    Hello and merry Christmas to all!!!


    I am new to this forum and would like to gain more info on how to set up my music display. For a couple of years we have had a basic light display but I think it's time to take it to the next level. Can someone please direct me to which sub topic I should post in as I have no idea on where to start with all this.


    Thanks again


    Derek

    Hi Dez, welcome to ACL.

    Read the 101 manual, when you think you've got it, read it again. There are some things in Xmas lights that don't make sense at first blush.

    Then get into chat. It's about their BBQ but ask and you will get help. R

    p.s. set a budget - mine was $1K ha ha

    Welcome to ACL, starting with the ACL 101 manual is the best start, it may actually confuse you at first but thats because of information overload. But it becomes clearer as time goes on and with the help of the forum

    Thanks all. Yes I have read the 101 manual and I am now more confused than ever. I guess I understand all the terms etc but not sure how to apply it to my situation and where to start??

    As has been already said once or twice :D read the manual a couple of times.
    Some of it will start to make sense, but for the parts that don't, just ask and the friendly folks here will be glad to help.

    One place to start is figure out what (of your existing lights) do you want to blink.
