  1. Not exactly prelit...but we bought this nativity set off of Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00496GZ4G/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I have a spotlight on it that I have connected to an AC controller. Coincidentally enough...we had ordered a lighted Nativity from Home Depot...it just somehow never made it to my house with FedEx.
  2. I bought some quality LEDS from Creative Displays. They're heavier duty than the big box stores, which I've also bought to fill in the gaps here and there. I also have experienced the same issues with squirrels. Coincidentally enough, my local tree rodents seem to prefer the cheaper big box store lights. Who knew?
  3. Thanks for the helpful info yet again! I'm trying to set up new equipment that I bought in the summer sale. It's amazing what I can forget in one year's time! 😂
  4. I'm not sure if it varies for different type of equipment, but for my CCR II with bullet pixels, I've found that Red at 55 and Green at 16/17 matches my warm white LEDs.
  5. Thanks for the info. I'll definitely check out the sealed type. I definitely get buying the cheap ones on sale but I'm planning on using these on mini trees. That's a lot of wrapping and tie strapping to only last one year. Lol
  6. I have purchased quite a few of the mini 5mm LEDs from Creative Displays over the past few years. The plug says "Ting Shen TS 22" and they are supposed to be a better quality light. I certainly see a difference between Walmart brand lights. So far, so good. No real complaints. I was just wondering if there were more reasonably priced options out there.
  7. I was looking at the C9 strobe sets that wowlights has. Always open for recommendations though. https://wowlights.com/ProductList.asp?Category=14
  8. I've been considering adding strobes to the mix for some time now. As in most cases, I tend to research things to death. I came across a warning on one site that said : "When using strobes with light controllers, turning them on and off rapidly or using them with fading or lower intensities can damage them." Has anyone had any experience with this?
  9. Haha! The first thing is forget that part about not spending your retirement savings lol. Just remember that at one point we were all where you are now. I started several years ago myself. I actually bought my starter package during the summer sale (which is going on now!) and had time to sequence a few songs for my show. Pick a few "must have" songs for your show to sequence this year and purchase or get free sequences here to fill in the gaps. A good rule of thumb is whatever time frame you think you can get it done in, forget it. You can't. lol It will pretty much consume every available
  10. Haha. My "white whale" has always been "Take a Break Guys" by Brian Setzer. For several years I've wanted to try it and now that I finally have, I'm not even sure I like it anymore. 😂 My luck.!
  11. How do you like those lights Mr P? I've had my eye on them for a couple of years now.
  12. I'm sharing the song "How many Kings by Downhere." This is my first time sharing as a way to sort of give back to the community that has given me so much. Just know that it is a simplistic type sequence (i.e. Mostly chases) compared to other ones that I usually do. Surprisingly enough, it has gotten a lot of compliments. That either speaks to the pleasures of a simple sequence or either reflects on my poor sequencing ability in other songs! Haha. I chose to only use white lights during this song so there is only 16 channels, with one being a spotlight on the manger scene and 4 RGB chann
  13. Update. It was honestly like spinning a roulette wheel when I would refresh the network. Luckily I happen to love roulette. Sometimes finding 3 units, sometimes 4, and even once 5. Still scratching my head on the 5 units. Apparently it even detected my new LOR1600 still in the box that I never got around to incorporating lol. Long story short..whenever I had 4 units showing, even though one was unknown, I set the appropriate unit IDs and started my MIIP show. All worked well. At this point, as long as it's working, I'm OK with not understanding it. Thanks for the help guys!
  14. Ok, I'm posting this here because with this issue, I do feel like a newbie. I've added two Cosmic Color Pixel controllers this year to go along with my 2 LOR1600Ws. When plugged up beside the computer, the network found both CCPs just fine. I was able to see what the sequencing looked like. Fast forward to installation. I daisy chained each unit with the Cat 5 cables and when I scanned the network, it only shows 3 units. My 2 AC units and it varies from finding one Pixie unit to finding an unknown device with 32 outputs. Once when I rescanned, it found all 4. When it showed all 4 (only
  15. I was updating one of my old sequences to include the new pixels. Everything has been going fine until this point. I was reaching the end of one particular sequence and for the big finale I copied/pasted a particular color that I wanted to use with a definitive start and stop. When the sequence played back, the pixels continued to flash even when the channel isn't showing anything in the grid. When I tried to expand the channels out, I get a pop up that says "Channel group expander error" with the text "unknown expander node map key". Any thoughts? Just when I thought I was getting it! lo
