The Wife and I are at odds. I want to run the display (without the outside speakers after Jan 1) thru Jan 8th (which I have told to several people). The FM would continue til then. When do most of you stop your display? I was born Jan, 6th..so planned on running at least thru then, but since thats a Thursday, planned on running at least til that Sat. Any input is good.



Thanks

Last year was my first and I just could not bring myself to pull the plug till after a full week in Jan. This year I will end it on Sunday the 2nd.

But I think I can understand your desire to run it a few days after your birthday. Bet you go out and watch it on your birthday.

New Years eve night is the last show for me. But I will be doing some testing the next night to see if doubling my rainbow floods will help my brightness in a couple of areas and I have 1 controller where the leds would never shut all the way off but would glow dimly even if the show wasn't on. I am going to tear it apart and resolder everything to see if that helps before sending it to Dan. It behaved normally during the show just never would go 100% off. Those same leds would be off when plugged into another controller and the hot and neutrals were not plugged in wrong.

At midnight all the lights will twinkle for 5 minutes and then go off untill Dec 1st 2011.

Create a sequence that makes them all twinkle. I'm just a first year newbie, but with my incredible sequencing skills, would do a minute, and loop it.

Create a show with just that as your animation, schedule it for midnight Friday/Saturday, that runs for 5 minutes.

We did something similar for santa on christmas eve...concern was his being able to find his way to our house ;), so we created a special santa sequence/show, with the lights on at 50% for the night...scheduler shut them off in the AM.
