  1. I know your post is a year old (today), but I was just having the exact same issues--trying to play a new sequence for my eave lights for St. Patrick's Day. Nothing worked. Now that I have created playback files, they show up on the Show Editor and work great. Thanks so much!
  2. Found it! I wasn't showing all items in the prop names. I was just showing one track. Now the Add/Modify Motion Effect Row shows up! Thanks for your help. Learning new software at 65 years old is frustrating, but fulfilling once I learn it. Thanks again!
  3. The last few days I have downloaded S5 and trying to make it work. How do I add a "motion effect row" to a sequence that I imported from an S4 sequence? I also imported the preview from an S4 visualizer. I'm stumped. Thanks.
  4. Still have this problem. Anyone?
  5. I got the skipping songs problem fixed (I had moved some songs to a different folder, so Zara didn't know where to find them), but I am having problems with the Satellite input. It will not "hold" the setting I select. It changes back to "Breakaway Pipeline" every time I change it. Any ideas? I am running Zararadio 1.6.2 with the DTMF tones, and I run it as an administrator. Thanks!
  6. Thanks for your reply. I'll check that out. And by the way, I thought I had put the question in "General Decorating Questions." Thanks for moving it to the correct section; and I apologize!
  7. Well, the season of lights is over! Now I would like to fix a few things that bugged me all season long. One is with Zararadio, which I play during the day. All of a sudden Zara has started skipping over many songs in my playlist. They all worked early in the season, but I had to reinstall Zara 1.6.2 during the season, and now it skips more songs than it plays. Any ideas? Thanks for your help.
  8. Let me take you back even further: I ran my first Christmas light show with an Atari 800--four channels! I had lot of lights. I had to program the "sequence" in Atari Basic language. It was a first of its kind. No music, just flashy blinky! That was in about 1985. I ran it for about 15 years, then static lights, until I discovered Light-O-Rama. There were no controllers to be purchased back then; I built my own boards with opticouplers, triacs, resistors, etc. Fun times. How grateful I am for Light-O-Rama!
  9. Deb--and others, I have a question about your multi-house display: How do you handle the music for such a large display--especially on different streets? How to you broadcast it so everyone can hear it? My EDM transmitter won't go that far! Thanks for your help. Craig
  10. 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.
  11. Thanks for your replies, especially Bob, who is trying to make this work for me! I'll let you know what happens.
  12. 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
  13. 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..........
  14. Thanks, Bob. I will try that and see how I can do!
  15. 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?
