  1. Thanks for that info. I was wondering about that.
  2. Is there a way to do a sequence in the pixel editor and transfer it to the sequencing editor? Are there any good tutorials on using the pixel editor? I have searched youtube and found some stuff but nothing that really helps
  3. I just went thru your tutorial really good info. I have one question i changed to the fastest speed, will that affect my regular controllers if I stay on one network. I am thinking of getting the red usb adapter. If I get one should i set up 2 networks. 1 for 16 channel controlers and 1 for RGB?
  4. i think i have figured it out, at least for now i have lights coming on and changing colors. i just need to figure out the sequencing part. dibblejr I will check your tutorial out i need all the help i can get.
  5. One thing I have noticed if it helps. When I have the Hardware utility open the light on the controller is solid red. If I close the utility the light starts blinking. So I am guessing I am having a connection problem but I am not understanding why
  6. Thanks for the response. I did figure out the unit ID. I don't know if you can tell me this or if someone else can. I know when I have my display set up I could control my lights with the sequencer editor if I needed to. Can the sequence editor control the ribbon also when I play the sequence? I feel like I am just missing something small that should be easy for me to figure out.
  7. I have 5 other 16 channel controllers. Do I need to put the CCR on a certain unit id like my 16 channel controllers. I had thought of that but I couldn't figure out what ID it has or how to change it.
  8. I have LOR standard software. I just bought a CCC2 with2 ribbons. To be able to use this in my existing display do I need to upgrade my software. Can I control the ribbons with the Sequencing Editor that I already have or do I need something else. I configured the controller in the hardware and tested the lights with no problems. I did a sequence by adding a cosmic color device in the sequence and tried to run the sequence with the CCC2 hooked up and the lights would not come on. I am new to RGB so this is all new to me any help will be appreciated.
  9. Thanks for the replies, Been watching You Tube a lot the last week. Ive been looking at the pixel tree on LOR site thinking that maybe the easiest way to start till I get the hang of pixels, controllers, and power supplies.
  10. I have an 80 Channel LOR set up right now with just incandescent strings. Trying to get into pixels for next year. Where can I find tutorials of what I need to buy, and how it works together. I have played with the Pixel Editor but it is still confusing to me and since my computer controls my lights I don't want to us my computer much till after Christmas so maybe watch videos until then. My set up now was fairly easy thanks to John Storms videos on YouTube He explains stuff well. Pixels scare me.
  11. Thanks for the replies. I am using the CTB17PC. I am actually wanting to use it on a firetruck in a parade. All of our local departments compete for the best decorated firetruck in our Christmas parade.
  12. Has anyone tried to run a light controller off of a power inverter in a vehicle?
  13. How hard is it to resolder the connector back in place. I have one that will not detect a connection and it feels loose. The other cat 5 connector works fine. Not sure what happened to it. It worked fine last year and got it out this year and it was messed up. Also can the controllers be hooked together with telephone wires?

    How long is the sleeve that you put in the ground? And do you use guy wires?

    Mega tree

    What do you guys use for the pole part of your mega trees and how do you stabilize the pole. I am doing a 13' and made it out of 2-1/2" PVC pipe. But I was thinking of maybe using something else.
  16. Could you send a copy this way lstewartff@yahoo.com Thanks
  17. Yea I was letting it sit for 10-15 min. and nothing. but good news. I turned in a help desk ticket and they helped me wipe out the LOR registry and reinstall. Now it is working. Maybe I can be ready for Christmas now. Thanks for all the responses.
  18. Ill try a restart. I shut it down earlier and nothing.
  19. Thanks for the reply. I will make sure to do that first. I just don't understand why it will not load the sequences when it was working the other day.
  20. IS there a way to uninstall LOR and reinstall without loosing any of my files?
  21. Ok this may be an odd question but here goes. I have had my LOR for one year. All of a sudden I am having trouble loading sequences into the editor. I can do a new sequence but when I play the sequence it will not play right. The music plays fine but the sequence hesitates. When I try to load a sequence it will not load and just says LOR sequence editor not responding. So here is my question if you don't renew LOR will the editor start doing this or do I have another problem? I just used it the other day and it did fine loading and playing sequences.
  22. Ducks. I noticed you said half-round tree. Why did you choose to do a half round tree? is it better than doing a full one or would it be a preference to who is building the tree? If you cant tell this will be my first big tree haha.
  23. just wondering how big a round the base should be for a 12 - 15' tree?
