  1. Controversial Topic

    This is, if course, correct - ;-)
  2. WAP is right, HDMI and hdcp is a pain in the ass. It rarely works for months without issues
  3. Controversial Topic

    Control4 wouldn't loose sh** if Composer would be available to end users or HE allowing some minor stuff like lights, relays and so on for a simple reason: People that buy control4 hardware usually have enough money and have a lot of work and therefore almost no interest in doing DiY. Those who are I interested in DiY are only like 0,5-1% and meet up here. But it's a never ending discussion, Composer for all won't happen. Ppl just need to get used to it.. !

  5. In case that doesn'T help deinstall MyHome and AIR. GO to the settings folder on your PC - AppData - and under "Local" and "roaming" delete everything with MyHome and AIR. Install AIR and MyHome and it will work. I had this like 2-3x already. If it doesn't work you missed sth in those folders
  6. HC800 - Disadvantages?

    800 is still fine if u r okay in missing some new stuff. It will however go EOL within the next 3 years I guess, but that's enough time to try Control4 and decide.
  7. We did quite a project with Vinceldub - ask him, I hope he doesn't have any more nightmares about it :-) - and he managed it all, honestly he did much more than any Control4 dealer we had at the place since 2008. From a scale from 1 to 10 - solid 13!
  8. Sonos still best for multi-room?

    I had Sonos and I ditched it after they introduced the new driver with actually much worse Control4 integration and ever since I am very happy with my Denon HEOS devices
  9. Just after I bought a new Samsung 2017 UHD TV 5 months ago ....ahhh crap
  10. What actually up with HL? They got bought by SnapAV, which is with me. But from some posts here on gets the impression that SnapV/HL is about to seize selling drivers and/or support? - Which would kinda suck for the C4 3rd party driver market. Is there any official Information regarding HL?
  11. Controlling Somfy Motors

    Thx a lot. That clears up what those drivers can do. I just browsed the European Somfy site and noticed that RTS is marked as legacy and they deploy wireless shades via the new io-homecontrol protocol. Link: https://www.somfysystems.com/downloads/nam/guide_io_en.pdf Do you know if there is chance that it is supported via Control4?
  12. Denon HEOS Drivers Released

    Yea mine is older and I can't find a newer one for debian wheezy. With the HEOS network shares I figured out the sorting issue - it doesn't like 1/4 2/4 and so on. So I fixed that. What still bothers me with the HEOS network integration is sorting when browsing via "genre" -> "artist" - it then lists all tracks for that artist and not "albums" and it lists the tracks as follows: Track 01 - Album 01 Track 02 - Album 02 Instead of: Track 01 - Album 01 Track 02 - Album 01 So when browsing via "Genre" its not possible to just play a multi album collection.
  13. Controlling Somfy Motors

    I just recognized that this new driver supports MyLink and UAI - has anyone done both and can elaborate which is better?
  14. Controlling Somfy Motors

    Yeah that seems to be the easiest way to do it - set up everything on the Somfy side via RTS and the use the Wifi-Bridge with the MyLink driver. I didn't know of this bridge, looks like the page has been updated since the last time I looked.
  15. Thoughts on buying C4 equipment on Ebay?

    If u buy a HC in eBay check the following: Needs to have "-1" at the end of model number As for software version Ask your dealer if he will swap/install and update it four you and as for a price The overall price should be a lot less than for what he would sell you a new EA HC, otherwise going used with last Gen isn't worth it. I bought my HC800 on eBay like 3 years ago, all went fine. Install an update was like 150$ or so. At the time he didn't have a problem with used stuff
