  1. I agree with the recommendation on the Director. I've been using one in a similar situation for a number of years. The Director has been rock solid for eight Minnesota winters.
  2. You have options: 1. Purchase a DMX Adapter like this. Or some Enttec compatible adapter. 2. Use a device/bridge that will convert the LOR Protocol to DMX, that being the IDMX1000. 3. Use a device/bridge that will convert E1.31 protocol to DMX. From LOR the Pixcon16 would perform this conversion. There are many other vendors that will sell you devices that will bridge E1.31 to DMX. - Once you have selected the way you are going to supply the DMX signal to your devices you need to appropriately configure the LOR Network Settings . Go to he LOR help file and search for DMX. T
  3. Not sure why it worked but I had a string of LEDs that would have a slight glow despite the channel being off. I saw a suggestion to unplug the string, rotate the plug 180 degrees and plug it back in. The glow stopped. I don't argue with success.
  4. The portion of the log you show has the working show come from the folder - C:\Users\Tom\Documents\Light-O-Rama\Sequences\ The one failing indicates it should be in the folder - C:\Users\Tom\Documents\Light-O-Rama\Sequences\2020 Raw Sequences\ 2020 Raw Sequences is a folder below your Sequences folder. Are you certain you have not moved 2020-Christmas.lss up to the folder C:\Users\Tom\Documents\Light-O-Rama\Sequences\
  5. Are you using the Hub to record your shows on to the SD Card? I have a similar network configuration where the Regular network controls a number of older controllers and the AUX A controls pixel devices. I had problems where the devices on the Regular network did not work. What I found was when the Hub goes to record your show to the card, by default it puts a check mark in the box "Output LOR Enhanced channels as well as LOR normal (if available)". For my Regular Network I deselected that option, created the card and the devices work properly. From the Hub (Assuming old devices ar
  6. USE AT YOUR RISK!! Yon can open the .lss (show file) with a text editor. The full path of of your sequence is in the file. MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT ASSOCIATE YOUR TEXT EDITOR WITH THE .lss EXTENSION.
  7. FYI - Kevin Dunn is back.
  8. @Paul Masterson I have a Word document that contains images and descriptions of the process I followed to adjust my Pixcon16. I cannot attach it here due to size. Send me a PM with your email address and I will send it to you. If someone wishes to host the document I am willing to share. The usual disclaimers apply: Use at your own risk, your mileage may vary etc. Below is an outline of what I did to adjust the props that are currently using the Pixcon16 in LOR mode to be E1.31 enabled and to add a DMX device. I used S5 for the actual work. For S5 - You will need
  9. Well this turned into a lot of writing/reading. I'm hoping all of these details doesn't make this unusable. I am currently not using my PixCon16 as a DMX bridge. I started doing DMX a number of years (7+) ago and acquired an IDMX instead. As I understand the documentation you are correct in that you would have to adjust your programming for the elements that currently use the PixCon16 from being LOR devices to DMX devices. In S4 I don't see a way to do a mass change which will make it painful if you have a lot of channels assigned to the PixCon16. I can do some experimentation
  10. Your Pixcon 16 can act as a DMX bridge if you are running it in E1.31 mode. The User Guide linked below describes the process. http://www1.lightorama.com/PDF/PixCon16Manual-V1.5-Showtime(S4).pdf
  11. I'm going to be THAT guy. This is a great discussion of the PixieLink but the title of the thread is N4-G4-MP3 Director Documentation. It seems to me it would make sense to create a new thread that indicates it contains discussion about the PixieLink and copy/move the discussion there. I suspect there could be a number of people that would enjoy seeing the discussion but might not notice it due to the title of the thread. Had I not been curious about the N4-G4-MP3 Director I would have missed this very interesting topic.
  12. I am trying out the S5 software to see if I want to transition from S4 to S5. As a part of that process I am updating/cleaning up the preview to take advantage of some of the new features. One thing that has got me stumped is the behavior of the Lines-Connected Prop. On my house I have a string of pixels where the orientation would be the first pixel is on the right side and the input from the controller would be on the right side as well. When I then use the Sequence Editor to light the prop I just created, the pixels are reversed. Pixel 1 is at the left end of the prop when displayed in
  13. Pages 21 -23 in the guide found at the link Orville posted has a good discussion of how to assign a show to a trigger and how to influence how they will behave. E.g Does it play one time or loop, can it be interrupted etc. I brought up the LOR HUB and it is confirming/indicating the show number corresponds directly to the trigger with that number . I checked in the Hardware Utility and if you choose the option "Plays when triggered" you then have to select the trigger. When you tell it to create the SD card the Hardware Utility then chooses for you the show number. Thus Show 1 would r
  14. Sorry, I didn't read the question completely. In my S4 installation the ..\PixelEditor folder has a file named LORPixelEditorData.xml that gets populated when I ask the PE to create a preview from a visualizer file. Perhaps that is what you are looking for.
  15. Visualizer files have the extension .lee and are in the ..\Visualizations\editor folder.
