  1. CMB-24D Only Reds coming on

    If you need a quick portable way to test dumb 12V rgb lights, get a 9 V battery and attach leads to the terminals.
  2. Greenwich Lights 2017

    A few of my favorites from the 2017 playlist. The Sound Of Silence By Disturbed https://www.dropbox.com/s/1gngji929aydqij/Disturbed Sound Of Silence.mp4?dl=0 Thunder By Imagine Dragons https://www.dropbox.com/s/zztv0bx1vghjk01/Imagine Dragons Thunder.mp4?dl=0 Silent Nutcracker By TSO https://www.dropbox.com/s/l8epqbfp1ovtobx/TSO Silent Nutcracker.mp4?dl=0 Time And Motion/Winter Palace By TSO https://www.dropbox.com/s/9zwn54chjjg0soj/TSO Time And Motion Winter Palace.mp4?dl=0 Wizards In Winter By TSO https://www.dropbox.com/s/9fc0opm7v9byrew/TSO Wizards In Winter.mp4?dl=0
  3. Preview editor.

    Correct, if using S4. If S5, there is no Visualizer and no ability (yet) to view a running show, just the sequencer output. I consider that a major omission.
  4. Lights still on after show ends for night

    Try a snubber. http://www.planetchristmas.com/index.php?/forums/topic/36988-easiest-terminatorssnubbers-to-make/ People sometimes use Glade plugins, or you might try a short string of incandescent bulbs on the end as a test. The idea is to create a small load which LED's sometimes don't, to make sure the triac shuts off.. I have also seen a couple of sets of LED's fail in this manner, so check another set just in case. Could be a Triac failing also.
  5. Create a new fresh show file in the show editor and when you add the sequences using the + button make sure you are adding the sequences from the right folder. Save the file and try to run it on demand and then try scheduling the new show file.
  6. Internal format - where is it stored?

    If you must use internal media, (and I never have) you may have to open each sequence in the SE to recreate it. You will find the files in the LOR\LORinternal\Cannonical folder
  7. WiFi Issue / E1.31

    Never used one but there are usb ethernet adaptors out there.
  8. WiFi Issue / E1.31

    You might want to consider separating your House network from the E1.31 lighting network. I installed a second network card solely for the lighting which is hardwired to the outside. Less than 20 bucks.
  9. pixel tree show to fast

    As Dennis said, Not just 128kbs but constant bit rate too, not variable bit rate. Most use Audacity, a free audio editor to do this, but if you have your own favorite, that's fine.
  10. Pixel lights or current lights

    Cutting regular or LED light strings is not recommended unless you know what you are doing.
  11. False Feedback?

    Remember, a significant percentage probably don't even tune in their radios, or even spend enough time to associate the music to the lights. I don't do social media, don't advertise or desire any media attention, The show is what it is, take it or leave it. The fact that the lights are perfectly timed makes me smile, that's enough for me.
  12. Unit IDs needed per controller ?

    Remember, the CMB 24 uses dip switches on the board itself for setting a permanent ID.
  13. Expand save length of status log

    Is there not a scroll bar at the side of the window. It's been a long time since I used 2.9.4 but I seem to remember logs that lasted hours.
  14. lost sequences in simple show builder

    I believe that the files need to be in their default locations in the LOR folder for SSB to be able to find them. Sequences in the Sequences folder and Audio in the Audio folder. The slightly more complex Show editor allows them to be anywhere and has more flexibility to boot. If you do use the Show editor you must also use the Schedule editor to set show times etc. All in all I don't know of any good reason to use SSB unless there is a licence level restriction. By the way you should enter your Software Version in your profile, it is often helpful when answering questions.
  15. Trouble with multiple controllers

    I stand corrected.
