    Total newbie for computerised lights. I have been decorating the outside of my home for some years and decided after Christmas that this year was going to be the BIG ONE.
    I have searched sites and just found this one so hope I will find some good hints.

    For some reason I can't seem to find the forums. Could be that I am new? Do I need to post a certain number?
    Also can someone tell me if LOR post to Australia and if I need to convert their equipment to Australian power.
    Sorry if this sounds dumb but I can't find the info on their site or maybe I have had too many birthdays.
    Thanks
    Graham

    yes LOR do post to Australia and no conversion is needed, except for a jumper setting which they will usually set before they ship, if LOR is what you are after, don't rush in just yet, explore your options a,d try take in as much as you can to make an informed decision, you've got a few months up your sleeve until December 2012 :)


    Jump into chat sometime, there are always members available to answer any queries you may have....

    Hi, and if u do order any 240v LOR controllers, its best to get them with out the lead sets, as they are somewhat heavy and cost a bit to ship. So its better to simply get some cheap extension leads from bunnings, and cut the male end off and wire it into the board. Saves a fair bit, if your handy with a screw driver, wire cutters and a soldering iron.
    Cheers, have fun,

    And if you need help, Bathurst is only 40 minutes away from here :)

    You were not the guy who spent some time here recording my show were you? My wife spoke to you but I think I was doing Santa Pics that night.
