  1. LOR support also responded and based on their response I guess this might just remain a mystery A Light-O-Rama help desk staff member has replied to your request, #6202860 with the following response: Those errors are being generated by Windows Media Player -- the LOR software is just the messenger in this case. There is no known issue with the Show Player. It is hard to say anything more than that without seeing the actual sequences and media files.
  2. I tried the show on demand and it worked fine. I'm now running the actual show after recompressing the show and disable/enable the LOR control panel and will let it cycle through the 30 minute cycle a few times and then check the logs. It was interesting that when on ran the 2 sequences on demand it "Created playback file because it was out of date by 4.3 days" and "Created playback file because it was out of date by 5.1 days" I guess it must recreate the payback files if the a a certain unknown date old.... LOR support also responded and based on their response I guess this might just remain a mystery
  3. JR, Yes, it was quite a bit of trial and error but last year or the year before I was able to make sure that windows defender doesn't start up. Also, if that was the issue then I would expect it to effect "random" sequences and not the same exact ones time and time again (after they had been working). This afternoon I am going to go back and remove the playback files if they exist and run the show and let it generate them again. I'm pretty sure that will "fix" it but it won't explain why it started to error in the first place and therefore it may start happening again. Kyle
  4. Matt, Is the computer connected to the Internet? No, it is in airplane mode Is it sync'ing to cloud storage (e.g. Dropbox)? No Is Microsoft OneDrive enabled? No What AntiVirus software are you using? None I know where you are going with those questions but it seems to be just those sequences. They played early on in the night but then just those 2 consistently errored. Kyle
  5. I went ahead and opened a support ticket in case there is a bug. Light-O-Rama Help Desk Ticket Opened [#6202860]
  6. LOR 5.5.16 Pro I run a 30 minutes show that keeps cycling back through the songs so if a 1 minute sequence doesn't run then each show is off it's 30 minute cycle by 1 more minute every half hour. That means the "10:00" show ends up starting early at 9:51. I have 1 small sequence that ran in the first 30 minute show and then stopped running with an error in the second 30 minutes show followed by a second sequence that also stopped working in the 3rd show. Both continued to error the rest of the night. 2 lightly different Errors: 6:50 PM: ERROR WITH SEQUENCE (Error playing media file: Windows Media Player cannot find the file. If you are tryingto play, bu (missing in screenshot) leted.) Musical: C:\LOR\LORInternal\Playback\L\FinalVersions\FinalVersions2020 FBCHS\Preshow_FBCHS_010_Minutes_WithVideo_FINAL.000E.112.play.lms.lcs (Missing from screenshot) :59 PM: ERROR WITH SEQUENCE (Error playing media file: Windows Media Player encountered a problem playing the file.) Musical: C:\LOR\LORInternal\Playback\L\FinalVersions\FinalVersions2020 FBCHS\Light Saber Extended_025minutes_FBCHS_Final.000E.112.play.lms.lcs Anyone have any idea why these would play all week and at the start of the show and then just stop working with 2 slightly different errors? The show is playing away from my house so I don't feel like driving back out there later tonight but I'll try and see if I can get them to recreate the playback files tomorrow.

  8. I have a corroded RJ45 connection that I cam trying to change out with a new one. I can't figure out the "striped" wire order because the stripes are hard to see. Any idea what the wire layout is on those? I can see: Yellow stripe Yellow stripe of some kind Green stripe of some kind Blue stripe of some kind Brown
  9. A couple of years ago I added my first Pixie II running LOR bullet pixels. I recall struggling to set them up so that they worked and I don't recall exactly how I managed to get them working. I can tell that they are setup in S5 using Unit 20 for 1 side of the controller and 21 for the other side (22 and 23 for the other controller). When setting up my new Pixie II controllers with ribbons to replace my old CCR ribbons I am having trouble getting them setup and working so that they work as LOR describes "Appears as 2 originall CCRs to the software. Existing CCR sequences can be used." I added them to S5 with Unit ID 50 and 51 for one of the Pixie II controllers just like the other Pixie II controllers that I had setup. When I use the HU to assign the ID I can only seem to set the unit to 50 and then when I try to run the lights out of S5 nothing happens. Anyone have any thoughts? Also in the HU under Cosmic Color/Pixie Config there is a Pixel Type which is currently set to WS2811 but I don't know if that is correct or what any of the other Pixel Types mean.
  10. Me neither!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Arghhhhh
  11. LOR states "5.3.12 Contains critical bug fixes and should be installed immediately if you are using any previous 5.3.x release" I am currently running 5.3.10 and I a not having any issues. I don't normally go against their advice; however, it sounds like even though they say it should be installed immediately I'd better just leave well enough alone.
  12. I'd love to take a look at the file if you would be willing to send it to me. Thanks! kwhitaker@datatrac.com
  13. The Greatest Showman looks very cool. Is that Video on the left? If you are willing to share I'd love to take a look. kwhitaker@datatrac.com
  14. I can't seem to find the answers to my questions when searching the forum and the documentation doesn't appear to be updated to apply to S5. I ordered 2 CB100's with 2 sets of 50 CCBs on each when they were recently on clearance. I have never setup or used this device before and I am struggling to get them setup to use in the sequence editor and preview. I am attempting to setup a prop for each controller where each 50 CCB string is an arch and then add a motion effects row. Does anyone have a prop already defined that I could import or can you provide insight on how to set it up in the Preview?
