Hi, Whilst I am not a newbie to the world of blinky flashy, and have been a member of DIYC for some time now. Now looking to upgrade to pixel lighting. So I read forum after forum about protocols , volts , wireless and non wireless configurations ect , when all I really needed first is to understand how this pixel thing is all put together and combined with other renard based systems , then combined with Vixen. Then I came across the Auschristmaslighting manual , Great manual. Thanks. So this year will be mostly dumb RGB from Ray , and lots of researching on Pixel lighting for next year.
