  1. Hi Thanks will make one now, I take you just make the number of channel you want and just turn on/off/fade etc randomly to make a filler sequence.
  2. Hi If you have finished running your sequence show and just want to have your lights on randomly is there such a function with LOR Thanks
  3. Hi I have a sequence that lasts 2min 32sec, but my audio is 3min 41sec Question how do i extend the timing to 3min 41sec so i can match sequence and song length. Thanks
  4. Yes got it thanks. Any short cuts on how to make lights and music go well together !!
  5. I have worked out how to add rgb channels !! now just need to make some sequences, any short cuts to match lights with the music ??
  6. Hi All First thanks for all your help I jumped in the LOR party !! I now have purchased 2 x CTB16-PC and 2 x CMB24-D i have 20 x 240v strings and 240v motifs for my CTB16-PC, then 4 x floodlights and 12 dumb RGB led strip lights for my CMB24-D i have planned where my lights go, i thought that would be the hard part....but now the sequencing...where do i start..i have a few 32 channel sequences. i have had a play with the sequencing software, at the moment i have 32 channels set up for 2 controllers i am thinking these are for 2 CTB16-PC boxes, what is the best way to add the 2 CMB24-D boards into the sequences. i can see i have unit 1 channels 1-16 unit 2 channels 1-16. Question is do i just add another controller (device type light o rama) but is that 8 channels or 24 channels (because 8 rgb strips but 3 colors??) and i then try and match each channel to the music. Thanks in advance lightsetup.docx

  8. Hi so the CMD24D will only take 30v, so it can take 8 rgb dumb led strips but the specs are: Color RGB LED Quantity 300leds / 5M Protection Waterproof / Non Waterpro View angle 120° Working input Voltage 12VDC , ≥6A Working power 72W/5M Working Current / M 0.35-1.2A Working Temperature -20 to 50°C so that makes 8 x 12v (96v) so that is to much to go on board? can you get lower voltage rgb srtips? or does it mean max of 30v per rgb strip connected ?? Phil
  9. Hi..Sorry and thanks for all your help, i am just trying to make sure i get it right!! I have bought a lot of Dumb RGB lights strips, thats why i am going CMB24D (think thats right board for these lights they have 4 wires) I have some motifs, xmas trees, santas etc made from rope lights that are 240v with no functions (planning on these plugging into CTP16-PC) I have a lot of LED strings lights input 240v output 31v which plug directly into the main power but the plus is a multi function transformer plug. i can change these adaptor plugs to non mulit function (planning on these onto CMB24D) Does this seem all ok. One more question when i get sequence for the Dumb RGB strips will one strip be 3 channels of sequences so 8 strips on 1 CMB24D board needs 24 channels of sequencing (8 strips 3 colors per strip) Thank You again for your help Phil
  10. Hi still trying to get my display ready for this year (first attempt) all you expert helpers out there would this work lightsetup.docx
  11. yep sorry to confuse people i am going 1 x CTP16-PC to control my 240v plug in lights, A CMB24D to control 8 RGB dumb led light on a xmas tree (8 uprights pieces of timer to form a tree shape) a 1 more CMB24D to control some more Dumb RGB strips along roof line, around windows and a few RGB spot lights....does this sound workable. One more question when you wire a strip light on a CMB24D board does that give you 3 channels, 1 x red 1 x green and 1 x blue, then you put 8 strip lights on 1 CMB24D board so that is 24 channels, per board?

    sequence

    HI If i have a CTP16-Pc controller that give me 16 channels of 240v lights/motifs etc and 2 x CMB24D boards one CMB24D for a tree with 8 2m rgb led light strips (dumb) and CMB24D for rgb led strip along gutter libe and indow plus some spotlights, what channel sequence am i looking for, is that 64 channel. ?? Thanks
  13. Hi I am pretty sure they are dumb strip ($12 for 5 metres) and looking at pics they seem to look like dumb) i will look at rays..thx
  14. ok understanding a bit more now, most of the led spotlights over here or in china have 23 or 3 wires, struggling to find them
  15. so the spot lights need 4 wires same as dumb rgb led light strips??
  16. I am thinking of this setup: computer to CMB24D (to run http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/252441412796?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&var=551301102472&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT) then rj45 to CTP16PC to run my lights motifs etc, then rj45 to another CMB24D to run spotlights (http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/10W-RGB-LED-Flood-Light-Spotlight-Outdoor-Waterproof-Lamp-Remote-Colored-Round-/112089940277?var=&hash=item1a1914c135:m:mdLxE4yP5JYvEM9-06CNHaw) does this sound ok ??

    lights

    Hi, I think i am ok with the RGB mine will be dumb type (a bit like me !!) It is just the CTP16PC controller my strings light are low voltage led light, which use a plug adaptor to take them from 240v down to about 30v the plug adaptor plugs directly into the the 240v house wall socket, I keep getting different answers some say i can plug these into the LOR controller CTP16-PC and some people say you can only plug 240v lights into it. Your thoughts please

    lights

    Thanks for your replies,My head is getting more and more confused i am better going: CTP16PC (residential starter kit) and a CMB24D or CTB16PC and a CMB24D I will be using low voltage led strings lights and motif shapes (father xmas, reindeers etc) on one board and 5m rgb led strips on the other. Any thought on best way to go before i purchase them Thanks
  19. Hi Where can i get lights to plug into http://store.lightorama.com/rese16chstpa.html this please I have been told LED light that run at low voltage through a plug adaptor make catch fire plugging them into the LOR controller.....please help me

    lights

    Hi Oilmoney I think i am confusing you a bit, my light were multi function light, but i have managed to change them to normal lights (on or off) so the set-up you mentioned computer's USB port to the USB-RS45 adaptor then use a cat 5 cord to the CTB16PC then another cat5 to the CMB24D. would work for me?? I was planning the CTB16pc controller would be outside and the CMB24D would be in the house as it is just a board and not weatherproof. I have some sequences for 32 channels do i need then for 40 channels if so how do i do that. Thanks for your input
  21. Hi This is going to be my first year, i am thinking of getting 1 x CTB16PC (16 channels) and CMB24D (i take it that is sort of 8 channels) I have already have lots of lights from previous years but they are all led with a multi function plug (12v) i have been told i cannot plug these into my LOR controller because of the controller on the lights. Question: If i turn the multi function controller to steady on and use a extension cord, when i plug the extension cord into the LOR controller will it just turn off the extension cord and not be influenced by the multi function controller on the lights ?? Not sure if anyone understands that...sorry One more question do i go from computer to USB Adaptor to CTB16PC then RJ45 to the CMB24D then use a sequence with 24 channels to run my light show? Thanks Phil
  22. Hi if i buy a residential starter pack and a CMB16D-QC will it do the following (i am in australia) I can plug 16 channels of light into the main box via plugs can i wire 5m rgb led strip lighs (http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/252441412796?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&var=551301102472&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT) into the cmb16d-qc ? what power pack do i need for the cmb16d-qc, or just it get the power from the CTB16PC controller Does this give me 32 channel's ? Thanks Phil

    Hi All Thanks for all your comments still a little confused maybe if i ask another question what lights do i need to use with the lor residential starter pack, must they be 240v lights ? will these work: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/5050-RGB-5M-LED-SMD-300-LEDS-Strip-Light-12V-DC-IR-Controller-Power-Adapter-/322008162943?var=&hash=item4af92ea27f:m:mowNmHvEYMQvWnI2MnlGj-w Thanks
