    Default LOR and Vixen

    Since this topic seems to be popping up more and more these days, I wanted to get a general post about how this would be done, what you can do, etc!

    <<note, I do not have LOR, or a LOR board - so this is done purely off reading>>

    To control your LOR boards with Vixen:

    First Step: Create a custom CAT5 cable, you will need either a XLR to CAT5 or a custom CAT5 depending on what dongle you choose to use.

    The DIY Controllers use the USITT reccommended CAT5 spec, so a custom wired cat5 is necessary.

    From the looks of things lately we may even need an LOR forum.
    Thanks,

    I think that some of the LOR users are starting to realize that weíre not a bunch of geeky people (OK, maybe some of us are).

    Our controllers are no longer just a bunch of relays and wires anymore and you donít need to know programming.

    Now they can wonder over to the DIY side while retaining their somewhat more expensive hardware that they currently have and try their hand at creating the hardware themselves.

    I'm a living example! I lurked around PC and here for a long time before deciding I wanted the go the "easy" (but expensive!) way and get some LOR controllers last season. I have now seen the light and will probably sell off my LOR controllers after this season once my Helix is 100% and I've proven out my RenSimple controllers.

    I started off with DIY hardware, moved to LOR a few years ago, and am now expanding my system with DIY hardware.

    Wasn't there a Jim Beam ad series like this? ;)

    What's LOR, short for Folklore?
    HA, somebody else is putting up my lights this year.
