Pixels do not start correctly

I posted this in General Hardware section but thought someone over here might help me.

Everything works perfectly in Superstar Sequencer. However I am having problem with pixels 41 to 50.

1. Programmed: pixels 41-50 on. Tested: off

2. Programmed: pixels 1-40 on, 41-50 off. Tested: pixels 1-50 all on.

3. Programmed: pixels 1-50 on. Tested: all on.

Does anyone have similar problem and how to solve it?

You dont give a lot to work from ..

What pixel controller are you using?

Is this only one string of pixels or a ribbon thats 50 pixels?

 

If everything is perfect in SS.. then my first guess would be the configuration of your controller(?)

Bob: I use LOR controller. It controls 2 50-pixel strings.

These two string forms 3 concentric stars in the pattern 50 pixels, 40 pixels and 10 pixels stars. This is how I set up the configuration

Unit ID Mode: Dual Normal (CCB two Unit IDs)

Channel Mode: Triples

Standalone Speed: 9

Ribbon/String Parameters: 2, both check boxes are ticked

Unfortunately, I will have to defer to another member on this one.

I've never had a LOR (CCR,CCB or CCP) setup and cant offer any assistance.

Maybe Don or someone familiar with this device could help.

 

Sorry I couldnt give you an answer.

I have a problem with my CCP's too. Using the SuperStar sequence and the visualizer everything work great. However, when I send it out to my pixel tree, A lot is scrambled. Lights come on when they are not suppose to and random patterns. I used a sequence that was from SuperStar and didn't make any changes to it, but when I run the verifier, it give me an error #28 and 30. I assume that I may have a cat5 cable problem, bit not sure. I'm running all LOR CCP's and controllers and using the same pixel tree design as Brian uses (24x25 with the Globe). I will let it run for this year, because of the cold weather we are having, but when I take it down, I'll check all my cat5's. Does this sound like this would be the problem?

 

Thanks
