dibblejr Posted October 14, 2018 Share Posted October 14, 2018 (edited) Last Christmas I purchased a brand new Alienware laptop. The best of everything was thrown in it. It played my Christmas show just fine at an average of 20 sequences per night. Virtually no lag. 5 pixie16's a pixie 8 and 20 AC controllers. Running 7 networks. After New Years I shut the laptop down and never opened it until last week. (show computer only) I now have 7 sequences and had problems with them running. Opened a Help Desk ticket and under advisement from them I turned windows updates on to allow it to update itself. That was Friday night. Woke up yesterday and allowed it to restart as asked by Windows 10. With 5 LOR Networks - 3 being 500K enhanced all of my networks have the HS adapters. Built a new show and it had serious delay time between the 7 sequences but it played all 7 in order I selected. However on the second round it would only play one or two sequences and every now and then it would play a third. I had at one point 37 mins between sequences. Yes 37 minutes not seconds. After asking my friends was able to get most of the lag time, I had forgotten about the options tab and selecting the "load all sequences first" (bottom selection). That resolved the lag time, or so I thought. On every attempt I deleted ever old show file to ensure it was not confusing the system. Prior to bed time it played through two cycles perfectly and then stopped. After 30 mins of silence I shut the show down. Woke up this morning and started the show. Once again played through two cycles perfectly, then I got about 15 mins of no music, then it played sequence #1 and 1/2 of sequence number 2 and nothing since. I replied to my help desk ticket with the updates and errors I received yesterday "can not allocate memory" that's when I thought about the antivirus stuff. But all I am getting now is "initializing and recognized as show player" nothing else. Figured Id ask the community while the LOR Help Desk team is in their deserved weekend break. FWIW- Let me add- all props do work when the show plays. TIA JR Edited October 14, 2018 by dibblejr Last sentence added Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
