A dsl tech came out to test the lines, everything was fine for him, that was before i found out that the show was causeing the problem. I have tested everything that was in these posts and plus some. I called up the same dsl tech today and told him it was my show that was the problem, he had to see it for himself. He came out a little while ago to check it, it was the first of the kind of problem for him. The only thing he could figure out to do is to put a dsl filter in the box outside of the house. And wire the dsl on a open pair in the wiring. so the dsl and the phone is on different pairs in the house wiring. and it work, so have a tech to try that. good luck james oh by the way i'm useing ELL and i had one controller that was causing the dsl to jump off. I didn't told him that tho. but filter in the box fix it.

  5. i found out on mistaken that you could take off the top antenna. i was thinking about ordering http://www.l-com.com/item.aspx?id=20230 to connect the 2 houses, that way i woundn't need to run a long cable or use a controller in the middle. i was also wondering if anyone else know what connector is on the the linker, and if i need a RP-SMA plug for the antenna connector. thanks james
  6. the distance between the house is about 1080ft. one house is up on a hill, that one is where my computer runs the show. the other one is down on the road level. i have tried it last month some, it wouldn't get a clear signal. i wish LOR made ELL with removable antenna, so you could use directional antenna with them. james Attached files
  7. could you take 2 light linkers and connect them back to back, i know they get they power from the controller, and you would need to supplies the 9v into the cat5. then one would be on one channel and 2nd on another. i have a long way in between 2 houses i want to do this year with running the same show. if that would be possible what are the pinout on cat5? james

  9. i couldn't find a topic about this, one of my computer buddy and i got talking tonight about my light show, would it be possible to send the command signal from my computer to his house like 2 miles or less, like if you would stream radio on computers. i know you can do it with ELLs, but you have to have one every 1000 feet or so. just wondering
  10. here a picture of my 64 channel display, share your setup Attached files
