  1. Thank you!!! Yes, it was all one prop.....
  2. I just started using Visualizer this year, so I hope this is an easy fix. I created a fixture of lights on my house (roof, windows, door) as well as around my camper. Now it turns out I will not be lining my camper in lights, so I am wondering if there is a way to delete the portion of lights around the camper, but leave the house alone? Thanks!
  3. I will give that a try as soon as I'm able. Thank you!
  4. This is my third year using a couple of CTB16PC controllers. They have been very well taken care of (kept out of the elements, etc) and I've never had a problem. I pulled them out of storage to set up and test my Halloween show. All was working well until the other day. I plugged controller #2 into power and channel #2 immediately came on, but it was weak. I unplugged the unit, and plugged it back in and all was well. I chalked it up to solar flares and moved on. However, it has done it again and the unplug, replug is not working. Whatever is plugged into that channel will light up and then slowly fade and/or flicker. I ran hardware diagnostics, but the channel seems to power on/off just fine. Any advice on how to proceed from here? Thanks!
  5. Don, is SS limited to 50 channels per strip, or 150? I'm a total newb here, so please excuse my ignorance. The reason I ask is a 2CCR version covers 300 channels, so I'm assuming each CCR would be 150 channels. Is that correct? The strips I'm considering (from Holiday Coro) are 150 channels on each strip, so 150 x 12 = 1800 channels. The lowest version of SS available to cover 1800 channels is the 24_CCR version.
  6. I'm thinking of purchasing a Smart Pixel MegaTree Kit from a vendor. It contains 12 strips totaling 1800 channels. This is probably an obvious answer, but I'd like to confirm with some experts. If I purchase said kit, will I need to purchase the LOR SS 24CCR version in order to cover the 1800 channels? Thanks for the help!
  7. Update......I straightened up my setup and during the process noticed the antennae could take another turn on the threads. Let everything run for about 20 min last night and the music sounded clear the whole time. Thanks for the help, as always, you guys are great!
  8. I don't believe I have any wires crossing, but will certainly check that when I get home tonight. Thanks!
  9. I purchased a Rangestar FM Transmitter (Model CZH-05B) this year to replace the crappy Whole Home Transmitter so many of us "first timers" seem to get stuck with our first time out. I got the unit in October, plugged it in, set my channel and boom, I had fantastic sound for my Halloween show. I have not touched it or made any changes since then, but now when I try to use if for my Christmas show, there is noticeable static when songs are playing. If I grab the antennae the sound clears up instantly. I do not have anything else plugged into the outlet and as I said, nothing else in my layout has changed. Any thoughts on how I can fix this? Unclear audio really degrades the quality of the light show, so I'm hoping I can come up with a solution other than holding the antennae every night for the next six weeks. Thanks!  
  10. Yes you can as mentioned above. You can also view the channel configuration and make channel changes there. I did this exact thing yesterday after my wife decided to make some last second changes to our Halloween display.
  11. I actually started working on my Halloween display in January when I decided to try integrating DMX into my display this year. Today I spent a solid non-stop 10 hours putting my Halloween display together. At the end of the day I was cold, hungry, and my back was tired, but I forgot all of that as soon as the lights came on. The neighbors came out to watch and we sat back and enjoyed a cold pumpkin beer. Life doesn't get much better than that!
  12. I remember my first display (last year) and how excited I was. Funny thing is, I think I'm even more excited this year. I'm pretty sure that feeling never goes away no matter how many years you do this stuff! Good job, the timings look spot on. Good luck and Happy Lighting!
  13. I ended up buying 150' rolls as well that were cuttable every 3'. My faces worked out so most of the face parts were various increments of 3' (6', 12', etc), but I did have some excess on a few. I just covered the extra with black tape.
  14. Very nice! I like the way yours has fully lit "pie wedges". Have a great lighting season!
