  1. Im changing over to S5 and in S4 I have multiple networks. Aux A-G. This year Im changing out my 24 string CCR tree to DMX pixels so Aux A-D is no longer in use. My question is, can I just leave those blank (A-D) and run E-G? or do I have to start at A? Thanks!
  2. I heard from my friend Jim here on the forum there are some good tutorial videos be Default? Can someone point me int he direction to view them? thanks!
  3. Hi Steve- I do multiple houses ( 38 this year) and I have never used pictures for viewing. I just use several dots for example: Upper eves - four colors- one for each, lower eves - four colors, one for each, mini trees- four colors ( we use 6 mini trees per house, so 6 sets....and so on...you really dont need to have that much detail until you go pixels and matrices...hope this helps- thanks!
  4. So I created a pixel tree sequence in xlights and then converted to LOR- Im running a pixicon 16 - the sequence randomly stalls when playing in sequence editor- any ideas as to why???? My SE files are HUGE as we do 40 houses of regular LED lights..Im running DMX on this tree- thanks!
  5. I would like a copy please= debtoews@comcast.net thanks!
  6. Hi Amy! Im Deb and also a Nurse! Welcome :-)
  7. an RBG mega tree and 1 neighbor wanted a small matrix- I always buy extras boards for backup...I was wondering if you are going to make it up here this year- always welcome anytime!
  8. I got 2 of them! Gotta have fast fingers :-)
  9. Love your show! I already have 5 pixel tree sequences done...a lot more to go!
  10. We have a 24 CCR tree and love it! The kids call it the Christmas TV....lol Adding a pixel tree this year because of the cool effects especially the spiral effect!
  11. Well for us, managing the traffic also allows us time to talk to the folks that come out and see us. There have been so many blessings just by doing that it makes all the time, money and effort worth it all. People are in awe of the music and lights and many get emotional during the show. It touches their heart and many times, reminds them of days in the past. It makes new memories and traditions for families as well. What an honor to be a part of that! So I will suggest that maybe you try it for an hour some evening, maybe you might have a different opinion afterwards :-) Merry Christmas!
  12. We formed a nonprofit and take donations but even with that, we have put alot of our personal money into it- worth every dime!
  13. We run approx 125 16-channel controllers plus 24 CCR ribbons :-)
  14. All of us that put on Santa Claus Lane have full-time jobs too. It sad for your community that you have decided to turn off the lights for good, but if your heart isnt into it, then it is what it is. Maybe in the future things will change and you can return. Merry Christmas!
  15. In our biggest network we have just under 500 channels and 12 ELL's- We run 9 networks and 50 ELL's
  16. You gotta manage the problem and not let it manage you.....we have significant traffic come thru our neighborhood...more than 10,000 cars so far since Black Friday...we manage the traffic just fine with 5 people and a bunch of traffic cones. If someone is doing something stupid/wrong, we address it right then. To me closing down means the jerks wins....that will never happen at my light show.
  17. With a 34 home show- we have to manage our traffic. Since Nov. 24th over 10,000 cars have come thru including party buses, buses, limos etc. We place cones in the gutters to prevent people from parking. If they want to walk, they have to park off the lane. We have multiple people out during show times to talk to people and answer questions and monitor for issues. Thank God we havent had drunken stupid people. Now thats not without saying we have neighbors that complain about noise, traffic, trash and the light are too bright...(???) Really a shame that these folks just shut down rather than try and manage the problem. Im sure a few phone calls to the local party bus outfits could have helped. K6ccc was here recently and he can vouch for our operation :-)
