  1. Neighbors

    Yeah first thing that my jaded mind looked at. It just appears that there are still some nice people in this world.
  2. Neighbors

    Just had a knock on the door a little bit ago from a neighbor that I had never met before. They told me they wanted to thank me for my lights and handed me a bottle of Jameson. Totally blew me away!
  3. 50 watt flood not working

    UPS delivered my replacement Flood on Friday night. Got it hooked up yesterday and everything is working like a charm. Merry Christmas everyone!
  4. 50 watt flood not working

    Well put a trouble ticket in and they had me open it up and reset the unit. With the reset the unit was able to run its test pattern. Put it back together and HU would still not recognize the unit. Next thing I know I get another email from LOR customer service advising me that a replacement unit was being shipped to me. Kudos to LOR they stand behind there product. Also thanks to everyone for there input
  5. I bought the flood during the spring sale and I placed the flood in my display on Dec 01 and it worked fine till the 10th. It seems now to be completely dead. I pulled it from my display and ran it by its self in HU. HU does not recognize it. Any thoughts?????
  6. controller issues

    Really sounds like a configuration issue to me also. Did u go into HU and assign each controller a separate #
  7. My brain is about to explode and I know it is something simple I am over looking. I decided that I would run my Pixels on an AUX this year. So I set up my 3 CTB16's on com 3 as units 1, 2, and 3. I set my pixie16 as AUX 4 and 50 watt floods as AUX 5 and 6. I can get either the CTB16's or the pixels to work but neither together. Thanks for any help you can give me
  8. I built a 12 foot tree using the kit from https://www.boscoyostudio.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=2_4. I used a steel pipe instead of the recommended fence pipe. I also used a three channel star from http://store.3glightingcreations.com/24-3-channel-star/'. It is threaded and will screw onto the pipe. It was super easy to assemble and raise by my self.
  9. S0 I want to do two singing faces with pixels. Would I be better off with two Pixie 8's or one Pixie 16. since they would be mounted fairly close together distance from the controller should not be a problem.
  10. Building pixel tree

    First you need to decide what spacing between lights you want to use. My experience is if you want nice graphics is 3 inches minimum. Using strips from Boscoyo https://www.boscoyostudio.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_6&products_id=2&zenid=nc1go8lo27f4a06gk69c3tcni1 you can make your spacing in one inch increments. So for example if you have 50 pixels per string x a 3 inch spacing your actual useable string length is 150 inches.Using the link I sent will calculate the rest of the measurements you asked about. Boscoyo also make the topper and the cable kit to put your tree together. That's what I used last year and it was perfectly adequate and I was able to put everything up by myself. Key h = Height of center pole L = Average Length of Light Strand C = Circumference of base of Mega Tree r = Radius of Base(Edge of base to center pole) D = Diameter of Base Fill in any of the known information below **All units should be the same. Ex: Feet, meters, inches. DO NOT PUT name of unit in box, just the value! Quantity of Light Strings for Mega Tree: Fill in any 2 of the following: Average Length of Light Strings: units Center Pole Height (h): units (must be at least 1/10 (.1) unit smaller than string length) Radius of Base (r): units Diameter of Base (D): units Circumference of Base: 338.18834988805 units String Spacing on Ground: 21.136771868003 units

  12. Mega tree pixel mounting strips

    I used Boscoyo for my bullet pixels on my tree. They worked great. Just be prepared to have some sore hands from pushing the pixels into the holes in the strips.
  13. Pixie16 & Config

    Dibble, I am not the most tech savvy guy but I can tell you that I ran my pixel tree last year without any problems using the Pixie16. My tree had 16 strands of 50 WS 2811's. I ran 2 350 watt 32 amp PS, one to each bank of the pixie16. Only problem I had was that at first I had my network speed to slow. Once I upped that everything ran like a charm . Charley
