  1. The other alternative to breaking wires is to remove the channel fuse from the controller and measure the current across the fuse terminals. Again the DVM needs to have enough current handling to support this.
  2. Well before actual setup begins, you need to sort out how much power you need, where to get it and how you are going to get it to your controllers.Similarly. where are your data runs exiting the house, and where do they need to go. I put my controllers close to their props, (even more important with pixels) to minimise the length of the multiple output cables, but it does mean longer primary power feeds. Buy a lot of three way AC taps, you'll need them.
  3. First try a complete power off reboot.Not sleep or hibernate. If that doesn't work, uninstall S5 , delete the LOR folder in C:\Program Flies(x86) and reinstall a fresh download. As always for safety make sure your data files are backed up first, just in case.
  4. Interesting sound. Quite like that, Have to check out some more. Sort of Hell's Angels meet Samurai.
  5. If different sequences are giving differing results, there must be something different in their config. If you right click on the channels in the SE and choose "turn physical channel on" for each color channel you can check if it is really doing what it's supposed to on lights or the visualizer. That trick only works in S4 though.
  6. Brian, I just looked at the sample .sup files in my LOR directory, and indeed they do not seem to be associated. This is on 5.2.4, OP's profile says 4.3.24
  7. A couple of possibilities spring to mind. I presume you are looking at the files in Windows explorer. Are you sure you are looking at the right file and not a similar filename with a different extension. The Superstar icon should show up next to the filename. If you do not have "show extensions" turned on in Windows it is sometimes tricky to spot the correct file. If the file opens through Superstar the file must be OK. Either Windows does not know what to do with it or you may have the wrong file.
  8. There are a number of items now buried one level deeper on the right click context menu. It's taking me much longer to set my timings. I don't have THAT much time left.😀
  9. I have been re-visiting S5 for the first time since the beta period last year and must say that the experience is enormously improved. I have successfully upgraded all of my 50 odd sequences and find them playing back on actual lights normally in the sequencer and the show player and by the way, using MIIP. I have also found that the S5 show player seems to handle raw S4 sequence files so even if the upgrade didn’t go well, the original S4 files will play fine, which keeps some options open. Once the RGB breakout editing is restored, I think the sequencer will behave very much as it does in S4, but significantly faster in both loading and responsiveness during sequencing. If you are upgrading from an S4 Visualizer file, it is important that the Vis and the S4 sequence config match exactly. All of my tracks and groups came over intact although a few channel names needed editing. I do have a few comments\suggestions as to the layout of some of the menu items, specifically the right click context menu from the sequencing grid. In S5, the timing commands have been placed in a sub menu, Timing Mark, which means an extra mouse click every time you need a timing command. I use (and maybe I am in the minority) Insert Timing, Multiple Timing, Resize Timing, Copy Timing and Delete Timing very frequently, all of which now require an extra mouse click. It would be helpful if they could move back into the first level menu. One other thing, Resize Timing used to accept, for example, .05 as an entry, now it requires 0.05, which for me adds a lot of keystrokes. Overall my comfort level with S5 is improving rapidly and I am looking forward to the next release. Thanks to all on the development team for your hard work.
  10. Unicast. 4, 8 or 16 port models. Fan header. Refresh rate setting
  11. What is the Mirage driver and what is it for? It may be getting in the way as it seems to be some sort of graphics add on. Never heard of it before.
  12. Hopefully waiting also. Thanks Matt.
  13. As opposed to us I guess....
  14. He was just in the forum activity list, hovering over the new guys avatar. No trickery.
