  1. Thanks, found it
  2. Have got the driver installed and using IP control. All works fine other than it won't power on - I need to power it on manually. Anyone else have the same issue? Have just noticed that when powered off it is not maintaining a network connection, can't ping it so that would be the problem. Not sure how to fix that
  3. I recently had same issue, I didn't realise that my library had not been importing for a number of months - I don't use the C4 movie interface much. Turns out that the server cannot be logged into a plex.tv account. If not logged in the plex update worked and if logged in it wouldn't - same error as you. You know your server is logged out because when you log into plex it warns you that you have an unclaimed server on your network For the moment when I need to update the library I log the plexserver out, update, and then log back in. Had to log in because I was finding that remote access did not work when I was logged out, probably ways to fix that - local access is fine.
  4. One of the few benefits of living outside the US when it comes to home automation then, from our perspective you select it just like Napster / Rhapsody and works directly in c4 no need for sonos. Could try signing up behind a proxy etc and then sees what happens in c4, much like we had to do for rhapsody (which is not available in nz)
  5. Personally I switched to deezer and very happy, gets used more frequently than rhapsody. Integration with c4 works well. You get a month free so just need your dealer to install the agent and good to go.
  6. Under this programming C4 only checks to see whether the timer is running when the keypad button is pressed, which it won't be because its pressed only to start the timer. What you need to do is move the code which is turning the LED off to the timer expired or timer stopped code, presumably in the same code location which is playing the announcement, ie same code will play announcement and turn the LED off Also if you are not changing the color of the LED anywhere else then you don't need to change the colors. In system design set the ON color to lime and the OFF color to red, then in the code you just tell C4 to turn the LED ON or OFF and the color will change automatically, it will follow the system design colors Finally you don't need to start the timing after resetting it, a reset timer command automatically starts the timer from 0
  7. Thanks, fixed - it had defaulted back to 8080 so fixed that and all good.
  8. Got home this week and was told that the C4 remote on KODI was no longer working, and in fact it had not been running for some time. Before I lodge a support ticket to Houselogix through my dealer can someone confirm that they are having no problems under Jarvis 16.1 (I upgraded this a week ago, as an aside I seem to have lost all my KODI defaults for some reason as well but fixed those all back to how they should be) Control4 says that it is connected to the KODI driver, but does not appear to be exchanging any info.

  9. I have the motion sensor (sitting above an internal door so triggers when walk in), for a year or so, and have been very happy, presume will be similar performance to the ceiling sensor
  10. I have a rack unit, I recall that I struggled to get a connection until I decided to allow guest mode without a password and from there no problems, whether you want to do that might depend on how your network is setup although at least you would know you hit a connection I did have to select an option on the synology to allow an empty password
  11. Yes, happily creating macros now. Looking at the manual again maybe what they were trying to say is that you can't edit the name of the macro.
  12. Thank you, have something to do over the holiday break now! This is where I got my info, see point 8. http://www.control4.com/documentation/Composer_HE_User_Guide/Programming_with_the_Macro_Agent.htm
  13. I concur on the power supplies, many years ago I have a ReadyNV which worked fine until I blew two power supplies in quick succession, nothing like walking into your house to a putrid burning smell. At the time switched to an WHSv1 solution, followed by WHS2011 (with drivepool). Earlier this year upgraded to windows10 and that was a mistake as took a lot of tweaking to get it to work for C4 and then for some reason data transfer became very poor - KODI was stuttering on HD steams so threw in the towel and decided to go for a NAS solution. Briefly considered building my own, which would be cheaper and interesting, but decided I wanted an easy life. Like you really wanted a rack mounted unit, but also short depth, which surprisingly constrained choice a lot, so in the end went for a synology RS815. Yes, it seems a little more expensive than a desktop but freed up a lot of rack space for some other toys - it also looks really nice in the rack Intuitively I hated the idea of downgrading to a 32 bit ARM but I've been very happy with the performance, does the job perfectly and serves files faster than my i5 windows based machine. To be fair I also have that windows machine sitting in the rack available for heavy duty work such as EMBY / Plex transcoding etc so a low powered NAS is all I really needed. Would happily buy again.
  14. I was looking at maybe using some macros, but when reading the ComposerHE edition manual its says the following: Note: A unique macro cannot be edited or copied; only created or deleted. If you want to create a new macro based on another one, you must create a new one. So when it says a "unique macros cannot be edited" what does this mean exactly, a literal reading would mean you can't edit a macro once your have done it which makes no sense to me so I must be interpreting this wrong?
