    Hello all:
    I've got one year under my belt using LOR software and controllers. As many have discovered there is this thing called DMX / Dumb and Smart pixels, which has really peaked my interest in using them.
    Everyone said this was the place to get the information when dealing with this stuff! So I can't wait to get these lights dancing!
    Thanks,
    Larry :)

    Welcome to ACL, im sure you will find all the info you need to deal with RGB lighting. A good place to start is with the ACL 101 lighting manual found here.
    feel free to ask any questions and you should get most answers

    Welcome to ACL Larry.
    You are right this is the place to find out how to turn your standard LOR set up into the world of smart and dumb RGB.
    Thanks to the guys here I turned 80 LOR channels into over 3000 channels of pixels, best thing to do is ask as many questions as you want.
    Welcome aboard.

    You must be in some kind of space-time continuum because the last time I drove 2 hours south from Cleveland I was in Columbus and the last time I drove 2 hours north from Columbus I was in Cleveland! :D

    ...but then again, I've been told that I drive pretty fast... enough to rip the space-time continuum into pieces!

    Greetings from a fellow Ohio-an, who got sick of putting up his Christmas lights in the cold so he moved to Florida.

    I was kind of thinking the same thing! I've drove that path a lot. I live in Fairfield, which is a suburb of Cincinnati, very close to Dayton. Anyway south of you all! My Mother lives in the Cleveland area so I visit a lot.
    I meet more people from Ohio on a Aussie Forum, go figure! :)

    I was living west of Hamilton in Millville until 3 weeks ago, hopefully in a month I will be in Shandon, a little further west but still in the Ross School District.
    Your map pointer missed your house, needs to move a little bit north-east. :D :D :D

    The AusChristmasLighting 101 manual is a great reading resource. There is also the WIKI which has even more info. Chat room for instant help is a great tool. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask, people will gladly point you in the right direction.
