  1. What does each show consist of? Is your pre- show one 45 minute sequence? If it is, and you have it scheduled from 5 to 6, the sequence repeats at 5:45. Even though you have your full show scheduled to start at 6, LOR will not interrupt a sequence that is running. It will wait until that sequence is over before it starts the next show.
  2. Thanks for the replies. I have a Pixie4 that I use the waterproof dongles on. When I had time to inspect things today, I noticed that one of the rubber washers was not seated right. When I opened the connection, there was water inside. The female connector inside was dirty and looked like it a had some corrosion on it. I removed the dongle for now and plugged the network connection directly into the board. (The connection on the cable looked fine). Been running the show for 4+ hours now with no issues so far. Hopefully that was the issue. Note to self...make sure the waterproof connections are waterproof when you connect them. 🤪 A little more time setting up will save you 3 hours of troubleshooting later. Live and learn.😀
  3. I have three networks for my display Reg, Aux A, and Aux B. Things have been running fine for a week. Then last night I come home to find that none of my lights on my Reg network are on. I start troubleshooting and find that the display on on the first controller on that net work, an LOR1602W, reads no connection. I run a new network cable. No change. I replace the controller, with the new cable and things are back to normal. I wake up this morning and he light are out again. I little while later, they’re on again...then off...then on. The timing seems intermittent. Curious, I check my security cameras and come to find that starting at 5:45 last night(when my show starts), the intermittent on/off was happening all the time. Our “fix” lasted about 2.5 hour last night before it started again. The “blinking” happened more regularly at first then the lights were off from 10:00 til 1:00 am (When I turn all lights off for the night.) Then this morning they were off for a while before the on/off started again, then went back to off. Would it be possible that another network cable between controllers is causing this type of issue?
  4. Sorry for the delayed response. I only have the extensions available..unless Dcroc still wants them.
  5. I have never tried it, but would think you would still have issues. Is there no way to run a cable? I run through a 50 ft hdmi with no issues. It would be the best quality you can get.
  6. Tex, There are two issues that I see.. 1. The device you show show is composite video so you would either need have a computer that outputs that or get a converter. 2. I tried this technology a while ago, not for LOR just to transmit video from one room to the next. I did not have very good luck with it. There was a lot of interference, especially when the microwave was running.
  7. Unmodified CCP strings are sold. If anyone is interested in the other items, let me know. Buyer to pay shipping from 60194. 24 CCP/B controllers (1-3 years old) $25.00 ea 10 Female HolidayCoro pigtails (4-wire) $1.00 ea 7 Male HolidayCoro pigtails (4-wire) $1.00 ea 7 HolidayCoro extension cable - 20 ft (4-wire) $4.00 ea 3 HolidayCoro extension cable - 10 ft (4-wire) $2.00 ea 26 HolidayCoro extension cable - 5 ft (4-wire) $1.00 ea Just a reminder that the controllers and CCPs are original 5V, not the new 12V CCP-II.
  8. Since nobody is interested in the whole package, I am willing to sell things individually. Prices for non-altered equipment are below. If you are interested in other equipment, make an offer. Buyer to pay shipping from 60194. 24 CCP/B controllers (1-3 years old) $35.00 ea 5 new CCP 50 count light strings unmodified (purchased in 2017) $15.00 ea 10 Female HolidayCoro pigtails (4-wire) $1.00 ea 7 Male HolidayCoro pigtails (4-wire) $1.00 ea 7 HolidayCoro extension cable - 20 ft (4-wire) $4.00 ea 3 HolidayCoro extension cable - 10 ft (4-wire) $2.00 ea 26 HolidayCoro extension cable - 5 ft (4-wire) $1.00 ea Just a reminder that the controllers and CCPs are original 5V, not the new 12V CCP-II.
  9. PRICE DROP!!! and PICTURES ADDED!!! I upgraded my pixel setup this year and have the following for sale. These are all original 5V LOR controllers and lights. All used CCP and CCB strings have had the connectors cut and replaced with HolidayCoro connectors to allow me to use HolidayCoro extension cables. I then soldered the LOR connectors to HolidayCoro pigtails to create an adapter cable so I could keep all controllers unmodified. I tested all light strings again today and all are in working order. Here is a list of what I am selling: 24 CCP/B controllers (1-3 years old) 24 used CCP 50 count light strings with HolidayCoro connectors(1-3 years old) 5 new CCP 50 count light strings unmodified (purchased in 2017) 6 used CCB 50 count light strings with HolidayCoro connectors (1-3 years old) Misc. CCB and CCP pixels used for repair 40 LOR/HC “adapter” cables 10 Female HolidayCoro pigtails 7 Male HolidayCoro pigtails 7 HolidayCoro extension cable - 20 ft 3 HolidayCoro extension cable - 10 ft 26 HolidayCoro extension cable - 5 ft I would still like to sell as a bundle. Asking $600 plus shipping from 60194, but will entertain reasonable offers.
  10. Sorry..forgot to update the thread with what appears to fix the problem. All I did was expand track 1(which has all of my channels, but I don’t use to sequence) and played the sequence. Once I do that, I can close the track and it works fine. I have no idea why this fixes the problem, but it does.
  11. Thanks JR. That’s what I thought too. So I made sure it was done with all updates before running LOR and recording the video. Any other suggestions? There is nothing installed except for Windows and LOR.
  12. You’re right. Reinstalling Windows did nothing. I would understand it being a codec if there was hitching in a video file, but this is in the sequencer window. Could it really still be a codec?
