  1. Joel, First off let me thank you for the solution to my weather problem. I was using a some coding last season that was very clunky, it kinda worked but would fault out quite often. I found this thread back in march and it solved my problem beautifully. By the way it is working perfectly on windows 7 fyi. this weekend I moved me show computer to the basement for the season and found that the weather wasn't updating. I couldn't figure out what the problem was the error had something to do with writing to the output file or something of that nature. Anyway I found you newest release and that fixed my problem. so after 2 hours of scratching my head a simple update fixed everything. Thanks again for you work, the solution is awesome!!
  2. I was having trouble with zara dtmf tones since moving to a 64 bit machine. I eliminated them all together and now use a program called AutoIt V3 to create a executible macro to call keyboard commands to start zara playing. Wors great in fact better, no more tones playing.
  3. Going to try compressed sequences. If I remember correctly in the past some of my sequences will cut the first second or two of the sequence when using the compressed version.
  4. I had this error tonight also, although I have seen this before but it always seemed to recover. I will investigate when I get home from work tomorrow morning when I have more time to research.
  5. Jerry, That sucks.... I was woried about doing the same thing so much this season I used two different Molex connectors for each kind of strip that way I didn't inadvertently hook up the wrong strings. As soon as I finish this post I will also be making a not to stick on the controller so I don't forget for next year.
  6. I have been having problems each night for the last for the last 2 and a half weeks. Show completly shuts down. Upgraded Monday night and Tuesday was the first night the show ran wih to errors. I would recommend at least updating to the 3.x.2 bug fix. Thanks Bob for fixing this!!!
  7. rns Has your problem been corrected? I have the same problem here, Each day before I run the show I need to reboot. Looking to correct the same problem another way. EDIT: No sooner did I write this I saw Bob's post about a memory leak. Will try downloading the bug fix
  8. I was attempting on using this software this year http://www.nchsoftware.com/broadcam/index.html in order to elimate the adds ustream uses. It will also put the entire stream under my control. It basically turns your computer into a streaming server. The stream is fine if you have 1 or 2 people watching but once you go over that most internet speeds will not suffice. Tested it on DSL, Cable, and Fios. DSL and Cable were ok with only 2 streams going out. FIOS was best hopefully can get that for next year! If i remember corectly you can configure an IP camera to work. While I haven't tried it I remember reading about it.
  9. I have run mine throught adobe audition to normalize all songs used in a show, it is nice it samples all music and averages the amplitude of everything. As a secondary precaution I have a Compressor/Limitor hooked up on the output of my computer prior to my transmitter. Helps while running zara during the day.
  10. Once again Mike great show. Can't wait to show it to the kids they love watching it every year!!
  11. I got the multicamera feed back up, it still needs a little work (two cameras still not looking good) but it is there if anyone is interested in checking it out. The link is posted above.
  12. PMC, Nice camera enclosure where did you get that fixture. I may need to steal your idea after all the problems I am having this wear with moisture!!

  14. Mike, I am not running compressed sequences. When I have that turned on, some of the sequences clip on the front. These are sequences from previous years so I am assuming that is what is causing that issue. The other thing I will mention to you is that I use a phone request line, when a call is received it re-writes the the schedule file and runs the appropiate sequencs then reverts back to the default schedule at the end of the sequence currently running. I ran this the past 2 years with no problems. It ran fine up until the DMX error last week. (about 2 weeks) I don't think they are related but thought i'd pass that info along also.
