  1. Greg and Mega Arch, I finally got down to work on Christmas again and I tried the AutoFlip program. Greg's directions worked great as I actually got a "flip" when I ran a test. Mega Arch, thank you also for your excellent suggestions. Both of you were very helpful and I thank you both again for taking the time to respond to my post. Lee
  2. Thank you both for the replies. Sorry I didn't respond sooner but my daughter just got married and I didn't have much time for visiting the forums. Give me a few days to get back into LOR and I will get back to either one or both of you. Your suggestions are much appreciated. Lee T.
  3. In the sequencer, is it possible to copy an arch sequence on one controller and paste it to another controller so you get a mirror image? Or would I just reverse the plugs on the second arch? Thanks in advance.
  4. Mind are chained to my flag pole and my porch. They are covered with black trash bags just enough to cover the plugs.
  5. I am 100% LOR too: 6 - CTB16PC, 3 - Dumb RGB, 12 - CCR for Matrix Screen..
  6. You can also use political signs made of coro. I made ten two-foot trees using them. A sign should also work.
  7. Best of luck to all of you who went "live" tonight. Hope your displays bring some Christmas Joy to those who watch. The same goes to all of you who will be turning on your lights at different times in the coming days.. Our family tradition is to turn on the Christmas Lights on December 1st so that is when our show begins. That gives my wife and I a little more time to get everything in place, especially the three-fourths of a mile of extension cords. Merry Christmas to all of you on the LOR forums for all of your help and suggestions over the past year. Have a great bright and musical holiday season.
  8. My Christmas Show runs about 30 minutes. Halloween runs about the same.
  9. As for the SS folders, Brian answered the question a few messages above. I am using a Beta Version of SS that I found in the forums.
  10. Brian, I just downloaded the Beta of SS and discovered that you were able to add folders to the clipboard so that props can be classified by holidays. Thank you for considering that idea. Looking forward to the next update.
  11. Hi. I am just outside Hammonton. Even though I am still new at this, I, too, am willing to help out anyway I can. Just message me.
  12. 72. Started with LOR in during the summer of 2013 with my first show at Halloween. Still learning thanks to the forum.
  13. Happy New Year, Everyone! Just think--it's time to start thinking about 2017! The wife and I took down everything today but a few CCPs on the house. Too old for the roof stuff so waiting for the son to come this weekend for that part. As some of you have already said, it sure looks dark out there now that the lights are off. Old Sarge, sorry for your loss. Hope you are feeling better and got the flu shot.
  14. Load/Save Clipboard files. That way each holiday would have its own folder,
  15. Brian, Any news as to when we might see "folders" in the SuperStar props section? Just checking. Also, Happy New Year. We will be celebrating a little before you tonight!
  16. That is an excellent idea and, as you stated, it will make next year's setup a lot easier. I just made up the chart and printed it out. Tomorrow I will get it completed. Thanks again.
  17. Thank you, Alan and Don, for your suggestions and comments. I decided to go with adding a Network C. I have 9 songs and only had to change the network for the CCPs which took about half an hour. I tested them out this afternoon and everything seemed to work fine. I went this root because when I purchased my "screen" package from WowLights, Mike said it would be best to only run 6 CCRs per high speed USB for best results. For some reason, when I went outside to check them out tonight, all the lights on the Regular Network and the new Network C seemed to be brighter. Also, I use SuperStar but not the Visualization file. That is next on my list of things to learn--but not until January or February! Again, thank you so much. Merry Christmas. Lee
  18. Thanks, Alan. Don't rush because I am going to bed now. It's 12:19 AM in NJ and this old guy needs the sleep. Will check in again later in the morning. Again, thanks much for the assistance. Night.
  19. Alan, I am running the show from my laptop and it does have another USB port available.
  20. Yes. Just don't know how to go about hooking it up.
  21. I am running 3 CCPs (CC Pixel 100s each with two strings of lights) with each of the three controllers having its own ID (7, 8, and 9). They are running on my regular network using the USB-485B with Booster. This USB has connections for two different outputs--one for the CCPs and one to run 5 of the 16 channel controllers. My problem is that all of the CCPs don't always turn on. Sometimes one string is off while five are on. This also happens in other combinations at various times. Other times, they all work fine. I want to take the CCPs off of the regular network and run them off of a USB-485 HS (the red one). This is where I need assistance. I don't know how to do this. Can I just plug in the high speed USB-485 and run the CCPs or must I set up a new network? If a new network, how would I do this? Right now I am running the following: Regular Network - five 16-channel controllers and the three CCPs; Network A has six CCRs and Network B has six CCRs each with a USB-485 HS. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  22. This will be my fourth year with LOR. I was old school until last year when I added RGB to outline the house. This year I am adding a CCR screen. Hope to have Halloween online tonight!
  23. Do we have a place for information on CCR horizontal screen sequences? If we do, could someone please point me to it. If not, can we create one? I was thinking of a place where we might be able to share ideas and homemade props. Thanks.
  24. My CCR Screen is 17' by 4' with four inch spacing. Built the frame with PVC pipe and covered it with chicken wire. Will be attaching the CCRs with white zip ties.
  25. I will run my show mid-month - October 16 - 31. Then I will just leave the RGB lights on the house until the Christmas Show. If we get bad weather at the end of December, neighbors might just see the house decorated for Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day!!
