  4. All good suggestions. After spending more time going through old forum posts and troubleshooting some of the same ideas suggested above, It led me to the LOR home page and found the firmware update section and low and behold the 2 controllers I was having issues with had firmware updates available. Updated the firmware on both controllers and all problems went away! This was the first time I have ever had to update any firmware, it it was easy and went very smoothly. Needless to say I am very relieved... on with the show!!! thanks for the suggestions Happy Halloween
  5. So during my show I have RGB lights flickering randomly. When the show is off (not enabled) I have RGB lights that go on and off randomly. Then when I open up my control panel and look to see what control boxes are seen, it finds more control boxes than I have. I have 6 control boxes and it sees 11 and calls the extra boxes unknown device??? I originally thought the random light during the show were due to bad cat 5e cables. This happened to me last year and was an easy fix. Checked cables and they are all good. Random lights flickering on and off while the show is off is a new one for me. Also control panel seeing more control boxes than I have is new to me as well. My only guess is possibly a bad RJ45 filter or a possible firmware issue??? If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Thank you in advance Steve

  8. I bought 4 new cat5 cabels from monoprice a few weeks ago and had issues with my show. Took a close look at the new cabels and all 4 were wired wrong! Decided to make my own and will never buy premade cabels again....I've ordered a lot from monoprice and this was my first bad order...
  9. Kevin- Sorry to hear that you are shut down! From the news footage I saw it looked like a perfect place to have it with a park across the street. Hope you get it worked out! Kenny- never encountered that yet....and I stress yet cause I'm sure I will at some point. Hope it was a one time deal....
  10. S U C C E S S ! ! ! Turns out the 4 new cat5 cabels were all wired wrong! Wired up my own today and problem solved! Thanks again everyone for taking the time to help in trying to trouble shoot my problem when I'm sure you all had better things to do. I'm very greatfull... Kevin-glad your show is back up and running again. I live in the Sacramento area and saw it on the local news a few nights ago. Truth be told I saw a YouTube video of yours in 2011 and that's what hooked me! I'm sure I'm not the only one you have inspired so thank you. Again thanks for taking the time to help me out! Will try and post a video this week
  11. I agree it's hard to see the dark red but I've gone through and made sure they are all off! The issue is they never come on at the same point in the sequence...
  12. Don- as i just started looking at my sequences it donned on me (no pun intended) that the lights come on at different times each time the sequence is played so I don't think background effects are to blame...
  13. First off....thanks for all the help! Mr P- I assume you mean the power cords to the controllers and the cat 5 cabel and not the power cords running from the controllers to the lights. If I am correct then I will be making sure they are seperated. As far as the cords from the controller to the lights they are all zip tied together as they make there way to the controllers. Don- I have run the Verifier and it only comes up with channels off error. I have several chanels that I'm not using so that is normal as far as I know. However I will be checking the background effects....didnt even think of that.... Jeff, Dennis and Jim- Will be checking the CAT5 cabels tonight... Again thanks for all the input and will keep you posted... Steve
  14. So this is my 4th year and I am having a lot of new problems that I am not able to trouble shoot through. I could really use some help from others at this point. First my set up. I have 32 channels on CTB16PC units and 32 channels on CMB16D-QC units. I have the Basic plus with 3.7.0 software. We moved to a new house this year and I had to totally revamp EVERYTHING!!! For my Halloween show I am only using 1 CTB16PC unit and both CMB16D-QC units for a total of 48 channels My main issue: several RGB lights come on when they are not programed to.They come on at random times every time I test the sequence. Never at the same time they did the previous test... My troubleshoots: Checked the channels to make sure they were not accidentally programed ON. And they are not on not even 1%... Checked for any channel assignment mistakes. None that I could find. Ran the Verifier. Had no errors or warnings Switched controllers. had same issues with same RGB lights. At this point I have no idea why these lights keep coming on. Its frustrating when I put so much time and effort into my display and sequencing to only have it spoiled by a few random flickering lights. I did not have this problem in previous years and its killing me!!! ANY help or advice would be VERY appreciated.... Steve

  19. Lots of ideas on Halloween Forum. I have been playing around a little bit with the LED pin spot lights. I have tried the 5mm and 10mm size LED's and I think the 10mm size is the way to go. Im trying to light up individual tomb stones so it sounds like we are trying to do the same type of thing. The link below is just one of many... http://www.halloweenforum.com/tutorials-step-step/91992-led-pin-spots.html
  20. Just woundering how others reseal their solder joints on RGB strips? Are there any do's or dont's? I have had to replace a few small sections and just want to know what others have found to be the easiest way to do this. Thanks
  21. Well great news! Received my new adapter and everything is up and running!!! As far as my controller, I only lost one channel and I can fix it after the holladays. I can also send the adapter in for repairs and I will have a spare. I guess I should of had one to begin with but you don't think about the little things until something happens and you need it.... Thanks again for all the troubleshooting advice
  22. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for taking the time to try and help me troubleshoot through my stupidity... Currently I'm waiting on the help desk to get back to me. Also I ordered a new RS485 that should be here on Tuesday. Hopefully I get this issue resolved. I have all my Halloween stuff up and it's waiting to come alive...
