  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.
  • Christmas 2018 countdown has already begun. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.

    Thinking about it

    I've been running pixels for about 5 years you can't beat the quality of either. Sandevices. E682 or the falcon controllers I use no other controllers for pixels

    Connectivity Issues

    First thing you should do is connect each controller one at at time directly to the LOR USB -rs485 adapter and check to see if it is seen in hardware utility than switch cat-5 cable to verify both ports work .

    LOR connection question

    The order should matter when you go to sequence the tree

    Help with Unit Ids

    just put a new unit number on the new controller and add it anywhere in line it doesn't have to be in order.
  9. hotrods


    After you download open the sequence in the sequence editor and click on the channels and make sure the controller I D. is the same as yours if not change the ID of sequence to match yours
  10. hotrods


    where did you get the sequence from and how many channels does it have and is it for pixels or regular lights what controllers are you using.
  11. hotrods


    When you buy or get sequences online from anyone you have to make sure you channel layout matches the sequences
  12. Just goggle E6804 manual
  13. You can run 340 pixels per output but your going to have to inject power downstream put in the start universe and start channel and it will show the end universe and channel on that output example output 1 340 pixels universe 1 start channel 1 end universe 2 output 2 will start with universe3 and end with universe 4 output 3 will start with universe 5 and end with universe 6 hope this helps

    Help with CCR -II 16 Ribbon Super Star kit

    Light o rama sells 2 ccr clone type of trees and Holiday Coro Sells one that is cheaper, none come with a star Holiday Coro sells a 6 channel star for the top you would have to buy a sequence and see how the channels are layed out to see if you can run the star off the controller

    PAY FOR HELP!!!!!

    IF you used lor last year for sequencing it would be much easier for you as a new person into pixels to use the lor pixel editor , pretty much the same as X-Lights but fewer effects but easy to build a sequence .Are you going to use any lor 16 channel controllers from last year and what type of controllers are you using for your pixels?
