  1. Thanks guys that's what I wanted to hear whether it was ok or not. I appreciate other products are bigger or better and I don't have to use these but it ultimately didn' t answer my question. I plan on using these either as stated or in a different configuration.
  2. I already have the cg 1500 enclosures and actually while they are slightly bigger they are more expensive than what I paid for mine. I' just wondring if someone has an opinion if this would be ok in my environent or am looking for disaster doing this
  3. Wondering if mounting two holiday Corp 27 channel dumb controllers in one of these cases with a power supply mounted in the lid would be too much. My shows run primariy Oct into Jan and I do live in Wis so itsa usually somewhat cool to cold, just don' what to overheat anything
  4. I'll take some too if you dont mind, Thanks in advance Soye13@msn.com
  5. A couple of years back I got a deal on a bunch of plastic real tree bases and zip tied by tomato cages to them. Makes them heavy enough to keep them from tipping over and insulates them from shorting or bleeding to ground. Now I just have to figure out something for my wire frame deer.

  10. For the last 3 or 4 years I've went out dressed as Santa waving to traffic as it goes by (we live on a major thoroughfare) and handed out candy canes and little coloring books to the kids that are with the families that stop. Not as many stop ask I would like but the ones that do love the gesture. I've also had my wife dressed as Mrs Claus and grandkids dressed as elves and got a very nice response. Just with new job I don't get out as much as I would like, only Saturdays and some Sundays, hate that. I also have had several people try to give me money and I told them no thanks that's not why I
  11. Old sarge I would love a copy of this thanks soye13@msn.com
  12. Am I missing something here, cordset is 16 cords lor price is $30 Walmart price was $2 = $32 mono price was $1.50 = 24 plus your labor ?
  13. Thanks guys I finally found it. It was on Planet Christmas from back in Aug 2009 labeled Animation is Rudolph by Frank_Lo. Unfortunately it doesn't show any construction but I'm thinking of this as a long term project I would like to start and build right to sort of interact with visitors.
  14. This was a stuffed Rudolph that he bought and took the stuffing out. I believe he put it over a wire frame and used servos and I think it was 30 inches or so tall.
  15. On one of the Christmas forums somebody posted an article and video of a robotic Rudolph that he had built, it was full body and it's head and neck along with the mouth moved and his video showed it saying some of the phrases from the movie. I thought I had book marked it but can't find the bookmark or the page. If there is anyone that might remember this and can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  16. I wouldn't recommend the rs485 doesn't work very well for DMX go with the actidongle from holiday coro I've used mine for 3 years with no issues.
  17. As far as them wanting to do behind the scenes I don't profess to know their motives but I have a very well known local reporter who wanted to do a series of stories on everything from concept to opening day we wernf able to get together on a schedule for this year so they came out and did some short interviews and video to air during the news on christmas day with the understanding that we'll try to vet together for the big story next year.
  18. You sound a lot like me. I work on a very limited budget. If I want something I have to do some work on the side to afford it so expansion each year is limited. I also rent and although my landlord is really leinient i'm still limited in what I can do. 4 years ago I bought a mr christmas musical show box aftertwo years and seeing a show that showed a LOR box I bought one and ran with one box 16 channels. Last year I dabbled in rgb with snow globe's on 18 channels with a few problems along the way. This year I added 32 more LOR chanells two more rgb globes and a 12 section 36 channel 10' rgb t
  19. Just wondering I haven't seen too much mentioned of this. Does anyone here dress up as Santa and go out into their display. I've been doing it the last couple of years, my wife bought me a costume a couple of years ago and made me a better one this year. First time took a lot of convincing and prodding from my wife as I'm actually a fairly shy guy but once I got out there I had a ball. We added Mrs Claus last year and my grandkids dressed as elves this year. We live on a fairly busy road one of the main roads out of town ( one way ) and I just go out and wave to traffic as it goes by and give
  20. I must of had a real DUH moment. Last year I ran the audio from my pc to a surround sound receiver via a stereo jack plugged into the headphone jack on th e pc and the stereo audio in jack on the receiver then out to the speakers and used the receiver to produce a Phantom 5.1 sound (fake). This year I decided I wanted to eliminate the receiver and used a powered sub that receives a low power 5.1 sound from the pc amps it up and outputs it to the speakers not thinking that if it only gets a stereo sound it was only going to output a stereo sound and the rest of the speakers would be silent sin
  21. Ok does anyone know why when I play an mp3 from windows media into a 5.1 system I get sound from all speakers as I should but when I play the same file through LOR sequence editor all I get is sound from the front left and right nothing out of rears sub or front center speaker? And how to fix this ?
  22. What im actually looking for is how to turn them on and off in the software without having to do it in each sequence ie in the background before and after the show
  23. Is there a way to control my static elements like inflatables, FM transmitter, and power supplies for dmx network from lor. I want to be able to turn these on before the show and then off at the end of the night. I used timers before (they don't like to stay in sinc) but would really rather control it all from lor without using x10 or something like that. I keep thinking it should be from background or animation for the show but can't find it.
  24. Looking for a recomendation for replacing the c7's inside my inflatables with LED's. I tried c7 cool white faceted bulbs from 1000 bulbs (was told these would be the brightest) but they barely show through the fabric.Trying to cut back on power use where I can. Thanks for the help.
  25. Thanks guys that answers my question thinking of building a new pc and taking everything off the old one, it just seems to run slow no matter what I do with it.
