  1. Thanks for that Dennis. My stress levels have gone down. I had an idea that it was possibly something in that area. Will get onto lor for part numbers etc. At least I won't be disapointing the family and friends who want to see the show up and running. Thanks again, Mario
  2. Hi Gang, I was all ready to go with 32 channels, had some tests and the display looked good. Then one night there was a short in a ropelight section ( a bit of arcing and a little smoke from where the rope joins the ac cord).. I have dumped the rope and replaced it with another. Problem is that this new rope is on all the time and is not controlled by lor. All the other channels work fine (luckily). To me it appears that during the short a resistor or diode has crashed and has locked that channel in the 'on' position. Please note that my knowlegde of electronics is not up there!. So it looks like I will have to get the faulty unit to lor for repair( I dont have a problem with this). My question is, can I continue to run the display(with no lights plugged into the offending channel) for the duration without causing a major melt done of the rest of the system?? Any ideas?? Thanks, Mario
  3. Hi George, (and others who responded).Thanks for the feedback. I agree with your comments after having tried a few combinations. thanks again, Mario.
  4. Thanks for that John. I was thinking on those lines myself. It can be a little hard to determine the colours used when watching the videos on the net, probably due to the video quality etc. Thanks again, Mario.
  5. Howdy from New Zealand! Am about to lace the light strings around my pvc for the arches (4 of them- 6 chanels each) and was wondering whether to use all clear bulbs or multi coloured bulbs. For those people who have put these together, what looks best, all clear or all multi coloured or a mixture of both?? I could put one together to see, but if it doesn't look right I would have to redo the whole thing and Christmas is nearly here!!! Any ideas would be most welcome. Cheers all. Mario.

  7. Hi All, Well, here we go! Have finished putting together my 16ch LOR(CTB16PC). I have it hooked up to the PC as per instuctions and over the last week or so have made a musical sequence. Ran the hardware utility and configured the unit. The lights (connected to the LOR) work fine in the hardware set up but do not work when using the sequence editor. I have spent some time making sure that all the boxes are ticked(or not ticked) and still no joy. Am I missing something? Is there some really stupid that I'm not doing? Hope someone can help.. Cheers, Mario

    leaping arches

    [align=left] Hi There, I have a question about leaping light arches.[/align][align=left] I have seen some being constructed on UTube and, for example, one person had 9 strings of lights per arch. Would this mean that there would be 9 channels of a LOR contoller used to get the fx as seen. If so, if I had 4 arches with 9 stings of lights per arch, that would be a total of 36 channels used, am I right?? Or is there a special technique used?? Thanks.. [/align]
