  1. I didn't look all the way through this thread BUT A kit74 - 8 channels cost 39.99 vixen = free LPT - cable 10.99 Solution - bout 50 bucks PLUS no soldering and only a basic understanding of electricty needed. This was how I started, it was a great intro to the hobby and I highly encorage others to start this way. PM and let me know if you want to know how to do it? Slink
  2. Yes doug, repling to my own post: http://www.pira.cz/rds/show.asp?art=minirds_encoder Has anyone did this? I could use some help in connecting the DB9??? I'll also check over there
  3. I have been here in a while - BUT - Last time I was here there was a RDS addition to the FM25. I bought the parts 2 years ago and now want to add this function to my display. Here is the kicker I can't find it on here now I searched RDS and came up empty. Does anyone remember the thread? I think it was piraz or something, I have parts and no idea where to connect them =P Oh and hey everyone long time no see!!! Slink
  4. Looking to buy the Video. Does anyone know where I can purchase just that video? Thanks Slink Edit - Sorry the Bob Rivers one.
  5. very true, I gave up on plugs to much work just wire st8 through Slink
  6. Per cord - so for using them as inputs from the wall powering your boards. Prolly not good. but you could use them for the 16 channels going out to the display without issue. Unless of course you are utilizing all 15amp on 1 channel. but I don't think you are running you AC off on of your boards. Slink
  7. Didn't take long to get a reply from them but it doesn't look like they are going to adjust. I asked as an individual so maybe he'll cut the folks here the .06 if we can arrange a run on the cord again? anyways here their reply: We had ran out of the one stock and when we received it again from another source the cost was higher and we had to adjust as well.

    Yes sir you are correct. The limitation comes down to the software driving it. Vixen may have fixed that. You'll have to check with them on that. Slink

    kit74's are relay systems, google it i used to get mine for about 39.00 a board. with these you don't need SSR or any thing else. you run 3 parallel boards you use vixen you use a inexpensive FM broadcaster and you'll have 24 channels for about 150.00. here is a kit (also called a 1601) http://www.electronickits.com/kit/complete/elec/ck1601.htm here is a link to explain how to use it: http://www.spiffomatic64.com/lightshow/ Now Vixen will allow you to use 3 of thee with just a basic parallel plugin. Here is the free software that will drive your light show http://www.vixenlight

    Yes! But I don't know about that LOR box. You can (on off only) control up to 3 kit74's with parallel cables. You will need to have 3 cables though (note: the max a computer can take.). You then can use vixen with no problem. This is how I started out way back when. If you need more information on this PM me and I'll hook you up. Heck I think I might even have a complete system with FM transmitter laying around. Slink

    Sounds like CC hasn't taken into account the amount they ar going to be paying for all the stores to warehouse there goods because they don't want to discount. It is what it is, I haven't gone to a CC in about 15years, but one of my friends said he went in to look around. He found a 2 gig thumb drive for 60.00!!!! he laughed and walked right out the store. I don't even think he made it to the TV section. Slink
  14. I just looked at the classes . I am already signed up for 12 units this semester, gotta love using the GI bill!!! that is a class I am adding to next semesters to do classes! Slink
