  1. Purchased 10 Led Strobes. Have them all on one channel. When I have them going off, they are all flashing at the same time, probably 1 or 2 flashes per second. The sequence had them on at 100% for maybe 3-4 seconds at a time at most. Is this a strobe issue, or a programming issue?
  2. Hi All! I'm a newbie poster, long time lurker to the site. Last year I had a static display with about 50% of the elements that I am using this year. The difference this year is that I have jumped into LOR. I have read plenty about the waterproofing/protecting at the controller, but what I am not certain about is how/if I need to consider the actual light sockets themselves. For information purposes, I am in Fort Worth, so we don't get frequent rain, and very rarely do we get snow. My display is 100% LED. I will take all precautions that have been well documented for the controller,
  3. I have 2 channels available where I had planned to do 4 mini trees (2x per channel), all multicolors. I pulled my lights down to see what i have available to use today, and here's my dilemna. My intent was all multicolors and seperate 2x2, but I have enough strands of red, green, white, blue x 100 lights to do each tree. Looking for opinions about splitting the colors as 2x each tree is one channel, and the other 2x another channel, or if the motion is more important. I feel that the motion is probably more important, but i know i'm not the first to have this decision to make.
  4. Rod, any updates that you can share with us?
  5. Have you gotten container information yet? Shipments have to be really close to hitting the water.
  6. Your idea is exactly what I used this year.for my 10ft tree. 5 Gallon bucket from Lowes 50lbs concrete 2" PVC sleeve embedded in the concrete 3 guy wires Once I put the pole in the sleeve, I filled the rest of the bucket with about another 10lbs of sand Worked like a champ. Had some heavy winds in Ft. Worth a few times this season, but no issues at all. If I had it all to do over again, i'm not sure I would have done it any differently at all.
  7. Merry Christmas all! My question is about what to do with my mega tree next year. I built a 10ft tree this year with 36 strands total of White, Red and Green lights. Sadly I didn't plan the placement of the plugs well enough to try to hook up my controller, so its just a beautiful static tree Plus star. Next year my wife wants me to make is a spiral, with the Green and Red strands, and just a single channel of white. My question is, have any of you put a 3 color tree up with 2 spirals and one fixed color? Planning to have 26 channels to control. 12 red, 12 green, 1 white, and 1 star.
  8. I just ordered too. Made a small purchase from CDI last year when I first got the bug. This year, bigger order! Time to buy more controllers I guess.
