One of your shows contains two separate sequences which could possibly play at the same time as each other, and one of those sequences has a particular channel while the other has an intensity file which attempts to control the same physical lights as that channel. For example, perhaps one sequence has a channel that is set up to control LOR Regular network unit 10 circuit 8, while the intensity file attempts to control LOR Regular network unit 10 circuits 5 through 15. In this case, both are attempting to control circuit 8 on that unit. If the two sequences actually do wind up playing at the same time as each other, the resulting behavior on the lights attached to that circuit is unlikely to be what you would expect.
How to resolve this issue depends upon the particulars of the situation. For example, perhaps the overlap is because of a typo in one of the intensity files' settings; perhaps "circuits 5 through 15" should have been "circuits 13 through 15". In this case, change the intensity file. Or, similarly, perhaps the channel's settings are mistaken, in which case those settings should be modified. Another possibility is that one of the sequences might not be in the correct section of the show -- for example perhaps it is in the Background section but should have been in the Animation section -- in which case the show file should be modified to correct it.
