  1. Hi All ! 👋 Happy Summer, I hope everyone has been staying safe and healthy! I have 2 16 channel (CTB16PC) units that I run my show on. I use just sting lights LEDs. This year I wanted to add some pixels, maybe just for my jumping arches. Can you tell me exactly what controller I would need to buy and if there is a special adapter I have to get for the Pixel controller to run with my regular light controllers? I have tried to find videos about how to do this, but all i find are either just ones about sting lights (LEDs) or ones just about Pixels. Is it possible to run both regular lights and RBGs lights? Its early in the year, so I am hoping someone has a bit of time to help me out thank you! 😁
  2. When I use SuperStar to do an instant sequence, it looks fine on my visualizer, but when i export to sequence editor it isnt the same. The lights will blink for a fraction of a second, and not in the same way the did in superstar. They blink way too fast after exporting. What am I doing wrong? I am using S4. Thanks for your help!
  3. I took out the singing face, it just gave me too many problems. So i have 12 or 13 sequences done for Christmas. They are for 32 channel regular lights. I am looking to share and swap. My show has 2 jumping arches that uses 8 channels, but you can use the sequences even if you dont have arches. My lineup isnt typical, Songs are Gangman Style, sexy and I know it, what the fox says, I want a hippo for Christmas, all i want for Christmas is you, dueling jingle bells, another one bites the dust, Mr Grinch, Boogie Woogie Christmas, wizards in winter, fireball, christmas cannon, the 12 pains of christmas, frosty, i like to move it, and a couple more. Willing to trade some of yours for some of mine? And if your New, I will share too. send me a private message and I will send you my email address so we can swap, or send me your address if your new and just need some sequences to get you going.
  4. Hi All! I hope everyone is staying safe during this crazy time. I have 2 16 channel controllers that I used with regular LED light strings. I want to get into doing the pixel lights, but I have no idea where to start or even if I need different controllers. If I wanted to ad a spiral tree to my display and use the pixel lights, what would I need to do, aside from buying the pixel light ribbons? Do I need a different type of controller? I also have 1 signing face, which made my life a total and complete nightmare last xmas, I ended up having to purchase sequences for the face, which wasn't the same songs I had already made sequences for, so .. Nightmare every single night and lost about 30 days of lights on time. I am really hoping that someone will take me under their wing and help me learn how to do this better. I have the S5 software, but I don't like it, so I use the S4 software. I used the S5 software on a different computer only for the signing face. I need help from step 1 and someone to basically hold my hand through it all. Maybe I can work side by side with someone as they are working on their own display so that person wont get behind on their own project.
  5. I didn't realize that LOR sold different kinds of 16 channel light controllers.
  6. can someone do a remote session with me? This is just crazy that I cannot get up and running
  7. I cannot set the second controller as #2. It will not detect it as a unit, only sees it when connected to box 1, but runs each channel from both boxes as the same channel
  8. THANKS, more investigation, I have 2 controllers, and for some reason it is being read as 1 single unit. The lights are coming on from box 2 and triggering the same channel on both boxes. Example, box 2 channel 6 is a ground light, and on box 1 channel 6 its part of my arch. So what ever I have on box 2 channel 6 is over powering box 1 channel6 and turning on as sequenced for box 2. hardware utility says found 1 unit. but when I test the lights in utility, they cycle through correctly. what am I doing wrong?
  9. I guess I should have updated the status on this issue. I was never able to fix it. I had to move to a different computer, now I have completely different issues. I posted looking for help under the heading "nothing is working correctly"
  10. My channels are not playing the sequences in the correct order. I have unplugged them and retraced them twice, I know they are plugged into the right channel. When I run the hardware test, it runs through each channel correctly (the right light lights up when its supposed to) but when I run the sequence, its not even close to being the right order. I have even just set up a loop to have my arches jump, just to see if something is wrong with the sequence, but when I run the sequence in animation mode (no music) nothing comes on ( I added only the jumping arches to the sequence). when I copied and pasted the sequence into other channels, it worked but I don't know how it worked, because it was not how I had the channels set. However, it does play the face channels correctly, but that's al that plays in the correct order. anyone have any ideas? I have not been able to run a single show yet.
  11. ok you were right, reinstalling changed nothing. Its telling me that "shows cannot be enabled because the comm port is already open. If the utility hardware is running, shut it down then enable shows." Well, as far as I can see, Utility Hardware is NOT running anywhere. My control panel indicator light is BLUE, the enable schedule tab is greyed out (cannot click it). I click on "disable shows immediately" and nothing happens. LightORama status says "connected to COMM Listener" . When I run network config, it now looks way different then before I reinstalled. I tried to add the picture here but it says I cant. I will post picture in the next post below.
  12. I am trying to tell you that I have NOTHING running. I am not running the utility or anything else, the only thing that is on is the LOR control panel and that Comm port listener that keeps giving me the errors I posted above I am going to try to reinstall
  13. My light bulb is red, and I cannot enable schedule, its greyed out (not clickable) and I get this error . see screen shots below
