I added a huge star to the top of the megatree this year so I had to change a few things. Amazon links: https://www.amazon.com/shop/canispaterchristmas?listId=WESXFMPFKIX6&ref=idea_share_inf
I put some lights out for Halloween and ran a few sequences. Still have a lot to get done for Christmas. I got a new crimper!
I had a little problem with the mini trees. I put them together backwards. I’ll show you the difference. I also had a pixel go out on my matrix so I show the repair. Thankfully, the weather cooperated.
I need to update a couple of items from the last video. There is a slightly simpler way to set the Colorlight cards. I also show off my mini trees I’ll be adding this year.

Virtual Christmas Summit is this weekend so sign up now if you aren’t already. Also, I go over a little more on xLights custom models.
I didn’t like the way the star was modelled so I decided to convert it to a custom model and wired it the way I wanted.
The annual pixel order came in and I can build some props! Starting off with some modular matrix panels.
