  1. I had to install LOR S3 on a system that does not have a working network connection and I need to get it operational ASAP. Problem is the only other system I can connect to the Internet with is my Mac and no one is home at LOR to give me the off-line license key until Monday. I really cannot loose almost 4 days to get this online. I don't understand why this cannot be done using the WEB instead of having to talk to a warm body. HELP!
  2. I did a quick test using strip inside of 3/4 shark bite tubing and I really like the look. This was done in the bright Home Depot lights and it's still bright so it should look very good at night. The strip I used for the test is Ray's WS2811 imbedded 5050 60/meter. The 30/meter should look almost as good but I like the brighter 60/meter. The controller can reduce the channel count to a manageable level.
  3. I noticed that the URL were not complete so I fixed them and posted the pictures below. I see that Rudolf is not the same as the others, who made him. I know how to get the set from the new manufacture but I like him being different so where did he originate from?
  4. I still wish the diming curves could be changed so the LEDs could dim down to zero.
  5. I've been trying to figure out how to do a twinkle or shimmer that goes from say 50% to 100% rather then 0% to 100%. I just want the lights to lightly shimmer. Is there any way to do this? So far I've had no joy. Thanks
  6. No need to send it back, just call Dell and tell them you want Windows 7 or you sending it back. They will ship it to you and you can wipe out Windows 8. BTW, Windows 7 is a build option and will be for many years. Business IT departments hate it and are telling MS so.
  7. It would be great if LOR would build recoding directly into the Viz. The advantage is speed since you don't have to display it on the screen while recording which removed that extra process.
  8. I think they are getting ready to change the mounting bosses on the CG-1000 to the new spacing pattern of 1" like the new CG-1500 and the CG-500. That said I like the deeper case.
  9. Like what you did with sequencing the song. I have to admit I was almost expecting you got someone to re-record a few words of the song in protest. Make that last "Stick it to em" and gracefully make an exit. Love it. I still think that your neighbors that want the show back should pack the HOA meeting.
  10. They are half wave but you could make a full wave birder to front end them. I convert them to DC and run them from 48VDC controllers.
  11. You might think about using a 5ghz channel instead of 2.4 as is a much less used frequency.
  12. Why am I thinking this has more to do with the Valley Fair Mall Exibit and video than his home show and video. We know that home displays are totally protected and if a label sues your going to win and they'll end up paying you. If they sue based on the YouTube video without following the DMCA take down notice they'll have problems as well based on fair use. Based on that I don't him being sued for his home display especially this long after posting. Now the Valley Fair Mall display I think is a totally different issue. The mall would have to pay a performance fee and I'm betting they didn't. Richard should not be involved in that issue if his contract specified the mall had to pay those fees not him. If he didn't include that clause then both of them may be on the hook unless the mall is claiming they didn't know fees needed to be paid, not likely since the pay fees on the mall background music, or they thought the fees were included in Richards fee. I would expect that the label would go after the deep pockets which would be the mall. If this is the issue then it doesn't effect us so other than feeling sorry for Richard why should we care. Now the Valley Fair Maul video is also a totally different issue. If you or I took the video and posted it that would be no different than any one posting a video of any out in the open public performance. The worst they could do to us is a takedown notice. Richards posting might be different because he developed the show so he may not have the fair use exception. Still I would expect a DMCA takedown notice would have to be filled before any legal action could be taken. All that said, I may use the song just for spite.
  13. Make sure you put a 1N4004 diode accross each valve to counteract the back EMF so you don't blow out the MOSFETS. Make sure the cathode is connected to the common +V and that the diode is at the coil.
  14. That's what Kevin did plus he used a clip mounted on the house and snapped the pipe into it. Nice setup.
  15. Please go to your video manager and turn off blocking for mobile devices. I'd like to have played this on my iPad.
