  1. Are you trying the firmware update one at a time? I would guess not since you would have stopped at the first firmware failure. Plug the cat5 from the PC directly into the first failed ccr controller and the other jack empty. Try the firmware update again. If you give up.. don't throw them away I will take them!
  2. I dont upload to youtube. All my videos are on vimeo and all are marked private so they are not found by searches. They are only seen by people who see a posted link.
  3. That product faded away in 1994!
  4. Are you saying you this happens with all file saves? I thought you were talking about within SE. If you cant save any file at all that is a different thing. Maybe try saving to a usb stick.
  5. You can upload to dropbox or some other host and send me the link. or you can zip it and send me the zipped file via email.
  6. Please send me a broken file you are unable to save. Itsmebobo@ yahoo.com
  7. Of course I was inviting discussion about using the chewed cord. The covers however are not upside down. They are the only mountable position which is usable. Unless you are 6 inches tall, when the outlet is close to the ground you cant see under them to plug cords in or see the indicator lights.
  8. Many types of strobes has been part of my display. I do like the white in this video but I dont like the blue which are much dimmer. These 5mm are wrapped to make them very close together with halogens below. I dont like the LED globe strobes. Not nearly bright enough by 10. Dont believe it when you are told they are just as bright. Some blink once a second and other 3-4 blinks a second. More blinks better.
  9. Right side near bottom. That is a lot of chewing. I only find damage on the ground wire so will continue to use this one.
  10. No not related to file size. If you are hearing a crackle on headphones I would think its the audio output jack.
  11. try turning down the volume to your FM transmitter. Mute everything else.
  12. Autoflip works the same for S4 and S5. https://vimeo.com/254073093 1) Have Autoflip open ( its waiting for you to save a clipboard) 2) Save a clipboard with an instruction in the name. (end in -ho for a horizontal flip) 3) Open clipboard selector to see new clipboard (new one end -hf) 4) Select the clipboard to paste with it (usually by time, both both)
  13. Verify all the adapters in your network preferences are connected. I have noticed in the past everything would seem to freeze up when any were not present.
  14. The old CCR macro channels work like this. Resolution means "how many pixels control 50?" 50 controlling 50 is normal which means you are not multiplying at all. The macros were never upgraded to work for strings longer than 50. And S5 does not preview macros. I have used them extensively in S4 so this is a barrier for me to move to S5. If you set the resolution to 1 that means the first pixel in your sequence will control all 50 pixels on the lights. This is a short cut: when your want your entire string to be white.. you set pixel 1 white and resolution to 1. Setting resolution to 2 means first 2 pixels of the sequence control first 25 and second 25. My friend JR refers to resolution in HWU. In your sequence you do not need to specify 50 in resolution all the time to control 50 pixels of string with 50 pixels in your sequence. You just leave it blank/zero. The HWU value is used when the sequence does not have a value which is a good multiplier. Blank/Zero is not a good multiplier so 50 takes its place. The only possible values which work in sequence and in HWU are Resolution 1 controls 1 group of 50 using pixel 1 in the sequence Resolution 2 controls 2 groups of 25 using pixels 1-2 in the sequence Resolution 5 controls 5 groups of 10 using pixels 1-5 in the sequence Resolution 10 controls 10 groups of 5 using pixels 1-10 in the sequence Resolution 16 controls 16 groups of 3 using pixels 1-16 in the sequence (end groups are one long) Resolution 17 controls 17 groups of 3 using pixels 1-17 in the sequence (center group is one short) Resolution 25 controls 25 groups of 2 using pixels 1-25 in the sequence Resolution 50 controls 50 pixels using pixels 1-50 in the sequence This S4 sequence, still in use, is about 7 years old. It has resolution 1 and moving blocks of pixels. How this macro looks is here in a really old video https://vimeo.com/96427319
