  1. Idahocamper I will just say good luck with this, I asked the same question or participated in the subject a long while ago don't really remember it all, but the lawyers will tell you to leave it be because if you disable it and an accident occurs you open yourself up for all sorts of stuff. My buddy across the street and I started with LOR in 2015 I think it was and we disabled our bright street light in front of my house. We used a LED type spot light placed on top of the pole with a rope and pvc rig. Then I powered it through a channel from one of my controllers so wh
  2. JR is just amazing, I have been trying to sequence this longer than I want to admit, and he "busted it out" in less than 2 days, and I believe one of those days he was in the snow with his kids. Thank You JR, truly amazing, you are the best. The forum members here appreciate your effort, I know I sure do. Thanks, Keith
  3. JR Thanks for the info, I looked at his site but didn't take any time to view his songs, I wlll do that this week and see if he has any I am interested in, its good to know he use's the HC setup which I use also. I appreciate the sequences you gave me too, changing over your channel setup was easy and I like your work. I am making a large change (for me anyway) to my Mega Tree, I am adding 32 channels to the 46 it already has to control every string of lights on one color to see if it makes a big viewing change and if it does look better then I plan to add 64 more channels to contr
  4. Jim Thanks, I use them for the singing tree parts of my show and do the rest myself, I will give them a holler, might be another source for my singing tree's. I have been working off and on on one song for near a year to try and learn it but I just don't have the talent to put those mouth movements into a sequence . I did a little study under JR in his covid class for a few weeks and just couldn't grasp it, he has it down to a science and is good at it but I couldn't get it even with his help. Keith
  5. Jim Thanks for the links, I use a lot of holiday sequences.com but I have never heard of seasonal sequences.com, do you know what kind of channel assignment they use for their singing tree's? I am all LED and have no plans of going RGB so another source for the singing tree's is great. If you don't know I will email and ask them. Keith
  6. 1/2 inch I think would be too much, Doug at wireframedelights makes his out of 1/4 inch steel, The 20 feet of "Merry Christmas" sign he made me is very rigid and plenty strong. I believe you could use the HF welder mentioned to weld up 1/4 inch steel rod and the clips for attaching lights are readily available. Keith
  7. I have no RGB experience but have you tried rebooting the computer, My show all AC controllers behaved weird and the reboot fixed my show. And it is a very quick fix if it works. And if it doesn't some experts will be along shortly. Keith
  8. Changes for 2021 I am taking the 5 shooting stars off my roof to go from my front yard to the neighbors tall pine tree, and will try to install some form of lights near the top to light after the shooting stars go off in order, not to be very easy because the tree is a good 80-90 feet high. But that is the first half of my change. The other half is I am going to construct a 4' x 8' American Flag out of aluminum and stainless steel cable, with the lights tied to the cable to form the flag and then place it on the roof where the stars are. I am using the cable because I b
  9. If he doesn't he will make you exactly what you want, click on his www address in above post and it takes you to his web site. Give him a email and he will make it happen, I was very happy with my "Merry Christmas" sign that he made for me this year. We hung it over the road and it was a big hit with our guests, it really made our street. Keith
  10. New years day is our earliest, if it stays dry the 1st will again be our takedown day.

    Your very welcome, North Florida is just now starting to dry out and your welcome for the GFCI trip, they come with rain i'm afraid LOL. Keith
  12. Sorry to hear that, no damage here, more worries than anything else, I'll holler at ya, let us know if you need any help. Merry Christmas from cold Orange Park Keith

    That is truly awful, I had problems with rain a couple years ago on my Mega Tree, the GFI's would trip with any significant rain, I solved my problem by elevating the 48 electrical connections off the ground. Tonight we haven't had much rain, maybe 1/2 to 1 inch, more wind than anything else, Nas Jacksonville 3 miles away reported 55 mph wind and that is what really worried us. I hope you can solve your problem and get the show running. You are very right, this has been a lousy year but it is going to get better now, and Thanks for your Spirit, Merry Christmas Keith

    Sorry to hear this, we also got this storm on the absolute worst night possible, I walked out after all our phones got the severe storm warning's, when I got out there you could see trouble coming but there were a lot of cars and walkers still out, I spoke with the walkers and warned them it was almost upon us, and lucky for all they quickly left. I shut my show down right after and it was dark except for the lightning for about 15 minutes, I brought it back up and was very surprised everything came back up without fail, and now at 2100 it is again a very busy street. Hope it is pa
