I'm pretty sure the pixels you get in America come from China anyways
Hello Keith -

I understand from Mark_M that you have code for Arduino that allow it to revcieve xLights data in real time? I would be very interested in knowing more about that. I am building a light rack that simulates a sunrise/sunset ovre a model railroad. Part of the requirement is to raise and lower three window shades using three stepper motors.
This is the main code Keith has posted. I would suggest becoming familiar with Arduino C+ variant and learn how xLights sends data for the Arduino to process.
Hi Miked, we enjoy seeing your displays every year. Just wondering what pixels you use? Are they 5v or 12v or a mixture of both?
Hi Albrador, sorry for not replying sooner. Have not been on the forum for a while. Glad you enjoy the lights. Get all my pixels from Ray. The mega tree and C9s are 5V with all the rest 12 V.
Thanks, Email sent as well.

welcome - read the 101 manual - great way to get confused - but filled with lots of stuff that makes sense after a while :)
Hi Keith
Hope you don’t mind me seeking your opinion on something. It isn’t a technical query as such, but more a recognition of the depth and breadth of your overall knowledge of the industry. I am Perth-based member of ACL and recently met with another Perth-ite Cranzy who recommended I touch base with you. Is there an email address I can use?(the character limit makes it difficult to use posts). Thanks Tony.
Is there anyone in Perth that runs tutorials or mentors newbies? Just started out and done a basic layout but have no idea what link it all together

Thanks Gareth

See you then.

Came to see your display tonight about 9:15 like we do every year. Just an FYI that your FM broadcast wasn't working when we came past - the radio searched to the frequency implying something was sending, but it was only static playing.

Hi Shane, Thanks for the call out. I had time issues this year along with a few problems and did not fire the show up till last night, I was just running patterns when you can past.
:thumbsup:All good, just thought I'd let you know in case you weren't aware.
We'll be back in the next few nights to see it in action - yours is on our must-see list every year :D
