This website is getting dusty, but the LEs and Aethers are still running just fine and dandy.
Here are a couple of newer tunes I added.

if you want to see the landscape of RGB controllers, here is a table that compares them.

I have 10 of the falcon controllers. If you use xlights as your sequencer the controllers can be automatically configured to match what you set up in xlights.
I have 130,000 channels or 250 universes running at 40fos, no lag. We have tested to 1 million channels at 20fps. this should be enough for most users

you will find info on xlights at xlights.org,
on facebook we have 4000 members You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Lynx SSR4 / Re: SSR4 v2 BOM vs SSR4 v3 BOM
« Last post by tbone321 on December 30, 2017,  »
I believe that the current BOM with the exception of the transformer will work.  The RS485 is different but is pin compatible so it should also work.  The best bet would be to order one to start and use it to test and confirm prior to ordering a bunch of them.  You could post a request for the older transformers in the buy / sell area and see of anyone has any extra's they are willing to part with.  It may take a little while to get a reply as the site is not as active as it used to be.

Lynx SSR4 / SSR4 v2 BOM vs SSR4 v3 BOM
« Last post by rjhodgefamily on December 30, 2017,  »
So I purchased several SSR4 v2 boards this past year not realizing they were the older boards. Luckily I snagged the transformers that were for sale at the same time. I plan on building these out for DMX. Is there anything else different that I should worry about, or can I use the current BOM to build out the v2 boards? Tried going through the wiki history for to figure out what the old BOM was but couldn't really track it down.

On a side note does anyone know a source to pick up a couple more of the transformers? Or are my 2 boards that I have without transformers paperweights?

Lynx Smart String / Re: Smart string update please
« Last post by tbone321 on December 30, 2017,  »
I would say that this site is pretty much at the end of its run.  RJ has been good to keep it going for now but since he has not posted here himself for many months and is no longer developing anything new for the group, there is not much going on.  All is not lost however.  If you are looking at RGB, then I would take a look at Falcon Christmas.  They are pretty much all RGB nodes and controllers.  Dave Pitts has created some impressive RGB controllers that can directly run many types of pixels and that is also the main site for FPP which runs on the Raspberry PI and replaces the need for a PC to schedule and run the show.  I personally found that their WIKI really doesn't hold a candle to what Rick accomplished here and the way they do things over there are a bit different but there are still some good people over there (many from here) that are willing to help when needed.

Lynx Smart String / Smart string update please
« Last post by Christmasaddict on December 30, 2017,  »
Until last year I was running a 9000 light mega tree using 3 Lynx Express controllers.  Some of you may remember my post of it being destroying in a storm.  I didn't do an animated show this year as I was trying to decide how or whether to move forward.  I think I want to make the move to an RGB tree for 2018.  I have not been active on the DIY website for some time and am a little concerned about the seeming lack of activity and posts on the site.  Can someone update me as to what is going on?  I was thinking about utilizing the Lynx Smart String however I'm not sure if it is even a current, available product and if will it be going forward.  Thanks for any input.
