  1. So, reading this... if in dmx wiring whiteorange is data +, orange is data - and whitebrown/brown is ground Does that translate to how my CTB16PC accepts the input to blue is data +, whiteblue is data - and green is common? If I put my CTB16PC's into DMX mode using the software setup does this change the pins to use whiteorange, orange and whitebrown/brown like native dmx devices?
  2. Many thanks to @debtoews as I received my 4 controllers I purchased. All were in great shape and I have already been able to switch the ID's on all of them to match mine and tested each port and all worked fantastic. I only have one complaint. I should have ordered more!
  3. Yeah, but I crossed my fingers every time my wife put something in the microwave during show hours, lol...
  4. I ran all 7 of my ac controllers and two 27 channel dumb rgb boxes off two circuits last year, and one was on my kitchen circuit, lol... But like Mr. P all are led lights, no incan. Unlike Mr. P I didn't test them, but no issues for the entire show. With jumping into smart rgb this year I am looking at running a couple outdoor outlets on their own circuits.
  5. Hello @debtoews, I sent you a PM!
  6. Damn, how did I miss this... Mental note, check forums daily in off-season.
  7. I did my first dumb rgb lights this past Christmas, so I'll try and share what I learned to your questions. 1. I added a second USB485. So my LOR AC boxes where on one USB485 and the dumb RGB on another. 2. I live in Michigan and it got pretty cold this year and I had no issues with my strips. I even did tight bends as I was spelling out Merry Christmas in cursive. Maybe I got lucky, who knows, but what I did was put the strips through clear plastic tubing I ordered from Home Depot so that they wouldn't "kink" when I created the signs. 3. I did not mount them around any w
  8. Well, I got the Pergola (almost) done for my wife so anyone that can see my backyard can enjoy the lights I guess. https://onedrive.live.com/embed?cid=BDE8477EA0CFF27B&resid=BDE8477EA0CFF27B!43494&authkey=ABtRcA2kdEAUvqI https://onedrive.live.com/embed?cid=BDE8477EA0CFF27B&resid=BDE8477EA0CFF27B!43495&authkey=ALb-Mbzk-TqZa9k
  9. Hahaha, but at least I finally found the closest person to me so far. 40 miles to Laingsburg, I'll have to come see your lights this holiday season.
  10. Luckily (or not so much) I gave the mouse all my money the last full week of February so we are good for a bit. I see you are in Bradenton. I lived half my life there as my grandparents moved there when I was 7 and my parents were school teachers so we were in Bradenton for Christmas break, spring break and all of summer. After college I lived in Sarasota for a few years before getting pulled back into the black hole that is Michigan. My grandparents lived just blocks from the high school.
  11. People Are Putting Their Christmas Lights Back Up as a Sign of Hope Amid Coronavirus Fears
  12. Why do I suddenly see everyone in Caniac's front yard wearing 3d glasses while watching the light show.
  13. They seem to take all the videos and put their opening/closing on them prior to putting them up. When you think about the thousands of videos they receive it takes quite awhile. I found it annoying that they did that as it took away my opening/closing sequencing, but c'est la vie, I did sign away my rights to it when I joined the contest. 🤣
  14. I just wanted to know if it was possible because I don't see it happening.
  15. Wow, thanks for finding that. I swear I watched a video from them, but didn't see the star. Old eyes I guess. Though not sure I'm impressed that much with it. I think I like the "spinning" stars that are wireframe with 3/4 stars grouped together. I knew I should have bookmarked that site, lol...
