    I haven't tried it, but I do have 2 snowmen, and the nodes look the same, just white wire and plastic. Controllers are slightly different, no remote, single push button, but still 5vDC Power, 3 conductors, etc. Picked them up cheep at sears a few weeks ago

    There's a good chance I might be playing with one of the tree sets early next year - A coworker of mine has them and is VERY interested in controlling them.

    those things fixed, it's working, mostly, but, it leaves a light on here and there, seemingly at random, as it goes back and forth, plus, the colors aren't what you said you intended, they vary, but are pale cyan's, magenta's occasionally yellow, light green, somewhat inconsistent..

    cool otherwise! programming project grade: b ;)
    Thanks for the feedback. I fixed the post.

    I am attaching a VC# project which shows what this is supposed to look like.

    is that a windows thingy?

    using ubuntu here. don't think I can see it, but I put some debugging code in yours, and the numbers coming out of the WheelRGB function don't look anything like what they should, and thus the colors aren't anywhere near red green and blue.

    it looks like you're going for something between 0 and 255 for each color, but the color values are only 0-15.

    Well, it is a windows app, but you can compile it using mono.

    Thanks for pointing out the color range, I totaly overlooked that little detail. I fixed both the code and the C# app showing it off.

    Many thanks,

    Lowe's is up to 60% off on Christmas decorations. I got the last 2 sets of icicles for $31 a piece (36 lights).

    Would one of you that got these at Lowes, please post the Lowes sku number from the receipt?

    So far I have not found any left in my area and would like to have them check if any other store has some.

    Thank you.

    Question Re: RGB LED's Now Consumer Grade - Hackable?

    I was wondering if anyone here would be willing to write up some code for use on a Arduino Uno to have all lamps on a string to show the same color (same address for each node) and just control the RGB intensities of that address using the A0-A2 analog inputs on the Arduino Uno board?

    A0=Red
    A1=Green
    A2=Blue

    Example:
    A0=5V
    A1=~2.5V
    A2=0

    This would give (for the entire string of lights):
    Red on full
    Green at approx half intensity
    Blue off

    Of course this would be running continuously so any voltage changes would change the color of the string of lights.

    Get what I am saying?

    Can someone do this?

    Hello, today I did a search on the main lowes page using the term "christmas", then I clicked on "christmas light strings" and set the filter to "GE"
    I have purchased two sets from two different stores. the Lowes part number I have on both receipts is "25042"
    good luck!
    stephen (who just got a arduino!) can't wait to play with these lights!
