  1. My problem is I have replaced computers several times since I started using LOR all except 1 that runs the lights. The hard drive crapped out in it last night and I ordered a new one. for the time being I installed LOR on the new computer on my desk. Now I can't register the software any more and I have 1 computer running in demo mode and 1 computer that will be fixed in a couple of days that will need a license too. I have sent a request ticket to support and PM'ed Dan. Hopefully I will get things going real soon!
  2. Very nice, kinda gives me some Ideas to use!
  3. Thanks for the compliments! I do stay up late alot. The mini mega tree uses 4 channels, 24 strings(6 of each color).The strings go over the top and down the other side for a 48 string effect. I also put more then 1 thing on each channel, such as candles on porch and tree out by road. Kinda doubled up you might say. Made for more items dancing with the music. I bought 2 more units so next year I can do a little betterwith 48 channels. And Dan tell alex thanks for the compliments on the yeller car! Then take him to yellowstang73.com so he can get a good look!Ole yeller is my baby.
  4. Here's my first try at animated lights. Ya'll will have to forgive me for the video quality. This is over an acre of lights and decorations and was taken from across the road. 16 channels, and aprox 20,000 lights. Sorry but there is no way possible to get the whole display in the camera frame at one time. The kids loved it, and thats what it's all about to me!
  5. CheapViagra-Freporn? Bet he's got an interesting Christmas Display!
  6. I could help out with the supercharger for the back-up generator, your gonna need some serious horsepower there!
  7. I used plumbers putty and pressed it in the mortar grooves.
  8. Thanks Grimshady, Thats a nice setup! Casket jumper is really cool! Pretty much answers my question too. I'll only have 12 floods @100 watts = 10.1 amps and can reduce that to 8.2 if I drop to 75 watt bulbs, so I think it will work great. I'll have my relay wired and give it a try as soon as my LOR gets here. ( hopefully in time to play with it a little at Halloween). Thanks for the quick replies and the great info! YS
  9. I broke down strings last year and put them on my truck. Steven is right about the bulbs being 2.5 volts , 5 of them to a string work perfect on a 12volt dc system!
  10. Thanks for the quick reply. The deal is wife says we don't get rid of the christmas scenery that we already have. I agree with her on this as I have put a lot of labor and love into these cutouts. But the flood lights will detract from the effect I want to achieve with the LOR. I dug thru my old relays and found one that is rated 30 amps @ 110v ac it triggers with 12 dc. I dug around and found a 12v dc 1 amp power supply that works this relay fine. All I want to do with this is kill the floods at different times throughout the show. With this power supply only pulling 1 amp I should be able to run a couple of strings of lights with it, ie: when floods are off these mini lights will be on. I agree that it probably wouldn't be wise to fade, shimmer or flicker the relay and most times it will be steady off, with sometimes on.
  11. Hi, I'm new to LOR (just ordered my first 16 channel). I have aprox. 2 1/2 acres of front yard and have been adding stuff every year to my christmas decorations. I have lots of plywood cutouts with flood lights lighting them. My question is can I run my floodlights off a relay and fire the relay off one channel of the LOR? or possibly 2 relays and fire them with 2 channels on the LOR. Was thinking of maybe 20amp relays. I have 2-50 amp and 1-30 amp circuits dedicated for christmas lights now, and will put the LOR on the 30-amp. keep the floodlights on one of the 50-amp sides and use relays to trigger them with the LOR. Is any one else wired this way, or will it even work?
