Mega dittos. I did the same thing last week. Maybe our extra $60 or so can help Dan improve the product even more.

I noticed Bill's LOR signature:

"Which are in transit, UPS tracking says they are LENEXA, KS. only 232.38 miles away:)"

Hey Bill, my controllers are also in Lenexa KS awaiting their final destination, OKC. Are they having a LOR-mini there?:laughing:

Can't wait to add to the collection :].

Mine are in LENEXA KS, 232 miles away (did a UPS track), I am like a kid at Christmas (and this is a Christmas web site). It does not look like I will get mine for the this weekend, but next weekend I will do a mini layout in the garage, just to see how the sequences look.

Yep, me too.

I did a mini layout in my garage last month (when I received my first two controllers) just to get an idea and it was like heaven. I had 32 strands of lights all over the place bouncing and dancing and just going crazy. I LOVED IT :]. And you will too :].

I am awaiting my new controller . I want to play. play play. I'm sure mine won't have the problems with the voltage regulator. Dan does a great job, improving products and letting us know with problems they may have found. Like the voltage regulator is his post. Hats off to LOR.:smilingelf:

UPS now says my controllers are now on their way to Tulsa, OK. Dan, would it be ok to play with the one's I get, until the new one's arrive. I promise not to hurt them or disrespect them in anyway.

Well most likely you will have the problem and even if you do not I want to replace the card. It appears that this lot of voltage regulators has a problem.

This was not a new design or any real change from the last batch of cards so when we received them we put them through a regular chase sequence to make sure that every channel works independently. They do work fine independently but if you try to blink them all at one time then BAM it doesn't work.

Im sorry about that.

Yeaaaa, my controllers have arrived, I am now an offical LOR user (ok, maybe I will be when I actually get them hooked up to some lights and play). It's just so exciting

Please be forewarned that the units you have are going to be replaced. There is a bad voltage regulator in your cards. :(

Regulators always ruin the fun...funny thing, I work in the Environmental Regulatory Compliance Department. r, d, r, r (laughing).

Hope this won't be a problem in April.

Good choice on the weller in the background. I love mine!

As for the LOR boards, If we could get a order button for the LOR1602W, I would own about 6 myself. :laughing:

I got mine today as well :waycool::waycool::waycool:. And I recieved an e-mail from Dan on what to do when the others are recieved. Dan, I'll wait until the others are shipped before opening them.

But in the mean time, can I wrap the ones I did get in Christmas wrapping paper and put em under the tree :]? I promise not to open it :], I promise :].

Tom

Thanks for the quick fix on an error which was not under your control. :]

Thanks for the support, it is appreciated!! The (not under our control) is not 100% true. We should have caught this earlier. Two changes will be made as a result of this:

1. Prior to a production run a sample run will be executed (already done) AND the samples will include a sample of each lot number if a particular part has multiple lot numbers in the production run (was not done!).

2. Individual card testing will be more involved. Prior to this, we tested each card by running a chase sequence and testing that each circuit worked and worked independently of the others. This tests communications and errors such as, Stuck On, Stuck Off, Cross triggering of channels. The test will be expanded to cover more scenarios and will catch such things as happened with the voltage regulator.

---------------

The next production run which is already in progress (with another manufacture) has new procedures already in place. First we will have the pre-production samples built then the PCB assembler will pass the cards on to another company which will program and test the cards prior to installing the heatsinks. Then when Light-O-Rama receives the cards we will put them through a second more stringent test, box them or install them in LOR160xWs. In the case of LOR160xWs a third test will be performed that tests that the wires are installed properly.

Dan,

I had the same test going before I realized there was a problem. They ran fine in the chase sequence. So who'd have thought there would be a problem? It's too bad they all got shipped before you found out though.

Best wishes...

jeff
