  1. You're looking at about $2900 give or take.
  2. Personally I've quit doing hdbt and use just add power for video distribution. But yes, if you pull shielded cat6 or 7 you should be good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. It's not going to be a firmware update. New hardware chips needed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. How many inputs and outputs do you need? As stated above the Control4 one does 4:2:0, and their new stuff only has 2 local hdmi out - most are rj45 with hdbaset. I dont know of any off hand that will do a traditional 8x8 matrix with 4:4:4 on 4k/60.
  5. They just completed a reference design for the specs and introduced it at ISE, so I dont expect anything to ship with those capabilities until later this year or early next. http://www.cepro.com/article/hdbaset_valens_4k_60hz_ul_cable_certification
  6. It will need to be the master controller of the project registered to your my.control4.com account for that to work with the 2.0+ license. At that point, yes it can be used to upgrade your system past 1.6, but I'm afraid that for a quicker system on 2.0+ you'll want more horsepower than the HC300 provides.
  7. Not on the back, but I'd guess the best way to tell is if the Control4 logo on the front is the new "sickle and hammer" style, or the old style. Logo was changed in sept 2010, and the HC200/300/500 were replaced by the 250/800 in jan 2012. OS 2.0 came out in sept 2009. So if you get one with the new logo, it was made between sept 2010 and jan 2012.... approximately.
  8. C4-HC300C-E-B is the last model variant that they did. Slightly faster processor than the previous model.
  9. But it can be cleaner and in some cases more reliable than IR, and frees up a port to use on something that doesn't have IP control or frees up a cable to be used for something else.
  10. I can't say that I've ever had this be an issue or recommended against by Control4, for what it's worth.
