Hey All,


New to the forum, looking to find some info/help on choosing controllers for a christmas light setup I have in mind, Look forward to speaking to you all.


Heres a shot of our basic setup for now




Looking to spruce things up for next year with some synchronisation and a mega tree of some sort :D


Cheers,
Eric.

hehe don't think I will be going for 240 channels, all I really want to do is setup similiar placings to what i have now + the driveway, add the tree and synchronise it all...

Once I figure out what controller I'm gonna be using lol

Welcome to ACL, you have found the right place to help you on your way to a great display in 2011, lots of great guys and info here.
As far as 240 channels, thats not many when we start talking RGB lighting and pixels which im sure you will learn all about.

Yeah already done a bit of reading about all the stuff, I really should have said, that I wouldn't be using that many sets of lights hehehehe cos the wife would kill me, although I'm sure I can persuade her into buying more sets :D


Cheers,
Eric.

Gonna bump this up and say I'm still here :D


This year I have acquired an old school olsen 595 + renc for a total 64 dimmable channels! I doubt to be using that many maybe a little over 1/2 that I would think!


Cheers!

I would agree with you all, however you don't know what the people are like around here. It'd either get knocked off or smashed, Which is why I was tending to go for a tree around my porch support pole instead!


Cheers.
