  1. Just to add closure to my topic - My pixel tree started freezing more every night it seemed like so I opened a ticket with LOR and after giving them all of the details they decided the Pixie8 controller had an issue. They sent me another controller and I have had zero issues since installing it!

    I wonder if it is Windows USB port power management.  In the device manager: right click the USB Hub ( mainly the ones used by LOR): Properties: If it has a Power Management Tab, Go there: remove the tick Allow...

    Well that didn't solve the issue unfortunately, thank you for the suggestion though!

    I will check that when I get home, thank you!

  4. I've got a 16x25 pixie tree that keeps freezing during my show. I originally had it on the same network as my other 48 channels but now I have it on its own network with the HS 485 connector and it is still doing it. When it happens, the red light in the pixie8 controller goes out completely. Sometimes it lasts all night and sometimes for only a song or two. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

  5. So just to update - my show is fully functioning now. The issues I was having and the solution were as follows...

    1. I originally downloaded the Motionpak sequence and tried to merge them into the base sequence before I upgraded to the Pro license. (For the pixel tree, the pro license is required and LOR specifically states that but I missed it) To fix this I had to delete the motionpaks and the merged sequences from the LOR folder and download them again, then merge them in LOR Hub again, and BAM they worked great! For reference, if the pixel tree is not showing up in the visualizer in sequencer when you play your show there, the command is not being sent to the controller.

    2. I changed my network speed to 500k enhanced. I am currently running the full show at those settings with the old black USB to 485 converter (Purchased in 2014) but the pixel tree does seem to lag slightly. Ive got the red HS converter on its way and that should fix that!

     

    Hopefully this helps someone else in the same situation in the future!

  6. I used the motionpacks from LOR, merged them with the base sequence but the pixie tree isnt showing up on the preview inside of the sequencer when I play it. The tree is not playing outside either but Ive got a HS USB to 485 converter on order - Im just beginning to wonder if it will play at all if I cannot get it to play in the sequencer? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Thank you everybody for the advice. After piecing together all of the above posts, I was able to get them all working together. All of my equipment is running on the 57.6K (with the black converter) and the enhanced network setting enabled. I had to update the firmware of the gen 3 controllers from .9 to .11. Now I can move forward with the sequencing and setup the tree for the first time...I'm so excited. 

    Good deal glad that was all it was! I didn’t think the pixie8 would run on a 57.6k enhanced network. I’ll try that also!
