    Just wanted to introduce myself.


    My husband and I have been using computer animated christmas lights for the last 10 years, first at his parents house then we moved the display out to our house when it grew too large.


    Originally we made all our own relays (116 - 240 volt channels) and used dasher on an old (still working) 386 computer.


    3 years ago we upgraded to a commercial system (200 multi voltage channels) and now we have decided to investigate Pixel technology.


    It's a big step away from what I know, a very big learning curve.

    You have certainly found the right place for that.
    Which part of QLD are you guys in?
    there might be someone close for you to have a look at.

    Rubbish Crystal, if you did your own relay boards you will find pixels very simple. Welcome aboard. I feel you will help us more that we help you. There is a lot of knowledge and 'can do' in ACL. Read the 101 guide and get into chat. R

    I'm surprised I did not welcome you aboard earlier. You seem to be totally across dimmer boards. Pixels are much more simple IMO (unless you chose to DIY for fun) R
