  1. Ditto Go Fish. 1st year wife said I had to do the "Christmas with a capital C". Really easy to do with a great beat. Glad I did it And have it in every year show. Have had to update it as the display has grown every year. Do it and you will be glad you did.

  2. One group that comes to mind that is very youth oriented would be GO FISH. They have some excellent tunes that could work out well for a Christmas themed display.

  3. One thing in your favor is that golf carts are not wired like cars. The frames are floating, not a ground. As long as you keep the negative output from the DC to DC converter separated from your 36V grounds you should be fine. In many cases, you would probably be fine even if they were combined, depending on how the converter is designed. I would probably use a DPDT center off switch, so you could select on/off/sequenced. I don't think you will have any issues at all wiring this, or making it work as you want.

  6. So after being shown how to correctly run the software without an adapter, would you like to retract your statement?

  7. I'll second that it works quite well. The key thing is that if you don't have a USB adapter plugged in, make sure your network configuration doesn't think you have a USB adapter configured. Most of the E1.31 testing I have done, including a small demo/presentation to city council was done with just the laptop, ethernet cable, and E681 driving one or more pixel strings. Much of it from the sequence editor. If you tell it that it has USB hardware, it tends to perform poorly when trying to initialize it and play the sequence. And while yes, the PC will generate the effects, and send them out

  9. I almost spit out a mouthful of water when I saw the title of this thread. Talk about an opportunity to "rack" up some cheap warning points. But I won't... it's too easy... I'll just say that Ron, I hope your pulsing columns bring great joy this holiday season...

  10. Hi Linda, Ok, a couple of questions. By controller I presume that you are talking about an AC controller versus a DC controller. Now sounds like you have an AC to DC converter to supply 12V DC. This in turn going to a speed controller that will actually feed the DC motor that does all of the work. Linda, I dont know how much electrical back ground you have. You could get a solid state relay that is driven by the controller output and that would turn power on and off to the 12 volts to the speed controller. Turning power on and off to the AC to DC power supply can cause surges that are hard on

  11. There is an easy way to do this. Start by opening a sequence file in the editor. Goto tools then to channel configuration. A popup will appear and in the lower left of the popup is a "PRINT" button. click on it and it will print all the controllers with there assigned controller number, channel number, item name. Page will look simular to this: # Type Network Unit Circuit Name ____________________________________________________________________________________ 1 Light-O-Rama Controller Regular 01 1 Arch 1 Segment 1 2 Light-O-Rama Controlle
