  1. Oops - my mistake - it's Saturday the 17th. Hope to see you there.
  2. Yes, there IS a LOR meeting in Sacramento this month. It's Saturday the 17th. Sorry for the late notice (busy with lighting). At the usual Round Table Pizza in Old Sacramento. PS: Some people were asking about programming moving lights in LOR:
  3. Yes, Ken is normally here, but been busy installing a lot or LED lights for the displays at the state fairs (California and Washington). Getting a little break, so the 22nd would work just find for me. WHat's a good time? 6:00?
  4. It's a bit more technical than that, but try adding a simple C9 incandescent light to your string(s) and see if there's a difference. If it looks better, then think about adding a snubber or Glade or other artificial (ghost) load to smooth things out.
  5. Try it yourself; get a video and program some random lights and point it at your house.
  6. There used to be a DMX to GECE device, but may not be available anymore.
  7. The commercial LOR controllers also have this option (internal memory), but the ..PC versions do not. Also, the CCRs have it too.
  8. Don't splice it in that way, you could damage things. Use a DMX merger and either set it for LTP (last dmx signal takes priority) or HTP (highest dmx value takes priority). You may have to get adapters for the DMX signal, but that's the easy stuff. I've done this before, but used an outboard DMX dongle that can deliver a clean signal, no matter what the computer is doing.
  9. Some people wire a resistor into this plug and use it to help control the LED dimming. Technically, it's a "dummy load" or "ghost load", but over the years LOR folks call them Snubbers. It's also available commercially: http://www.ebay.com/itm/American-DJ-LED-Dummy-/291477761579?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item43dd6dae2b
  10. I snuck (sneaked) a preview and it looks great; nothing like it out there. It might even better than my RGB snowflakes. Maybe.
