  1. New Computer

    It never fails. You ask for help and then you figure out the problem. Under SE< Play for some reason the Control Visualizer option was unchecked. Checking it fixed my program.
  2. New Computer

    Ok so like the title says I just got a new computer and I've installed LOR on the new computer and transferred my files over. For some odd reason I for the life of me can not get visualizer to work. I've even gone as far as just creating some test vis files, created a sequence in super star with the new vis file, exported to SE, hit play on the visualizer then hit play on SE with the freshly exported sequence which was created using the freshly created vis file and i get nothing on the visualizer. Any help would be appreciated. Dan
  3. CUtting RGB Strips

    Saxon, thank you so much. That was exactly the problem. I had to cut some of my extras down alittle due to the chips but I have plenty left over to start working on the house. Thanks again for the help.
  4. CUtting RGB Strips

    Ok so why would not soldering on wires to the correct side not work? I thought they might be one way.
  5. CUtting RGB Strips

    Ok so before i start, if this is a dumb question please be gentle in your response. This is my first year using smart RGB strips so they are new to me. I purchased several 2811 60 led/60 ic strips from Holidycoro, cut them to the desired length (170 leds), made my leaping arches and everything is perfect. I got to thinking and thought id love to use the left over strips and start converting some of my typical led lights to rgb's. This is where I am struggling. The strips came with connectors at both ends so I figured if I cut the connectors off of the other end I would be able to just connect them like I did the other end. When I do this I can not get even a flicker out of the light. Trying to trouble shoot the issue I thought, well maybe, the strips only take current from one end. So I found the solder points and I soldered on three wires (making sure none of my solder touched the other points). I connected the strips to my pixcon 16 and nothing. I tried using the onboard test mode as well as a test sequence I created in ss. I did this for four pieces I had left over all with the same results. So I figured well maybe I blew a fuse on the pixcon and it wasn't working correctly. I pulled out one of my new leaping arches and used the same plug and it worked exactly like it was suppose to. Anyone have any suggestions on what I am doing wrong?
  6. I have several items for sale. I purchased these to creating leaping arches and have since decided to simply go with ccr's instead of doing it the diy method. As such the following items are up for sale. I would like to sell everything as a package as it would be easier for me. If I don't get anyone interested in everything I will of course part things out. 1: Pixcon 16 (I've powered on to make sure it worked and run a test run on a single strip. Has never been outside). 2 400 watt Holiday Coro power supplies (Both have been powered on to make sure they work, one was used to power up the pixcon 16, neither have been outside) 1 CG-1500 enclosure (currently the Pixcon 16 is mounted in this. Never been outside) 2 Holidaycoro RGB Pixel strips (full) 60 led/60 IC per meter (these are brand new, never been outside) 4 Holidaycoro RGB Pixel Strips (Partials) 60 led/60 IC per meter (I cut these when i was making my leaping arches). I will throw these in for free. To buy these right now would cost 423.90 plus shipping. I of course did not pay current prices but would like to get at least 200 plus shipping for everything above.

  10. Great Christmas Light Fight 2016

    I agree i liked the military theme. He should have won that show hands down. So far i'm 0-2 on picking winners this year.
  11. Already planning for next year?

    I just purchased 2,000 new C9 bulbs from CDI for next years show. They were running a 50% off and could not pass up the deal.
  12. SPT wire

    If you catch a pre order sale you can typically get spt1 for around 12-15 cents a foot.
  13. SPT wire

    Always order my plugs from Home Depot and have never had a problem.
  14. HDPE Pipe

    What is the website you ordered from? I followed his video to the letter.

    don't tell me that lol. I put 60/60's in my new arches. My old arches were the highlight of my display maybe with the 60's being overpowering it will add that much more of a wow factor.
