  1. Hey guys, being i want to start a 16 string mega tree I'm thinking i need 2 350 watt power supplies and obviously a pixie16, are there any case you guys are using that fit all that? I use the HolidayCoro ones like everyone else for the pixies and 1 power supply but obviously I'm not fitting 1 16 and 2 power supplies in that case, was wondering if anyone found a good solution for all 3 in 1 vs having 2 separate cases.... Thanks!
  2. I want to buy a few of these - will these run off my regular pixie4 controller? it says """ Requires a DC-PWM driver for RGB effects (use the CMB24D)""" do i really need a 24 port dumb controller or can i just use the pixie i have, thanks!
  3. thanks guys,,, Im not using DMX, all LOR pixies with the usb to ethernet converter
  4. that kinda sucks in a way, i want 1 flood for over my doorway so i need to buy a 24 output $110 controller to do so?
  5. ok perfect, thanks!
  6. guys, being this is my first year doing this i had a question about the power, do you guys plug in all your boxes and leave them powered up the whole time outside during the holiday season or do you put them on a timer to come on a few minutes before and after you hours of shows?
  7. Makes sense. lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. awesome, thanks
  9. u have fans in there too or just the exhaust vents?
  10. thats a great case too, I like the one I grabbed from Depot, like yours a little bit better though for the quick release to open the door. Are you putting in a fan to get the heat out?
  11. I just reversed one of the fans, once the box was sealed they were canceling each other out I guess by sucking the hot air out, there was no air coming out, so now one pushed air in and the other out
  12. awesome, thanks! ill read up tomorrow
  13. I bought a 6 section, 270 pixel star from Holidaycoro, getting it all setup is fine hardware wise but how are you guys setting up stars like this in visualizer for SS, SE or PE? I tried in VI and then imported into SS but it doesn't seemed to have carried over correct, doesn't layout the program boxes correctly
  14. thanks K6! so theres literally like a Superstar are in the visualizer program? I was looking for something but didn't see anything in Visualizer related to SS
  15. I don't see the harm in just leaving the fan on all the time, I would rather the heat not build up and then the fan have to try and get it out.
  16. yeah no problem, I left all the settings default that came from LOR, I just used the HU to change my unit ID to 0D which was the next channel for me to start at
  17. tested it. all good so far, wiring up the LED strips now so I can plug in all 16 at oncc the fan is 12v ran right to the power supplies so its always on, ordered a second one for the other side to try and keep the case as cool as possible
  18. finally finished, love this case for the tree, should be perfect.
  19. Yes, storage. Lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. mine face up, pulled through and tied down so no matter what i do with the arches during stage the strips stay in place
  21. ok awesome, will do... thank you
  22. I am building a 16 foot high tree and want to use the Holidaycoro 270 node 3 foot wide star at the top my question is where to mount the controller for it, I wanted to leave both the Pixie16 (for the tree) and the pixie4 (for the star) on the ground mounted to a pole or something but will running 16 to 17 foot wires from the pixie4 up to the star be too far? I don't really want to mount the box up by the star due to the weight and sway if its really windy so trying to think of ideas. Maybe I can somehow just mount the pixie4 to the back of star and run the power and ethernet up the pole being I know that will be ok? not sure the length the data part of the cable can run. thanks guys
  23. i use the pixie4's and 16, i think only the pixcon in the LOR series lets you do that
  24. thanks, should i set that in the hardware utility or in visuals?
  25. ahhhhh that makes sense, I am brand new to this as of a few months ago so i did not know LOR pixies were new to market so that makes sense why most of the users have other controllers.... thank you guys!
