  1. FYI, I was having similar problem, and this post had the answer ( http://forums.lightorama.com/index.php?/topic/20127-huge-annoyance/ ) .It is possible that you may not have had a 485 adapter plugged in. This drove me nuts
  2. This post finally resolve the last of my problems trying to get DMX to work with LOR. I am posting because this was the fix to my problem, but with a twist. I have 4 485 adapters configured on COM 3, 4, 5, and 6. I plugged one it, but it still kept switching "Control Lights" off. I had to unconfigure 3 of them, and just leave one in place, since I only had one plugged in. That finally fixed it. I have one computer running the show, and another I work from. The one I was working / testing from did not have the 485's plugged in, and I only had two spare 485's. You are right, this was a huge annoyance.
  3. I think LOR is the best at what they do. I prefer their software over the other options that are available. You will also be hard pressed to find better support. LOR in my opinion is the right place for just about anyone new to get started, because it just doesn't get easier than this. They are the only vendor I have seen that provides this type of open forum for everyone to use. What you will ultimately use really comes down to what you are trying to do, and no matter what I do, they will be a core part of my display.
  4. And is anyone surprised. They will have a sale, . . .eventually.
  5. They need to be using the same voltage you are plugging the controller into. So basically, if you can plug the LED's directly into the wall, you can plug them into the controller.

  10. To me this looks awesome, how many of you are going to get these? I spend as much as I can get away with on my display, but I have to be careful in that I cannot afford to waste money on something I cannot use. I am just interested in opinions, and feedback. I really want to expand into DMX this year, and this is really looking like the right way to go. Thanks in advance for any help
  11. I get my bonus in two days, and it is going to get spent. . . If LOR is having their sale I may just go crazy :cool:
