    Hi cdg - I would suggest you contact the vendor at Radiant-Holidays to determine if it should be programmed or not and for general help for the Renard Plus controllers you should probably go over to diychristmas.org as all of the developers are over there. It's possible the PIC is not programmed, you will have to pick up a PIC programmer and program it yourself or you can ping folks near you and see if they can program your PIC for you via snail-mail...

    To my knowledge, you do have to program it. You will need a PIC programmer that can attach to the ICSP header on that board. You can download the files to program the PIC with from here.

    That should be all you need, but if in the future you get into other controllers, you may need the socket too.

    You can also watch my video for help.

    If you update your profile to let people know (roughly) where you are... someone who is local to you might be able to assist with the programming.
