  1. I hate to pile on, but I too have this issue and no pixel controlling software or testers , except the LOR Listener/control panel is causing my issue. I've tried every combination I can think of and the issue only occurs with the LOR Listener running. No sequence of any kind needs to occur to see this, just fire up the LOR Control Panel. This may not be scientific or technical, but it's what I'm seeing. I do hope SOMEONE finds a solution before October, or I'll have to shelf the ton of pixels I purchased this year.
  2. I don't think the SD card has any capability to run a show as complicated as RGB Pixels.
  3. Thank you. I'll be starting new sequences soon.
  4. I can't get to dropbox from my location (work... shhhh...). Can you post a video to Vimeo or YouTube?
  5. I have 21 of the mini (2 ft) artificial trees. I removed the incandescent lights & replaced with LEDs. They look great day or night.
  6. I'm only speaking of the basement ELL. I use 5 ELLs in my show with very few issues. I have 1 in my basement "command center" I use, but just for testing..
  7. As stated line of site & high is a key. I had one on the edge of my house just out of line of sight (within inches) and it wouldn't work. However I could go to my basement and that ELL would run everything. Other side of house - no windows. Great for testing, but I doubt it would be reliable all season.
  8. If adding multiple GFCI's on a line, be sure they are wired correctly. They are not wired the same as if you have 1 GFCI and a regular receptacle down the line from it. They need to be connected to the LINE, not the LOAD. If you take an existing receptacle that's protected by a CFGI further up that line, and simply replace it with a 2nd GFCI, you will have pops all of the time. Take your 1st GFCI and change the LOAD wire and add it to your LINE. Then you can add the 2nd GFCI.
  9. If you are using wire-frames & incandescent, they are a pain. After switching to LED, I have had no issues with mine. I did limit the issue while using incandescents by coating the metal prongs (that go into the ground) with either a rubber dip or spraying with that stuff they sell to seal gutters. May be the same stuff in a different form. The other part of your question, Yes, if the non GFCI outlet is in parallel - further down the wire from a GFCI outlet. The one GFCI protects both.
  10. My whole show is about 30min. However halfway through I have my show closing voice-over, followed by TSO music with reduced volume and all lights on. I then have my show opening voice-over, followed by a new set of songs & voice-overs. This short TSO song with all the lights on study seems to keep cars moving.
  11. A couple years ago, I replaced most of my display GCFIs with a model that had a green lamp when working properly. Great for quickly identifying a popped outlet, or just peace of mind that at a quick glance, you know all GFCIs are up and running.
  12. As mentioned, FireSticks are no different than arches, so try researching arches. I've used my arches as FireSticks for the past 2 seasons. Some programming changes, but not many.
  13. GFCIs do go bad. Replace it with a new one. A regular outlet is cheaper, but offers no protection. Be sure you replace with a quality GFCI outlet. I should add that after a similar experience I discovered 2 GFCI outlets on the same circuit. Once I removed one, the circuit and GFCI worked normally.
  14. Thank you for the added details. I've been using LOR for so long, I don't always think in terms of someone new to this equipment.
  15. Both. I convert the new Xlights generated lms file from RGB channels to Universes, then copy/paste those into my LOR lms sequence.
