  1. Can anyone tell me how to get sub sequence to run in S5, it loads but will not turn on. Sequence runs great alone. I have emailed LOR but have not gotten an answer on how to make it work. Or will I have to run old program in S4 and forget my S5 work this year.
  2. Hello and Merry Christmas to all, it has been a while since I have been on site. Several years ago I sort of retired from doing a display due to age and other things. The last display I did at home we where up to over 600 channels and 425,000 lights along with video and of course sound support. Two years ago I donated my entire display to the Masonic Youth RV Park and Campground near Tampa, FL. It is a charitable youth campground that supports youth and other organization. Last year was a great year and the word has gotten out and we have now had several other donations of display items a
  3. Hello All, Been a long time since I posted or even on but due to age and other facts of life I have not done my display for several years. This past year I donated my display to a charity and they are setting it up now. I have over 60 LOR units and several Color Ribbons and a untold number of lights and toys that I had gathered up over the years. My problem is I have two (2) EDM Transmitters that are in need of some repair work but unable to find a working email address or contact for them. Does anyone have a working email or contact for EDM Design, I went to their web site but the a
  4. Also there are over 1500 - 6/8/12 foot cords, 5000 foot of zip, plugs, two 30 / 15 amp circuit breaker boxes, power cables, data cables, FM transmitters.
  5. Hello everyone, been some time seance last log in and active. I have been a long time member here and even longer Christmas Nut but have reached the point where age and health will not allow me to do it anymore. I have a very large display covering up to 5 houses. Untold number of lights and effects ranging from 24 leaping arches to mega trees, 40 2 foot, 25 to 30 6 foot, blow molds untold, 24 poll light wall, most are incandescent but have lots of LED both full and half wave, wire frames both small and extra large. Way to much to list or even try and list so here is the offer, I will not
  6. you can make the calble any length you want just make sure you follow the right color code to pins for data cables, can find it with google and most time listed with crimper tool set. You can also buy of the testers for cat-5 data at Lowes or HomeDepot. Know that Habor Fright has them for around $20.00 and they will sure save you a lot of trouble. Most of the time when controllers act up of lights not coming on and off as plained its data cable problems. Take the time to learn how to wire and test them and you will be a lot happier.
  7. Thanks all for all the notes, I have gotten several emails about wanting some controllers and other things. If I decide to break things up and sale off I will post and answer all emails. I did spend a couple of hours looking thru some of the things and will add a better list in a few days but found 16 12 foot arches, 8 10 foot arches, 10 8 foot arches, 25 shooting stars on 3/16 steal cable, 1000 foot of rope lights (LED), 24 6 foot candy canes, 12 6 foot Santa's frames, 12 6 foot candle frames, one set of Santa and Deer wire frame that is 16 foot high and 12 foot wide, several thousand spare
  8. Mr. P., May part out later but would really like to clear up my 4 buildings of things, looked last night and there are 20 plus arches ranging from 8 to 12 foot, over metal stars from 24 inchs up to 6 feet each. Like I said it will take a big truck to haul it all. Have one 16 x 24 foot building with nothing except lights and wire.
  9. Never really posted a lot of videos but if you go to WJHL TV or WCYB TV you can see some there. I do have some I can forward alone with pictures.
  10. After 20 plus years of doing displays its time to retire and sale, not having someone in the family interested in taking it over and unable to find anyone really interested in doing it, tried to give it away to a couple of churches and other groups for tax write off but again no one wanted to do the work it takes. I am NOT interested in parting it out a little at a time or sealing just parts, it all goes at one time. There are over forty (40) LOR units with lots of spare parts, I know there are 7 or 8 of the 1602 in metal boxes and 10 or 15 of the high amperage units rest are the CTB 16 PC.
  11. Shut down at 11:00 pm on Dec. 25, had 4 people volunteer to help me take down and roll cords, started on Dec. 26 around 10:00am. Everything down and stored except some lights still in shop area and of course still have a few boxes here and there. Was great to have the help had it down and away in two days.
  12. I will attempt to pass what little bit information I think I know, first a triac is a transistor that is made up of two diodes either pnp or npn depending on how they are to be used for. voltage or no voltage applied to the base of the transistor opens of closes the gate between the emitter and cathode allowing voltage to flow. Most transistors short out between the emitter and cathode but do sometimes short to base, sort of like a capacitor goes shorted resisters go open. The biggest fail rate is due to overload not to say shorting them does not damage them it will. Over the past 7 or 8 years
  13. Anyone using VPT-7 video mapping software that can give me some input. Having trouble downloading and setup.
