Hi everyone! My name is Matthew and I live near Southampton in the United Kingdom. I've seen some of the you tube clips of Christmas lights to music over the past few years and thought it would be great to do that myself. It's not overly common in the UK. I don't know anyone else near me that does anything like it. So I thought I'd look in to how it's done thinking it must be straight forward. How wrong was I?!!! My head hurts from all the info I've read so far! I joined the DIY Christmas forum a few weeks ago and have only recently found this forum too. After all my reading I've decided to start with a Renard64XC controller. Lots of questions are buzzing round my head!! I'm hoping as it's 240volts in Australia (rather than the 110v in the USA) I'll be able to get lots of help and advice here. Really excited by my new found "hobby". It'll be great to get something built and working, eventually!!!!
