  1. I'm undergoing rotator cuff surgery this week and will be laid up for 6 weeks. This will afford me time to add and edit sequences to fit my lighting hardware. I might even take swing at sequencing myself. In the past I've used sequences shared by fellow forum members which "Kinda" work with my props. I've never had or made time to make my show be the best that it can be but will have ample time to customize sequences to get the best show possible. My excel skills have come a log waiver the years but as I only play with this a month or so out of the year I'm far from where I could be I have a couple mega trees and assorted other props. I'm looking for someone to share a few Christmas sequences that I can modify to fit my show. I'm using 4 32 channel controllers and 2 four channel controllers. I don't necessarily need sequences to fit exactly. I plan to spend time making them better fit. My current shows are themed: TSO Religious Charlie Brown Classic Christmas Country Christmas Comical Songs about Santa Songs with Christmas in the titles. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. All The Best, Mark
  2. I feel really stupid asking this but....... Is there any easier way to copy an entire sequence channel other then dragging to the end and selection "copy, Paste", etc. I 've not been able to do that Thank-You, Mark
  3. I'm running version 4.3.18 for what's that worth
  4. It's all jacked up now. The ELL 4 ch will not populate in HU. When I select show on demand the music plays but no lights. I do find 16 ch both 1 and 2 in HU and they do light up when forced by console. The settings I've chosen are 115200 speed 15dBm 32 mw in power level Earlier I disconnected the home ELL and ran cat 5 to controller 1 and selected 115200 then uncooked it and hooked uo controller 2 and did the same. Neither of the 4 ch ELL will populate in HU refresh either hard wired or through RF. They are in the garage very close to the home ELL. I really got it messed up now.
  5. I've changed settings on all my controllers to try to communicate with 4 ch. with ELL that is mounted down the street based on input from a knowledgable user on this forum. Now none of my controllers are being found in HU. What other changes must I make to communicate with my controllers? Thank-You, Mark

LOR Software Version:4.3.24 License Level:Pro Posted 16 hours ago (edited) In the HU under the LOR RF tab where you configure the ELL side of the controller there is a power level setting you can change. Also make sure that you set up the receiving CTB04-ELL on the same frequency and network speed. They should be set at the same speed that you are running your network up to 115K. Also keep in mind that these are line of sight.

LOR Software Version:4.3.24 License Level:Pro Posted 14 hours ago Each one should be hardwired one at a time for configuring and they should each be the only controller connected.

Do similar procedures need to be performed to the ELL's in the system? Still not talking across the street. Quote mrforemark Member Members 0 97 posts Location ohio LOR Software Version:5.3.10 License Level:Advanced Author Posted just now Additionally, can you suggest settings that would best serve my predicament? I found the ELL user manual and see that changes can be made. I also see that coinciding changes will need to be made in sequence editor/show player. I'm an old dude with little knowledge in this field and appreciate your patience. I hope you get paid nicely for this baby sitting, LOL...

  11. Again, Thanks Mr.P. I now have them properly configured. The #9 dip switch was set, but not sure how. I knew nothing about that. It appears as though the distance between the 16 cannel controller in my yard is beyond the reach of the 4 channel across street from my next door neighbor. In the past my next door neighbor participated and his ELL would communicate across the street. Are there settings that can be changed in the RF to enhance the signal/strength? Thank-You, Mark
  12. Thanks for reply Mr.P. Should the CTB04-ELL be hooked up with Cat 5 for this procedure? Do you think other network functions will restore once this procedure is complete?
  13. I'm getting this error when I try to enable for on demand show. When I put my lights and 2 main controllers up all was good. I hit "Enable Schedule" and everything worked worked as I had hoped. Yesterday I tried adding two 4 channel with ELL for neighbors yard and now I'm all jacked up. Neither of the 4 channel controllers could be located in Hdwe.utility mode. I plugged one at a time directly in using cat 5 and they got recognized. Previously I thought the unit ID #s were 4 and 5 on these hits but the were each recognized as ID#1. I changed the unit ID to #4 and #5 and they were recognized. When I unplugged them and utilized the ELL function they reverted to ID#1. Can the 4 channel ELL units have their own Unit ID #s when receiving radio signal or will the be recognized as unit ID from which they are receiving the radio signal? Last night my schedule would not enable so I created a show in simple show builder and it worked but there was no music. It ran and shut down as advertised. This morning nothing will work. No shows will play at all. HELP!!!!!!! Thank-You, Mark
  14. One of my 4 channel controllers isn't behaving correctly. When I turn all the channels on in hardware utility mode only 2 of the 4 channels come on but they go out in a couple seconds. When I plug it in directly with cat 5 cable they all work ok. HELP!!!
  15. Do you have anything comical? also, Charlie Brown, modern or classical?
