  1. Where is the link? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  2. I replaced mine this year with Holiday Coro RGB trees. Way nicer and a lot lighter. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  3. My megatree is made of LEDs from Paul. Started plugging everything and discovered one strand of the 64 hung on the tree was upside down..... So I created a quick plug that had a male on both ends so I can power the strand. Will this work? I've not tried it yet, and wanted to get input first. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  4. I have TEN of the 3 foot trees (no lights) white in color. PM me if your interested. -Pat
  5. Yep, you need snubbers, or simply pace one C9 bulb on each Chanel that has just LEDs on it. Do a search for snubbers, they are awesome. Pat
  6. You could (at your own risk) simply remove the GFI outlets just for the season.
  7. I do the same as statman and just use a lor channel.

    Good find. I like using the orange cables to power my controllers then green SPT or green store bought extension cords to run the lights.
  9. I have lots of the red candy canes from Walmart, mainly because I tend to lose the bases nearly every year and have to go out and buy new. So what could I use instead, or where can I purchase just the bases? Thansk Pat
  10. You still lose sever if not all the lights if an LED bulb goes bad, but LED don't burn out like the incandescent bulbs to. I got tired of sections of my arches going out as well and redid everything for this year with LED's I purchased from Paul at Creative Displays. They are good quality and with LED's you want good quality bulbs so they are bright today and 3 or 4 years later. His are Full wave and fade really well with LOR. In you situation with the lights on way up on your eaves, I would highly recommend LED's. When I wrap my arches I wrap 2 sets at the same time, so if there is an issue with a strand the second strand is there to give it light, just not as much light as normal, but better than a whole section being out. -Pat
  11. My house is older and does not have GFCI's, so rain doesn't give me much trouble. Ever considered trading out the GCFI's for regular outlets just during the month of December? I know safety first, right.....
  12. Easy there fellas... Not that your wrong but this poor guy just wanted a nice Christmas Display with out having to learn everything. His plan was to simply pay to have all the programming done and then all he would need to do is plug everything in, sort of like a MR Christmas on steroids I guess. Ed at this point we have to face reality here, you are either going to have to hunker down and learn the LOR software and maybe use a few sequences from a source like LOR Sequences.com if you expect to have a display running this year. There are also tutorials out there that can help you along. Don't forget that Light-o-Rama also has a few free sequences on there web site to get you started, and a few you can also pay for. -Pat
  13. I got lots of Warm White and Blue last year.... And I have to say I love them both but that Blue is YEAH so much more than I expected. My 2 or 3 year old incandescent blue bulbs were no comparison. I'll be in for more this year as well... Great product and great service is hard to find these days... Thank Paul.. -Patrick Chartrand
