  1. Is there a limit to the number of controllers you can have per network? I was looking in the manual but couldn't find any recommendations.
  2. Thanks Dennis. I ended up saving the animation sequence under anew name and added 2 animation sequences to the "Show". now it seems to be working.
  3. Merry Christmas! I hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas Season! Has anyone had difficulty running an Animation Sequence from the scheduler? I have 192 Channels and for the last 5 years have been running an animation to keep the lights on after and before my show. This year for some reason I am getting a "Cannot open file error" in the scheduler. The rest on my show is working perfectly. Any help would be appreciated.

  5. I have a 7' Spiral Tree I made out of PVC. I have 8 strands of 4 individual color 100 count lights all running in the same direction. (that's LED 1600 lights and a total of 32 channels) I am planning on adding 8 more 4 color strands for a Vertical effect.
  6. I have been using the Wreath Easels for 4 years now. So far I have only had to replace 1 that collapsed. They are inexpensive and easy to find (Michaels). I cover them with around 800 LED lights each. I rest the sockets on top of a 4" piece of 2x4 and that seems to eliminate GFCI problems when wet. They stack easily when I put a plastic grocery bag between each mini tree. The first year I used lot's of zip ties, now I don't use more than 5-6 per tree. This makes it much easier to do repairs "in Season". I prefer the shape of the easel to the shape of the tomato cage which sometimes looks more like a torpedo than a tree to me.
  7. I am planning to step it up a notch next year and add completely cover my yard and front of house in LED lights. I want to be able to chase from left to right and up and down. I'm looking for ideas on how to attach the lights to my all brick 2 story house and the best methodology for ground cover. Would 12" spacing between channels be adequate or too close? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  8. To follow up. I left the controller over a heat register for about 6 hours. I had the time and wanted to be sure it was completely dry. Hooked it up, secured the door, and it has been working ever since.
  9. Pocketcloud is my favorite, Use it on my Android phone, iPad, and Nexus 7
  10. Thanks George! I decided to go ahead and assemble the spare controller as a back up.
  11. This morning, as I was troubleshooting an exterior speaker issue (varmints!), I found one of my controllers with the door wide open. We had some light rain this morning and the controller was definitely wet inside. I also noticed that the mini trees it was connected to were lit up. I immediately unplugged the controller from power and dabbed as much water as I could out of the enclosure. I then placed the controller, with the door open, in my half bath because it is probably the warmest, driest area in the house. I am hoping that it will dry out before tonight's show. I have some questions. 1. What other precautions should I take? Should I pull all of the connectors free? 2. How long will it take for it to dry out? 3. What are the chances I will have issues with this controller going forward? 4. I have a spare controller, should I just replace the wet one for this years show? If anyone has experience with this issue, I would love to hear from you. Thanks Russ
