  1. RIP Robin... Wow, just watched some of the videos, it's been years since I saw them, Great Display!
  2. The fuse holder is shot! I have had many of those fuse holders go bad, the cap holds the fuse too tight and does not allow the spring in the cap to push the fuse down on the bottom of the fuse holder. This creates a loose fit in the holder and arcing occurs causing heat build up and melting the bottom of the holder. Sometimes it melts just enough to cause there to be no connection but I have had one melt completely in two. I have spare holders that LOR sent me years ago for just such an occasion and after going a couple years with no problems I had one melt just last week on our Mega tree. I had it back up and running before the first runthrough of the show was complete!
  3. Chuck is an instigator!
  4. Looks good so far but just wait until your wife goes to use her favorite cutting board!
  5. I have the same issue when using xLights. To control the E681 when it is plugged directly into the computers ethernet port I have to disable my wireless card first. I was hoping it was just an xLights thing.... I too, will be watching and waiting for a solution.

  7. And the 28' LVL 4x4 posts with attached CCR's that the stars are mounted on are hung from the loft floor. Attached files
  8. Tear down has been done for a while but not everything was stored, especially the new builds. As of today, both 9' RGB exploding stars are mounted on the barn wall. Attached files

  10. tonyski wrote: Truer words..... Dan said quite some time ago they were working on new tutorial videos but so far nothing.... I've been at this for 5 years and I'm still learning new tricks and tips all the time. After helping a few people learn some of the basics of using the sequence editor , it would be so much less painful of a process with some updated videos to help step new users through the process. Even some veteran users could benefit from seeing some of the new features put into practice... Patiently waiting....

  12. I'm not a computer "guy" but shouldn't the LOR installer make the default directories the same on all machines regardless of what the OS is? It would make things so much simpler.... Reading this thread, changing the directory structure is something that I clearly need to do... I'm not exactly sure how to do what you describe but really need to figure it out...
  13. And I thought you knew better... You won't find S3 on my show computer until after the season...

The base is made with a 2x6's and there is eight 15' long sections that fold to 7.5' long. I used 4" door hinges for the joint where they fold and to lock each section to the next .They stack together and are stored in the loft of my barn. I spend time during the summer building props with easy-up and easy-down in mind.
