IT LIVES!!!! After several hours of trolling the wiki and more importantly, help from the guys here, I have my controllers working with my old HP laptop. LED's on both boards operate and flash as sequenced.

Now all that's left is sequence 2 or 3 more songs, put up all the lights, run all the cat5 cable, build a sub panel to power the lights and run extension cords to power the SSRs. piece of cake......... Right???? :D

Well after REALLY checking it out, it works with errors. On a couple of channels, like 8 and 9, it lights both leds and continues on so ten is now 9 and 11 is ten etc. happens in about 3 or 4 spots. Any suggestions?

Well don't I feel sheepish. Turns out despite all the posts to do so, I still forgot to change the bios setting for the parallel port to EPP. All is well now. Dang is it really that late? Work's gonna be no fun later today!

You beat everyone to the answers...

Always more satisfying when you solve the little ones like this yourself...

By the sounds of it you are going to be working flat out to have everything completed in time.

Best of luck
