    New PixLite 4 losing my settings

    Devo, I agree that it is a very strange problem. I've done some other testing and submitted the information in response to the open ticket. I've tried various combinations of power supplies and my two controllers. In short, the problem occurs when the Pixlite 4 is the ONLY controller on the...

    New PixLite 4 losing my settings

    I did use a voltmeter on both the old and the new power supply. They both have an initial "spike" to around 17.7 or 17.8 volts before setting down to just above 12v, 12.06 for the new and 12.13 for the old. The strange thing is that this only happens when the Pixlite 4 is the ONLY controller...

    New PixLite 4 losing my settings

    It is a 12V power supply from HolidayCoro... item #49. David has replaced both the Pixlite 4 and the Power Supply. I have an older 12V power supply (again item #49) from HolidayCoro... I have not had a failure with that older power supply. One night I did at least 50 power cycles and never...

    New PixLite 4 losing my settings

    The power supply I'm using is a brand new power supply. But, I dug around and found another power supply which is basically last year's model of the new one. In the two tests I've done so far, I have not been able to make it fail with 15 and 20 power cycles. With the new power supply, I can...

    New PixLite 4 losing my settings

    It basically is losing all the settings. Sometimes they are reset to the default values.. but sometimes they have some seemingly random values. There was a question about the power supply. Over the next few days, I will play around with different power supplies and see if I can reproduce it.

    New PixLite 4 losing my settings

    I just last week received a new PixLite 4. Been building light string/strips and testing.. so, fairly frequent power cycles as I never mess with anything with power on. After some number of power cycles, anywhere from 2 to 5, all of my saved settings are gone and replaced with the default...

    Newbie from Texas....

    That is funny... reminds of one of the many departments that I've been in in my career. Had several colleagues that lived in the DFW area. Never saw each other here but always at other sites in California, Toronto or at various customers... shows how small our world has become. I'm off of...

    Newbie from Texas....

    Thanks everyone for the welcomes!! I have already learned so much just reading items on this forum as well as the LOR and PlanetChristmas forums. I received my sample of dumb RGBs from holidaycoro yesterday and my first 16-channel controller and 2 CCR's should be delivered by UPS this...

    Newbie from Texas....

    I'm Andy and I live in Carrollton, Texas, a suburb of Dallas. I've been wanting to jump into this madness for several years now and succumbed to LOR's Spring sale where I bought a 16 channel A/C controller, the generic starter kit (sprung for the Advanced edition of the software) and 2 CCR's...
