  1. There's an option in the s5 show editor, under the startup, animation or musical tabs.
  2. I didn't have to change any jumper settings and i'm using a windows 10 laptop with the pixcon. to summarize,, when you run ipconfig, you still get the following? IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : Gateway . . . . . . . . . : and you're sure you've reset the pixcon such that it should now have an ip of if you've confirmed the above, maybe try a different ethernet cable. You computer should be able to communicate/find the pixcon with the above settings.
  3. ok so after i confirm they're gen3 and their firmware is up to date, I can run them on the enhanced lor network along with the pixcon16 controller?
  4. This season was my 1st and i had two cmb24d controllers and two CTB16PC-COMPLETE controllers http://store.lightorama.com/ctascpa.html that were ordered in May 2015. I'm planning for next year and want to add the pixcon16 contoller. If i update the firmware on all controllers and have the pro license of s4, will they all work on the enhanced lor network? So i only need the 1 highspeed usb red dongle (which i already have) and will only use the 1 com port? I've looked at this page http://www1.lightorama.com/network-speeds/ and to me, it looks like all of my controllers will work. I'm lookin
  5. yes, i was using the same lights and swapping them between controllers. Not 1 dumb rgb light string that was moved through each rgb channel but 8 dumb rgb light strings connected to their sister channels when swapping the controllers. this is the mount i'm using http://www.holidaycoro.com/Light-O-Rama-LOR-CMB24D-Mounting-Kit-p/641-kit1.htm inside a cg-1500 enclosure.
  6. So now i believe i'm wrong in thinking the issue is a cheap transformer. The transformer i'm using is this http://www.holidaycoro.com/350w-Dual-Output-Power-Supply-p/49.htm. On that page, scrolling down to the "product features" section, there is a line that says "switching power supply with screw terminal for input and output." Looking at Mike's link above about cheap transformers, he mentions "t he switched supply is going to be even more expensive, but has additional benefits." Does that mean this power supply is switched and therefore the best choice? Or is that meaning something else
  7. ok so i'm assuming transformer=power supply and i feel like my issue is what Mike linked to...a cheap power supply. Does anyone have recommendations of 12v 20+amp regulated power supplies?
  8. this is the power supply i have http://www.holidaycoro.com/350w-Dual-Output-Power-Supply-p/49.htm. I don't believe it's a current limited power supply. How can i create the effect? also, if there's a short circuit, it has to be in pig-tail, light string connection. I have a volt ohm meter. How do i use that to test for short circuits in the pig-tail, light string cable runs? My controllers were under a year old and LOR fixed them with me only paying for shipping to them.
  9. In testing out the 2 new CMB-24D controllers, I’ve done something where I heard a pop and now channel 10 doesn’t work on one controller and channels 10 and 14 no longer work on the other controller. In both instances, I hooked up the cmb-24d controller to a 12v, 350 watts power supply and mounted inside a cg-1500 cableguard. I then wired 4-conductor waterproof extensions to each channel and the + on the controller (http://www.holidaycoro.com/4-Conductor-Waterproof-Extension-5ft-p/725.htm) and wired the other end of the extension to one string of 12v 50 count dumb rgb led string of lights. I
  10. Newbie here planning my first show for Christmas 2015. I'm planning on doing a mix of lor CMB24D and CTB16PC controllers. In relation to the cat5e cable run that come out of the USB485 adapter and to the controllers, does it matter what the order of the controllers are? Do all of the cmb24d's have to come first and then the ctb16pc's (as shown in the controller layout diagram on this page http://www1.lightorama.com/rgb-controllers/)? Or, as long as all of the controllers are lor, it doesn't matter what order they are in (in relation to the cat5e lan cable runs)? Thanks.
