  1. Here is a good site where you can compare performance and data for all your computer parts. https://ssd.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Samsung-850-Evo-500GB-vs-Crucial-MX500-500GB/3477vsm418385
  2. The Pixie8 requires the use of eight unit ID's and the Basic software doesn't allow that many. Also the Pro software enable ELOR which the Pixie controllers require to operate pixels properly due to the high channel count.
  3. The cheapest I can find on sale. After the Holidays I can find them for $2 a box so if I throw them away who cares. Just stay away from the Martha Stewart brand.
  4. I have never personally seen dumb C7 strings. As a matter of fact, I have never seen smart C7 pixels either.
  5. The HC arch controller is a Alphapix4 and will need to be placed on a E1.31 network. It does not connect to the CCP controller on the LOR network.
  6. Where in Georgia? I am pretty local.
  7. I have deer that run through my yard as well. I wanted to put some lights on them but they are just too fast. 😁
  8. The program is adding the macro channels automatically, sorry I don't know how to delete in S5 if that is what you are using.
  9. For future reference always tie/tape off the cat5 cable so if the cable is kicked or pulled it doesn't put any strain on the connector. There is no strain relief built in for the cat5 so leave some slack and secure them, those connectors will pop loose pretty easily. I have added a pigtail connector to all of mine so I don't even need to open the box to connect them. I wish LOR would put them on all their boxes.
  10. Only LOR controllers work on LOR directors. You would have to connect the HC dumb controllers to E1.31 which the directors don't provide. You could possibly run them DMX with the LOR iDMX=1000
  11. Good catch, The HC dumb controllers won't work on a LOR network. I was thinking CMB24D.
  12. Keep in mind that when you add the Pixcon16 and assign unit ID 1 to it it will use 16 unit ID's. Here is a sample ID setting: Pixcon16 - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0A, 0B, 0C, 0D, 0E, 0F, 10 Dumb Controller - 11 Dumb Controller - 12 CTB16PC - 13
  13. Depends on what you are looking for, using the controller will affect all sequences. Dimming in the sequence only affects that sequence so it depends on what your goals are.
  14. If you are using the orange/white pair (pins 1 & 2) then the jumpers on the CMB24D need to be set to the DMX side. If you are using the blue/white pair (pins 4 & 5) then the jumpers would be set to the LOR side.
