Hey all, recently joined the ACL Community as I want to get into computer controlled lights. I have a fairly decent amount of lights that I normally setup every year but want to build myself a spiral mega tree and control it from a PC. I know a reasonable amount about electronics, can wield a soldering iron with minimal effort and can work with circuit boards without many issues. However I have no idea where to start with this stuff. I was thinking of going with some kind of DC controller and then making sure I get DC lights to run off it. I saw that Big W now have extension sets of lights that you can plug up to your existing Big W lights which means no controller to remove from the strings which I think is great but not sure if anyway has added these to their displays. I have been reading the 101 manual but would like some input from other members on what they recommend I should start with controller wise and power supplies as I never was good with numbers.
