    Default Number of sequences in a Scheduled Show

    I have tried running a show on two different computers using Vixen 3 through an arudino mega. I am running 10 sequences in the sequential tab. There is no pattern as to what will play however it will play a few of the sequences then will shut down way before the end time is complete. I have nothing else in any of the other tabs. Is there a limit as to how many sequences you can have in a show? I tired cutting the list down to 5 sequences and it appeared to work correctly. Started in the beginning, worked it way through the list and started over. Both of the PCs I am running it on are using Windows 10 OS. Any help is appreciated. Thanks to all.

    There is no hard limit, but the number is influenced by the amount of memory the machine has. Can you provide the error logs from My Documents\Vixen 3\logs folder? There will likely be some clues in there if it failed for some reason.

    Is there anything in the error log?

    you'll also want to post the application.error log. I was working with another member a few days ago that was seeing the same symptoms. His error log was full of out of memory errors. It's as simple as it sounds. There are more sequences in the schedule than can be held in memory on that machine.

    I think my problem might be the same. I will check the error log later and see what it says. I am running a new machine but it only has 4 G of RAM. I am going to upgrade it today and see if that helps also. As in all computers it takes patience and understanding. I really appreciate your assistance. Will let you know what I find out.

    it is interesting that I ran a 6 sequence show of the same list I have been using on my Laptop with 4 Gig of ram and it cycled through several times and didn't fail. My desktop which only has 4 Gig would not run the same 6 sequences. Not sure why my error log didn't post from last night. Will have to find out why and resend. The only other thing that might make a difference is that my desktop computer uses unbuffered ram which I understand can be quicker but a bit unstable. Not sure what my laptop uses. Will have to check that out next. I got 4 more Gig coming for the desktop so will see if that helps. Will continue checking and correcting. Will hopefully find out what it is so others can be aware.

    Memory allocation is under the control of the operating system. There's a ton of variables that come into play. So it's not at all surprising that two computers with the same amount of physical RAM will have different results. Windows has to allocate memory to the various programs that need it and exactly how it does that is quite complex. It has a lot to do with what other applications and processes are currently running, what order the applications start up, how big of a swap file is allowed, etc...

    Get yourself a rasberry pi and load the FPP software on it. You will be much happier in the long run.
