  1. FYI - Kevin Dunn is back.
  2. @Paul Masterson I have a Word document that contains images and descriptions of the process I followed to adjust my Pixcon16. I cannot attach it here due to size. Send me a PM with your email address and I will send it to you. If someone wishes to host the document I am willing to share. The usual disclaimers apply: Use at your own risk, your mileage may vary etc. Below is an outline of what I did to adjust the props that are currently using the Pixcon16 in LOR mode to be E1.31 enabled and to add a DMX device. I used S5 for the actual work. For S5 - You will need
  3. Well this turned into a lot of writing/reading. I'm hoping all of these details doesn't make this unusable. I am currently not using my PixCon16 as a DMX bridge. I started doing DMX a number of years (7+) ago and acquired an IDMX instead. As I understand the documentation you are correct in that you would have to adjust your programming for the elements that currently use the PixCon16 from being LOR devices to DMX devices. In S4 I don't see a way to do a mass change which will make it painful if you have a lot of channels assigned to the PixCon16. I can do some experimentation
  4. Your Pixcon 16 can act as a DMX bridge if you are running it in E1.31 mode. The User Guide linked below describes the process. http://www1.lightorama.com/PDF/PixCon16Manual-V1.5-Showtime(S4).pdf
  5. I'm going to be THAT guy. This is a great discussion of the PixieLink but the title of the thread is N4-G4-MP3 Director Documentation. It seems to me it would make sense to create a new thread that indicates it contains discussion about the PixieLink and copy/move the discussion there. I suspect there could be a number of people that would enjoy seeing the discussion but might not notice it due to the title of the thread. Had I not been curious about the N4-G4-MP3 Director I would have missed this very interesting topic.
  6. I am trying out the S5 software to see if I want to transition from S4 to S5. As a part of that process I am updating/cleaning up the preview to take advantage of some of the new features. One thing that has got me stumped is the behavior of the Lines-Connected Prop. On my house I have a string of pixels where the orientation would be the first pixel is on the right side and the input from the controller would be on the right side as well. When I then use the Sequence Editor to light the prop I just created, the pixels are reversed. Pixel 1 is at the left end of the prop when displayed in
  7. Pages 21 -23 in the guide found at the link Orville posted has a good discussion of how to assign a show to a trigger and how to influence how they will behave. E.g Does it play one time or loop, can it be interrupted etc. I brought up the LOR HUB and it is confirming/indicating the show number corresponds directly to the trigger with that number . I checked in the Hardware Utility and if you choose the option "Plays when triggered" you then have to select the trigger. When you tell it to create the SD card the Hardware Utility then chooses for you the show number. Thus Show 1 would r
  8. Sorry, I didn't read the question completely. In my S4 installation the ..\PixelEditor folder has a file named LORPixelEditorData.xml that gets populated when I ask the PE to create a preview from a visualizer file. Perhaps that is what you are looking for.
  9. Visualizer files have the extension .lee and are in the ..\Visualizations\editor folder.
  10. I'm not sure where you got the information that an mp4 would play in the G*-MP3-Director but that is not accurate. The G3-MP3 director and the N4-G4-MP3 Director descriptions in the store indicate they play mp3 files. Maybe the the place where you saw an mp4 would play was in reference to running the show from a computer. I'd suggest converting the audio to an mp3, constant bit rate of 128k and associate that file with the sequence to see if it causes issues.
  11. I use a G3_MP3 Director to run the display at a local church. The building that we use to house the equipment is not heated. December nights in Minnesota can get to -20F. I feel the Director is a better choice for that environment.
  12. Check out the configuration guide for the Pixie8, Page 15. Try setting the RGB order to GRB or GBR. http://www1.lightorama.com/PDF/Pixie_Man_105.pdf
  13. I had no trouble applying the firmware. It was a year ago and do not recall exactly what I did. I am thinking I had assigned a fixed IP address to the board and then directly connected my computer to the device and used the network utility to find it and update as per the User Guide.
  14. This is the same issue I experienced last year at this time. I was told my board contained a bad firmware - 2.0.8 - and was provided new firmware. I was sent two versions and the HD response contained the following warning If you see 'MKII' or 'ECO' on your board, please use "PixCon16 MKII Firmware Showtime (S4)" If your board does not have MKII or ECO on it, use "PixCon16 Firmware Showtime (S4)" If you apply the wrong firmware to a board, the board will be bricked and you will need to recover it.
