    running wires to the outside

    Would something like this help? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01D0N7AI8/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    We probably would never see a native Macintosh software for the Showtime suite. I think they have mentioned it was because the hardware they sell relies on some drivers that only the Windows OS can provide. I guess in order to get a native MacOS application, they would have to start at the hardware level.

    Renaming RGB channels?

    They are all smart pixels (runs off Pixie XD controllers- I have the 4 and 8D.)
  5. I remember in one of the beta releases of S5 I was able to rename the channels. Now I can't in 5.1.0 . Is there something I'm missing? I've tried double clicking on the channel itself (which brings up the prop settings the channel's associated to), or right clicking on the channel, but don't see any "rename channel" in the menu.
  6. Should there be a separate forum for the Pixie XD / PixCon controllers? Or should the Cosmic Color Device forum be renamed to include the Pixie's as well?

    Pixie firmware v1.03

    If you open a ticket and ask for it, they'll send you the firmware file. I did the same for my Pixie 4D that I purchased last year. You'll have to use S5 to take advantage of the standalone feature. It doesn't work properly in S4.

    Amp rating for Pixie Boards

    It's this strip: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CNL6MNM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1 It's a 5 meter strip, with 60 leds per meter which comes to 300 leds. IC every 3 leds, so it's a 100 pixel strip. Well, off to amazon and find some inline fuse kits.
  9. On the Pixie 8D (2nd generation), the amp rating for the board is 32 amps, based on the 4 amp fuses for each port that comes standard. I have a 12v strip that requires 90W, which comes to 7.5 amps. Another string I'm looking at requires 5 amps. Can I put a higher rated fuse in each port? What is the maximum fuse amperage per port I can put in? Or, would you recommend that I bypass the power feed for that particular string with an inline fuse set up?

    2018 Spring Sale

    The fire happened at the other side of the complex where LOR is. The only impact they had was that their phone lines went down. I assume they have gotten them back up already.

    Permanent Christmas Lights

    In the video, I saw two different colors on the string. That could mean that it's a smart pixel string, and there isn't much action due to the limitations of the controller.

    Permanent Christmas Lights

    The strings appear to be similar to this: http://store.lightorama.com/12vblsqpi50c1.html On the Trimlight site, they appear to be 4 wire, just a matter of finding out which IC the string is on, and then configure a Pixie 4 to use those lights.

    Pixie 1?

    I checked it out, and I don't see any standalone capabilities.
  14. There are Cat6 flat cables available. They of course, are booted, but are more flexible than the standard cabling.

    Pixie 1?

    I wonder if the folks at LIght-O-Rama have considered developing a "Pixie 1"? A single port pixel controller, with stand-alone capabilities.
