    pixel extenders 3 pin

    I'm using these extensions from my lights to the pixel controller. The end of the extension is that circular 3-pin cap piece. What needs to go in the controller are those green pixel connectors shown in the LoR store here: http://store.lightorama.com/8paofpicofor.html How do you know which wire goes to which I think is what he (and I) are asking.
  2. Explain like I'm 5 how to add 4 ccr-ii strips to the pixie4 and 8 to the pixie 8 where they have one unit ID number but multiple circuits, each containing 50 pixels. Thanks in advance!!

    Problems setting up superstar

    Is there any way to easily reverse the order of one of the strings on the pixie controller?

    Pixie 16D

    Just got finished changing all my Unit IDs. What a PAIN!!!!!! I wish they had made it a little more clear when purchasing the Pixie controllers how the unit IDs worked..... Thanks for the tip and the screen shot. My wife is an excel spread sheet on steroids and would love to make that and keep it up to date! Hope you have a great holiday season and thanks for the help!!

    Pixie 16D

    I'm having an issue with my show and I think it's because this issue. I replaced my CMB16's with Pixie controllers (a Pixie4 and a Pixie8). My pixie4 is Unit ID 02. I have a CCR that is unit 03 and that is behaving exactly the same as the strip on the pixie4. Are they behaving as the same Unit ID ?? If so, is the only solution to change the unit IDs?
  6. I've got it working on Sequence Editor, I was wondering how to add them on the Visualizer
  7. The pixie is just one Unit ID. Then they have 4, 8, or 16 sub IDs or whatever they call them

    Attaching Velcro to CCR -- Help!

    Has anyone found a good solution to mounting the CCRs to their aluminum fascia boards ? I bought several of these at Lowes: http://www.lowes.com/pd_240805-82801-921-08_0__?productId=1068569&Ntt=aluminum&Ns=p_product_price|0&pl=1&currentURL=%3FNs%3Dp_product_price%7C0%26Ntt%3Daluminum%26page%3D1&facetInfo= and used tape at the cut points in the CCR to hold the strip to this skinny, piece of aluminum to start the mounting system, but short of drilling several holes in my aluminum fascia boards, haven't figured out how to do it. Thoughts ?
  9. I have 2 networks; one with 5 CCRs another with 4. The other night I switched the network speed and the entire show kinda stopped midway through a song and then picked back up. Not sure what the deal with that was! I'm about to go live this weekend and am kinda worried !!
  10. I just finished updating all the firmware for everything :D Is there anywhere that specifies what the changes are in the CCR behavior from version to version ?

    3.10 and firmware?

    Looks like that's what I'm doing today then :D

    What ever happened to SUPERSPEED ?

    Sorry to revisit this subject but...... #1 Is there ANY way to know if the RS-485's are 500k compatible ? I bought them about 14 months ago. #2 I've read conflicting reports that if ALL the controllers on a network are not 500k 'compatible' it will wreak havoc in the signal processing speeds and cause 'issues.' Anyone verify that ?
  13. Curious - were you able to update the firmware of your CCRs without manually plugging each one into the computer? I have my setup ready to run the show, 4 CCRs, 2 16-channel 1602 3rd gen controllers, and a 16-channel DC board. - ALL need firmware updates, but I REALLY don't want to have to unplug all of them and do them individually!!!

    3.10 and firmware?

    I'm still debating on upgrading the firmware. My CCRs are 1.05 or .07 I believe lolz. Have you guys noticed improvements in the responsiveness of the lights with the firmware patches ?

    firmware updates

    CMB24D firmware ?

    3.10 and firmware?

    What's the benefit of upgrading the firmware for the CCRs and the 1602 gen3 controllers? I'm somewhat weary of firmware upgdates as sometimes they can mess things up :(
  18. Go into HWU, and find your 1602 controller. Go to advanced configuration, and make sure all the channels are set to LOR Standard and make sure you update the unit's config to accept the changes. This is what fixed my problem. It's important to note that you should make sure your lights are dimmable, both the fixture they're in as well as the bulb/led. If it's a setting problem, this should be your solution. Hope this helps :)
  19. I figured out why. I went into the HWU and it was a simple setting problem for me

    Sequencing CCRs the old-fashioned way

    Sweet, gonna give it another look. Seems really expensive :(

    Sequencing CCRs the old-fashioned way

    Hey Don, Just curious how much time you think is saved by using SSE vs SE for multiple CCRs once you overcome the learning curve. I'm in the same boat with 9 CCRs spanning my rooflines. Bad thing is I have RGB dumb strips that I'm not sure what to do with when the CCRs are going crazy as they can only turn on/off, change intensity/color....

    Simple Show Builder...how does it work

    SSB only wants to find shows in the default "Sequences" file folder. Anyway it can look other places? I have Halloween and Christmas folders because there are too many files, and SSB can't see them

    transfering sequences

    You'll also want to make sure it's not a variable bit file. Most people use .wav formats because as you program, you'll use the play visible screen mode in the play options, and it doesn't 'sync up.'
  24. I have the outside controller secured to a plate inside the enclosure with CA-friendly 'bumpers.' I think my problem is there is very little room and when I shut the lid, the wires contact the mosfets.
  25. That's the one I haven't had problems with lolz. The other one is outside and is the one I have constant problems with Should've snapped a picture of that one. I think it's because when I close the lid, the wires are compressed and contact the mosfets. But it's hard to see if that's the problem obviously because the lid is closed
