  1. My G3 one worked great. I ran my regular lor channels (300) & a 16 ccr Matrix & 16 CCP controllers no problem. However I just bought the G4 with 4 ports last Wednesday .....should arrive by next Wensday I am guessing.
  2. If anything could I have please have your Lcc file? So I can see what the song I mentioned above would look like on your house. Please & thankyou.
  3. Mega Arch are you will to share the sequence & your lcc file .Please!!! It has been a few years for me & so it is like starting over again. I sold most stuff but I want to get into sequencing again if nothing else. I want to try & make a sequence to a song from a singer that follows me on twitter. Her version of All I Want For Christmas. Kate Grom is her name. If I can get it done maybe you can add it in your display even if just for a day or 2. Make a video so that I can show her. Please & thank you.
  4. I am, sorry to hear this news. It does happen. Happen to us in our old home 1 season but it stopped because we talked with a lady who talked to her song who talked with his friends & then it stopped. Then we move & all was good for 10 years & then it happened again. This time it effected me to the point where I decorated less....but kept decorating & even though I am doing a static display again this year I when bigger than I have in the past few years. It may get you down, and you may want to scale back a bit but if you do remember to keep on plugging away even if you scale back a bit. Think of the folks that do enjoy the display & the season.
  5. I still have 12 ribbons. I haven't used them in 5 years.
  6. In my yard I don't have room for circles, & so arches work for me. On the other hand a person can have both. Circles in my ash tree might look cool.
  7. Out of curiosity how many channels do you have? Is your setup done for the 2018 Christmas season?
  8. There is another option. Like leaving the face of the house static for this year & putting up a nice mega tree or two, 15 mini trees, say 5 pixel arches (Smart Pixels) , 2 Marty fans (say 13 channels each) & then let me sequence a song for you. I need the practice. Been a couple years since I did a regular display. Spent to much time sequencing animation pixel Matrix or Tree sequences.
  9. In Canada we have Socan (copyright protection for singer) . I sent 6 emails & 4 emails from 4 different people say there is no law forbidding you to play music in your yard for personal use. Oh but 2 email from 2 different people come back & say "you need this license (so for @$222 I can play any song I want publicly for the year.). Which isn't bad if we didn't have from March to Sept between 12 to 19 hours of daylight. I could play sequences that I created in Superstar all year. Nevertheless I go by those other emails. Howbeit I go about things differently as I go to Indie singers. I tell them what I do, show them my videos, promise them I will give them proper credit, with their website etc. Then they get back to me & some say "here, lets see what you can do with this Christmas song I wrote". A nice upbeat song, catchy & off I go. I say do you want me to pay for the song & they say, no....heck your doing all the work & giving me free promotion. Others I buy the songs from. I will tell you what, these artist help me beyond words. Via Christmas contests, I ask...I need a good song for my wife's birthday, Eddie bush comes back & says here is my gift to your wife. A fantastic song....made my wife's day. Some of the singers are right on the door step of Stardom. I have autographed cds, pictures, I received word that there is a new autographed picture coming my way. So I mix Indie singers Christmas music with some mainstream Christmas music in my display. On a side note. Choose your words wisely when you ask Indie singers for permission. Mega Arch is catching on to this Indie singer stuff. I said to Mega Arch.....how would you like my sequence to "Santa's Got A New Ride"...he said yes...I sent it...but I said there is one catch....you can't buy the song....you need to ask the artist for the song. Good practice. Now Mega Arch is a hero for doing a song called Breathe.
  10. The song Thin Blue Line. I remember Mega Arch talking about it. Mega Arch likes to promote Eddie Bush. Eddie is a great guy. A great tribute song to say the lease. dibblejr it is a great act of kindness sharing your sequence. An important tribute.
  11. I can't remember if I have Boney M sequences. Where in BC are you? I am going to guess west coast to avoid snow.
  12. Brian helped you that is good. I personally used 3 inch spacing. Gave me better resolutions. I used white zip ties to keep my strips up on the screen. I painted the 1 x 2's white which made the screen brighter but maybe a flat black colour would be better. I am hoping to get a vertical screen up this year.
  13. This is her other version of the song.
