    Singing Christmas Trees

    I purchased the 4 coro trees last year and mounted in wood frame. After being up for 45 days in all weather, they held up well. Coro is very sturdy. I know that another vendor has HDPE faces as well.

    Control Panel Dilemma

    Ron, please see the following from Wikipedia in regards to your issue… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_network … It is common for packets originating in private address spaces to be misrouted onto the Internet. Private networks often do not properly configure DNS services for addresses used internally and attempt reverse DNS lookups for these addresses, causing extra traffic to the Internet root nameservers. … As others have pointed out, networking can be a very technical and complex concept. Your home network appears to be 192.168.1.X. Anything on the 192.168.1.X network will remain local (not hit your internet router/modem). However once you move from the 192.168.1.X network (e.g. your 10.X.X.X), and that network does not currently exist, then the route the traffic will take, is the "default gateway" which is your ISP. If your show network is now trying to connect to the 10.X network, and it does not exist, although it is by definition "non-routable", It will still try to find it via the default gateway, which is your ISP. When the data hits the Internet router/modem, although the traffic cannot go anywhere, it still uses data. Assuming the LOR comm listener is always searching for the new network, this will continue until the listener is turned off, you add the network via an addition NIC (Network card), or subnet masking (more advanced). You could also block the traffic at your internet gateway/router firewall (again, more advanced), but can be done. FYI, the "preferred" method in networking is unicast (specific network addressing) which only send traffic to specific devices, vs. multicast, which send traffic to ALL devices. Think of this as sending out an email to a specific user (unicast) vs. a distrobution list or "CC:ALL" (Multicast). FYI, If anyone has any questions or needs assistance with networking issues, please feel free to PM me and I will try to assist where possible.
  9. We run our show from Thanksgiving thru Christmas daily. We don't usually go out of town, 'cause our family and friends want to come here.. : If we do go out, I don't worry about it. The only issues we ever had were weather related, so if I know that a bad storm is coming, I'll shut down the elements which seem to be less tolerant (e.g. the tomato cage trees). Other than that the show goes on. .

    What time does your show start?

    Jaynee, as others have said, start small and build up. We did that. We are at the back of the sub-D on a cul-de-sac, so it's not a traffic problem... 1st year, although the neighbors "liked" our display, the neighbors across the street was like.. "well, it's ok.. we can just feel the bass in our bedroom"... (I wanted to make a comment there but I stopped... they are retired...) :-) Now in our 5 year of animated lights (always had static previously), it has grown considerably, and the neighbors are already asking what we are doing this year, and when will we be starting ? Get them involved, and especially be courteous and understanding... When they start having their friends and family over to see your display, then you know all is well... When they start asking how you do it, and want to do the same thing, then they are hooked... BTW, where in SC are you located ? We are near Savannah Ga... Good Luck and Have Fun !!!

    Importign Effects for Xlights4

    Currently it appears the only methods to import XL4 effects into LOR is either: A). convert the XL4 sequence into a .lms file (which creates a very large LMS data file). or . export each XL4 model into a clipboard format (.LCB) and bring into LOR. FYI, currently XL4 Model groups cannot be brought into LOR, so any effects created in a model group will need to be changed to individual models in XL, or the effects re-created.

    Super. Seems like either will work. Much appreciated...

    Pixel Matrix

    Question on the PixNode Strips... I purchased these to build 6' (360) trees. Spacing will be 4". Any thoughts on using nodes vs. squares ? I am thinking that the regular nodes might not stay aligned in the holes, e.g. pulling on the strip, vs. the squares which would be flat on the strip itself. Thanks.
  15. That helps. I will be using 12V strands, just did not want to over-tax the individual channels which is what is the concern. So with PI, of which I will be using anyway, the Amp Draw would be lessened from the board. I just know that there are theoretical maximums, and then reality. :
