    Delayed / repeated E-Mail notifications

    Jim, I took a look at the email logs. Your email address shows up there once or twice with 'connection refused.' Unfortunately I don't get any help from the logs to know *who* refused the connection. I've alerted the powers that be, and see if (or when) they say anything about it.

    I thought I saw some oddities, but figured it was due to some changes in my email setup that I'm doing. I'll notify the appropriate people so they can look at it.

    2018 Spring Sale

    Folks, We're not going to play this game of gold/silver/platinum/whatever memberships. The help desk does get tickets about this, and it gets old answering them. Seriously, to put it nicely, stop that. (Or bluntly, knock it off.)

    two controls with the same address????

    Well, to be fair, that thread wasn't posted when the OP asked the question. It was added shortly after..
  9. A listing of questions that are frequently asked, and an answer. Question: Can I have two or more controllers with the same address? Answer: This is technically possible. The controllers listen for data that is intended for them. If you had 15 controllers all listening for UnitID 03, then all 15 would respond to commands for 03. Note: Multiple controllers with the same address could make it a little more difficult to troubleshoot issues that may be happening in the display. Example: You are having a problem with Unit 03, but which Unit 03? When you pull up the Hardware Editor, you are going to have two 03's in there. Question: Why does my second generation Pixie controller keep resetting to ID 01? Answer: The second generation Pixie controllers have DIP Switches that can be used to set the address. Please see the product documentation to see how the address is set for your device. You can use either the Hardware Utility OR the Dip Switches. Question: Do I have to connect the controllers in numerical order? Answer: The controllers to NOT have to be connected in numerical order. You may connect the controllers in any order you wish within a specific network. (What is a Network? FAQ to come.)
  10. Backup your sequences! If you are new to Light-O-Rama you may not be aware how much time goes into creating your sequences. However as time goes on you start to realize that it can take a lot of time. One thing you should do is make frequent backup of your sequences. This save you an enormous amount of time should you run into problems. Please note: It is best to save a copy of your work on a different computer. If your computer is lost, stolen or just dies, any backups stored on that same machine would be lost to. There are several ways to backup your sequences. Each of them will have their advantages and disadvantages, but each of them will save you time. Here are just some backup methods. 1) Copy the files to a flash drive or SD card. 2) Copy the files to another computer in the house. 3) Use a backup program (Crashplan, Mozy, etc.) to backup your sequences off site. 4) Use a file synchronization program (dropbox.com, etc.) to have a copy of your sequences saved 'in the cloud.' 5) Copy the files to a CD every night. Remember: You should save the sequence files and the audio files. It might not be a bad idea to backup your entire LOR data directory. This is *usually* in the "Light-O-Rama" folder within your "My Documents" directory.

    FYI - "HELP" posted multiple times in multiple forums won't magically make people suddenly have extra time to contact you right away. It's the busy time of year for everyone, so post once, describe the problem, and wait for someone to be able to help.
  12. Welcome to the Sequence Sharing forum. There are plenty of people here who are willing to share their sequences with you. Before you post a message asking people to send you their sequences, please take a look at the messages already here on the forum. Chances are you will find someone who is willing to share their sequence with you right now. Of course if you have a special request, or something else out of the ordinary, then by all means post away. Please note: The purpose of this post isn't to shame anyone from posting a request for sequences. It's only posted to point out that there are sequences available for you, today! You just need to read the current posts here in this forum to find them.
