  1. Finally got around to a video of the finished landscape lights, excuse the colors on the video. I also have 1 rgb that has as issue and needs to be replaced. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKV3csUUZ58
  2. It's my understanding this w/o being too difficult, I would say yes, but cant answer on the subject of pixie since I dont have any.
  3. The jumper that is being mentioned, must be on newer AC controllers. I have the CTB-16D's. I could be wrong but I dont think they have a jumper like wahts being mentioned
  4. I am not trying to make it difficult. Just trying to understand before I screw something up. Forgive me for just wanting to be sure. Thanks for the answer.
  5. Thank you JR, I am trying figure out how to connect to a controller
  6. I am happy that you got your info, but the original issue for me has not been answered, thanks again
  7. Thanks, but I am not dealing with a pixie 16, I am just trying to figure out how to use my new director in my network. With all due respect, someone else brought the pixie 16 into the equation
  8. Lets get back to the original post please. I am trying to figure out the basic for power hookup on this director. Thanks
  9. Documentation is lacking in certain areas. I think they all assume we are all wizards
  10. I went this route during the sale to do away with using a PC ssince I upgraded to the latest software my old laptop was XP. So rather than buy a cheap laptop or go thru the hassle of running cables out of the house
  11. good question, i did not think of that
  12. Ok, just rcvd the new N2 G4 director, i have been reading on the website and the so called manual to determine how to hook up power. First of all I am a detail type of person , so for me the the documentation could be better in this area 1. So to use the closest controller to power the director is a little bit more vague to me. Most people can probably go...oh , that's easy. So. to use this setup I would plug a cat5 cable(crossover) into the network 1 port and plug the other end into the controller cat5 port? Then daisy chain my network cables as normal? 2. Using a power adapter is straight forward
  13. I also had the coms error with paypal on my phone which did not help matters
  14. I would have been ok if the power had not gone out. And of course I dont have a back up UPS
  15. I have no idea where to post this, but my experience was very eventful to say the least. I had 2 items picked out in my shopping cart and had just entered my CC number, when the power in our neighborhood went out. I scrambled for my phone to go thru the whole process once again. Checked out only to find that one of my items was already sold out. So, again thru the phone process. Luckily I was able to get one item that I picked out. Of all the times for power to go out.
  16. Thats good info to know. THis is my first project using hot glue. I will have to check out the flex seal products. Luckly I have just 1 light done.. Thanks for the info
  17. I did and it looks ok. Right now I have the intensity set at 50%. I'll tweak more when I get them all built.
  18. Here is 1 of 8 completed. Sorry for the larger size photos.
  19. Then mount the RGB module after soldering on extension wires and hot glue into place
  20. Then I had to gut the inside of the fixture...remove the lampholder and wire
  21. Here is my update to the project. First I would like to say that Amazon is a wonderful thing. Returning items is soooo easy. I ordered so many different types of landscape fixtures to see what would work, that it wasn't even funny. I had to find a fixture that would fit a sq RGB module and still have room to terminate wiring. So the first picture is what I came up with. They look a lot like the old style Malibu pathway fixtures, even down to stake and how the original wiring goes in.
  22. That was my other choice. Thanks for input. I learned my lesson many years ago on copper clad aluminum wire
  23. Good tips, I already know this. Thanks. I will be using direct burial for sure. Since I dont plan on taking down and putting up landscape lights like I would for my xmas show, I have no problem w/landscape wire. And I do use 4 cond speaker wire in my show where its warranted. BTW I am also an Elect/Tech so everything I do I take into account wire size, amps, volt drops etc.....
  24. What kind of wire did h use to interconnect the ligjts. I was thinking about sprinkler wire. I know its solid core, they r not gonna b moved
