  1. Very nice display again this year Big J! moving this summer to TN, so last year for lights on our house in NC. Because of that, I have not made any additions this year...not looking forward to redesigning everything
  2. how are you running the RGB mega tree? what type of controller? I had an issue when I went from S3 to S4, my internet port quit working to connect to my RGB network switch. Can you ping the RGB controller from the computer? Also, check your network settings in the new S5. My guess is you are missing the network for the RGBs in the new S5. as for nothing working...ensure the LOR Control Panel is loaded (the little blue/red light bulb). It has to be off to get the hardware utility to work, but re-enable your show after you are done.
  3. Excellent idea! They can break down easy for storage and wont short out strands when wet like wire frames...who wouldn't like less GFCI trips?
  4. The little C7 flicker bulbs don't do well in cold weather and are usually packaged as indoor use only. They just cant get warm enough to flicker in the cold. I have DIY posts along the road that I use them in and are fine for warm evenings in NC. An option for a flicker is to use LOR and a normal bulb. I use orange or yellow in the pumkins. Then run a repeating program to create a candle flicker. We do this for Halloween for all our blowmold pumpkins in the yard and it looks incredible. We have well over 20 pumpkins and started by spliting 8 of the LOR outputs to multiple pumpkins.
  5. Chuck....I always learned a lot from the PC Magazines. I would love to see em make a comeback. Second, why not advertise on the companies that advertise here? Ask them to throw up a splash in return for free advertising on PC site? Everyone knows hanging out here too longs leads to big online shopping carts at the lighting vendors!
  6. fantastic! Can you provide the details on the fire, sparks and stage lights you are using?

    It is a PC link that has been commented on daily for over a week so not sure why you can't open it.....working fine for me. Try this link to the craigslist ad I was referencing. https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/dak/for/d/blowmolds-for-sale-blow-molds/6443988204.html

    While taking down the Santa Sleigh and reindeer....saw the GFP stamp....sad! also got me thinking...we have all this Coro stuff for RGBs, but there are no blowmolds designed to fit the pixels. I have gutted previous blowmolds to convert them over to RGBs.
  10. We did a pretty good one a few years back...My dad sent a deercam so we could find out whose cat was crapping in our yard every night. After the great phantom Fox Crapper was solved, the boy got a great idea to set up the deercam in the house to catch Santa on Christmas Eve. We had the deer cam snap a photo of the fireplace (make sure you set the clock appropriately on the cam and on the wall ) Kids are more perceptive than you think. Luckily I caught that mistake during production. Download the photo off the SD card, then go online, I think they have apps now too, and put Santa in
  11. Very nice...I would like see the specs on the tree too....how hard is it to program those snowflakes?
  12. I purchased cyber link powerdirector software this year to get my singing pumpkins "synch'do" up and it worked very well. It isn't free, but I don't remember paying over $40 for it and downloading it. The only negative thing I found online was it is a memory hog when running, but I haven't had any issues on a 5 yr old desktop. I am using it for christmas to incorporate my virtual Santas projection on top of the songs and to chop up movies...i.e. Hot chocolate clip out of polar express.
