    Must have missed that button

    Thanks for the reply and no it was sequenced to run 1.5 hours. Thanks, for the tip, I will try it this evening, Bob
  2. Still learning every time I finish a new sequence, this afternoon I completed the most complex sequence I have ever attempted. After I completed it I saved it, and hit the play button and went outside to admire my work. After 6 minutes the sequence stopped, I went back inside and checked my settings. Made sure the total length of show was set to run the time length that I wanted. I could not find anything wrong so hit the play button and the sequence started again from the beginning. Same result at 6 minutes, tried several times with the same result. Gave up and decided to move forward, set a show in show editor and scheduled the show using the same sequence. The sequence came on as scheduled a still running 2 1/2 hours later. Wonder what I missing. Thanks & hope you shows are up and running. Bob

    Getting the color right

    Thank Jim, looks like I have more work to. Good thing it's not my Christmas show, but landscape lighting. So I will just have to work it the settings until the boss (wife of 48 years) is happy. Thanks Calhoun Lights

    Getting the color right

    I am using version 4.2.6 to control a dumb three channel controller. Trying to get a warm light color on the string. I have looked at several different RGB color charts, but setting the DMX intensity scale to their suggestions results in the string having a blue or green tint. Can the hardware effect the colors? Has anyone figured out the DMX settings to the warm white look, or maybe it can't accomplished using LEDS. Thanks Calhoun Lights

    RGB Channel Intensity

    Jim and Bob, thanks for the quick replies. Added RGB to my landscape lighting, and in some areas I need to dim it. I will try these suggestions later this evening. Calhoun Lights

    RGB Channel Intensity

    Jim or Todd, You ideas help a lot but still unable to turn my RGB bulbs down a little. I get the color fade tool but still can't figure where you go to set the intensity. If I open the intensity tool and select a lower value, then select the RGB channel, it makes all three colors the intensity value I selected. Therefore dimming the light but turning it white. Thanks for any help. Calhoun Lights

    Wire cutters, is this a good idea?

    Thanks for the prompt reply, I understand and will give it a try. This is next years display piece, so have time to order if I mess this up!

    Wire cutters, is this a good idea?

    Before I destroy a good set of lights, has anyone tried this? I have a 100 lamp led light string I would like to shorten. Having to add a resistor to the shorten end to use the extra power that shorting the string put on to the remaining lights is above my pay grade. These a good quality strings from a vendor in Kansas They have the 115 volt plug and two wires to the first blob, then three wires from there to the second blob and three wires to the third blob and then two wires to the end female plug. Is it possible to cut this into three sections? I don't care if I lose the ability to connect strings together. I would have to understand which of the three wire would need to connect to the added male plug. Thanks and hope your shows are up a running the way you intended. Bob

    Must be something I missed

    Thanks for the prompt reply. The set up is lap top connected to holiday coro's dongle, dongle to holiday coro's three channel controller. This controller is set screw connection only. Using pins one and two in a cat five connector for dmx + & -. Power is from a 12 volt power supply. The light connection is yellow positive and reg, blue, green negative. I called the lights a strip, but it's just a string of 50 pixcel's. Hope this helps.
