  1. Here's my cut-out additions for this season.
  2. Ran across 10 strings of red, white, blue incan minis. 100-ct 23.5' lighted. Some of them are brand new and some were used only indoors a couple times. Looking for $2/string. The are packed in a large USPS flat-rate box ($20 shipping). Any takers?
  3. I am glad that my previous post explained well enough not to cause too much damage. I guess that it was too much to ask for from the sender that I did not want to step on any IP issues. Thanks DevMike for your understanding.
  4. When I first requested the VO I was looking for one of his free ones as I know that there are a few that he allows us to trade (like the show starters). When I listened to it I discovered that it was tailored to a specific user and didnt use it. I then contacted DE to get permission to use it, that was when DE said it wasnt a gratuitous VO and requested him to do one for me, not knowing this was his last season. It is truly sad news to hear him retire. I still hope to get a season ender from him when he gets to it.
  5. Beige siding. I generally put 3 floods about 16' from house. You can see the spot placement the yard.
  6. I have a standard 44' long split level home. Eave height is about 16'.
  7. With the sale rapidly approaching, whats the consensus of opinion on the 10W RGB flood 8-pack. I want to replace my 90w incan Red-Green-White floods with them. Will I get a better presentation (wash). Was thinking of the Plug N play show pack. Its a pretty good savings.
  8. I bought my last batch for shooting starts from http://www.birddogdistributing.com Great folks to deal with. They stand 100% behind their products.
  9. any possibilities of grabbing this sequence? PineRidgeLights@comcast.net
  10. I have a Ramsey that has been flawless for 10 seasons. I also have a smaller backup. https://sourcefmtransmitter.com/shop/ramsey-fm30b-fm-transmitter/ https://www.amazon.com/0-5-Fail-Safe-Long-Range-Transmitter/dp/B003FO4UHW/ref=sr_1_121?ie=UTF8&qid=1488747324&sr=8-121&keywords=fm+broadcast+transmitter
  11. No prob. If you are handle with excel you can do quite a bit with it. I also use it for my light count.
  12. Yes. I use excel all the time to validate my config against my drawing layout. Just ope excel and then open the lcc file. Just answer all the prompts and the excel file will be open. you can manipulate the file any way you want. i also use it to see what unused chnls i have or dupes. then save as an excel file. Dont know about the visualizer, dont use it.
  13. Very nice. Never thought of using pex for that. I have a couple of old incan spiral trees that I am contemplating on changing out to green LEDs this summer. I have 2 incan green 4'-ers that that I will change out to LEDs this year.
  14. I guess I am a little anal about my data, being in the IT world for several years. I work up my sequences on one machine, back them up to a USB drive each night (wrote a short batch file to accomplish this) and then transfer them to my show PC downstairs in the shop for the seasons shows. That gives me three copies. After the season I back up everything to an external HD and also my server.

    I have 7. It always seems to be a huge debate on the number, either odd or even. With odd, you have one segment on top, with even the top is split. The number of segemnts also depends on the number of lights per segment. Mine are 100, thats about a 16" segment with an arch span of 83". Take a look at others vids to see what might work for you. mine are at https://vimeo.com/pineridgelights
  16. my error on the non-post of "icicle" lights. agree on shipping. thats what usually gets us in the end on this hobby/obsession.
  17. I might have used them once, dont really remember sorry. But they are in excellent condition. The 13x13x13 box weighs 18#. Shipping is stupid, $42 from 03034. Let me know....
  18. Transformers - Arrival to Earth is pretty cool. Give it a listen.
  19. Cleaning out some incan minis - I have 9 strings available; 19ft long, 300-ct, Blue, white wire; $25 + shipping - OBO
  20. I use DE for some of my voice overs, does any one have a season ender (this will be our last show for the season....) they can share?
  21. I thought about those but wasnt sure about the wattage issue. Confirmed now, thanks. I'll be in touch next season for advice.
  22. What wattage or part number are they. Wanted to go with them this year but $$ didnt permit.
  23. Very nice. What spots are you using to wash the house?
  24. I saw a news article last night on local channel that a spur of issues were happened in the big city (well to us Manchester, NH is a big city). They are just creating all sorts of havoc, from broken fences and windows to Christmas displays. I really do not know what they are thinking. Stupid kids! I too have a Night Owl system. Older one, but plan on upgrading the dvr to a Lorex. All the cams will still work.
  25. That is strange. In HW util do a light CK and see what happens. Also make sure ur sequence is for 2 units.
