One of your scheduled shows contains sequences which could possibly play at the same time, but which each contain a channel representing the same physical string of lights.  For example, perhaps the show contains one sequence in its Background section, and another in its Musical section, which each contain a channel for Light-O-Rama unit 3 circuit 7 on the regular network.  Since sequences in the Background section can play at the same time as those in the Musical section, this is a conflict.

 

The show, and its sequences, will play at the appropriate times, but the two channels may fight for control over the single string of lights that they are set up to use.  This may lead to those lights behaving in a manner that you are not expecting.

 

It is suggested that you use the Sequencer to check whether the channels are set up properly - for example, perhaps the unit ID of one of the channels was mistakenly set to an incorrect value.  Otherwise, consider removing the conflicting channel from one of the sequences, or moving one of the sequences to a different section of the show, where it could not be played at the same time as the other sequence.
