  1. I'm going to add one of the LOR pixel tree kits to my display next year. The tree kit is about. 6' 6" and it will set on top of a platform about one foot off the ground. How big of a star should I use for a topper? Is there a general rule for size. I have a 24" pixel star which I don't know if it would be too big. Any ideas? Thanks
  2. I can't seem to find my control panel menu to enable my show. The blue bulb is in the system tray and if I click on it I get the com listening. If I click on the control panel in the all apps menu it starts the puts the blue bulb in the trap and if I right click on the bulb it have a drop down menu that will let me open the comm listener or close the window. Any body have any ideas???????? Than you
  3. Found the problem thanks to DevMike It was my video driver was out of date.
  4. Thank You Very Much. I upgraded the driver for my video card and it fixed it all.
  5. I upgraded to S4 and the visualizer is acting crazy. I checked the other posts but nothing helped. I get the white screen in the visualizer like others have mentioned. I have to reboot, turn the advanced rendering off and on and sometimes it will work, then when it does work none of my shimmers show up in the visualizer, the lights that are suppose to shimmer just go off when it is called to shimmer. Gotta be a bug in S4. TOOOOO close to Christmas for this to happen. I have been playing with it for a week and can't get it to work right. Does anybody have any ideas????????? Everything is worki
  6. I have S4 and everything was working OK then one day I went in to fine tune some of my songs and I started having problems. A couple of my songs would start OK then the the sound would get messed up by sounding like it was in a barrel, fadding out, and disappearing altogether. Then I also noticed the shimmer stopped working on all the songs. I can't remember making any changes. I thought at first, computer sound card but outside of LOR everything works OK. I checked to see if the twinkle worked and that is OK. Then I restarted everything and one song cleared up but another one was the same. I
  7. So how does that work? Does basically the signal just goes out and the controller picks up its own signal and passes the rest and it so fast it doesn't matter?
  8. I am adding three more lor pixel sets to my show this year. Two of the sets are on the other side of the yard. Does it matter the order that the controllers are plugged in? ex. MY regular controllers are numbered 1, 2, 3 then the pixels controllers are numbered 10, 20, 24, 30, 40. When you plug the cat 5 cables in do they need to be plugged in to the controllers in that order or can I just plug them in in any order so I don't have to run more cables all over? ex. 2, 3, 1, 10, 30, 40, 20, 24. Thank you
  9. What are P10 panels?????? Anybody have a picture??????
  10. Does anybody have an idea when they will start shipping items that we bought from the sale???????????????? What was the wait period from last year?????
  11. Ron, I followed your instructions and it did work great. Bob was right I just wasn't able to figure it out. Thank you both. Have a great night.
  12. Thanks Bob, it worked on some of the changes I wanted. There are others that I was hoping to change to a completely different color like red to green, or blue, etc. Maybe there will be something in the future where you could hylite an area and change all the blocks that are turned on to a different color. Have a Great day. Dave
  13. Is there a easy fast way to change color on an existing sequence in the sequence editor on something that is sequenced for pixels? Or is the slow painful way the only way?
  14. Has anybody had any trouble opening superstar sequencer in windows 10. I can't get it to even open. Any body have any ideas? That is with S4. I also tried reloading the lor software and it didn't help????????
  15. I figured it out. When I was setting up the ccb/device in the sequencer I didn't check off ccd with 2 strings. Oh well.
  16. I've used an Lor cosmic color pixel to create mini trees and last year I only lit them as one color and I'm trying to make the pixels light as they will go up and down the tree. I have the sequencing down ok but I can't get them to work in the visualizer. I can only get one of the trees to light no matter what I do. The visualizer keeps telling me to set the starting pixel to number 1 then the other string tells me to use the starting pixel to the number 2 or higher then the first string tell me to use the starting pixel to 3 or higher and so on and so on. I just can't get it to work. Anybod
  17. Does any body know if the pixels fit a 12mm hole or what size hole is needed to mount them?
  18. I just tucked them in the back in an area not behind the bulbs that are used for the face then tapped them to wire. There was no problem disturbing the front of the face. I did cover some of them with tape. I also tried to place the strings so the extra bulbs were in the middle of the run making easy to use them in either direction to replace any bulbs in the future.
  19. I think I know the answer but I just want to verify it. I can't find the post again but I understand that when you set up a wireless fm transmission for the music to use outdoor speakers along with that setup you need to use a radio then sent that out to the speakers, is this correct? I used outdoor speakers last year which worked great but some people wanted to listen in there car so I want to add the wireless along with the speakers. I did see a post that explained how but can't find it. Thank you for any help or suggestions.
  20. The balls in the tree are sparkle balls. I made my with regular old rgb single color lights, if you make them with pixels you can get all the colors with a lot more expense. www.sparkleball.com is one site that shows you how to build them. They are hard to get a good picture of because they are really bright.
  21. The star on the roof is make out of 1" pvc and I used one 16' rgb ribbon with 3 channels for the star legs and one channel and 15 rgb modules for the center. I used Gary Lipps design with a few small changes. His web site for building the star is www.holidayrgb.com
  22. The talking trees came from Holiday Coro. They are made out of corrugated plastic board. He sells them as one or a set of four. You need to build your own frame and supply the lights. Each tree uses 16 channels. I use LOR controllers. If your familiar with Holiday Coro he supplies instructions for the trees. I
