  1. Thanks for your comments. I hope the 8 strips from LOR are the same at least. I bought them because I thought better quality from the major retailer (and I did get them cheaper from a authorized LOR seller). Thanks!
  2. Hello, Before I spend some money I thought I would ask if anyone already knew. I have LOR dumb strips and I need to buy 2 more. I was wondering if I bought a couple from an Ebay seller would the colors match, would they look different, would you be able to notice from different brands. Do all strips basically look the same in terms of color??? I know all strips aren't created equal in terms of quality, but before I spent money to test to see if they match, I thought you guys might save me time and a little money. I assume they would be different as there is a huge price difference from
  3. Hello, I too, have a RGB power question. I am using the LOR dumb strips and floods next year. I was hoping to reduce cost by using one big power supply such as the 350 watt Lee suggested above. Would that work using 8 dumb strips and 5 floods from LOR? LOR suggest a 200 watt for each (8 strips or 8 floods). Thanks!
  4. I just need a few more strands if anyone is able/willing to help me out.
  5. Thought maybe someone may need a very few extra lights I am not using. 8 strands of Green Incandescent from Walmart - used one season on mini tree - 100 count. 8 strands of Red Incandescent from Walgreens - used one seasone on mini tree - 70 count. They all worked before I put them in individual bags. As is - No warranty. If you would like them, send me an offer. I was thinking $10 plus shipping. I was hoping to Bless someone who may need them. PM me.
  6. Thanks everyone! 350,000 LIGHTS!!! and 53 controllers!!! I will heed your advice ChristmasJunkie and start even earlier than planned. I did double and added a mega tree. I am in Tennessee and weather is terribly unpredictable. Thanks again!!!
  7. Hello All, I have read posts that some of you are setting up your Christmas displays NOW! I understand for the sake of time that you have to start early and give yourself time to troubleshoot, check and re check. But my questions is: Is there a concern of wear and tear considering your display is outside for 4 months (september to January) rather shortening that time by erecting your display closer to show time? You guys with the mega displays need 3 months to set up and check? Now this is my second year. Last year I used 50 channels and 5000 lights, and this year that has doubled to 102 c
  8. The CDI website says 4.8 watts for the red 5mm 100 count strand. Does different colors have different wattages?
  9. I was adding wattages to calculate amps for power distribution and I noticed the WalMart 50 count strings are 4.8 watts per string and the CDI 100 count strings advertise the same wattages. I was just curious as why the difference. I would think the 50 count WalMart would be half of the wattage of the 100 count strings instead of same wattage. I know the CDI strings are full wave and higher quality, so does that answer my own question? Or does different manufacturers just do things different. Would someone give me some insight. Thanks!
  10. I have 30 sets of red incands and 10 sets of green that I bought from Target that I will sell cheap For all 40 boxes $50 + shipping. I was gonna post them on here soon. They are Phillips brand 100 per strand.
  11. Hello! I need a D-Light USB to Cat5 dongle. If anyone has one to sell me I would appreciate it. 37172 PM me or email ibewill at comcast dot net.
  12. Hello, I would to buy 5mm red, green, and warm white LED strands. 70 or 100 count preferably, but will take 50 count. Preferably full wave, but willing to use if not. Please PM me if anyone has extras to sell. Paypal only.
  13. Thanks everyone! I was unsure if this was done frequently, considering this is only my second year. After your comments and a lot of searching on the forums, it is fairly wide spread. Thanks!
  14. I used Aurora last year, and I had many issues. I am not sure of the future of Aurora. I think he is working on a new release but it was suposed to be released before last season. So I was thinking of trying more mainstream software. Thanks.
  15. Hello! I have D-Light controllers, and I want to switch to LOR software. What do I need? Is there still shimmer and twinkle restrictions/incompatibility? What software should I buy? Any information would be appreciated.
