    Hey guys,


    I've been putting Christmas lights up for about 6 years now and wanting to run them through LOR or a DMX system but still unsure what way to go!
    I know its getting a little late to start this year so it wont be till next year now but i thought i would get in early and start learning.
    All my light i run at the minute are BigW, Kmart, bunnings ect


    Thanks in advance
    Mathew

    G'day Matt, great to see another Novacastrian here. I had my first little show last year and enjoyed every minute of it. My setup isn't fantastic but you're more than welcome to come and have a look and pick my brains (won't take long, there's not much there). Roo you're just down the road too so if either of you are interested, give me a yell. I'm at Caves Beach.
    Welcome to ACL fella's.

    If you haven't found it yet, the new revised 2nd addition AusChristmasLighting 101 manual is a great resource
    I will let the experts down under guide you, but from what I know you may be best off to not go with LOR and instead use controllers made local to you there.

    Welcome aboard. First step: set a budget (then double it).
