  1. Update. I checked over everything to make sure all the setting were good and found no issue I made sure that the control panel was running.I tried it one more time and Now when I play the sequence all the light strings show up on the simulation but the background picture is missing. It is there when the Visualizer is not in simulation mode but once I press the play button it brings up a white screen. I do not have this issue on my other pc the background pic is always there at least I can see the lights now lol. Any ideas on why the pic is not showing up ?
  2. I tried to restart as well as uninstalling and reinstalling. I am running version 4.1.2 Advanced
  3. Yes that is the problem I am having when I press the "PLAY" button to start the simulation it never starts it loads a white blank page even if i start the sequence from the sequence editor. It is set up the same on my other pcs with no problem. For some reason on this one it just loads the blank page and the picture never shows up
  4. When I press the play button in the visualizer it goes to the simulation screen it is blank white and nothing ever showes up? any idea of what is causing this. I have the control panel on I have control Visualizer checked. I uninstalled and reinstalled and checked everything again same issue ugg Robin
  5. Hello, Has anyone made or have a good idea of how to make a prop for the new Holiday Coro RGB Spiderweb? I am not sure the best way to go about it. Any help or ideas would be great. Thanks Robin
  6. Ok I am having trouble getting all my pixels to work at the same time. I purchased a pixlite16 and 2 350w power supplies. I am using 12v ws2811 pixel strips mounted to pve to outline my house, I completed installing the first section today and went to test them all at once. I have 221 pixels in the first section they are all wired to output one on the pixlite 16 I have also injected power along the way.I know that each output can handle 340 pixels so no problem there. I also tested each individual stip after mounting them to the pvc. I am using the xlights program to test the light. The first problem is I can not get all the lights to come on at once in xlights. if i click on universe 1 all thoes lights come on the same for universe 2 by itself but if i choose both universes they all go out. The second problem in i added 2 dmx universes in s3 to a sequence to test the lights that way and only universe one will light up. I am new to this and not sure what I could be doing wrong, I have a feeling I may not have the pixlite channel config set up correctly either but not sure how to set up outputs that are not being used. Thank you for any help in advance. This is my first year to dive into rgb Robin
  7. Mike i just purchased the cmb24d and a few of the floods. I also bought one 350W power supply and it seems to work with no issues. I bought a cable guard 1500 enclosure to to put it all in. You can pick up a mounting kit from holiday coro that lets the powe supply and the board fit in the one enclosure. http://www.holidaycoro.com/Light-O-Rama-LOR-CMB24D-Mounting-Kit-p/641-kit1.htm
  8. I just purchased a CMB24D and some 10w flood lights. I also purchased a cable guard cg1500 enclouser to mount it in and was trying to figure out how to mount it when I came across this at Holiday Coro. It allows you to mount the board and a power supply. I ordered it and it worked awesome. I got it all up in running quickly. http://www.holidaycoro.com/Light-O-Rama-LOR-CMB24D-Mounting-Kit-p/641-kit1.htm
  9. I Just bought a CMB24D and bought a CableGuard CG-1500. Holiday Coro now offers a mounting kit where you can mount the board and a 350W power supply inside the CableGuard CG-1500. http://www.holidaycoro.com/Light-O-Rama-LOR-CMB24D-Mounting-Kit-p/641-kit1.htm

    So this is what it shows for the CMB24D Configuration Two banks of 12 channels Individual channel capacity 4 amps Individual bank capacity 30 amps Logic power supply voltage 12 volts DC (not needed if chans 1-12 input >= 12 V) Switched voltage 5 to 30VDC Power connections Screw terminal strips Control In/Out RS485 via RJ45 Without heat sinks 7¼”w x 4”h I purchased a 12v 360W power supply I also purchased 4 of the lor 10W spotlights & would like to add a few dumb square nodes How to i figure out if this will work Thank you everyone for all your help
  11. Hello, i just received my CMB24D and I did a test using the hardware utility and it workrd fine now i just have a couple of questions. 1. if I already have a couple regular lor controllers, do i need to set the unit id to the next on inline? 2. How do you add this to s3 do you add it as a lor controller or as a dmx device? 3. is there a video that shows this? 4. i have also purchased 4 of the 10w flood lights. is there a limit to the distance they can be from the controller? Thank you Robin

    Thank you for the info.. I was looking at one that is 12V 360W. Will this one work for powering both sides?

    I was wanting to know when purchasing the CMB24D Can you run it off of one 12v power supply or does it need one per side of outputs? Thank you Robin
  14. Thank you everyone for your replies.
  15. Hello, What is the best place to buy smart pixel strips? I have looked online and I have also head of RayWU. It seems by the time you pay for shipping from raywu that it is cheaper and faster to get the strips in the us. Does this sound correct or is there a better place to get them
  16. No problem Max-Paul this is good information. So if i understand correctly I can do the whole fron of my house using 1 6804 So there is 4 ouputs on the 6804 how many strips could I hook up to one output or should i devide them up over the 4? Also would one power sup[ply run this all or would I need to purchase a second one?
  17. Thank you for you replies. How far can I have the strips away from the 682? If I do use the 6804 do each of them need to have there own power supply?
  18. Hello All, This will be my third year doing a display. I have 2 Lor 16 channel controllers run by a mp3 show director. I use the LOR s3 software. I am wanting to get into RGB this year and have been doing some research. I am ready to start buying some stuff and had a few more questions. After asking some questions I have decided not to use the mp3 show director to make is easier to run the RGB lights. What I am wanting to do is outline my house with rgb strips and add a few spot lights. I was thinking of buying the E682 for my pixel strips and a CMB24 from LOR for the spot lights. I think I can do the whole front of the house with 10 16ft strips. Question 1 Does it sound like I am going in the correct direction? Question 2 Will the e682 be a good choice? Question 3 Is it better to get a 12v strip or a 5v strip, What do most people buy? Thank you, Robin
  19. That is awesome. Thank you I have done lor for a couple of year now bu I am just getting into RGB. I am trying to get a jump start to learn and get it into this years show.
  20. Thank you so much for the info!!! Do you like making your own better than buying them and how does the price compare? i upgraded to the advanced version of s3 I cant seem to find how to do a rgb channel Is there some where I can read up on this? Thanks Again Robin
  21. Hello, I am wanting to purchase some RGB floods. I would like some suggestions on what to get. I have also read that if i get a cmb24 board and use the s3 software that i have to mix the colors myself. Is this correct and if so is there another way to do this? Thanks Robin
  22. thanks for the info I would like to use smart pixels on my house and then use lor dc board to controll flood lights. I have read that you can buy the rasberry pi and use it to run your show and it supports dmx and you do not need an elor. Does any one know if this is tru and is there any info out there on how to set this up ?
  23. Hello, I am starting on adding RGB to next years Halloween & Christmas displays. I have 2 16 channed lor controllers they are run by a MP3 show director. I was told that I need an ELOR to add rgb to my set up? Is this correct? How many rgb lights will the ELOR support and would it be better to just use a PC ? If I did just use the pc what do i need to go between the rgb lights and the pc? Robin
