  1. PixCon16 Hardware Test

    Thanks so much... I went of You tube and found to helpful videos.
  2. Hello Early Light Enthusiast I have created a monster and need someone's assistance to tame it... Facts: 1. 4 - 83 amp 12 volt power supplies (each one sending power to one bank of 8 channels) 2. 2 - PixCon 16 LOR controllers 3. 180 Pixels per channel of (DC12V waterproof full color 12mm WS2811 led pixel) - Each operate at DC 12V, 0.3W/led 4. Apparently the total Watts per channel is 54 with a total of 4.5 amps 5. HOW can I bypass the controller load and stay under the 4 amp limit per channel without reducing the number of pixels per channel? 6. Can I send power from the board ONLY to first 3 set of 50 pixels, THEN add an INJECTION 12V lead to the remaining, but keep the DATA connected? I am assuming that since 3 sets of 50 at 15 Watts per set then the total 4.5 amps per channel. This would keep the total of the bank at 36 amps. Since I am new to the Pixel world, I knew there are most of you that would have the answer. Your support in this is greatly appreciated. Let me know if this would work, before I spend all the time creating this. Thanks SantaLudy

  4. IT appears that the SuperStar program is causing the issue. I can remove the SS sequence from the Main Sequence Editor and the problem appears to go away. The issue that is concerning is that it only happens on a few of the sequences and not all. DOES anyone have any thoughts about what the interference is that is causing this? I am exhausted and tired. Thanks for any ones support in this Santa Ludy
  5. I have narrowed down the main issue, but working out how to resolve it. It appears that that a few of the SuperStar sequences that I loaded into Sequence Editor has something out of sync with the compatibility to the SE. When I remove the sequence from SE, then save the file and run it, it appears all is normal. Once I load up that SS sequence back into SE, then it is causing a configuration issue with the channels. If and when I get resolution, I will post.
  6. Yes, it is a good question. I was just searching for a road less traveled, to get a quick visual. I have been doing that, but because of it being daylight hours, it is difficult to see what is actually going on with the various lights, until sundown. I have noticed on a couple of the sequences under the SE, that when I transferred the sequences over to the new computer that the Superstar row still has the file from my other computer. Instead of using one that I have revised with and saved with the new computer and saved the intensity file under that file location. Well, I will see tonight if that is the issue. I just cant imagine anything from a Hardware or Software being the issue, SINCE the other 16 sequences are working fine. It has to be that Santa has been over worked setting everything up with the new computer crashing and having to reload Windows 10 back up, then reload all back up files onto new computer. SOMETHING had to go wrong with all the changes. Thank you for your quick response and assistance.
  7. I ran the verifier and found one file attached to my Superstar sequence that was from an old file. That was the only issue that I seen out of all the sequences. I am not sure if the configuration I upgraded to each sequence is the SAME. How can I visually see what configuration that is in each one, without attempting to load each one up with a Configuration that be my issue?
  8. I have operating LOR controllers for years. When I would normally have an issue, it would be because of configuration, network, Cat-5 or COMM port issues. This time I can't put my finger on this issue. Out of 20 sequences, 4 of them are showing erratically from some of the controllers. Why would the rest of the sequences work fine, but when these 4 show, that I am having this issue? Is it an audio file (using Mp3) or something hidden in the channel configuration that I can't see. A little history here. I am using a new gaming computer this year and transferred everything over. Of course it took some time to configure everything. But why would 4 of the sequences not function correctly when they use the same hardware? ANY suggestions are welcomed. SantaLudy
  9. I had the controller working correctly, until I unplugged a channel from the connection on the board, with the board powered up. After I reconnected the channel on the board, all of the eight channels remain on. Since that time, all the channels on that bank remain on while the other bank is working correctly. Do I need to Reload the Firmware in order to regain control of the lights on that bank of channels? Lost in my own mind
  10. I have loaded up two separate pictures with a GIF format. When viewing the Preview window in PE, the animation GIF file is present and working correctly. When I view the lights, they are unresponsive, but will work fine with JPEG pics with no issues. Is there anyway an animation format pic will work in PE?
