LOR to LE's / LOR to XLights
« on: December 13, 2015, »
I am not running any shows this year but want to move over to Xlights.

When I ran a show I had LOR controllers but have sold those and now have LE's.

Wondering how I set up Xlights to run the LE's and then import my LOR sequences.

I believe the first thing I need to do in Xlights is to set up the Lighting Networks.   I am not sure if I set LE's as USB or E1.31.

For now I just want to be able to run Xlights running LE's with my imported LOR Sequences if that makes sense..... I eventually want to do RGB with F16 controllers with a mix of LEs.

You can run the LE's with the LOR software. That's what I'm doing and it works great. That's if you want, nothing against XLights I just always used the LOR software.

The LE is a DMX device and does work directly on E1.31 or USB.  As far as Xlights is concerned, it is just a 16 channel controller.  What you would need is a DMX dongle or any device capable of generating DMX output.  The F16v2 is a E1.31 device and is also capable of creating the DMX output your LE's will need so I would look into getting one of those sooner rather than later.  I would also look into getting a Raspberry PI to run your show.  It makes fife so much easier to free up your PC for other things such as further sequencing even while the show is running.
