    Amazon Echo Driver!

    Is there any way that I can use alexa driver with 2.5.3 ? Thanks,
  5. Correct, the USB restore/install does not work, if that the case (it got loaded with a wrong factory firmware), is there anyway I can make it run 2.5.3? Thanks,
  6. Hi everyone, I'm trying to hardreset hc-800 by holding the button till the wifi flash, but it's not going back to 2.5.3 (as the little yellow sticker states factory reset will put the system to 2.5.3), but it's still 2.6. Any idea? Thanks,

    Router Recommendation

    netgear r6300 with dd-wrt. I can remotely turn on/off and remote desktop with any computer with WOL in the house. not sure if others router can do that.

    An alternative to Kaleidescape ?

    dune + NAS(synology) + mymovies I map windows network drive to NAS and rip directly to the mapped network drive. 20-30 mins per Bluray/DVD RIP, mymovies create synopsis almost instant after dvd/bluray is ripped.
  10. Hi, I'm currently running hc1000, and would like to buy hc250 to get the licensing, question is that can I transfer the license to my hc1000? Thanks,

    Warranty on HC800

    IMO, just grab a used hc300/200 on ebay, cheaper than paying full price on hc800 or having it fixed.

I'm a Control4 user and obviously fall within their target market w.r.t. income, home value, etc. However after 4 years with it, although useful, it's a real pain to keep up-to-date in the face of new technologies, devices to add/update, etc. Their only distribution is through dealer-installers and there's no after-market like for cars. There's no way to make any changes/updates without the dealers, who're not exactly reliable or responsive. Contrast that against what Nest or Apple does - make it trivially easy for idiots like me to add/change things using auto-discovering devices...voila, history, Control4! I'll pay a couple thousand to dump them because my (3rd to-date) dealer charges $200 for the privilege of visiting to add a device/update in 15 mts!!! Control4's sadly going to be capped by being beholden to their "dealers" and not their consumers. Bad strategy in today's tech world.

In four years I have had numerous upgrades major component change outs. Went to a quarterly home visit to negate problems before they happen (never understood this but price is $1,640 per visit) And I now listen to a portable radio for that is the only music I can get. Over 600,000 spent all in the name of a smart house that I turn the lights off by hand. Oh well I have learned a good lesson. http://www.bbb.org/utah/business-reviews/automation-systems-and-equipment/control4-corporation-in-draper-ut-22218362/complaints http://www.yelp.com/biz/control-4-draper
