  1. Oh my - the Jesus is fabulous, BUT the angel is absolutely spectacular!!!
  2. Good to hear! I've never ordered anything like them before, so it's going to be fun figuring out how to work them! Have all you guys in this forum to thank though - as usual! I'd be lost without Planet Christmas!
  3. Ordered our first patterns two days ago, cant wait for them to arrive and getting started!!! Went for thewinfieldcollection and got Santa and Mrs Claus kissing under mistletoe, and Santa kneeling at baby Jesus manger! Cant wait! Had to share excitement
  4. No matter, ordered from Holiday Coro and have a friend forwarding them to Ireland for me
  5. Thats fantastic idea, I can see kids loving it! Would you mind if I looked into doing someth similar?
  6. I had intended to buy mini tree coro from HolidayCoro however they wont ship to Ireland. Any suggestions of companies that would? We are making the arches at home so wiuld prefer to just buy the mini trees. Im aware of the tomato cages method, but prefer the look for the coro trees. Thanks in advance for any help!
  7. Thanks all for your responses - much appreciated! I have printed out, and read through the Guide from Aussie Forum, as well as a user guide I stumbled on on the internet, but I always prefer to get verification of exactly how I go about things, so that I don't order the wrong item by accident Jholmes, thank you - especially the advice given re DMX adapters, seems clearer now! And I had a look at your website, and am now intrigued by RGB Floods - I've read on them before of course but watching your videos, saw clearly the effect, something else to look into instead as we already have five of the window frames strung with clear rope light! Thanks again!
  8. Looks great Gunther!! many thanks to be directed to you also - I remember how helpful you were to me when I was starting out here very late! LOVE the Santa in the big window, he looks fantastic!
  9. Before I begin, can I say I have read boatloads of threads on here and LoR but remain semi-confused by the RGB lighting stream. If anyone has the time to answer, please please can you try to use as much "basic english" as possible - as talk of various nodes, or controllers, or CAT57aB whatnot genuinely confuses me and I'm trying so hard to wrap my head around basic RGB so I know what to order! Background knowledge - I'm living / based in Ireland and this is where I do my Christmas decorations so I'm on 240 voltage. Last year I did my first show using a 16 channel controller and plain coloured LEDs. This year I want to get a start on using dumb RGB via LoR controllers, and the LoR software suite. Q1) If I am outlining eight different windows with RGB rope lights, in relation to a LoR controller, this would take up 8 channels. However, from what I've read, every RGB strip needs three channels - am I correct in thinking this means the eight windows would need 24 channels in order to run on RGB via the LoR Showtime PC CTB16PC controller? Q2) I have read that I need a separate DMX controller of sorts to control the RGB via the LoR controller - is this correct? What cable is needed to do this, and what DMX controller is recommended? I have a memory, of an E-something DMX I think, but again I got a little lost and confused at this part of the research. Q3) I am aiming to do some arches this year (probably four) - and some mini trees (probably eight). Preferably all in RGB lighting. Do I need a number of DMX controllers to have various RGB items on the display, or does one control them all? I hope I've given enough information for what I'm seeking to learn - I know the more information the better, so if I'm lacking any information, please do let me know as I would genuienly really appreciate help with all of this!
  10. I genuienly feel almost moved to tears after viewing that ... what a masterpiece you created.
  11. I've been trying to get in touch with lorislighteddlites lately and have had no luck. I first sent an inquiry via their website form at the start of January. Having not heard back, I sent an email from my actual gmail account on the 16th Jan with the same inquiry there. Today, the 21st January I tried ringing them twice only to have it ring out both times. Are they on holidays / no longer active / or just coincidence??
  12. Have been working on the planning aspect of this for a while now - this was our first year with Lor so I want to make sure we go bigger and better next year! Thoughts so far are; :: buy two more controllers - total of 48 channels :: invest in projector, dvd player & virtual santa :: go RGB dumb strips around windows for more colour option :: set up a winter wonderland scene in side garden - fake snow, winter animals, more trees, etc :: bigger nativity scene in front garden :: buying a number of wire frames from Lordelights, and restringing them here :: have a mega tree made and set in place Obviously loads of work to do as you can see - will keep my spare time busy, and my bank account empty
  13. I'm planning on a section of "winter wonderland" type scene next year in the side garden - I'm thinking trees, Santa on a train, deer, winter animals, etc! However what would you guys suggest for using as a snow effect? Obviously green grass would take from this idea beneath them! I saw one guy in the UK used polyester wadding and it was incredibly effective in photos however would this really withstand the possibilities of heavy rain / wind / snow that we can be prone to in Ireland?
