    What's the dealio? Where did everybody go? Is this thing dead? Everybody was like all gung-ho and then P00F! Nothing. I would LOVE to get one of these going by halloween. I can do it if I can get a board. Anybody got a board? What is the hold up? Am I asking to many questions? Are we there yet? How 'bout now?

    I don't know about the rest, but I have completed the Ren-C and the Ren-T for Zero cross. I haven't programmed the PIC, or even assembled the cables to connect it all together. It's just getting too close to show time and I use LOR for my display. I feel like I let Phil and John down for not getting further along, but I bet my reason for postponing testing isn't uncommon.

    I have a few REN-C's headed my way. Once I get them put together and working I'll post an update.

    If you want some send an PM to wjohn he might have some left.

    I've had success. I have one of my REN-C's built and working. Here's a short clip of it in action.

    Are you having the issue where it flickers at the lower dim levels?

    I have the parts and pic programmer ready to go. Just waiting on boards to arrive. I have the 595 and 8 SSR's ready to go as well.

    I'm going to run Halloween on 32 channels. Can't wait for huge throbbing red flood lights the front of the house to a beating heart sound track.

    I haven't noticed any filckering yet. I will play with it more next week.
