  1. Some other things I see posted here: Directors DO NOT SUPPORT E1.31. They support LOR/ELOR/DMX only. ELLs should NOT be used on LIGHTING NETWORKS with Pixels, or with any network that needs to run faster than 115K. A director link is NOT a lighting network If you power the MP3 director via a transformer, the MP3 director WILL send power to an ELL on port 1 over the CAT 5 for newer ELLs. That's not something we advertise. If not, you can power the ELL with a transformer. You will want to ensure that EACH director in a director chain has something supplying power to it
  2. Why do you guys do this. A G4 MP3 director with Director Sync can run as many 1000K networks as there are ports available on the MP3 director(s). IF you are using Director Link, that is PORT 1. Director link sends timing data ONLY to all directors that are connected. You can use ELLs to send director link timing data with NO issues. Any OTHER port(s) can run 1000K speed. If you have 2 4 port G4 MP3 directors using Director Link, the 6 (three available on each director) can run 1000K without an issue. In this case you have 6 SEPARATE NETWORKS (REG and AUX A - AUX E) all at 1000K
  3. It's come to our attention that various misinformed people (or outright trolls) are trying to convince people if/when a spring sale will be held. I'm also sure that the BS 'Gold Membership for advanced access' (or whatever other precious metal/gemstone/radioactive element) story is also spreading at this time. There are only TWO people in the company that know if and when a sale will be held. Those people are the owners. They do not share that information with us in advance. No one (Not Me/Matt/Brian/Anyone on the help desk/etc.) knows but them. On 04/09/2021 it was announced t
  4. Today we released production version 5.6.0 of the Light-O-Rama Software Suite. This is an official production release, not a beta release. This is a feature release and contains new and exciting features for Sequencer and Superstar, along with normal bug fixes and improvements. More information is found in the 'What's New' section of the help file. S5 fully integrates the Pixel Editor, Sequence Editor, and Visualizer into a single program and adds many enhancements to help you program large channel count stages. S5 uses a different methodology called 'Visual Sequencing' to create
  5. There was an issue with eMails out of our licensing database. If you purchased a new license or requested your license information between 1/21 and 1/25 your eMail was just sent and should now be in your InBox (or possibly spam folder). New Licenses/Upgrades were handled properly. The only thing that did not happen was the outgoing eMail to the users. Please note that if you requested your license multiple times, which is likely because the system was not responding, you received 1 eMail for each request.
  6. On January 20th 2021, we reduced the prices of the SuperStar add-on for new purchases. As compensation for existing SuperStar license holders, we have extended to them a free upgrade to the next higher level of the SuperStar software. If you were an existing SuperStar license holder on or before the price change on January 20th, 2021 to take advantage of your free upgrade simply re-register your LOR software. Once you have re-registered your license will be upgraded. For more information on how to register, see http://www.lightorama.com/help/registering_light-o-rama.htm?zoom_highlightsub=regis
  7. Today we released version 4.4.16 of the Light-O-Rama Software Suite. This is an official production release, not a beta release. This release includes several bug fixes. This release comprises bug fixes that were found during the 2020 season, and it is recommended that you update. How to check if your license covers this version To check whether or not your license covers this version, please go to the license retrieval page, and enter your email address (the one you purchased your license with). An email should then be sent to you with information about your license. The "Sum
  8. Today we released production version 5.5.18 of the Light-O-Rama Software Suite. This is an official production release, not a beta release. There have been several critical bugs discovered in versions 5.5.8,5.5.10, and 5.5.12. It is recommended that if you are using any of these versions that you immediately upgrade to 5.5.18. This release comprises many bug fixes that were found during the 2020 season, and it is recommended that you update. S5 fully integrates the Pixel Editor, Sequence Editor, and Visualizer into a single program and adds many enhancements to help you progr
  9. Additional date/time stuff: Recently Microsoft was posting about one of their certificates getting ready to expire in Windows and why you shouldn't delete it. That made me think that I should also say something about our counter-signatures and how our programs - even long after our certificate expires are still signed and can be trusted. Remember that signatures rely on trust. And not just trust, but an entire CHAIN of trust. Certificates (what are used to generate and validate signatures) are issued based on a hierarchy. In our example, we are at the bottom. Our certificate is
  10. I can't stop people from creating whatever they want on an SD card manually. If it worked for you, then that was a bug that has now been fixed. The official supported number of sequences for a show since the beginning has been 99.
  11. The limit has always been 99 since the first MP3 directors were created as far as I can tell. I looked through the old code and see the references to 99 back into S1 - almost 20 years ago. I'm the one that has worked on that code since S2 (in everything from the Hardware Utility, Simple Show Builder, and now Hub) for every generation since the first. I have worked on that code for 12 years now and it has never been anything but 99. That goes all the way back to S2, so even if it was a change (and I doubt that it was and don't see where it ever could have been), it's at least 12 years o
  12. Due to ongoing issues with yesterday's inclement weather, the LOR main site is once again closed. LOR manufacturing, repairs, shipping, and phone support are all shut down for today. UPS and FedEx have cancelled all service as well. The LOR Help Desk (the Ticket System) is still up and available should you need technical support.
  13. The nor'easter that swept across the north east late yesterday and continuing onto this morning was only predicted to drop 3-6 inches of snow at our headquarters in Upstate NY. As of 9AM this morning, the total is 2 feet and is still climbing. LOR manufacturing, repairs, shipping, and phone support are all shut down for today. UPS and FedEx have cancelled all service as well. The LOR Help Desk (the Ticket System) is still up and available should you need technical support.
  14. Additionally: We have been getting MANY reports of SD cards made by other manufactures also having issues this year. Some like the OP have cards that will work and then randomly just STOP working. Or reset in the middle of a show. Or work for days and then get stuck INITing (solid red on a mini director). There are only a few mfg of SD cards in the world. Sandisk is one, Kingston is another. There are possibly a few others. EVERYONE ELSE just buys cards from one of these mfgs and then sticks their name on them. Most frustrating is that you may have purchased "Best By Mike" S
  15. We suggest Kingston Technology 4GB to 32GB SDHC class 4 (or higher) memory cards because they're rated to work at -20 degrees. These can typically be found at your big-box stores or you can do a quick Internet search for them. https://amzn.to/372QRR5 https://amzn.to/373yriX SD or SDHC memory cards should be formatted as FAT16 or FAT32. SDXC memory cards (typically 64GB and higher) will not work unless the device is partitioned so the first partition is formatted as FAT32. We do NOT recommend any SanDisk SDHC memory cards. Many of our customers have reported issues making them work
