  2. A few years ago Doug “Wire Frame Delights” made me a 6’ singing bulb. I never got around to using it and converting my show to RGB so about a month ago a member stopped by my house to see my setup and get tips. I gave him that to get him started perhaps with singing faces but if not it is still a nice prop to light. My friend Orville helped me out a bunch and never asked for a dime even though he was going through tough times due to the hurricanes. Always much appreciative for all of the help and all of the friends I have made along the way. JR

  3. Veterans Day is a time to honor American veterans of all wars. Each year we set aside this special day to remember those who have served in our armed forces. From those brave service members who fought and died in the trenches of World War I, to those who are fighting on the ground, at sea, and in the air today, we owe them our deepest respect and gratitude. To all of those that are serving or have served we salute you.Thanks,Wireframe D'Lites

  5. All of this IS GONE as of Monday February 17, 2020. It WAS NOT SOLD! I gave it all away to an LOR forum member in Florida that was able to come and pick it all up. I'm not going to say who got it, but they will let you know when they're ready to reveal who acquired everything. Why for free? Because it was just taking up space and collecting dust, I had an extra controller I no longer needed and had read about a person here on the forum saying they're going to need another controller to up their display. And I've had quite a few folks on this forum pass things on to me and help me ou

  8. OMG...today they added 2 big inflatables!!! 😄 If they keep this up I'm going to sneak into their yard at night with my LOR controllers, mini-Director, outdoor speaker, & SPT1 cords and rewire all their lights & props! And something tells me they might not even mind! 😄

  9. That’s a Homeowners Insurance Policy payment preparation. You just never know what may happen and then you will feel the wrath. I have spikes and all sorts of fun stuff to be driven into a skull that should fall on it. At Christmas most don’t get out so no worries. But in Halloween night , not gonna happen. I will be there to stop any child from getting hurt or worse. When you normally get and expect 300-400 and they come in trucks, cars , vans, busses and trailers and normally get out in 10's you just cant have that many at once running through a display, no matter how pre

Not the thread, this post.] In lieu of all the members I have assisted with setting up and configuring their pixie16 and the pixie2/4 and 8 controllers I am going to see if this will provide some relief to you the end user, myself someone who likes to help others and the LOR Help Desk who get a ton of requests at this time of year and the end user may not understand the volume of help tickets. Also more than a few recommended I write this up. So here it is. If you follow these steps in order you should have lig

  13. Only a slight connection to lights. I signed a contract for a new driveway in September with company saying they could do it soon. Well they missed soon and wanted to do it after I already had wires across the old driveway. Wires were too low for trucks to get under. Had to push install into spring.

  16. ***STOP UPGRADING TO S5*** If you are currently using S4 then please wait to upgrade until after this Holiday Season. Too many posts starting "I just upgraded to S5". S5 is totally different then what you are use to using and you will not learn it fast enough to run a good show this year. Run your show with what you have been using in the past then upgrade next month. This will give you a full year to learn the new software and work the bugs out of your show. No sense in going through all the frustration now and risk the chance of your show not playing. You have been warned.

  20. First I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all that have commented here. I am a humble person and would never have considered replying here but the majority of you along with many others will be affected by the following statement. Some of you already know this but some may have missed this. I would like to apologize for not sharing any more sequences at this moment. This is due to some members that have no morals, respect or integrity. I simply post in my opening "Sharing Sequence" threads that they are shared for Private Use Only. I even go to the extreme of including the same w

  23. Thank you to all who offered suggestions. I tried HD but they had variety packs. But it did give me an opportunity to identify the size. With that I found these on Amazon - Size 10 Silicon O Rings. Came in today and fit nice and snug.

  24. Currently the only way to control a P10 or P5 panel is with Falcon Player. Don't let that scare you. Falcon Player can be set up in Bridge mode which make it simply appear to be an E1.31 controller - and LOR controls E1.31 controllers just fine. That is how I am running my matricies. Falcon Player (also called FPP) gets installed on either a Raspberry Pi or a BeagleBone single board computer. Installation is as simple as downloading a file and writing that to a uSD card. There are a couple settings to do, but that's about 5 minutes, and you're done.

  25. In S5, if you have a sequence that has a Windows command saved, when trying to play the sequence in Sequencer, the Sequencer apparently attempts to confirm that it can run the Windows command. It does not actually run the command as far as I can tell, but tries to. That is certainly not needed when sequencing. The only work around is to remove the Windows command and HOPEFULLY remember to put it back. This is particularly a pain when sequencing on a different computer than the show run on - and the command that is suupposed to be executed only exists on the show computer. Request, can

  29. Not buying anything this year, I have enough stuff that I could actually run two shows. I spent this years allotted show money on new hardwood floors which I have been installing since I was stuck in my house. I will do a few more songs and make a few props out of my spares this year.

  30. @Box on Rails Yes this is new and yes it will embed the picture inside the sequence. You can also export the picture back out if needed. It's a nice feature. This was talked about in one of the threads I started and here is the link. It seems to work really well. You can see the new motion effects stuff in the sample sequence. There is one with the embedded picture as well. C:\Users\username\Documents\Light-O-Rama\Sequences\Samples Matt Brown posted an updated sample sequence because the one that gets installed with v5.4 was missing the embedded picture.

  32. Keep in mind that a GFCI receptacle has a line side and a load side. If you want all receptacles on the circuit to operate or shut down individually then all wiring is on the line side only, load side will not be used.

  33. As the originator of this poll, I am biased. I use a PC to control my shows. Ever since ver 5.3.0 when the ability for users to create thier shows with S5 Sequencer was removed from the Sequencer program this procedure is now a function of Show on Demand to create playback files "on the fly" it has been very frustrating to struggle to get a show to perform as expected. It is not easier for a PC user. 2 things that are disapointing to me. 1) Communications - LOR has been less than forthcoming about why this action was taken. Many have asked and questioned the reasoning for this and it

  34. I sent in 6 controllers and the turn around time was amazing. How could anyone be upset? It is Christmas time. I plan ahead for failed componets. Those spring sales really help when it comes to having spares. So for me, just having your team willing to fix the stuff I break affordably is a huge bonus. Thanks to you and your team Mike. Thumbs up from me. 👍

  38. I've watched it, but don't really like the direction that the show has taken. Everything seems to be about the tear jerk story, and not about the lights. Competing different styles of show against one another (static, vs amusement park, vs animated, vs synchronized) makes no fair comparison.

  39. How are you supplying power for the ELL? You must use a USB485B or have another controller connected such as a CTB16PC to supply the power.

  40. You can save as many Network preferences as you like. The picture belows shows the different Preferences I have saved. As you can see, I use many different Network Configurations for testing different controllers. For shows I would use the network settings shown below for ALL networks to be active. When I build a new prop in the garage and want to test only that prop instead of hauling out of my controllers, I only make the Network that the controller I am testing active. No need to send info to controllers not currently present on the system. I also have a

  43. Please don't convert now as it is way too late to get comfortable with S5. S5 has a huge learning curve and if you have to ask how to convert from S4 to S5 then I would tell you to wait until after the Holidays so you have all of next year to learn it. Trust me if you change now you will have nothing but headaches and be hating life.

  47. Steve summed this up quite nicely. I'll just add my 2 cents also 😜 Remember a Group is exactly that, a Group of props that effects can be applied to. If you put individual stars into a group, then they are no longer individual stars. They are a group, and the effects for the Group will be different from the effect on individual stars. Make sense? If you want to put effects on individual stars, then thats how you have to do it. Having said all this, there are ways to get creative with groups and individual props (stars) See the video below. Hope this helps.
