  1. We have vinyl siding on our house. I simply bought more "J" channel and attach the strips to it with zip ties. Turned finished side towards the house the J channel will hang on the gutters. Finished side facing the house it will also hook behind the existing J channel around the windows. We are also using the jacketed RGB strips from Ray. The ones around our windows can't bee seen unless you are standing right next to them. They have been around the windows for 3 years now. They still work great.
  2. I have mine attached to vinyl J channel that just slides behind the existing J channel that is around my windows and it locks in place. I have wire connecters soldered at each corner connecting the 4 strips together. Couple places have rather long runs of RGB strips and have to be powered at a couple of the corners to keep the "white" from being pink.
  3. monoprice.com has very good prices on cat5 or 6 cables.
  4. Yes, I had the problem with S2 and vista. Was using AL stuff before vista. It looks to me like the LOR software (S2 or S3) actually 'releases' WMP after every sequence then 're-opens' it. This causes the flash of the desktop, or screen to minimize then maximize again. Not 100% sure I am right, but looks like that is what is happening. I don't think any different video formats will solve this problem.

I think it would be nice if S3 could/would keep the windows video 'in focus' during the whole show (until shutdown). Therefore avoiding any changes to the video window between sequences. Not sure if this is possible or would cause other problems though. Certainly understand the 'too busy with other 'hobbies' this time of year'.:cool:

  7. If you have a LOR USB/rs485 converter try hooking it up to your computer also and see if the control lights will stay checked. You would not need to have any LOR controllers hooked to it. I know in the past if I did not have it hooked to the computer control lights would not stay checked. Perhaps the same thing is happening even though you have a Enttec pro hooked up.
  8. I certainly still use tracks. I keep a 'master track' because funny (well not really funny) things can happen when importing new channel configurations if I don't. I also use 'groups', but don't like the way groups 'can' rearrange channels for you without you knowing about it. If I make a group in track one and duplicate the group to track 2 and move the channels around in the track 2 group it will also move the channels around in the track one group. I hate the way groups work in that aspect.

This page should help you figure out what license level you had with S2 and give you info on renewing, or upgrading, or purchasing a superstar license. BTW if you think you want the superstar license just get it and it includes a renew to S3 from S2.
  10. I don't twist or zip tie my 'mega strings together. 4 strings of lights are attached to the hook head at the top, and those same 4 strings are zip tied to the bottom base of the tree. They twist/entangle themselves with each other just fine on their own.:cool:

However thinking about it now I don't think it would be any different. Also when I ordered the ones I did the wording was the same as it is now "100pcs/lot" but in fact thru clarification with Ray it was 100 pair not 50 pair. I have no idea if one was 'better' than the other.
