  1. Thanks for everyone's input. I greatly appreciate it. Some good news to report. I decided to try one of my kid's laptops instead. Slower machine but I thought try. In short, all is working great now on the older laptop. I'm guessing there is something running on my laptop (not on my kid's) that was blocking/inhibiting some network traffic to the controllers. Just a guess. Anyway, now at least I can move forward getting ready for Christmas now that Halloween show is working.
  2. Did that already With all my songs. The thing that is most frustrating is that it works fine when playing from Sequencer. What is different about playing from Show Player ? I even took the .LMS file created by Show Player and fed it back in to Sequencer and played fine. But when I took the same LMS file (produced by Show Player) and played in a Show, it has the out of synch situation again.
  3. When I've had something else running the sequence will have lag and stuttering but the music and lights still stay in synch. It's almost as if the lights think the song is 10% longer in duration than the music.
  4. Well, rebooted again and this time the lag is back. Xlights next year I think.
  5. It's not sleeping. I checked that a while back. Could just be coincidence. But strange its good first time through after reboot.
  6. So...I rebooted again, and the first time through the 1 song show, all was good. The second time, it started lagging a bit. I noticed the Windows lock screen had kicked in. I stood there and made sure no lock screen, and it seemed to run correctly. I've disabled the lock screen and will let run several times and let you know how it comes out.
  7. I should also clarify that by lag, I mean the lights lag the song. Music plays fine but very gradually the lights get out of synch and are behind the music.
  8. Thanks for the info. I addressed each if the items but still no luck. What's odd is that the lag is so consistent almost down to the millisecond. It's just about always the same with each run through the Show Player. It must be related to pixels though as i took a version of a song removing all pixels and it ran fine from Show Player. Wish there was a way to run multiple sequences from Sequencer since it runs fine there.
  9. Will try all the suggestions though most are already accounted for. Interesting on the interference though. How would that cause lag? Also, I'd think the loading would be better if I did load all before. The lag is not in loading but in the playback of the song.
  10. You are correct. Lag showing in both, but only when running from Show. Runs fine from Sequencer.
  11. I think I already do, as the LOR controllers run off the USB485 connector to the laptop while the Alphapix connects directly to the laptop via its ethernet connection. Doesn't that mean separate networks? I setup the DMX in LOR Network Setup with the Alphapix ip address. So my understanding was that the LOR software is talking to the Alphapix directly, not through the LOR controllers.
  12. I was quite sure all were but just double checked and a couple had a different bit rate while 2 were variable. I converted and will retry. Thanks.
