 I have been doing what your trying to do for the last 5 years it works fine, your just not setting up the controller right .In Network preferences you show your controller with LOR id's  that not right click on the DMX tab in Network Preference and add the Alphapix IP ADDRESS and add 16 universe numbers  you have assigned to the Alpha pix controller then in the sequence editor insert new device 16 times, once at a time add universe number and select 50 pixels than combine those 50 pixels to make a group now you have one line do this 15 more times than copy and paste your  Holiday Sequence to those 16 DMX  channels you just created.

Here are links to how the controllers are set up. The controllers have been set up the same way for years and never had any problems.

These links would not load photos onto the forums.

Most likely you did not make the photos public.  For us to see them, the photo must be set to public.  We just get a 404 error when we click the links.

Just to give you an overall idea: All of my sequences are set up like this. The imported DMX sequence plays fine. The LOR sequence goes haywire. If I create a new sequence without the DMX seqence, the LOR sequence plays as it should. Somehow the DMX sequence is affecting LOR.

Alphapix is direct. LOR through RS485. I thought it might be the RS485 until I created the sequence without the DMX channels and the LOR portions worked as they should.

How are you combining the sequences?

I run about 60,000 E1.31 channels along with my LOR channels this year and they are working just fine.

Confirming that all your DMX is controlled via E1.31 and you have LOR devices on a separate RS-485 network.

 

What version of LOR and which RS485 are you running? I am wondering if I need to upgrade from Advance to Pro and upgrade to the high speed 485. I had another recommendation that I might need to be on the enhanced network.

I suggested on Monday that one of us get on the phone or better yet a TeamViewer session and we should be able to walk through it far easier than endless forum posts.  I can do that this evening if desired.

Let me know what would work for you. Any help would be appreciated. My email address is marathonvacations@gmail.com if that helps.

With the gracious help of k6ccc we found a simple solution that may help others with this same problem in the future:

 

When creating the sequences, first create your DMX sequence (mine were LMS sequences from Holiday Coro), then create your standard LOR channels. It appears as though the LOR network does not like when all of the above is copied/imported at the same time.
