    What are you guys talking about? If someone is mad and doesn't want me around, they can go somewhere else. My wife likes discovering I spent money so she can then spend money on her stuff, its only fair.
  2. The timing grid used in SE is not related to any pasting issue you may have. Select the paste by time option. Which means the timings which are kept in the clipboard.
  3. Yes they will. But that does not mean older controllers will run at the higher speeds. If you want to use a higher speed..all the controllers connected to the red RS485 must support that speed.
  4. I have not seen any of the errors mentioned here. My links stay with me no matter where I am logged in from. The search results are not related to any formatting issues on the site. Try lightorama forum instead of light o rama fourm
  5. When I can hear the music inside my house I think neighbors can too. I just dial down the volume at show computer to off until they drive away. A few times years ago, when there was a loud car, I played a recorded message but the words weren't as threatening as yours. But back to the OP. Buy a transmitter if you are worried about complaints.
  6. Do you have a walk through display? Most of the time people will be near their own radio.
  7. Does "Just completed" mean you sync'd the words yourself in SE? Or are you pasting a clipboard?
  8. I am moving forward with a custom design which has 10 pixels in a group. This will allow me to have a variable number of pixels in a set. If any set of 10 fails, I can replace those in the middle. Please PM me if you are interested in this custom design.
  9. I dont think I signed in here for a few days! My mind has been straying lately. Dont tell my wife.
  10. I now have a good quote from a manufacturer to build strands with the required return data wire. Please private message me if you would like the details.
  11. Finally got around to editing this video on the 5mm strobes. I really liked the white which I mounted along the roofline. The blue seem dimmer and I am not so positive about them.
  12. Mine present for 19 minutes after a posting.
  13. I go thru a lot of ties. Mounting my LED strobes took over 2000! There was one for each bulb plus some extras on each of the 40 strands https://vimeo.com/280309439 I will be sticking with the old fashioned ties.
  14. Bhays post counts by year from history 2012-0 2013-2 2014-0 2015-1 2016-0 2017-0 2018-0 Did not reply to posts in 2009 or for the files in 2013. Chances are not so good.
  15. RW has a few options 5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5 36" spacing 6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6 36" spacing 3-4-5-3-4-5-3-4-5-3-4-5-3-4-5 8" spacing I think the number of pixels should be higher. The peace family stake designs go up to 10 which I am thinking higher and therefore custom. Also I was thinking about connectors between each run.
  16. Jim I sent one of your drawings I doctored to RW for a quote on custom strands. I dont have the patience for all that soldering and sealing. (removed the comment as its not allowed)
  17. Denny If you need help with the slower not as good way (not!) let me know.
  18. I picked up some of these as a test from Boscoyo and they are very impressive. The 10mm coro is very strong and I like the pattern and way they are cut. I got the E option which is 10 bullet 1.5" apart. Today I noticed they have a new website and it looks very good and easier to navigate.
  19. Can someone post pictures of how this looks in practice? I too have been thinking about longer runs but I dont really like the idea of running two sets of wires and splicing to inject power. Where is the integrated five wire solution? For roof line mounting. If I need to inject at pixel 65... why is there no pre-fabricated strand which extends power (skipping over the pixels) to inject at the right spot?
  20. Clipboard flipper is now retired. The new guy, AutoFlip has taken the stage for all types of S4 and S5 Clipboard manipulation. Some people are wishing the old guy could work forever and have let me know. But it is time to let him rest and go on a vacation. If any of you have question on how to accomplish with AutoFlip the jobs which used to be done by Clipboard Flipper, please let me know. Bob-O
  21. Most of us have our own transmitters which reach just to the street in front of the house. We dont have the ability to blink lights to licensed radio stations with huge playlists. For a limited number of songs, the audio and lighting commands are sync'd ahead of time. When transmitting the audio, we send commands to the lights at the same time.
