    I was just researching options for doing either on the facia or under the eves using pvc and came across your post. This is a brilliant idea using the J Channel! It the little things like this that makes this site so valuable. Thank You!

    Edit: I just found your thread using J Channel for around the windows, gunna be stealing that idea too!

    I had a little twist on this idea........none of the wires show with my method......and I leave them up all year.

    There is a second video showing them on the house.

    Steve those videos are 2 years old or so, since you leave the pixels up year around. How are they handling the sun/weather etc. What was your failure rate this year?

    Thanks

    To start this my 3rd year, I had two bad pixels (out of 800). I replaced the first one that was out and the one before it just to make sure I had the right pixel. Now ending the season, I see about 4 pixels that only the red color is not working. I will be waiting till the fall to make repairs and recheck all the pixels.

    I didn't see the image of connectors but many are "JST" and then obviously you have the water proof pigtails that folks add , or have the group they order from, add them on. If there is another connector, sorry missed the image.

    It would be the waterproof pigtails. I could not for the life of me remember what they were called. Thank you. do you have a source you could recommend to get them from?
