  1. Before I reboot the 250 -- what does this mean and is there something else I should do vs just reboot it? Thanks!
  2. Or can it be controlled via IP? I know the PS3 remote is Bluetooth and not IR etc.
  3. How are you using Digital Audio?

    I asked a broader question in a thread about the 8 zone amp -- but this is probably a better place for it. Specifically if you connected an Hc-800 to the 16 channel amp -- using RCA cables -- is there a significant drop off in sound quality vs connecting it via the Digital Coax out on the HC-800 and then using some type of cheap converter such as this one: http://a.co/8nr8ZBd to connect from the HC-800 to the 16 ch amp vs just using RCA cables for both the HC-800 and the 16 channel amp. My 16 channel amp is currently only feeding the in-ceiling speakers in 5 rooms and a pair of outdoor speakers in my backyard. For more serious listening I have dedicated AVRs in 3 of the other rooms.
  4. 8-Zone Matrix Amplifier

    I also have one of these 16 channel amps -- currently connected to my Hc-250. If I connect an Hc-800 -in addition to using Shairbridge - given the HC-800 has multiple audio outputs (1 digital and 2 analog?) using just the HC-800 to multiple zones. (For example -- Pandora in some of the rooms, Apple Music vis Shairbridge in other rooms, and AAC files on a USB stick to other rooms?) Also for just streaming music would the quality increase materially if I use the Digital output with some type cheap DAC (don't listen to in house audio through the in-ceiling speakers (low end Klipsch) or just use RCA cables for just the 2 analog connections). Real world case is I would probably ever just use two sources at the same time. Thanks in advance.
  5. HC-250 non-responsive

    Just an update on this --- Comcast turned off Wifi on their X3 gateway and I plugged in my own router. It took a day or two after that -- but is now working great. Haven't had to reboot for that last few weeks. Not sure if there is a direct cause and effect -- but thought I would share my experience...
  6. HC-250 non-responsive

    It went offline this morning and I went to reboot the controller again -- just as I was about the reboot it --but decided to go into Composer HE -- the HC-250 didn't appear there so I refreshed in Composer and it eventually came online -- is it because my HC-250 is overworked. I did notice CPU at about 90-95% but not sure if that is normal. Any ideas? Thanks!
  7. Hi, I have a HC-250 (running director) and 3 HC-300 in 3 separate rooms running 2.8.2. The HC-250 went offline yesterday (couldn't connect to it in Composer HE, couldn't connect via the iPhone app, or via remote controls) I physically rebooted the controller yesterday by unplugging and plugging it back in and everything came back online and was working properly but then it looks like it everything is now unresponsive again. I would hate to have to keep rebooting the controller especially since I did it less than 24 hours ago. The controller is connected to my router via Ethernet -- it's a router provided by Comcast for Xfinity X1 service but perhaps that is causing the issue? Though I never had an issue before and it's the same router. Any ideas on what it could be? Thanks!
  8. Thanks. Yes all the devices have been added already and the OSD is already set -- except that its currently defaulting the HDMI 1 on the TV and I need to change it Component 1 on the TV. Currently when I hit the red Control 4 button on the remote -- I need to grab the TV remote and change the input. Anyway -- I will give what you posted a shot using Composer HE and report back if I did it right.
  9. Thanks. I'm running 2.8.2 and have Composer HE 2.8.2 or Composer Pro 2.5.3 -- can i make this change using Composer Pro 2.5.3 if my system is running 2.8.2
  10. My Yamaha receiver doesn't allow me to pass everything through HDMI if they are connected through component -- ie HC-300. Can I adjust the programming in Composer HE to switch the TV input on the Panasonic Plasma TV to Component 1 from HDMI 1 to display the OSD on my TV? Running 2.8.2 Thanks, Ed
  11. I just found out the dealer I used about 1.5 years ago when I bought the license has gone out of business. I still have the code that I found when I logged into my control4.com account. Can any dealer authenticate and identify my new phone? Will probably have to do the same thing on the iPad as I was thinking about upgrading my iPad as well. Thanks! Ed
  12. I keep getting the unable to authenticate this device with your home automation system and Error: Not waiting to identify a device. I don't need to get a whole new iphone app just because I went from the iphone 4 to the iphone4s do I? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Ed
  13. Hi, I have 2 mini touch screen displays. One of them now just shows a flickering white screen after I tried to reboot it by holding the button down. I have done this multiple times in the past to reboot the system. This time -- holding down the button does nothing. Everything else works fine -- 3 HC 300s and 1 HC-100s plus 16 channel music amp, 500 DVD disc changer, etc. It's just this one mini touch screen has given me the "white screen of death" See attached pic. Is there anything else I can do to troubleshoot? Any help would be appreciated... Thanks, Ed
  14. This solved my previous issue that I posted about (not being able to scan some Amazon mp3s). I deleted the original topic since I got a PM saying the log file that I posted might pose a security issue for my system, etc. Thanks, Ed
