First off, it's RGB. There are tons of resources on this forum about RGB products. See the CCR forum - DMX forum.

How about you either stop drinking, learn to spell, or figure out what you really want to ask.

Whoa, come on guys.
The OP for this thread is only 14, so cut a little slack.

This forum has had more than enough bad threads this year for sure.

I agree that the poll is pretty much useless too, but don't crucify the poor kid over it.
We all started out somewhere and had to learn. At least the OP is trying to ask and get directions from the seasoned folks on here!

As for your question Matt, do a search for RGB in the threads here and also look over on the DIY forums:

http://doityourselfchristmas.com/forums/forum.php

http://response-box.com/rgb/2009/06/micro-pixels-first-test/

as they are more of the place for info on RGB stings, intelligent pixels, and the current state of things in the pixel world right now.
It is pretty new so the info on it can be spotty but you can find things out there and in this forum if you search for it.

I can understand why.

Read my first post. That will give you a clue where to start here.

Ok something wrong with HolidayCoros website as I post this the links are dead, some just forward to Voulusion to buy the domain so theres one issue.

As for RGB strips, not enough emphasis on R G B. They are what takes this from a non plug and play setup to brain surgery. The RBG,s have many functions which Im learning as well as we chat. To do an RBG you realize it takes a specific controller setup, a specific way to program, and again specific power requirements.

If you are really looking into this there is an awesome thread on this already. Please maybe Im steering you wrong but start here

http://forums.lightorama.com/forum75/31417-2.html

This has taken a lot of fuzzy questions out of my head and now its black and white for me. Once again Ive been working in this direction and Im sure all the Beta Testers in this forum are almost sick of me emailing them constantly. That thread is amazing though start there. As well the poster Harrison0550 search for his as well as it generates a lot of answers that you didnt even know to ask yet.

Once again RGB, will save you some hassle in the future. And there is a whole area here that is RGB info packed in the DMX forum area.

My appologies to all.

Just a bit hypocritical compared to post 11, don't you think?

When I click the HolidayCoro link this is what pops up:

Thank you for visiting HolidayCoro.com! We are still in business and getting ready for a busy 2012!

To make your online ordering process as simple as possible, we will go live with our new website in the first week of January. Thank you for your patience - I'm sure you'll find it was worth the wait!

David is revamping his site, so watch for the new site to reopen hopefully sometime this week. So currently if you have any saved links to items there, they may change and no longer be active when his new site launches.

Just know some of my saved links to specific items I have in my favorites will return a 404 page not found error at the time of this posting.

The easiest way to get into RGB is LOR's CCR (not the least expensive). The easiest way to learn abut RGB and DMX is start with one of David's (holidaycoro)sample set's (see his board later this week). Also watch the RGB video series he has created. Checkout Enttec's DMX converter.

of RGB I like R and G best, mainly because I can copy and paste old Red and Green sequenced channels into them. B/Blue is a great color, but I find less use for it ... I find red, green and white/clear to be the primary colors of Christmas shows ... but with RGB you don't have to pick, just find the exact color you want and you can do it !! I have a whole tray of blue incand. minis ... if someone wants to buy them.
