  • Christmas 2017 countdown has begun. Most people reveal their displays the day after Thanksgiving. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.
  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.

Holidaycoro 6 Channel dumb rgb star use with purchased sequences

Recommended Posts

This is my first year with controlled lighting and I have started with the purchase of a 12 strand mega tree and 6 channel dumb RGB star all purchased from Holidaycoro. I purchased a sequence from them also and in the sequence description it stated "use with a 6 channel dumb rgb star requires sequence adjustment." I have got the tree ribbons going but can't figure out what changes to make to get the star going. I have emailed and called Holidaycoro, without success. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. By the way I am using LOR 4 software.

If the channels for the star are regular lights you have to convert those channels to RGB    Holiday Coro has a video on how to convert the channels

I too am just getting into controlled lighting. I purchased 2 singing Christmas trees from HC. I purchased 8 songs with sequences and I can't get them to work at all. Im running LOR S4. Every time I try to play the sequence I get an error message that there is no data. I've watched hours on hours of videos and I still can't get anywhere. I have created my own small sequence and can get it to play so I know the Trees themselves are working properly. Any help would be appreciated.

The sequences that you bought did you change the channels to match your setup.

I started that last night. I didn't change them in the Sequence I purchased. Im copying the Sequence over to the base sequencing I had already started. Trying to match the channels up is proving difficult. I can't get the music to run at all so I don't even know if Im in the right ball park.
