  1. Can some one tell me the dimensions for the new CCC- II controller box? It looks similar to the old one..but it is hard to tell from the pictures on the website.
  2. Let me clarify. I do not have any CCP-II strings or controllers. Both strings have 4 wires. The "newer" ones were purchased last season prior to the CCB-II coming out.
  3. I have two CCPv2 contollers, both with v1.21 firmware. One will control my older CCP strings (3 years old), but not the CCP strings I purchased last year. The other will do the opposite. It will control the newer pixels but not the older ones. Any ideas on why this would happen? Todd
  4. Garage Door Covers

    Looks like they deleted that page. Just use the website and it works fine: http://www.mydoordecor.com/
  5. Importing Channel Config - Confusion

    You are correct. The import is on a line by line basis. What I have learned from others in the forum is to use tracks. Track 1 should be used as your "master". It stays the same in every sequence. Other tracks can be added and changed however you want. When you add new channels, add them at the end of the first track, then export the configuration and import it into the other sequences. Never delete channels from the first track or the order will be off when you export and import. To get your existing sequences to a point where you can import the configuration you wanted, you will need to open them and order the channels in the same order as the one you have chosen. Don't worry about the names, just make sure that the channels are the same. There may be an easier way, but this is what I did. It takes some time, depending on the number of channels you have, but once you have it done you should not have to do it again. Here is the original thread: Todd
  6. sequences

    If you saved over the old versions of the sequences using the same file names and locations, they should play automatically.
  7. I have three LOR built 1602 30 amp boxes that I am looking to sell. Just tested them and they are all in working order. I am just replacing them with newer models. These are NOT v3 controllers. Unit 4 - $100 plus shipping from 60194 Unit 5 - $125 plus shipping from 60194 Unit 6 - $125 plus shipping from 60194 I can send other pictures and video of them running a chase sequence if needed.
  8. Projector trigger with LOR?

    You could set up the projector as a second monitor on your LOR machine (assuming you are using a computer and not a Director) then you could just make a sequence with the video file as your media and program your props (or not). You could then manually turn on the projector at the beginning and end of each evening. Don't know if this fits your requirements, but it's what I do for Christmas and is pretty easy to set up.
  9. So how and when did you get started?

    My family has been decorating with static lights ever since I can remember (late '70s). I can remember my dad diving off a ladder as it slid down the front of our house, while he was hanging frames of lights around our windows...remember the one with the clear plastic petals over the lights? I was very impressed with his roll out as he hit the ground...not a scratch. I thought he was a stuntman. Anyway, we did static until the bud commercial, like James. Luckily I found LOR right away. I wonder how much the one commercial has cost people?? Oh well, I can't say it hasn't been worth it.
  10. RGB Pixie16 with lights from LOR - Testing

    On my Pixie4, if you press and hold the button on the board it will sequentially light the pixels on all strings simultaneously. First in red, then green, then blue. I would assume it would be the same for the 8 and 16.

    No new information, but a nice tribute when you go to their website: http://www.trans-siberian.com/
  12. Changing Pixel Order

    Perfect. Thanks guys.
  13. I am trying to sequence a small pixel wreath with SE through the Pixie4 controller. I was planning on copying the device to a different track and reordering the pixels to program different effects. However, when I change the order in one track it changes in the other as well. This doesn't happen for other channels..just pixels. Any ideas?
  14. Pixie4 Controller with 2811 Pixels

    Thanks JR. That was the problem. I thought there was something weird when it wasn't righty tighty lefty loosey. Glad to know I am not the only one that had that problem. Live and learn. Thanks everyone.
  15. Pixie4 Controller with 2811 Pixels

    Just saw the post on data direction so I will check that, but I am having issues at the connection between the board and pixels. The pins on the board are measuring at 12v, but when I use the supplied connector I get nothing. Has anyone had issues with the connectors not "connecting"?
