    Help Needed. Sequencing old style LOR floods.

    Have been given some old style LOR Color Floods with CF2D 10 channel controllers. I have hooked one up and tested it using the LOR hardware utility and it works. When I try to run it using a simple sequence nothing happens. Channel assignment in LOR is supposed to be CH 1,2,3 RGB Flood 1 Ch 4...

    Getting further apart lights still wont play

    Because of issues with my laptop I am now trying to use my PC. I have upgraded LOR software to latest. Upgraded firmware on controller Changed to a DMX dongle.

    Arrgh! It is not comming together

    Sometime LOR tries to open the adaptor five or six times and then goes timeout or hangs.Other times I have to unplug it and plug it back in before it works. Sometimes it opens as a "listener" sometimes as "raw dmx" or "E1.31 on universe 2" if I am testing the arched. But in this case only...

    Arrgh! It is not comming together

    I have tried Da_DMX on the system with no response. Is it that the board is not accepting DMX? Although the firmware is the latest for my PCB16 G3 board is the latest listed by LOR it it is only v 1.12 and not v4 or higher (board i only 9 months old). or a faulty USB adaptor Quite often I...

    Arrgh! It is not comming together

    The blue light bulb is there in system tray. No it was not set to launch on startup but I have set that now. No, the LOR usb 435 dongle does not have any lights . When plugged in it makes the usual tone for a USB connection. I am assuming it works as I can get through to the controller using...

    Arrgh! It is not comming together

    I have two LOR 240v controllers which I would like to run in DMX mode with four 27channel controllers daisy chained. I can detect LOR controller with hardware utility but when I try to run a sequence there is no response. Last week I could run the four 27channel controllers directly of the USB...

    Big Bang times 4 - creating new universes

    Thanks guys, So if it has finally sunk in.... I can use LOR advanced software to run the show. As the majority of cable runs are small (<7m) I should be able to use a single controller, such as a Pixlite 16, pehaps coupled with a "Pixlite long range receiver" where I have one long run of 10 -...

    Big Bang times 4 - creating new universes

    Thanks ecbailey, The 1200 smart pixels was a mistake but I may as well make a plan to use them. The pixel strip was more of a "wonder what this is like" moment. The display space is small being onlyabout 10m x 5m on ground plus cable runs on about 10m to get on roof. Looking into the future...

    Big Bang times 4 - creating new universes

    Thanks i13 I have been working on this since February when I purchased two LOR controllers which were to run a basic 240v lights setup with what I already had but bought more ropelights to go with them. Also built 4 animated Christmas tree faces (similar to holiday coro) using dumb pixels...

    Big Bang times 4 - creating new universes

    Thanks for the replies. I think it is slowly sinking in. One of my problems is that my computer has only 2 USB ports. I have come up with an idea of how to connect but not sure i it is the right way to go.

    rgb leaping arches controller confusion

    Heath, The LDPE tube came from my local ENZED store. I believe there is one in Adelaide. It was sold as "air seeder tubing" so if ENZED do not have it try a rural store who sells/repairs seeders and other agricultural equipment or perhaps an Elders store or Landmark might be able to point you...

    LOR DMX to control smart pixels

    The configuration I hope to end up with is 2 x 16 channel LOR controllers for most 240v light strings the DMX to chain of 4 27channel controllers which control strings of dumb pixels on animated faces and lastly four leaping arches using smart pixels plus a shooting star of smart pixels. I had...
