Coyote_94YJ Yikes. Didn't know it took that long. That's insane. So you start planning your Christmas lights display in May.

JeepersdoitDeeper One of the Dallas area homes, possibly that one does this every year. They have added a couple neighbors homes to the display this year. Takes 8 months to put together. They said next year they will start with houses across the street controlled though a wi-fi set up.

TommyFTR that is pretty cool.

Coyote_94YJ One of the guys I talked to said they just broadcast on what ever FM frequency and they'll have 2,3 or more songs lined up and they just play continuously through set times like from 6-9pm so you can drive by and tune the radio in at anytime between 6 and 9.
Some guys will have up to 6 songs programmed in. You can just stop and listen/watch all 6 if you want.

The video said FM 107.3 so the Rush Limbaugh thing is out

There was one I saw from several years ago using that same song. I was going to do something like this a few years ago but its very time consuming. It's not a matter of just plugging in a few things and pushing play. You have to do all the computer programming and that takes hours upon hours.

Here is the one I saw a few years ago, and another really really cool one that I like using Carol of the Bells.

skeeter I heard a lady from dallas TX area being interviewed the other day. She runs a decoration company that sets displays like this up for wealthy people. $7000 to $10,000 just to do one house.

this is awesome. apparently you can buy a computerized outlet that you plug the lights into and it does the show in unison with the music.
