  1. It is, it’s a drop down box on the left
  2. Nothing, I got absolutely nothing!
  3. Im in katy so you wouldn't have to ship we could meet up, do both the cat5 ports work on all them? and its hard to tell are they gen 2s?

    circular tree

    10-15???? lol try 44 now
  5. all those palm trees are just asking for lights, you could create great effects light huge fire sticks with all of them!
  6. I have 4 of the 23x23 trees mounted to the face of my house. My viewing is about 70' from the house on the other side of the culdesac.. viewing is just fine! I actually considered upgrading to the bigger ones until I saw them in person. they would have been huge but the mouth movements were not any better.
  7. I rent my house, and the last one and I've done my show for 5 years now.. as long as you don't damage the house with your lights you should be fine. if you do, you'll have to fix it when you move out.
  8. if you end needing all that SPT1 wire, I can get you 1000' for $135 shipped to you.
  9. Stay off the news, I get asked every year by local stations to do a segment and turn them down. One year they showed up and I politely told them to leave and not to come back. I have had neighbors and friends who know writers for a local small paper and refuse it too. I try to tell everyone keep the news people away. The traffic will get crazy and neighbors get mad and that’s when you have shutdown your show. I just this year created a Facebook page only because my neighbors requested it so they can post pictures and get announcements... but I was hesitant.
  10. Walmart lights, go day after Christmas and they are all 50% off... I have about 80k of these and work just as good as the expensive sealed ones. As matter of fact, the only ones that have failed on me are the expensive sealed ones I bought.
  11. still got some if anyone needs some
  12. I have all my controllers(38) in the garage, I could put them in the yard but its not very big and no place to hid them. I also don't like the look of all the controllers in the yard. I grow my grass a bit higher and it hides all the cords. So all in the garage and run extension cords out under the garage door. I have cut a piece of 2x4 to the open length and it goes in the gap. I do have a lot of SPT1 extension cords to run to my 592 channels, but my yard looks a lot cleaner for it. I can get you 1000' of SPT1 green for $135 shipped to you if you need it, and can get you as much as you would need if you want yours in the garage.
  13. nearly all my stuff breaks down to fit into the black tubs and yellow tops from costco and onto 2 big metal shelving units. my window frames and candy cane spinners go on the ceiling of the garage, my controllers stay mounted on the wall of my garage year round, I did add a lot of bigger stuff this year and I may need to start thinking about a shed... my one big thing I don't know where I am going to put is my 20' tall chicken wire frame I use for the light pole in my front yard.
  14. takes roughly 6-8 weeks, I don't work every day, sometimes just a few hours here and there, usually work about 6-8 on sat and sun if nothing going on... this year took longer because we had so much rain, i couldn't get on the roof or a ladder for 4 weeks. But I do our whole setup, my kids are young and wife likes the show but doesn't help with the setup so its just me and my almost 600 ac channels and nearly 7 miles of extension cords.
