Ok I see 2 people saying they ordered 10 or more but I only see one in the poll, I wonder why that is?

Because it's and unscientific poll? Why worry?

Ya, no big deal hear guys. I'd like to keep it as accurate as possible but if not, no big deal. I just like to hear about success stories and how it happened for companies like Light o Rama.

I ordered one 16 channel MP3 Director and one 16 channel controller, tempted to order a another 16 channel controller for a mega tree, but the wife wants me to leave something for next year. (Not that I can't find anything else to do next year) :laughing:

Wow, so that's like 315 boards right there with this poll. I'd venture to say that this represents (maybe) 10% of the total orders they had this year. I wonder if they are doing all the boards by hand or mechanically done.

If by hand, it may be time to look into a company like Jabil Circuit down here in St. Petersburg. Anybody know anything about their process? Must be amazing regardless.

lol, maybe we should have a special LOR section just for the wives to vent their frustrations out to each other. I myself have already been compared to Roy in Close Encounters of the Third kind and his fascination over that big mountain. lol

Now I haven't gone as far as making a LOR unit out of my mashed potato's on my dinner plate, but the thought has crossed my mind. lol.. jk

WHEN CAN I START SETTING UP CHRISTMAS LIGHTS???? AAARRRRGGG

Hey Dave - Nice, I like the shocked wife - I think all of us have experienced that from time to time!

How do you like the light linkers?

Do you have any other controllers besides the eleven you bought?

I have five and programming 80 channels isn't as easy as it sounds - I can't imagine 176 channels!

Bill, I love the Light Linkers -- one inside, one on each side of the drive, one on the roof. From what little testing I've done, they work great! As a noob, I am truly grateful for how easy this has become, thanks to pioneers who are a lot smarter than me (Dan) and the gracious help of the more experienced people on this board.

I've been hanging around the edges of this site and thinking about going computer-controlled for a couple of years now. But these are my first controllers, clearly violating the prevailing best-practices suggestion to start small. The problem was that once began programming last December, by the time I was done it was pretty involved. There is also likely quite a bit of inefficiency here and there that could have cut out channels as well. I'm sure that most folks here do more with 80 channels than I'm doing with my setup. (Here's an unlinked page where you can see what I'm up to if you get REALLY bored. http://www.thesandersons.org/LOR) But I'm also set for about any show I could want to program in the future using my current light layout.

Let me defend the "noob overkill" on the basis that I'm in advertising, so I like to think I have the advantage of going into a more complicated production with my eyes open. The part that I'm most out of my element is getting the lights themselves all strung right and keeping them lit. That part doesn't change no matter how many channels I have.

Thanks for asking.

First year here. Ordered 4 16-channel boards.

Not to mention all the extras and the Action Lighting snowflakes (20) and the FM transmitter and the.........

Wife saw the boxes then the invoices. Now I have to take her to Jamaica in March!!!
