  1. it started before 5.3.0 - I had major issues last year! I have never upgraded to 5.3 since I know how to manipulate 5.2.4 to work perfectly!
  2. I thought 5.3 and higher didnt use .play files?
  3. roll back to 5.2.24 and during the day run the show thru once. after that dont shut ur computer down and run the show. this is how i got around the lag issue and i tefuse to upgrade. 5.2.24 works fine for me. good luck
  4. I personally had great difficulty with S4 copying my superstar sequences into my main sequence. Even tried a single universe at a time and then got an error about memory. Was advised by LOR staff after many phone calls I had to upgrade to S5 to get rid if the error and now its back. I dont understand why developers dont take into account that there are people always pushing the data limits. I have 2 pixel trees I run DMX and 39 houses I run LOR that have 32 channels each. Seems ludicrous that I should be getting errors.
  5. If it plays perfectly in an earlier version why change?
  6. maybe try rebuilding your files in show builder
  7. FYI- I never update during a show season! This is why!
  8. I have an issue with lag and got a program to constantly clear out my RAM. It helps. I also shut down my computer daily. I have 2 large pixel trees Im running E1.31 and plus 40 houses Im running LOR. So my files are LARGE. Running fine thru the sequencer doesn't mean crap. IF your issue is syncing, that would be your audio file and you need to make sure its a constant bitrate and not variable. You can chase that all day long and it will never be right. I use GoldWave to simply convert the files to constant rate mp3 files. Hope this helps and good luck!
  9. Yes I have but I didnt use the clipboard as my show it huge so i did copy and paste from imported file to show file
  10. Anyone have the Holiday Coro singing faces for pixels model and wiring guide? Please forward to Debtoews@comcast.net- thanks in advance
  11. Aww...we started with 1 home and had only that for many years...its a process...you dont just go from nothing to 40 over night! All the learning and work is well worth it once the show is going and people are in awe.... :-)
  12. Yes but you will probably need to do so over multiple networks. Plan Plan Plan your display!
  13. we used it on our 23 foot tree just fine....4 colors of 70's, 2 strings each color...total of 128 strings....handled the weight just fine
  14. I have a Mega Tree setup purchased from ChristmasLightShow.com. Includes a metal 16 string head, pulley system and guy wires. $50 plus shipping from 93619. message me for pics and details- thanks
  15. that is why we started a nonprofit. We accept cash donations which part we re-donate to a food pantry and other nonprofits and its pays for equipment, insurance, storage etc. We only require the homeowners (not the renters) to purchase their eve lights...around $200-250ish..the nonprofit supplies the controllers and 6 4-color mini trees, do the set up etc. This is year number 5 and we will be at 40 homes.
  16. many asked us..others we asked them....a few grinches but its their choice! It was amazing easy believe it or not. But it is a tremendous amount of work but a small group of us are committed to putting on the show every year.
  17. I already have my main show for 40 houses plus a specialty night sequenced! Working on Halloween now :-)
  18. September this year as we will be at 40 houses!
  19. Well its about time you figured out how to do this Mega! lol
