    LOR XLights Pixcon and/or Falcon

    ^^ Oh and I guess my final 2 cents... on the subject, I am in technical sales, I am a software developer who runs a 30 man support team. Support Sells! How xLights is doing it, is simply having a group of fans, not experts, who can communicate with each other. (like the software ZOOM) and login when they are programming... need a hand/give a hand. No real cost. But sure handy. They also have a group of people who get swag to be part of the UBER group. Such as James, K6ccc, Caniac and more they offer products... it helps promote products and helps incentives those who pitch in, like those just mentioned. Just food for thought.

    LOR XLights Pixcon and/or Falcon

    Well. Its funny you brought this up. I have recently decided to use xLights, and that was after I recently purchased the PRO s5 Software. This isn't a slight against LOR, but I am switching myself to xLights. *** My 2 cents should only be in reference to Pixels and programming*** I am doing it for several reasons... but now that I learned what Pixels are (a lot of research) I rather use the E131 protocol. A lot more parts at more reasonable rates. At the Sale here on LOR I was purchasing $670 for what i was able to buy from Falcon for $320... and it gives me more power and latitude. I could still use the LOR software too. Second, I can not begin to tell you about the support. If you are like me, all year round preparing, the support is awesome. Every night people login and if you have a question, simply un-mute your mic and ask your question, click share of your computer monitor if you wish. If someone is there, they jump on and help. Right now there are 4 people on. I found myself being on there (like now) and just answered a question I knew the answer too (it was windows based and I helped). On Wednesdays they have training and support. Last Wednesday I was logged in for 6 hrs and learned more than a reasonable guy should expect. 10 people logged in with me going over my stuff, giving me ideas. LIVE. IF i wasn't going Pixels, I would absolutely use LOR. NO QUESTION. Maybe S5 is better than 4, and maybe with LOR I could of gotten there, but my learning curve was drastically shortened in 1 night with xLights. I am also going Falcon, I had a team helping. I am going with the Falcon 48 and some receivers that can do over 16000 pixels (costing $15 a receiver x up to 12 ( i won't need 12), and $200 for the Main Card) <<<NOTE you couldn't do that unless you used 50% brightness but>>> BTW, on ZOOM (xLights) the developer of the Falcon himself was there answering my questions. Recommending things, looking at my house on my computer to advise me. Kind of cool. I tried calling to see if I could stop by LOR, seeing as I was going to be in NY/NJ and, I was pretty much told, no one would be there, don't bother so to speak. I think 1 is eager. One is not so much. 1 Is Microsoft 1 is Apple. Just my 2 cents. I expect this will be deleted. And I wouldn't judge them for it. However, for now I am going all in on xLights. And I am a loyal guy... its hard to lose a person like me.
  4. THIS HAS BEEN LOOKED AFTER- ALL GONE. THanks

    LOR Pixie16 Setup

    Some may/may not agree with me. But my thinking is this. I recently upgraded my software to PRO, and I am learning to use Pixels. So, I figured if I have to learn new things, why not learn using S5. So, I am. I am really liking S5, and I have time if I see an issue I think.... HOWEVER the negative is, I still have no clue what I am doing. But imagine S5 isn't the cause of that.
  7. I am glad I found this. Thanks for the tips. So doing this!
  8. Yeah I figure I will be running a lot of power. My problem is the size of my Lawn/Property. I have 2 sides I have to manage. So I will be buying several power supplies. As for the card. Hmm I figure it would be centre with 50' either side of work to do.

    Lil Red Riding Hood Faces Pixel Matrix

    Thanks James. Appreciate it. Loaded it up, looks good. Now I gotta figure out how to do it.
  10. I haven't decided yet, but I think I am 110 feet divided by 16 so one every 6-7' Probably. I could adjust at will of course. I am trying to start mapping out my network now so I can do this. You have time sometime to login with me again, I would appreciate it. (I upgraded the Ram, and it good now).
