  1. Network Conflict Error

    I am using S5. But the first question is why are you concerned about AuxA network? Your network description is a single network. To change what comm port is used for each network in S5, you go to Menu > Tools > Preferences > Network Preferences. To see what network and channel is assigned in S5, open the Preview Editor and select the preview you are wanting to change. Then select Item > Channel Summary. Also suggest updating your forum profile to show a more accurate software version.
  2. Network Conflict Error

    The way your network description is laid out, you are only running a single network. Where is AuxA coming into the picture? And yes, IF you run multiple LOR networks, you would need a second USB to RS-485 adapter (high speed version recommended), but it sounds like you are not running multiple networks.
  3. 2018 Spring Sale

    Mine got delivered to work today - but I'm on vacation until Tuesday so not in my hands yet...

    Very helpful to know what version and license level, but location can be very helpful - things that are an issue in snow & ice country often are not here. Also nice to know when there are people close enough to either visit their show or come over to help with problems. Also for location, give us something useful. For example CA could be California, Canada, Cambodia, and I'm sure a few others.

  6. Need Help configuring PixCon16

    Do you have remote access software (for example, TeamViewer or VNC or others). Someone who is familiar with the Pixcon (not me) could remote in and likely help you.
  7. Need Help configuring PixCon16

    Yes, I fat fingered it. Should have been
  8. Need Help configuring PixCon16

    If you have DHCP enabled, where is the getting assigned. The computer should be looking for a DHCP server, and if you are direct connected from the computer to the Pixcon, there is nothing to operate as a DHCP server (unless the Pixcon will - never played with one). One other thing you can try from a command prompt. Type Ping 102.168.0 50 and let us know if that fails or responds. BTW, what OS are you running?
  9. Assistance with Design

    As someone who runs RGB landscape lighting yedar round, I can assure you having permanent RGB lighting is really great. Tons of options.
  10. The other receiver card people are trying out is a Linsn card. I HIGHLY recommend that you read this thread over on the Falcon forum. It's massively long (334 posts as I type this), but a huge amount of information. http://falconchristmas.com/forum/index.php/topic,6871.0.html I bought my first ColorLight card via Amazon and it took a month or so, and the other two via ebay from a link that was posted in the above FPP thread. It also took weeks. All three came from China.
  11. Yes, you should be fine running two 10W floods on each RGB output set on a CMB24D
  12. Can Applights be used with a Pixie LOR controller

    The only "consumer" pixels that I am aware of that have been hacked to use with a lighting controller are GE Color Effects lights (of which I am using about 400 in my show). According to the Pixie docs, they can't control the GECE lights. That does not mean that any other "consumer" pixel strings have not already been hacked - but I'm not aware of it. The real answer is it depends on what type of protocol the Applights use.
  13. Light-O-Rama S5 Sequencer (32-bit), Version 5.0.18 Pro Edition Copyright 2016-2018 Light-O-Rama, Inc. Registered to: Jim Walls Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Intel® Core™2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz ATI Radeon HD 3400 Series OpenGL version: 3.3.10750 Compatibility Profile Context Module: Sequencer When using Increase or Decrease Intensity, only non-RGB channels are affected. Example, this segment shows my address sign as full green, and the columns at 255/255/102: Then this effect applied: After applying the effect, the RGB levels were unchanged. Note that applying the same effect to non-RGB channels works fine. Also, what happened to scale intensities that was in S4 (which is generally more useful that just changing the level by a number)?
  14. 100% Brightness?? Do you EVER?!

    It depends on how you are sequencing and what hardware you are using. In Sequence Editor, you can select an entire song and then right click and select something like change intensity (can't remember exact wording in S4, and it's different in S5 - which I have on this computer so I can't look). On the hardware side, when dealing with pixels, a lot of pixel controllers have an adjustment.
  15. Thanks for the update Matt. That leaves a question. What about dumb RGB strings? By that I don't mean a string of red, a string of green, and a string of blue in a bundle, but rather dumb RGB "pixels".
  16. S5 Sequencer integration with SuperStar Version 5.0.18 Pro OS version: Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) Description: Groups created in Preview Editor containing props that are a single channel or single RGB channel work fine in SuperStar when using "Insert SuperStar Effects", but when exported into S5 Sequencer (by exiting SuperStar), the motion effects line in Sequencer shows solid for the time segment, but when playing that time segment, the effect does not play. Likely related to this is SOME effects result in this error when adding the scene: I have not yet figured out what is the common thread of which ones do this... Repeatability: Every time Hardware: Dell Optiplex 755 Light-O-Rama S5 Sequencer (32-bit), Version 5.0.18 Pro Edition Copyright 2016-2018 Light-O-Rama, Inc. Registered to: Jim Walls Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Intel® Core™2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz 4GB of RAM ATI Radeon HD 3400 Series OpenGL version: 3.3.10750 Compatibility Profile Context The test sequence that I'm using can be downloaded from: http://newburghlights.org/trouble/ (It's the only thing in that directory). Note that this is a test sequence that I'm using ONLY for configuring props in Preview Editor so that they work right in SuperStar. That work is NOT completed, so there are some props that are not in groups, or they have not been set up with a group arrangement; or do not have motion effects rows. The first 15 seconds has stuff that was created in a combination of Sequencer, SuperStar and Pixel Editor (to use the old names). The next 15 seconds is all stuff created in SuperStar.
  17. Just exit SuperStar.
  18. 2018 Spring Sale

    I just got my shipping notice an hour or so too.
  19. Come on Fridayyyy

    That's true. Triskaidekaphobia is just fear of the number 13...
  20. Come on Fridayyyy

    For all of you with Triskaidekaphobia...
  21. Pixel Editor vs S5

    For all practical purposes, the answer is no. Obviously you can with separate computers. I still have S4 on my show computer (powered off since January), but I have S5 on my server (what is running my landscaping show), and all three PCs that get used for sequencing and testing. If you run virtual machines, you could also have separate installations on the virtual instances. You MIGHT be able to play games in the registry to make multiple version live on the same computer, but that is not supported.
  22. Help with RGB star

    I could strip off the outermost star from my S4 visualization and send you a S4 Visualizer prop file easily enough.
  23. Help with RGB star

    In reality, you can put the pixels in any order that you want - as long as your channel layout and/or visualization match reality. In the case of my star, I have rings 1 & 6 (70 + 20) on one output (universe 27), rings 2 & 5 (60 + 30) on the second (universe 28), and rings 3 & 4 (50 + 40) on the third (universe 29). In that case, the three outputs are the same total number of pixels per output, but it does not matter. Note that if those are 5V pixels, assume that you will need power injection on each string. Less likely with 12V pixels unless you get much over 100 pixels.
  24. Help with RGB star

    Not a problem with any pixel controller that I know of.
  25. Pixel Editor vs S5

    New software relesases (production or beta) are always announced in the Important Announcements section of the forum (the topmost section). The most recent announcement is for 5.0.18 and is here: If you back up everything and keep them off the computer that you install S5 on, they obviously will be unaffected in case you decide to go back to S4. Note that because I have been quite active with the S5 beta, I have gone back and forth AT LEAST a dozen times on various computers. No problem with sequences.
