    Arduino E1.31 GECE controller

    Wireshark explains alot !!! In Xlights you define your string. I defined my string to be 36 pixels which is 108 channels. So when Xlights sends out its packets, it only contains the color data for the 108 channels. So in the code, the 3 reads to get R,G and B colors never exceeded the channel...

    Arduino E1.31 GECE controller

    I think I have figured out the LOR blinky issue. In the original sketch written with FastLED library the author set the parmameters for Channel_Count, Number_of_LEDS and LEDS_Per_Universe. They were based on the amount of memory available. I added a serial monitor to the code and could see...

    Arduino E1.31 GECE controller

    I added a serial monitor to the sketch and can monitor the color change output on my Palm. First there is an incedible delay which I am assuming is the serial monitor slowing things down(?) What i am seeing now is when I'm calling for red, I see 36 packets with a value of 15 (remember GECE's...

    Arduino E1.31 GECE controller

    Thank you for the reply .. Actually that is exactly what was killing me on xlights side of things. I shut down Control Panel and Xlights works like a charm. I shut down Xlights (and even rebooted), bring up LOR and the Control Panel and when I run a simple RGB sequence (2 secs of all RED, 2...

    Arduino E1.31 GECE controller

    [I actually posted this in another thread by Elnino but thought it really was a seperate topic. So I'm reposting in a new thread... Bob ] Using the base sketch from Elnino, I wanted to play with the Arduino and an Ethernet shield. I did get Elnino sketch to work and it works great in Xlights and...

    Another Arduino pixel controller

    Well it took a little while (most of it my own fault... running LOR CP and Xlights at the same time and not realizing it) but I did manage to modify Elnino's script to support GECE pixels. Other than converting library calls, my biggest obstacle was the bit color. The GECE's are 12 bit (4-bits...

    How small do you want your pixel controller!

    Any more development on this? I have a couple of props that would be perfect for this. A Ferrari is great, but its a little overkill to go to the end of the driveway for the paper...LOL .. A compact little controller to run the roof line and the window outlines would be awesome .. Bob

    Another Arduino pixel controller

    Elnino, I know this is an older thread, but I wanted to thank you for the sketch. I have an Arduino Uno and just got in a RioRand Upgraded Ethernet Shield W5100. The sketch compiled perfectly and I have been able to control a 40 count string of WS2811 modules without any issues. I have been...

    Moody Family Christmas Videos - 2014

    Its really kind of funny if you think about it. We fire off the display on Thanksgiving night and on several nights we were in shorts and a t-shirt. The weather here in East Texas was pleasant, it didnt rain on us every night... in fact we only had a couple of nights where the yard grid...

    CCR2DMX Application Available Now

    APPLICATION UPDATE I have updated the CCR2DMX application. I added a checkbox with a persistent value for an AUTOSAVE feature. (Persistent value means it will create a folder in the ...\appdata\local directory to store the saved value. Each time you open the app it will present the last value...

    CCR2DMX Application Available Now

    A lot of us are using SuperStar to sequence our Pixel Trees. Even more are using non-LOR pixels to create the display. There have been many threads on how to create the visualization file using CCR's then sequencing them in SuperStar, exporting them then copying the sequence into the LOR...

    Moody Family Christmas 2013 Videos

    Thank you to everyone for the support and kudos... This year all programming was done with LOR and SuperStar. There is a combination of standard LOR controllers, J1Ssys D2 DMX bridge (This ran the North poles and the Minleon Express AC controller I was given at the Lonestar Holidays 2013 Academy...
