  1. By far our display has had the most traffic since we started in 2008. For the most part, folks view the show from the opposite side of the street. However, there are a few bone heads that plant their car right in front of the house and blocking the folks who are parked across the street. This leads to honking horns. The horns bother us, can't imagine what our wonderful neighbors are thinking. We thought about putting traffic cones in the street right in front of the house. Before buying the cones, I thought I would see what others have done to try keep this from happening.
  2. I appreciate your willingness to help. After I created my post I went and read from other topics and found one talking about network speed. I remembered when I was setting up my pixel tree that I changed my network speed. I am guessing my network speed last year was 57.6K and the Enhanced box was not checked. During the install of my pixel tree I changed to 500K with the Enhanced box checked and that is where I started tonight. After reading that other post, I went back to 57.6K with Enhanced not checked. Currently connected I have 2 units that are CTB16D v4.32 and 1 unit that i
  3. Over the summer I upgraded to version 4.4.4 Pro. I added a pixel tree for my Christmas show, but made no changes to last years Halloween show - all LEDs and no pixels for Halloween. I planned on starting the Halloween show tomorrow night. I finished setting up everything today. I ran HU and all controllers were found and all lights work. Now that it is dark I wanted to run the show once just to be sure everything would be good for tomorrow. I tried to run the Show on Demand. The music plays, but none of the lights are working. I restarted the computer, because sometimes that works for
  4. Tonight I installed version 4.3.24 from version 3.9.0. At the end of the installation there was an information message about old controllers and consuming a lot of overhead. The message provided a place to go if I was using old controllers. When I read the message I was confident I would remember it. However, that is not the case. I wish I would have snapped a screen shot. Anyone know what that message was about and what "older" controllers is it referring to?
  5. I would love a copy of this too. Thank you in advance. Harweger@comcast.net
  6. Moving the sign from one controller to another has solved the problem. Appears I have an issue with the first channel on that one controller.
  7. Thank you for the responses. They made me start thinking of different things to try. Here is what I tried tonight. I am no longer using compressed sequences. I made two new shows. The first has just the first song only, no background looping for the sign, the second has the entire show with no looping sign. I tried the first new show and everything worked well. I then tried the original show (with the sign) and the strangeness appeared again. Went on to the entire show with no sign and it is still running with the sign light plugged into the house outlet. It has only been 30 minutes,
  8. The rain tonight has prevented me from testing. The weather should clear tomorrow. Anyone have a suggestion?
  9. I started my show last night and everything was going well until about 2 hours into the show when random channels were turning on. I ended the show early and looked here for a solution. I reset all of my control boxes and then used the hardware utility to verify all were still connected. I started an 'on demand' show and I was seeing the same results - random channels were turning on. I ended the on demand show and changed out the CAT5 cable from the computer to control box number one. That did not change anything. I then played the same song through the sequence editor and watched the l
  10. I have a strange situation. I started my show yesterday and the first time through everything looked great. I watched the show a couple hours later and I had random channels turning on when they were not suppose to. I shut down the show and reset each of the 8 controllers. I used the hardware utility to verify all controllers were connected and working, which they were. I started a 'show on demand' and the strangeness remained. I have some fade downs that abruptly turn off and random channels turn on. However, when I run the sequence outside a show through the sequence editor everything
