    C4 driver for nVidia Shield

    Unless it was set to to static or given an IP reservation in the router, the Shield has probably pulled a different IP address than what it had when the IrUSB was installed. That would be my first place to look. Eric
  2. Do you have a SnapAV OVRC Pro hub installed on your network?
  3. Okay, right after I posted I decided to try using the Sony AVR to see if its driver has two way communications. It does! Attached is a screenshot of the script I used. Eric
  4. This driver doesn't seem to provide two way communications. I have an HC-250 running 2.10.5. What I'd like to be able to do is monitor the POWER_STATE system variable of the Hopper. I can into the Agents tab, click Variables, and tick the box to show system variables and see that the Dish TV POWER_STATE variable changes between True and False if I use my SR-250 to Watch Dish TV or Room Off. However, if I turn the room off and then use the Dish remote to turn the Hopper back on, it is not sending the change in power state back to Control 4. The reason I want this is so I can leave the SR-250 in the charging cradle when it dies and be able to use the Hopper remote temporarily. I want to use custom programming to monitor the POWER_STATE variable so when it changes to True C4 will set Dish TV as the video device for the room. Does anyone know of an alternate method to achieve this? Thank you, Eric

    I realize the website always has the most recent version on the download page, but there is nowhere that I can find (though I may be overlooking it) that states what the current version is. Is that something you could add to the file description on the download page? That way we'll know whether or not it's worth our time download it again. Thank you, Eric

    22 TV's

    I despise the SmartHub interface and find it clunky and slow to deal with. Some of the older models don't even offer Prime as an app option for streaming which has frustrated some customers who got a smart TV just so they wouldn't have to get a separate streaming box. More importantly though, Sony offers a much easier way to customize the input settings, light sensor settings, etc. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    The company for which I work swears by Sony. I do as well. LG and Samsung (more so LG) have been quite frustrating to work with. The hidden pro menu of the Sony panels where you can export a setup file make for a super easy, consistent install.

    Yes, I know it doesn't use the C4 driver. I actually have this device & free driver myself for my Nvidia shield. I work for a company that does Control 4 installation and am considering recommending this for all our customers that have Fire TVs (some as many as four in a house) on Control 4 to get around their security update that breaks the IP controllability with C4's driver.

    Will this allow a Fire TV to still be IP controlled with the new security update to the Fire TV that breaks IP control with Control 4's driver? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    C4 driver for nVidia Shield

    I've missed something somewhere. I have version 1.9 of the Video Storm driver installed and decided to try using the mini-drivers for direct access to Netflix, Hulu, etc. from the watch menu instead of the colored buttons but can't find them in the search menu anywhere. Do I need to create the mini-drivers? If so, are there instructions on this? I've decided to not pursue Slacker as a custom app as Slacker wants a touch/mouse interface so it doesn't work to well with the remote.

    If you already purchased the IrUSB, the only other charge should be what the dealer will charge to come out and update your system. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    C4 driver for nVidia Shield

    I understand and I'll go to digging deeper through the logcat later today. I was looking at how Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon launch and comparing it to Slacker's sequence and Slacker is the one throwing some different lines in there. It'll just take some more experimentation.

    C4 driver for nVidia Shield

    I wonder if the problem I'm having with it is because I couldn't download it directly from Play but had to put it on a USB drive, find it with ES file explorer, and install it that way. It does not show up in the app row on the home screen; I have to use an app called "TV Launcher" in order to run it. The logcat isn't helping me much. Eric Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    C4 driver for nVidia Shield

    Ok thank you. I had it on to try get the info for Slacker Radio but I didn't have the right cable to connect to my computer. So I just copied the app URL for Netflix and swapped out com.netflix.ninja for com.slacker.radio but it wouldn't work. I wonder if part of the problem is the way I installed it? It's not available directly in the app store for the Shield so I download the apk from December, ran it, but it would not install. Ran it again, and this time clicked the market link where it actually installed and runs fine. I just have no idea of the app URL at this point to assign it to a button.
