    Sorry, I just tried to send but it says that the file is too big for the server. Not sure how to compress it.

    Don't know about the Pi but I just bought this off eBay and so far, it seems to be up to the task. https://ebay.us/pWUOq2 .

    Some shots of my cheapy projector - I'm impressed ( just not with my camera skills ) plus a shot of my cheap (Big W) lights. This is the last year of my basic stuff, next year I'm going to be more up to date with things.

    Hi from Queensland

    I have quite a few light strings ( Big W ) which I may be able to build around for this year, I am looking around for a controller also. But mostly just as happy to stick with same as last year and just take my time planning for next year so that I can start off decently.

    Hi from Queensland

    I've been doing a lot of reading on the forum, absolute wealth of knowledge and experience here. I'm just trying to get my head around some of it. Biggest problem right now is budget - Kids might be a little put out at lack of gifts versus fantastic light show :-)

    Hi from Queensland

    I think I'm a bit late for this Christmas, so planning for next Christmas. Gives me plenty of time to plan and gather the gear together.

    Hi from Queensland

    Hi, I've had a pretty basic light setup for the last 5 or so yrs and have decided to step up my game and so I'm looking for ideas and help on a bigger and better display.
