  1. Bob and everyone else, Thanks for your information, have a family emergency to travel to so hopefully we can take is back up when I return
  2. Andy Was reading some posts over on AussieChris....on setting up Unicast. Since I have a separate NIC card which is manually set to (sound familar) do I need to do any settings under the DNS Server tab??
  3. I received the original one in early September and didn't start to test it until mid-November when it stopped working after a day or so. I sent it back to Ed and he found that the ethernet chip went south and he sent me a new board. So now to answer your question, It looks like the ones in your video, just doesn't work like the one in your video. Now, I had added a second NIC card to be dedicated to E1.31. I did add an "economical" switch (for anticipated additional P-2s) and then the p2 connects to that.
  4. Hi Andy, I cannot get the P-2 to respond in multicast, whether it is LOR, XLights or the test software from "da share" (link previously provided above) However, when I set XLights and "da share" to unicast, the lights work using each of the test sequencing and in XLights, the test sequence that I created in LOR and imported to XLights also works (in xlights) Trust me, I have watched your videos numerous times, to the point I think I know you personally.........LOL
  5. I didn't think Ed knew LOR interface. There's not any issues with his equipment (I believe)
  6. No, I have the P-2 not a P-12, That is why I mentioned in our emails that your P-12 setup has a tab for Port Selection, which isn't on the P2.. I also was given a link from Aussie Christmas to http://www.da-share.com/software/da_e131/ which is a E1.31 test software. Again, with this new software, the lights can be activated through unicast but nothing happens in multicast.
  7. I'm running LOR 3.11.2 advanced. The listener acknowledges universe 1 is connected Yes, I can import the test sequence I did in LOR into Xlights, convert it to "xseq" and it will play in xlights. Ultimately, I want to continue running the LOR controllers and pixels, would it help if I also connected a LOR controller
  8. David, Thanks for the screen shots. I've been over them a couple of times and I don't notice anything different in your settings to mine. LOR just wont connect to the P-2
  9. Looks like you're off to a great start,,,,,,,,,,,,,, What part of Florida you in??
  10. Correct, I can log into the card and setup the string configuration and also run the test pattern of the P-2. It's nice to know that the LOR sequence runs in Xlights, but the majority of my show is standard LED which are run through the LOR controllers and my intent to maintain the show through LOR S3. It must be something simple that is being overlooked since there are many members that are able to run their E1.31 with no issues
  11. OK, originally had problems with my P-2 but was found that it was a bad Ethernet chip which Ed replaced. Great customer service from J1SYS right before Thanksgiving!! However, I am still having issues controlling the P-2 through LOR. I’ll try to provide the current overview: Installed a separate Ethernet card in computer specifically for E1.31 use;Connected to a 4 port switch which is then connected to the P-2;Can connect to the P-2 using the default address. There is one string of (50) WS2811 pixels connected and they cycle correctly through the test pattern; andCreated a short 45 second test sequence in LOR S3 – nothing worked (I’ll circle back to this).Went to XLights Could not run the P-2 in Xlights while in multicast. Switched to unicast and all test patterns contained in Xlights work; andConverted the LOR test sequence to a Xlights sequence and the test sequence runs in Xlights (under unicast only).Now back to LOR USB-485B connected and open control panel. Com listener recognizes universe 1 and is “listening on port 5568”Under network preferences I have both the DMX listener port and E1.31 port set to 5568 (have tried this both with multicast and unicast;All of the 50 channels in the sequence are pointing to universe 1; andClick play (ensuring control lights is checked) and…………………………..NOTHINGWhere am I going wrong?? Fortunately I am not doing a show this year so I am not pressed to get this resolved immediately but would like to be confident in being able to run some pixels next year.
  12. Jeff Link isn't working Think I found it here http://www.ntcore.com/4gb_patch.php
