  1. I cut 1 ten foot cat 5 cable at about 7 feet down, strip the wires. I use orange for data , light colors for 12v and dark for ground. The they are linked together with rj 45 couplers Sent from my SM-G928V using Tapatalk
  2. Mike i use cat 5 between each post and it is 7 feet between each post exept in the back where its 8 feet on one side and 6 on the other but that's just because of where the fence starts. Sent from my SM-G928V using Tapatalk

  4. 1 output controls all of the poles. And its only 9 pixels because of how I have the globe wired. I use a total of 11 pixels but 2 pixels on the globe are wired so that they each recieve the daya for pixel 9 in the model so tje globe glows only one color for all three pixel modes in there Sent from my SM-G928V using Tapatalk

  12. Mike i do that with 8 dmx wall washers across the house. Then i program it all in x lights. Get good 36-60 watt wall washers that are dmx controlled. I tried 10 watt ones and the rest of my light show washed the colors out. Sent from my SM-G928V using Tapatalk

  15. Hey all. As it is time to take it all down I wanted to ask a question. Usually I have very little snow on the ground to contend with and can take my display down with relative ease... This year I am stuck with snow on the ground about 8 inches worth and don't see it melting anytime soon. Any tips on getting thing taken down? It is not going to melt as we are not getting above freezing much over the next few weeks it seems and if it snows again it will just reinforce the issue.....
