  1. Christmas Eve Sarajevo

    Very nice, great shot with your drone.
  2. Neighbors

    I enjoyed a number of hand made treat baskets, cards and thanks at my door this year. One especially heart felt was a huge card with 20 or so hand drawn pictures and messages from a local daycare. I've been doing a display for 27 years and now have young families bringing their kids to enjoy the same experience they grew up with. Over the years there has even been three marriage proposals. I think living in a small town in the North for so many years has helped a bit but honestly I think most people really do appreciate the effort it takes to provide an activity and memory. I know I still can remember that house that my family always had to visit as part of our tradition. I suspect everyone who belongs to this forum have left a lasting impression, hopefully all good.

  3. Problems with show

    Strange indeed. With a new PC might be worth upgrading your windows to something a little newer and reinstalling S3. You could also just save your sequences and upgrade your LOR software. Based on your description I feel this is probably a software issue causing this to bump off. I know I have had issues with my schedule in the past when I have too many things running in the back ground on my PC, open the task manager and close any programs you don't need and put your PC in airplane mode or disconnect from the WIFI as auto updates and firewalls can also create issues with your schedule. Good luck.

    Ensure LOR control panel is running (little red bulb icon on your task bar should be showing) and that you have control lights checked in SE

  9. One Half of CCR Ribbon Stuck

    My experience is that ribbons are pretty fragile despite great effort to handle gently. Sometimes if you lightly press on the little components/solders that are located just before the pixels that are acting funky you may discover a solder crack or break. I have done a show fix with a strategically place zip tie to keep pressure on the break point to maintain a connection. Might help you limp through your show season while you wait for a replacement or repair.
  10. Connected but not communicating?

    Assuming you are running a dongle RS485 between your controller and computer, my only suggestion would be to try another Cat 5 cable and verify all the connections on the dongle and Cat 5 cable are seated. If you are using S4 and below to eliminate the hardware utility you could make a simple sequence and try to see if you can get your computer to communicate with your controller. Remember to select control lights.

  13. Driveway Arches

    Watch info mall for used pop up as the supports are often still ok. You bet let me know if you want to brainstorm. No plans to do arches as it may block my matrix above my garage door. Your going to love the floods as they create great lighting with many options for installation. This was also my first RGB device. Watch out its addicting
