  • 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.

You can run 340 pixels per output but your going to have to inject power downstream put in the start universe and start channel and it will show the end universe and channel on that output example output 1 340 pixels universe 1 start channel 1 end universe 2 output 2 will start with universe3 and end with universe 4 output 3 will start with universe 5 and end with universe 6 hope this helps
  3. Help with CCR -II 16 Ribbon Super Star kit

    Light o rama sells 2 ccr clone type of trees and Holiday Coro Sells one that is cheaper, none come with a star Holiday Coro sells a 6 channel star for the top you would have to buy a sequence and see how the channels are layed out to see if you can run the star off the controller
  4. PAY FOR HELP!!!!!

    IF you used lor last year for sequencing it would be much easier for you as a new person into pixels to use the lor pixel editor , pretty much the same as X-Lights but fewer effects but easy to build a sequence .Are you going to use any lor 16 channel controllers from last year and what type of controllers are you using for your pixels?
  5. PAY FOR HELP!!!!!

    Are you going to use lor and x-lights or just x-lights
  6. if you use smart pixels controlled by a smart pixel controller yes you can make the whole string one color.
  7. Wanting to upgrade to lor!

    As your display gets bigger and it will switch to led's as soon as you can it just eliminates one less problem with power distribution.
