Newbie 10' 16-Channel Straight Mega Tree


Recommended Posts



I want to thank all of you out here and on YouTube that helped me figure out how to do this.  The video can be viewed at 


This is our very first entry in to Light-O-Rama products, and figured that this is a learning year (season) for us.  For the basis of the tree, we followed the 2x4 wood method as outlined by YouTube user amx4perry, posted Nov 30, 2009.  The only difference is that we painted all our wood flat black.

We have one (1) 16 channel Light-O-Rama residential controller, and one (1) Showtime Central add-on, which plays the sequences from an SD card via the mini-Director and broadcasts the music via the FM transmitter (you all know this, but for other newbies...).  This means I did not have to use a computer or run a Cat5 cable out to the tree to make it work, or setup speakers that would annoy the neighbors.
Lights for this year are all standard (aka cheap) Christmas lights from Home Depot.  Channel colors are as follows:
Chan 1: White
Chan 2 - 5: Blue
Chan 6: White
Chan 7 - 10: Blue
Chan 11: White
Chan 12 - 15: Blue
Chan 16: White light ball on top of tree
This is our very first sequence, and is set to Ho Hey by the Lumineers.
