    I have been sequencing on my desktop and have now copied my show folder over to my laptop and everything seems to be there except the house preview won't come on when I play a sequence. I have selected Auto Show House Preview - nothing and selected House preview in the toolbar - nothing. I got desperate and went through the Resetting xLights back to first install state still nothing.

    I'm sure there is a simple explanation but I stuffed if I can find it, can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Cheers Kev

    Dock all?

    Failing that try running xlights with a -w from the command line

    Solved, that's another small hurdle out of the way. I'm using my desktop with a 2nd monitor to program and just the laptop to run the show, so when I hooked up a second monitor to the laptop guess what appeared on the 2nd screen you guessed it the House preview.

    I'm running late with everything again this year which is a familiar theme and starting to get the rolled eyes and why do you bother comments so I promise next year to get my A into G and start earlier. It's like an old work mate used to say "If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much room"
