I have been trolling the forum that last several nights looking for my answer, but I couldn't find it.  It's pretty simple so I thought I would ask.  I have about (16) LOR CTB16PC controllers left in the show.  I have been slowly eliminating them each year and adding more RGB as replacements (1000 times better). As some of them are getting older and will need to be replaced soon and since I am using them in DMX via Xlights/Pi with a FPP, I do not want to go that route.  What is out there that I can replace a LOR CTB16PC controller to something direct to DMX with the 110V plug on it so i can keep my current LOR CTB16PC AC elements in the show.  $200 a controller seems like a lot now just to keep 16 channel an AC controller.  Thanks in Advance.  I'm sure someone has done this already!

Sometimes it is just simpler to bite the bullet and migrate everything over.  I moved from AC to RGB over 3 seasons.  I still have some AC props, but generally don't use them or just use one controller (a Lynx Express) that can be attached to a DMX port of an RGB controller.  One of the reasons I moved faster than I had planned was that I did not like the missmatched colors in the display between my old AC stuff and the new RGB units.  ymmv

I agree with this approach. I was 1/2 lor controllers 1/2 falcon last year and it looked mismatched so I decided to sell all of my lor gear and go with just rgb this year.

Minleon sells the Lynx Express controller. Also get with Sean (smeighan) of Xlights, He has some Lynx Express controllers he would part with I think.

Thanks,  that's a good start. I'll check the lynx express controllers out and see if i can contact Sean via PM.

I ditched my Lor controllers for the Renard plus32 programmed to run on DMX.
