    Wow, who would have thought a few years ago our family went from 6 channels (Mr. Christmas Box) to our first year of (LOR 2011-2012 350 LOR channels) to this past Christmas (2012-2013) 450 LOR channels, 8 colors, 100,000 LED's (all dumb strings) to this upcoming Christmas (2013-2014) where I expect to have 500 LOR channels and perhaps 1000 RGB 'pixels'.

    Unfortunately, I don't know a thing regarding smart strings, RGB, DMX or E1.31. As a matter of fact, It's so bad, that I don't even know what I don't know. However, I think I found a good place to start.

    However in a few years we managed to win first place in our city and I am now the ''go to guy'' regarding LOR. I expect by this Christmas to have a good solid foundation regarding RGB pixels. HELP!!!!!!

    Welcome to ACL, the first place to start is with the ACL 101 lighting manual that should help give you the theory behind how it works. It may all seem overwhelming at first but eventually all the pieces fall into place

    Welcome to ACL. You will get more learning here than any where else on the net.
    Your videos are good. I really liked the "Taking Care Of Christmas" one the most...
    We hope you can also share some of your LOR knowledge with us...
    There are all types of programs being used here so every one's help can be of good use....
