Show Not Running


Army Lights

Hi LOR Friends,

Well, I broke out the LOR this week and thought I was all ready to launch a test run tonight for my 3rd year of LOR glory (my lights are up, extension cords connected, sequences complete). No such luck. Here's what I see and have done, and I'm hoping someone can help (PLEASE!):

  • I have 32 channels (1xLOR1602MP3 and 1xCTB16PC).
  • Obviously both of them are plugged in. I have connected them with an ethernet cable. The ethernet cable goes into the center ethernet slot on both controllers (please confirm this is correct).
  • The LOR1602MP3's Red Status is blinking, and has a solid Green P Light and Solid Red E Light.
  • The CTB16PC has a blinking Green "LED1" light.

None of these lights change when I insert the SanDisk (the same disk I used successfully last year). Nothing so much as blinks or flutters. I've used the "Simple Show Builder. The card is being inserted at a time that is within my playing range. I've also put the correct time stamp on the card.

I'm anticipating that people will tell me to break out the RJ45 and head to the "Hardware" program. I would (and will) do this, but my replacement RJ45 is currently en route, as my toddler broke my original. That being said, I wouldn't think I would need to do any assigning of unit IDs, since everything was working well at the end of last year. Once it gets here in a week (how the heck do they justify charging me $16 for ground shipping of something that weighs as much as a pack of gum?!?), I will run the hardware diagnostic.

Until then, does anyone have any suggestions for me? I'm probably doing something stupid. I swear every year I do this, it's like starting over.

THANKS EVERYONE!!! AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

By the way, the Red blinking status light is going off about twice per second.

Odd. The "E" light should only be solid when connected to the Hardware Utility.

I would ask one simple question ... do you have a cable between the MP3 Director and the Controller?

Also, create a show that is scheduled to run anytime (or for as long as possible in the SSB) and test with that. This way you can rule out any scheduling/time based issues.

Don,

Well, I had done everything you said to do, inserted the card, and nothing had worked. I sat down and wrote you a full reply thanking you but telling you none of it work and was about to hit "post" when I looked up and saw my lights going off through the window. This was the first time I had left the card in for a few minutes. Not sure why, but apparently there was some sort of delay. In any case, I'm up and running. I've learned not even to question success sometimes.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for your quick reply!!!

Chris

OK, I know I said I wouldn't question success, but I do have one question for everyone. My show runs regardless of whether or not I have the On/Off button on the LOR1602MP3 in the "On" or "Off" position. It's not a huge deal I guess, but it does seem odd. Any ideas?

The ctb16pc supplies accessory power any time it is plugged in. So it is powering the MP3 director even when the 1602 itself is off and not providing accessory power.
