Ok, I've ordered some hardware from Alan Hanson. 1,DMX2-18 1, USB-DMX Dongle. I think I still need a power supply, and Patch leads from Jaycar he reckons. Then to download xlights. Totally new to this, so one controller will do me for now. I live in Ipswich qld, is there anyone near by I can come and see to get some tips? Would love to see it live. This xmas, I want to try to use my existing big w, Bunnings, xmas shack lights. Very nervous atm.
