  1. Imagine Dragons - Thunder

    May I please have a copy. Thanks danalexander429@gmail.com
  2. Mini Christmas trees out of tomato cages

    I used a single 42" tomato cage for mine and wrapped it with chicken wire. Very easy to install the lights and you can ziptie anywhere on the chicken wire
  3. SuperStar Sequencer License Question

    Money = business FYI. Not much in life is free. I use Xlights for all of my sequencing except my tree. Superstar is pretty amazing. Curious where $1400.00 comes from? I could build several 12 string pixel trees for that..
  4. Sail Awol Nation Pixel

    I would love a copy James. Thanks! danalexander429@gmail.com
  5. Corner House, usually use 2 different views...

    Corner lot here too. I took a panoramic on my IPhone. Worked great to get whole display in one pic. I don't use pixel editor but I'm assuming it might work there too
  6. Holidaycoro Sale??

    What's really nice when you buy direct is you can specify spacing on nodes, size of wire, etc. Not stuck with 50 ct strings of nodes from HC. I do like to support the guys in the USA as well but sometimes its not worth all the extra work when you can order exactly what you need. Personally I order strings and still do all the pigtails/connectors myself.
  7. Holidaycoro Sale??

    You can always cut out the middle man and buy direct from China. Save some money and get product quicker. Lots of orders with Scottled, The extensions and pigtails have mated with Holiday Coros as well. No problems with communicating with him either. Easier than dealing with David actually. sales03@scottled.com is email if interested.
  8. christmas vacation

    This one? https://www.dropbox.com/s/j0hqd2liwvowmsm/Griswold.mp3?dl=0
  9. Matrix suggestions

    I would recommend the Monster Matrix from Boscoyo. I used it for my 84x42 matrix. I made a frame from 1 3/8" top rail fencing. Great quality like everything from Boscoyo. https://www.boscoyostudio.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_30&products_id=59
  10. So how and when did you get started?

    I started when my son had his first Christmas with large static display. He's now 12. 16 channels in 2008 I believe, 32 in 2009, 224 in 2010, 60k+ channels in 2016. Who knows for 2017... It started with a bunch of blow ups and static C9's.
  11. Driveway Arches

    My driveway arch spans approximately 16 feet with 1" sch40 PVC with 3/4" solid shaft 4 feet in the ground and 4 feet up on each arch for support. I attach the PEX tubing to the 1" PVC. I have guy wires as well. An arch over a 30 ft driveway is no easy chore. Especially as an entry level RGB project. You could bend EMT, but I don't know if I would even trust EMT for this. That's a long span...
  12. Mine are 20 feet long. I've always just spooled them up kind of like you would an extension cord in a large circle. I have big boxes I store them in. My tree is constructed similar, 48 strings of 110 pixels with up and down format
  13. Matrix: Strip or node

    My larger matrix is 84x42 with 1.125" spacing utilizing Boscoyo Monster Matrix.
  14. Building pixel tree

    There is no set guide for a pixel tree. People have different designs, spacing, etc. I started by laying the strips out on the ground and seeing what I wanted for spacing at the top and bottom. I ended up going with approximately 2" spacing at the top and 9" at the bottom on my 16 string tree. There is no right or wrong. Its DIY... make it however you want. I found these pics from BMurray on a previous thread which might give some insight on how some people do it. https://goo.gl/photos/5WCF4NMoeixB9q2HA My tree frame is all welded together with 1/2" EMT with the strips ziptied to the emt. Lots of different ways to do it. None are right or wrong. Think outside looking for a parts list and figure out what you want your tree to look like.
  15. Mega tree pixel mounting strips

    The strips I have are labeled "OFF SPEC PRODUCT This product has been marked as off-spec as it doesn't meet our high standards for "regular" product. This product is still completely functional" Its been a while since I bought these.... but it was in the presale for 2015. On sale yes... but I don't remember any mention a faulty off spec material. It wasn't "completely functional" the nodes were falling out... Regardless Boscoyo would never ship product as flawed as this... I was a big fan of Holiday Coro and a very loyal customer. Davids customer service is horrible in my opinion. I spent close to 10k there in 2015 and wasn't treated very well. I had an issue with a Boscoyo product and they took care of it. No questions asked. The same cant be said for Holiday Coro. Trying to warn people is all. This isn't LOR you're dealing with when it comes to product quality and customer service. I still have a couple of unopened 20 strip rolls with the "OFF SPEC... etc " sticker on them if you're interested. Make you a killer deal on some quality Holiday Coro product... Like George said, trying to warn newbies so they don't make the same mistake I made. Holiday Coro copies what other vendors come up with, lowers the quality as well as the price tag. Undercuts them with an inferior product in my opinion.
