    Hi Gang.
    So I have been looking at doing some fancier light shows for Christmas. So here I am trying to learn all I can from people who have been doing it. I am fairly handy and do understand some electronics. But where I am getting lost is in the terminology being used to describe things. Lots of acronyms... I feel I have a fair bit of time to prepare for next year however modest. But I would like to have the best in the small town we live in. And since there are no other controlled displays it should not be to hard. I would like to have 2-3 stars in smart pixels maybe a couple of hoops to do the chasing pixels. As well as some of the leds that are just the on/off. I know I will have lots of questions and hope I get answers I can understand.. LOL..
    Thanks in advance gang

    Thanks for the welcome all. I have downloaded the manual and gone through once. Now for the next time which will help things sink in a bit more. Then the 4 times after that.

    Cheers Duncan
