    Question GECE or Lightshow CE

    ok, I have been trying to find the GECE's here in the great white north....lol. I have checked Home Depot, Rona, Costco, Walmart and even Canadian Tire. No one seems to have them, 'tho I thought I saw them at Costco yesterday, but they are not there today.

    What I am seeing is the Lightshow brand CE's. Can they be "hacked" the same way as the GE's? They sure look the same.

    i looked at the lightshow brand and they don't seem to be pixels but just power for each band of color that is turned on and off with there control to mimic a lightshow

    There are more than one type of LightShow brand and I thought one looked like it used a 4 wire pixel type drive. I'll check again when I'm over there today.

    I believe people here have cut open every brand out there. Some are not pixels, some are pixels with propitiatory chip, some have a normal chip but propitiatory programming. So to date the GECE are the only ones to be used with a E68x. Note that the E68x is the only controller to date that supports the GECE.
