  1. Catesjaor I used to buy the lights on sale at the end of the season but like many have suggested HLE has lights that are far superiors. In the long run I ended up replacing all my cheap LED's for theirs. My GFI kept tripping during the shows and what was happening is water getting into the sockets. The sockets also become loose and rusty over time and it's impossible to find that one loose light when the whole string goes out. HLE has the commercial grade, sealed, and waterproof lights. This is so important in Oregon when all we get is rain in December. Yes, it's a bit more but in
  2. If I got a letter like that I'd make sure my display was bigger and brighter the next year. Funny how it's always the people that preach acceptance and tolerance of other people are the ones themself that are intolerant and unaccepting with anything they disagree with. They want to make sure everyone else is miserable as them.
  3. I would like a copy sent to wally1@teleport.com I agree to not sell or share this sequence with anyone. This request will be used for my private, personal use on my show only. I also understand the mere fact of making changes to the borrowed sequence and pasting it in to my sequence does not make it mine to share. Thank You!
  4. I am using the UV flood for Halloween. I messed with channel 4 an 5 in the hardware utility to set how fast I wanted the strobe effect. For me I like channel 4 set low, like 5%, and channel 5 set to 90%. So when I want the strobe effect I fill those two channels with that intensity level. Use the hardware unity and the channel sliders to get the desired effect you like, and then set that as your strobe effect.
  5. I was looking at that too but seemed really expensive. Many years ago I bought a stand through a company I think was called 3D or 3G lighting creations, or something like that. I have not been able to find them again even after doing many searches. They were powder coated and had a mounting plate with mounting holes for any kind of controller you could think of. Very well made but this was about 8-10 years ago and I haven't seen them since.
  6. Ha Ha!!!!!!!!👍 Found the problem.......opened up the back which I really didn't want to do and did the reset. I downloaded and installed the firmware for the RGB flood, and now it works perfectly!!! I thought the UV and RBG floods were pretty similar but they both had different numbers/descriptions in the firmware files. On the LOR firmware update page it only lists this firmware for the RGB flood so I was afraid that if I installed it on the UV flood I would mess it all up. I hope LOR will put a description that they use the same firmware-I didn't know that. Well now that i
  7. Sorry, didn't see the question. No, I did not open the back. Changing the unit ID can be done without opening the back. I even tried using unit 1 as the default factory ID and still nothing. I thought about opening the back and do a controller reset but in the manual it says if you do, you run the risk of it leaking and no longer being weatherproof. When I made the preview using the tool it shows only 3 channels, I can certainly add 2 more but understand how the other flood uses red and Green. I don't think that will make much difference. I thought about trying to download and use
  8. All my controllers are Generation 3 with updated firmware. I looked on the firmware page and there is and updated firmware for the RBG flood but not the UV flood. I used the hardware utility to confirm it's working and the channels are set up. In the preview I used the UV light preview that's built into the program.
  9. Very Frustrating......changed to a different unit ID, ran fine in the hardware utility. Changed the ID in the sequence editor still nothing. I thought it might be something simple such as the "control lights" function but runs fine with other units. It's not the cables, why would it not get info from the sequencer? Every other unit and light does.
  10. Well thats what I was wondering. So I switched the unit ID to 5 in the hardware utility and then switched that in the sequencer as well, and still nothing. I'm wondering if I have to open up the back to switch the unit ID? There are no dip switches that I know of, you change the ID in the hardware utility. I'll try messing with it again. It's just bugging me that I can't figure this out.
  11. yep, regular, COM 3, 500, enhanced. I don't have a huge display 2 16 channel AC units (1 is the showtime director) 1 dumb controller for 5 floods 3 CCR with 5 strings of 50 pixel lights (on garage, gutter) All running from a showtime director. Everything runs great, except the blacklight.
  12. it's all on just 1 network, set up to run "regular" at 500. (I'll double check)
  13. I'm appealing to all the people who are much smarter than me. I have the 50watt UV light that I want to use in my halloween sequences. Went to the hardware utility and set the unit to 10. It has uses 3 channels, 1 for on, 1 for strobe on time, 1 for strobe time off. Tested them all in the hardware utility, everything working fine. I go to my sequence and play it, only nothing happens. I looked and the "control lights" is checked and if I hook up another controller with lights it runs fine. I double checked to make sure the unit and channels match in the sequence. Still nothing. I
  14. I've been looking for that one for a while too.....love Dean Martin. wally1@teleport.com
