  1. Sale?

    Still no update on my order
  2. CCP-2

    Does anyone with LOR know when these devices will start shipping? I noticed today that the "shipping at the end of September" message is no longer on the website.
  3. Sale?

    I haven't received any shipping information and I ordered on Aug 30th. But I did buy some of the new CCR2 controllers so thats probably why.
  4. Pixel Software Question

    I just didn't know if it would be an issue since the pixels would be on the matrix in an "S" type pattern. I think with 25 pixels wide and 8 pixels high I should be able to make decent effects for the first year and then next year move to a mega tree. Yea I have already thought of this but I would buy a much larger license to cover myself for next year and beyond.
  5. Pixel Software Question

    Would the actual matrix sequencing be difficult in SuperStar? Since I would have the two strings of 100 broken into four horizontal lines of 25? (I know this is small but this is my first dabble into pixels and I already have a fairly big AC display)
  6. If I bought the new CCP-2 controller with two strands of 100 bullet pixels, would it be possible to make a matrix that is 8 pixels tall and 25 pixels wide (3" spacing)? I know logistically I can build the matrix but how hard would it be to sequence it in either the LOR Sequence Editor or the SuperStar Sequencer? Currently I have the S4 Advanced license. I would either buy SuperStar or upgrade my Advanced license to the Pro license.
  7. CCP-2 Matrix Question

I would either buy SuperStar or upgrade my Advanced license to the Pro license.
  8. I noticed that the new CCR controllers can control up to 200 pixels now (or 600 total channels). But the SuperStar software licenses are based off the old 100 pixel controllers. Will this be updated for the new controllers? Or will you have to buy a license based off the new controller configuration? (New controller would be 600 channels despite being only 2 CCR) Would love an answer to this rather soon so I can make the final decision on my CCR purchase.
  9. 2016 LOR Shining Bright Christmas Contest

    Apparently my video didnt make it into the list. Im guessing there was an upload issue
  10. Pixel Upgrade Help!

    I have an existing LOR AC show that has 64 channels. I am considering changing the lights that outline my roof/house to pixels and was wondering how hard it would be to integrate pixels for a small portion of my show this year? I do have the advanced license of LOR S4 so i think I would have to upgrade that. But beyond that would it be pretty easy to sequence in the pixels to my existing AC shows? Also what would be the best way to add the pixels to the network? Build a DMX controller with pixels or buy the LOR Cosmic controller and pixel set? Or would it be better to go with a pixie4/8/16 to allow myself expansion down the road? (Since the pre-built controller from LOR only controls 2 strings of 50)
  11. I am thinking about building a podium style show switch to use on the night of Thanksgiving when I start my show. My question is, does the input connector for the gen 3 controller have any limitations on the length of the wire coming from the input connector to the button itself? Or should the controller with the connector be as close to the button as possible? I am only going to use the trigger button for the first night and then I will run my show using a normal scheduled time.
  12. LOR contest results?

    Any update on the winners? I looked all over the LOR main page and didnt see anything.
  13. LOR Spring Sale

    I hope they are sub-$200 when they go on sale.
  14. How is your display take-down coming along?

    With the snow storm, ice storm and rain over the past 3 weeks not much has come down. Yesterday and today we had mid 50s weather so I took down probably 90% of my display and it is now sitting in the office warming up so I can wrap my lights and ext cords before putting them away.
  15. LOR Spring Sale

    I am friendly with one of my neighbors and I let him know before Thanksgiving that the lights were going up and he had no issues with them and didnt care. My other neighbor is a rental house so people come and go. As far as my comment about live life the way you want and if people want to complain they can.......That was meant in a non-aggressive/douche bag way. I know I cant make EVERYONE happy and people down the street don't know me or have any encounters with me to know I simply love lights because they genuinely make me happy. But at the end of the day displays have been shut down because people dont like them and during my life I have come to the realization that if someone is going to complain at that type of level they are going to regardless. I did have someone from 2 blocks away tell me she loved the display and then I had another person tell me that her son ask to come see the display every night after dinner. That's why I do it, to give kids something to look at and be amazed with. I don't do it for personal pride, in fact thats one of the reasons I didnt use my last name as the display name.
