  1. Please see the How to use variables section of our Generic TCP Command driver for usage information. Note that you will have problems automating ip address changes. Your best bet is to create a string variable in composer and use that to set the ip addresses for each. the generic tcp command driver will then grab the variable from that.
  2. Our driver can inject any variable into any part of the URL. If you can get the IP address into a variable then you can append it by using the PARAM{deviceid,variableid} syntax that we use across all of our drivers. Having said that its probably easier for you to just do an IP reservation on your router for the IP addresses.
  3. Hi, Yes that is correct. Our driver brings Kaleidescapes movie library to any Control4 user interface. John Sciacca did a great review of the driver on Residential Systems which you can read up here. http://www.residentialsystems.com/blogentry/1192 Control4's MyMovies database will only work with specific media players. All content must be stored on NAS drives and non DRM based. Media player integration includes Dune, Popbox, Popcorn Hour, Netgear EVA 8000/9000/9100 and also our Kodi Lite driver. Also note that the itunes driver is also standaalone meaning it will not integrate with Control4's MyMovies. Hope that answers your questions.

    Cool. Do you have one?
  5. Chowmain - Advantage Air MyAir Driver

    Looks like an IR based HVAC system. Our IntesisBox driver should work with it. You may need to send your remote to Intesis if they haven't integrated it yet.

    We actually wrote a whole guide on how to integrate white goods into Control4 using IFTTT
  9. Appears we have a broken link on our website for some reason. Its now fixed.
  10. I'm not sure what email address you are sending to but driverCentral's helpdesk operates via phone, ticket submission and live chat from 8:30 to 4:30 mountain time (they're open for another 20 minutes). They've always been really responsive and if they can't resolve it they escalate it to me.
  11. Note that all houselogix licences were migrated to driverCentral. driverCentral is based in Denver which is Mountain Time. Its 5:30 in the morning now so they're not going to be in the office for another 3 hours. Only they can handle your licencing request. I assume you have sent them the licence key so they can check it out for you. Perhaps also send them the mac address as well so they can check their database.
  12. Thanks for the feedback:)

    Yep that is correct. We developed our own image hosting service specially for our drivers so that we don't have to rely on 3rd parties anymore. Free to use indefinately. Your dealer will need to upgrade you to the driverCentral version (all licences have been migrated from Houselogix to driverCentral).
