  1. Static vs DHCP

    A DHCP reservations means the DHCP server reserves an IP address for that MAC address and always assigns that MAC address that IP address. The controller is set to DHCP so it asks the DHCP server for an address. The reservation makes sure it gets the same assignment every time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. C4 not working anymore

    I’ll agree with that. Serial is my first choice, then IP. If neither are available, I don’t buy the item. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. C4 not working anymore

    I use IP control on my Marantz and it’s been flawless. I have a fairly large install and don’t have a single IR driver. As was mentioned, you’ll need your dealer. Did you replace the receiver with the same brand? Did you plug everything back in to the same inputs? If so, hopefully it’s as easy as him/her updating the DHCP reservations to include the new MAC address or adjusting the IP on the AVR. If it’s a completely different AVR it will be a little more work but still shouldn’t be too bad. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. JAP "for Dummies"

    Put all the equipment in the rack where you’re not worried about noise. Put the devices you want to reboot possibly on a Wattbox so you can easily remotely reboot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Just buy JAP and be done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is the 22-47ms delay caused by JAP noticeable? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. HDMI switch questions

  8. HDMI Matrix and Xbox One

    Another big factor for me in choosing to buy Luxul gear (both initially and now) is that they are a local company, headquartered close to my home. I’ll support a local company like that over a company like Cisco any time it makes sense. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Why not just use a system like JAP and be done with it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. HDMI Matrix and Xbox One

    Because my other switch is Luxul so it matches in the rack (ports on the back so they’re mounted in the front) and because it came recommended. It was spendy though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. HDMI Matrix and Xbox One

    I did. I bought a Luxul...I believe the model is 2624p but I could be wrong. My existing switch was FULL, so this gave me some additional headroom as I can use the ports that JAP isn’t using for anything. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. HDMI Matrix and Xbox One

    I just want to throw this out there. The Just Add Power system is AMAZING. I’ve been sidelined on HDMI distribution due to all the issues I’ve heard of people having. This functions FLAWLESSLY, exactly like my component distribution system did. I used existing CAT5e runs (not shielded and running through a patch panel) and it just works perfect. BlackWire Designs did all the setup and so it was literally plug and play. And how cool is it that I effectively have a 7 input 4 output matrix (it’s actually 7:3 but the 4th is receiving local HDMI pass thru)? Soon I’ll likely add a 5th, but LOVE having that flexibility. I’d highly recommend it for anyone looking at HDMI distribution. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Push Notify Driver

    I really enjoyed it. For some reason I can’t remember I decided to start using the product built in to the 4Sight subscription. I’ve since decided that’s not necessary and want to go back to using it but can’t due to Extra Vegetables servers being offline. I guess I need to reach out to Kevin at Blackwire and see if I need to buy another key or what’s up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. 4-zone matrix amplifier

    You should also make sure you have the correct driver and that it’s identified properly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
