  1. Yep, this works. I have enough PVC to make it work.
  2. Please do. I am think this would be a permanent thing.
  3. I purchased the flood light package recently. Has anone found stakes, or some type of mounting device I can get these off the ground?
  4. I worked with the helpdesk, and I was able to resolve the minor difficulties in configuration. I do believe one Pixcon board I received recently has "issues." I did replace that one with a Pixie 16, and it works fine. I will test that one after I complete my set-up.
  5. Not sure either. Outputs from controller work fine in test. SO, it's between the preview configuration and the channel config. Everything looks fine. I'll give this one more day, then switching out the Pixcon boards for my Pixie 16 back-ups. They work fine.
  6. Did all that. All channels work properly, except for two. One the first 50 pixels won't light up. The second, the last 50. No overlap. All lights working in test.
  7. I was able to get everything running, but have a couple of questions: 1. I have one channel that doesn't work in sequencer, but does work in network config test. Everything looks ok (Preview+ same type config in seq). Is this just a delet and re-create to work? 2. One channel 2nd string does not light up. Same config as rest of those similar items. The second string is chained to first. Changed out that set of strings a few times, no luck. Ideas?
  8. Control lights - On, props in Preview, control panel on, blue. But, if I recall, I never needed the control panel on, when testing, prior to putting controllers outside. The Pixcon is showing data connection, but there is no data transfer. It has to do with a network setting, but network config does show the unit, and can test to it. And....I was writing to say it didn't work, but ran a sequence, and it did. The control panel light was red, I loaded a show, viola! I seem to recall, that in the past, I could test, prior to putting outside, without control panel active (blue) show running. Maybe Pixcon is different?
  9. So...completed the following: Added router, connected Pixcon 16. In network settings unit showed up fine. Configured Universes with the same IP. When I test the Pixcon in network preferences, the lights work fine in the test tab. Lights solid red/green on board. I can't figure out why the lighting isn't working, when running a sequence. I did a test seq, with one item, Universe 1, start 1, end 300. Made sure Universe 1 was the start in network settings. Control lights on. So far, no go. Any ideas?
  10. Adding/appending views seems to be the best then...
  11. I purchased a XLights sequence(Magical Light Sequences), and was able to convert it to LOR. The converted sequence has many lines of blank rows, he had a huge layout. My question is, is there a way to remove those blank lines. I did add a view, and appended the listing I wanted, but wondering if there was a quick way to remove blanks?
  12. Ha, yeah the Chief Financial Officer (wife) won't approve those! Won't send via message. Fine with here, metallus2000@yahoo.com
  13. I got hooked on this guy's shows. They are XLights, but I was able to import into LOR. Has some awesome head lights on the roof. Lost some of the effects, which I am trying to recreate with DMX devices. Looking for a good "Spinner." Enter Sandman - Metallica (EZ Import) – Magical Light Shows LLC
  14. Does anyone have a sequence they developed for DMX that I can see to get an idea of how to program? I don't need audio, just want to view the set-up. New to DMX... I will not use the sequence for profit, or sell. Just looking to figure out how to program.
  15. Oh, I think we can all relate to that 👍
  16. Thanks for the response everyone. Last year I bought 25 5v 50 count strings on clearance. I have 10 left that are working. I will play with cutting them/patching after the season. It does seems as if QC went out the Covid window... And JR :-) "The only way to prevent this would be to give up the hobby lights will fail no matter what we do." Ain't happening....!
  17. Random occurrence. Light show has been running for a month, no issues. Last few days, some of the lights stay on, could be several in one string, or one channel all lights stay on from a previous sequence. No sequences are going all the way to the end...I have 3 each 16 Pixie controllers, and 6 each CCB 5v controllers. Reset offending controllers. I rebooted computer and now re-doing hardware utility. I have a brand new 12v strand of 100 bulbs, whereas one bulb stays on red, all the time. Has anyone run across this issue/fix? or...perhaps the real question should be, why does this happen, and how do I prevent it?
  18. Does anyone have Tchaikovsky's March of the Toy Soldiers? Email me@ metallus2000@yahoo.com I agree to not sell or share this sequence with anyone. This request will be used for my private, personal use on my show only. I also understand the mere fact of making changes to the borrowed sequence and pasting it in to my sequence does not make it mine to share.
  19. https://fb.watch/2ilUjwW9es/ next year though...
  20. I would like a copy, sent to: metallus2000@yahoo.com "I agree to not sell or share this sequence with anyone. This request will be used for my private, personal use on my show only.

  21. I am doing White Christmas, by Bing Crosby. Nothing dramatic, just twinkling the lights. I want the light to be warm white for this particular sequence, not all of them. Where do I change those settings? Can I?
