  1. Would a 12 volt 40 amp, 500 watt power supply be sufficient to run a Pixie 16 with 16 12 volt 50 pixel strings attached to it at 50%?
  2. Sweet. I actually already have 1 Pixie 16. I have it to run a mega tree. This would be to replace a traditional controller for the house. I have to practice more with the software to get used to it. Thanks for the help!
  3. Sounds good. I'm not too stressed about losing the controller to a failure. If I enclose it and keep it dry, I should be just fine. I just didn't want to have it all set up for one controller and then find out that physically, because of distance, it wouldn't work. I didn't realize that you could go that far with an extension.
  4. Wasn't sure if that was best or not. Considering reaching each end of the house and of course reaching each window. There could be as much as a 25 foot run of wire BEFORE I reach a window or two. Will I encounter a problem with that long of a run (drop in voltage/brightness)?
  5. Hey Everyone! Looking for advice. I want to outline my house with RGB Pixel Strings along with the front windowns too. What would be best, 5 volt or 12 volt pixel strings? How do you lay it out? Meaning, where's the best place to put the pixel controllers? That will help me decide if I buy Pixie 4 or Pixie 8 controllers and how many of each. I realize you can only go so far with wiring leading up to the strings. Will I run into any problems programing the layout into the Lightorama software? In other words, is it best to keep all the house outline strings on one controlle
  6. Sounds great. Thanks for the pictures. Here's what I was potentially looking to order... https://ar.aliexpress.com/item/32949663591.html?src=google&albch=shopping&acnt=708-803-3821&isdl=y&slnk=&plac=&mtctp=&albbt=Google_7_shopping&aff_platform=google&aff_short_key=UneMJZVf&albagn=888888&isSmbAutoCall=false&needSmbHouyi=false&albcp=9760820159&albag=99451607003&trgt=894486322073&crea=en32949663591&netw=u&device=c&albpg=894486322073&albpd=en32949663591&gclid=Cj0KCQjwgtWDBhDZARIsADEKwgOBBEIscPveUUSzxpUW2
  7. Hi Everybody, I'm going to order some 50 node SQUARE pixel strings but I wanted to get some feedback on the actual lengths of them. I was looking at ordering from Ali Express. Their descriptions aren't very precise. I'm pretty sure many have ordered these before. Just wondering what length I can expect a 50 node string to be? There's confilicting descriptions that show 100 mm and 120 mm in between pixel nodes. That equals about a 3 foot difference in the overall length of the strings. Perhaps some lots are different lengths than others? Either way, if anyone has ordered latel
  8. Dibblejr, you have it right. I should have explained further. I want to copy/paste from a doner sequence to my own. Yes, it would be from the SAME song to a sequence of mine. Obviously, it would line up and make more sense. What I have is a pixie 16 controller running a 180 degree, 16 string of 50 lights pixel tree. I'm new to S5 this year so it's a little tough. Some of the sequences I have that I'd like to transfer to mine have RGB included in them. I'm just not sure how I would get that info into my tree. Do I have to somehow breakout all the channels in the grid view then past
  9. Hey Everyone. Is there a way to copy an RGB Pixel part of a sequence from one sequence to another? Same song, just a different set of sequences. I'm guessing it's not that simple...but in case there's a way, I would like to know. Thanks!
  10. Just an update for you...I did update the firmware on all the controllers and BAM! It works like a champ! I did update the network to run the 500k Enhanced network. I updated from firmware 1.06 to 1.11 with no problems... Thanks!
  11. What is the version of Firmware you need to run a Pixie 16 daisy chained with 3 Gen 3 controllers? Right now only my pixie 16 is working, no regular controllers are running the other lights. Thanks!
  12. Thanks for the replies. Very weird. I just clicked on the exe files in the Lightorama folder on the C drive. I right clicked the Sequencer exe file and ran as administrator. It still wanted to go through all the setup junk. After it quit I clicked cancel and then it opened up! Anyway, it seems to be working. I can even save sequences.
  13. Wondering about installing the software on a Windows 7 computer. I have the admin login and privileges, but I'm wondering if there's a trick to make it work when you're NOT logged in as an admin? I want it to work while logged in as a normal user. The program installed with no problem when logged in as an admin and works fine. I also see the Control Panel icon on the desktop when logged in a normal user, but when I click on it, it wants to go the the installation procedure again. Then it stops saying you need to be an admin. I have many other programs that had to be installed as an a
  14. Hey everyone. Not too worried about making a Pixel Tree work before Christmas but I finally have some time to mess with the new software. I have MANY old sequences done for S3 that I'd like to continue using. I do want to ADD a Pixel Tree to those sequences. I can't figure out how to add a Pixel Tree into the grid the same way that it is shown to work in the S5 tutorial video that's on the Lightorama website. Basically this. I have the traditional controllers that control the lights on my house and windows. That stays the same. I just want to ADD a Pixel Tree to the sequence. That
