no, thats what I can't figure out, the first three I did worked perfect the last three which are the new controllers (green flashing light instead of a red one) I am at a loss here.

Well, I guess you will have to wait for someone smarter than me, and that will be a whole lot of people, to answer.

Right now I can't get to my controllers or find my rs485 plug so I can't check. I'm sure Jbullard will help you out.

I'm with Pete I thought the LORTray needed to be 'unloaded' for firmware upgrades?

First I have heard of this, I am running the 2.9.4 Advanced the new controllers are the G3 don't know if that makes a difference or not, no panic yet lots of time to get this issue resolved.

No harm in unloading it and see if it will work.:)

"LORTray" is in program files > light0rama. Maybe program files(x86) depending on your operating system.

Just double click on it (LORTray) when you find it.

Well, first of all, you have the adapter hooked up? Did you try the auto config on the com port? Other than those, I got nothing.
