  1. For some reason only 1/2 of the ports of my (4) pixie16 ports work. All ports on each controller turn on lights in HU test, all 16 ports send data to the pixel strips. However, when I play the sequence in Pixel Editor the lights do not come on for ports 10-16. On all four controller it's as though prop definition doesn't recognize I have 16 ports. Any idea?
  2. Roger that, good advise!!! I inadvertently deleted my 2018 show 6 days shy of go live! I am trying to fix what I believe is a possible bug issue... My circuit count is off- just wrote another post for help. Window frame 59 pixels, overlap should be 9, however, it's reading 58. WTHeck!
  3. Hello, I had a similar issue last year... I was told to upgrade my dongle from the (Black) USB485 to the (Red) highspeed USB485 dongle. The issue was that dongle was unable to read the mix of AC controllers with the Pixie 16's. Fixed my issue... Hope my comments were relevant.. Thanks, Rousefamily5
  4. Hello, I am running 4.3.18 Pro, however, I see 4.4.4 is available. My question, "If I update to the newest version will I erase my programming for the 2019 show?" Thanks, Rousefamily5
  5. Hello, I am setting up my Pixie16's. In the pixie editor under the Preview Design my prop definition for window frame I have a total of 59 pixels. By my count that's a carry over of 9 circuits over the 150 circuits. Max for each channel is 170 circuits. My start circuit is 1, and max circuit is set to 170. Everything looks find, I think. network: Reg; Unit ID (ok); start Circuit 1, End Circuit 170 (or 150), carry over is 58... Does anyone if this is a bug related? Thanks, Rousefamily5

    Starting out

    Hello kdunn, Great job upgrading... You'll enjoy every bit of the addition! Answers: 1. Mounting controller - I tent to mount my controllers as close to the prop or on the prop. Depending on your specific display this should reduce the number of power cords. 2. LED/Electric- Not knowing your specific layout, design, etc. Usually the LED bulb consumes much less power than the incandescent bulb(s).You shouldn't need to do anything specific with power. In 2016 I added 40 AMPS of additional power for various reason, (1) I was still running hundreds of incandescent light and (2) my display was growing. My electric bill was bwtn $500-$700 (Colorado)for the entire season. Slowly switching out from incandescent to LED my electric reduced and I could add more light using less power. 3. Yes, again, not know your specific layout, design etc. the controller plugs into the standard three prong extension cord and/or outlet. I recommend visit YouTube, there are many videos available to walk your through your design. I have started a VLOG where I'll attempt to answer these specific type of questions: peter rouse xmas (YouTube). 4. roof line- I think YouTube is a very good starting point to find the answer(s)... There are many moving pieces to your questions i.e. clips, type of lights, number of strands of lights, how are you attaching them, etc. Your biggest cost should had been the cost of the LED's. I am converting over to both smart and dumb Pixel's this year. Dumb pixels will go outline the house. Pixels are more costly upfront but more saving in the long run... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieo3queGJC4 (#1 VLOG) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kk0hj_GXT1Y (2017 light display) Good luck and keep 'em lit! rousefamily5
  7. I'm sorry. Yes, all my controllers are LOR product. CTB16PC 4 ea CTB04-PC 1 ea New: Pixie 16 controller 1 ea Pixel tree kit 2 ea
  8. Hello, I need some help. I have three 16 channel controllers for my incandescent and LED lights- loved my 2017 show. This 2018 I'm integrating pixels into my show. I purchased two 8 channel pixel trees, one 16 channel (smart) pixel controller (windows), one dumb pixel controller (house outline), and power supply. I've upgraded my license to Pro and I am ready to start programming. Seriously behind- normally programming in July-August. How do I upload my pixel controllers into last year's sequence editor/show? Or do I build a new show- still not clear how to add pixels. Any advise? Please help! ;o) Thanks!
