Intermittant fade problem


Recommended Posts

This year I upgraded to 2.6.0 software and programmed a few sequences.
I've noticed a problem mostly on a song that has a slow fade (5 seconds).
The fade starts then sometimes about 2 seconds into fade, everything goes black then comes back on in next cue (after fade).
I am not using LEDs.
What should I check?
I upgraded to 2.6.2 software. And it still does this intermittantly... Watching the show, maybe 2 of 3 times it will do this.
All 9 controllers are 16 channel and have the same firmware version.
I did upgrade computer this year. I'm running xp home almost no cpu utilization per task manager.

Thank you for your help!

Ok, I figured it out.

The problem turned out to be from when I added sign lights to a background show and had all of the channels listed in the "sign" sequence. Every time that 1 minute background sequence would loop (once per minute), it would shut off all the channels (except the signs). It was most noticible during slow fades...

I discovered my error when I stumbled across the verifier. I had never used it before... It told me that I had the channels defined in both places. Very helpful. I removed all the other channels from the "sign" sequence and the "intermittant" problem is gone!
