  1. Round power cable

    Thanks for the info everyone. I forgot to check the notify for replies and just seen all the replies posted. I will check these out. Thanks Wayne
  2. Round power cable

    Is anyone using the round 18 gauge 4 conductor power cord similar to what H/C has in the 3 conductor. H/C does not have the 4 conductor round and I have done some searching and have found a couple of possibility's. But thought I would ask here to see if anyone has used any and where you got it from. I am wanting to make long cords for my lor floods. Thanks Wayne
  3. Bullet pixels in candy canes

    Thanks for the info everyone. I had an order for the HC presale for other things, so last night I added 2 dumb pixel strips to my order to play with and see how they would work. Wayne
  4. Bullet pixels in candy canes

    Thanks for the info everyone. I went up to the attic and dug out my candy canes and they are the white with red striping also. George, I should have said bullet nodes. Did you loop the wire from the other end back thru the tube or on the outside of the tube? Thanks Wayne
  5. Has anyone taken the icans of of the walmart candy canes and put bullet pixels in them? I hate to use valuable lor channels for a spinner and was thinking about doing the canes with the pixels. If anyone has done this, did they look ok? Or is it a waste of time to do it that way? Thanks for any info. Wayne
  6. Got all of my stuff down

    A week ago we were 15 below zero and today we set a new record in Fort Wayne Indiana, 59 degrees. Took yesterday and today off work to take advantage of the warm weather to get all of the decorations down. Worked in my short sleeve shirt this afternoon. Now we are supposed to get rain later tonight with freezing rain towards morning and 1"-3" of snow tomorrow. Glad I got stuff down now. Wayne
  7. Shorten 5mm LED light strings?

    Yes it is! I have done that with some of my yard prop's that I converted over to led's and I also made custom lengths of icilce lights for my eves. You basically start over with a string set. You will need to make a rectifer and then figure out what resistance you will need for the correct current for the new led string you make or modify. This is the article I basically followed and about the 4th post down is a string builder pdf file: http://doityourselfchristmas.com/forums/showthread.php?24777-Cutting-LED-Light-Strands Hope this helps Wayne
  8. TSO 2017 tour dates are out

    Just got home from the TSO show here in Fort Wayne IN. Thought the tickets were a little expensive at first, but after watching the show, Glad I went to see them. Very impressive show I thought. Wish I had a couple of the lasers they use. I also liked the live gas flames in a few of there song's. I could feel the heat from them. Wayne
  9. Track timming

    Don Yes I know that timing grids have nothing to do with the channel configuration file. What is the proper way to insert a .05 grid on a cell that is 3 minutes long from the start to the end after I import my configuration and now have an empty channels on that track? If I select the free form grid I get different cell sizes, if I select fixed grid I cant change any of the timing lines. So what I have done on a couple of songs is right click and selected insert multiple timings and started at 0 and put in a number of around 4500 to start with and looked at my grid to see if it is uniform, if it is not I undo that and try a higher or lower number to get what looks like an even grid and check it for size by hoovering above the grid at different places to get the channel pop up that tells you the timing and size. Thanks Wayne
  10. Track timming

    I am updating my sequences. I am adding 2 tracks to my sequences. So my master sequence I have setup the way I want them displayed. So I have saved the file and then updated my template file. When I open another sequence to add these tracks, What is the best way to do this? if I do a straight import it creates the 2 new tracks with no timing grid on them and then I struggle to get a timing grid layed out. If I create the 2 tracks before importing then it gives me the option for each track as I add it, to do the timing grid. I am using a .05 grid and the only way I seem to be able to get that is to use the other timing and type .05 in the box. This then becomes a fixed timing that I can not adjust. Am I doing this right with either of these 2 ways or is there a different way to do this? Thanks Wayne
  11. 10 watt RGB floods controller pigtail

    Thanks for the info, but for me that would be a waste as I don't have a need for the other end. Does anyone know if this plug from holiday coro will fit the 10 watt rgb : http://www.holidaycoro.com/product-p/736-m.htm Thanks Wayne
  12. Does anyone know where you can get extra 4 wire pigtails that come with the 10 watt rgb flood lights? I am wanting to put a backup controller together in an enclosure, but cant find any pig tails on the lor store site. Does anyone know if they are available from lor or if there is another vendor that you can get them from? Thanks Wayne
