How many channels are you adding this year?

Recommended Posts

Guest guest

I currently have 80 channels in my display, but only used 36 for the show portion. I am going to hit my wife up to buy me 4 more boards (at least) this year, and I will bump my show channels up to at least 96. What is everyone else planning on adding this year? I will be adding in my mini trees and my mega tree into my show this year (they already have 16 channels each). I will leave at least 2 controllers for the static portion that is animated and use the rest in my show. Like most of you, I didn't even have my lights down before I already had one song programmed using the new channel set up for this year. Oh well, I can certainly think of worse things to be addicted to.

I have 64, I am going to 128, and have already run out of channels ! may have
to bump it up to 144 . Thank Goodness there is the new lower cost controller kit
coming out. Even at full price it is a great deal. Come on Summer Sale !

Just bought my first 32 Channel package this year but already have budgeted for 64 more. I plan on buying at least 4 of the 16 channel kits when they are available (or on sale maybe)

As I design my show, I keep seeing where I need at least the 96 to do what I want and that is shorting myself some of the additional color control I want. I can see where I would realistically need 192 to do what I want to do.

Guess I am caught up in all of it though....

My wife giggles at me when I mention Christmas stuff now. Says I am like a kid...

I'll probably pick up 5 boards during the sale, so 80 more channels. Hopefully I can finally get rid of my remaining SSRs and DIO card...

I had 32 this year and used them all. Next year I am looking at maybe 16 more for my first mega tree, and if the wife is in a really good mood, maybe going wireless too.

I'm not sure yet. I have 184 channels already but I may buy a a few more 16 channel boards just in case I find that I need them or to have a few spares.

I had zero channels in 06 but I found a 16 channel board under the tree. :waycool: I must have been a good boy last year. I hope to be good enough this year to get another 16 channel board. 2007 my first year with hopefully 32 channels. I can't hardly wait.

WHOLLY (*&(*^# is that expensive. Wish I had that kind of Christmas budget.

I plan on adding just another 16 next year. Figure 16 a year until i'm satisfied.

That is a lot of channels!

Is this for your house or some sort of commerical display?

This was my first year, had 48 channels. Already planning on going to 96 or 112 for next year. Going to talk the the electronics class where I work and see if they are insterested in building boards for me. If so may I can add some more or at least save some money over the Showtime boxes.
