  1. It's either going to be a few days before Thanksgiving or a few days after. Depending on when I get finished with setup. Normally it's Thanksgiving night for me for my start date.
  2. Me I would be cautious using a larger antenna on a part 15 fm transmitter. With the risk of transmitting further than you should. Wouldn't want a visit from the Friendly candy company (FCC). I do like K6CCC's plans though for the antenna, might have to use a modified version of that for ham radio.
  3. Shocking that FedEx would do something like that.... ๐Ÿ™„ I had shipments from fedex already go on cross country vacations, where it would arrive in my state go to the local hub for my area then all of a sudden leave my state and travel a few states away to return back to my state. This happened to me on a numerous of occasions. The response from fedex was "I don't know why your package did that".
  4. If you swap ports with the pixel string and the problem stays with the sting then itโ€™s a bad string. im going though the same thing
  5. Yeah I still can't see any of that on my end even under the closed ticket side.
  6. I'm working with mike sent him a PM and he had me submit a new one. That ticket number in question is indeed missing. I can't see it when I log onto the helpdesk page, only ticket there was the one I submitted last month which was solved. And nothing is in the email folders. There was a second ticket that I told them to cancel because I put the wrong address in there for email (accidently mixed my work and personal address together work email for the first half of the address but accidently got the server part wrong which is an address I don't have access to) which i corrected in the 719009 ticket I mentioned to cancel the other one out unless someone deleted the wrong ticket.
  7. Is there something going on with the help desk because my question about my 9 failed pixel strings I got from LOR disappeared it was help desk ticket #719009 I submitted it last night it was in my helpdesk account last night and today it's gone. no replies in my email or anything.
  8. This is a feature request (Unless this can already be done a different way and I'm missing something) On pixel based props it would be nice if you could access the channel level but have it automatically in both vertical and horizontal groups instead of being given a billion channels and you have to move then group them yourself. Example a 32 "branch" mega tree it would pre group each "branch" so you would end up with 32 groups. in case you wanted to convert over old effects from a non pixel tree to a new one. Or even have an effect where you just want to hit individual branches like on beats or instrumental notes in a song. instead of having to do it through the effects editor and have to move the line back and forth each time. To create the groups I know it can be done manually by moving things around but it's a long task to do. Another example would be for a matrix based prop Like a pixel tunnel where it would automatically give you both a horizontal and vertical set of channel groups once again if you needed an effect where only one line would turn on at a point in time. And since it's already setup that when a group is closed and you put an effect in it on the grid it automatically copies it to the other members within that group. could this be an added feature in the future or is there a way to get around this easier?
  9. The general rule of thumb is if you need brown for a Christmas light project use Amber. Just like blue is normally used in place of black. I'm not sure if anyone sells Amber rope light but that might be a start in the right direction.
  10. Report ID: TC 73 OS: Windows 10 (1803) Software: Sequencer Version: 5.3.6 Issue: If you have the playback window running on a second monitor, close the sequencer then remove the 2nd monitor. When you reopen Sequencer this time (without 2nd monitor installed) and try to click on the playback window button it does nothing and the playback window seems to fail to appear anywhere. Was able to get the playback window to come back after attaching the 2nd monitor back again.
  11. I got into the hobby around the end of 2017, different parts of the hobby just amazes me. Did you get the chance to get any of the SSTV images from the ISS in the past few days? de AB3WX
  12. This kind of question comes up every once in awhile, but new people come in and others hobbies change. So I'm curious other than the madness we do that's called computerized lighting. What other Hobbies are you involved in? For me it would be Ham Radio, which has sparked an additional interest in building/repairing electronic circuits.
  13. Yes depending on what equipment you're working on and what you're trying to check/test. Sometimes it needs to be done while energized. You just have to follow NFPA70E safety guidelines, and only work energized if necessary.
  14. I found that gem from a ham radio group, and sadly I do know people that will partake in #5 on that list.
  15. Something I found awhile ago from another group of another hobby. Ten Commandments of Electrical Safety (1) Beware of the lightning that lurks in an undischarged capacitor lest it cause thee to be bounced upon thy backside in a most ungainly manner. (2) Cause thou the switch that supplies large quantities of juice to be opened and thusly tagged, so thy days may be long on this earthly vale of tears. (3) Prove to thyself that all circuits that radiateth and upon which thou worketh are grounded lest they lift thee to high-frequency potential and cause thee to radiate also. (4) Take care thou useth the proper method when thou taketh the measure of high-voltage circuits so that thou doth not incinerate both thee and the meter, for verily though thou hast no account number and canst be easily replaced, the meter doth have one and as a consequence bringeth much woe upon the supply department. (5)Tarry thee not amongst those who engage in intentional shocks for they are surely non-believers and are not long for this world. (6) Take care thou tampereth not with interlocks and safety devices, for this incureth the wrath of thy seniors and bringeth the fury of the safety officer down upon thy head and shoulders. (7) Work thee not on energized equipment, for if thou doeth, thy mates will surely be buying lunch without thee and thy space at the table will be filled by another. (8) Verily, verily I say unto thee, never service high-voltage equipment alone, for electric cooking is a slothful process, and thou might sizzle in thy own fat for hours on end before thy Maker sees fit to end thy misery and drag thee into His fold. (9) Trifle thee not with radioactive tubes and substances lest thou commence to glow in the dark like a lightning bug. (10) Commit thee to memory the works of the prophets, which are written in the instruction books, which giveth the straight info and which consoleth thee, and thou cannot make mistakes.
  16. Would LOR consider adding round pixels packages to the sale as well? I really need a 16x100 pixel set 12v with pixcon but would prefer it to be round pixels instead of the square.
  17. Sorry to hear that happened to you. Do you leave lighting on overnight or is your yard pitch black overnight? Typically lighting even spot lights help a little (doesn't stop it completely) with keeping hoodlums off your property.
  18. D1 is a valid ID number, While not efficient to have that many id numbers in a network the highest controller ID you can set to a controller is F0 which is 240 controllers.
  19. If this is listed somewhere I can't seem to find it. Is it possible to do an motion effect that is shared among multiple props. For example if you wanted to do a pin wheel can it be done where it spreads it across the entire visualizer (multiple props) instead just one individual prop.
  20. Program: Verifier Version: 5.2.2 OS; Windows 10 Issue: When running the verifier you will get about 18 errors complaining about missing lor program files. Most if not all of them seem to be file names from an older version of Light O Rama since S5 changed the main program name to Sequencer and also the fact that the pixel editor exe doesn't exist anymore.
  21. I'll be damned, somehow I missed it. And it's exactly what I was hoping for. Thanks
  22. Could you add in a better way to deleting archived channels. If you have a bunch of archived channels in a sequence that you want to get rid of it's a pain to do it one by one. Could you add a box where you could put a check mark to each archived channel you want to delete and do them all at once. Or like in S4 and I think s3 you could group them together and then delete the whole group as one.
  23. This is what I use. Vertical Cable Cat5e, 350 Mhz, UTP, UV Jacket, Outdoor, CMX, 1000ft, Black, Bulk Ethernet Cable https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005EZ0HH2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_6nOPBbQT492XA
