    Looking to buy a USB-RS485 adapter

    I personally love to open the box and dig through all the packing to find things. The dogs go nuts chasing peanuts. The cats do too.

    Going Dark in 2019

    My son and I took a road trip to visit the Talleys and finalize buying all 3 trees, their stars, arches, and controllers. It's my hope to see their display continue, at least in part, for a long time. This past year was our first year with LOR and although we only used the purchased sequences from the Showtime Central, we still greatly enjoyed it and it sparked a desire to continue building a better show. The Talleys were kind and lovely people and Earle is passionate about his trees. We plan to set them up in the backyard in the next month or so to get a practice run on assembling them. Blessings!

    Welcome! I started this past year myself. I only used purchased or shared sequences this year because I REALLY procrastinated. I still ended up utilizing 44 channels at Halloween and 48 at Christmas. I looked at LOR for a long time too. It's rather addictive once you get started. I will more than double my channel count next year.
  5. 1st year with LOR. I went from 6 Gemmy channels to 48 LOR channels. I went from just icicles on the roof to 4 colors on the roof and windows. I traded out 4 incandescent string trees for 4 LED trees from HD that really are pretty awesome bases. I will trade the lights out next year. I added a Bumble (from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer) that I don't like. I added one set of those 7ft tall candy canes from HD and a set of stacked gift boxes from Lowe's. I like both of those. I changed my columns from one single strand of C9s to 8 channels of mini lights in an old style equalizer look with the different colors going up the columns. I added 4 of the large snowflakes from Lowe's. I'm already planning to add arches and spiral trees and mini trees next year. I will replace the lampposts at the end of the sidewalk with something, probably an arbor that will stay up year round and get lit for holidays.

    How tall are your spiral trees and where are you located? I would actually be interested in all 3 of them, with stars.

    Just wondering

    I'll bet a new set cost a lot more than $100!

    George's Face Lives On.... Oh Yeah!

    I love George's house face. It's really cool and very different. My house is too small to put something like that on.

    Cost-benefit of CCB vs LED strings?

    So why do they sell 3 different types of controllers? And what's the difference in the CCBs and the bulbs you can get with the pixie/pixcon? Why do the cosmic color controllers only control a few strings?

    Cost-benefit of CCB vs LED strings?

    That's what I'm afraid of. What's the difference in the CCC-II and the pixie and the pixcon controllers?
