  1. Problem corrected by changing from 32 bit to 16 bit. Its all good now.
  2. Updated my vista laptop to latest 2.8.12 and lost last 10 sequences at bottom of list. The left columns are normal with all the channel info. The screen is completly white with no lines columns or anything. The lost sequences are not music sequences but talking and test sequences. A few times I have gone blank on all sequences but closing file and reopening corrects this. Sure would appreciate and help or ideas.

This dotted line box stays on until I left click out of the box area. Everything plays normal and lights are operating normal with daytime scene. The version is 2.3.6 advanced. Everything appears normal except it won't go into night scene. Bill Bob I find my main laptop has 2.6.2 advanced verses 2.3.6 with Millimun which doesn't work. Could this be the problem? Bill

  5. I have 2 laptops with Vista & Windows 7. Night scene turns on/off normal. 3rd is desktop with Millinium. Can't turn on night scene on this computer. All 3 have the latest LOR firmware. Any idea on why the Millinium will not turn on night scene? All other features operate normal on the 3 computers. Hopefully I can change some setting on Millinium and make night scene come on!

  6. Does cat 5 wire from iDMX carry same signal that the XLR cable carries? In other words, could you provide signal to DMX convertor box by LOR daisy chain by using RJ45 adapter to XLR to DMX convertor and convert back to RJ45 and complete the LOR daisy chain? I have conduit under my drive way and have 2 cat 5 wires in this 3/4" conduit. Problem is conduit is full because it has 2 phone cables and 2 TV comcast cables along with my 2 cat 5 cables. I want to add DMX to other side of drive way. If I must run 2 XLR cables, it would require new conduit or I could consider wireless. It would be great
  7. Well it didn't take my smash and bash to solve my problem of HWU not finding my controllers on refresh. All I did was turn off power to each controller and after turning power back on, the HWU quickly located all 7 controllers and I am good to go and test as I set up my lights.
  8. Charles Thanks for the reply and yes I have had this recognition problem in the past but usually get it to operate normal by trial and test or smash and bash. Not happening this time but I will keep trying. Was hoping there was a better way of doing this and I asked Dan about it today but he gave me no answer. I guess there is no good answer. How do do you test out your lights at set up without HWU? I need to turn on certain channels to test out my lights at set up. I guess I could set up sequence to turn on certain channels for testing and will do this if I can't get HWU to do what it is sup
  9. Thought I should give some type of final report on the ATG decoders and rope lights. I have all the 680' of LED rope lights up and running with 8 decoders controlling the lights from LOR. I had bit of problem setting the ID's but once I worked it out it went well. It ran great for 4 days and then quit as I could not turn off lights. With Dan's help at LOR he suggested checking polarity switch on iDMX1000. Sure enough it was in wrong position as I must have bumped it in moving the iDMX1000 to its final location. I also lost my monitor and this took place after installing nice new 20" monitor. I
  10. Yes I agree that this decoder has two parts, one the power supply as you point out, the other side is a decoder to handle DMX. So far I have only run these decoders under test set up but I was able to assign IDs to all 11 units and they work very well with LOR control. I will be setting these up next week so we'll see how well they operate once they are daisy chained with my LOR. Bill
  11. Charles I had 2 controllers I was testing, one worked, one did not. One had logic board and 36 different settings for different color combinations with position 36 for DMX encoding. This controller worked OK. The 2nd was a decoder with reed switches for setting ID. This is the unit that would not do anything. When I received the 11 new encoders, they all worked great after getting ID's set which was a challange. I tried the old decoder after setting up all the new ones and it still would do nothing. I now have a decoder that would make a good boat anchor for a very small boat. Bill

Bill Charles Finally received my complete order from China and the were very fair as they sent extra decoder and didn't ask for bad unit to be returned. The good news is my 11 new decoders were able to be set up with LOR and iDMX1000 and work very well from LOR sequences. The only problem was setting ID's as LOR didn't want to reconize the reed switch settings on the decoders. I kept trying until

  14. klb I agree 100% with your analysis. I tried to do with attached schematic but couldn't handle the cross over voltage that existed on ac input side. Do you see any way to do this? Attached files

I now find out from their manual they build a different model U108 rope light that has selenium rectifier built into power cord. If this has neg neutral, it would be ideal to run direct from LOR. The K108 rope light has + neutral and operates on 120VDC. I tried for weeks to use (3) bridge rectifiers and run direct from 3 channels of LOR. However I had cross over voltage problem on input side of rectifiers
