  1. Boy do I feel dumb... The controller lost power due to GFCI tripping several times this season. Until a few days ago this did not cause any issues. One of those times 4 days ago it lost the output configuration and was sitting at the default. I looked at my notes and mistakenly used a config that I did when I first got started that never worked. I should have deleted it from my notes. My apologies for exercising your brains for my hurried panic. It was my output config on the AlphaPix controller. All is back to normal, except for the strand that failed. That I will replace tomorrow. The video was delayed to see if I could fix it. Thankfully. Again thanks for all that responded. I really shows me how this group feels about each other. Always trying to help.
  2. No. All but one are 2 years old and the new I purchased fro HC as ram out of time. And they all worked fine since Thanksgiving night until 4 days ago.
  3. Thanks for the quick reply. Reverse order is not checked and I am not using zigzag. I will recheck my channel configuration on the AlphaPix. I am running 4.3. One more thing, I have several sequences that only have frequency change on the pixel sequence and they appear to be okay. Could be they are so basic I cannot tell they are wrong too.
  4. I have been running a 12 strand 50 pixel per megatree for three years. I do the sequencing in superstar. And add it to a regular LOR sequence. Everything was working as expected open till four days ago. Any pixel sequence that has animation is displaying incorrectly. Bad messed up. I can’t make Ryme or reason out of it. I have not made any changes, updated any programs, updated any OS files. The computer does not have access to the Internet at this time. I’ve swapped cables. I’ve reset the controller. I can ping the controller and access it’s internal set up page via an Internet browser. The controller test fine so that’s why I’m posting here instead of “general decorating”. It’s a HolidayCoro AlphaPix 16. I was trying to think of how to describe what’s displayed and it looks like the animations are miss placed on the tree and too large spreading across too many strands perhaps. I’m still running 4.3. I have someone coming to videotape it tomorrow. I hope someone can help soon. Any help will be most appreciated
  5. I too am looking for Christmas with a Capital C- Go Fish. Preferably without the spoken dialog in the beginning. Please reply to thread or message me. Thanks!
  6. For the pixel tree I use SuperStar add on. To use the Intensity feature (makes adding Pixel sequences to regular LOR sequences easy) you will need to upgrade to Pro and purchase the correct license version for the number of pixels you have. There are a whole lot of folks on here that know so much more than me. I am sure many will chime in. Best wishes.
  7. Thanks for your response. My customers’ number one concern is shipping charges. Most all my work is custom and not cheap, but they still want “free” shipping. My mailman will pick up my Priority Mail, so that is an advantage. I have FedEx and UPS account as well as my USPS account. USPS is most often $4-5 cheaper that the others. As for is it worth the savings. That’s subjective of course. I would much rather give LOR my money for their product, however I’m letting the $17 “get” to me. I’ll decide soon.
  8. Thank you to those replying concerning shipping of the device (which all make good points). Is there anyone that has used a 3 party RS485 adapter?
  9. I agree with you. It if cost LOR almost $17 to send out a 5oz package (I just weighed it on my postage scale), then it is a massively inefficient process or a most definite profit center. I can send it priority mail for $6 and change and most likely you will have it in no more than 3 mail days. Thanks for your insight.
  10. I ship out things that weigh move than the RS485 adapter for my business and have never had to charge more than $9 shipping and a lot of times it is $7. I use Priority Mail for most packages. The post office supplies the boxes as well. Almost $17.00 for shipping is just hard to reconcile. I have one, I just want a backup. Thanks, robert
  11. Has anyone used a non-LOR usb to rs45 adapter? Just wondering as LOR’s shipping charges make a $30 item into a $47 item.
  12. “Also a favorite of mine that I use for 10-20 seconds in several of my sequences is to set all rows to TCM 1 and set TCM 1 to the following: Theme: Star burst -Color: Native-Color by time: Not by time-Movement: None-Intensity: 100% - You will get patterns that move across the ribbons according to the music.” Brian, thanks for this suggestion. I used it on 5 songs for which I did not have time to do a mega tree sequence. Way better than a dark tree.
  13. Does SSS have any canned effects like the open source free software? Spirals, Butterfly, etc.
  14. As I mentioned before at one point I was disappointed at the cost, but after the time I had with a popular open source / free application, I am on board with the LOR pricing. The one hour response I got from you on a forum post was such a positive experience. Now that you have been open and given full disclosure (full enough for me) you have solidified my opinion. I never liked being referred to a FB page for support and I was rarely provide the help needed. My investment in the 24CCR upgrade (and s4 Pro) was money well spent. I am only using 12 strings for this year’s show, so I have some growing room. Now, I am off my soapbox and will no longer comment on sss or any LOR software pricing. Have a Merry Christmas to all.
  15. I am having no luck at all... just pixels falling from the top or horizontally one strand at a time. Some shooting up from the bottom. Not sure what I am not doing, but I am new to SSS and I was going to use Instant sequence to be a stop-gap until I can do mega tree sequence for all of my AC sequences. One example that may not make since is a wash of pixels from up to down right to left or the opposite of those. Like you can do with Morph....
