  1. New to rgb Where do you find decent "Dumb Nodes"

    Here is a great place to learn all about pixels and nodes. Lots of good information in their manual. Tom https://auschristmaslighting.com/threads/auschristmaslighting-101-manual.1889/
  2. WOW lights 64 channel set up

    I do my programming a lot like beeiilll said. You have lots of time left. There more you learn about sequencing the easier it gets. I started out with 64 channels my first year, now I have grown to 112 so far this year. The year is not over yet so that number may grow more. It is an addiction. I find that I spend about 1 1/2 hours in the morning before everyone gets up is the best time for me to do my sequencing. I do this everyday. I have about 3-4 songs that are in various stages. If I get stuck on one I switch to another. Don't expect to get a song done over night. You have to make this enjoyable and have patience. Tom
  3. 2018 Spring Sale

    You forgot one thing. Will it be Pacific Standard time or Eastern Standard Time , or Central Standard Time where you live when the sale starts. Tom
  4. Enclosure

    Here is Kevin's YouTube video. Very impressive wiring. Tom
  5. Happy Easter

    Happy Easter to you James, and also the rest of the LOR members out there! Tom

  7. Texas get together

    There is a big get together in Mesquite this year. I am hoping to attend. Tom https://www.christmasexpo.com/
  8. Moving to a NEW Computer

    In sequence editor under play tab is the control lights and control visualizer checked? Under edit tab, preferences, Visualizer preferences is that info listed in there match the com port setting info in the Visualizer? I had a similar issue which after checking the basic trouble shooting it turned out I had to reload drivers for my com port and it worked. Just some suggestions. Tom
  9. Tee Shirt

    I like those shirts as well. I would really like the stein to use as a coffee cup when I spend my hours sequencing. I would buy one if it really was Dan that designed it. Tom
  10. Tee Shirt

    The site said the designs were by Dan Baldwin, so maybe he sells them on the side. Tom

  12. Sign Project

    Glad to see they are renovating that theater. I worked in the shipyard for 23 years and walked by it a lot. Great job on the sign. Tom
  13. 2107 Chistmas Videos Posted

    After going to the LOR YouTube page, all videos are listed there. LOR website does not show them all. If you can't find yours try their You Tube page. Here is their YouTube page : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgbaZk3ISdLGoG7ZqjH5KGQ/videos Tom Here is my video:
  14. 2107 Chistmas Videos Posted

    It is there joopers7. You have to type in the number under search to find it. Mine is 052 Smith, but it only comes up if you search for it also. Why would LOR list them like they did? No one would see it unless they knew your number. How strange. Tom http://www1.lightorama.com/christmas-videos/
  15. I built the 9 foot version that Jerry shows in his video. 1 1/2 turns, 70 ct, 17 ft long C6 strings. I glued the rings together but I used screws for the uprights so it can be taken apart for storage. I also used fish tank tubing on the screws that hold the lights. Nicer than black tape to protect lights. Tom Jerry's video:

  19. How do you keep it fresh?

    This year I am moving things around. I will be adding about 5 new songs. I will be adding a second show to be played after Christmas with some old rock songs and some new. I am trying to get things together so I can put up a 36 ft spiral tree. I have the tower and star but not the controllers or lights yet. Still trying to work through some things like how to make the strands go around the tree and look even without the use of an aerial lift. Since I have a 2 1/2 acre front yard I try to add something new every year without going broke. Tom
  20. strobe light strings?

    Great job! The song is called " I heard the bells on Christmas day" by Casting Crowns. I did this song also.

  22. Best method to video display

    My first year [2016] I used my Samsung J3 phone just holding it while the temperature outside was 17 degrees, not fun. 2017 I bought a drone and filmed it from sitting in my van with the heat on, much better. I can't get my whole display in one view either. Tom
  23. Playing Devil's Advocate

    Well it depends on personal preference, I don't really like the look of pixels so my choice would be the CTB16PC. I did enter the contest there and on the LOR site as well. I am adding 4 more controllers this year so a free one would be nice. Tom
  24. Lights on Koji - 2017

    Looks great. Nice mix of pixels and ac lights. Tom
  25. Links to video

    It depends on if the video was posted directly on here or if it was posted from another source [ Youtube, Vimeo]. Tom
