  1. Hahahahah.... I hope not..I bought boxes of lights at the end of last season.. Hate for them to go to waste....
  2. Hi, Thanks for the info. What's the advantage of the Gen 3....and any ETA on them? Thanks! Dwayne
  3. Hey All, A newbie here.... I've been waiting for months for the big sale. I see the CTB16PC is on sale....but now I read a few blurbs about a Gen 3 controller? Here's the obvious question.... Do I pull the trigger...or will the Gen 3 units be out soon? Will they be on-sale? My plan is to purchase he CTB16PC (assembled), Premium software (i need X-10 control) and the USB485B adapter. I plan on using "Canned" shows, as I know it's too late to learn it all...this late in the season. Thoughts? TIA Dwayne
  4. Oh well.... Atleast we see SOME movement....
  5. "Gen 2 controllers" ????!! Do tell!!! Info please!! (or where I can go to find it!) Dwayne
  6. Hey Thanks Guys!! I DID doi a search...but you are right...I have no idea what a SPT was!!?? Now that I look at them...they look a little "thin" gauge-wise. The store bought cord "look" safer? Is it all in my head...or do you run several SPT's to a Surge strip and then to a thicker cable...or am i worried about nothing..and when is the SUMMER SALE???
  7. Hey All, I actually have a very hi-end Crestron Automation system (that's what I do for a living)...so triggering the inflatables to go on and off is no problem...but I wanted to have the inflatables work with the "show" program. How does the unit (either the showtime or the CTB) "trigger" the x-10 command? Is the x-10 signal transmitted through one of the 16ch plugs? What I'm trying to do, is to trigger the x-10 event to turn off the Inflatables, in time with the music "show". The Inflatables would be connected to a separate 15A circuit. Thanks! Dwayne
  8. Hey All, Where do you all buy your extension cords? There has to be a better place than Home Depot?! TIA Dwayne
  9. Thanks Guys. Looking at the numbers, if I buy the CTB16PC, the advanced software, and the USB485B...I get a total of about $ 431. If I go with the 16ch Showtime Starter w/ same upgrades...then I'm looking at about $ 451 Correct? As far as the inflatables...Using the advanced software..how does the unit (either the showtime or the CTB) "trigger" the x-10 command? Is the x-10 signal transmitted through one of the 16ch plugs? What I'm trying to do, is to trigger the x-10 event to turn off the Inflatables, in time with the music "show". The Inflatables would be connected to a separate 15A circuit. Thanks! Dwayne
  10. Ok...one more question.. Looking at the CTB16PC ($ 249) and the advanced software ($ 139) it looks like I'm set?! The description for the CTB16PC is a bit brief. It just says that it lacks the bells and whistles of the Showtime Pro. What other differences does it have...over the CTB16PC (other than an ID wheel). Thanks again!!
  11. OH...one last question.... We have about 7 or so inflatables. Do you guys control them via the Controlers...or are they on a seperate system? I imagine an Inflatable would use up a lot of the lighting available power. How much power DOES an Inflatable use? How do you calculate? TIA Dwayne Attached files
  12. Hey Guys, Thanks so much for the quick response! I have a better idea of what to buy, now. Just waiting on the sale!! Thanks again! Dwayne
  13. Hi All, This will be my first year...and I am hoping the summer sale will allow me to purchase the Showtime Pro 16 w/Advanced software upgrade. Anybody know what the sale price might be? Controller question: I control my light via X-10 (via Crestron) to simply turn my lights on and off at a certain time. What I'd like to do, is maintain this simple task, but turn on/off all of the lights via x-10 (controlled by the ShowTime Pro 16 unit) at the end of my sequenced "show". For example. At 6pm, ShowTime turns on all the lights. At 7pm...ShowTime dramatically dims all the lights to OFF...then starts the show (say...10min show). At the end of the "show"..certain lights remain on..and the rest go off. This is repeated throughout the night. Question: Do I need the advanced software to do this? I assume so..because it's the only one that has x-10 control. TIA Dwayne
