    Am I stupid or what?

    Oh yeah, I have never had that problem, NOT. I have a check list as well but about the time I think I remember and do not look the list that's when I get bit. I have a habit of tweeking things during the day and then forgetting something when showtime comes. If it is true what they say about learning from ones mistakes I ought to be a genius by now but..... Larry

    Controller provide network power?

    thanks to everyone who replied Larry

    Controller provide network power?

    I am certainly going ahead and run it this way. I just thought someone with knowledge of LOR network protocol would explain what is going on. ie. what pins carry data, voltage or sync pulse or whatever. thanks, Larry
  4. I have two CTB16PC gen3 controllers. During a troubleshooting process I noticed with AC power to controller 2 only, and a network cable connected between controller 1&2 that I have accessory power on controller 1. I do not have AC power to controller 1 nor do I have a network cable from pc to controllers connected. Naturally when I disconnect network cable from between 1&2 I no longer have accessory power on controller 1. Now everything works fine but it seems to me when I connect power back to controller 1 that the two accessory powers from controller 1&2 would be bucking one and other. I tried to search info on network data/power but didn't find anything. Larry
  5. Thanks so much for all the ideas. After moving from S3 last year to S5 and PE this year sequence creation is more fun than chore.
  6. l have four verticals at the corners of the house, each about 25 feet apart from the other. Thought about but not tried yet to set up a vertical matrix with the four verticals, but being that far apart not sure how any transitions from one vertical to the next will look. I will have to play with it in preview. My other thought was to set the four verticals as a group and try some effects that way. I already set up few groups, one with my dumb rgb only, running along the roof line, one with dumb rgb and the four smart strip verticals and one with smart pixels only which include the verticals along with bushes and shrubs. So many options so little time. Thanks in advance for any suggestions or ideas. Larry
  7. Thanks SPaschall, I have this vertical strip set as a "firestick" prop and wonder if this is the best choice for type of prop. Larry
  8. Thanks Matt, that did the trick. I failed to mention my strips are vertical so in the mixer I selected Mix_Bottom_Top
  9. I'm having a brain fade or just can't find out how to light a portion of a prop using S5 sequencer. I have a smart pixel strip that I want to, starting at one end of a strip, turn on 1/4 of the strip, for a few seconds, then 1/2, 3/4 onto full. Can this be done? I know I use to do it pixel by pixel in sequence editor but now in S5...... Thanks, Larry

    Software Install Problem

    thanks, sorry for slow response
  12. In eliminating issues from my pc I was removing programs and LOR was one of them. When reinstalling LOR it did not create any folders in documents ie. LOR, audio, sequences, nothing. I can open sequence editor but when trying to open a new file I get an error. Has anyone ran into this before?

    Software version

    I think pro is the way to go. I am going to start a new topic for my other problem but I will tell you in case you have ran across this before. In eliminating issues from my pc I was removing programs and LOR was one of them. When reinstalling LOR it did not create any folders in documents ie. LOR, audio, sequences, nothing. I can open sequence editor but when trying to open a new file I get an error. Have you heard this before?

    Software version

    Thanks Jim, Yep, I think it's time to upgrade/renew. So $30 for renewal and $50 to go to Pro from Advanced. So if I upgrade to Pro renewals are still only good for a year correct? Larry

    Software version

    Thank you k6cc, what are some of the bigger advantages of s4? I'm only running two LOR controllers, 1 Falcon pixel controller and a couple dumb rgb controllers. Everything seems to work fine but if s4 makes for faster or easier development of sequences then I would like to hear or read about that. I will do a search on that but if you want to mention any advantages you have experienced I would love to hear them. Thanks again....
