  1. By the way, I am presuming you want to ultimately use the low voltage LEDs with one of the LOR's DC controllers (http://store.lightorama.com/cmdedcca2.html ) to control the lights in your display.... right?
  2. Ok, so I therefore presume these are low voltage lights something like 24v or 31v since they have a transformer. I have only done this with 24v and 31v lights so the following only applies to low voltage lights. You will want a switch mode power supply that will have an AC 240v input but will output a DC voltage somewhat similar to the output voltage of your lights (i.e. a 24v or 30v switch mode power supply). You don't need the transformer that came with the lights so put that aside. There are usually three wires going from the string of lights to the controller, So cut the lights between t
  3. I have done this with many multifunction lights here in NZ but they tend to be lights that have some sort of transformer, either separate or as part of the multifunction controller so although they input 240v, they output something much lower voltage DC ( 24v or 31v for example). Do your lights have a transformer or are they true 240v lights?
  4. So here is a vid of my first ever display. Small compared to most but gotta start somewhere. Total of 56 channels used, all with DC boards and went straight into DMX and RGB ( which I new nothing about only a few short months ago). Rest of the property and house ( not in video) is the static part of the display. As you can prob see from the video I am having a little trouble with one strip on my roof so work to be done there. Any, I'm pleased with my first go at musical blinky :-)
  5. Looks great. And only 16 channels! You've managed to make it look like a lot more channels - well done. I'll be happy if my first show this year looks half as good as that.
  6. I ordered mine in the short extended period of the sale and my tracking status shows it arrived in the country today ( way down here in NZ) so maybe contact LOR to see what has happened.
  7. Churchfamilyfarms, welcome to the fun. I'm new this year too and starting out small scale this year ( 32 to 56 channels depending on how far I get) so I'm not sure it's too late to get started if your expectations are realistic ( although I think you did say you we're more geared towards 2013) . I think some people who have been doing this for years have huge displays that take a long time to setup but we new guys aren't at that point yet so we don't necessarily need 12 months to get going. There is some really helpful advice on this forum but unfortunately I think that some forget that we all
  8. Got my Paypal request last week so hopefully soon.
  9. Not yet but I did put my order in during the extended days right at the very end so I'm expecting to be one of the last. No worries though, I have plenty else to do.
  10. I try to use only my Debit card for Internet purchases and only load money onto it when I'm about to use it. Only a very small amount of money is on the card when not being used. That way any scum trying to use it can only spend a minimal amount.
  11. It's pretty good but I find it takes forever ( and sometimes not at all) to load images or videos that people post. Even some straight forward links sometimes don't connect and I have to go back to the forum via the web browser to see the linked items. Anyone else found this?
  12. Given that its for Halloween, "sinning" as a typo seems appropriate :-)
  13. I posted a short vid in this part of the forum - It's just a quick sample of the first song I've sequenced.
