  1. If I understand correctly, there are actually not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, but five (5) types of networks!?? Correct ??? See the large picture on this page: http://www1.lightorama.com/big-picture/ They are: 1. LOR 2. DMX 3. LOR High Speed 4. LOR High-Speed Enhanced 5.LAN (Local Area Network) i.e. standard computer networking Is there a chart that tells you how far you can run either of these networks before you start to lose signal? And if you do lose signal, what if any boosters are available to extend the network length? Thanks, Ken
  2. Say, On the opening page of the LOR web site, one of the videos says something about large neighborhood systems. The very first neighborhood shown looks like maybe it spans at least 3 or 4 blocks looking at the aerial view which I feel certain was taken with a drone. Does anyone know how they are doing this? Is it wired or wireless or both? Is anyone familiar with that particular system and neighborhood? Many thanks, Ken Birmingham, AL.
  3. Yes, that's what I was looking for. Apparently, there's nothing in the software as this point. Perhaps in a future version? But several have offered various "work-arounds" Thanks very much! 8Track Birmingham, AL.
  4. I'm wondering if LOR software can possibly allow you you to set up a sign that says something like: "IT'S ONLY XX DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS! Where the XX is made up of any kind of "dumb" pixels maybe, laid-out in seven segments that can indicate any range of numbers (from 99 to 00 in the above) See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven-segment_display The software would need to check the computer's clock, due the calculation, and turn on the appropriate seven segments. If LOR software can't do it, wonder if any others can??? Many thanks, Ken - Birmin
  5. This absolutely blows my mind !!! I hope to achieve something this good somewhere down the line! Wonderful World of Color Trees 2014 AVCHD

    For those who are into this "hobby" on a serious basis and plan on doing this year after year, I think this should probably be one you should consider: https://www.amazon.com/TIC-GS-3-Outdoor-Ground-Omnidirectional/dp/B0007RSZX0/ref=sr_1_31?ie=UTF8&qid=1507749639&sr=8-31&keywords=Outdoor+speakers TIC GS-3 8" Outdoor In-Ground Omnidirectional Speaker Regards
  7. Amen to the "peer pressure"! Yes, I know for some people, cost is an issue & I certainly understand. Maybe LOR can make some inexpensive 2 or 3 channel controllers. Plus, I want to learn more about solid state electronics. Maybe some enterprising people can develop some easy to assemble simple controllers from parts we can mail order from the big electronics houses (now that Radio Shack is unfortunately all but gone I think!) A few names come to mind; Amazon has some stuff, but mainly, Mouser Electronics, Newark Electronics, and Digi-Key Electronics come to mind. any Thanks!
  8. I'm brand new here, but I like to think big! If I start out really small, I want to make sure I get the right software, controllers & cabling, etc. I'm modestly computer & software literate, but I'm confused by some of the network speeds & protocols. I don't want to make the wrong step and then have to change everything further down the road. I think it was Dr. Martin Luther King who said, "I have a Dream!" I have this wild crazy dream that one day most everyone on our street was hooked into the Christmas lighting automation system. i live on a nice dead end street with a circle a
