  1. Power injection is not that big of a deal. I'm running power injection in several places in my year round landscape lighting,and there will be some more when I finally finish that project. And just because running at 12V vs 5V does not make you immune to voltage drop. I will happily tell my story about 30 feet of 12V WS2811 strips and the measurements I did that resulted in me adding power injection.
  2. Welcome to the world of power injection. Nothing unusual about this.
  3. Klayfish, although the show player or Sequence Editor normally sends Visualizer commands, you can send them to any other IP address. If running a remote visualization, you also have to set Visualizer to look at it's network adapter rather hang local. Quite easy to do both. In my case, I usually hang out in my family room, but my show computer is in the garage. The audio cables from the show computer pass through a sound mixer next to the family room computer, and there are amplifier speakers on that mixer so I can hear the show in the family room. I set the show computer to send Visualizer commands to the IP of the family room computer. During show season, I set Visualizer on the Family room computer to look at it's network adapter. That way if I start Visualizer on the Family room computer, I see what is running in the yard. I can also sort of watch what is going on in the yard by looking at the security cameras monitor. Just to try it out, one day I set the show computer to send Visualizer commands to the IP address of a router at work. I then set port forwarding in that router to point the Visualizer commands to a computer on my desk, and set Visualizer on that computer to look at it's network adapter. When I started Visualizer, I could watch my show at home 26 miles away. Of course I could not hear the show, so it was largely just to prove that it would work.

  4. Just one more followup to this. I have the server set to re-boot every Friday afternoon. On Friday St. Patrick's Day, the server re-booted just like it was supposed to and when it got dark the St. Patricks Day show started. My St. Patrick's Day show is completely static, and none of the interactives are included, so I did not notice anything wrong. However on Saturday, I noticed that the normal landscape show was stuck in the condition that it should be at the end of the startup sequence, but the two normal sequences were not running, nor were the interactives running. Logged into the server and found that the show could not run due to an audio problem. A little troubleshooting later and I found that the Windows Audio Endpoint Builder service was not running. Started that service and the show started working. I assumed that it had not started after the re-boot on Friday. Changed the Startup Type from Manual to Automatic so hopefully it would start up correctly after the next re-boot. The following Friday was my wedding anniversary, so I was a little tied up with my wife of 27 years so I was not able to check on it after the re-boot. However I was happy to note when we got home from dinner that the show was working correctly - yea!
  5. Wow, I see this is a six year old thread. Bob's suggestion of MIIP might be a good suggestion. I have used VNC for years with my show computer. works fine from either a laptop or my phone.
  6. In Visualizer, go to Options and on tab 6, verify the communications setting. For normal people it should be Local which will show and IP address of 127.0.0.1. If you are using Visualizer on one computer and SE on another (as I sometimes do) there is a different setup. BTW, just since I sort of mentioned it, if you push the right magic buttons, you can get Visualizer to work anywhere in the world across the internet (I've done it). Kinda cool to sit in my office and watch what is happening at home 26 miles away.
  7. Did you remember to put Visualization in simulation mode (the button that looks like a "Play" button on left end of the lower row of buttons)?
  8. If you go to: http://newburghlights.org/Videos.html and select the first video, there are five camera angles used. Two were a GoPro, and the other three were a Canon DSLR. The two that were the GoPro were the "closeup" of the pixel tree and star that looks like the camera was sitting on the grass (it wasn't), and the view that looks along the row of arches with the pixel tree in the background - that also looks like the camera was very low. The views farther back were the DSLR (yes, I know one of them was out of focus a bit). This was shot in January 2016 so obviously not the same new camera you are looking into. I will ask the guy who shot and edited it what the camera was.
  9. I will assume that you simply did not that it was down. Actual down time was almost 24 hours (confirmed on three separate computer all with different internet connections, plus my phone via both web page and Tapatalk). I'll remember that for future reference
  10. I just confirmed from the Help file. The Advanced Rendering Engine was released with 4.0.0. That would explain why you don't see it.
  11. Yes. If I recall, the advanced rendering engine came out with S4 (early 2015), so if you're running three or four year old software, you would not have the advanced rendering engine.
  12. Yep, full hard drive will cause all kinds of issues. Time to do some housecleaning and/or larger/more hard drives. Fortunately hard drives have gotten so inexpensive that adding capacity is not that hard to do. Glad you got the install resolved.
  13. Sorry it did not help. I had not noticed that this thread was in the Pixel Editor section (I had just been looking at new posts on my my phone and it's not very obvious what section of the forum a post is in on Tapatalk). I don't use PE (never could make it work), so really don't know anything about it.
  14. Every one of the "euro" type connectors I have ever seen are righty tighty, lefty loosey. If you are trying to install the wires so that is not the case, you are installing the wires wrong, and that is likely your problem. The electrical contact is on the side of the connector on the opposite the screw. The screw moves the clamp part towards the fixed contact. I have seen people who screw the clamp part all the way down which leaves a nice gap to put the wire into on the screw side of the clamp. Then when you screw the clamp back "up" it will sort of hold the wire, but it is not making contact with the electrical contact. It's little hard to tell in your photo, but in the second photo that has the connector with the DVM probes connected it looks like the problem are on the screw side of the movable clamp.
  15. Thanks for the reminder = had a REALLY busy weekend. http://www.landolights.com/main/component/option,com_remository/Itemid,54/func,select/id,20/
