  3. I don't know, you gonna be able to travel that far? 😀

  5. if you are still sharing i would love a copy. Thanks in advance alex.patricio27@gmail.com
  6. My Halloween is a mix of rock country Halloween
  7. So excited to hear that it's in Vegas this year! Definitely going to stop by and check it out.
  8. Yesterday
  9. Any videos or directions on how to hook up one 50 amp power supply to a pixie 16 for both banks thank you Blair
  10. 2 wire cords do not have a Green. On SPT the RIB is common (white). the other lead is Hot (Black). When you make up Vampire (or any other cords) The Rib goes to the WIDE PIN or silver screw.
  11. It's on page 12 of the manual: http://www1.lightorama.com/PDF/CTB16PC_Man_Web.pdf
  12. I guess the word "ANIMATION" threw me off then. You must be talking sequencing.

    When I test it, it is plugged into a live NON GFCI outlet, since it is wired with a 3 wire grounded cord to be plugged into an outlet to power it. So there is nothing plugged into the GFCI itself when tested. The one I bought stated it was weatherproof and corrosion resistant at the time. And I've taken it apart out of it's outdoor weatherproof box to make sure all contacts are still tight and haven't had any corrosion issues with it or the wiring ro it. Just took it apart after Christmas tear down and everything still looks good.
  14. I want to convert my several CTB16PC 16 black heavy power cables/pigtails to SPT1 or SPT2 wire with vampire plugs. Getting rid of the weight and stiffness of the black three prong pigtails. I have already removed one power cable with a jumper in the controller. All LED lights used. How do I handle the common/ground (white/green) wire issue? Where do I plug them in on the board? I have seen a photo of the conversion somewhere on this site. Can't find it. Thanks
  15. Yeah, I will be adding more , got plans let's just see if I get there. Just got three 5 foot art trees that are flocked, those will get three channels each ,multi,a solid color and pure white . they will be in front of the garage door , in front of those I have planed a motorized "Believe" sign that would move from flat to vertical then back to it's housing, that will be lit with leds and made from coro, will also have floods . I found a geared drapery motor with adjustable stops that should do the trick , well at least I have a year to figure it all out. Waiting for spring sale itching to build yet another controller kit, and maybe a RGB flood system. This past year I bought a bunch of lites from Earle Talley , they can be seen in my display on the four trees I added for 2019, four art trees three channels each with multi,solid and pure white on each tree-Thank you Earle ,everyone loved them. I am still trying to wrangle the thrift store where I bought the 6 foot wire snowflakes for the other two . I re lit the ones I used this year last spring with new white and then blue. This year I added blue nets to the front drive hedges so it is multi then blue 2 channels. the day after Christmas I was at our Wally world at 5:45 AM to get the blue nets at 50% off for the much larger hedge along the drive way . There will be 18 sets of multi and 18 sets of blue on that one hedge. Well that's so far ,the year is young! hehehehehe David
  16. Hi, I would also like a copy. I would like a copy sent chuck_christmas@comcast.net I agree to not sell or share this sequence with anyone. This request will be used for my private, personal use on my show only. I also understand the mere fact of making changes to the borrowed sequence and pasting it in to my sequence does not make it mine to share Thank you
  17. JR: Thanks, it would be great if you could send me an LED version. I appreciate your help. Dennis
  18. It would appear that the OP is not asking about pixel based trees, but rather traditional string based trees. So depending on what else is in his display, the Standard license may be fine.
  19. The point is with all those pixel trees that you are wanting to run a Standard license will not run all those pixels. First you will need to upgrade to a Pro license to run those pixels and that will also give you access to PE which will help with the animations.
  20. 21:00 was Show OFF time. I need my beauty sleep and I sure don't need monsters at the door after 9. I get Grouchier 😕 The day after is rip out the stuff that does not get used for Christmas and store that. Next, I adjust placements of some controllers and retrieve Xmas props from storage and start by testing each in a place where repairs are easier before hauling them out to the yard.

    The Test button is a "Must Trip" value. (and the test should be performed with no other loads attached to 'protected ( including downstream) outlets. as their leakages might otherwise help trip an under performing (fail) test. If you don't have Access issues. Put the GFCI inside and wire it to the 'Outdoor downstream outlet (BTW They now have corrosion resistant outlets for outdoor locations at the bigger Home stores
  22. You can animate with the free demo version. The attached pic, shows with the little movie strip, it pulls up the animation window. That is the animation I was intending to be used. https://www.dropbox.com/s/g7hdjyxsegxwx9f/animation image.JPG?dl=0
  23. When I was doing Halloween I had 67 songs, played every night from October 1 through Oct. 31. Since the DST stuff got moved, it doesn't get dark here until around/almost 8pm at times, so I usually ran mine from 7:30pm-10pm Sun-Thur and 7:30-11pm Fri/Sat. Halloween Night it ran until Midnight, But doing both Halloween and Christmas is now too much for me. So now it's only Christmas for me, and this year I'm creating an after Christmas show that'll start on the 26th of Dec. Also for Halloween I had a lot more songs that played in the off hours times as well. I think had around 300-500 Halloween themed type songs, perhaps even more. I lost count somewhere around 500. Do the same for Christmas, but don't think I have up to that many Christmas Songs yet {but I might, haven't counted them lately!}

    Yes, dielectric grease. As for the GFCI, test button still does its job. It is only used during holiday times, so it's not out in the weather but only for a few months of the year, and the outside outlet it is plugged into is also protected by a GFCI in the house since that outside outlet is on the bathroom/master bedroom circuit. Outside one when tripped only affects the display area and all that's plugged into it and the extra outlets that it controls. So it's still 100% functional. But I am planning to replace it this year in 2020 since it is basically 10 years old. But it still functions per the test button. Almost forgot, I know the output is 5VDC to the light strands on the RGB Controllers, but they still plug directly into an 120V AC outlet to power them. So I figured that would be a portion of the full load on top of the CTB16PC's since they all are powered by 120VAC and all my CTB16PC's use the dual cords as well.
  25. Your CCB controllers use a DC power supply which effectively stops any AC leakage path at that point. For the CTB16's your treatment of those light strings (didn't you say you treated every bulb socket with dielectric silicone in another thread?) really helps. Capping the ends not so much, but again using dielectric coats the metal and keeps water from coming in contact with the electrical contacts. Water is the enemy here for false trips. You also may have a GFCI outlet on the upper end of the trip point range (6 mA). I assume you do test it using the built-in test button on a regular basis to make sure it is still functioning. If it is still the same one since 2010 it may not be 100% functional. Here in Wisconsin my average outdoor life for a GFCI is about 5 years. It contains electronics, and those circuits can also corrode and quit working or change sensitivity over time due to moisture intrusion.
  26. I like to run my Halloween show to get 3 weekends in before October 31st. Like James, take down starts the next day for Christmas.
