  1. Thanks for the ideas. Incans are not a option but brighter is.
  2. This is the exact situation I will be in this year. Help me understand this Ron, you paste each individual effect in to lor at the timing marks or you paste the whole completed nutcracker sequence into LOR. Could the same be true in reverse? Could I complete the entire sequence in LOR and then import the completed sequence in to my NC sequence? How??
  3. Looking for ideas on how to put lights along my roofline specifically the peak of my roof (that runs parallel to the gutters) looking to frame the edges of the roof up to the roofline essentially creating a rectangle on the roof line/edges. The problem I have is not uncommon in my area to have a foot or two of snow standing on the roof during the month when my show. is up. I'm sure this is not a new problem so I'm looking for ideas of what others have done to put the lights along the roofline and keep them up out of the snow. (most obvious idea is moving to a climate where it doesn't snow but sadly I can't make that happen)
  4. Would love to have a copy djmc2002@me.com Tks
  5. Great info-just what I needed to know. Thanks for asking-thanks for answering
  6. I'm interested in what wisdom comes your way on this too. I'm trying to learn ss and am some what flummoxed by it right now myself
  7. Great info thanks. I'm looking to pick up some floods and your insights helped a lot. One question. What kind of coverage area can you get from one of the lor 10w floods? Will 8 floods do my whole house? My house is about 60 feet long and looking to wash it with color (house is white brick) Tks
  8. This morning, I went to each controller and verified the hardware utility could see the controllers and I could use. I then reset the unit numbers to the proper numbers. I then went back to my main controller computer and it now seems to be working as desired. The larger question is remains why would the controller change back to a old number? Is there something besides the left hand side of the hardware utility software used to set unit id? How do you make the change permanent? I seems to have no problem reverting back to #4 so why is that change more permanent than when I change it to #3 or #2? Frustrated!!
  9. Help! I have 3 LOR controllers and my show has been up and running without issues since last week. Tonight when the show started I had sections not working as expected (not working at all) so I launched the Hardware utility and 1 of my controllers (#2 in my case) is not picking up in the Hardware utility (even after reinitializing) as if it is not present, one of the remaining controller which I had set to #3 has reverted to its old number 4. When I look at the board in the controler box they are both showing steady red on the LED. The controller that reverted to it old number will work from the Hardware utility but for obvious reasons will not work with my show as it is set out of range. We did receive several inches of snow overnight but have had no power outages and my computer that drives the show seems stable. I'm at a loss of what has happened. My initial thought was that something had become unplugged or perhaps was shorted out but with the controller reverting back to the old numbers has me stumped. Since I noticed this problem after dark and it is 20 degrees outside and snowing I have not done much beside checking plugs and using the hardware utility at this point Any ideas? Troubleshooting idea? HELP!!
  10. Thanks for the tip. So I need the light a control board and a power supply correct. What abut sequencing software? I'm run basic plus and plan to up a grade at least in level in the spring. I have always shyed away from the whole rgb thing as it seems so hard to understand. Also is it worth the large investment cost?
  11. After opening night my gears are turning for my shows next year. To that end I'm thinking of using floodlighting in colors (red, blue, white) on my white brick home next year to add some punch to my show sections that are dominated in one color. What have y'all found to work best for floodlighting? I would prefer led for the simply fact of power load/draw . Also source of supply to purchase. Thanks all!
