  • How I learned about Light-O-Rama -
    You Tube. Saw some displays and I was hooked. My first year show didn't get started until 8 days before christmas with 3 songs that I sequenced. They were not very good. With the help of this forum and members I am progressing forward every year.

    To my fellow Floridians

    Looks like the bad girl has passed. We are now getting the winds from the back end. So far 5.5 inches of rain and gust of 52 miles per hour. My security cameras show a lot of junk on the ground but no big chunks of anything. That's it from Bradenton Florida. On a good note I got a new song programed

    Matrix size?

    I have a 4x8 pixel panel with 2 inch spacing and while text looks great I could not get the graphics to look good. This year I have p-10 panels and everything looks great. The cost is more and it's a different software to setup. I'm not sure if LOR can handle the high channel count without lag. I have asked this forum but haven't had a reply yet. if it can't, I will have to use xlights to run my show.

    How many dmx channels can LOR safly run?

    After paying for the upgrade for the pixel editor I was disappointed to say the lease. You have always helped me on these boards to which I am grateful. Thank you. Perhaps one day you will go into the p-10 panels and I can return the favor and help you. John

    How many dmx channels can LOR safly run?

    I am going to run a 49 p-10 panels plus all of the other pixels that I now run. 3 different people have said not to do it in LOR because it would bog down. Yes it's e1.31. I do the pixels in xlights and then import them to LOR because 1 I don't like the all or nothing with the Pixel editor and 2 I have run LOR for 6 years and keep adding on to it. I guess I have to switch everything over to Xlights UGH ! Thanks for the reply John
  8. I want to run approximately 90,000 channels of dmx. Can LOR handle these many channels without lag?

    Oldest Sequencer Here?

    I'm 74 and will be 75 in August. My wife is 73 and we both take about 2 weeks to put up our display. Now you know why I'm oldandslow

    Splicing LED M5 mini lights

    Yes you can as I did this on 5 different strings of sealed lights. You must keep the same number of bulbs in the string and more importantly keep the same number of bulbs between the resisters. George is right about the colors having different voltages but I found no difference in the brightness that the eye can detect. You will find that the blue bulbs are the worst for failure rate. I solder and shrink the splices as well as liquid tape them. One last thing, you must keep the polarity correct or the lights will not light where you splice. John
  12. I have two channels that come on and off together. They Are 3 and 4. I have a 1602. The inside is very clean. What can I do to get them to work separately. They started off fine.

    E6804 green power flicker

    Jim, this was my first E6804 I bought from SanDevices fully assembled Two years ago and you gave me the tip to leave a space for more universes to insert which I did. This is the reason I was able to switch so easily. I might try to fixit after the season. Thanks again for the input. John

    E6804 green power flicker

    Thanks K6ccc The port is bad. I checked the fuse and even swapped the fuse with a port that I'm not using. I reconfigured for the second port and all is well. I am only running 80 pixels on the port so I'm not sure what went wrong. I would like to personally thank you for your help the last two years when I changed to pixels. You got me through some challenging times and I'm at this level only because of your input. I do read a lot on these forums but at my age it takes a little longer to figure out what to do. Thank you for all you do on these forums and for helping me. John (oldandslow)

    E6804 green power flicker

    I think that the port is bad because I just put in 5 new pixels and they didn't light so I put them into the second port and reconfigured the board and the new pixels light. I am going to reconfigure for the normal lights that I run and let you know.
