    Color changing Led light suggestion

    The GE Color Effect are just one opiton if going with smart c9 pixels. HolidayCoro sell their version as "Brillantbulbs" and DIYledexpress sell their own version but don't remember what they call them. $40 or so for strings of 50. HollidayCoro also carries some nice c9 mounting strips versus using individual clips. Both of these are U.S. dealers and both have winter "pre-sales". As far as pixel controllers, the LOR line ofPixie controlelrs is basically a plug and play options. They have 4,8 and 16 ouput version where each outlet can handle 100 bulbs, I believe. The other option is going the E1.31 route with ethernet cableing which has it's own learning curve but provides much more output cabability. Night do a thread title search by "c9" and do some reading. Sure there will be thread on smart c9's.

    Color changing Led light suggestion

    We all have started from scratch and had to learn everything. If you could commit to LOR sequence controlled C9, there would be more definative recommendations. YFor LOR, you would need to decide on either d;umb or smart bulbs which means controlling a color throught a string versus controllering each bulbs color. Smart versus dumb, different controllers. So if you're not interested in buying additional controllers right now, then some "stand alone" strings that were mentioned (HD link) would be a likely choice.

    Pixie4 only works on nodes not strips

    confirm that you are wiring up the correct end since data flow is only in one direction for smart pixels/strips. If 2 or more strips are not wirking has to be either wire connection issue or strips setup in controller. If you're only folling with 1 strips, uess there's a chance the strips is not working.

    Baby Shark Lms Faces Pixel Tree Matrix

    I'd appreciate a copy. mkpageler@comcast.net
  5. I'd just plug the 2 controlelrs into one circut and see how it goes. I initially had 2 ctb16's and 2 cmb24's on one circuit and worked fine during the warmer halloween season. One it got colder for christmas, started to flip the CFCI and had to break up into several circuts.

    Sequences songs etc

    Sent you some for Triller. You generaly have to buy the mp3 song from itunes, amazon, etc.. To be able to use shared or purchaced sequences, you will have to get up to speed in Sequence Editor, in being able to copy/paste certain channels from a shared sequences into your sequence channel(s). For examply, you copy 4 channels from one squences that will fit 4 channels in your sequences. Basically, copying channels that will match up to one of your display elements. B eing new, I would concentrate on just a couple songs for halloween. Get some SE experience with halloween, don'[t wait to turn your attention to christmas sequences. Good luck

    Pixel Tree or Matrix Halloween Sequences

    Member "james moris" is sharing many singing faces and matrix sequence sfor both halloween and christmas. If you do a thread search by post started by "james morris", you'll find them. If her doesn't respond to this thread, PM him with a few popular song that you want to try. Believe his tree matrix is for 16 strings. I imported on into Pixel Edition to see one in action and he does nice work.

    FS: 2 each CTB16PC Gen3

    While AC controller can still play a part in displays, they are ;not in demand like they use to be. As a result, sellers can't get the crazy used porices they use to get or demanded. With price of new warrentied CTB16's during LOR sales, IMO, $100-002 is a fair used price for non-wqarrentied contgrollers. People forget, LOR's warrenty is for the originial purchaser.

    WOWLights Sequences

    As far as this thread, don't think anymore is knocking WOW's sequen ce, just that there are options in buying/building sequence. From a bigger perspective, as a forum for eduction and info saringo, reviews and opinions on companies, and products are a valueable of "educational" forums. Happens all the time when people ask about sources for hardware/components. We shouldn't be limited in offer up only LOR sponsored venders. Staring xyz's sequences are a great value but not as tightly sync'ed as abc's sequence which cost 2x but are tighter sync, is for some, useful info. I have stated as such in past threads.

    WOWLights Sequences

    Irregardless of where you get sequences, you will have to copy/paste channels to match your display elements. While 1/2 of my singing faces sequences have been purchase, much of my non-singing sequen ces have been built from several shared sequences. Just start a thread with a song or 2 that you would like. There are so many good folks on this forum that will share sequences. M

    Re-installed software

    I've had SE and Network Preferences screens work eratically after installing first ver3, then ver4 on 2 new computers. I never had isuses on install LOR software on XP machines but all kinds of issues on W7 machines. Standard LOR fix was to run their "registry clenup tool", which didn't help . Tried some other popular registry cleanup tool but in both cases, had to do a "system retore to start over, which fixed my LOR issues. For Network Preference iisues, LOR also had a fix file for a specific registry issue which did solve the issue. You might want to share more on specific screen issues. You LOR's standard "fix" was to run their "r
  14. For a U.S. dealer, might check with diyledexpress.com. Sent them and email and ask them for their best price on such a large order. Kind of depends whether they have stock ready to ship or needs to get more from China. Question with dealing with anymore directly in China, is how good is their warrenty. Are they going to just credit you for a bad string/strip or require you to send it back. With shipping back to China out of this world., that;'s really not an option.

    16 Channel Sequences?

    Don't limit yourself in requesting only 16 channels. Read the following thread for reasons why. Requesting Sequences
