I'm trying to get my feet wet with rgb without being to complicated at first. What I'm looking at are pixel strips for holiday coro since they're going to be on sale soon. I'm not looking at doing music at this point but will probably add it next year. As far as this year goes I want to get the pixel strips and something like this http://www.holidaycoro.com/DMX-to-SPI-Smart-Pixel-Decoder-Controller-p/614.html but it says it's only for 170 pixels. So unless I did my math wrong it won't work. Is there anything else like it that I can use? For next year I plan on getting the doohicky that you put the SD card in to play the sequence. I don't have a garage and don't want to leave my laptop outside. Also if you think it's better just to spend the money now and get the whole setup let me know. Also the front of my house is about 60' if I get the pix lite 4 can I just plug in one sting and connect the others end to end. So if I'm asking so much. I've looked a plenty of videos and websites bit can't seem to find the answers I'm looking for. If you know of a site I can get the answers from please share. Could someone please give me some advise. Thanks.
