Channel works in Hardware Utility, but doesn't work in sequences

I have a single channel with 100 incandescent minis that works perfectly fine when I control it with the hardware utility, but when I run my sequences, the channel won't fire (the other 15 channels all fire normally during the sequences). Any ideas?

Using a LOR1602W controller.

Genius...my 11-year old son (he does all the sequencing) had accidentally mis-assigned 2 channels and correcting those channels fixed not only this problem, but another issue we were having with another string of lights randomly flickering during the sequences.

Thanks!

Run the verifier. Also double check your channel config. It is way too easy to get the wrong controller ID, and not notice.

How's the verifier work? I've also got a strand of light rope that works on the Hardware tool and on certain sequences, but it doesn't on an always on sequence.

Launch it off your start menu. Click verify, and it will do a bunch of checks on your software install and registry settings.

After that, it will load your schedule, to see what shows you have configured. From there, it will pull what sequences you have in the shows, and how they are used in the shows. Then it will look for a wide range of errors, or potentially unintended items. For example, channels with no hardware config. Channels that are never on. Channels in the same track that both have the unit and channel info. Channels in different tracks, that are not duplicates, but are configured with the same ID. I get a lot of warnings for channel completely off, and I can either right click and tell it to ignore that one warning, or all warnings of that exact type.

Then see what is left that is more critical. You can also go to the ignored results tab, and see if there are any that you should not have accidentally ignored.

To ad an additional note about the verifier.

The verifier will NOT find a channel that you did not define. In other words if the hardware channel that is not working in the sequence is not assigned to a software channel in your sequence the verifier will not detect that.
