  1. I seen last Christmas someone discuss a vendor, I dont recall who it was, but I ordered a dozen of them, and waited.. months.. and months.. until I finally got fed up and cancelled. I dont recall what vendor it was..
  2. Anyone have any recommendations on where to purchase boxes at to store the CMB24D controller and a power supply?

    RGB recommendations.

    I was looking at them, but I dont think the 10 watts are going to be strong enough. I know LED's are obviously brighter than other lights, I have LED's through much of the inside of my house, but my house is pretty large and 2 stories, so I dont think 8 of them, or 10 watts, is going to do the job.. I could be wrong though.. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=4330626665785&set=a.1503197301818.2068927.1290794618&type=3&theater https://scontent-dfw1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xaf1/v/t1.0-9/318773_4330629865865_1633720725_n.jpg?oh=c8673d4af6ec079eeff76db38872a723&oe=566BA493

    RGB recommendations.

    Ok here is the situation.. I currently have landscaping lights, where my power supply recently burned out. I was going to go out and buy a new one, but really looking at the big picture. Every Halloween and Christmas I add flood lights to my display, about 20 of them, 10 for orange / 10 for green for Halloween, and 10 for red / 10 for green for Christmas, and I use my landscaping flood lights for white, using A LOR plug to power the transformer on/off on demand. What I'm thinking is I'd like to replace my standard landscaping lights with RGB flood lights, where I can change colors, but use them all year around, using the LOR during the holiday season, (or possibly say 4th of July etc), but just turn them on during the rest of the year. I obviously want lights I can daisy chain, so they are all the same color at once, they also need to be durable, prone to weather changes, etc. The problem I have is my house is longer than most. From 1 side of the house to the other, its about 200 feet. Any recommendation on the best way to do what i want, giving me decent lighting, thats dimmable, (dont want to over power christmas lights during the holidays, but bright the rest of the year), and will be efficient for what I'm trying to do? I'm ok with leaving a LOR power supply hooked up all year long, kind of Leary about one of the RGB controllers though, I just dont like how fragile they are.

    Suggestion thread

    But this wouldnt change the sequences, correct? I've got 40 sequences, 24 channels to change, thats 960 rows I have to change one at a time..

    Suggestion thread

    Another suggestion, if you can make the changes I noted above, then add in a way to change all of the channels on a device. For example, I have RGB's on ID 1 but if I want to change it to 10, I have to go in and adjust all 24 rows one at a time. Very painful..

    Suggestion thread

    Exactly, there are times I dont really want to change a row to a channel not being used because I might want to change it back later.. I just want to uncheck saying, dont use this row..

    Suggestion thread

    I'll check out #1 but yes #2, I have some sequences that I dont use many of the rows (they were acquired when I bought some halloween stuff) and because I dont have all of the yard displays they have, a lot of them arent being used but i dont really want to delete them because as I acquire things I'll just rename the rows and assign the previously programmed sections to new props.. It would be nice to just unclick certain rows not being used for a certain display. Or say I only want to work on face 1, and see it in action without lighting everything up, I'd like to just click the channels that use face 1, so only face 1 lights up.

    Suggestion thread

    #1 I'd like the program to display the channel thats being used automatically. If I change for example a face from controller 1 to controller 5, I have to go in and not only change the channels, but then change the name to every item to display "eyes 1-1" to "eyes 5-1".. its a pain in the ass to have to rename everything And by adding a seperate display collumn to the program, we could then sort the rows by controller automatically so if I'm moving things around to view them on the screen they can quickly be re-sorted back. as for #2, if I only want to work on the faces and dont want everything else lighting up, I can simply uncheck everythign but the face. I'm not about ready to delete everything just to only look at the face so an uncheck mark on everything but rows x, y and z would be very helpful. yes but I dont want to hover over every single line. Tonight I had 4-5 lights all using the same controller number and I had to go through every item to find the ones lighting up in error. Being able to sort or just scroll down to see the channels would be extremely helpful when troubleshooting.

    network jacks not recognizing cables

    Thanks.. they are already boxed ready to go out Monday..

    Suggestion thread

    Sorry if there was a thread already on this but I thought I'd offer a few suggestions on the LOR Sequence program 1) I'd really like to see a collumn next to the time scale which shows the channel the item is on.. Right now I'm naming things Left light 01-15 And then setting the channel to LOR 1, channel 15 This way I can look down real fast if there is an issue and find the items on that channel 2) I'd really like to see a check mark or something next to that, which says "use", with the default yes... And if its unchecked, this means that row is ignored. This way when we get a new sequence or something we can just uncheck the ones we want to test and move around without going through and renaming every item and changing channels to something not used and then changing them back as we are ready to work on that segment.
  12. I setup one light o rama unit, everything fine, but when I disconnect the network cable that I just plugged into it, and plug it into a different unit, the 2nd unit does not recognize the network. I'm assuming the network jack came lose, (its a little wiggly), how difficult is this to fix?

    Syncronizing Video with the Show

    Ok guys.. first this thread was a lot of help, but the question I have is. Some of my songs wont have videos associated with them, but my computer wants to send the standard windows blue screen to the projector to display. Other than just changing the backdrop color to black, any ideas how to get the projector to not display anything during the non video sequences?

    In over my head

    Program super star sequencer is a great way to start getting a sequence up and going. I'd suggest using it, and then all you have to do is modify..
  15. I meant the channel is manually set on the controller, not the channel.
