  2. I have a pending offer for all three. I'll update this thread if the situation changes.
  3. I have three LOR 1602W units for sale, used during the 2006 Christmas season. Label removed from the front to minimize theft interest. Some slight external scratches. That's 48 channels. Make offer. I could stretch to provide four of these (64 channels), but unless you need it, I'm hoping to hold one back in case I ever get the Christmas light bug again.

  5. What are the commonly accepted 'appropriate' time(s) to turn off the Christmas lights? New years day? Something like the saturday after 12 days past Christmas? What? I'm confused.

  9. I've got an extreme GFCI example. My display is 99.99% LED based, and the power used by 64 channels is so low, it is all fed through a SINGLE PLUG. Then I started running into GFCI problems. The thing, in my case, was that GFCI problems weren't a single channel making it go out. It was the combined leakage of a combination of the 64 channels together that would trip the GFCI. I found this out through a lot of experimentation, trying to isolate the fault. It just wasn't one circuit. In the end, I moved half the display to its own circuit. After that, neither side suffered a GFCI fault.
  10. I've been getting quite a number of people stopping by, but... Yay! I had my first vandal of the season! At 1:10am last night, from bed I heard a very loud shout of "Woooooo hooooooo!" along with a thud or two. I get up from bed and look out the window and see nothing. I go outside, see nothing. Nothing at all! And then... a set of tire tracks through the fescue grass, going from one side of the yard to the driveway. . I assumed it was a drunk coming home from the bar. But I am just a mile down the street for a high school so it could have been a teen. Actually, all things consid

Things just seemed paleand simple.Once I had up all the lights I had planned,I really became excited about the way it would look. The horror, for me, was in realizing that things may not turn out to be as saturated and bright as in the LOR animation window. I ended up putting in a last minute order with Creative Displays (which they filled magnificently) so that I could double up on the red LEDs in the 16 mini trees. But I can understand and relate to the disappointment
