucked out, when they kick in the air if blowing against my hand
  14. if we got like a foot where the boxes would be covered i would just kill the power for a night or 2 till it melted and i checked for water possibly getting in
