  1. I rebuilt all of my cables last year using waterproof outdoor rated cable and keystone jacks (rather than crimping ends) and then short jumpers from the keystone to the controller. Made the show run sooo much better. The keystone jacks are easier to put on then crimped ends (IMHO) and can easily be removed/redone/replaced if needed. Here's a video I made of the construction:
  2. I decided to just create my S5 Preview from scratch. Yes, it was a little bit of work but it's made the process to import the sequences go much smoother (plus I was able to clean up some things from my old Viz files).
  3. I think this would be a great feature to have. Something that lets you select one, multiple, or all sequences, and then packages all necessary files for those sequences into something like a zip file that could be unpacked on the other end.
  4. I agree 1000% with Mr. P. I made that same mistake (of buying extension cords) when I first started. Since I've switched to SPT I've now got a ton of cords that I don't use anymore, take up a bunch of storage space, and are heavy.
  5. Depending on your soldering skills, an opto coupler is only slightly harder to replace than a triac. Open a ticket with the help desk and they will usually send you a couple for free.
  6. Thanks both Phil and Aubrey! The curtain effect worked perfectly for what I wanted.
  7. Hi All, I'm in the process of converting all of my sequences to S5. I'm also replacing my current leaping arches with new pixel based leaping arches so at the same time I'm converting my sequences to S5, I'm also changing the leaping arch sequencing to utilize motion effects. However, I've got one effect that I can't seem to replicate as a Motion Effect. So the old leaping arches were divided into 4 segments per arch utilizing dumb RGB. So they looked something like this: A1S2 A1S3 A2S2 A2S3 A1S1 A1S4 A2S1 A2S4 ....... I was then able to program an effect across the arches where I was able to fade up and hold the channel on. So A1S1 would fade up and then hold on for the rest of the effect. A beat later A1S2 would fade up and hold on for the rest of the effect. Etc, etc, until all segments had faded up and were on. It looks something like this in the sequencer So at the end of the effect the entire arch was turned on. I've been trying to replicate this using the single block motion effect but haven't had any luck. I've tried turning the head/body/tail sliders all to 100 (in various combinations) but the single block effect always sweeps the pixels off at the end. I can't find a way to keep all of the pixels turned on at the end of the single block effect so that both arches are still lit up. Thoughts/suggestions on how I can do this? Thank you in advance!
  8. So the fact that you can run a successful ping shows that you can get an end-to-end connection. If you can connect to the controllers via your Tablet then it's a security setting in either your desktop/laptop and/or your router. It sounds like a port block issue to me. I would look for a security setting that's blocking port 80 and/or port 443. It wouldn't surprise me if this was on the router and tied specifically to the wired connections.
  9. Right now all of my cables are buried under a couple feet of snow & ice, so I think it will be awhile before I can bring anything in.
  10. Well, I finally managed to do something that I've tried to do every year but failed. This year I managed to get updated video of every song that I've got in both my Holiday and Post-Holiday rotations. Here are all of my Non-Holiday Songs: 30 Hit Songs from 2007 - 2014 Adventure Of a Lifetime Bugle Breaks Cups Don't Stop The Music DrumBone Get On the Good Foot Lily Was Here Love On Top Moves Like Jagger Push It Shake It Off So Yo Telephone Toner TV Song

  12. I replaced all of my data cables this year with waterproof, direct burial cat 5. It's made a world of difference and I expect that they will last longer than standard cat 5. Here's a link to a video I made about the process:
  13. That is a great idea. I will have to incorporate that for next year (if I remember 😊)
