  1. If you only have a 16 channel controller, you have a LOT of extra stuff in there. AC controllers use 1 circuit (channel) per plug, so the Unit 01 Circuit 17 is an issue. All of that is configured in the Design tab.
  2. Assume that your show has Jingle Bells, Winter Wonderland, Let it Snow running. If you open and edit Frosty the Snowman, nothing happens. If you open and edit one of the songs in the show, it might (or might not) reread the file. (Someone jump in here. It's been too long.) If you want to add Frosty to the show while it's running, it (should) restart. (Someone correct me on the finer details, I'm mush this time of year.)
  3. If you know what you are doing, and you really understand what VLAN's are ... so long as the overall traffic from your DMX doesn't overload the capacity of the router, you'd be okay. (In my opinion.)
  4. 1. Use an external place to host your images. Link to the image here. 2. You say you downloaded S4, but your profile says S5? Are these S4 files you are loading in S4?
  5. Check out these two links. They will give you ideas. http://www.lorfaq.com/show-scheduling-example-1/ http://www.lorfaq.com/show-scheduling-example-2/ Keep in mind, the software will STOP an animation sequence at the end of a show. It will CONTINUE a musical sequence. There are those who have the opinion that you will not want to do this, and just let the songs play through. Your call though.
  6. I've heard nothing of a crossover being needed for this device. Don't try it. I was able to connect to one with my laptop. Just make sure you have your local computer set to talk to the PixieLink.
  7. I know, I know, some of you want to stay on Windows 10. But those who want to move to Windows 11, and you are unable to do so, then see this article. It contains a MS Approved registry hack to bypass some of the requirements. https://www.theverge.com/22715331/how-to-install-windows-11-unsupported-cpu-intel-amd-registry-regedit
  8. Mini director has only 1 network. If your controllers are all new (last 7-8 years) then they should all be able to run on the same network/director. If you have very old, Gen 1 16 channel controllers, and are using new CCR's, then you would have to get a N2G4 or N4G4 director.
  9. Is it assigned to UnitID 01? Then yes, it will do the same thing.
  10. What types of controllers? How are you connecting the ELL to the computer?
  11. True. That said, I was assuming that someone just trying to expand this years show wasn't going to try and run multiple networks. :)
  12. Yes. The controllers are listening and hear everything that is sent to them. They ignore information that's not assigned to them. So if you have two #3's connected they both respond to instructions sent to UnitID 03.
  13. You are making sense. However, with that musical sequence playing, it would run past time. (And I had this written up last night, but didn't hit enter.)
  14. Last time I checked, the Calendar (Schedule Editor) and Show Editor do NOT have overlapping configurable options. See if you can play the music file outside of LOR. The LOR software uses Windows software to play the file. If a song isn't working in the software, then it's highly possible it won't work in the regular media player as well.
  15. Blind. It's all on, all white channels.
  16. Look for LORPost.exe in your Light-O-Rama Program Files directory. Run that, and change the location from there. If LORPost can find the sequences/audio, it will copy them to the new location. If it can't find them, you will have to copy them over manually.
  17. The store will give you a good idea as to the monetary costs. The time costs, on the other hand, are going to be different for everyone. Be sure to look at LOR's site for information on getting started.
  18. I don't have experience with WowLights. However, I'd be surprised if they were selling you blank sequences.
  19. And this is what it should look like. https://share.donteague.com/v/XtXT6qJjszCk5REsW3DamEWg9 (Link valid for 4 days.)
  20. These two still apply. http://www.lorfaq.com/show-scheduling-example-1/ http://www.lorfaq.com/show-scheduling-example-2/ You will learn a lot about scheduling from there. Background is for Animation sequences, only. https://www1.lightorama.com/downloads/5.6.6/help/show_editor.htm https://www1.lightorama.com/downloads/5.6.6/help/show_editor.htm#background
  21. They'd have to add in all of the error checking that's in the Preview section. Duplicate ID's, Channels, etc. I have no idea how coding works, but I'd suspect that add some overhead to the overall code. If you've done your planning and configuration correctly in the Preview, then there wouldn't be a need to correct them later.
  22. You didn't answer my other question. Did it ask you to import the preview? The link I sent is a fully functional, 16 channel "all on" sequence. When you load it on to your computer, you should have 16 channels, all on, with 16 Stars in the Preview window. It should automatically import the Preview, since you wouldn't have it on your machine. If that sequence doesn't work for you, then you either have something seriously wrong with your computer, or user error.
  23. If you don't have all 4 configured in the sequence, then there is no way the Director is going to use all 4. The HUB reads the sequences and see what ports it should enable from there.
  24. @Brettlws - The easiest thing to do would be to duplicate the controller numbers on the AC controllers and let those do the same as your current controllers. If you purchased a PixCon, I hope you purchased lights and power supply/enclosure for it. Otherwise, it won't be of any good with AC LED lighting.
