  1. I was still contemplating ordering over 100 50ct strings for some smaller spiral trees
  2. Im glad they are aware of this I just purchased a ton of c6s and retrofit c9 bulbs r,g,b,w hopefully no failures all 70ct and 100ct strands
  3. these topics that i found in the search on the forums is where i came up with my ideas http://forums.lightorama.com/index.php?/topic/14437-new-twist-on-candy-cane-spinners-idea/?hl=%20candy%20%20cane%20%20spinner post number 52 and 53 his facebooke link is where i got my idea from http://forums.lightorama.com/index.php?/topic/18895-pinwheel-test/page-2
  4. Alright ill ask the seller to look at that, any big differences in the gen2 controllers vs my gen3's?? Im also using all commercial leds next year if that makes a difference on the gen2
  5. Hey everyone im looking into purchasing some used controllers but he is unsure of what gen they are but said they wer bought a few years ago... just wondering when they wer first sold and also what is tge the difference in a gen2 vs my gen3 controllers I already have?? Thanks Blake
  6. On a new post or on this one? Im mainly interested in controllers if any are gen3
  7. Lewisport Ky LOR user first year 36ch and next year 30k+ LEDs and 128ch
  8. Looks great how many channels are you using this is my first year as well
  9. i have an older Hp quad core media pc (like from 2007 i think?) it currently has 2g of ram and a 500g hard drive with my external 1TB hard drive for backing up and audio storage and when i run the visualizer it sometimes hesitates and just yesterday i had the show stutter for a min or 2 like 3 times in a row but it panned out... i know you dont need a gamer PC or anything to run the programs but im contemplating going to a dedicated SSD drive to run LOR and all its components and im also putting in a fresh 4g of ram and possibly an upgraded video card but unsure on that right now... i just wanted to get some others opinions and or thoughts for upgrades. im running 32 channels and next year it will be 128 so i know i will have bigger problems as far as lag and stuttering or slowing if i dont address them now it will be a head ache lol thanks again guys! Blake
  10. hate to hear of anyone selling or getting out of this amazing hobby! but on a better note please pm me i have cash ready to purchase some gear
  11. i just purchased a bunch from menards theyr on sale but i bet since their big sale started today they will most likely be gone
  12. Merry Christmas from Kentucky!
  13. Well I just bought a bunch of blue led snowflakes for the roof, hopefully that will look good caught them onsale at Menards
  14. And lots of it!! I thought 1000' would be way more than I needed and im out lol Start off next years supply rte now during all these sales I just purchased 4000'
  15. Good looking display! But if I build a tree it will be a minimum of 25' tall
  16. Im thinking do the 7 snow flakes across the roof in a zig zag pattern and ill also have the roof ridge outlined next year to draw your eye higher as well and then start planning the mega tree id love to do a 25-30' but id have to have a pretty big base and at that height id eat up 32-64 channels alone on the tree easily
  17. yessir my thoughts as well as i said above in the 2014 list of must haves if i can snag up some BIG snow flakes on sale id like to have 7 offset on the roof, and funny you say that the spinners were built to go there and all the ice and snow prevented me from mounting them so i attached long steaks to them pounded into the ground with 2 guy wires also thought about a big merry christmas sign up there
  18. dont know if its much help but you can look at a few of my crappy videos being my first year this was 16ch and then i added another controller for the candy cane spinners and now have plans of over 100 channels for next year.... theres other videos on my channel
  19. hey guys i know its early and i know everyone is busy but im trying to configure next years setup, this year was my first year and 32ch next year i know will be 112+ channels Roof gutter and outlining roof ridge in red/green/blue retro fit led C9's 4 - Windows and front door outlined in red/green/blue led C6's 4 - 7ch fire sticks in cool white led m5's (possibly running 2 sticks together to save on channels?) 4 - 7ch leaping arches in purple led C6's (wife wanted something purple in the display) 7 - 24" mini trees in cool white led m5's 100+ strobes on 1ch 7 - snowflakes for the roof led (if i can find a decent deal after Christmas or make some) 2 - 8' tall 12ch candy cane spinners (wired together but reversed to spin in opposite directions) any other ideas?? i have been tossing around the idea of doing a 25'+ mega tree on the far left of my front yard but it may be too much for this small of a yard... ill attach some pictures also keep in mind we have no landscaping or bushes this year and will next year across the front thanks for any and all help just trying to think of some cool new ideas
