  1. Yes, but how do I make the show start at 5pm Tuesday and end at midnight on Thursday? The Hub uses the same scheduling method as the HW Utility.
  2. I recently acquired a Director G4 to take advantage of show scheduling. In the past I would run a mini-director connected to a programmable timer, and now an outdoor smart switch (on a Wink smart home system). I like to have my show start promptly at a specific time, however, it starts a bit late due to boot-up times of the mini-director, and hoped the g4 would take care of that. The issue I'm having is the special schedule that I run on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. I have the show start at 5pm, and have it run continuously until midnight after Christmas day (for a total of 31 hours). How do I do this when creating a show in the Hub? On my programmable timer, I had 8 program slots where I could set the "ON" time on Tuesday 5pm and the "OFF" time at Thursday 12am. I can do the exact same with the smart switch, except that I can program everything from my smartphone (No more sitting outside in the cold pushing buttons and trying to read a tiny LCD screen). If this is not possible, is it because of the Showtime Director limitation? Or software design? Can the Director start a show on this day and time and stop a show on this day and time? Also, in my case, since the show stopped at midnight Thursday, that means I can't have it restart at 5pm Thursday as well.
  3. Comparison: http://www1.lightorama.com/showtime-sequencing-suite/#levels Cost: http://store.lightorama.com/s2soup.html Took me only 15 seconds to find the answers!
  4. How the heck am I going to be able to create and upload my playback file to the Pixie's to run in standalone mode?
  5. I read that the G3 Director has a internal battery to maintain the clock. The battery is supposed to last 10 years. Does the G4 have the same kind of battery, and after 10 years, can the battery be replaced?
  6. Any way of bringing back custom keyboard mappings that was in S4?
  7. Would something like this help? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01D0N7AI8/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  8. We probably would never see a native Macintosh software for the Showtime suite. I think they have mentioned it was because the hardware they sell relies on some drivers that only the Windows OS can provide. I guess in order to get a native MacOS application, they would have to start at the hardware level.
  9. Licenses can be bought/upgraded/renewed here: http://store.lightorama.com/sopr.html
  10. They are all smart pixels (runs off Pixie XD controllers- I have the 4 and 8D.)
  11. I remember in one of the beta releases of S5 I was able to rename the channels. Now I can't in 5.1.0 . Is there something I'm missing? I've tried double clicking on the channel itself (which brings up the prop settings the channel's associated to), or right clicking on the channel, but don't see any "rename channel" in the menu.
  12. Should there be a separate forum for the Pixie XD / PixCon controllers? Or should the Cosmic Color Device forum be renamed to include the Pixie's as well?
  13. If you open a ticket and ask for it, they'll send you the firmware file. I did the same for my Pixie 4D that I purchased last year. You'll have to use S5 to take advantage of the standalone feature. It doesn't work properly in S4.
  14. It's this strip: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CNL6MNM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1 It's a 5 meter strip, with 60 leds per meter which comes to 300 leds. IC every 3 leds, so it's a 100 pixel strip. Well, off to amazon and find some inline fuse kits.
