    Need some help please re CCRs.
    I use LOR16, daisy chained to 2 x cmb24 and 4 ccr. I have configured all units using S4. I also have SuperStar. I run my sequences using a show director mp3.
    So, I set up my 4 CCRs in double arches (half length, 2 arches per CCR).
    When I play the sequences, some of the CCRs don't work at all, some only half the strip works, some are on but only one solid colour, and I'm at a loss what to do.
    Any suggestions???
    Thanks in advance, Annette

    Do not use the show director myself, but I do use CCR's.


    Do they work outside of using the director with just the sequencer ?

    i would systematically test pieces


    get one controller and strip that works completely. connect it and only it and test


    if this one works keep using that controller and test all the strips with it


    if a strip doesnt work or partially doesnt work chances are you have a broken strip. you can fix them by cutting out bad parts or replace the strips


    now do the same with the controllers. use one strip you know worked with the first controller and test all the controllers

    Thank you for your suggestions. I've taken the arches down and replaced them with dumb rgb.
    I'll test them as you've suggested.
    If they are broken, how hard is soldering?
    :)

    it is not really hard but if a pixel is broken you may need to remove it so you loose pixels


    you can buy replacement strips off ebay also


    i stopped using the CCRs because they break so easily
