I can not wait for my order to arrive. For the first time I will have RGB's (Dummy) in my Christmas Display, and a 16 more channels than last year.

I check my order status everyday hoping to see a tracking number.

In no way was i complaining or expecting something amazing. LOR is a great company and ive been doing this for many years. So i have nothing but good things to say about LOR. I was just looking for information. Like most companies I'm sure FIFO is typical. I'm guessing im high on the list since i put my order in with the first couple of minutes. I was just wondering if LOR has posted "maybe" we have recieved "X" oders and we have completed/shipped "X" orders. I know the MAD grad sale is big but how BIG. Just a nice thought to keep people informed. I'm sure with the amout of orders there is bond to have some go missing and how would you ever know if that was you.

Again i Love LOR great company and amazing support.

Next weekend is here and both new controllers are in place.  I now have every lighting controller on an enhanced network, and the only thing left on my non-enhanced Regular network is the InputPup (since you can't do inputs on an enhanced network).  The landscape lighting show should start in about a half hour as I type this, but everything has been tested and is working just fine :P:D.

Not that I need to, but I just might write a new landscape lighting sequence in SuperStar just so I CAN run the landscape lighting as an intensity file. It would be a good test since everything will be on intensity files for Christmas....

Show came on and panic set in!  None of the lights on either of the new controllers came on :angry:.  What did I miss?  How come my new Gen 3 controllers are not working - even though they did when I tested using the hardware utility?

Checked both sequences and everything was right (I had moved a bunch of channels around as part of the network changes).  Maybe the new controllers are not working with an enhanced network.  So I changed my AuxA network to non-enhanced and restarted the show.  All five of those lights came on properly.  Changed AuxA network back to enhanced and restarted the show - no lights from the new controllers- HOLY CRAP!

OK, what firmware version are these two controllers?  What is the current version?  Turns out that both were several versions back.  Updated firmware as follows:

CTB08Dg3 updated from Ver. 1.00 to Ver. 1.02

CTB16PCg3 updated from Ver. 1.06 to Ver. 1.08

Restarted the show and both controllers are working with the firmware update - whew :D:D!  I did not think that any G3 controllers version would not work on an enhanced network.

Jim. I got two gen 3 controllers as well in the mad grab.  I haven't had time to open boxes yet and probably won't for another month or so. So, I need to update firmware which is fine but you have to update to..... oops, nevermind should of let my coffee sink in first before I comment.  I saw the two separate firmware updates and thought I had to update one at a time meaning version 1.00 to 1.02 then to next level version until it was up to date.  now I see you updated two different controllers!  Doh!

Correct.  Two controllers of different types.  I was a bit surprised that both had old enough firmware that they could not handle an enhanced network.

I will be receiving my order on 5/3/16. Can't wait. When is the next sale? Does anyone know when they usually have it? I know it's in the summer time but what month do they usually have it? Trying to know how much money to budget for and by when I'll need it. Thanks.
