  1. Definitely it depends on the specifics of the room and the users expectations. However, AV sync and speaker placement are basic fundamentals for a proper AV experience. All the advanced video and audio formats we spend so much time on don't help at all if the basics are wrong.
  2. C4 does have the "Audio switching endpoint" and the "Video's audio switching endpoints" for every room. I've never tested this though because I'm not a dealer and my house uses localized audio. Perhaps someone else can answer that better?
  3. Need faster Fire TV gui / menu control in C4?

    That one won't work for IrUSB because it doesn't give you a USB port (their micro port is just for power) Use this one https://www.amazon.com/UGREEN-Ethernet-Adapter-Nintendo-Chromebook/dp/B00LLUEJXW/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1512604000&sr=8-10&keywords=ethernet+adapter+for+fire+stick With an OTG adapter like this one https://www.amazon.com/Micro-Cable-Samsung-Player-OTHERS/dp/B00CXAC1ZW/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1512604261&sr=8-10&keywords=otg+adapter There are many OTG adapters if you don't like the form factor of the one above. These combinations are tested and work well.
  4. Need faster Fire TV gui / menu control in C4?

    Yes, and it is really fast (our driver is fast and the new fire tv itself is faster than the old one). You do need to get a $4 otg adapter also since the new fire tv only has one USB port which is shared with power.
  5. C4 driver for nVidia Shield

    You can edit the driver "online" by just entering the code in the LUA window and clicking execute. It will last till the next reboot I think. I'll add these and check the custom app properties as well once I get a chance. Tied up on the manufacturing right now. Thanks for the feedback!! Definitely makes for a better driver
  6. C4 driver for nVidia Shield

    Correct, there are two lua tables of urls in the driver: urltableaf (amazon app store) urltablegp (google play) You can use the lua window to dump the values if you like. (that way you can see what app_ids will work) for k, v in pairs(urltableaf) do dbg("Key: " .. k .. " Value: " .. v) end When a mini driver launches, it searches urltableaf to find any value that contains the package name in the app_id mini driver variable. On find, it will get the App name from the corresponding key and then use that key to lookup the full app url in one of those two tables based on the app type property. If no match, then it won't send any command (no QLAUNCH in the lua log). New apps can be added by simply adding new values to those two tables (via lua). If you find ones you want, just send to us and we can permanently add to the driver. urltableaf["new app name"]="QLAUNCH appurl\r" urltablegp["new app name"]="QLAUNCH appurl\r"
  7. C4 driver for nVidia Shield

    Are you using the Video Storm c4z driver (with the Amazon minidrivers)? If so, do you have the app type property set to Android TV? The way our driver works is it gets the app_id from the mini driver, tries to match it to a app package from amazon app store to get the actual app name. Then it does a table lookup on that app name to get the android app URL (using either the amazon app store table or the Google play tables bases on the app type property setting on the driver). So you should actually leave the app_ids on the mini drivers as they are (with the amazon app store package name). Does that make sense? Our driver doesn't have Amazon video as one of the defaults. We need to add that. I think our YouTube app url specific to the shield is incorrect also. I'll need to check those.
  8. We will have to look into how to get the skill enabled for the UK. NetPlay Cloud should already work, so it might just be a skill deployment option.
  9. NetPlay Home compatible equipment list

    Yes, they are compatible. $1500 for 8 sources is very affordable. Linda Zheng at Uray can help you. Let them know if is for use with NetPlay / Video Storm.
  10. C4 driver for nVidia Shield

    Ok, the new driver version is ready. This one supports everything the C4 fire tv driver did but is super fast! Mini drivers, app launching, nav, configurable buttons, and even IR control of nearby equipment. Let us know how it works for you! driver link

  12. Need faster Fire TV gui / menu control in C4?

    Thanks for the feedback! In the new version (not out yet) the color buttons can be set to the HOME key. Guide actually has a function in Android TV so we keep it mapped to the native key.
  13. Need faster Fire TV gui / menu control in C4?

    You can remove the original fire TV driver Our driver hdmi output should be bound to the matrix (so C4 will know to select it). We are working on a new version of our driver that supports all the direct app launching and mini drivers as well. Maybe released next week.
  14. Need faster Fire TV gui / menu control in C4?

    The setup instructions are in the driver documentation tab (that also links to our online instructions). The IP address is the IP address of the FIRE TV itself (IrUSB shares the fire tv ip connection) The device id is only needed if you have MORE than one IrUSB attached to the fire tv. The HDMI output is bound to your TV or matrix switch.
  15. NetPlay Home compatible equipment list

    What is one of the best things about NetPlay? Whenever new hardware comes out, you can easily add it to your NetPlay system without making your existing gear obsolete (or paying for a massive system upgrade)! New for XMAS 17: New 4K HDMI encoders: U-RAY 4K HDMI encoders based on the latest HiSilicon chipset Supports all the necessary features for NetPlay (Tiling, RTSP, multicast, etc) ~$370 shipped Order link on Ali Express LINK New 4K decoders: New Ultra HD Amazon Fire TVs Faster, more 4K and HDR than before Fully compatible with NetPlay TV only $69! Add a OTG adapter and wired Ethernet hub for around $15 OTG adapter Ethernet usb hub Remember there are no NetPlay TV upgrade costs when switching to newer decoder hardware! 4K encoders can send 4K to 4K decoders and 1080p to 1080p decoders at the same time. We don't force you to upgrade your older hardware!
