    Thanks for all the great suggestions....
  5. Extension Cord for pixels

    I make all of my own cords for my Pixel's and use 18/3 cording. 2500 Ft. with no problems. just make sure you water proof everything. Rob
  6. That's what I use. The photo below has one on the right wall of the enclosure about half way up. The fuses are right below the stub of conduit and the ground strip is below the fuses. One of my projects for this year is to completely rebuild the power distribution in this enclosure and get rid of the 1/4 inch glass fuses. It was what I had available when I built it, but I really want to get away from the glass fuses. I also have run out of room and need to add another load or two when I move one more DC controller into that enclosure.
  7. Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    I usually go to Menards or home Depot and pick up the grounding blocks that they sell for electrical panels I think the small ones go for like five or six dollars.

  9. Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    I have the OLS once in one of my pixie controller boxes for when i had to power inject a ton of [Foul Language Used], they work great. I don't know why i didn't think of those on the screen i just but, ill use on my next one, a lot easier then all the tiny screw from the distro8's i bought and maybe this to run all the grounds to - https://www.amazon.com/Terminal-Ground-Distribution-Block-Kit/dp/B00X326A1K/ref=pd_sim_263_6?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00X326A1K&pd_rd_r=TPEJG5C9SQ251DRC6H70&pd_rd_w=dcs2T&pd_rd_wg=4DtDJ&psc=1&refRID=TPEJG5C9SQ251DRC6H70

  11. Best method to video display

    I too have a wide, low house, so I shoot from across the street and from left and right closer in. I put the camera on a tripod and leave it running unattended for the whole show, about 2 hrs, if the battery holds up, with a small radio playing just so I can hear which songs are playing. Then I edit it all up into separate songs and replace the audio with the original audio file.
  12. Extension Cord for pixels

    It should work fine if the cords are fairly short. Anything longer than 15-20 feet and you may start having data corruption issues. Longer than 20' I suggest you used twisted pair (cat5, cat6, ethernet). I use 1 colored wire for data, the other 3 colored wires for +5V or +12v, and the 4 white wires for ground. I sometimes used 18/3 extension cord wire for power injection. But cut off the 120 volt plugs and use some other kind of plug. You don't wanna accidentally plug the pixels into 120 volts!
  13. Best method to video display

    My first year [2016] I used my Samsung J3 phone just holding it while the temperature outside was 17 degrees, not fun. 2017 I bought a drone and filmed it from sitting in my van with the heat on, much better. I can't get my whole display in one view either. Tom
  14. Best method to video display

    Very nice camera work and editing too! Awesome display! I tried taking video from the car, on a tripod with the external speakers turned way up.😂 I give up! Lol
  15. Hi all - big redesign of my house this year so letting go of some that I know will no longer fit. I started them all as buy it now, but "make offer" is enabled. I am paying for US Shipping in these listing. 16AC 1 16 AC 2 PixCon San 1 San 2
  16. Best method to video display

    Mine is also quite wide and there is a tree that makes even the drone method not work well... I have not done that much with shooting video of my display, but several years ago a friend shot it from four locations and edited it together. Take a look at the first video on: http://newburghlights.org/Videos.html
  17. Best method to video display

    I have a drone but I also video with my phone ( Galaxy Note 8) on a tripod. Takes great video... I would ask your neighbor if you could film from their porch.
  18. Playing Devil's Advocate

    Well it depends on personal preference, I don't really like the look of pixels so my choice would be the CTB16PC. I did enter the contest there and on the LOR site as well. I am adding 4 more controllers this year so a free one would be nice. Tom
  19. So with it being my "break time" after all the decorations are put away (ok..well mostly put away!), I thought I'd get some input from y'all. Let's assume for a moment that you had a basic 32 channel Light O Rama AC controller setup (which I do) and you entered the video contest on Wowlights (which I didn't). Which option would you choose to add the most impact to your show? According to their website, these are the prizes: Winners will receive your choice of Light-O-Rama CTB16PC 16 channel light controller (value $259.99), WowLights Dumb RGB Controller (value $289.99), or WowLightsIntelligent E1.31 RGB 4 Output Controller (value $299.99). One day when I figure out how to actually video my display I might enter these contests 😂
  20. I found it very difficult to try and video my display. Unless I hire a drone cameraman, what methods have y'all employed to best capture your display. My display is just too wide. I'd have to stand on my neighbor's porch to capture it! 😂
  21. Santa and I Know It Faces

    I would also love a copy mcas_4380@yahoo.com Thanks
  22. As far as I know, LOR only has a 32 bit version.
  23. right now I'm only pushing the 1 panel so its 162 universes, I'm running straight out of my laptop (powerful year old win10 64 bit) to a Netgear 10/100/1000 router to the BBB. Maybe using 2 BBB's for the one 54 panel setup would help? plus LOR reads as 32bit, can that be an issue too that I'm running 32bit on a 64bit OS? I doubt it but i did just notice that
  24. I know I asked this over on the FPP forum, what is your networking configuration?
  25. Thank you anyway, you're always a big help and i appreciate you replying right away! Maybe someone else can chime in on converting more easily for LOR to play videos and best file sizes do LOR doesn't choke on them
  26. Never done anything with video in LOR, so no I have no recommend.
