  1. 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

    Did you ever figure out what all you have? Interested in a few. Also looking for 3-button caps
  3. Can someone point me to the ROKU IP driver? All I see is the IR......of course.
  4. That's exactly what I figured. New old stock laying around. Trying to save a dime is now costing me time. Now for a follow-up question I should know the answer to, but I don't seem to make things harder than they need to be. What's my easiest route to update this switch? New project 2.2 thru 2.8 with a HC-200? update switch then normally add to existing project? Same project 2.10.4 and add HC-200 update switch and then remove HC-200? Will an IOX-E-B update the switch in a 2.10.4 project?
  5. I fear I already know the answer, but I just want to make sure. I've added an older used switch I had to a small project running 2.10.4 on an HC-250. The switch is for (4) outdoor flood lights. The switch is boots and blue led on top button when "on", blue on bottom when "off". I did 13-4-13 to leave the mesh and nothing happens. That's when I got nervous. I did a 9-9-9 and it reset and showed orange. Tried a 13-4-13 again and nothing happened. Then for giggles I did a 5-5-5 and the switch reset. It will not identify. I fear I've got an embernet switch here and I've got to update it to pro. Am I overthinking this? Am I wrong?

    Whats your favorite AVR

    I have the Yamaha 3010 - absolutely thrilled with it. PERFECT for my needs
  7. What EXACTLY is Control4 media scan looking at to get it's info when scanning the folder/file? The mp4 file for tag info? A specific file in the folder? I have an HP Micro Server with WHS 2011 and two 4tb drives strictly for movies. I have all my DVD's ripped to mp4 & mkv. A very few are ISO's (I'm using Vidcoder to change them to mp4's) Each movie has it's own folder and each folder contains 10-12 files with media data (*.nfo, *.xml, *.jpg, etc....) I've used MetaX (nice little program by the way) to edit the tag data for the video file. I've used Servio's metadata lookup to write files into the folders containing info. I've used My Movie's with all options for every type of media player to write even more files into the folders. Control4 only picks up about 1/10th of my movies.....why? What am I missing? Besides spending hours and hours duplicating all my efforts within Control4 media lookup with horrible "Gracenote" or am I just plain FORCED to buy the EV driver for MyMovies??

    I used Vidcoder (handbrake offshoot) and converted all my ISO's to mp4 - never looked back. I don't need the DVD structure and it takes 1/4 the space without sacrificing so much quality that I could notice the difference. I played with the quality settings until I got exactly what I was looking for.

    wiring diagram for switches

    3 way wiring question in 5,4,3,2,1.......BEEN THERE! Good luck, easy stuff when you do it a few times. Having no background in wiring or electrical, it takes a minute to understand. Once you do - you will wire in every switch in the house! I kept my old switches and faceplates in a box just in case we ever decided to move.
