  1. Thanks Jim !!! I would have bet a box of lights that you would be the one to answer first .. LOL .. We missed last year because of the weather... 70+ inches of rain from Sept to March !! .. YIKES ... So we are back ... Seems after setting up for 2 years .. almost EVERYTHING needed to be rebuilt, reworked or repaired .. 😞 .. Thanks again for the tip .. I'll make the update .. Bob
  2. Wow... it has been a long time since I have been to the forum ... Greetings to ALL !!! We added a suspended wreath to the display this year. It is not part of the animation or musical sequences however I would like to simply turn it on at the beginning of the show and leave it on until the end of the show. Would a simple 1 LOR channel sequence 1 minute of ON long placed in the BACKGROUND section of the Show editor do the trick? What I really didn't want is it to turn off and then back on with each restart in the background. Like I said .. it's been awhile ... Than
  3. Deoxit arrived... applied per instructions... waiting a few mins to connect the display elements up and test .. Thanks again for all the feedback... LOR users are the best !! Bob
  4. I pulled the trigger and ordered a can of Deoxit... It will be here tomorrow.. Thank you all for the feedback.. I appreciate it .. Bob
  5. Thank you for the info ... As these are only the connector cables, i don't have a lot to lose and had already prepared a 50% vinegar/water mix and letting them soak. Actually, they are starting to shiny up (funny way of saying the oxidation is letting go) ... I'll dip them in some baking soda and water and neutralize the acidic vinegar and stop by Harbor Freight or somewhere to see if I can find a small brass brush... If they deteriorate.. then... lessons learned .. Godney, I can't say I disagree with you and had I not jumped the gun I would probably preferred something like you
  6. We were not able to put up our display last year (65+ inches of rain ...) So....In the interest of curbing surprises, I'm pulling everything out and testing . Lo and behold... 1st test out of the box was 8 CoroCanes.. and... as you may have guessed, the first problem. It seems that Cane 1 and 2 look great, but 3 through 8 start to change colors. I have the initial power injection, then 2 other injection points. I have used these for several years so I'm fairly sure the power issue was resolved. However, I'm working on the theory that pin connectors (male and female) have had time (2
  7. Yes .... I am assuming that both nics are not on the same network... If you run Unicast, then you can specify the address to your controller. Only the traffic on that network will go out on that nic. if you are using multicast, it will broadcast across both nics. However, you can add a static route that will contain the multicast traffic to the nic you are using for E1.31 traffic ... route -p add 224.0.0.0 mask 240.0.0.0 <ip of correct pc interface to use> metric 5 The "p" in the route command will make this a persistant route meaning you dont have to set
  8. I Have CDO (Like OCD but all the letters are in the right order ..... like the SHOULD BE !!!)
  9. Ron, As always .. an AWESOME display ... One thing I found so funny that I almost fell out of my chair ... Christmas Eve Sarajevo .. amazing that you live in TN and I live in TX and yet we have the EXACT SAME INTRO ... HAHAHHAHAHAA... Really like the pixel pinwheel .. I may have to either replace my candy cane pinwheel or give it a playmate .. Seriously .. as always .. great show ... Bob
