  1. . Thanks .... only took 18 months for some support. I guess it would be better if the support topic was closed or perhaps some kind of update on a monthly basis at the very least. That way people that are new to the VP scene will not get frustrated and waste a bunch of time trying to get free software working. Free is not free if you spend an excessive amount of valuable time to get it working only to find out that your hardware and/or OS are not supported. I am not intending to make anyone mad here, just stating facts and my opinion from my experiences and observations here on this forum.
  2. . . I never did solve it and I know why it happens ... the frontend is doing what it needs to trying grab focus. What I did do was find the .wav file and change it to something less annoying, and low volume. Shortly after this issue I abandoned the HP frontend all together in favor of one that is supported and updated regularly. That was over a year ago and I can say I am completely satisfied with the new frontend
  3. The soon to be released Power Play by Bally 1978. Find the discussion here along with some screen shots. http://vpforums.org/index.php?/topic/28591-Was-"Power-Play"-ever-released-FS?
  4. A month ago I sent a PM and a email to the address provided in post #121. I also visited the website and sent a email there also. I never recieved a response so someone else got my money ... thanks for letting me know how your business is run. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Tapatalk
  5. Well time really flies when your having fun ...or busy. So here is a link to my led light strips and my shaker and gear motor setup ... also some videos showing them in action ... the big video doesn't get going till like the 3 minute mark. My wife was playing and doing a good job. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ndqlmby4j4ioq38/ctjSyt0ZPt Enjoy Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Tapatalk
  6. Things never seem to go as planned in this house ... lol. I hqve not had time to put the cabinet back together yet. I have finished the wiring of the LED strips and I am working on my shaker / gear motor combo box right now. I hope to have some progress in the next few days. I think the LEDs came out very nice and work the way I want them to in my testing. I am using a small 12v battery from a lawn mower to test the strings and my wiring ability. Pictures will be soon I hope. Happy New Year Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Tapatalk
  7. Yes that is correct I cut the strip into many different sections and then wired them together how I wanted them arranged for my undercab and backbox lighting. I have 3 different LED amps running the 3 sections I created. I am still working on wiring it up as the holidays have me doing a lot of other things but I hope to have it finished today. I will see if I can get a video made and uploaded. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Tapatalk
  8. I Have ordered my mini amplifiers and just waiting for them to show up in the mail. How did this setup work for you overall? I will only be using one string of 5050 LEDs divided into 3 different channels of RGB on the LedWiz. I just cut them at the length I needed for my under and back of cab lighting so I have a Front, top channel and a right side channel and a left side channel. Thank you for the wiring diagram also.
  9. Your da man! Thank you Maxx. Very very helpful. Latching relay ... not sure why I thought it was but that was stuck in my head last night. Thank you for your time, Maxxsinner Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Tapatalk
  10. My next question is one that is basic I think but it is taxing my brain late at night ... on the picture below ... the relay, can you tell me if I am correct in what I am reading? Going to the solenoid pictured below .... What is messing me brain up is that the LED Wiz likes to switch the ground side, but does that matter with the relay involved? the wiring will go; LED Wiz >>to fuse >> to relay then relay to solenoid ... is this correct? oh yeah ... also this seems to be a latching relay? There is a diode built in from what I am looking at, do I need another on the solenoid itself?
  11. The pin locations are hard to see but using the ohm meter I can see what pins are connected when the power button is pushed. so I believe that it is just a short to ground, correct?
  12. Well I can certainly understand that as I have had mine out and back in too many times for sure. Unfortunately both TV's go into a standby state when plugged in no matter the state when unplugged. Both TV's use similar control manual boards and using the ohm meter the switches are momentary only just like the PC switch pictured, only on a smaller scale. So using the wire ribbon harness can I wire them to that switch pictured or will there be a feedback issue? I will link the pictures in a minute Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Tapatalk
  13. Mikekim ... thank you I think that is the way I want to go also. That will work for the second power supply for the toys and LEDs. The problem with the PF and the BG screens is that I have to either push the power button physically or use the remotes to bring them out of standby as they do not detect input signal to power on. So I need still address the first question with the switch. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Tapatalk
  14. That is a cool feature ... but for me personally, even just watching the video for a short time ... it got old. With HP in attract mode I would get really annoyed in a short time. Now if the voice was not the same all the time and could be randomized with the different voices that are included in windows that could work. Can't wait for HP 2.0 to "Wow Me" .... any official News ?..?..?
