    Expected Whitespace

    Wahooooooo! Deleting the LOR\Sequences\Cmdmap.lcm file and renaming the backup file worked! I can now get into the Windows Shell Command. Bob, I'll use your new utility in MIIP. Thanks, everyone! I don't know what I'd do without this forum.

    Expected Whitespace

    Thanks for your replies, especially Bob, who is trying to make this work for me! I'll let you know what happens.
  3. I experienced something new tonight with LOR 4: Whenever I try to add a command to the Windows Shell Command, I get the message "Expected Whitespace." I get this when opening the Windows Command, and if I try to save a command.It was working fine, and I don't know what happened. I hate to be too aggressive since my shows are now running.Can anyone help me?Thanks,Craig

    Power Injection to RGBs

    I thought I would follow up on this topic. I got all my new rgb lights wired with power injection every fifty lights. They start about 25 feet from the controller. I have them going down both sides of my center walkway and across the front walkway. One side worked perfectly; the other side blew a fuse every time I restored the power. I disconnected the power injection and they worked great (I must have a connection crossed somewhere, although I thought I was very careful). Anyway, both sides work great now---one with power injection, and one without. My wife and I can see no difference from side to side--no fading or color change on either side. I have 300 lights on each side (6 strands of 50, end to end). I'm glad it is working well, but I was anticipating that I would need that power injection..........
  5. Thanks, Bob. I will try that and see how I can do!
  6. Hi, I just started using rgb lights this year. Due to time constraints, I have not installed S5, and won't until after this year's display. I would like to have my rgb lights "chase" with a background effect (all on at a 20% intensity, etc.). I have done this many times with regular lights, but can't figure out how to do a background with rgb lights--unless I want the background to all be white. I would like different colors. I have tried everything I can think of. Hope this makes sense. Can anyone help me?

    Power Injection to RGBs

    Thanks so much for your help. I will try it as soon as my lights arrive (supposed to be this week). The RGB lights are new to me, but I'm excited to get them going.

    Power Injection to RGBs

    I've been running a Light-o-Rama show for many years now, but just got into RGB lights for this season. I bought lights from Light-o-Rama--bullet pixels, 50 per string. I plan to connect three of these strings end to end. Will I need to inject power for each string? If so, how exactly do I do that? I don't see a straightforward way on the light strings themselves. I am running a PixCon16 controller, and the first light will be approximately 20 feet from the controller. Thanks for your help.
  9. I haven't ever had anyone offer to help! But my older grandchildren love to help, so that's a plus. The only one who ever complained was my next door neighbor many years ago---my wife's aunt! Oh well, I just told her to go in her house, close the door, close the curtains, and come out again on January 2nd when it was all over. She never complained again. She passed away a few years go, but we got along great! Ha ha.

    Need Help configuring PixCon16

    Hey, I understand what you're saying, and I agree. I'm still working on it. Strangest problems I've ever had with a controller. Nothing seemed to go right at first. It took me weeks to work through it. I have to say that the Help Desk never gave up on me. We tried so many things.................with the controller and my computer. Thanks for all of your input.

    Aux A Network

    Yes, I did. But I tried it with a sequence, with the channels assigned like I want them, and it worked great! I don't know why the HU Pixel Console won't control them correctly; but I really don't care, since they work perfectly with two sequences. Thanks for your help.

    Aux A Network

    I just added a second network to my LOR (on AuxA). I want my regular controllers to be on the Reg network, and my PixCon16s to be on the AuxA network. I have configured them with the correct Com ports for each adapter. But the PixCon16 will not operate with the HU Pixel Console when it is on the AuxA network. If I reverse them, and put the PixCon16 on the Reg network, it works fine from the HU Pixel Control. In both scenarios, the regular controllers work fine--on either network. What am I missing? I could leave them reversed, but to keep things straight in my feeble mind, and to not have to go into every sequence and change the address of every channel, I would like the regular controllers on the Reg network as they always have been. Hope that all makes sense. Thanks.

    Need Help configuring PixCon16

    I appreciate everyone's help on this issue. I had a ticket open with the HelpDesk and they asked me to only deal with them for the time being, so I didn't get things all mess up. I appreciate that. That's why I haven't replied here for so long. We finally got the PixCon16 working, but it took many time back and forth, trying every suggestion. I found that every time I removed power from the PixCon16 to change pixels or switch the Cat5 cable from the silver port to the other ports, it would not work! I would then have to reconfigure the board. If I did not remove power when I moved the Cat5 cable, everything worked great. So, I will just leave power to the board and hopefully it will still work. I need to say that DevMike at the helpdesk was awesome and didn't give up on me! I really appreciate that. Thanks!

    Need Help configuring PixCon16

    Nope, no luck with a different USB485 adapter. I'm probably just missing something in the configuration, but I don't know what it would be. I've been through every step a bajillion times.

    Need Help configuring PixCon16

    No luck with that, either, BluMan. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll keep that in mind for when I finally get a connection going. I'm going to try another USB485, even though the one I'm using works fine for other controllers. I'll post my progress.
