  1. Thanks. I did end up having to splice in a bulb. Its not pretty but it should get me through the season. Now I have another problem though. I have one light on my upper gutter, that is really hard to get to. It is acting funny but not all the time. every now and then, its shows full white and then as the sequence changes it comes and goes. I guess the good thing is the rest of the lights downstream are still working. I just hope the signal gets populated....
  2. Hey Doug, I wouldn't mind going to something like this. Feb 7th might be a little tough for me though. My wife's Bday is that weekend, and I might have some trouble if I don't devote every ounce of attention toward her that weekend.... LOL
  3. Hey guys, I have an emergency here. Tonight I got home and noticed a large section of my c9 seasonal ent. Pixels were not working. About 5 bulbs in from the beginning, the 5th bulb doesn't act properly, from there all the way to the end, they are out completely. They were not wet. And are individually attached to the gutter, so they haven't been moving. No cut wires or anything. They have been working without fail since thanksgiving until now. Any suggestions? Please help, tomorrow starts my busiest days!!!!!
  4. I had a transformer go out on me the night of Halloween.( other brand) I ordered a new one from LOR. The 200 watt led 12v transformer. It has two 12 v output wires. My question is, if I am hooking it up to a controller that only has one connector, do I just use one cable, or can I parallel the cables together to combine the outputs. I guess the real question is, is the 200 watts divided between the two outputs, and if so, can the be combined into a single output?
  5. I doubt I'm the only person who has started putting up lights. I figured I would post a few picks of some of my lights. This is all I have up so far.
  6. Found this at the store yesterday. Anybody tried them yet? They are pretty good.
  7. While you are at it, I would love a copy too please. And thank you Rendermandan@yahoo.com
  8. Great write up Doug! I personally don't use a lot of wire frames in my display. But from what I've seen, you do good work! I might have to consider coming up with something for you to make...
  9. Man, they have some fast service. I got most of my preorder on Tuesday. It was missing some strobes though. One quick call to Paul, yesterday, and the rest of the strobes arrived today!!!! I guess it helps that I'm only a few hours from them... Thanks Paul!
  10. In a typical high speed internet in your house, you will have a cable modem, that is connected to a router. Most home use routers have a 4 port switch built into them. The router is what all your computers are connected to. either via wifi, or hard wired connection. You can use the built in switch in your router to plug your E682 into. If you don't' have a router, you can buy a stand alone unmanaged switch, Such as this one. http://www.amazon.com/TP-LINK-TL-SF1005D-5-port-100Mbps-Desktop/dp/B000FNFSPY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1397496709&sr=8-2&keywords=5+port+switch This w
  11. If I may interject here. This is the first year I'm doing smart pixels. I also bought from seasonal ent. They have been a pleasure to work with! I had one set that was missing a c7 cap, I jumped on their chat system, and they shipped out a new cap right away. So far, so good. To answer your question, yes, the lor software (advance license) will control the e682. You don't hook it into the lor network though, unless you use an elor... Instead you hook it up to your network switch. Then it's all in the configuration....
  12. Laser scanning and 3D modeling is what I do for a living. I borrowed the scanner one weekend, did the registration, and modeling in my downtime. I realize it's not something everyone can do, but thought it would be cool to show. Unfortunately I'm not able to divulge a lot of our projects, due to security reasons, but we have done some work for Disney. And we are currently working on some more.... Let me just say, I wanted to do a projection light system like the magic kingdom castle has, but I can't afford the projectors. I was serious about exact science. I have a model that I can p
  13. Or you could do what I did. I laser scanned my house, and modeled it in 3D! makes measuring for light placement and extension cords an exact science!
  14. Khawes, thanks for the input. I'm pretty new to the rgb, Dmx world here and am having trouble grasping what you are trying to do. Sometimes things makes sense to you, but are incomprehensible to others. In your case, I'm lost. Is there any way you can elaborate on what you are doing? Perhaps making a video like Ron has done, would help me and others to understand. Thanks!
  15. Ron, how did you bend that pex and get it to stay in that shape?
  16. We'll, I've decided go the route and just print my own clips. I only have about 210 or so with a few extras in case of breakage to do, so I better start printing! I'll let you know how it goes. Here is the first batch.
  17. That's ok, I talk to myself all the time... I was able to figure out what you were doing without the audio but that doesn't mean everyone will understand. So if you feel inclined, knock yourself out! Thanks again!
  18. Ron, thanks for that video. That is very helpful! I never thought of grouping the fixtures into a prop. I will have to play around with this tonight. For some reason, I didn't have any audio, but maybe there wasn't any? To be honest, we need more videos like these. Sometimes it's really hard to understand what someone is trying to say in text form. The videos are clear and to the point, thanks again!
  19. I've been rooting around the forum trying to find the best way to add smart pixels to the visualizer. I'm not adding thousands, just a little over 200 for now... So I'm not worried about the fixture limitation I keep hearing so much about. I am only adding the pixels to the gutter/eve line this year. Here is what I did. I first added a CCR ribbon to follow my gutter lines. I set up the exact number of pixels I needed on each section. Then I changed the color to show slight grey color and then set it to a level that I have disabled so I cant accidentally select it. Then i placed a singl
  20. Thanks for the images Ron, Those help out a lot. It looks like the issue with the bulb hitting the clip in the down position will be exaggerated with a C9 bulb since you only used a C7.
  21. That's an excellent point about the infill. Last night I printed the first prototype. The turned out pretty good. And they clipped on the gutters. Not sure how well they will hold their strength over a few months. I was able to print the flexible parts thin enough to make them bend enough to get them on. Here they are.Edit: forgot to mention, I printed these in PLA.
