Hello all
I have been doing static lights for about 24 years and move over to animated in the past 2 years (LOR SP3). Started out with just doing the roof line and that was the start of this addictive hoby. Went from C-9 to mini to almost all led and now I am trying to get my head into DMX. I have been reading a lot about the led pixel (dumb and smart) and find it extreamly interesting. Your sight has been mentioned a lot with high regards to your knowledge base.
Hope to learn some new tips and enjoy the joy of lighting the joy that our hobys produce.
Oh yea - been shocked, fell off roof, throwen breakers, found strings that will not light, been up till 2am hanging lights and dream on my nest display still love every moment

Welcome to acl Dennis. Glad to see another blinkyhead joining up (especially another using LOR). There's nothing much to dmx. It's just another coms protocol and as far as sequencing and running cabling there's no real difference compared to LOR. There's a much bigger range of boards available for dmx so it opens up lots of possibilities for extra blinking :)

In my opinion you have found the best place for RGB on the web.

No known cure for CLAP. Ask some other members who thought they got rid of the CLAP last year just to find that the CLAP comes back harder and stronger if its been in submission. Dont fight it, it will not help.

Scott here from Lethbridge Alberta Canada. where in MT are you?
I am also getting into this whole DMX thing.
I just finished my 3rd LOR season using 112 channels this past year. I'm hoping to replace my 700 c9's with dumb rgb strips.
If you aren't too far south, we should try to get together for a coffee?
