  • How I learned about Light-O-Rama -
    Came to me in a dream, or maybe it was a vision, after watching Christmas Vacation so many times that my dog was quoting the movie in her sleep where she too had a vision of a Christmas display so magnificent that it would simultaneously bring joy to the world while summoning neighbors to my doorstep with torches and pitchforks suggesting that I seek a doctor's prescription for treatment of what they perceived to be an OCD disorder. Dismissing the locals with reassurances of neighborly harmony, good will and peace I'm unable to resist the urge to call all the area TV stations, newspapers, and radio stations and proclaim from the most visited websites to invite the world to my doorstep to visit in the flesh a marvel of lights like no other. To my doorstep also arrives the police department, HOA board and occasionally nerds who are impressed to jealousy for what other force would compel mortal eyes to extinguish the lights that so mystify the soul that one cannot look away.

  2. So I'm doing my mom's house this year and need a standalone solution. So I bought the Light-O-Rama Gen3 mini director (UMP3g3). This one does not have an internal clock. How to upgrade firmware on LOR Gen3 Mini Director (uMP3g3)
  3. This was happening on all sequence files, on a local drive. Files were loading, albeit, very, very slowly. A short sequence (with basically no sequencing) took a few minutes. A normal sequence without pixels or RGB, well I gave up after waiting 2 hours. I rebooted Windows a couple of times, reinstalled the LOR software, upgraded to the latest LOR software and no luck. LOR software was using very little CPU and not much memory. So I went and reset Windows 10. Reinstalled everything and now it seems to be okay. Honestly, I think my problem was/is that my computer upgraded to Win10 and it didn't come with it already installed. I hate my Lenovo W540, oh so very much, for oh so many reasons. New Dell laptop is on the way.
  4. So after a month or two I opened up the Sequence Editor on my very beefy Lenovo Win10 laptop. The sequence editor loads up fine, but when I go to load a file it just sits there (Not Responding). I tried opening a LMS file with about 40 channels and after an hour gave up on it. I downloaded the newest version of the LOR software installed it, rebooted my computer, but still get the same results. Any ideas before I set my computer back to defaults?

  6. Yes, the new San Devices firmware is out as Beta. It does do the split universe thing just fine.
  7. If you're going for exact placement of pixels using the LOR visualizer I would draw some long lines to make sure you get all your pixels then edit the fixture to put the pixels right where you want them. I did something similar for a more complex shape below:
  8. I bought a bunch of these from Holiday Coro. Basically it is heat shrink with solder built in saving a step when soldering on pigtails, connecting strings, etc. They appear to work pretty good. I still plan to put another layer of Waytek heat shrink on the outside (just like Alan taught me to do). Link: HC Solder Shrink Sleeves, Link: Waytek heat shrink tubing
  9. I believe the 50W floods are IP67. Here is how to interpret what that means. IP67 means it is dust tight and can handle being submerged for a little over a minute. I'll let someone else test that out on their floods though
  10. My mad grab haul arrived today.
  11. Sorry, I didn't know that [Foul Language Used] off was a swear. I already put a dollar in the jar.
  12. You take the blue pill, the story ends. You wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Light-O-Rama-land, and if all goes well you will [Foul Language Used] off your HOA."
  13. If you can run from the HW utility, but not from the sequence editor: Make sure the LOR control pannel is running (light bulb in the task tray) Make sure that you are NOT running the HW Utility at the same time.
  14. Picked up a pair of the 50w RGB floods to put under my trees. I did get the are you a robot question. I noticed that things sold out a lot slower this year. In fact they still have pxcon16's. I'm tempted to get one to play with.
  15. Ah, that could be it. I don't have .lms associated with the sequence editor. I'll fix that and see what happens.
