  1. April? Use to be in February or early March.
  2. I was going through reading and just going to say what you said..when I saw you beat me too it. So I'll add a photo to add a visual, lol. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07S2QZZZF/ref=cm_sw_r_u_apa_fabt1_JHPTFbXMWKJDW?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
  3. You use premade cat5 cables? Why? You can buy a roll of say 500' and make your own to the actual length you need for much cheaper. Plus they wouldnt have boots. OR even cut the boot ends off and put new ends on without boots. Both very easy things to do. If you do the math...I'd bet your paying almost double for your premade ones...compared to ones you make on your own. You should look into it...
  4. If you're talking about these things, then you are so right! All of my controllers have two of these on the bottoms this way I never have to open them. I've been using these before LOR started selling them...I like to think I'm one of the one's that started that movement to use them back 10 years ago when I started this hobby. Either way...it's definitely helped save the cat5 ports on several occasions.
  5. Interesting...I wonder why the lock upgrade (change)
  6. Someone told me the LOR controllers come with actual locks on them with keys to prevent entry. Is this true? And if so..how you you get them rekeyed or replaced if you lose a key.
  7. So I want to do something like this, But I want to use this, http://store.lightorama.com/10wrgbflplpa.html If I understand this right, its a plug and play and I can set up up to be on say dusk to dawn with whatever colors I want, but then can I plug it into my main show at Christmas time and use it within a sequence controlled by my computer? I dont want to have to use the computer to run it 365 days a year. I was thinking of having white most of the year, maybe red for Valentines day, red, white and blue for Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day, and orange for Halloween (I dont do Halloween shows). Would them being on 365 days a year be too much for them? Should I just get standard accent lights for the time Im not running a show?
  8. Thanks...I just joined it. Ive been trying to join the LOR Facebook gr for months. And its still pending. Anyone know John Wiechmann?
  9. Do you have a picture or link the the Aluminum you used to make the frame?
  10. With all your help I think I have decided to go with P5 if I do a matrix board. I'm thinking lexan comes in the biggest 48"x96". So I think I can do 7x7 and still have play for frame around it. But I think that number will not work out. So I may have to do 6x7...I fear I maybe stuck do 6x6. I want to go a big as possible. But it seams where I'm having issues is finding a clear piece of plexiglass product to cover the front to waterproof. Unless I do a seam down the middle, and that would look like [Foul Language Used]! Now...how do I control it? What Im seeing on YouTube is something about raspberry controller software that's NOT lor. Im sorry but I want to stay with lor! So i dont know what do do. Any opinions?
  11. Your p10 matrix looks amazing...yet this guy makes p10...look bad, lol
  12. I see some say indoor rated and some say outdoor rated. Does it "really" have to be outdoor rated? I say this because we all know not everything we use in our displays are outdoor rated...vampire plugs is just an example of something not outdoor rated and we ALL use them on our displays for years, lol. Saw this video that if I build something like that allows me to get indoor P10's. So now to find a P10 chat about how boards are made. Any advice?
  13. Any ideas on the best place to start...to find P10?
  14. Did you see my youtube video I posted from the movie "Deck the Halls". I actually like the video quality on the roof. It looks like a large matrix covering the roof. Could be P10, and could be CGI. That's why I'd love to see a pixel matrix showing video. That's cool yours is put away. There tons of others on here that will hopefully chime in with maybe a video that made from some point. Thanks for your help!
