  1. The wife is my biggest obstacle, she keeps asking me to program these new songs for the show this year. I keep explaining that programming time is over and we are now in setup time. January -August is programming and prop building time, September -December is setup and show time, quit messing with my schedule.
  2. They did that back in the 2016 Olympics during the ceremonies.
  3. Pixie16 will use IDs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0A, 0B, 0C, 0D, 0E, 0F, 10, The next ID available for your CTB16 is 11. A Basic license that shows in your profile will not run these two controllers, you will need a Pro license.
  4. Excellent service and they are in my neck of the woods.
  5. Reset the controller, power the controller off, move jumper to pins 5 & 6 and power the controller on. The status LED will fast blink during reset. Once you see this, power the controller off and move the jumper back to pins 4 & 5.
  6. Just an FYI, your profile shows that you have an Standard license and a Pixie16 will need a high speed enhanced network which is only available with a Pro license.
  7. You don't need to change any setting on your controllers. You only need to configure the ELL settings, frequency, speed and power. Leave all the controller settings the same they were when they were working. Your CTB04-ELL is like two things combined into one box, a four port controller and the ELL. You set the four port controller just like any other controller then you have to configure the ELL side separately.
  8. What I mean by that is stop trying to take short cuts and easier routes when running your LOR network. The LOR network is RS485 which is a serial network meaning daisy chaining your controllers end to end. There are no switches or routers, there are no Y's or T's or even W's for that matter. The only way to connect them on a computer is through your usb port and usb adapter, NOT THE ETHERNET PORT!! Your LOR RS485 network can be up to 4,000 feet long so there is no shortage there. If you connect your controllers any other way you stand a good chance of burning up that controller that you paid g
  9. Each one should be hardwired one at a time for configuring and they should each be the only controller connected.
  10. In the HU under the LOR RF tab where you configure the ELL side of the controller there is a power level setting you can change. Also make sure that you set up the receiving CTB04-ELL on the same frequency and network speed. They should be set at the same speed that you are running your network up to 115K. Also keep in mind that these are line of sight.
  11. Yes, you will connect via cat5 to your USB adapter. Then add your other controllers one at a time until everything works correctly. If you encounter a problem stop and fix it before continuing. This is a step by step process until everything works.
  12. The CTB04-ELL has dip switches inside that come set to Unit ID 1. You need to turn all the dip switches off then set the ID in the HU as the dip switches override the HU and will always revert back to ID 1. Once you have the ID set in the HU select that unit and click the LOR RF tab to configure the ELL side of the controller. This is where you set the frequency and network speeds. Ensure the CTB04-ELL is the only controller connected when setting this up.
