    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 tend to agree, that lawn is begging for a mega tree :)

    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.
