    Pixie16 with CCR-II

    Joe.. I know this is an older thread, but saw you were waiting to 2018 to do your ribbons. Unfortunately, I did not find this thread until after I ran into the same problem as you. However, in my testing I purchased a ribbon from Holiday Coro. Their ribbon’s color order is RGB, which matches LOR’s pixels. That means that you would be able to run the ribbons and pixels from the same Pixie controller. You would just need to switch out the pigtail on the controller.

    CCB-II 50 per string: JP5 removal

    So I just opened my new Pixie16 and saw this. According to the manual, the jumper force a configuration for the RGB IC...not sure what this means. Anyway, the posted picture make me believe that I cannot run CCR-II strips and pixel/bulbs off of the same controller...it this true?
  3. Is it possible to use pixels from LOR and HolidayCoro on the same Pixie4 at the same time? I am not sure if the color order for both vendors are the same. If they are not, I know that you can specify the color order on the Pixie4, but I am not sure if you can specify it for each port.

    Smaller Pixel Controlers

    According to the pixie documentation (p21), the Pixie2 is only available in the LOR weatherproof box. Although not explicitly stated, it looks like the CCBII Boxes http://store.lightorama.com/cococoiicc.html I used 12 original CCB controllers this year. Although they worked fine, I am going with several new Pixie16 this year. I would rather have the controller close to the house, and with a 40ft+ range to the first pixel on the newest version , they will work just fine in my display.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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

    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

    If you saved over the old versions of the sequences using the same file names and locations, they should play automatically.
  11. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
