    Pixel Problem

    There are 800 pixels on this prop. Only 2 or 3 stay red.The Power supply is also running a large amount of dumb RGB stuff. The Pixels are in the middle of the string of 100 if that helps. HVACR
  2. I have 2 or 3 pixels that stay red when the show is off. Are these pixels dead? They stay on when power is applied with no network. Just cut'em out and replace them? HVACR

    Extension cord storage ideas

    I roll my cords on a large water hose spool. I get about 800 ft of 15ft cords on a spool. I have 5 spools full this year. HVACR

    Wrapping it up

    Another show comes to an end. It is sad the lights are no longer running. I had more people watching this year than any other. I think that was a successful show. Get to take it all down for storage. Going to start repairs and working on next year ASAP. Have a great new year!!! HVACR
  5. Pleasant people will be praised and obnoxious people will be tazed. Crowd control Texas style.

    ELL issues

    Same frequency, same network speed, Line of sight....... Both are getting power? Mine failed to power up on the RS485 to computer had to power from another source. You went back and checked that both units took changes?
  9. My have a bad RJ45 jack. I had one this year. Take 12 out and bypass also may be bad jack in 13.

    sorry-another newbie with problems

    WOW Lights has sequences that have a CCP tree sequence included with the deluxe. Just run the CCP as a sub-sequence. Lots of channels to expand to next year..
  11. I have logistics question. How are you networking this show? Crossing property lines and city streets. Just curious. Thanks.

    Pixie 8

    Flashing means it doesn't see a network. Should go solid when it is connected. Try the other RJ45 port. I had a bad one this year.
  13. I put the spoof "Let it Flow" in my show this year. Used the same sequence to "let it go" just changed the MP3.
  14. My first 2 shows were standard M5 led type lights. My daughter wanted different color lights around windows of the houses. Could not see doing with M5's in different colors with dunb RGB available. I added a total of 4 CMB24D controllers to my set up. Already had 4 16 channel AC controllers running M5 lights. This year I added a Pixie 8, 4 more CMB24D, and 2 more 16 channel controllers. What to do next year? Thinking of replacing some of the M5 type lights and re-purposing the 2 16 channel controllers to simple mega trees. Then add many more CMB24D controllers or add more PIXIE controllers. I have spent some time watching "Pixel Editor" videos on YouTube. I like how the program can build the show with a light template/drawing lay out of the show area. I guess my question is should I lean more into Pixels or are dumb RGB still ok to keep adding at this point?

    Random channels comming on

    Conduct a test. Remove the 4 pixies to a different network for temporary testing and run the 13 controllers. See if the problem is still there.
