Hello everyone. This is my first time useing the LOR system. I have a 32 Chanel setup witch i built myself. Everything is working perfectly. I am having a little trouble with the sequencing, but im sure it will come, and i will get better with every tempt. The question I have is can anyone tell me how to get the lights just to stay on steady in between shows? This may be a silly question, but i just cant seem to figure it out!

First off, welcome to the "hobby"!

Evan has pointed you to a good post on this issue and I thought that I would give you some info on this as well, since I do a similar thing to what you want (I think).
I set up basically 3 shows for my display.
I have a static lights show that runs from 4 PM till 6 PM. Then my main show runs from 6 PM till 10 PM. Then a 3rd show that runs static lights again from 10 PM till 11 PM. This works as I have my main show set to just loop the songs randomly for the time that the main show is running (6 till 10) and then the other shows run before and after the main show.
Now if you mean that you want to have lights on while your main show is running (sort of as a filler for time - ie your songs run for say 23 minutes and you want your shows to start on the half hour, then you need approx. 7 minutes of "filler" time).
One way to do this is to make an animation sequence (no music) and put it under the animation tab in the show editor. That animation will run whenever your main musical sequences are not running and will be overridden by the actual musical sequences.
Then you set up your show scheduler to run shows every half hour so that things will "kick off" on the times that you want them too.
I have not used this method yet but am told that it works fine.

Another trick is to go through and get all your song times and insert short musical sequences (with or without music) into your show setup under the musical tab to add the required time into things so that your show runs for exactly the amount of time you want before it restarts. This method requires pretty acurate timing though and can be tough to get down exactly.

I hope that helps with things and I'm sure you will find a lot of tricks by trial and error as many of us have as well as the tremendous amount of knowledge that is available here from others.
Everyone is pretty busy now getting their own shows to run so gettin help is a little "iffy" right at the moment but can be found if you just have a little patience.

Good luck and happy holidays.

If you use the SimpleShowBuilder, one of the options on the...Set Time page(I think) is Turn All Lights Off or Leave All Lights On.. this will either turn everything off after your show, or leave them on statically after the last sequence..
