  1. The attached pics are from one of my controllers that I could not get my hardware utility to recognize this year. I opened the box back up and found a burned electrical smell and some residue. It worked great last year; not sure what happened. Can anyone give me some guidance on how to fix it, or do I need to send it to LOR and have them fix it? I really need this controller. The burned connector is from circuit 12. When I disassembled the circuit board from the box, the back side burn appears to be closest to circuit 13.
  2. HVACR, One of the connectors went out on one of my controllers last year, so I tried to use the phone line jacks, and the controller began to smoke. No idea why, but I decided to stay away from using them. vern
  3. Thank you for the info. I was still unable to recover the file so I had to reaccomplish the sequence. vern
  4. I was working on a sequence earlier today. I saved the sequence and closed my laptop, but the battery died when I opened it back up. When I went to open the sequence up in the sequence editor, it gives me the following error: Error Loading Sequence & Invalid Document Structure. Any ideas? LOR version 3.12.4
  5. Jim, Thank you for your reply. I tried the phone cord as you suggested and started to smell something hot. It was causing the board to heat up on both of the controllers. I let it cool off and they are still discoverable if connected via cat 5. I'll try to find a Y connector today. If I understand you correctly, I should be looking for Y connector with 3 female ends correct? Also, curious why you stressed "short" so much. Each of these controllers are at least 30 feet apart from one another...
  6. I have 5 each 16ch controllers, all linked together on my network. The J7 connector (Cat 5) on my #1 and #4 controllers are not working. One of them is brand new, and the other is about 4 years old now. Is there any other way to get one of them to connect other than using the Cat 5 connector?
  7. My first year I used a set of computer speakers and just ran them out the front door. It worked good. Next year, try to get a good FM transmitter--they are a game changer.
  8. It was my Cat 5 cable... all is well now!
  9. I purchased two CTB16 controllers to add to my existing setup. I followed the directions for changing the existing ID from the default "1" to 2 and 3 respectively. I continue to get "Unable to locate unit to change address. Check connections and power." I've tried everything including searching these forums, and nothing seems to work. The LEDs on both controllers are blinking green when the power is connected. Please help.
  10. Gents, I downloaded the 3.12.4 fix, but the show still stops after the last song. Any other suggestions? vern
  11. So what was the final solution here? I'm running 3.12.2 and my show stops after the last sequence.
  12. I have them by color as well. I just learned a few weeks ago how to organize them into GROUPS--this helps tremendously!
  13. I always open up my show with the Dolby THX Failure...
