Almost ready to power up.

Tomorrow, I should be ready to power up for the first time. I built my boards from the kits and tested them all with the hardware utility, each board tested fine then. When I tested them, it was individually and I tested them all with their Unit ID's set to 01. Now that my display is set, they each have a unique ID from 01 through 06. Do I need to do a reset before I try to run a sequence or show? I noticed Dan always recommends a reset when people have a problem, so was just wondering if I should do this too.

"Try a reset: Power off; Set Unit ID to "00"; Power on for a few seconds.... Then power off and set back to the original Unit ID value."

If so, can I do them all at once by setting all their Unit IDs to 00 at the same time, or should I do each one individually?

Thanks for any advice; this is my first year with LOR.

Just an FYI ,I got most of my display up , and did an Enable the show , and everything worked right out of the blocks, I didn't even get a chance to see if any of the units had any blinking LED's or not, no reset required, I have some tweaking to do on some of the sequences, but thats about it. good luck with your display, I will be finishing mine up this weekend.

Denny, I have one model 1 controller, (2) model 2's and (3) model 3's - what does that all mean - who knows? I tested a 32 channel sequence earlier this year and everything was fine but before I mounted my controllers this year I reset them and reset their unit id's just in case. Hooked up all the cat5 cable and ran my 80 channels - perfect! I reset them from advice a few years earlier - I don't think it can hurt.

Good Luck with your show!
