  1. Mike, THANK YOU for your response! I am going to hold off upgrading the processor. I have already split my LOR networks and my E1.31 networks up to reduce load on those links so I should be fine! I don't think my processor will be a bottleneck.... Thanks again! Scott
  2. Hey Ducks, thanks for the response. I was thinkng the same thing. My new "spare" PC has 8 USB ports, so I can break up my LOR traffic into multiple networks, and I put 2 extra nics in it to break up my e1.31 networks as well.
  3. I know that it will run an any number of CPU's and number of cores. But, I am looking to finally replace my REALLY old Show machine with a newer spare PC. It currently has a Intel Core 2 Duo CPU. Will upgrading to the Intel Core 2 QUAD give me any noticable difference in my shows? I am really not worried about sequencing, etc. as I do that on a different PC. Basically, Does LOR benefit from more cores in the CPU? If not, Will it anytime in the near future (1-3 Years) Thanks in advance for your answers.... Scott
  4. Thank you everyone for your responses! I do REQUIRE a small doorbell so I just ended up removing the existing bulb, and running an additional wire for the +5v to the LED. Works perfectly. Thanks again! Scott
  5. I would like to have the button lit all the time if possible. Thanks, Scott
  6. So I want to use a cheap lighted doorbell to trigger a few sequences. I have the doorbell working, and the interactive part all functioning, My question is how do I get the doorbell to LIGHT UP? There are only two connections on it. The doorbell is N/O so I could connect the +9v to one and the Gnd to the other, and it will light up, but then which side gets the INPUT wire? Or will this cause problems on the controller when the button is pushed (connecting the +9 and Gnd together.) Any help is appreciated! Thanks, Scott
  7. Just watched the vid. tonight...OMG I almost wet myself. Thanks MIKE!
  8. BOB, Thank you VERY much. That is exactly what I was looking for!!! Scott
  9. When I right click the control panel I can no longer select "Status" I used this religiously for many things. I have seen it mentioned here a couple times, but I don't see anything definitive. I am running the latest Beta, is a work in progress or Is this now gone completely? Thanks, ​Scott
  10. Did not work for me. I had a 40 which I JUST BOUGHT last fall, and it still shows up as 40.... UGH...
  11. Thank You Guys!!! This makes perfect sense now. I knew I had done it in the past, but could not for the life of remember how. The Chase tool method worked great!!!!!! I am in you debt! Scott.
  12. Hi guys, First off thank you for all your hard work. I really do appreciate it!!! I must be missing something, because even after Steve's steps, I can't get it to work, I must not be understanding it properly. I still end up with an arch where the entire thing turns from red to blue.... I am looking to go from red to blue left to right on the arch itself, but static. In SE, the arches my arches are top to bottom RGB channels 1-50.... HTH.... My eventual goal is to have my arches come on starting from left to right ( I have (6) 10' arches) gradient of ROYGBIV, but all on at the same time, STATIC!!! I hope this makes sense... Thanks Scott!
  13. Hi Steve, the arch is a group. I filled the first pixel(1) red, and the bottom pixel (50) blue for the time segment. Neither the "Fill Tool" nor the "Inteligent fade" tool work as they are design to pick up the adjacent colors horizontally, and not vertically. I am beginning to think this might not be possible?
  14. Hi Vince, The Color fade tool works Horizontally across Sequence editor (chaning as TIME changes).... How can I use it Vertically in sequence editor? (down pixel 1-50, but all in the same Time segment?) When you drag vertically, it just changes all the pixels from the first color to the second in that time segment.
  15. OK, So I am have a brain fart moment. I am trying to go from Red to Blue on an arch, BUT have it static. NOT a Chase. In other words, one side is Red, the other side is Blue, and in the middle the gradient between the two. I want this to be static, NO MOTION. My mind is drawing a blank on how to do this EASILY with the tools provided. (LOR sequencer and Superstar) Thanks! Scott.
