  1. you were right Dave my mouse must have wandered, dont really pay attention to the left side menu much Thanks
  2. Is it just me or is everyone else getting the same message when the "view new content" tab is hit NO NEW CONTENT ????
  3. It would help if you had a site plan of your lot and house arrangement. Are you planning on any berms or planting beds in the yard area? Are there any existing trees on the lot? at a minimum, run 3/4" conduit to each proposed area. Also run some sleeves under your driveway and sidewalks (and of course keeps record of where they are) I have used 4" DWV or septice pipe. Put 2 under the driveway, one for electric and the other for irrigation piping
  4. Maybe I'm being a little overly cautious with the jump to pixels, especially hearing others failures with water ingress and was wonder if anyone has used the 5050 modules in a "direct exposed" setup. Many of these modules are driving the colors in coro related elements. Was thinking of using these around the windows and garage door. Cost wise they are comparable to the Technicolor pixels and appear to have a stronger track record and sealed very well. Have anyone used them as part of a matrix or mega tree?? http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/LED-digital-module-WS2811IC-5050-3LEDS-DC12V-input-waterproof-20pcs-a-string-256-gray-scale/701799_578798417.html
  5. Did anyone have any water ingress isssues with the square pixels or Technicolor ones?? If so, were you able to correct the problem??
  6. Go back and get them!!! I have been using "indoor" artificial trees for 3-4 years and they are all doing well.
  7. Now that the lights are off for 2013 and the planning begins for 2014, some of us are wanting to take the next step into rgb pixels. I was wondering how all the “early adopter’s that used pixels and strips in this year’s show held up??? Do you mind sharing the good and the bad (and hopefully no “bashing of vendors”) What worked?? What didn’t work?? What was the environment that your pixels operated in (snow, rain, ice…?) What would you/will you change?? Did you experience a “high failure rate”?? (like there is an acceptable standard) How did the Technicolor Pixels survive?? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
  8. I believe that DaveMai is inferring that the 2x4 are not enough of a "balast" to hold the deer down in place against the wind. You'd be surprised the affect of the winds on the ridge of a roof
  9. Will it work?? - Yes Is it your best option - Probably not The wire that you selected is a solid core wire not stranded. It will have a limited amount of bending and flexing before it breaks
  10. Bowen, Looks great!! Where did you get those snowflakes?? What size are they?? LED or incand??
  11. are you looking for incandescents or LEDs?
  12. and will they come down as easy as they go up???
  13. GMAC, looks awesome.... just want I have been wanting... Did all of the lights come with the kit? How much?? How do I / we get a hold of Dennis??
