  1. Thanks! But that's a 2010 video. I would recommend checking out this last season's stuff: http://gordonlights.com/Videos/2011.asp Fabian
  2. Wow, how do simple questions escape simply being answered? Phil was the only one close to actually answering the original question. Stickybombs: Yes, you can drive RGB pixel strings using LOR controllers. Quite well, in fact, as the LOR DC controller makes a very reasonable, well supported 16 channel PWM controller that works with both LOR and DMX protocols. However, as Phil pointed out there are some load considerations to keep in mind. Related to the LOR DC controller: Each channel maxes out at 4A. So, theoretically you could run the RED pixels on string 1 out to about 200 nodes
  3. What sequencing software are you using?

  5. LED Retro bulbs have come a long way. I have spent thousands over the years looking for a bulb that would pass the abuse test. Manufacturers from all over the world kept sending me bulbs to test out and the results were never posititive. Oh, some came close, but not close enough. In 2008 a vendor sent me a new C9 retro to run through my "LED KILLER" testing, and I was very impressed. The manufacturer of those bulbs was Minleon. In fact, I was the one that created this video 3 years ago: The examples in the video used Cool White C9 bulbs and Light-O-Rama hardware and software.
  6. During any given season we'll have at least a dozen or so rabbit/wire related incidents. This year in particular I think they sent out Spec-Ops rabbits, because they knew enough to chew through at the base of the bulb instead of between them so I could fix them. This year, about 2 weeks into the setup we tried something new that my neighbor recommended. It's called Rabbit-Scram. That stuff is awesome, but not cheap. While putting the stuff down three rabbits, that weren't even near me, popped out and took off. I didn't even know they were there. We're now stocked up on the stuff. Yo

  11. Though we've never really done any kind of "display" for Easter in the past, this year we decided to use our permanently-installed, GordonLights-designed RGB floods to create a 3 minute loop that rotates through "Easter-themed" colors. The sequence was downloaded into a LOR DC controller, which runs the lights every night with a more "standard" sequence. Believe it or not there were cars stopping across the street to watch the colors change! We didn't expect that! The photo quality isn't that great, sorry, but I think you get the idea. Fabian
  12. Would you happen to have any photos of them while in use?
  13. I use them for all kinds of things that need to be enclosed. Budget $18 at this point - actual pricing varies with certain market conditions as they exist at the time the order is locked in. Last year came in at about $17.50. Fabian
  14. Actually I do an annual large (group) purchase of Primex P-136 enclosures (http://primex.ca/large_products/telecom/enclosures/P136.htm). The ones I get are the same form factor as the ones LOR and D-Light sells, but they are not made with the fire-retardent material, just straight-up PVC. I'm not interested in a debate over the differences - I'm buying what I'm buying 'cause that's what I use. I've never advertised this before outside my local (Texas) area because I didn't think the reshipping costs would make the deal worthwhile, but if there's enough need in geographically concentrated
