  1. Bummer experience too. Wanted to buy 3 singing tress, had them in my cart in under a 1 minute, tried to check out and poof they were not available. I had a feeling this was going to be the case, because I went onto the the regular LOR site about 5:30 pm (8:30 ET) and they were listed as sold out except one. Did get an extra controller that I needed. I hope they have the Singing Trees in stock for the next sale or at the Christmas Expo.
  2. Correction - disregard the above information I think I just discovered that the CCRII lead wire (#3) looks like it is fraying. I assume I can just cut the outside piece of the three whites and splice it. When I wiggled the lead wire the CCR strip would go on, then after a while go off or to partial. Am I correct in my assumption? See a picture of the wire.
  3. I have a 16 CCRII Pixel Tree, about 3 years old. One of the CCRII (#3) have started to act up. The symptoms are as follows. I turn off the controller about an hour after the shows at night, then that controller goes on the next evening 30 minutes before the shows (have it set to a Wemo plug). When I turned the box on during the day today to start testing it, CCR#3 worked. However, tonight CCR #3 worked for a little bit then froze on red in different places on the CCR strip, then I turned off the controller for a 1 minute and the red freeze goes away, but then CCRII #3 does not work at all anymore. I think my issue may be in the controller on that channel (#3), what is the best way to troubleshoot. I believe that the actual strip CCR#3 is working because it worked today when I first turned it on during the day to test and again tonight when my shows began. Seems like after the controller is running for a while CCR#3 has issues. Also any ideas for a quick fix that will not cause my controller to go out. Thanks Jim
  4. Looking for a sequence for Believe from Polar Express sung by Josh Grogan. Song needs to be 4:18 minute version. Have not found anyone with the full version of the song with a sequence that can be modified. thanks
  5. I am considering purchasing at least one Singing Face Tree. I have been a LOR user since 2006 and would like to venture out to some of the newer items. I have a PRO license and have been using a CCR tree for the past several years, along with an old fashion Mega Tree. I use about 128 channels along with the CCR pixel tree and two CCR strips. Any words of wisdom about incorporating the Singing Face Trees into my programing. If I read correctly the Singing Face trees come with there own controller and are ready to work, all I need to do is incorporate the controller into my sequences, similar as I did with my CCR tree several years ago. Am I on the correct track. Any words of wisdom is always appreciated. I do have a You Tube channel showing my displays: https://www.youtube.com/user/raiderjm Also need to know do I need to upgrade my individually controllers, in order to use with the Singing Faces. My controllers have been working for years and still work. I have some purchased back in 2007 and more recent, I believe the newer G3 controllers. Words of wisdom would be great! I was planning to go to the Vegas show last summer, to get up to speed on newer tech, but we all know what happened Thanks
  6. Any recommendations about for a model of a good snow/flake machine at a reasonable price. Include any specs that are a must. Also any pit falls/recommendations in adding a snow machine to your display. Thanks
  7. I am finding out that I need to replace some of my LED C9 light sets that I have been using since about 2010. Seems like there are a lot of websites that offer lights now. Any recommendation. I am looking for simple LED lights C-9 with a variety of single colors strands (red, blue, green etc), that are somewhat bright that will last for another 10 years like my current sets. Thanks
  8. I have a controller with two 50 strand cosmic color bulbs. I have been able to narrow it down to one strand of 50 cosmic color bulbs not working properly. The first 9 bulbs in that strand work, but the rest do not. Is there anything I can do to fix this strand or should I just order a new strand?
  9. I been testing my system and for some reason the ports reversed. Last year port 4 went to and ran my 7 LOR Controller boxes and port 5 was my secondary network going to my pixel tree. Does the USB converter 485B remember ports? I had everything labeled, but could not get it to work until I swapped the Ethernet cables. Plugging 4 into 5 and 5 into 4. I even went into the hardware utility and tried to re-initialize each port separately, but kept getting an error. I may have caused it to switch ports during this process too. Does it matter if the ports reversed which may have reversed in my computer? I went into my computers device manager, then plugged in one USB485 (labeled port 4 last year) and it came up as port 5 which was connected to the pixel tree last year, then I went and plugged in the other USB485 (labeled port 5 last year) and it showed up as port 4 and was connected last year to the controllers. Then I simply switched the ethernet cords and everything worked. The Any other words of wisdom? Does the port numbers matter other than going to the proper devices. Thanks Jim
  10. I have a CCB controller that has 50 bulbs (25 bulbs on each side - s1 s2). Last year half of the bulbs (25) went dead or started to not work properly. This happened half way through the season, I did not have time to figure out what happened so this year I am trying to determine if it is a hardware issue with the controller or a programming glitch. I recently discovered in the SE that unit 1 and unit 2 do not have the same identical lines. CCB "OA" s1 has 7 lines and CCB "OA" s2 has 10 lines in the SE. It looks like channels 315-317 are used twice in s2 and called both CCB and CCD. I do not see CCD is s1. Is this my issue? To help better illustrate what is in my SE, I have attached a word doc with pictures of my actual SE. Can anyone tell me if my SE is correct? My next step would be to further trouble shoot the controller, any advice on steps to trouble shoot controller would be appreciated too, assuming it is not a programing glitch. Thank You LOR CCB codes.docx

  12. I am using SS in visualizer mode so that I can have it auto sequence my 5 channel STAR. However the start is barely turning on during the sequence. The STAR is using #17 in timing map. channels 1-16 are my tree. Any tips on how to get the START more alive.
  13. GOT IT It works by deselecting the macro, even through I did not see any macro channels it worked, when I deselected and recut and repasted. As for the visualization program I am OK there too, I think. I just got confused I have some SS that I purchased that had the STAR in it all ready. Then I have other SE that I need to use SS to make the tree and include the STAR and know that I have to use visualizer to do the instant sequence with the Star. Thanks you
  14. I do not see macro channels in my SE, but it was checked in the export window. However I know I have to be in visualizer to get the STAR, to program too. So now I am going back to figure out how to do that.
  15. Hi I just set up the tree to make sure everything is working, however I have one glitch. There is a set of led (about 6) going diagonally down that are not responding to the sequence. I went back to hardware utility to make sure all strips are working with all colors and they are. SO I must have done something wrong when I cut and pasted from SE to SE. I exported the SS into SE, then I opened up both the SS convert to SE and the regular SE for that sequence. I added my new device (see picture below), . With both windows open I cut SS from inside SE into my full sequence for the song. When I play just the SS that was exported into SE, it works fine, but when I play from SE with the pasted SS in the SE, I get a diagonal of lights out (about 6 led) on every strip (16 strips). Here is how I added the device in my SE. What am I doing wrong?
