    WTB -HC800 Power Supply

    Found one on fleabay….thanks anyways
  2. In need of an HC-800 power supply if you happen to have one you are not using and would sell, or an alternative. I've got a few 19V power supplies but all have wrong connector and I'm just not excited about splicing the correct connector in.

    Ok now the direct approach

    Wappinghigh…..that logic simply doesn't work. There HAS to be a singular standard and point accountability to the platform. A cyber attack? For real? For god sake, I've never even heard of any C4 user/dealer even remotely being attacked thru the system. Is it possible? I'm sure it is, but why waste your time? C4 has built, produced, programmed, marketed, trained, etc......this is C4's platform to keep up with firmware and I for one am appreciative I don't have to spend the time, resources or MONEY to keep up with it. You wanna raise sand - try yelling this update to firmware nonsense at Apple. Take a stab at Microsoft. You are probably on Facebook and not even pissed your info was sold / compromised there- talk about a cyber attack. You cannot even go to Target and buy a freaking t-Shirt and a can of Pringles without having your personal data exposed to the entire world. And you take the time to rant paragraphs about not being able to "secure" your C4? Doesn't make any sense at all. Why don't you go raise your concerns with your car "dealer" while you are at it. Their firmware updates are NEVER released to the general public. Then go ask why a dealership auto technician makes in excess of $30 per hour to start. Take a close look at a Dodge hacks....that'll scare ya. My point is - there are a bunch more things in our world that are WAY more important than being upset that C4 isn't "firmware" broadcasting/sharing. I rarely respond to nonsense like this, but seems to me you find the most obscure things to rant about.

    Is the C4-8AMP1-B capable of "signal sensing" on the audio inputs? I cannot find any documents defining how I can program with it - although I've read it's capable.
  5. I really thought the C4AMP had "audio sensing" built in.....that would've solved my problem I think.
  6. Thank you for replying and that seems like it's gonna solve one of my issues but create another. I'm after this kind of use - to be able to stream music from C4 App OR use the Sonos App both with equal results on volume control. My kids don't really use the Control4 app BUT they use the hell out of the Sonos app. I guess I'm trying to figure out if the C4AMP will sense audio on Zone1 input from the Connect and automatically turn on the connected Room. If controlling that room from the Sonos app then I'd have to have volume control in the Sonos app and not fixed. I did find this searching the forum but I'm unsure it would work. Under the Sonos Connect on the programming tab, expand the 'device variables' and click on the PLAYING variable When PLAYING changes ? if PLAYING status is true (under Sonos variable conditionals) - Select the sonos device as the audio device for the room (selected by clicking on the room name)
  7. I have something similar to use (heck I think it's even a Russound) but I don't see where this will solve my issue. Does the C4AMP actually "sense" audio on input zone 1 AND output audio to output 1 by itself in the scenario of using Sonos App? The Sonos Connect is NOT the ConnectAMP…...just the Connect
  8. Need a little help figuring out how to accomplish something. I'd like to be able to use the C4 App AND the Sonos App to control some Patio Speakers (not at the same time). I have: C4AMP1-B (RCA for now) Zone 1 input<------------>Audio Output (RCA) Sonos Connect. Here's what I cant get right: Using Control4 App - No audio with volume below about 35%. Sonos App - Volume 100% on the Connect. Is there a way to have the Sonos Connect output max volume as a default while using C4 App? Why no volume below 35%? Using Sonos App - no volume control at all. Can't find any "Audio Sensing" in AMP programming, maybe I'm going about this wrong.
  9. Exactly the problem......working perfectly now
  10. I'm sure its simple - but I'm confused. One of those "can't see the field for the trees" issue. Here's the setup: Samsung 55" - unable to control via IP as it's older (IR over EA-1) Sonos BEAM connected via HDMI (ARC) Roku HDMI and powered by USB from Samsung EA-1 via HDMI (in a project where HC250 is main controller) I've screwed things up so much I just need to start all over with connections and endpoints. Not sure if the beam is my problem. Roku turns TV on and off and can control Sonos Beam volume via Roku remote. Sonos Beam shows in other Navigators and functions for music flawlessly. Here's my problem: EA-1 isn't displaying navigator on HDMI input when using SR250 If I make TV the video endpoint I lose control of the audio to the Sonos Beam If I make Sonos Beam endpoint for videos audio - I lose control via Roku remote TV isn't showing in other navigators so Roku Channels not showing in navigators currently I know its all in the endpoints - how would you handle?
  11. I'll take the switches if they are still available
  12. They are there...….https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B076659PJ1/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Don't report them for selling please......
  13. I use the NYCE ones - specifically the door hinge sensor. Works great and can be found on Amazon - make sure you get the C4 specific ones!
  14. Been a long time since I updated like that. For those who need the info - I used a HC-200 (in a standalone project), Image updater (installed 2.53) and upgraded switch to pro. I'll keep this controller handy and I know at some point this will come up again
