  1. Anyone doing Despacito?

    Might be completely worn out by Christmas, but 3 BILLION YouTube views.......
  2. RJ45 Ports - Outside?

    That is a nice method - I was going to run a short piece of conduit and then wall mount the box. I like this concept better - nice and clean
  3. I am looking into running some CAT6 through the attic to 4 RJ45 ports on the left side of the house. I run a mix of LOR and e1.31 through a dedicated router and PC on the far right side of the house. In previous years I had to run the cables across the entry way to connect all the controllers. I have a pretty good understanding of LOR network and star topology so I am fine there. What are some best practices for installing RJ45 ports outside? I am in Florida (so no snow) and thinking I'll just place an exterior rated wall box with a short peace of conduit up through the soffit right under the eave. Then some sort of of flip cover over all the plugs. Anyone have a similar set-up? Rust issues?

  7. TSO - Paul O'Neil has passed

    Sad day for many of us - may have to double down on TSO this year Paul O'Neill, the Tampa-based rock composer and mastermind of one of the biggest touring acts in the world, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, has died at age 61. The entire Trans-Siberian Orchestra family, past and present, is heartbroken to share the devastating news that Paul O’Neill has passed away from chronic illness. He was our friend and our leader -- a truly creative spirit and an altruistic soul. This is a profound and indescribable loss for us all. We ask that you respect Paul’s family’s privacy now. We will make additional announcements shortly. [Admin Note: Thread Merged]

  10. Comm Listener error 3: Comm Winsock Error

    Success - thanks so much!
  11. Comm Listener error 3: Comm Winsock Error

    Okay, makes sense on the DMX port - I will update those to "5568" is "8877" appropriate for the COMM listener port?
  12. So took a shot at expanding the system a bit with a SanDevice 6804 and now stumped. Issue: "Comm Listener error 3: Comm Winsock Error" about every three seconds whenever I add the DMX network to the LOR Network Configuration panel. Nothing will then work as I am getting this error repeatedly. Current System: 11 CTB16s - pushing about 28k LEDs 4 CMD-24D - pushing dumb ribbons and LOR floods USB485B v4.1.2 Advanced on dedicated light PC Light PC is a HP laptop with Win7 What I have done: Laptop wireless is off (via hardware switch) and the laptop and SansDevice are on their own dedicated network with unique router. I can navigate to the SansDevice website from laptop and run a test pattern just fine (rules out a lot). LOR network is running on COMM5 and works just fine as long as no DMX networks are in the LOR Network Configuration panel. SansDevice is set to Multicast (I have tried unicast as well) I have tried just adding one universe as well (versus the two in screenshot) - same issue Thoughts on what else I can do to resolve COMM issue? I found some old info in forums, but nothing recent that seemed applicable (v3, reinstalling windows, Smart DMX, etc).
  13. Halloween -- SCARY

  14. CBD24 & deep cycle battery

    Nice!- this was our second year thinking in all 12v and mobile (including speakers/amp and extra laptop power). Good little challenge for the brain Toying with adding a Easy Light Linker and helping a buddy set-up his cart as well - Deliverance Golf Carts could happen!
  15. CBD24 & deep cycle battery

    I have used this type of set-up before - two CMD24 - 8 LOR floods and a bunch of dumb RGB lights Light display in a golf cart parade - I run the lights off a deep cell battery so no risk of running out of juice in the real golf cart batteries.
