    Hello everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself. My fiancé and I are excited to start on our lights. For now I have a ton of learning/reading to do before we start spending $
    I'm sure I'll return with questions :D In the meantime, I'll be floating around, having a read.
    Peace ✌️

    hi


    welcome to the house of fun... best place to start is with the 101 manual
    https://auschristmaslighting.com/forums/index.php/topic,1889.0.html
    read it 10 times and jump into chat and say hello
    Without being nasty, you've left your start a bit late for 2016, most people take 12months to get going, but don't let me stop you...
    cheers

    Hey Fing!
    Yeah, I know. I have been mentioning lights to my other half for months, and just now he has said let's do it. We already have a few pixel strips, but the controller is a Ali express one, that was set in demo mode so it was rather boring, and I think I might be wasting my time learning about it, because from what I have read everyone uses other controllers.
    I'm loving the manual. My PC screen is non existent at the moment and my phone isn't opening the PDF properly, so I am limited to just forums at the moment until my PC has a screen again.

    Ha that's funny, normally it's us poor blokes that have to get permission..... :D
    So if you have some strips maybe you just need a different controller/power supply and a bit of time programming to get you started for this year.
    Cheers
