  1. Thanks Mystic, although I was trying to prevent spending $1000/panel, dont have that kind of $ just laying around unfortunately
  2. I found a set of white wire clear icicles I had but not LED sorry.
  3. What type of icicles? Color and wire color?
  4. I have bulbs I just removed. might have more too but i also have strings i can add them back in to.
  5. http://www.ebay.com/itm/251328330207?var=&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649#ht_45wt_1249 Have these listed here if you see some you want send me a pm on here and I can pull them off ebay and work out a better deal. Thanks.
  6. not sure where to post this just curious if anyone recalls or knows this.. I believe there used to be someone here by the user name of bphantom can't seem to find him on the forums not sure of his full name, if anyone recalls or knows who this was or is can you help me. I need his help with a server he had helped me with, can't seem to get a contact for him. thanks.
  7. 2 years ago when I actually had a mega tree I believe I did 45 strands total 15 red, 15 white and 15 blue, 15 channels total, each color have 5 channels a piece with 3 strands per channel, seemed to be ok for me, tree was about 15 feet tall, will be finally trying to repeat it again this year if time allows.
  8. Going to bring this topic back to life a bit, where did you get those enclosures at Lee? Trying to find them? They look just like an LOR enclosure just with smaller holes.
  9. Sorry. This is the one I watched http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWnS-SwFwrw . After further reading elsewhere the only thing I could find that the "block" is, is like a 10 watt 10 ohm resistor to provide a load on the power supply so it doesn't die? Just needing to know if others did this or not. thanks!
  10. ok haven't had time to look yet but I will!
  11. Ive gotten to the point of getting the power supply out of its case and disassembled ready to wire. My only thing is I watched the video you posted robert and dont understand the 5 volt to ground resistor or something he put in there, did you do that? as stuff I read didn't say anything about that, any idea what the purpose of that is?
  12. I had seen where you posted that before roger and did do the google search I believe I found my answers, Ill try to post back here when I know for sure. Have to get my pixels on order first.. have the controller on its way just no pixels yet.
  13. I'm looking to start first weekend in September as ive got 80k lights and 16 controllers. Will be configuring the controller assignments and making sure all 16 work before they are all scattered across the property am also looking at adding atleast 200+ pixels to the display this year.
  14. 100 counts right? Green Wire? Ill begin looking to see what ive got in those colors I know I packed away some unused blue sets from like 2009. dont know about green and im sure I have clear too.
  15. So ive found some more answers after a google search so far it appears you have to ground pin 14 on the 24 pin connector in order for the power to stay on constantly, it appears though that the 5 volts output has the ability to be able to do about 6 outputs if needed, open to thoughts on this
  16. Hello All, Just looking for some insight here. I have a pc power supply that is rated at 350 watts. Thinking I can just pull my 5 volts out of the 5 volt section of the board and then have the ground wires attached to ground. Looking about possibly having 200-300 Pixels together like so.. http://www.aliexpress.com/item/50pcs-DC5V-12mm-WS2811-led-pixel-node-with-all-WHITE-wire-IP68-rated/1032292289.html With one of the san device controllers. Is this all that the power will take? I am understanding that I have to add a new power line about every 50 pixels or so. It was suggested to me to just buy a power supply but I have this one sitting around so I figured I could put it to good use, any suggestions appreciated.
  17. What Colors do you want/need? I know I still have sets Id love to get rid of.
  18. I knew there was somewhere that had 3 years, It must be you. Thanks for replying!
  19. Anyone know of a good vendor that sells sealed LED's with a warranty that is longer than a year? I'm sick of buying lights with just a 1 year warranty and the next year I can't use them, Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm looking for Purple and Warm White M5 70 count Green wire if it helps any.
  20. Thanks Lee, that video has exactly what I'd like to do, he is a member of the forums correct?
  21. I believe the answer to this is yes but just wanted to confirm im thinking correctly. If I want a higher resolution for this project would I just have to get strips that have a higher number of pixels per meter? For example I saw some that have 64 per meter just wasnt sure if they will do what I want anyone have video of strips in action or anyhing that your putting words or shapes through? Would be curious to see them!
  22. I would also like to say that Holiday Light Express did me good for 2012. Placed a last minute order with them for some icicle lights and they look great! no complaints and are made really well, will definately be trying to get some more of these at pre-sale pricing! As the current LED version I have I am the least bit impressed with.
  23. Thanks Streetrodder for the videos! Your tree looks really good. what type of device are you using for control? Thanks for the information about LOR. I am not sure if LOR would be the best solution for me on these panels I want to attempt to build though. As I need something like the Madrix software that I can possibly connect to my DMX console and send commands to a computer that is on stage somewhere to respond to what effects I want the wall to do. Or atleat I believe Madrix is the software others use besides LOR. Or I may have to look into more of what LOR can do with e1.31 to know if it will give me what I need. I would prefer a solution that is easy for me to get an understanding of by experimenting with it myself. (Which LOR I use for my Christmas displays already anyways.) It just seems like Madrix is easier for making shapes and various images which is what I will be looking for most of the time. Has anyone ordered the sandevices controller kit? If so is it similar to the kits from LOR? I would assume it is but not sure input on this would be great too!
