  1. Okay. I think I found it, thanks to these suggestions... Opening the configuration XML file with notepad, the channel that is misbehaving is incorrectly classified as 'deviceTyle="BSoft Digital IO"', whereas all the other channels are 'deviceTyle="LOR"'. Not sure how that happened, and - interestingly - the Animation display in the Sequence Editor doesn't give me any indication that the channel is of a different type. I'll update the config file and try that!
  2. Greetings, All! And happy holidays! Last year was my first experience with LOR. I purchased a CTB16PC controller unit and the Advanced software suite, and generated a very nice show connecting to just LED light strings. Things went so well that I purchased three additional CTB16PC controllers during the spring clearance sale, and this year, I've started expanding my display incrementally, adding one of the new controllers to the mix. However, in testing the display last night, I found something odd... My older controller (ID: 1) is responding to light commands on one channel that
  3. Is there an easy way to clear a saved schedule completely? Or, do I have to delete each show manually? The reason I ask... I'm having an inexplicable issue with the scheduler this week. I'm trying to set-up a schedule where one show is active through Thursday morning (Thanksgving), then another show beginning Thursday night. I've tried both the calendar and the weekly scheduler options, but eventually, I run into a situation where - when I'm trying to add a show, the scheduler refuses to add the show because "The end time conflicts with another show", even though there is nothing sched
  4. Thanks to both Daniel and Orville for their inputs, and yes... the idea of leaving the show run continuously from start to finish has occurred to me. As I mentioned in an earlier message in this thread, my home is located on a fairly quiet cul-de-sac. We don't generally get a lot of traffic through the community, and even less on my street. We do, of course, get the occasional "drive-by" looking at lights in the neighborhood, and that traffic flow tends to increase as we get closer to the holiday. Also, my home has been - for several years now - the only one on the street (and probably in
  5. Or, maybe it's as easy as unchecking the "Turned used lights off at the end of each sequence" option on the interactive group?... If the behavior of that option is to turn everything back on after the last sequence in the goup plays, that would provide the static display I'm looking for. Guess I'll try it and see...
  6. Thanks to everyone for your inputs on this topic, and please accept my apologies if the questions I'm asking are in the documentation somewhere... there's just so much stuff here that some of the subtleties are difficult to find. Okay, tangential question: Is there a way to have a LOR program start with all channels on (i.e. everything lit), then override and run one pass through the interactive program when an input is received from an external input PUP (a visitor presses the big red "Start" button), then go back to the default "everything on" mode after the interactive program completes?
  7. Thanks, Don! I missed that document during my online searches yesterday. There were two things about the Simple Show Builder that I found confusing yesterday when I was playing around with it, trying to figure this out on my own. The first was a mismatch in the options available on the SSB opening screen, where you select where the show will be played from, and the hardware I got with my STC package. The show director that shipped with my package is a "uMP3G3", and the only option on that configuration screen that even remotely resembled it is labeled "mDC-MP3" - which, when shown out of
  8. Greetings fellow light fanatics! I'm new to the LOR family, having just made the plunge last month. I bought the ShowTime Central package, which gives me access to the basic-plus version with SuperStar Demo, thinking that this gives me everything I need to get started. I also splurged and bought the Plug-N-Show pre-programmed SD card, in case I ran out of time and didn't get to build my own sequences. I shouldn't have worried... In less than two weeks, I've got three sequences completed that will provide an awesome 10 minute show using just the dumb LED light strings that I've been coll
