  1. CAT5 cable runs

    Thanks for all of the ideas. I am thinking about possibly using paracord from the house to the tree and attaching the cat5 cable to it. Thanks again
  2. CAT5 cable runs

    Hello everyone. I have a portion of my yard that I would like to place a few props in and my tune to sign. In order to get to this part of my yard I will need to contend with my driveway. It's possible I could run the cat5 cable from the top corner of my house over to a tree that sits in this area. I will need to run an extension cord to this area also. If I decide to run the cables on the ground and the driveway what are my options as far as wrapping them in something so they do not get torn up from vehicles driving over the cables? How do most of you contend with this? Or is it just best to run the cables from the house to the tree? Thanks in advance. Eric
  3. 4.3.22 has all the new SuperStar features!

    Cool. Thanks Brian
  4. trying to figure it out

    Keep in mind high resolution videos and or pictures will not look very good on a standard matrix. I have used some cartoons on my matrix such as frosty and the Grinch. They turned out well so did let it go.

  6. Smart RGB -- Advice Needed

    I am a huge fan of the falcon controllers. I have 5 of them with 4 expansion boards. Super easy to set up and run. I do not own any lor pixel controllers but I can imagine they are as great as the rest of their hardware. Falcon has great support and so does lor. I really don't think you can go wrong with either. I only hear of good about the sandevices too. I have had no issues with holiday coro but several have. Good luck with whoever you go with!
  7. Audio interference

    No cables are hooked up. Running it straight thru the laptops internal speakers
  8. Audio interference

    I will try that. Thanks.
  9. Audio interference

    Also I have noticed that my audio never cuts out when I am doing my sequencing or anything like that. It only cuts out when I actually have lights hooked up and testing my sequences out.
  10. Audio interference

    All of my songs are converted from mp3 to a wave by audacity. The songs do it at different times even while using the same song. That's why I am thinking it's some type of interference and not the songs themselves. I will play around with audacity a little more and see if I can figure something out though. Thanks
  11. Audio interference

    Last year while running my show my audio would every once in a while sound as though it was receiving interference. Today while testing some sequences the interference would occur often. While the song is playing the audio will cut out here and there but is sounds like a quick and sudden grinding noise. It usually lasts about a half second or so and does it about 5-6 times per song. My computer was supplying the audio while playing the sequences. I did not have an fm transmitter hooked up. Does anyone know what will cause this and how to fix it. The audio was set at about 50% on the computer. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  12. Importing image

    Brian I did install that version today. I do have the importing image working correctly but if I choose the standard view and then play the image nothing appears on the element I have placed the image on. Also when importing an image earlier I would get the error I spoke of. The fix for that was simply not choosing the time first but rather doing that last. I often highlight the time first before I make an effect which works for all of my other sequencing in superstar but not with images....The imported images turn out great by the way.
  13. Importing image

    Nope. Just wanted to make sure it didn't have to be standard mode for the effects to appear correctly. I have never used the import image option and just wasn't sure how it all worked. Thanks for your help.
  14. Importing image

    Ok I got it to work. Now after the grid enlarges and I click standard and then play it I do not see the image. If the grid mode is on large I see it just fine. Am I missing something here? Thanks
  15. Importing image

    Thanks Alan but every time I hit add in step 5 I get the error "start and end times cannot be the same" no matter what I have the x and y set at. I just don't get it. When I draw my own image I do not get this error. Thanks
