  1. I use dimming curve for my Pixie controllers and set the intensity on my Pixcon16s. 30%
  2. LOR replaced my director and all is good. May have not been temperature related at all. Glad show is running now.
  3. My temperature data logger shows a peak of 118 degrees F. in control box. I assume that is excessive. I plan to relocate components to larger box with vent and out of sun.
  4. I am going to relocate all components to a large vented bud box and locate out of the direct sunlight. I currently have temperature datalogger logging temperatures every 2 minutes (placed this inside the original closed box). I will look at temp data today to see how hot the current box got.
  5. The director is powered by a small 12vdc 500ma supply as cannot get power from Pixie8. So I have a director, main power supply for pixie8, small plug in power supply for director and Pixie8 in a small box in direct sunlight. I will place a temperature data logger in the box and monitor. Thanks.
  6. An update. Issue may be temperature as the show did run early in the morning correctly. Anyone know the operating temperature range for a director? I have the director/12v power supply and pixie8 all in a small enclosure directly in the sun. Thanks
  7. Have a N2-G4-MP3 director running just a pixie8. Used LOR Hub v5.6.0pro to create sd card. Only running one animation show and is set to run whenever show director has power (so, no schedule). I have tired 2 different kingston sd cards (one from last years show and the other one that came with director). Upon power up, director remain in "init" state. It had ran prior, but after an hour just froze up. Now, I cannot get anything to run. The director is powered off a 12vdc power supply. I am running only one network (reg, 112K, lor/elor). Thanks
  8. Location dictates no PC. Must use director. Downtown outdoor gazebo. Can I run a laptop with no issues in central Illinois December/January temperatures?
  9. Currently running S5 v5.6.0 Too late in season to update to latest version?
  10. https://www.holidaycoro.com/Coro-Mini-Tree-p/16.htm Boscoyo may also have some that work with led mini lights.
  11. I have ran a 2 port director for years and like the ability to just dump shows on an SD card and let em run. No computer/PC needed. Last year I upgraded to a 4 port director as many extra pixels were added. However, as I add pixels, I will need to add additional 4 port directors and you will loose some ports doing this.
  12. Perfect. Thanks much. Just make sure red high speed adapters are used. Correct?
  13. How do you add 4 networks if pc only has 3 com ports?
  14. Thanks JR. So i guess 170 pixels is the max. Does it even allow you to set it for 200?
  15. I ran 2500 pixels per network last year using a g3-mp3.
  16. page 5 of lor pixie user manual 3/9/2020 v1.06 states the maximum is 200.
  17. What is the maximum amount of pixels I can place on a LOR high speed red network adapter running from PC?
  18. Just looked at recent documentation and it states 200 pixels per port
  19. Also, a Pixie16 can do 200 pixels per channel if running at 50% intensity correct? So why not 2 (100) strands per pixie port? Only need 18 ports for 36 strands
  20. I have a project to add a 360 degree pixel tree with 36 strips of 100 pixels each strand. The plan is to use a couple Pixie16s and each channel on the Pixie will control 150 pixels. So I have 1st strip starting a bottom going up 100 pixels, then next 2nd strip going down 50 pixels (1/2 length). The next channel, 50 pixels(remaining 1/2 length) down the 2nd strip, then 100 pixels up on 3rd strip. Repeat for remaining strips. How is this configured in S5 preview/prop configuration when you have the above wiring? Every other strip consists of a split channel. Please advise. Thanks
  21. JR how are you able to attach screen capture for others to view? LOR limits size of file. Please advise as I would like to post a sequence from my new show S5 screen capture. Thanks
  22. Jaynee, Just make a 2x2 wood frame and mount faces to that. Please PM me and I will send pics of my setup. Thanks
