  1. Too bad you are not local, I have several spares. Obvious thing if you are comfortable with a multi-meter is to test that you have line voltage on the input terminals. If there is voltage I would unplug and it let it sit for a while. If it has thermal limiter it might reset. Of course if it comes it might indicate another failure (like the fan).
  2. Two ways to solve it/work around that I use. I also use a shared folder for my Light-O-Rama install. 1) when editing the sequence I turn off the windows command, fortunately it saves the value so you can check it again at end of the editing session. 2) I installed the MIIP client on my of sequencing computer. I may have needed to put symbolic link to make it work but that may particular to the mismatch in usernames between the two computers.
  3. If I change a preview is there a way to update a bunch of sequences without manually having to open each one to save new playback files?
  4. One of the reasons I started experimenting with MIIP is to allow me to run "request only" shows after the primary season is over. I usually don't get the lights down for a few weeks because of weather and schedule. The plan is just turn on icicles but have the musical sequences available for requests. The other use I have for postseason runs is for testing some new stuff. I usually have more time in the early part of the year versus the last quarter. arnold
  5. Light-O-Rama S5 Sequencer (32-bit), Version 5.0.16 Pro Edition Copyright 2016-2017 Light-O-Rama, Inc. Registered to: Arnold de Leon Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Intel® Xeon® CPU E3-1230 v3 @ 3.30GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti OpenGL version: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 388.13 Notice that in the first image there are two blue regions. I sometimes don't notice that the name selected because I'm focused on the part I'm about to edit and it looks like it is selected.
  6. Clicking into a prop creates a misleading user experience. Two things appear to be selected (two things in Blue). The title and the the Universe (with an DMX prop). Only the title is really selected. While working reassigning channels/universes I click into a prop and attempt to enter a new universe by typing in the new number. I noticed that the window doesn't look it has focus so I click on the universe, "get focus", type and hit save. What I often miss is that I *did* have focus it just happened to be the title. So I end up is the prop gets renamed. It would be helpful if the universe or channel number was not highlighted (blue in my case) and appear to be selected. arnold
  7. Well, that is strange, it just started working. I think the only I changed was the following line that in the cmdmap file: <command key="5db9ae01-b1b3-47c8-a44e-6903690f6604" command="" windowStyle="4" /> and make it like all the others. I wonder if it was causing some kind parsing problem. arnold
  8. I downgraded to 5.0.14 and did a complete restart (rebooted the computer) but I'm still getting nothing in miipclient.txt fail. It really looks the command is not being executed. It's clearly not just a straight software version issue. Running the sequence via the sequencer correctly updates the file. I will try putting the sequence file in the same directory as miipclient.txt file and if that fails I'll edit the the loredit files and have them point to the same entry in the cmdmap.lcm file. arnold
  9. A quick test shows that running in the sequence in the sequencer causes the file to be updated but not running in the show. I'm going downgrading now.
  10. Yeah the file is not being updated when the sequence runs. I can run the test from the MIIP software and I see that it gets updated and the client view shows what I put in with the test. I also can run the command manually and it correctly updates the log and file. I will try downgrading to 5.0.14 this morning now that the shows are not running. I can also try running in Sequencer. arnold
  11. Light-O-Rama S5 Sequencer (32-bit), Version 5.0.16 Pro Edition Copyright 2016-2017 Light-O-Rama, Inc. Registered to: Arnold de Leon Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Intel® Core™ i5 CPU M 560 @ 2.67GHz NVIDIA NVS 3100M OpenGL version: 3.3.0 I've experimenting with the MIIP and after some debugging I think Windows commands with sequences are not running. MIIP relies on a command running to know what song has played. When looking at the logs I don't see any evidence that it ever runs the Windows command when running sequence is run from the show. I still doing some more debugging to confirm.
  12. I come from a system and network background as well. IP addresses were easy for me, DMX networking was originally a puzzle. I think I still remember the big leap from a couple of years when I finally got the mapping of E1.31and Ethernet and IP. I can try to help. Ignoring for the moment how they are controlled. First easy concept is that a single RGB pixel is the equivalent of 3 channels in the old universe. In the S4 world you have to choose how you control your pixels. One channel at a time (the old way) or via the Pixel Editor. One of the hard leaps was getting Pixel Editor setup. You will continue to edit old channels using the sequence editor and edit your pixels in the Pixel Editor. If you haven't made the leap to PE yet I would recommend going straight to S5. In S5 Pixels and classic LOR are controlled via the Sequencer. It is much closer to an object oriented model. You don't control channels so much as you control objects. It just happens that most old props are single channel.
  13. Are you trying to play the sequence via editor as as show. Have you saved the intensity file or playback file (depends on version)? If through PE is control lights checked?
  14. I would try to reversing from plug on the ornament to the socket. The ornament probably has diode that is rectifying the AC power into DC. When you plug into into an LED string the power is rectified already, if you get the polarity wrong it won't work. This assumes that that LED socket is at close enough voltage for it. The other approach is come up with a power supply for it. The voltage at socket for a mini-light string is around 2.5 volts (https://people.howstuffworks.com/culture-traditions/holidays-christmas/christmas-lights1.htm). arnold
  15. Has anyone integrated a web server with the shows so someone could request a song? I see that there a jukebox like function in the show editor and I'm wondering if anyone has plumbed into something like a web server? arnold
