    I don't believe there is competition, so lets that rest. However as alec say ACL is primarily a chat channel, you have to be there or be left out. DIYC.com is more of good old forum based threads with chat a bonus. that is my 20c worth.

    Ok a few questions.

    1/ I have a bunch of the cheap eBay LED strings, which i believe run at 110v. If i was to tie the whole string tougher could i simply put a single diode in line ( half have rectified?) and switch the whole string from 240Vac from a Triac/opto coupled setup ?

    2/ Where in Oz do i buy the chips for "The Grinch"? Been googling and cant seem to find them.

    3/ Who is selling the Grinch PCB? Still WJon?


    Thanks

    Andre.

    This topic shows that there are a lot of resources out there that others may not know about. Each forum/board has it's own ecosystem and focus and I've tried to capture it here in a list of animated lighting/holiday lighting forums:

    Your cheap Ebay LED strings are probably already 1/2 wave rectified if they are dimmable. You would be better off suing a 240 -110 step down transformer.
    Caution: these light more than like are not considered safe for Australia. We are only permitted to use low voltage ( 18 to 36volt ) light strings here. If your investment in LED strings is not too high, you should consider swapping them out.

    Try the Trade section here. There aren't too many suppliers in Aus. If you are staying with AC dimming control, have you considered some of the newer controllers?

    Yes Wjohn is still your best option to source boards here. He was been a bit busy with his family of late, but normally responds when he can.
