Pixie16D to CTB16pg3: Hardware utility testing on Pixie is turning on lights connected to CTB16 (So Confused)


Recommended Posts

Hello Forum, 

Im super excited about LOR, but an absolute Newbie.....Really hoping someone in this group can drop some quick wisdom on me. 

My set up is this:

Windows 10 --> LOR (v5.3.14 Basic) --> USBRS485 --> Pixie16D (V1-06) --> CTB16Pg3 (V1_11)

The issues is this:

Using the LOR Hardware, it recognizes the two controllers. I have the Pixie set as Unit ID 1, and the CTB set as Unit ID 2. I have RGB WS2811 strips plugged into ports 1 & 2 (100 Pixels each) on the Pixie. I have Incandescent string light plugged into Ports 1,2,5 on the CTB. When test the Pixie (All ports, Port 1, or Port 2) color red at 100%, were good; the RGB WS2811 glow red. But, when Test the Pixie (All ports or Port 2) color Green at 100%, the lights on the CTB also turn on. 

Any suggestions?

Pixie16 will use IDs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0A, 0B, 0C, 0D, 0E, 0F, 10, The next ID available for your CTB16 is 11.

A Basic license that shows in your profile will not run these two controllers, you will need a Pro license.

What Mr P. said is 100% correct. You need a pro level license for a pixie 16... Your basic license only allows 4 ac controllers. Your pixie16 counts as technically 16 since it uses 16 unit id's (one for each port/strip)  Upgrade the license then read the manual on the pixie. They recommend you give it a much higher unit id number. Do not start at unit id 1.
