  1. HI All, I had a conversation recently and someone suggested to not use designated Icicle pixels for the Boscoyo Bicycle strips. Instead just use a regular pixel strand and loop through each icicle. Has anyone tried this?
  2. Thanks Orville, a friend used GE's C7-9 and liked them.. I am just now headed towards the RGB so I am really nerveous about set up. a lot of people are pushing Xlights for software and going e1.31

  4. Here is a picture of my general layout I did this year, The house sits about 100 ft from Mega Tree @Orville I've looked at Ali Express.. been trying to stay with LOR but not against more learning and going out @TheDucks Do I need to upgrade the LOR 485 to the High speed, I have been looking at Ali Express for the pixels as the cost is half will that make a difference? I also have another 16 trees on side yard (left side of Picture and not visible) so that would be a additional controller CBD16 Controller in addition to Phase 1 & 2, we will also be adding
  5. HI, Moved to a new home and new layout in progress. Phase 1: Plan on installing RGB pixels Icicles up on house using the boscoyo strips. 7.5 ft=15 drops of 7 pixels per strnd, 12mm holes(I have 280 Ln Ft) . and about 800 RGb C9 pixels , and approximately 180ln ft of pixels for windows and garage door trim Phase 2: 4-RGB Arches 2- 6'6" RG Mega Trees Will LOR pixels fit? Boscoyo icicles and arches What controllers to use ? Who uses them? and if not what do you use? DO I use 485 or E1.31 I currently Have (8) CTB16 controllers full in

  7. HI All, I moved last august and threw my plan out for RGB conversion for 2019. I struggled getting show up but made it. Now a new home and new layout in progress. Plan on installing RGB pixels Icycles up on house using the boscoyo strips. 7.5 ft=15 drops of 7 pixels per strnd, 12mm holes(I have 280 Ln Ft) . Will LOR pixels fit? Who uses them? and if not what do you use?
  8. Yes all sequences are LOR edit files, I was able to unistall new version and went back to 4.4.2. I am now updated sequences based on all the changes made at new home where props /lights are located. 3 down 5 to go! I still have one controller on 150ft length f com cable not communicating.
  9. Ok uninstalled 5.3.10 I have 5.2.2 or 4.4.2
  10. Hi all just updated software and now it is not recognizing all my controllers and channels. How do it get it to recognize them? Yesterday I had come port issue. Now I just want to edit a couple of my sequences and is there a way to use old version? Tutorial? Or Can I just load in my 2018 show? Thank you
  11. Hi All, I moved to a new location and with that I had to reshuffle my design. I have set it all up (lights and controllers) and moved the controllers around and they are no longer in sequence, They have power and Cat5 cable from lap top all the way around to last controller 8 - 16 channel and 1 RGB Flood Controller. The first controller(C1) I tested works fine. All the other controllers will not turn the lights on when I test. All connections are good. Do I need to Readdress each controller in sequence? your help is always appreciated. Thanks,
  12. I am still stuck planning contrillers vs power injection
  13. 2nd page has the cropped side I have C7 & 8 , are you suggesting a C9? What if I put a controller on the top Ridge hanging on Exhaust Vent? Yes all controllers are planned under the eve at locations indicated P1, C1 for example. a drip loop most definitely, the eves ate 24: overhang.
  14. TheDucks, I am using 10 icicle drops of 7 or 70 pixals per 6.5 ft which seems to be standard. I will have to cut and add as needed to fit the edges. in my attachment I have a table showing the c9 & pixal count
  15. Icicles - Hmm... I wan to control each pixal and what color Zones: I try to keep the lights controlled by zones -just followed LOR suggestion, no other reason other then- for storage always 12V - limit power injection if possible
  16. Hi All, slow planning progress. I modified the roof line to show: Ridge rgb bulbs(blue) Icycles edge(green) 4 Zones dashed lines power outlets possible Controller locations Light string counts bulb counts pixal counts Now to figure out what I need to control and power them . Your comments and help is greatly appreciated Roof light count.pdf
  17. MrP, it is around 757 C-9 for the ridge lines , and about 2200 bullet pixels for the gutter/edge lines. Now how do I calculate that to power supplies and controllers to Run off LOR is the question
  18. TheDucks: I only drew the ridges and edges, no valleys drawn on this particular one. We getots of rain so I need to make everything as water tight as possible. This year I struggled with accumulative grounds. I plan on adding a sub panel and 8 separate circuits . I plan on 4" spacing on the ridges.
  19. Thank you for commenting, My roof is visible 360 degrees, so it looks bare without it all done(though I currently do not have it all in LEDs 25% blank) Yes a friend recommended the GE lights and he is transitioning as they are no longer available.
