  1. Paydirt!!! I can finally run "sequences" from a S5 sd card in a G3MP3 Director. If you want to know how - let me know. Of course I'm going to charge you lots of C notes for the solution !!! So tomorrow I will open a ticket with LOR such that maybe Mike or Matt or who ever will fix the problem before Halloween time. Dave Orville. Thanks for your insights. Thought you might like this since I thought I saw a couple of years ago that you had some feline friends www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_LNu6Aaxvk Jr. I sent you a PM if you didn't see it.
  2. I just saw this post Jim. Don't know if your still experiencing issues. For what's it worth, I've been reading a ton of everything because of S5. Are you aware of the topic throttle parameters in the help doc. It strikes me as being related. But I'm still trying to figure S5 out and don't know [Foul Language Used].....
  3. Ah got you Orville. Thanks. Oh. The reason I was asking about the outside director usage, I'm still trying to explain away the discussions about Kingston sd cards. I'm wondering if the reason why I've had success with PNY is because my director is inside pretty much about 70 degrees year round.
  4. Jim, you confirmed the loredit file suffix part at least. I guess the point is I was trying to use the verifier to see if it would produce any error that might point me to why a very basic S5 sd card won't work in my director. So I can now toss that out of the tool bag. I've tried using notepad to view the S5 sd card config file since it now has some commands we can see. Nothing seems to stick out as a possible reason for not starting. But of course S2 cards don't have the new stuff nor can I find any documentation on the S5 sd card config parameters. You've been around a long time, do you
  5. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You for saving my sanity. I hadn't seen that was being eliminated.
  6. KYHI. I still use a windows 2000 server machine. You are correct in that 32GB is the max. But if I'm pretty sure that larger partition sizes with FAT32 are supported in later OS's. You might want to google that to be sure.
  7. Happy New Year you guys. Finally done with the New Year thing. Since some of you are down there where the sun still shines I'm going to post a pic for your enjoyment! Michigan's Winter Wonderland finally returned last night. Since I haven't been online, you've probably both guessed I've been doing some testing since I last posted. I"m really questioning what the H-E-Double L is going on with S5. One thing for sure! I've discovered that port 1 on my G3MP3 Director has fallen ill to Covid-19 That's explains some of my issues that haven't made sense. And it was just re
  8. Orville, I will die before I buy/tradeup to G3's. Can't justify it. Especially when you consider that I do it for the smiles and laughs that people enjoy while watching my shows. My newly completed snowman (after 2 years in development) and just put into "production" has been the hit of the show ever since. Filler sequences less than a minute each! Since I've quadrupled the amount of donations received this year and the long lines of traffic, there just isn't a reason to continue spending all of my money on changing them out. I will share with you and the rest of the
  9. Grasshopper says, "Master" that as I understand it, and please remember I just jumped into the pixel lake and don't know how to swim, I have no intention of going into "pixel" mode with the singing faces. Sorry if I wrote something that implied that. I'm trying to stay in what I believe is called "simple mode". I'm of the believe that the pixie2 as delivered with the singing faces are suppose to be shipped in the "simple mode" as you've mentioned. I've never used S3 or S4. But I've been filing away all the postings I read for the day I will go to S5. That day is here. I've inst
  10. PS. Orville. My thinking has been that I probably will HAVE to implement the AUX A network for my new pixel stuff like you have indicated you've done Ie. Felix, RGB floods, and the CCCII pixels for arches. My problem is with the physical layout of my network. My Director is in the basement with my 1st controller on the north side of the garage. So a cable runs to that side. I split it before the 1st controller running a second leg back to the south side of the garage and then out the south side yard. So I would probably have to relocate the Director. Of course that affects my tra
  11. I follow what your saying Orville.... BUT..... My testing is showing that when I create the sd card is simple mode it is creating the files just like it does in S2. I can't speak to S3 or S4 as I've never installed them. The # files will only be created if I select advanced mode. JR has asked me about the trees running in Simple Mode as well (but I believe this is not related to the sd card simple mode). As I told him I don't follow exactly what the difference is yet, but it's my assumption based on a whole lot of nothing, that commands are sent like they are in the old ch
  12. Well Jr I don't fully understand it yet as I'm still learning about pixel hardware. This link http://store.lightorama.com/rgbprops.html is to their singing tree product. The first paragraph of that page states: Light-O-Rama's Custom Dual Mode Pixel controller allows you to operate the tree in Simple Mode ( 8 RGB channels ) or Standard Pixel Mode as 200 pixels. In Simple Mode, our custom controller will convert 1 RGB channel into a group of pixels such as "eyes open" or "eyes closed". This makes sequencing a complex pixel prop as simple as it gets! Light-O-Rama strives to make co
  13. My plan is to use Felix in simple mode so ther full 500k won't be needed. YET!
  14. Not trying to run off an ell. Just using it for testing the HU. The basement contains my lenovo laptop that I use for developing. The display decided to take a dump. I would have installed S5 on that in a VM. So I'm upstairs on a desktop that's next to a window that I can look out and see Felix along with a few other props. No cable (RS485) so I rigged up a pair of ells I had on the shelf collecting dust to get my commands over to the 1st controller in the garage. My seqs are in perfect sync so I guess I prefer the slower speed as a trade off for possible data loss at hi
  15. Hold the Horses. Don't expend any of your time on this yet. My S2 show just kicked off as I was getting ready to test the S5 Hardware utility again. Thanks to electrons doing what they want, when they want, I can now control the lights. Now the interesting thing is I can do it why the show is currently running. And in fact maybe that's why it's working. Won't know for sure until I can do some more testing later tonight as their already starting to line up. Stay tuned! For more of my frustration!!!!
