  1. How did you whip this out so fast? I have been thinking about this also but I want to repurpose LOR bullets which have four wires. Can you whip that out too?
  2. I have a very long storage area under the deck with a rain guard over head to keep it mostly dry. I have the tubes now. But I still have not taken down the pixel tree because it has been snowy/rainy and cold. But.. I have been lighting it every night.
  3. Thanks guys I already placed the order for two twelve foot 8 inch diam sonotubes from Menards. $20 each which is not much more than the four foot ones. Much cheaper and lighter than the pipe. The PVC pipe was extremely heavy and would have been hard to position and store with the pixels in it.
  4. Right, no need for the holes...what I am looking for is pipe larger than 4 inch diameter. I have found some > $1k water pipe which is WAY too expensive. The white/black with holes, largest largest around here is 4inch. Same for OH.
  5. I think Randy has the winning idea! A product which can be found on a website and available locally. Much cheaper than the stiff water pipes of smaller diameter. Lowes does not appear to list the 12 foot length but menards does which is my preferred anyway.
  6. Thank you Jim for being the first to say your strips dont all hang straight. Maybe your attribution to position is what I should be looking at as a bigger contributor to the twisting I see on mine. I can see minor 'fold lines' which I have assigned to blame to so far.
  7. Its not available anywhere! If you think it is.. post the link for EIGHT INCH DIAMETER pipe. The four inch diameter which is eight feet long is available everywhere. I would not need help with that. Please give me some credit for being smart enough to shop.
  8. Around here I have only seen that in 4 inch diam.. checking internet for it.
  9. Everything is down but the pixel tree and I am still trying to figure this out. Lowes did not have large diam pipe. The plumbing supply stores are not open weekends. doh
  10. wait... are you doing the mouth movements? Everyone already has this TSO song sequenced.
  11. I will do the faces but... cant be on a deadline as the display tear down is higher on the list.
  12. Sent. I had not worked with that file since 2013! I had the PGO but the LMS was MIA. I had to rebuild it for you so its rough. There is are no lead in / trail out fades and some spots may need a rest mouth to look better. But I as say.. I dont want to hear this song ever again! Ditto JR. Please specify clearly if you want the mouth movements. I dont even say 'face' since I dont do the eye movements or face outlines. My display has RGB faces so I can only supply the mouth.
  13. The 1500 pixels on the roof will need a new home in the yard if I am able to angle a nice long P20 panel for the roof! I think I am ready to replace the 32 three color trees. They are spread over 55 feet and 1 foot high. Doing some fuzzy math... The roof sign is 16 by 150 pixels and apx 32 inches by 24 feet. Cutting that in half, I could make an 8 by 300 which would cover almost the same area as the trees, 16 inches high by 48 feet.
  14. My 10 year old was there to sing God Bless America with her choir. I HAD to go hear her at $10 each an $10 to park. So I was at least going to enjoy the lights. I am a paying member of Vimeo so that limit was not the issue. I was uploading from my phone away from wi-fi. Yeah that would have been better with a few more seconds.
  15. A few years ago? The kids still love this song! I have a request show which allows guests to pick. The Fox comes up WAY WAY more than I want it to. I have put a throttle on it keep it from playing so much. This one and Let it go just WONT DIE!
  16. Tonight I was at the St Louis Ambush soccer game. The marquee was the most interesting part for an hour. Closest I could get was 15 feet away. What is the size of each panel and pixel density? Seems to me to be about 7/8 of inch so P20? My roof would love to have some of these. It got interesting when the mascot (bushwacker) came running out with announcer saying he had free Pizza! After a long tour around and a fight with a kid, he ran over to us and handed the pizza to my daughter! Our family was on the jumbo tron! Then I had to go back to wondering if these panels are waterproof?
  17. Thanks for confirming Stephan. I think the DIO option will give you the required control. My relays were used for many momentary switches and after 5-6 years I noticed they occasionally would stick. At a flip a day they should last you.
  18. I think OP mentioned this is a static display. So yes, you just may be self confessed confused. He wants to switch his statics on at show start and off at the end. No music syncing. Seems to me he needs each channel to support 8-12 at the same time so all the static lights can be on for the duration of the evening. If using a DIO + RLY, it would be located near the panel, have 10 cords going in and 10 out, then continue as they have in the past to the non-blinking lights.
  19. Love the Nailed it plate!
  20. "Nailed it" is a baking challenge TV show which had this little riff in the opening. My wife and kids loved it and asked me to do it. It was a little hard to hard to find the mp3 as it is apparently not a widely distributed song. I did find a it on a band site for free download. I was unable to tell if it was a cover by another group but this is definitely the version used by the Nailed it show. The mp3 in the sequence was edited to make the song longer. It was short and irregular to me.
  21. Never knew... another side to JR!
  22. I purchased my DIO32 and relay boards in 2010. At the time, I was worried about sending less than 100% power to props with power packs, strobes, lasers. Now a regular AC controller can be set to supply only 0% or 100% I dont feel like I need the DIO anymore for AC. I am still using two relays to switch DC for the drip tubes.
