    Just wanted to follow up, this was the problem. Changed the resolution and everything was good. Thanks to all that took time to respond Bob

    Should be simple, but

    Thanks for the info, will check on the resolution in the morning, cold and raining here. Jim I need to expand on my idea of a new set up. I wasn’t planing on installing the RS 485 adapter. I plan on using E1.31 to control the two LOR generation 3’s controllers. I’m unsure if I can just daisy chain cat 5 between them. Also concerned about the physical layout, to make the best use of the CAT 5. Will start at the computer, short run to E1.31 controller, another short run from the DMX output to LOR unit 2, really long run +100 feet to LOR controller 1, then on again to several DMX dumb controllers.

    I have not moved unit 1 yet, could the fact that unit 1 is not connected be the problem. My plan for this year is to run cat five from the computer to a E1.31 controller, then on to light o Rama unit 2 and then on to unit 1. Running the lot box with E1.31. Hope this will work.

    Should be simple, but

    Ok, I’m tired of trying to figure this out, help please. Installed 4.2.6 advanced on an older windows system to serve as a show computer. All the sequences that looked fine on the laptop they were built on, how look off. The sequence plays fine but the channel buttons do not line up with the channel rows. There is an space between the timing row and the first row of programming. Can’t select anywhere on this row. Any ideas? THanks

    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
  7. 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
