  1. Thanks. I’ve got this running on my tv. What does the interface look like with C4 versus mapping my NAS and create the metadata in C4? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I have a Synology NAS that my dealer mapped to, and I run scans periodically to update MyMusic, and I then correct any cover art if necessary. If I understand, the DLNA, would pull straight from my NAS, such as my iTunes library, and I would see the same as I see in iTunes? Can someone point me to a page with more info on the feature?
  3. I had the same issue last week with my digital services: Napster, TuneIn, MyMusic, etc. Would show as working but no audio. If I switched to my tuner via my C4 amp or streamed to one of the Speakerpoints I got audio. My dealer updated me from. 2.10.4 to 2.10.5 and all worked again. Hopefully for the longterm.

    Control 4 Decisions to Make

    i agree. I'm running HC800 as my primary with a 250 and EA1 on the latest OS.
  5. Whenever I select a digital audio source, the room is turning off. I've tried this in several rooms with the same result. I've tried Napster, My Music and TuneIn. It works when I select the tuner I have a hc 800 and 8 zone amp Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Now that Amazon Unlimited is available in Canada, has anyone being able to get it to work without a workaround?

    I have the 65 C8. Added it to the project the other week using the C4 driver. My dealer set it up remotely the day before and I just followed the C4 instructions for the TV set up. Had no issues Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Alexa volume control

    I'm getting the same error message when I right click on info. Is there another way to check that it was updated?
  10. I'm interested to know how you got around it for Amazon? I have a US Amazon account but my Prime account is in Canada
  11. HI, I'm looking for an easier way to program my email notifications in HE. Right now, I have a line for each possible alarm event with an action. This includes the contacts and subject line. I've recently changed my cell provider and I'm forced to update each line. Can this be done differently? I've added one line below as an example

    Concur with remote programming. There’s some great people on the forum, and you can read the feedback and kudos and know their reputation. Unlike the local shop. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Home - looking for advice

    I started off the same way as you. I bought new for audio distribution (11 zones)with at the time a Hc300, HC1000, speaker points and C4 amp. I added to the project over a couple of years with used HC200's and a mix of new and used switches (which by the way are more expensive today than 5 years ago), about 27. As I expanded, I replaced the 1000 with a HC800, and the 200's with a new EA1 and a used HC250 ($80 on eBay). This approach has allowed me to keep up with the latest OS, and manage my budget while I upgrade. The only challenge has been the speaker points. They don't allow to update the audio. I didn't do distributed video: I only have 3 TV's. I got rid of a screen, as I use iPad and phones. May not be the best but it works for me. Biggest lesson I learned, find a good dealer (most likely on this forum), support him by not buying everything used, get a good network set up with potential for expansion (extra drops), get HE, and follow this forum: there's some amazing people and recommendations here Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks. I’ll ask my dealer to add Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
