  1. I use at least 3 50W LOR floods for both Halloween and Christmas. yes, I have had wet ethernet jacks, which in turn, corroded both the ethernet (rj45) and the waterproof connector. I purchased new connectors for the floodlights....id have to go through papers to discover the vendor. the problem seems to be the split rubber insert that should be tight on the ethernet cable, but is not. I have done several things to help...first, I have wrapped the portion of the ethernet cable (that gets covered by the rubber insert) with electrical tape to make it thicker. next, I have put a little dielec
  2. SOLUTION for MacBook Pro/Parallels/Windows 10 LORHub Runtime Error "76" Path Not Found Read my previous post!
  3. I am also getting a LOR Hub runtime error '76' - Path Not Found error when trying to start LOR Hub. Slightly different scenario- Running WIndows 10 under Parallels 14 on a 2019 MacBook Pro. I can run the sequencer and the superstar modules, network config, etc....but not LOR Hub I have uninstalled 5.2.4, done the regwipe, rebooted, installed 5.3.2, same problem Update! uninstalled again, reboot, registry wipe (saved license), reboot, install 5.2.4....altered file location for LOR sequences....was set to a shared Mac/Windows folder....changed to user Windows user...new
  4. I'm not sure what pics you want.....its more of a general question to me.... if you mean AC light channels, then yes. Mostly, I do like using the VU meter tool....so if I say "turn on channel x 77% of the time", then I might like to turn OFF channel y 23% of the time. For the most part, it works pretty well, but there seems to be times where I end up with both channels on.....like 77% might really be 77.3%, and 23% might really be 23.4%, so there is an overlap. (?) Usually, if its significant, I just re-select my percentages, and I can get it very close to perfect. I just wish there was a t
  5. I've been lighting this house in one form or another for 15 years now, starting with a static display, to a gingerbread house static display, adding a "Mr. Christmas" unit, then switching to LOR, using mini-lights, then LED, and finally adding in RGB. My show runs Halloween from early October through Halloween, then Christmas from Thanksgiving night to a few days past New Years day, typically running from 6-11, and longer when Christmas arrives. I've had only 1 complaint....well, maybe 20(??!!) from the same guy, my new neighbor. Most people tell me they can't wait to see it, that I'm a tra
  6. Hey, CLASS (Chrismas Light Addict Super Stars), does this sound like a good idea to you? Often, I find I have multiple sets of lights on the same element of my display, and I want to do an alternating function like red on and blue off, the red off and blue on.....or one fading up while the other fades down. Generally, I have it in a steady beat....like 4 seconds of on, 4 off, so all I do is copy the one I've sequenced and paste it with a 4 second offset on the other, thus creating an alternating effect, which still requires some tweaking afterward. Where I really get difficulty is on functi
  7. Similar problem here. Channel 13 is on faintly as long as the controller has power. Tried reset to no avail
  8. TODDM, So, the import should be specifically to create a new sequence....to load in all my channels as a template. If I want to add a controller and/or more channels, I should do that to the template, and only at the end? Would I then create new sequences and copy&paste the timings in? for example, sequence "A" has 32 channels, but this year, I want to add another controller....so I update sequence "A" with the new controller and channels, and export that as my new master configuration. I create a brand new sequence "A1" with the new master configuration, then copy the timings from the
  9. Thanks for the replies....yes, I heard the same advice.....but, this year I have added 8 RGB floods into the mix, and the thought of manually adding all those channels to every sequence from last year made me shudder, so I came up with the idea of creating them once and importing them....which only lets me put them first.... beyond the little weirdness that makes me add one extra channel and then delete it, all of my sequences still work. It saved me a ton of time. I suppose I could drag and drop them to the end, but since it works the way I have it, I vote "NO"!
  10. I tried both the intensity method and the color fade....the intensity is......intense....the color fade, while faster, seems to leave more room for "mousefarts?". I set up the situation by adding 1 RGB channel followed by 2 channels with device type of LOR Controller, modified the unit id to match the RGB unit and circuits to 4 and 5. I wasn't sure if it was necessary, but under advanced settings, I chose CCD Special Channel (since they were to be macro channels)....it works but is this the right way? I don't know! Anyway, I set this up as a standalone sequence, then exported the configura
  11. I have found the "Channel Configuration Import/Export" feature very helpful when needing to add a new device to a series of sequences. When I import the new channels (15 in this case, 3 RGB Floods with 2 additional channels each for strobe control), a little weirdness occurs. The first time, it overwrote the first channels.....so, I added 15 channels ABOVE the first original channel.....this time it overwrote the 16th original channel because for some reason it added 16 channels instead of 15. My solution was to manually add 16 channels, import the 15, and then delete the first "new channel
  12. I added a flood as a rgb device, type Cosmic Color Array with 1 pixel, which would give me color control. To add strobe effects, I added two regular channels below the rgb channels, using the same unit id. it seems a little clunky when I edit the strobe effects, because I have to set my intensity toolsettings to accomodate 1%, etc, for creating lightning effects, which may limit using common intensities until you change them back. I also wanted to add this (and two more floods) to existing sequences....it gets a little tedious, configuring 5 channels per flood over and over. So, I created
  13. Maybe we can get the LOR team to draw up some A-typical setups to show multi-network setups graphically. If you do, please add some specification notes such as USB red/black speeds, com ports, Ethernet cabling, and network loads.....
  14. In the LOR Hardware application, isnt there a question about using this comm port to control your shows, which pops up when you change ports? What happens if you say Yes to the wrong port? Just hoping this has something to do with your problem......
