  1. Does anyone have White Christmas (Superstar) by the Drifters? I agree to not sell or share this sequence with anyone. This request will be used for my private, personal use on my show only. I also understand the mere fact of making changes to the borrowed sequence and pasting it in to my sequence does not make it mine to share.
  2. What this came to in the end, was seven bad strands of lights. I purchased the ws2801 clearance 5v bulbs. They worked fine for about a week, then stuck lights on. Luckily I have six spares, and they work fine. I disconnected strand 15, as I still need another to replace. When I switched the bad strand to a working one, it was still bad. Did the reset procedure, checked all wiring, sequence test prior.
  3. I did have some weird coloring in the last CCBx2 box. I added and it went away. Go figure.
  4. The lights are staying on or off random. I did find two loose connections, which I fixed. But, one of the ones I fixed stayed on after a few sequences. Def a mystery...
  5. That does make the most sense. The wires/connectors were a bit funky to install in the first place. I'll report on what I find later today/tomorrow. Thanks. Ken
  6. No bad channels or strings. I wrote this in another post: I have a Pixie 16 running 16 W2801 C-9 bulbs. Some strands get stuck on, even after a particular sequence ends. If I re-cycle power, sometimes they go off, sometimes not. Also, some sequences reset the ones left on from the previous sequence. I checked all the hardware bulb settings, everything looks fine. I also checked the sequences, no issues there either. Is it a speed issue? My setting for speed is currently 8. I am currently at S5 version 5.3.12 I am using motion effects, could that be the issue?

  8. Thanks. I'll try that tonight. Hopefully not a blown channel.
  9. I have CCB's whereas some lights do not turn off after a sequence is played. they are connected to a Pixie 16 board, with 5v 70 amp power supply. Are they bad light strings? Is there an issue with the Pixie 16? Seems it only one or two of the same strings. Each sequence does not have anything active at the end of playing.
  10. So I have C-9 smart bulbs and using a Pixie 16 controller. My issues is that in the hardware configuration I am able to see all the bulbs light up under test. When I create the sequence, the playback looks good in the software, but not the actual sequence as I play it. I tried various props, but can't seem to find one that works. Any ideas on what prop to use for a standard megatree, using CCB's?
  11. So everything works fine. Changed out the 12v ps for a 5v one. Have a follow up question on the 3 wire dongles. Colors are red, yellow, black. Where do the colors go? Black = Red= Yellow = Data, ground, voltage. Found it....
  12. I learned S-5 in two weeks. If your a long time LOR user, then it's not that difficult. I got the, "You can't learn that NOW!" thing too. Challenge me will ya 🙂 The key to S-5 is the preview. If you have a second PC, load S-5 on that and transfer some of your S-4 sequences and play with them. In S-4 you could get away without the visualizer, but not in S-5, it runs the show. Your channel config is gone, and the preview is the end game. Take a pic of your house, put in preview and go from there. The sequencing is basically the same.
  13. This happened to me. I checked all my Preview settings and found one of my "bushes" had changed to the aux instead of regular. When I fixed that, the error went away.
