  1. Alphapix vs Falcon?

    I am switching over to server power supplies.
  2. Pigtail Tee

    I do not believe there is such a thing, what are you trying to do with it?
  3. Alphapix vs Falcon?

    I would not listen to anything Brian, he obviously has no idea what he is talking about.. There is a reason everyone prefers the Falcon over the all others. The Falcon F16 V3 is $200, expansion board is $50, 2 PSU's $70, that is only $320.
  4. Powering a pixel mega tree

    I will be getting one of those spider webs from James, however mine will be 8'x8', using dumb nodes, 12 outputs.
  5. Powering a pixel mega tree

    I could see running the power directly from the power supply with an inline 20 amp fuse, but the wire would need to be 12 gauge, however , no way does the power run from pixel 1 to pixe 324 and stay anywhere near white. Last year, i ran 300 dumb nodes off one SSR, no power injection, at 75%, on all white, the last 100 nodes were way off white, almost pink.
  6. Holiday Coro AlphPix BUG Alert

    With the issues i had this year with my 6 cough cough 8 cough 2, i am going to get one of those pixel controllers that has wings.
  7. Smaller Pixel Controlers

    Depends on if your willing to go wireless, specifically ESP modules. You can get a single output controller that will run up to 170 pixels and it will fit inside a piece of 1-1/4" thin walled pvc pipe.
  8. Holidaysequences Support Sequence

    I have to wonder where these guys are. Have not seen them on here in almost a year, they hardly update their facebook page, and have not answered any emails lately.
  9. Holiday Coro AlphPix BUG Alert

    Not surprised you ran into these issues. Not surprised you did not get the support you need.
  10. Boscoyo Spider Web

    So, i need t create this psider web in viz. I am not making it smart pixels but rather dumb nodes, i tried using the LOROC, but i can not assign a string to each ring or line. any other way to do this besides tracing it in the visualizer by placing individual bulbs 324 times?
  11. Boscoyo Spider Web

    Boscoyo has created biz files for his props,but they are for xlights and they all use smart pixels. This prop for me will be 36 channels, 18 outputs. Reason I want to make it a prop is so I can visually see it during sequencing.
  12. Fire at LOR

    Ya beat me to it.
  13. How warm does a SanDevices E682 get?

    I do not have a camera like that, but this last year i used my thermal gun, small red dot, our ambient temp at the time was about 45, hotes i registered was 75, full on white. The PSU's got up to 90 however. This year i plan to put in a vent with a thermostat hooked to a fan.
  14. ANy thoughts to creating a way to sequence P10 or P5 panels using SS?
  15. LOR controller and other brand

    WHAT???? I can build 2 24 channel Renards, in enclosures with pigtails for the price of 1 16 channel LOR controller. I have no idea where you got your information, but you were lied to.
  16. Matrix panels Sequencing

    Bump, hoping for an answer
  17. Plywood Castle

    Thats cause they are made here.
  18. Plywood Castle

    Oregon, i get them from a bargain yard, they are one sided.
  19. If you are willing to go wireless, there is a far better way. I have converted several of my props that use Dumb nodes over to an ESP controllers controller. I will send you a message with a link to the controller so as not upset the admin here by promoting an non LOR controller,
  20. Plywood Castle

    I get MDO for $25 a sheet here. Try and find a bargain yard, Do not use MDF, MDF is for indoor use only. Look for single side MDO
  21. Plywood Castle

    Take it from me, i build Sheds and greenhouses that are built to stand up to the Oregon coast, use 1/2" MDO, also knows as sign board, we use this as a siding on some of our sheds. Very very resilient to the weather, and thanks to its smooth finish, accepts paint very well.
  22. Sequencing roof

    In order to use the new S5 pixel effects, you have to have a Pro license, i am not paying for a pro license seeing a show i do not use LOR to control my show, i use FPP and Xlights.
  23. Sequencing roof

    Thinking about upgrading the roof outline and fence line to smart pixels for next year. Messing around in SS, can not seem to figure out how to get a chase around the whole roof. 490 pixels, starts at lower left corner of the roof and goes all the way around. When i bring the Viz file into SS, on the grid, i get 170 pixels, then 150 pixels then another 170 pixels. I can not figure out how to make the lights start at pixel 1, jump to pixel 490, then back again. Christmas 2018.lee
