  1. I tried adding it to my EA5 audio in and not getting any audio with that at all.... time to call dealer and let him figure it out!
  2. Tried a different driver and same thing... I turn off zone, ask Alexa to tell me about something, LISTEN to Alexa, and still get just a few seconds of audio only. I suppose I could experiment on another one of my controllers and see if the same thing happens on those as well.
  3. It's almost as if the Amazon Echo Dot (with stock driver I assume) plays only short clips. Should I enter the Dot as some other generic device to get better streaming?
  4. Just plugged in my IPOD via the stereo jack (I only have one RCA running in as I don't have a splitter for the 3.5mm jack yet only a single 3.5mm) and it starts playing audio and then drops.
  5. Also, with the new update, I'm not sure if it's the update or Alexa getting worse but now when I say, "Alexa turn on playlist weightlifting" (this used to play a list of songs in 3 rooms) Alexa now starts playing some random list of 80s songs on it's own speaker output. It seems the voice recognition and triggering voice commands via C4 Voice Scene driver is getting worse. I would expect Alexa commands by voice to be triggered EXACTLY as stated. When I say , Alexa turn on Satellite Elvis Radio, it should trigger the programmed event for that, not say "I wasn't able to understand the question I heard". This command too is a change recently and I'm not sure if it's Alexa or C4 issue with Voice Scene Driver
  6. Update... just got it playing again but only for a few moments. I ask Alexa, play We Will Rock You By Queen, then ask weather forecast, everything is playing, goes back to We Will Rock You, audio drops, then I ask for weather forecast again and still no audio. If I turn off the zone, I can start audio again... "Alexa, tell me about the superbowl."..... Alexa:"Superbowl 51 will be played on ....." audio out...
  7. I just connected one of my dots into my HC300 based in my kitchen (system controller is an EA5, the HC300 is used basically to control TV in kitchen and runs a relay out to garage door) via the stereo audio inputs. It is listed in navigator as Amazon Echo Dot using the stock driver apparently for this. I have all the bindings apparently correct but cannot seem to get the audio to trigger correctly. It literally did it one time and one time only then hasn't done so since. I've seen some of the postings regarding audio into the C4 amp where the sensing audio triggers the zone to turn on. However, this should be a simple audio in/audio out to room I would think....
  8. I continue to have issues with the voice recognition and previously working commands seem to need changing I assume based on Alexa updates in their system. I used to be able to say TURN ON SATELLITE ELVIS (for Sirius) and now that is not a question she understands so I changed to TURN ON SATELLITE GRACELAND and it works just fine. What 3rd party driver would help with this voice recognition for performing programmed events the best? (at lunch I tried another command that had previously worked well with voice and the too now doesn't work... not sure what's going with Alexa's system but obviously some words or phrases must be altered so they no longer trigger events.
  9. I just switched cell phone carriers and have found a major flaw in Composer.... In order to continue to use email alerts, you cannot just change the Email Notification to your new number. You also have to go into each and every programming step in PROGRAMMING and update that change. It is NOT an automatic change to the programming action which I believe is a programming oversight by Control4 that needs to be changed. It took me over an hour to change each and every event to reflect the new phone number! Has anyone also experienced this issue?
  10. I've treid with and without SSL. Also turned off all firewalls.... Again, it works perfectly on my desktop running identical Windows 7
  11. I'll likely be installing the bulbs within the next week once I decide which bulb to go with. I'm leaning to the Philips Hue line based on reviews. I'll keep you posted on progress and then likely need some help with the interfacing.
  12. Where is the RGB experience button located? Is that on any touchscreen or PC interface (ie MyHome)?
  13. The other brand I've found is the Sylvania equivalent.... Anyone have experience with C4 integration with these? I like the idea of the can and bulb already built together as it would save quite a bit of money in the purchase not having to purchased both the fixture and the bulb. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0196M601A/ref=abs_brd_tag_dp?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
