  1. Don't forget to backup your sequences

    I recommend Google Drive for backups. It also keeps the 30 previous versions of each file for a few months so if you change a file and save it you can go back to the previous version.
  2. DMX & Unit IDs

    I had this working last year but I forgot how Unit IDs work on LOR controllers running in DMX mode. Is unit ID 1 channels 1-16, then unit ID 2 channels 17-32 What happens with a controller with 24 channels?
  3. Superstition

    Does anyone have Superstition by Stevie Wonder for singing faces? I see several old threads but don't want to post to them as they are so old. Please PM me if you have them. Thank you. 😀
  4. HELP LOST EVERYTHING DUE TO NOT BACKING THEM UP

    Couldn't you contact the police and parents and try and get the computer back?
  5. Shimmer vs Twinkle Question

    This is an old thread. I was surprised that I remember this thread when I saw the email come in. You cannot twinkle each LED individually, as they are all connected together. With standard LOR controllers, everything on each output does the same thing. There is no way to control individual bulbs.
  6. Switch: Gigabit vs. 10/100?

    If you are buying a switch, the difference between a decent 10/100 switch and a gigabit switch is minimal. Avoid the cheap plastic ones for less than $15. They go wrong quickly. Last year I used a D-Link rack mount switch in the garage. This year I no longer have a garage, so the switch will go in the kitchen and I have 4 Cat6 cables run to outside.
  7. Software choices

    I went with Advanced then Pro when it came out. I don't actually use any Pro features though. Unless you are on a badger, or want to spend it on more lights, get Advanced.
  8. LEDs at Lower Voltage

    Thanks. The lights are some standard light strings I got really cheap the other day. This year, a new design of lights came about which uses only two wires to control two series. Each LED is connected at alternate polarity. The effects can be created be reversing the polarity, although this means that there is no true static effect. Lights which will work on 30 volts are becoming rare and expensive. I put the voltage up to 32. This is the voltage of the lowest voltage string (If this makes sense) I have 5 strings, 4 36v and 1 32v. Surprisingly, both sets I had connected worked great first time. There is a slight noticeable difference in the 36 volt string on my power supply compared to on its supplied one. Thanks. It worked perfectly.
  9. LEDs at Lower Voltage

    I have 4 strings of 36v LEDs. Is it safe to use them on a 30 volt power supply? Because of the decreased voltage, will the current increase?
  10. New to Dumb RGB

    It is probably easiest for you to use something like the CMB24D, then, when your feeling up to it, expand into basic DMX (It isn't much more complicated than LOR). Don't worry about DMX universes and E1.31 yet.
  11. What will I need

    I don't quite understand what you are asking. You don't use the standard Light-O-Rama controllers (Like the CTB16PC) for RGB lights. You use low voltage controllers (Like the CMB24D). These let you change the colour and synchronize the lights with music. All Light-O-Rama controllers, as far as I am aware, allow you to control the lights from a computer. You need to program sequences to each song in the sequence editor.
  12. What will I need

    RGB lights don't work with standard controller. You use RGB controllers for that.
  13. mini transformer for lights

    They are either 5v or 12v. Cut off one, and try it on 5v. If it works, you are good. If it doesn't, try 1 on 12v. 12v is better, as they normally have cheap tiny wire, and the voltage drops.
  14. mini transformer for lights

    I have never seen them with a USB connection.
  15. Is there a way...

    If your main PC is playing the show, you could not have any sound come out of that computer, or it would come out of your outdoor speakers and FM transmitter. Last year I used Google Drive on my show PC. I could edit files, and they would update on the show computer. You could even just create a shared folder on your main PC, and map it as a drive on the show PC. All files would be synchronized across instantly.
