  1. This year I doubled my facebook page likes and my traffic has been steady since. Here is how I did it.

    1. Make a good video of your display. Make sure the audio and video quality are top notch.

    2. Post the video on your facebook page asking your fans to share it.

    3. Promote the post on facebook, this will almost guarantee that all of your Facebook fans will see the post in their feed. I chose to promote to fans only because friends of fans seem to get me a lot of junk likes.

    4. Make sure you have a commercial in between your songs that says something like "Thanks for stopping by, please find us on facebook by searching for Christmas On Sunset.......blah blah blah" etc etc

    When I did this I had over 300 shares and according to facebook there was an estimated 143,000 people who "could have: seen my video on facebook. In 2 weeks I received 400 new likes and my traffic has been steady ever since.

    Good Luck

  2. figured this is the best place to put this

    was just wondering if anyone had pictures of how they attached lights to side of house. been leaning more towards sections of electrical conduit on top and bottom then just running the lights up and down with a 4 to 6 inch spacing and attaching with zipties.

    does anyone have a beter idea? any advise will help!

    The conduit is how disney does it. I always try to copy the pros.


  3. any one ever hear of the 15 foot rule? I had one guy tell me that I can use #8 wire for my

    100 amp christmas light sub panel, its about 4 feet from the main panel. I didnt do it, i used #2 (had it laying around). i was just wonder if thats true.

    He is absolutely correct about the 15 foot rule. The rule states that if you use the wrong size wire you should stand back 15 feet and watch the fire! ;)

  4. I am thinking about building an antenna like the one discussed here. http://forums.planetchristmas.com/showthread.php?t=23446

    This year I am adding a 12 mega tree and I was thinking about mounting the antena to the poll. I would like to mount the antenna inside the mega tree, not on top so I am concerned about any interference that the strings of lights may cause because I will be using 140 100 count mini light strings. Has anyone done this before? What kinda of results did you get?



  5. It looks like one of the three wires goes directly to the first bulb that you are holding. That is positive. Trace the other two and see where they go. If one leads to the end of the string then that is a neutral.

  6. Hello,

    I thought I remembered someone talking about being about to turn up the broadcast strength. I opened it up and found two places to adjust. The first is on the face plate and the second in on the board. Can anyone help me?

    The first one is to adjust the contract of the screen. I am not sure what the second does but I am curious also. Hopefully someone else will know.

  7. I have a plastic Moravian Star, I want to replace the single incadescent bulb and with 12 Red, 12 Green and 12 Blue LEDs. I want to be able to control each color with a channel of my LOR board. I plan on using either T1 or T1-3/4 LEDs. Purchasing a LOR DC board is out of the question becuase I am already over budget. Does anyone have a schematic that I can use to accomplish this???

  8. Search ebay for Bussman Power Modules

    On ebay there are two 60 amp models priced at $1750 but I found a like new, 100amp model last year on ebay for $40 + $50 shipping. Basically what it is is a large disconnect switch that can be thrown manually or you can wire a fire alarm into it and when the fire alarm goes off it will automatically disconnet the power. I think it could be easily adapted for your use.

    I have looked around for other solutions to the power hookup and am not finding many solutions. It looks like the only other solution is a 50 amp mobile home harness and receptacle. It looks like 50 amps 220v is the most that these types of connectors will handle in the non-industrial world. This would give 100 amps 110v available and probably way more than I need at the moment. Still, better to have excess capacity than to need more. Guess for this year I may have to go this route until I can find one of those 100 amp connectors at a reasonable price. Anyone else have a solution for getting power to your mobile power station without hard wiring?

    I used cam-lok connectors. You use a connector for each conductor of your input. There are 125 amp and 400 amp versions and they cost me about $120 for my setup.


  10. I am the latest customer of the Demented Elf and I have to say that I am 110% satisfied. Kevin was very easy to work with and worked quickly too. Once he delivered me my voice overs he was very easy to work with to iron out the last few wrinkles(all cause by me of course). I would recommend Kevin to anyone looking for any professional voice over work.

  11. I feel for you, I've learned to keep my xmas light addiction in the closet so to not annoy my wife too much. Don't get me wrong, she loves the lights but she cant take more than a 2 or 3 hour a day conversation. Good luck and just remember that your addiction will not get better EVER!!!!!

  12. From my understanding it is 100% approval for everyone. I would send an email to support again and maybe even point them to this thread and see what they say. Maybe it is a glitch in the new system.
