  1. Thank to everyone so far. Do any of you know what size box LOR uses when they ship their 1602 controllers? I want to protect them but I have been guilty of overpackaging in the past. The cost of all the packaging material adds up so I don’t want to overdo it either.
  2. Hi Everyone. Hope all is well in the off season! Like so many, I am increasing the number of RGB Props and have some extra 1602W controllers that I will be selling soon. Just curious to know if anyone has found a reasonably inexpensive way to ship them. They are quite sturdy, and don't need too much padding, but the things are just heavy! I will probably have 15 or so to sell in a few weeks and would like to have a plan before I sell them. One option for me (being a Delta Air Lines employee) is using the discount that I get with Delta Cargo. But that would require the buyer to pi
  3. Well this is a little embarrassing! You know that old saying " Can't see the forest for the trees"? Well it just bit me in the butt! I got home today and reset the problem controller. It didn't do a thing. I started watching the test sequence and noticed that there were times that just the naughty 10 channels were on and nothing else. I looked at the programming and didn't see a time where that was true. As a matter of fact, when they were on, all the other multicolor channels were supposed to be on too! It turns out that controllers 80 & 81 were not powered. The GFI fo
  4. I also suspect a cable or comm port problem. Try a different cable and also change the order that they are connected to each other.
  5. Just a couple of thoughts Have you tried to connect controller 6 to controller 8 and look at the network with hardware utility? There might be a comm port issue on controller 6. If there is a bad port you can make it the last controller in the daisy chain since it will not need to pass data out. Also, place controller 7 in a different place in the daisy chain and test. I agree with jfuller8400 about setting the controller ID with Hardware utility. I do not think that it will result in a permanent change. Have you tried to reset the controller? Power off/ set ID to 00 / powe
  6. Greetings all, Not sure if this is a hardware of software issue but lean toward hardware. Basically some channels are coming on when they shouldn't. Some background! My display uses 7 LOR networks plus e1.31 for my pixels I know this is overkill but it helps with the layout of my display, fault tolerance, and troubleshooting REG is for the majority of my front yard AUX A/B/C Networks are for my CCR tree AUX D is for my side yard AUX E is for my CF50D Cosmic Color Floods AUX F is only for 3 controllers that control the multicolor lights
  7. Some additional info about your setup would be helpful How many networks? What other controllers do you use? How is everything connected. Can you connect to the other controllers with the Hardware utility? One year, I had a problem with the comm port on the very first controller in the daisy chain. No data got to it and therefore no data went downstream. My CCRs (on different networks) were fine but none of the AC powered lights worked. The things that immediately come to mind are: In SE do you have "Control Lights" checked? I think it is in the Play menu at the top of
  8. Thanks Matt. I didn't think that the excess mattered. I'll report back! Tony

  10. I have two 22 x 36 matrices. From the viewer's perspective, they are physically identical. In PE, however, they are different. The original started out as a 18 x 32 centered in a 22 x 36 Boscoyo matrix panel. Thinking that bigger is better, I filled in the surrounding empty spaces. I created a custom prop in PE for that one. The second was built as a vertical matrix in PE. They look almost identical in the preview. The format selections for "Make the same size" works for width only. The vertical and both choices makes one of them much shorter than the other. My problem is that
  11. Thanks Alan. I went that route first but it seems that the countdown effect is limited to 100 seconds. I'm playing a medley for 5 minutes prior to the show starting and thought I’d use the matrix to indicate when the music is over and the show starts With the great help from Matt I’m sure I’ll get this working. Tony
  12. I think the answer is to make a prop with each ribbon individually. Apply the bars effect to one ribbon and you have a chase. Then create a group with all 12 for the whole tree This would allow you to do a group of left six/ right six or odd/ even. Lots of possibilities. Hope this helps
