    2007 - 1st Year LOR - 16ch, 2008 - LOR - 48ch!
  1. As promised, after numerous email and phone correspondance with both the distributor, Light Energy Designs, and the manufacturer, Holiday Creations(Diogen), I must share with this great community of Christmas light users that based on my experience with the Net Lights model NL-100, manufactured in 08/2009, and factory code AX, and the LACK of support and service and commitment to their products by the manufacturer and distributors, I should have never of recommended purchasing any of their products or services. Buyer BEWARE! I have kept this very professional with all parties, and no one
  2. I must post an update to the quality of the NET lights I recieved: These are put together with little Green ZIP ties... and they appear to be DRY Rotting and breaking! NOT GOOD! Please be advised about the NET lights. The LED and wire construction are FINE, and are of good quality...but the assembly of the NET is NOT going to hold up to their 3YR warranty! I will post an update once I have spoken to this VENDOR about the problem. I am really bummed... They really LOOK great, color and brightness wise. Mike
  3. Went LIVE last night around 8:30pm...with a couple of annoying goofs! I forgot I had a background sequence in my show for lighting the radio sign from last year. Well this year I used that same channel for the new strobes on the right side of my display. Needless to say, I was being STROBED constanly I kept thinking I forgot to clear out the channels in all the sequences that I reused for the Strobes...So, I went back and edited all the sequences, trying to find the problem...nope! Background sequence... Looks alot better now. Still in a massive state of sequence editing. This year I
  4. Just thought I would echo the great feedback on these companies... I ordered 36 strands of RED LEDs from Brian and they are outstanding. Great Price and Great Service. Thanks! Mike
  5. Just a quick update: I have now recieved my LED net lights from this company and have confirmed that they work well with LOR dimming and such. These lights carry the Holiday Creations brand logo and have a Three Year warranty. They are the sealed, non replacable type of LED. These appear to be a good buy(I hope). Cheers, Mike
  6. Hey everyone... I was in the market for some LED net lights... and found what I believe are some good quality LED Net lights and "Trunk" net lights. I sent an email to the sales manager asking for them to consider offering Planet Christmas members a coupon code/discount.... Here is their response: I did get you a coupon code for your members: 10% off orders of $50.00 or more, and the pass word is "planet". Have a great day!

  7. Ok...I have started! Today I completed the C9's on the Roof/Gutter. These are new this year. I added about 80, red C9's that are the dimmable Retro C9 LEDs from CDI. This year I am also doubling my channels from 32 to 64, so that I now have two colors on each of the items. Also added some strobes. I hear what you are saying about modifying your old sequences to add the new color....it is tough and tedious, but hopefully worth the effort. I also ordered a radio sign from www.holidaycoro.com and I have that completed too. I am replacing my older 4'x8' radio sign with the new smaller coro on
  8. Our Lights are up for 2009! Got them done Tuesday before Thanksgiving...all in one day, with the help of the kids. 3rd year...32 channels....3 new sequences.. about 36 minutes or so long. Merry Christmas
  9. Here is video I got of our lights last year in the snow! Merry Christmas! http://www.vimeo.com/2555121
  10. Hey tistheseason, I have a cabin on Cedar Creek, maybe I will be able to come by your display on my way to check on it this year. Merry Christmas.

  11. Mine too! Got Mine Up last Tuesday...Then a Vista Update took them out Friday sometime :giggle: ...then back up on Saturday Evening! Running now! Merry Christmas!
  12. Thanks for the support! I hope no came by tonight before 8:45pm....I just got home to find two controllers dead because of melting snow tripped the GFCI outlet....Luckly this only took the 16 minis and the radio sign, but now they are back up... Merry Christmas everyone! Cheers, Mike
  13. Yes...I got a late start...but, now I have edited most of my 2007 sequences and added the 16 mini trees. I still have not edited my intro...it is still the 2007 version. I have added a few new songs this year and removed a few. I think I still have 2 sequences without the mini trees. One new sequence is running that has about 95% of the mini tree sequencing added... Let me know what you think! Most of the sequences were downloaded off of lorsequences.com and modified. I have a few that I got from Bill or Holdman's...and modified to fit my channels. A lot of the mini tree sequencing
  14. Ok, Last weekend, on Saturday, I managed to get my outside lights up. I have 3 LOR controllers. Two were new this year. I added 16 mini trees made of flower easles and white LEDs from Sams. Each mini has 180 lights. They turned out great, I think. Now I am busy editing all my sequences from last year, and adding all the new channels. So, if you drive by, realize it is a work in progress this year. Here I am on Lonnie Dr. http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=34.725089,-87.628348&spn=0.009347,0.019226&t=h&z=16 Cheers, Mike
  15. OUTSTANDING! Great work! We all know how much time and effort went into that.... Thanks for sharing... May we get an updated list of components of how you pulled off the custume? Cheers, Mike
