  1. Note that unless you are wanting to drive DMX lights off of a LOR network, you DO NOT need to use an iDMX. Since the original poster said he has E1.31 controllers, he would most likely use a DMX output from one of his E1.31 controllers
  2. As long as the lights are DMX, LOR can control them. I'm not sure I understand what you mean by setting up scenes. Sent from my phone using Tapatalk, so blame any typos on Android!
  3. Yea, stuff has changed A LOT! Played with an Apple 2 first and some early Radio Shack computer, then my room-mate bought an original IBM PC right after they came out. My first computer was an Amiga 1000, then later an Amiga 2000. First PC clone was in the late 90s. The Amiga 1000 had 1MB of RAM and I paid $115 per megabyte to add two more. My server today has 48GB of RAM. I have not looked at either and also have no plans to do so.
  4. Yes, the Red USB-RS485-HS is RS-485 (hence the RS485 in the name). RS-485 can be used for DMX or LOR protocol. For the technically curious, RS-485 is the electrical standard, LOR or DMX are data protocols that are in this case carried over an RS-485 signal. DMX is also commonly carried over ethernet in a protocol called E1.31. When using E1.31, the LOR show computer generates DMX data, but encapsulates that data in ethernet frames rather than a RS-485 data stream.
  5. First of all, I big thank you for all of you who have served. For me, I was attempting to get an appointment to Annapolis in the mid 70's, but my eyes got bad enough that I would have failed the physical when I was in 10th grade. Then talked seriously with a Navy recruiter in 12th grade, but ultimately did not go that route. I have often wondered how my life would have been different if I had joined the Navy. It is in my blood a bit. My dad made 26 trips across the Atlantic as crew of a troop transport ship (read that as un-escorted, high value target) in the Coast Guard during the latter portion of WW2, and then the Navy reserve after the war. Got called up for two tours on a destroyer during Korea.
  6. Hopefully Mr. P's explanation has it figured out for you. For whatever it's worth, I sequence EVERYTHING in SuperStar. Currently I have the 40 CCR license level for SuperStar which lets me export 6,000 channels. My current 2017 layout uses 5,643 channels, but there will be more channels this year, so I am expecting that a SuperStar upgrade is in my plan this year. I have never even looked at Xlights, and never have figured out how to use do anything useful with PE.
  7. Take a look at this page: http://www1.lightorama.com/sequencing-suite-software/ This will give the comparison for the LOR software levels. With the pixel controllers, the number of controllers is a little confusing because a single physical controller may very well have more than on controller ID. It's the number of controller IDs that matter. As Mr. P pointed out, your Pixel controllers will use 20 IDs so the advanced or Pro level license will be required. You asked about CCR X amount. Are you asking about SuperStar? If so, I can explain that as I use SuperStar for essentially all my sequencing.
  8. Happy Birthday Dennis. I just turned 58 last month.
  9. Except for a handful of lights, everything I have is RGB - both year round and Christmas. PM sent with my phone number. BTW, you list your location as Co. That's rather ambiguous. Can I guess that you're not in Columbia? I would suggest that you update your profile with a little better location. Trust me on this, it will help you in the long run.

    Thanks for that info Mike. We understand that you can only say so much. That much was great! Looking forward to the Beta when it comes out... I would love to get to Expo, but I doubt I will be able to
  13. S5

    Yep - When it's ready. I would not expect anything until it comes out in Beta testing. If there are people outside of LOR Alpha testing it, no one is talking (if there are such people, they are likely under a NDA). Based on my perspective of the S4 public Beta (of which I was quite active), it was a success, so I would assume S5 will have a public Beta - but that's just my opinion.
  14. I am also very saddened to learn that Kevin was closing down. Just this morning I received my package 6 files. Kevin does such nice work. I started using his Demented Elf Radio Network for my non-show hours radio last year. So happy with those files, that I ordered eight more segments of DERN earlier this year and then the package 6 during his spring sale. Had to make sure that files were worded so they were not 2017 specific...
  15. Export the prop and E-Mail it to me and I'll take a look at it. Jim at k6ccc dot org Sent from my phone using Tapatalk, so blame any typos on Android!
