  1. Jim Thanks for the additional info. Wayne
  2. Jim Is there a difference in the male connector for 5e stranded and solid wire or do they use the same connector? What cable are you guys using then to make your outside cables. Are you using solid wire or the stranded wire? I was looking last night for 5E stranded and it does not seem to a lot of it out there. I was looking for a 500 foot roll. The other thought I had was to buy a few 50 foot 5E patch cables and hack them into the length's I need. Thanks Wayne
  3. Jim, I am curious why you don't like the push thru connectors. Thanks everyone for different views on cables. Phil, I never thought about making a connection as you show above. I have bought the regular panel connectors. I just rebuilt 6 controllers and added the jacks in the bottom of the cases. I also just put together 8 new controllers and put the jacks in them also. I really like the jacks in the bottom. Wayne
  4. What is everyone doing for ethernet cables for your controllers? Are you buying premade cables or making your own? I am thinking about making new cables this year. I have used premade cables all this time, but they are always to long or to short. I have been crimping ends on cables at work and with the new push thru connectors and a new combo crimp/cutter tool and it is not to bad to make cables now. Thanks Wayne
  5. Thanks guys for the info. That helps me know what I need to do. I also like setting the com ports to the higher numbers. Had not thought about that. Wayne
  6. I am going to be playing around with multiple networks with the red usb adapters. If I create multiple adapters on my garage computer for setup and testing, When I save a sequence will that info load on my show computer or will I have to go into the show computer and do it all again? Or is there a specific file I can use to transfer the info. Thanks Wayne
  7. 2 more a/c controllers and 2 more red adapters. So I started last week putting controllers together from the early sale. 4 down and 4 to go. Wayne
  8. I like the way you added the panel mount RJ45 adapter. I liked it so well I had to go to the shop and open up my new controllers to see if I could do the same thing. Are those the Coro adapters? Thanks Wayne
  9. I popped in and got 4 CTB16PC Complete controllers and an extra high speed adapter and shipping was $53.82 and since the controllers did not sell out I decided to get 2 more and the shipping on them was $34.82. I went to the help desk and told them I had done 2 orders and would like to combine them and they did. Saved me about $30.00 First bill had the 53.82 on it and the second had $4.00 on it for shipping charges. And they arrived yesterday. Thank you LOR for saving me $30.00 by combining them and the quick shipping. My first order time was 01:50 and my second time was 10:27 and they still had controllers in stock. Wayne
  10. I just done 2 orders with paypal and it was fine
  11. I was in and out in about 2 minutes and got 4 ac controllers. And then thought what the heck, went back in and got 2 more. Wayne
  12. Jr Thanks for mentioning that HC has these, I have been using another brands that sticks up in the control box quite a bit and makes it tight in there. I also tried the lor ones and sent them back for the same reason. I ordered 4 of the HC to look at and I will order some more as I do my controller builds as I like the overall space that the connector it self takes up in the control box. I also have this type of connector on all of my controllers. Wayne
  13. Normally, I would have started today January 2nd tearing down, but thanks to the ice storm that came thru yesterday, everything is still covered with ice today and now possibly 2 inches of snow tonight and tomorrow on top of the ice. So my display is still running tonight and may run for a couple of more days till everything gets melted off. Wayne
  14. My show computer is also on the network / internet. But there is nothing on it other than LOR and Zara radio. It also has not missed a beat either. The only reason mine is on the net is that during setup I stream Christmas music out my speakers in the yard. And I also create transfer LOR files from my main computer to the show computer. Wayne
  15. Yes, from CTB-16D's to Gen 3's. The old ones work fine for the most part, but they don't like single strand led's on one channel.
