  1. Thanks exactly what I was look for. Got RGB for new home. But square nodes.
  2. Just a curious question where does everyone hang their lights on their homes outline. Under soffit, top of gutter, bottom of gutter or other. Also like to know why you choose this particular option. What’s the good and bad of each position. I bought a old home and the second floor gutters will be problematic to hang as I get older. Just looking at the future. I wonder what it would look like If I installed under soffit next to house wall specifically.
  3. Looks like I am late in the game (149 responses) so I will watch your video. Will you paste it here or start a new thread so I know where to look. Anyway this is awesome your doing this. Hope it goes well and more are offered.
  4. Thanks k6ccc. I missed out last year due to us moving long story I am not going into. Actually really missed this forum and the helpful people here. I believe I have more lights than I need. I had pixels and controller already, but then I saw the sale and over indulged. (With the wife’s blessing of course) I will be hitting it hard the next few months. I think the easiest solution would be best. I am still an amateur. So by getting the large 80 CCR will make it simpler? My goal is to get a basic house outline, tree and singer face complete. Not going all out bells and whistles. May even tap in
  5. Just moved to new home and of course I am behind. Lots to do. Anyway trying to control 3200 pixels. Which superstar version would be best. I search for a thread related to this could not find. Hoping for good input on which one to get and why. Superstar is not the cheapest thing. Thank you in advanced.....
  6. I like to apologize to everyone I have ignored request on. I been really out of it with me moving and all. Once I am unpacked I will get this out too you all.
  7. You’ll need to give me sometime. Recently sold and bought a home and everything is in unknown locations at the moment. But I will get it too you.
  8. Love to have a copy glivingston.doc@gmail.com thank you
  9. Mr. P Ok I remember this where do I go to see this. It was if I recall 5. Something
  10. Ok so my show PC has S4 my new laptop I did S5. I was going to try and learn S5 but that didn’t happen. Life! Anyway if I revert this back to S4 will I be able to go back to S5 latter without having to pay the cash out?
  11. Hello all not been on lately. Been sorta a bumpy year. Not sure I will be able to incorprate RGB’s I bought for this year. We’ll see. Anyway who decides this song of the year. I am interested, never did last years but maybe this years got a lot of sequencing to do. Anyway never heard the HU song until now. Scratching my head about that one. But old time road was sorta cool. Should be able to hit the beats with the bells.
  12. It is not problem if it’s not a problem. I just hate using power when there is no need for it. I should reword my question. Do all you have fans on or is this really just a cheap PSU? I will check the wires, but like you say if the circuit is in the board it likely will only have two wires regardless. Regardless it will work for now. Just want to know how your PSU work.
  13. With all that being said should I be worried about the fan on. Obviously with me I am changing it out I would rather have one that turns on and off as needed. But is this correct or me being a newbie? Oh one other thing should or should it not be fused between the PSU and the control board. My thinking with automotive any time a circuit is added a fuse is added between the batt and the device. The PSU in this case is the batt so I added fuses to each side of the board.
  14. I saw only one that said that. Bought this as a recommendation. Is it normal for them to run all the time. Even on the stamped steel it says “This power supply is built in fan on/off control circuit. Fan automatically works according to working temperature” everything else seems fine it’s putting out 12.2 volts. Just the fan is always on. “

  16. Well I received my PSU and finally powered it up. Immediately the fan kicked on. It’s suppose to be temperature regulated off and on. Supplier says it is always on. Box stamping says otherwise. I am wondering is this normal or as I suspect there is something wrong. A little new with these PSU’s so not sure.
  17. So when the time comes is it better to do rows on a mega tree?
  18. On LOR’s pixel tree package they do a fold? Looking into the future once I have this matrix done. I plan a tree next. A tree is nothing more than a matrix. Is the norm to run each string without a fold or with? Obviously since LOR tree has a single fold they make sequences for a fold. Just don’t understand why not for a matrix. Oh back in business hopefully I have something lighting up on the matrix this weekend
  19. Yea I am no programmer myself so it’s always been IF in doubt leave it be until you know otherwise. Another thing is making sure the ones you don’t want are not running in the back ground. Removing and turning off unwanted items saves me a load of headache. Lucky for me I been taught enough at my work what to shut off while I am using my PC to collect data.
  20. Yea I came to a stand still on the project. I did a lot of research instead yesterday and JR was right. Might be too much a hassle. So what I bought supplies for isn’t going too work so I am on standby until I determine what I am going to do. Quantifying the cost is one thing. I read through a few prop designs and it seems one row per port is the norm on the pixie.
  21. New PC’s have a lot of junk installed. You could carefully started uninstalling these programs. These will bog your PC down. I had 3 types of anti virus on my new PC I bought in November and a bunch of other junk games etc. I been uninstalling these and my PC is getting faster. They put this crap on there to get you to buy in. Be careful though.....
  22. Honestly I am learning everything as I go. I switch to S5 on my laptop wow it’s different. I still have S4 on my show PC but that’s Incase I fail at figuring pixels out. I am going to update my profile. Most I have done in S5 is outline my house and well it looks as though it works in the program. I like to see it work in reality using pixels so I bought the matrix net. Figured what the heck. If I figure a matrix out I should be good to go. I can accept using 8 channels but not 16. 8 will allow me to add to this one on the side or bottom or top
  23. Ok I have settled down. I guess I will chalk this up as an expensive learning mistake on my part. I bought one of these HC nets. 3" Center to Center Node Spacing / 512 Nodes Total / 32 x 16 / 95.6" x 47.6" / BLACK / Price per Net [Add $43.95] What would be the most common method for doing this in LOR with a pixie? Is the term zig zag and fold the same? I like to get started getting my lights in the net tomorrow. oh am I going to run into the same issue with a mega tree. It’s basically a matrix shaped like a tree. Can I go up 50 pixels and then back down 50?
