  1. I took my old landscape lights and gutted them. I then installed four of the rectangular dumb rgb modules in each light and run them on a CMB24 in stand alone mode.
  2. Here is a basic guide to get you a starting point. https://www.rapidtables.com/web/color/RGB_Color.html
  3. This should be posted in "The Coffee Shop."
  4. As suggested, get something like these and cut an X in them. https://smile.amazon.com/Diameter-Synthetic-Grommets-Protection-One-Sided/dp/B085T451L1/ref=sr_1_19?dchild=1&keywords=black+rubber+grommets&qid=1610899789&sr=8-19 Of course you will have to measure for size.

    What next?

    Also start thinking about upgrading your license to Pro. If you are going to start getting into the pixels you will need it.
  6. April, sign up for email notices.
  7. That's okay, even I need help every now and then 🤣🤣🤣
  8. The original CCR's were LPD6803 so just find a place that sells them. https://www.superlightingled.com/lpd6803-ic-programmable-led-strips-c-5_27.html
  9. I did, they are in the store. But I guess they are gone. 😁 http://store.lightorama.com/orcocori.html
  10. OMG, jstorms!?!?!? It's true, you are alive!!! 🤣🤣🤣
  11. Honestly, you are not going to get the look of ribbon without replacing with another ribbon. Bullets won't get you that look unless they are placed very very close together but then you would need way more then 50 pixels to cover the same length of the ribbon which of course would mean a lot more programming. Some like the ribbon as it gives more of a line look while other like the bullets as they can be individually seen and look more traditional.
  12. The original CCR's were 50 pixels/150 led's not 150 pixels as that would be 450 led's. Here is the wording from the CCR manual: Introduction The Light-O-Rama (LOR) Cosmic Color Ribbon is a flexible ribbon that includes a controller and low voltage power supply. It understands and automatically detects both LOR and DMX protocols. The ribbon has 150 super bright RGB LEDs spaced evenly along one side of a 197” flexible circuit board. The flexible circuit board is made weatherproof by sealing it in a rectangular UV resistant silicone tube.
  13. That's right, thanks for the reminder. 😁
  14. I would recommend the same as Jim, the original CCR's had 50 pixels or 150 led's so if you purchased the Pixie ll with 50 pixels to replace them you shouldn't have to change anything if the original CCR's were set to dual normal. All you would have to do is give the new Pixie ll the same ID as the number of channels would be the same.
  15. They didn't tell you that the cost is $3,999.99 😁
  16. It will definitely need a high speed enhanced network.
  17. You have to completely remove S4 from the machine and then install S5. If you want to go back to S4 then you need to completely remove S5 and then reinstall S4. Keep in mind that any sequences that you upgrade to S5 cannot be converted back down to S4.
  18. Ribbon trees are better for graphics/pics while bullet trees are good for designs and swirls. It just depends on look you are going for.

    Your Basic license also doesn't allow you to do much, so if you are interested in DMX and pixel megatrees you will need to upgrade your license.
  20. You didn't mention how many networks, speed setting or if it's enhanced.
  21. Pixels are very easy to use as I run 30+ pixel controllers. The key is to spend January thru September getting everything working and set up. Once it is set up and working, don't mess with it. You started changing matrixes into trees in the middle of shows, just leave it be until January when it's time to start messing with it again.
  22. Just in case a buyer asks, the original pixels and bulbs are still available in the LOR store: http://store.lightorama.com/rgbpiprandpa.html
  23. I live on a corner lot so I have a side yard that my wife normally puts a static display in. The side of the house is 41 feet from the ground to the top of the house and she wants a large tree. I was thinking a 24x200 or 24x150 flat tree with a 6' star attached at the top of the house coming to the ground. I will also be adding three 8' pixel trees to the main display in front. Currently calculating everything I will need to catch some of these pre-sales that will be starting in January.
  24. I stopped using Xenon strobes four years ago when I was replacing 50% a year. Not worth it.
