  1. What ever you do, do NOT use The UPS Store. They are a rip off! If you use UPS go to them direct.
  2. The ribbon is that plasticish ribbon (water proof) and a bit stiffer than regular ribbon. Holds up file to UV but needs to be replaced every couple of years. One of the ribbons actually has a wire running down the length (encased in the ribbon). Get at Michaels or floral supplier.
  3. Build your own quick and cheap. Cut two pieces of coro plast (get it from the local sigh company) For instance if you want a present that will be 24" X 18 "X18", cut two pieces 18 X 24 X 18. score the coro at 18".24" and 18" (this will be the outside bend). Bend the pieces into 2 "U" shapes. Fit together and hot glue. Leave on of the ends unglued (this will be the bottom and how you open the present for lights). affix the lights (led or RGB to the bottom (the flap not glued). decorate with fancy ribbon. Wala you have a great present. You will need to pin it down as it w
  4. Be careful of speaker wire outside in sunlight. Wire is NOT UV protected, continues exposure will cause the wire to degrade and fail. Tried this wire (same manufacture) in Florida and it failed the second year (twice) didn't realize what happened the first time. May not be a problem for those where the wire is not exposed to direct sunlight.
  5. look into 3/8 rope lights rather than strips (strips are to delicate and very directional).
  6. A matter of what you want it to appear as. Ribbons look more link a solid line of color. Pixels more like Christmas lights depending on the distance between the pixels. Ribbons are VERY delicate and difficult to repair as well as not really that weatherproof. Pixels are very sturdy. If you want the look of ribbons with the weatherproof of and strength of pixels look into rectangular modules. If you zip tie them to Boscoyo strips end to end you will get the same look as ribbons and the easy of repair as well as the weatherproof of pixels (each module has 3 5050 pixels addressable as
  7. The 4 wire are the original CCB's and use the LOR CCB controller. The 3 wire are the new CCB and are WS2811 chip that use different controllers than the older type and will NOT work with the older style CCB controller. You can use the new RGB controllers.
  8. Disparky: are you planning on being at the Florida mini later in Feb ?
  9. the sequence is available from holidaysequences.com it is available in both horizontal and vertical format. Of course due to the lack of camera quality it is hard to see just how good this sequence is in person. (does not include the flag stuff on the you tube link). Dual duty using the 180 tree strips for july 4th (by adding a 13th strip) makes a GREAT flag for sequencing. This is 1 meter wide by appox 3 feet high. zip tied to 3/4 PVC pipe.
  10. I used the strips from my 2 meter 12 ribbon tree and added a 13 ribbon and mounted them sideways. (multi use for July 4th) I took angels horizontal version and converted it from 50 pixels per strip to 100 pixels per strip (my strips are 60 pixels per meter) worked out great, positioned the sequence with a short gap on the left and right to accommodate the 120 pixels. each of the 13 stripes is a ribbon and the field and stars occupy a portion of the first 7 strips with the remaining space for the stripe. did not end up is exactly 50 stars but it is not really noticeable.
  11. You can control the dmx device from LOR. Not sure what moving light projectors are?
  12. James: You need to decide how you are going to set the 16 strings up. i.e. one universe for each of the 16 strings or are you going to zig zag them with 150 pixels (3 strings) to a single universe. The 16 universe option will use the entire controller for the tree while the latter version will leave some outputs for other uses (if you need). The 16 universe option would be the easiest for you. If you want some specific help send me a private message (just don't like posting my email due to junk mail). Would be happy to assist if needed. JerryMac.
  13. James: what 16 channel pixel CORO setup are you referring to?
  14. Try the Assie Board (here is a link to the AusChristmasLighting Manual 101. TOP SHELF INFO. http://auschristmaslighting.com/forums/index.php/topic,1889.0.html
  15. For anyone interested there is a fairly easy way to convert 25 length to 50 length (or double or triple any number). This process will double the number of pixels addressed like setting your ribbon/strings to grouping without having to be locked to that case (only for a portion of a song or only for one song). First create a sequence with ONLY the new 24 X 50, 12 X 100 etc setup (no need to worry about the actual addressing of the strings only the order. copy all the odd numbered pixels to a single track "Odd Pixels) copy all of the even numbered pixels to a single track "Even Pixels" Save th
