  1. Hello Dale, Sorry I didn't read this earlier. I am a lor user since 2009, joined the lor forums just a few years ago, and have been in most of the facebook groups for over a year. You have correct information, but your reasoning is off. To begin, I feel like light-o-rama did what they had to do for their buisness forums. I love reading through the forums but almost never post, it is a great source of information still. I can't speak for every one of the 1,000+ people in the facebook groups, but I feel that drama is only created when a new user is arrogant or rude, which is exactly what the

  3. Hey! Welcome to the hobby! I think that almost everything has been said. I'll just give you a few links that might help. Controllers: Many of us use the CTB16PC controller because (for a residential display) it is cheaper, lighter, and accomplishes almost the same thing as the UL listed controllers also sold by Lightorama. The ctb16 can come with power cables plugged in to the board and ready to go, not plugged in but in the box, or without power cables at all. -Fully assembled controller: http://store.lightorama.com/ctretogonoas.html -Mostly assembled controller: http://store.lightorama.com/c
  4. www.lor2012.com no longer exists. Odd.. It now redirects to www.lightorama.com
  5. NOTE: As I say this, I am no expert and am only speaking from what I have learned. By definition, the rope is either rated for 24vdc, 12vdc, or 5vdc. I am also making the assumption that the rgb rope does not have any smart chips in it like the color ribbon. -If it has data chips in it, you would need a seperate data controller for it, and could not use an lor ac unit. -If it does not have data chips in it, there would be two major hurdles to get over, basically making the attempt not worth it in my opinion. This is why people are saying just get a dc board, it is most likely cheaper and respo
  6. While you are collecting links, Here's another that I have been happy with in the past. It's a Michigan based reseller that has the best prices I've seen so far (if you are talking cost per bulb). The lights that I recieved in the past have been good quality also. (knock on wood) http://www.holiday-light-express.com/ The only catch that i've found so far is that they only sell led mini lights. no c9 or c7 replacements. Hope that helps! Brandon H
  7. CDI stands for Creative Displays Inc. Here's a link to that item you are looking for: http://www.creatived...lacement-Lamps/ EDIT: Nevermind. Max-Paul beat me to it. =)

After creating a single tree with 16 segments, choose "fixtures" at the top right, and double click the tree strand you want to assign channels to. Double click the box under "assigned channels - name" to assign color, name, and channel information to the string. when you fill up more than one box, the tree will show multiple colors without having to create a new tree. Hope that helps! Brandon H. Attached files
  9. Thank you for the update, Dan and DevMike, I really do appreciate it! Jeff, I don't think DevMike is questioning your result, but your methods of getting to that result. While an update is nice to have every few weeks, Forcing a responce by questioning lor's ability to deliver probably wasn't the best option you had at the time. That said: it's just my outside observation. Take it as you'd like.
  10. I can garuntee that version 1.6.9 and later did not chase through all 16 channels unless you left all 16 channels selected. Could you have had all 16 channels selected in the HU and only 5 strings of lights attatched?
  11. Jim, I promise they are not messing with you. The selection of channels to cycle has been around as long as I can remember, and I started with version 1.5 or something in the S1 suite. I would use that feature all of the time in S2 to test circuits.

This can help us save alot of money. The wire runs $100-140 online for 1000 feet, and the ends (plug in's) are $0.50- 0.80 a piece. Here is a link to a spt1 wire and ends page: http://www.christmaslightshow.com/Spt1-Wire-Plugs-and-Sockets-for-Christmas-outdoor-decorations.html Just thought I'd share. Our first year we tried to use the orange cords, and it was a mess!
  13. It is silicone. I used it on the ends of each of my ccr's. The flexible stip likes sliding inside the containing tube and pushing out the start or end caps when it is rolled up and unrolled. Check the end caps of the ccr to make sure that you have a good seal before you put your ccr outside for a month.
