  1. Uninstall S5?

    Thanks folks! I made the leap. Things seem to work well. I haven't tested a show yet. Still catching the visualizer up with the hardware changes. I do know, I'm going to miss S5. Maybe I'll buy a new mini director when the tax returns are done. Thanks again, Scott
  2. Uninstall S5?

    Since I can't seem to get my CCP arches working in S5 with my pre Gen3 mini director, I think I'm going to have to revert back to S4. I'm running out of time before Christmas. Since I added 4 arches and a second 16 Channel controller, I have to update/modify most of my sequences. I've only worked with two sequences in S5, so there isn't much to do there. The question: has anyone uninstalled S5 and reverted to S4? Do I have to manually uninstall S4 first? Would just installing S4 overwrite S5? Thanks Scott
  3. Pre gen3 mini director

    The network is set as a regular network that is not enhanced. The ".play.lms" file is 43,266 KB. The ".play.lms.pe.lid" file size is 1KB. Scott
  4. Pre gen3 mini director

    I'm still having a problem. I think S5 is creating a subsequence (or something similar). I remember that the mini director won't run subsequences. The sequence created by converting the SS sequence was able to play. However, the full sequence won't play the arches. I've included some screenshots. What did I miss? Thanks!
  5. Pre gen3 mini director

    Awesome, thanks Thanks for taking time to answer folks questions. I'm sure you're insanely busy having a beta running just before Halloween and Christmas. Scott
  6. Pre gen3 mini director

    Thanks Matt.Can it be programmed they way I did in S4? That would be doing the arches in SS, then converting to a sequence and copying into S5.Would I be better off going back to S4 until I get a Gen 3? So an obvious next question, will the Gen3 Mini Director work or will I need the G3 MP3 DirectorScott
  7. Is anyone else using a pre-gen3 mini director with CCP strings/controllers in S5? I'm having difficulty getting the CCP portion of the show to work on the hardware. It's fine in the preview. I'm hoping it's working for someone else. Thanks
  8. Enhancement request - back to start button

    Thanks for the help folks!
  9. Thanks! That solved my programming difficulty. I can now program the group in SS from S5. It plays correctly in S5. Now to figure out why it doesn't play on the mini director. Thanks again.
  10. Enhancement request - back to start button

    Awesome, thanks!
  11. It would be extremely helpful if there were a 1 click way to return to the beginning of the sequence. That would be handy in both S5 and SS. Scott
  12. Likewise, this one is probably me... I still can't get my arches to play. They work in the preview, but apparently there is nothing on the card. The arches are CCPs -two strings per controller, one string per arch. The SS4 version with 2 arches works. I created the preview from scratch and created the SS sequence using the insert function. I have a group for the arches. However, I had to sequence the arches one at a time. SS didn't behave well trying to program the group. Maybe someone can see what I missed. Thanks Scott
  13. MP3 Showbuild error

    I went through the process of assigning the network and units to the preview, even though everything showed correctly. That seems to have taken care of the two controllers. The three CCP controllers power up, but don't respond to the show. Since one CCP controller worked last year when programmed by SS4 and SS. So, I'm left with the conclusion that there is something I missed when programming in SS5 and SS or I need to update the firmware for the Show Director. I'm inclined to think it's in the programming. What did I miss? Thanks Scott
  14. Did you find a solution? I have been unable to check/update the firmware on my mini director. Thanks
