    2017 Thoughts for Control4

    I agree. We are in the era of open source and increasing technical 'savvy'. There is nothing stopping C4 catering to multiple customer groups and varying competencies. If you can become a certified Enterprise Google Cloud Architect online, you can certainly run training courses and certifications for CC Pro online. Besides, if you screw up, its your dealer who will charge you anyway. Reality is using and programming CC Pro is easier than learning to code, and 8 year olds are learning to code right...? Given the amount of functionality being added to HE, I'm guessing C4 know this and are managing the balancing act of keeping their dealers happy and providing more control to end users in a user friendly way. The majority of C4s customer base won't bother, which is fine, but I still think the C4 dealer base needs to more aggressively embrace empowering their customers, not holding onto the keys to their house and charging them $300 to add the TV that just cost them $500. Thats such old, outdated thinking in my opinion.
  2. I folks, I'm running TIDAL (driver v.86) on an HC-800 (small project) and am running into drop outs so much that its basically unusable. Latest driver installed, controlled utilisation never peaks above 2% when streaming and no obvious network issues (ethernet gigabit connection). Local internet connection is 20-50mb/s. No probems using Tidal on other devices so appears to be a C4 issue. Am based in Aus and have tried using Google DNS servers which made no difference. Any thoughts on how to improve? Thanks, Alex.
  3. Hi, I have been attempting to use a Monoprice HDMI extender kit hoping I could connect it using a mono to mono cable as the kit has a mono stereo 3.5 input. However - when activated the ir bud blinks but then stays on - i.e. it doesn't quite work. The kit simply uses the cec channel to send IR signals but I'm not clear why it doesn't work as Id hoped. Any ideas why? It comes with an it receiver and transmitter although neither are externally powered. Anyone played around with this? Trying to avoid running more cable to achieve this if I can. Thanks, Alex
  4. Is on 2.2 (from memory). Can confirm if an issue. In Australia but can ship internationally if required. Let me know! Alex.
  5. Hi all, I'm struggling with setting up motion detection lighting which should be simple. My Card Access motion detector is correctly connected and reporting into Composer. It appears to detect motion (i.e. red light shows when I walk in), however it will not fire any events it seems (in this case active lighting scene). I've tried with another motion sensor so I don't believe it's a hardware issue. Essentially, just as a simple as: when motion detected, activate lighting scene (have tried with just toggling a light). However this does not work. Perhaps I'm missing something obvious - any thoughts appreciated. Thanks, Alex.
  6. I assume Digital Media is not hidden (somehow!) for any of the afflicted zones?

    LTS network cam NEW $90

    Hi - I'd be keen on taking two, although I'd need shipping to Australia if that's doable? Thanks, Alex
  8. Yeah checked that, nothing hidden or obvious from detective suite. Tried removing the room and re-adding all devices which fixed that so you are probably right - some obscure detail! Thanks, Alex
  9. Hmm - no joy, some zones just aren't available to add to (e.g. for Rhapsody) although they all work individually. The two zones like this are both speaker points also that play the sources individually. Also finding that Rhapsody isn't showing for those zones also, something weird is up!!
  10. Static IP within my LAN. I have a 1st gen ipad, iphone 3GS, iphone 4 - all the same intermittent problem.
  11. Hi all, I have a weird problem which is intermittent (although happening at the moment).. I can access both my iTunes collection via the C4 dock and the Extra V driver (latest version) fine via remotes or on screen navigators. When trying to use an iOS to navigate it will not show the detail behind playlists - it just stays there with the wheel spinning. Any ideas - I am on the latest app versions and Navigator 2.2. Annoying as it means the iOS apps can't be used for iTunes 'surfing' at the moment. Thanks, Alex

    C4 Thermostat issue..

    The fuse didn't blow and I did check the voltage - it showed 14vac.. As I say - probably a coincidence but am going to try using a separate transformer just to play it safe! Only other thing is I had the tstat set to control the fan which I suspect should be controlled by the furnace so I'll try with the setting for that. Thanks, Alex

    C4 Thermostat issue..

    Opinion so far is this is most likely a coincidence given it had no problems for over a week. Nonetheless, I'm contemplating using a separate 24vac transformer to power the stat just to be extra sure. Has anyone used this config? Thanks, Alex.
  14. All static, trying a reboot.... Thanks.

    C4 Thermostat issue..

    Well - I ran a common and all was well in the world for a few weeks. Unfortunately one of the control boards on the furnace died. It may be a coincidence but it's possible the C4 thermostat had a part to play. Any opinions? I'd love to have it back in but I'll need to get an idea of whether it was a likely cause of the failure! Alex.
