  1. I have a controller with two 50 strand cosmic color bulbs. I have been able to narrow it down to one strand of 50 cosmic color bulbs not working properly. The first 9 bulbs in that strand work, but the rest do not. Is there anything I can do to fix this strand or should I just order a new strand?

    Ports reversed

    I been testing my system and for some reason the ports reversed. Last year port 4 went to and ran my 7 LOR Controller boxes and port 5 was my secondary network going to my pixel tree. Does the USB converter 485B remember ports? I had everything labeled, but could not get it to work until I swapped the Ethernet cables. Plugging 4 into 5 and 5 into 4. I even went into the hardware utility and tried to re-initialize each port separately, but kept getting an error. I may have caused it to switch ports during this process too. Does it matter if the ports reversed which may have reversed in my computer? I went into my computers device manager, then plugged in one USB485 (labeled port 4 last year) and it came up as port 5 which was connected to the pixel tree last year, then I went and plugged in the other USB485 (labeled port 5 last year) and it showed up as port 4 and was connected last year to the controllers. Then I simply switched the ethernet cords and everything worked. The Any other words of wisdom? Does the port numbers matter other than going to the proper devices. Thanks Jim
  3. I have a CCB controller that has 50 bulbs (25 bulbs on each side - s1 s2). Last year half of the bulbs (25) went dead or started to not work properly. This happened half way through the season, I did not have time to figure out what happened so this year I am trying to determine if it is a hardware issue with the controller or a programming glitch. I recently discovered in the SE that unit 1 and unit 2 do not have the same identical lines. CCB "OA" s1 has 7 lines and CCB "OA" s2 has 10 lines in the SE. It looks like channels 315-317 are used twice in s2 and called both CCB and CCD. I do not see CCD is s1. Is this my issue? To help better illustrate what is in my SE, I have attached a word doc with pictures of my actual SE. Can anyone tell me if my SE is correct? My next step would be to further trouble shoot the controller, any advice on steps to trouble shoot controller would be appreciated too, assuming it is not a programing glitch. Thank You LOR CCB codes.docx

  5. I am using SS in visualizer mode so that I can have it auto sequence my 5 channel STAR. However the start is barely turning on during the sequence. The STAR is using #17 in timing map. channels 1-16 are my tree. Any tips on how to get the START more alive.
  6. GOT IT It works by deselecting the macro, even through I did not see any macro channels it worked, when I deselected and recut and repasted. As for the visualization program I am OK there too, I think. I just got confused I have some SS that I purchased that had the STAR in it all ready. Then I have other SE that I need to use SS to make the tree and include the STAR and know that I have to use visualizer to do the instant sequence with the Star. Thanks you
  7. I do not see macro channels in my SE, but it was checked in the export window. However I know I have to be in visualizer to get the STAR, to program too. So now I am going back to figure out how to do that.
  8. Hi I just set up the tree to make sure everything is working, however I have one glitch. There is a set of led (about 6) going diagonally down that are not responding to the sequence. I went back to hardware utility to make sure all strips are working with all colors and they are. SO I must have done something wrong when I cut and pasted from SE to SE. I exported the SS into SE, then I opened up both the SS convert to SE and the regular SE for that sequence. I added my new device (see picture below), . With both windows open I cut SS from inside SE into my full sequence for the song. When I play just the SS that was exported into SE, it works fine, but when I play from SE with the pasted SS in the SE, I get a diagonal of lights out (about 6 led) on every strip (16 strips). Here is how I added the device in my SE. What am I doing wrong?

    instant sequence for STAR

    Here are my two screens, any tips when using this program to do instant sequences or is there a video I can watch with tips. Thanks for all your help

    instant sequence for STAR

    I got it to work now, except I only have a 5 channel star and it is set to 6 channels, how do I reduce a channel?

    instant sequence for STAR

    HI Ok I got it to make the STAR blink, but I have a five channel star. Is there a way for it to program each channel? SO that the star can go big to small or small to big?
