  1. Funny comments from guests

    My brother once told a friend that "We have a man that sits in our basement and flips tons of light switches on and off really fast"

    Any change you would be doing another set anytime this year ? -Ben
  3. Suggestions for backup gear

    I would invest in a cable tester for your data cables, saves you a lot of extra time troubleshooting if something is not working. Since you are using a director, you probably want an extra SD card per-loaded and ready to run. For me I have spares of the some of the IC chips on my controllers. When I build the kits I socket everything, and keep spares because I have had those chips go bad.

  5. Holiday Coro AlphPix BUG Alert

    Good to know. What exactly is the intention of using Null pixels ? Just reshape the data for longer cable lengths between the controller and pixels ?
  6. Some Elements are too bright

    I am not currently using intensity files. I could if that is a good option, but I don't know how, only that they exist. I use the sequence editor for everything, the stars are dumb (sorry I should've mentioned that earlier). The start controller is a 27 ch dumb DMX from holiday coro, they do not have intensity settings. I know my alphapix does, but it is completely separate from the stars. With dropping the intensity in the foreground, does that effect the entire sequence, or can it be setup to only effect particular channels ? Thank you everyone for your help !!
  7. Does anyone have any tricks for turning down the brightness of certain elements in your displays. I have these really cool stars from holiday coro. But they are way to bright when they all turn on. I have never used an intensity file before. I thought about adding a layer of coro onto of them to defuse the light, but I am not sure whats the best method. Any input is greatly appreciated.
  8. Looking for "It's a Marshmallow World"

    I'd love a copy as well, if not I will work on one and send it your way. bassettb768@gmail.com Thanks
  9. How to stop hanging, red pixels.

    Never with those controllers, but I have had pixels stick. Sometimes I have added an extra wire to ground in the string, and that has helped. Not sure if it would help you thorough. Another thing to check is the power supply, make sure its the correct voltage when everything is powered up.
  10. Looking for a sequence for Despecito song

    I can send you mine from Halloween. Dibblejr did all the faces. If it is OK with him I will send mine over.
  11. I've seen a couple threads for this song, but they are all from 2013. Does anyone have a copy they would be willing to share ? Thanks in advance -Ben bassettb768@gmail.com
  12. Same here if you don't mind. Already getting ready for next year :> bassettb768@gmail.com Thanks
  13. Power Suppplies On or Off?

    I don't unplug any of my gear once the show is setup. Unless we are getting really bad rain or something along those lines.
  14. Just wondering, anyone still use X10 controllers for indoor lights or whatever? With all the new "smart" technology it seems like most of it is obsolete now. Also on the topic, does anyone use X10 in there show, for turning on or off parts of a static display or similar ?
