  1. Blue Christmas - Porky Pig

    I don't know that I've ever heard that one. James, you got a video of your sequence? If not, please send me the sequence and tell me where to get the audio. namecips@yahoo.com
  2. RGB

    Do you have an existing image with light layout in the Animator in another sequence? If not, save yourself some time and use the visualizer to draw your light layout. It's much more robust with options and tools to help.
  3. Superstar Instant Sequence questions

    It may just be me, but I've never been able to put together an instant sequence that looks good or remotely "dances" to the song beats I'm using.
  4. So the wife asked and I didn't know the answer. I know someone here does. Do we have any liability exposure by replaying songs like Thunder by Imagine Dragons over our FM transmitters? I'm using an open station in our area. I also have purchased all of my music and can prove it.
  5. Controller not working completely

    What is the impact of changing the network speed? I've never heard of it before.
  6. Boxes not working

    I think it would help if you started over and gave a more specific description of your setup. There are so many different variables in play. While they're joking around a little at your expense, they just need more info in order to help you. And they will help you.

    If still in the giving mood, I'd like a copy as well. Namecips@yahoo.com
  8. Blinking green lights

    I had a problem with my com jacks in the controller this year. The wires inside the jack had been pushed to the back of the jack and weren't making contact with the cable when I connected it. Took a while, but I was able to straighten all 8 wires and the jack worked. Check the wires inside the jack in the controller. IF they are pushed back, I found a metal dental pic works best when trying to get behind the wires to push them out.
  9. Loose Comm ports

    Great News! My ticket was answered on Thanksgiving morning. I was blown away that someone had read and responded to my email on a holiday. In the email I was given a few things to review before we started talking swaps. Well, long story short, the wires in my com port were crushed up against the back of the jack. After about an hour of straightening the wires in the first "broken" controller, I found a better way to get this job done and took 15 minutes to fix the other two. Those wires are small and the jacks don't make it easy to get behind the wires. However, all controllers are working and I was able to test all my lights. I will be starting my show tomorrow night. Thanks to everyone who offered up suggestions. I really appreciate your help. Special thanks to the tech who read and responded to my ticket. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
  10. Loose Comm ports

    No joy on anything today. Question on the phone cord. When using that connection do you have to use it throughout the whole daisy chain? If so, I didn't do that. If not, then the phone cords didn't fix the issue either. Hated to do it, but opened a ticket to see what/if anything else I can do. If I can get an 8th controller working, I can run my show and not lose much. If I can't, then I lose a nice portion of my show. Learning lessons right and left this year. I'll be grabbing an extra controller or two in one of next years sales. I appreciate everyone's help. I'm hoping the help desk comes up with something we haven't thought of or provides a good next step suggestions.
  11. Loose Comm ports

    That will be the next step after the phone cord.
  12. Loose Comm ports

    Do I lose anything? Slower/delayed response? And is it just standard phone cord or something else?
  13. Loose Comm ports

    I have not, but will if you think it will help. I think I've made some progress. Current state: 7 linked and working #4, 5, 6 all work except when plugged in to the center comm port. All three are loose/shaky, but nothing crazy. I've run all the wire combinations multi and single connected and I'm pretty much convinced the loose ports are my issue. Can I link the controllers using the "phone line" port? (I don't know the technical name. Haha)
  14. Loose Comm ports

    Have 6 of 9 connected and working. I can make show adjustments if necessary. Two of the non-working controllers have brand new cables coming in and out, but are the original two that wouldn't work. The third is strange because it was working up until the last test of last night. I have been powering down the controllers before making cable adjustments/changes/swaps. Is it necessary to power down? Good precaution? Doesn't matter?
