    Even thought I have been a member for a while and have visited AusChristmasLighting from time to time I have not posted any messages, well at least so far.

    My name is Dean Davis and I live in Oregon. I am a partner with mactayl with the Renard Plus line of controllers. We have been working hard to get a controller that can be used Down Under and Mac has finally made the necessary changes for 220v operation out of the box.

    I have been in the holiday lighting hobby for a little over 4 years and it has really gotten into blood.

    So I look for guideiance where we can tell anyone about our products, share our ideas, etc.

    Thanks again

    Dean

    OK, please take a look at our website www.renard-plus.com

    Our initial controllers are 16 channel in both the low current version and the hi. All in all we have about 16 boards and several are still on the drawing board.

    Looks like you may have to change the link now with having no access to DIYC

    We will provide support for questions, ideas, build assistance through the DIY Christmas alternative forum. Here you can ask any questions, use what information you need and leave the rest. We are real down to earth here and don't get excited about much of anything except holiday lighting projects.

    Yes this a separate Forum that was setup when DIYC went down awhile back and most of the DIYC Wiki info was stored there. I don't believe that the info is there anymore, I may be wrong.
