Put my pixel strips up for their 2nd season. The failure rate is unbelievable. I thought I could sneak my lights up early while the weather was still warm (not technically allowed in my neighborhood). I was going to use them for "Halloween". However, now I have to take at least half of them down for repair or replacement. grrrrrrrr These pixel strips and controllers are from Holiday Coro. I have sections, bad strips, At least 1 bad cord, and 1 bad controller (another controller I had to re-wire last season - poorly wired by HC). Grrrrrrrrr I barely have enough time this year to put the display up, not even sure I can complete new programming in time, now I have these issues. I'll start some diagnostic analyses of all of the issues tonight.
I'm just sharing this in case you want to read it. I am adding two larger arches to my display this year. After countless evenings viewing the light show last year, It was decided to add CCB arches on the right side of my show. I purchased four ten foot pieces of 1" pvc (THIN WALL 200PSI stuff) at Lowe's. Home Depot did not carry it in my area. The thin wall stuff is more flexible. I glued a one inch UNION on the pipe ends so I can take apart the two ten foot sections for storage. After the glue dried for a day, I attached two sections together for 20 feet. I hammered, three foot rebar, 3/8", into the ground vertically (plum). I placed the pipe on the rebar and bent the arch over to get an idea of the distance the legs should be apart. I settled at eleven feet apart. Which gave me a seven foot high arch. I took one of my CCB LOR strands and used Holiday Coro's Bulb Mounting Strip to mount the bulbs (easy, peasy)! Then I placed the mounted bulbs at the top of the arch at the UNION, between bulb 25 and 26. I zip tied the mounted CCB's and ended up with too much pipe at either end exposed. So I cut one foot off of each end leaving one foot above the ground to the first bulb for snow and so the local dogs do not pee on my expensive bulbs. So 18 feet is the final pipe length giving an arch of six feet high, eleven feet wide. The bulbs will be mounted in a vertical or upright position and removed each year for storage. Don't want to break these babies! Good Luck with your arches. Ask any questions and have a great season!
Ok, Here's my dilemma! I have purchased the Holiday Coro CCR Clone. My problem (question) is how do I connect this up to my LOR System, I have LOR S3 Advanced. From what I was looking at on line it looks as though I need another NIC Card (network adapter) in my PC, but my PC has no slots available for a second NIC card. Is there another way I can connect my DMX stuff to my PC for use with LOR?
