    224 Channels of LOR with ~45000 lights
  1. Thanks for the great info! 7 Weeks til Halloween....sheesh....I better kick it up a gear!
  2. So I was at the halloween store last night and my fiancee sees the Webcaster.....the glue-gun looking thing to make spider webs....and decides it might be easier to use than putting up her "traditional" stretchy spider webs (which, incidentally, is the only job she likes when putting up the Halloween display). But at $50+, I'm wondering if it really works or not, if it makes better "webs" than just stretching out the other stuff, and how much of a mess is it to clean up? Does it leave any residue or anything? Anyone ever used this thing? Thanks in advance!
  3. Greetings all.... I will be putting up a 20-something foot tall Mega Tree this year (depending on what lights I choose to use). I have a 25 count string of the C9 strobe lights with 36" spacing. My question: Is there a "best way" to string the strobes around the tree? Do I just spiral wrap the strobes around the outside of the tree lights? Or is there a way that I should weave them in between the other light strings? Obviously, however it's done, I'd like it to be somewhat uniform in the spread from top to bottom. Any suggestions and/or tips will be greatly appreciated!
  4. Thanks everyone....as usual, many great ideas! Always appreciated! And just to explain further for those who had questions, I have two upstairs windows. I plan on plugging the power cords to one controller through 1 of them over the front porch so that I don't have cords hanging down from the roof....and the second I'm running the extension cords from a few light strings into my office, where my show computer will be set up. No Cat 5 worries as I will use a Linker for the porch controller and simply connect the office controller directly to the computer....then to my main linker. Thanks
  5. Greetings All, I have a few spots where it will be easier to plug in a controller inside through a window rather than in the yard. My question is this: Do they make some kind of insulation that would kind of "self seal" around the wires running through the gap in the window and allow me to put the window down against it and somewhat seal the gap from the elements? I'm thinking there has to be something that I can cut in a block to the shape of the bottom of the window pane that I could just slice halfway up the height, kinda bend it to open it a little, slide the cords through there an
  6. Greetings again.... I've purchased a couple "coro lights" and they always send the little metal stakes that slide into the coro and then into the ground. If I happened to be making a few of my own design, where would I find those....or longer pieces that I could cut down to the lengths I need? Thanks in advance. Scott
  7. I don't know if this is a dumb question or not, but someone may know the answer. I, like a lot of you, am patiently waiting for the CCBs. Based on what I've read around the forums, they sound great for what I want to do. I've been making the assumption, however, that they're going to work just like a CCR, but with spaced out bulbs on the string instead of being in a strip. I've read that they will be offered in 50 count and 100 count strings. If everything I've heard is correct, how will one control 100 seperate circuits on one device? Or will we be sequencing half a string at a time (to
  8. Thanks for the tip.....I assume you bring these in every night as there is no mention of them being weatherproof?
  9. Thanks guys....I appreciate the assistance bhays, I was definitely looking at the dmx par can route.....glad someone can tell me that it actually works out. Are there any you've had experience with that I should definitely lean torwards or away from? I'm guessing that they're all going to be about the same, though anything you can tell me about proper wattage would be helpful as I don't want them overpowering the rest of the lights. I've seen some that have 24 1 watt leds all the way up to 48 4 watt leds....I have a two story house and my floods are generally ~20 feet away. Any experien
  10. I was referring to the modules that dmoore was using in his video.
  11. Thank you all. I do believe after watching the videos that I have a better understanding, though it did bring up a couple additional questions for me. Sorry if they're stupid, but this is how we learn, right? 1) I've read that you can have 20 modules max in series. How many modules total could one have on a single power supply? Based on common spacing, the application I am thinking of would require somewhere in the neighborhood of 70-80 modules per fixture, which is why I ask. I don't really like the idea of one fixture needing two outlets. 2)The Cat 5 cable that's wired to the R
  12. Greetings all, I've been reading through all of these posts about RGB pixels and strings and power supplies and controllers.....and I just can't wrap my head around all of the differences and options....mostly from the standpoint of not being an electrical engineer. I understand the science behind RGB....and I understand the sequencing of the RGB, but I don't (and honestly, I don't think I really want to) understand the "how it all comes together" part. I'll be honest, I'm not a DIY kinda guy. I like buying stuff, plugging it in, and watching it work. I mean, I don't mind building w
  13. I dunno.....it shows they have 14 left when I just looked *shrug* Steve, Any reason you can see that it's listed as an "Indoor Use Only" tree? Oh, and thanks for the link!
  14. If you're still looking for the song, let me know Incidentally, my music library is HUGE....so if anyone is ever looking for anything else, I can probably help!
  15. Thanks guys! The stuff at Maya is exactly what I had in mind. I don't really know WHY I want to have shooting flames in my yard, but what the heck....you only get to entertain the neighbors a couple months out of the year....and I promise not to have TOO much fun I will definitely dig around for Brett Hays though...thanks for the tip! As for DMX control, I've been reading up on it, and it really doesn't sound as complicated as I once imagined it to be. Sounds like I should wait to see what happens with LOR's new controller though. Any idea when they plan on introducing it? Seems li
