    Default Gemmy LightShow Color Changing LED Light Strings

    I bought these at Lowes with the thought in mind of modifying them. Is there anyway to modify them to use with LOR. I Goggled it and was sent to LOR forums which did not give a lot of info.

    Was looking for guidance from our experts. Any help would be appreciated.

    I am hoping to use some of them as a pixel matrix but wasn't sure if they would work for that. So I'm looking for guidance from our experts. Any help would be appreciated.

    I bet DoItYourselfChristmas.com would be the best place to post your discussion of hacking them. You will not get them to run individual channels from LOR controllers. But if they are actually pixels (like the GE Color Effects bulbs) then you might be able to run them with an e684 or a P2 pixel controller ..

    I've got a number of incomplete projects like that; don't have any of those, though, at least not as of yet.
