  1. On gray electrical pvc one end is already flared like a built in coupler like you described. No need to glue or screw just push them together and pull them apart at the end of the season for storage. Also no need for supports or guide ropes as the arches will stay up even in storms.
  2. I use the C9 pix-a-bulb/ brilliant bulb smart pixels and control them with a Falcon 4. I prefer the gray electrical pvc pipe as it is darker in color so hides easier in the dark and I just electrical tape the smart pixels along the outside curve of the arch. I also use the C9 pixels for my yard perimeter and my roof so I have a ton of them.
  3. I run four driveway arches and I use 1.5 inch Gray electrical pvc, 34 feet long to span an 18 foot driveway. I take 2 inch pvc 18 inches long and put them one foot in the ground on each side of the driveway and slip the 1.5 inch pipe inside them.
  4. You will need to setup your Network Preferences on the show computer. You can go in to NP and export them from the garage computer and import them to the show computer.
  5. Nothing, I haven't been adding to the show this year. Instead, I have been doing things to make the show setup faster and easier to add on. I have added six 20 amp circuits to a sub-panel in my basement so that adds three 20 amp outlets to both ends of the house. I also installed four 15 amp outlets to the roof so I no longer have to string extension cords off the roof.
  6. Run flat cat6 cable through a window. It lays completely flat and you can still fully close the window. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00WD017DE/?coliid=I2W7X3HDRHSXMK&colid=61DMUXRRSCM3&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
  7. Yep, most common networks for most people are and I on the other hand am not average and always change my home networks to something like and my show is
  8. What is the IP for the ethernet port on your computer. Most have them set for DHCP so the computer gets the IP from the router. You need to go in to the ethernet settings for the computer and set the IP for static and give it, this way you are in the same subset as the pixielink.
  9. Make your own, vampire plugs and some SPT wire.
  10. Double check the controller/starting location in the programming. I don't know about S5 but in SS you designate bottom left, bottom right and so on.
  11. Dang, you all are some old farts in here. 😁
  12. Hey dibble, ummm I mean Chance, I keep getting the two of you confused. 😁
  13. I also doubt they are the older original CCR's as those were LPD6803 and had four wires as they had a separate clock wire.
