  1. 16x25 Pixel Tree issue with visualizer

    Jerry, thanks for posting that. The unit ID had me confused. The wording is funny but I got it.
  2. 16x25 Pixel Tree issue with visualizer

    Thanks for getting back to me. I will try to figure it out in the meantime.

    Jerry, could you please send me the message that Brian sent you. fbolton1238@gmail.com Thanks
  4. Pixel Editor will not start

    I rebooted and everything is working OK now. I probably should have tried that first. Hopefully I don't have to delete anything.
  5. Pixel Editor will not start

    I am having the same problem with Pixel editor and getting a recommendation to use the jitDebugging. Have any of you seen this. Has anybody contacted LOR about this?
  6. Making Sure Pixels Run In My Sequences.....

    OK the answer was already on this page. Yes, to run PE effects the firmware needs to be updated. I downloaded the update and then I was able to update each controller while they were daisy chained together using the hardware utility. Thanks.
  7. Making Sure Pixels Run In My Sequences.....

    I have a question regarding the Enhanced LOR option. I programmed a bunch of sequences using the pixel editor. When I tried to use them, they did not work. I found this thread so I changed all of my networks to the enhanced, I checked and made sure that they were compatible based on the link above, but once changed, nothing worked. I do have a pro license. On the regular network I have 10 standard LOR controllers, on the A network I have 6 cosmic color ribbons, on the B network I have 6 cosmic color ribbons (about three or four years old). I have done more searching and I am guessing that I need to update the firmware? Please confirm. Also, can I do this while they are hooked up or do I have to do each box separately. I would only do the CCR's now and wait until after the season for the 16 channel units. Also, unrelated, I am running two alphapix controllers but I don't know how they are working because my Ethernet card I am using for the E1.31 connection has failed and I cannot get one until Tuesday. Thanks for your help.
  8. lumen output of ccr

    Bob, Thanks for the link. I will take a look at this and your web page about the project to get a better idea of what will be involved. Both of your points are correct - I would be wasting pixels and I think I would be disappointed in the one pixel per bay. Thanks for confirming Frank
  9. lumen output of ccr

    Bob, I found your website and I compliment you on your work. However, I have only ever used LOR. I don't even know what a WS2811 is. And the power supply issues are more that I want to deal with. My thought was to use one pixel per bay which would mean 4 candy canes per 100 pixel string ( this would waste 18 pixels but they would be used for spacing). I am not sure about programming CCPs yet with LOR S3 advanced but the CCRs were fairly easy. I have 12 CCRs and they are quite bright so I thought my plan may work. Let me know what you think. Thanks Frank

  11. lumen output of ccr

    This thread came up when I searched for CCP lumens. I want to use the CCPs for the holiday coro candy canes? The devices recommended on that site look much larger? Has anybody used the CCPs for these candy canes? Or has anyone used both products that can compare? Any advice is appreciated.
  12. Error 01-BOOTLOADER-PC-V2 for

    I was having similar problems where I would find 9 controllers or 1. It seemed to be different every time I did a refresh. If you google "lightorama controller problem" you may find some information that is helpful. What worked for me was pulling the 8 pin chip (with the power off) to the left and just below the cat5 inputs. Don't know why it worked but it did. Also, there are some threads that tell you how to reset the controller. If you don't have any luck with these, I would contact LOR. Time is running short.
  13. Error 01-BOOTLOADER-PC-V2 for

    Here is the link to the page on the lor website http://www1.lightorama/firmware-updates It should give you instructions where to download to and then on the hardware utility, there is a firmware button. In reading they were very specific about only having one controller hooked up at a time. I did not actually update my firmware so I am not exactly sure how the procedure goes.
  14. Error 01-BOOTLOADER-PC-V2 for

    I was getting the same error on the same controller. I found that I was up to date on the firmware so I decided to reseat the PCI (??) chip that I read about on other threads. That did the trick. This was on a year old controller that had not been used. Good luck. This was very confusing.
  15. Upside Down

    Well i switched the wires and everything is right now. turns out that the superstar numbers the ribbons from left to right. #1 being at the left as you are facing it. Hopefully this will help somebody.
  16. Upside Down

    Thanks, I did check that. I am using a tree layout and the 90 button makes the text vertical. I did discover that i had to flip the ccrs on my visualization to match the sequence after I flipped it. I also discovered that the ccrs were backwards 12-1 rather than 1-12 I changed this to match what I thought I sequenced. This resulted in the visualization matching what is happening in real life. But I don't know how to fix it. I am considering rewiring the boxes but that should not make a difference. Although I am not sure how the superstar sequencer knows which one is number one. I made an assumption that #1 was on the right and #12 was on the left. Maybe that how it works in China. If anybody has been through this, please help.
  17. Upside Down

    Have either of you resolved this issue. I too had to flip my controller location from top to bottom but now the text is flipped horizontally and going in the wrong direction. Meaning it is not upside down. Any help is appreciated
  18. Leaping Arches

    Hi guys, I am planning on doing some leaping arches this year and I was wondering if anyone has figured out what is the best light spacing to use. I would think that the most lights with the shortest wire. I have found some ones that have 100 lights on a 27' length of wire and I think that this would be the best. Thanks for your help.
  19. Leaping Arches

    Thanks for the link. There is enough information there to figure out how to put them together.
  20. Music play at different volumes

    This is my first year with a LOR and I am having trouble with the sound level. I have about 15 different sequences with music form itunes, LOR and my own CD's. Some of the songs play louder than others on my outside speakers. Has anyone seen this problem before? I would appreciate any help I can get. Thanks
  21. Music play at different volumes

    Thanks again guys, I used MP3 gain to get the volume levels to be the same. However I was not able to get it to work on Vista, I had to use my computer with XP then copy the audio files. As a result of this problem, I have decided to buy a transmitter. If I have problems with that I will use Audacity. Thanks again. :cool: Frank
  22. Music play at different volumes

    Thanks guys, I will give this a try and let you know how it works out. I appreciate the quick response.
