  1. The USB485B, one with booster, does not support high speed networks but then again neither do the ELL's. If you want to test ELL's then just connect it to a controller you already have. As suggested, just go ahead and get yourself a couple of the red adapters as they are only a $2 more.
  2. If your license does cover your set up then you may have to manipulate the Timing Map. The instant sequencer works by frequencies in your music so you have to adjust the strings to be on separate frequencies.
  3. I only use the strips when I can permanently mount them to things like conduit or something. The strips are pretty fragile and can't take the bending, folding and rolling as easy as the strings. My strips either stay mounted on the house year round or they are mounted on 1/2 inch pvc where I can take the entire pipe down without removing the strips for storage. If you do have to remove the strips I would recommend putting them back on their original reels that they came on or carefully looping them and put them in their own storage box. If you are talking string nodes on the plastic strips then just loop them loosely as strings are pretty resilient.
  4. I have to agree, anything transitioning to S5.
  5. Also, for those who are looking for a timer who want to be able to program and control things through wifi and your phone these are great: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07KB63CYN/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  6. Your situation is probably different then most who run landscape lights. My understanding is that they are using a CMB24D and a floodlight or two so a sequence installed in the CMB24D would be fine. Plug the CMB24D into a timer and program to run when powere on and the computer can go bye bye.
  7. Since you are using them for landscape lights you know you can use the CMB24D as a stand alone and install a sequence in it and not have to use a computer.
  8. I am not following how the USB485 adapter was damaged, you mentioned these were landscape lights do you leave the controllers connected to a computer?
  9. Heck, I use 18ga ferrules and they are tight. I don't know how you are getting 14ga in there.
  10. If you are talking about two sets of dongles in each connector they won't fit. The connectors are rather small and just putting one set in fills them up.
  11. If you are going to purchase a CMB24D with LOR dongles then make sure you buy all your dongles from LOR. HC dongles/pigtails and LOR dongles do not match up as they are different sizes so pick one vendor and stay with them for the dongles.
  12. I guess the word "ANIMATION" threw me off then. You must be talking sequencing.
  13. The point is with all those pixel trees that you are wanting to run a Standard license will not run all those pixels. First you will need to upgrade to a Pro license to run those pixels and that will also give you access to PE which will help with the animations.
  14. Please update your profile because if you are still using a Standard license you are not going to animate anything.

    Honestly, if you just get the cords off the ground they would be fine. I hang all connections if they are near bushes or trees and I raise the ones in the yard only a inch or two. As long as the water can run off and not puddle a bit around the cords you will be fine, never had any issues
