  1. The original strings had 150 bulbs (I plan to use 150 pixels) and they were spaced about 3 inches apart. You're welcome to PM me with your other suggestion if you don't want to post it here. -Scott
  2. I recently acquired a snowman from my parents; it originally had 150 clear incandescent lights which didn't work. They were going to throw it away so I offered to take it in and make some modifications! I want to maintain that look of a snowman lit by Christmas lights, but be able to vary the colors and patterns. Therefore, I want to replace those incandescents with pixels. This will allow me to make the snowman a wide array of colors, make different parts of the snowman different colors, and even do more advanced effects, such as having the snowman all blue and then have individual lights twinkle white. I notice that Light-O-Rama sells the pixels in bulbs (too big for this), bullet style pixels, and square pixels. Based on maintaining the look of the snowman lit by incandescent lights, which of the two options (bullet and square) do you recommend I use? Thank you! -Scott
  3. jfuller8400 - Thank you! I really enjoy doing the trailer every year as it gives our Facebook followers a little taste of the songs I've chosen for this year. BYRG - Haha exactly! I don't know how familiar you are with Fresno, CA but food trucks, especially taco trucks, are HUGE in this area. In fact, one of the biggest events we have each year is with our local AAA team (Fresno Grizzlies) and they do the taco truck throwdown where many trucks compete for best tacos. Weather is looking good as well - I'm really looking forward to our event. -Scott
  4. Hello everyone, It's that time of year again! We're all set for our opening night on November 19th, and we're even getting a taco truck this year so people can enjoy food while they watch the show. Here is our 2018 teaser trailer. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RObgroWJXmw Scott J. Davis
  5. @LORAdmin Wanted to make sure you saw this - vendor partners should be accessible. This sounds like a deliberate attempt to avoid providing customer service to me.
  6. Interesting ... their physical mailing address is in Tennessee. Kingston Springs, TN uses area codes 615 and 629, the first of which matches the number I found. Area code 502, in the number provided by LORAdmin, refers to Kentucky. I will be very curious to see which number (if either) works for you. Please let us know! Also @caniac, on their website under "Refund Policy" they list the number 615-378-1431.
  7. Took a bit of searching, but I came up with (615) 378-1431. https://www.yellowpages.com/kingston-springs-tn/mip/christmaslightshow-com-500385207 Let me know if it works. -Scott
  8. Hi Mguinn, I have been told by LOR that the S4 visualizer does not support a feature with more than 50 pixels/bulbs. I personally agree with you in not using Pixel Editor or Superstar so I am curious if a workaround has been found on this. My guess is that you'd have to create a separate feature, but you'd also need to match the way that the CCB-II controller handles the channels. I know with the Mark I controllers one pixel string was the main unit ID (with 300 channels), and the other pixel string was the main unit ID plus one. Does the CCB-II controller do the same thing (but with 600 channels per string), or does it actually separately itself into four Unit ID's? I am using two 50-pixel strings on my mega tree this year but next year I plan to use two 100-pixel strings so I am definitely interested in learning more about how all this works. I have been told that the S5 software (which was announced - I believe - almost three years ago) does support the longer pixels, but it still hasn't been released to the public due to what I have been told is technical difficulties. There is a beta version of the software available, but I am not going to base my show (or even my programming) on a beta version of the software. I am interested in getting in touch to share thoughts on this issue and would love to chat by phone if you're interested - send me a PM if you are. Thank you - I hope this does help a little bit at least. -Scott
  9. Great job, Brian! Your display looks amazing and I love how your house is visible from more than one side. I also absolutely love your song choice - I thought I knew all of the instrumental TSO songs but somehow I missed this one. Will definitely have to incorporate this song into a future show. Well done!
  10. Great job! I really love the spiral tree - can you give me some tips on how that is done? My daughter watched the video with me (she's six) and she was loving the pink tree too! Nutrocker is definitely one of my favorite TSO songs - I love how they go from their usual classical/rock recipe to the jazz solo section. They may not have known it at the time but many of their songs were MADE for Christmas lights! -Scott
  11. Thank you! The mini trees and floods were new additions for this year. The mini trees are only about 11.5 inches apart so they really make a statement with certain patterns. And the floods with their RGB versatility give me a ton of options when it comes to colors that aren't red, warm white, blue, and green like the rest of my main lights. And for the record I LOVE your nickname on here - great electrical pun. Very sparky!
  12. Good evening everybody, I'm proud to present the complete video playlist for my 2017 light show. It took about 250 hours of total work and it was totally worth it. I'm particularly proud of what I've been able to achieve in just two years - I don't accept donations of any kind, so everything you see is funded 90% with my own money and 10% with money earned from labor I have put in. When sequencing I put a lot of attention into the various sections of the music and trying to make various sections of my yard "dance" to that music. I'm really happy with the outcome and I can't wait to see what it looks like next year (which I've already started sequencing)! Thanks for watching! Davis Family Christmas 2017 Playlist
  13. Thank you! I really appreciate it. If you need any help with the Baby It's Cold Outside sequence file (for the timings or even my effects), PM me with your E-Mail and I'd be happy to share my sequence if you think it will help. -Scott
  14. Correct. I put quite a bit of thought into this as I did start on Black Friday last year. Basically, I decided that if I put all this time, effort, and money into my display, I want to maximize the amount of time I use it. I also used the same lights (though different color combinations) to do my Halloween display. The RGB floods really helped me with this due to their ability to do the yellows, oranges, and purples. I plan to post a video of that once I get around to recording it :-)
  15. Thank you, B.R.Y.G. I'm really happy with out everything is turning out.
