    The Pixie 8 is a LOR controller and has to be on a LOR network. If you are asking if it has to be plugged into another LOR controller to work, then no, it is an LOR controller.

    Yes that was my question....

  2. I have a pixie 8 for a small matrix- only running 6 ports LOR protocol....do I have to connect it to a regular LOR controller?  I cant seem to get my S5 sequence to play on it- thanks!

    Are you running just LOR protocol? 

    Yes LOR protocol not DMX.  I run 24 CCR's over 4 networks (6 CCR's per network).  They is no way my system along with everything else I run could handle the data.  It barely does it over 4 networks.  I had to upgrade to S5 only because I was maxed out data load wise in S4.  Remember, I run almost 40 houses plus all my other stuff....its insane- ask Jim!


  4. If you are going ribbons (CCR;s I assume) - I would highly suggest you NOT run 16 ribbons on the same network- they will look like crap.  Ive had a 24 ribbon tree that I run over 4 networks.  Depending on the graphics,  running intensity files help too.  If you are looking for some cheap CCR's, I have a lot (24-27) with the controllers Im looking to get rid of and also have an aluminum tubing frame.  Im in Central Cal.  Pm me if your interested- Good Luck!

  5. So Im brand new to S5 and have converted all this years show files in S5.  The new files are LOREDIT files but to load into show builder they need to be LMS files.  SO I noticed the playback feature- is that the file I create and then load into show builder? thanks!

  6. SS error comes up stating I need to decrease the number of effects?  Failed to allocate memory   Cannit build channel commands.  Reduce the number of effects in the sequence.  ChannelElementsSize: 8256000.   Are you kidding me?   Then SS just sits and spins.   I just upgraded to S5 hoping to resolve issues.  Anyone got any suggestions?   This sequence is DMX 24x50 tree.  thanks

  7. Im changing over to S5 and in S4 I have multiple networks.  Aux A-G.  This year Im changing out my 24 string CCR tree to DMX pixels so Aux A-D is no longer in use.  My question is, can I just leave those blank (A-D) and run E-G?  or do I have to start at A?  Thanks!

    For the last 5 years, I have been programming the lights for my house and the neighbor next door.  When I did my display this past Christmas using S5, it didn't present any issues because I was able to take a nice picture of both homes together that I could configure in the Preview.  Now I have an issue because another house 7 doors down from me wants his house to be included.  I have taken a picture of his house and I am getting them to work with me on defining how they would like to see the layout on their house and property.  I purchased all the necessary wifi controllers at the spring sale and I told him that he has to purchase his own 16 channel controller.  How can I get multiple images loaded into the Preview so that I can setup his channels?  If I can't, what other method do you have to allow me to include their house configuration into my sequences.  Before Preview, the grid would allow you to setup as many controllers as you wanted.  Anyone doing multiple houses on a street or a layout in a park may run into the same issue.  It would be handy to link several individual Previews into a sequence.  That way you could have more detail per house.

    Hi Steve- I do multiple houses ( 38 this year) and I have never used pictures for viewing.  I just use several dots for example: Upper eves - four colors- one for each, lower eves - four colors, one for each, mini trees- four colors ( we use 6 mini trees per house, so 6 sets....and so on...you really dont need to have that much detail until you go pixels and matrices...hope this helps- thanks!

  9. So I created a pixel tree sequence in xlights and then converted to LOR- Im running a pixicon 16 - the sequence randomly stalls when playing in sequence editor- any ideas as to why????  My SE files are HUGE as we do 40 houses of regular LED lights..Im running DMX on this tree- thanks!
