    Who ever at LOR told you "LOR states it's a little bug and will be fixed with next firmware update this summer." was correct. People are not going to have it running at 1000 until we release the firmware. It looks good, is being tested and will be released shortly. Best regards, Dan Light O Rama, Inc.
  2. Upgrade Sequencer

    To move back to 3.9 you will need to uninstall 3.12. The uninstall is done by using the windows control panel and uninstall a program. The uninstall will not remove any of your LOR sequences. HOWEVER you should always have your sequences backed up, Once the 3.12 is removed you can download 3.9 from the software download page (near the bottom) .... http://www1.lightorama.com/sequencing-software-download/ Then run the installer to get 3.9 onto the machine. If you have problems you can get help from the LOR help desk at: http://helpdesk.lightorama.com/
  3. Sound like the musical sequence will help as they are forced to stop. One thing I will mention here is that the input connecting LOR to the alarm system should be implemented in such a way that it is isolated from the alarm system. Perhaps an optical connection. Our equipment is not certified to for use in medical applications or other critical applications such as alarms systems. In this particular case where the alarm system is simply influencing LOR to do something with some lights (that is not a critical part of the warning or notification system), it seems a reasonable thing, but we would never condone using LOR equipment as a critical part of a system responsible for someone's life. In the past (maybe still) LOR controllers were used to control street lights in a South American country. CTB16D controllers running in standalone mode would sequence the street lights through Green/Yellow/Red.. Never heard of any issues BUT applications like that require "special" hardware and should not be LOR. Best regards, Dan
  4. When is the sale?

    The 8 pack RGB floods will be in the sale and they will be less expensive than last years mad grab. We will have most of the items and prices listed tonight and some special additions tomorrow.
  5. When is the sale?

    Dan who? That must be a different Dan... I don't do much on Facebook (except a little family stuff).
  6. When is the sale?

    Hi Guys, The sale is this Friday, April 8th 9:00PM EDT. To answer folks that have put in a ticket or called LOR complaining that the gold and platinum member sale preference is not fair, well we have no such thing. Everyone is treated the same. The only way to join the email list is on the www.lightorama.com website. We will be sending an email out tonight with more detail. If you are planning on getting something at the sale remember to be quick! Best regards, Dan
  7. I did check in on this and it is (and was) #1 on Bob's list. We have not been able to reproduce the issue at this point and recommend that the workaround of the "long" list be used until we can get a fix out. We hope to have a solution quickly.
  8. I will check to see what is going on here. I have to believe that the solution is not a simple one or we would have release a fix by now. This time of year is very hectic at LOR. Besides what you see here, we handle 100s of phone calls a day as well as 100s of trouble tickets a day. Not an excuse but rather reality. I assure you that any issue with the show player will be given an extremely high priority.
  9. As I said in the other thread: For a number of years we have had a policy in place were we try to keep the forum discussions focused on using LOR software and hardware. Topics such as politics and religion are extremely emotional to people and lead to a degree of volatility that we do not want here in the LOR forums. Because we have seen such threads quickly escalate with horrible and embarrassing posts, the moderators react quickly to stop things. To some it may seem that the reaction is unwarranted but over the years this has happened so many times that we try to react quickly. Personally I would like to have more open discussions on off topics but unfortunately it just doesn’t work and this forum is not really the place for it anyway. To those who have written me to let me know that LOR is a horrible company, anti-Christmas, does not support freedom of speech and freedom of religion, etc… I can only say none of that is true and I am sorry if you feel that way. ------------ But in particular to this thread... No one is being banned due to this. As you mentioned, everything was okay with the thread until it wasn't okay and things turned... As you know such topics can get very emotional and we just shut them down. Regardless of any personal feelings about the topic, we need to keep the forums focused and try to keep things civil. Dan

  11. Summer Sale? Anyone got a scoop?

    It will be sometime between Saturday... Most likely in the morning ( the actual time will be when all the prices have been changed and checked and published).... (we will make it as early as possible on the Saturday).
  12. Summer Sale? Anyone got a scoop?

    As it is now, you will need S4 for configuration. It makes configuration much easier. The license renewal would be $29.95 (assuming that you are currently not eligible for S4). The 10W Floods will be on sale. I think that everything of consequence except software will be on sale.
  13. Summer Sale? Anyone got a scoop?

    They are true UV not purple. The UV LEDs are very expensive so the 50W UV Flood will be priced a little more than the 50W RGB. We used a light meter and the 50W UV flood (at the same distance) had about 30 times the lux output of a 40w T8 UV tube. We will have the prices in the store tomorrow. Dan
  14. "Summary: A CMB16D with firmware version 1.34 will always read the hardware unit ID switches. Attempts to change the Unit ID via the HU always failed..... " That is expected with version 1.34 of the firmware..... 1.33 was broken as the logic reading the switches always set the Unit ID to 01... Just a little more information: Earlier versions of the firmware acted differently. With the earlier versions you could change the Unit ID with the HWU but that change was only temporary. When you re-powered the CMB16, the Unit ID would revert back to the original ID (that could be confusing)... In addition with the older versions of the firmware, when you changed the Unit ID switches you had to re-power the unit to pick up the changes. Now it reads the Unit ID switches all the time and picks up the change in the Unit ID immediately. The reason for the change has to do with a change in standalone mode... With version 1.34 of the firmware, you can now adjust the speed of the sequence playing by adjusting the Unit ID switches. If you set the Unit ID to "F" "?" ("F" followed by any value) then the Unit ID is set to "0" "1" regardless of the setting of the Unit ID switches. The second value adjusts the speed of the standalone sequence. So to adjust that speed, the CMB16D is now constantly reading the Unit ID switches rather than only reading them once when it started up. Dan
  15. I need help identifying hand signal from my teen

    Some of the responses in this thread were totally disrespectful, immature and have not place in this forum. Please think before you post and when you post please do so with respect and a level of maturity beyond that of a 9 year old.
