  1. Does the CCR strip cycle RBG color in reset/test mode? IE hold reset button in and apply power to CCR controller.
  2. No channels moved around. No computer changes, Same USB495B as last year. Macro accident can happen but I would suspect not on both computers. I am completely perplexed by this problem.
  3. Long winded but diagnosed as well as possible Have 2 CCR arches and 3 -16 channel controllers. 3 controllers seem to behave properly. Both CCR's nothing. Exact same setup as last year. Have 5 extra CCR systems not in use yet. Swapped all items out, CCR controllers, net cable, power supplies, and ribbons. Same results on show computer and programming computer both of which have same sequence that worked last year. Did not copy sequences at all this year. 3 CCR controllers produce no lights on ribbons, 4 CCR controllers produce lights on only 1/2 of the ribbon. All controllers/CCR reset/test fine. Only thing not swapped out is USB485B, but again `6 channel controllers work fine. Thoughts or suggestions appreciated. Thanks, Bird
  4. Looking for someone in the Cincinnati area that is familiar with cutting and soldering CCR strips. These old eyes and shaky hands just not going to get the job done. Willing to compensate for time. Have soldering station etc. Now looking at this for 2016 season but would like to get started soon. Have the CCR's for house roof outline but of course roofline does not come in convenient 16 foot lengths so need to do some modifying. Modifications will consist of cutting a strip and adding a length of wire in the cut.
  5. Having the same issue but sometimes bugs can slip through the system so no problem. Will wait for the patch/fix FYI - running Win 7 Home Premium SP1
  6. I have a new lighting element in the designing stage. Until Christmas 2012 I need to keep the design quiet. I would like to email someone the rough concept and get an idea if it's even possible using CCR's and current S3 Advanced /wSS. /cross fingers that LOR can do this
  7. Well on a positive note: I had to hard reset both controllers once. One controller twice. Redetect controllers twice, using hardware utility. But both CCR's cable tied to 1/2" grey electrical conduit made onto 16' arches have been working flawlessly every night for three weeks now. Bottom line, don't give up. When working as you intend, they look fantastic.
  8. well that worked .. not sure why nor thrilled the reset button was stuck .. but the CCR works again .. and this time of year thats the important thing

  10. Showtime Pro LOR1602W, S3 Advanced, 2 CCR's Last night everything worked "after I reset both CCR controllers and used the hardware to test them". Played sequence a couple of times with no issues. Tonight plugged everything in again, CCR-1 "02 - CR150D Ver 1.07" blinked white as expected. CCR-2 unit ID 3 however, all LED's come on and are cycling thru red, green & blue. Looks very pretty as they are in the shape of an arch. Starts at group 1 and runs to group 50 as a chase then changes to the next color and runs again. All led's are staying on 100% of the time at 100% brightness and chasing the color changes one color at a time until all 50 groups are the same color. Then changes to the next color. Tried to play the sequence and everything else preformed as intended except CCR-2. Tried hardware utility, it finds unit ID 1 " 01 - CTB16D Ver 4.40" & unit ID 2, but several attempts does not find unit 3. Flakey controller maybe? This is the 3rd time I have run the CCR's. 1st time was test a of each CCR with one of the controllers not positive which one but I believe it was unit ID 2. Suggestions?
  11. S3 Advanced w/2CCR Can not get the control panel to show in the system tray. Running Windows 7 Home Premium Suggestions or ideas? Never mind .. old age

    Last year I purchased the 16 channel starter kit with the Advanced software upgrade. This year I am a click away from purchasing 2 CCR's and I can't seem to find an answer to my question already in print. I've noticed the older I get the slower the brain works. Even though the CCR's have a controller, does the CCR controller require one channel of the LOR1602W to operate in sync with the rest of the lights? :?
