Hello Everybody,

Firstly, Big thanks to anyone who contributed to the 101 Manual. That extensive piece of work has saved me from asking many dumb questions. (Although I do reserve that right for later)

Last year I hung up some lights on my house. (Jindalee - Brisbane) This year I want to control them.
I'm hoping to make use out of my existing BigW style LED lights before inevitably moving on to RGB.

I've ordered a DMX36 and a couple of power supplies.
Now I need to go back to the manual and investigate software options whilst I wait for everything to turn up.

Thanks,
Damo

Hi Damien
There was a bunch of us involved in the 101. Fasteddy did the 1st release with myself and several others proofreading and contributing. I'm such a Christmas light tragic that I stepped up and added bucketloads to the new revision and updated dozens of prices, most of which had come down. There was always more that I wanted to keep adding but the only major thing I really wanted to get in but didn't was info about using dc-dc converters in your display. The 101 is a great place to start, chat is a great place to get answers as you know as you've made an appearance a few times and the mini's mid year is a great place to get ideas and socialise.

Hi Damien
Welcome to this addiction.
I'm close by at Sinnamon Park and a dedicated LOR user. I do have a lot of Big W lights and some limited RGB. There are a lot of effects that can be achieved with standard strings as opposed to RGB & pixels.

If at any time you would like to chat or visit, just give me a call (37157874)
