  1. Jr Thanks for mentioning that HC has these, I have been using another brands that sticks up in the control box quite a bit and makes it tight in there. I also tried the lor ones and sent them back for the same reason. I ordered 4 of the HC to look at and I will order some more as I do my controller builds as I like the overall space that the connector it self takes up in the control box. I also have this type of connector on all of my controllers. Wayne
  2. Normally, I would have started today January 2nd tearing down, but thanks to the ice storm that came thru yesterday, everything is still covered with ice today and now possibly 2 inches of snow tonight and tomorrow on top of the ice. So my display is still running tonight and may run for a couple of more days till everything gets melted off. Wayne
  3. My show computer is also on the network / internet. But there is nothing on it other than LOR and Zara radio. It also has not missed a beat either. The only reason mine is on the net is that during setup I stream Christmas music out my speakers in the yard. And I also create transfer LOR files from my main computer to the show computer. Wayne
  4. Yes, from CTB-16D's to Gen 3's. The old ones work fine for the most part, but they don't like single strand led's on one channel.
  5. I am not sure on props, But I do want to start upgrading controllers. Would like to do maybe 5 or 6 this year. Wayne
  6. Merry Christmas from Churubusco, Indiana. 14 degrees here this morning
  7. I done that exact same thing a few years ago. I used M6 leds also if I remember correctly. I think this count sheet is what I went by when I done the upgrade. You will need some black out caps since we cannot buy exact counts for what we need. You might count your holes to make sure they line up with my count, just in case the led count changed over the last few years. hope this helps. Wayne
  8. Not sure what you mean by that. I have them set for on/off no dimming.
  9. What experience are people having using LED C9 strobes on LOR controllers? I ordered 10 of these and put them in today to compare them and when I tested them earlier in the day they looked ok. But tonight with my show running, they come on but look dim and like they are in a shimmer mode. I looked at the channels and they show all on when I look at one of the cells. I have 8 of them on one channel and 2 on another channel on a different controller and they look the same. My controllers are the older CTB16D blue boards. Wayne
  10. I am the maintenance director at the local school. Today at about 3:10, I come out of my office into the hall and a little girl ( 1st or 2nd grader ) was passing and says Mr.****** I like your Christmas lights, with joy in her voice. That's why we do this! Wayne
  11. I live on a very busy street. It is Main Street in town here and is a US highway in NE Indiana. I have worried about traffic for a long time. There is a passing lane that starts to the north of my property for a McDonalds on the other side of the road. And I do have people that will stop in front of the house in that lane and watch. They also go to the McDonalds and park in the farthest 2 spots to the west that actually faces my house. So I have actually added some props including 1 of my singing trees facing that way on the South East side of the house. They also back / park in the neighbors
  12. After having surgery 4 weeks ago and not getting a lot of high stuff up when it was 60 - 70 degrees a few weeks ago. And last week the high winds and cold temperatures here in NE Indiana. Wayne
  13. I was originally planning about a week early, which would have been this weekend. But after having surgery and being slowed down, I will go with my normal time of Friday after Thanksgiving. Wayne
  14. I am not sure what your long term lighting is. We resided our house several years ago and I looked and looked for ways to hang things. I made the decision that I was going to decorate the house for a lot of years. So I ended up buying small stainless hooks and used them in my window corners and they worked good. I don't remember the size, they were either a # 4 or #6. But my thought was that if I ever quit, I would pull the hooks out and run a #4 or #6 pan head stainless screw into the hole. I have used a ton of the siding clips for like my corner moldings. I cut about 1/8" of of the end that
  15. Has anyone had the connector nut fail on the rgb floods? Trying to figure out if there is an easy repair to this problem. The only solution that I can come up with is to order the lor 20 foot extension cables and then and cut the connector off of one end and open up the flood light and change the cable out. I have found 2 of these broke this year, not sure why. Glad I have a few spares. Thanks Wayne
