  1. Wyrestorm MX-0408-PRO (RS-485 question)

    Well if its all the same first of all I would like to have the capability of setting the Matrix to DHCP or Static address of my choice. Also if I sell the device in the future it may be a sticking point for any potential buyer who may want to change this address also. So I think I would prefer to have the Wyrestorm RS232 to RS48 converter & run the Wyrestorm Utility software to do the change.
  2. Wyrestorm MX-0408-PRO (RS-485 question)

    I currently have the Matrix working via IP comms on a Control4 system so no problem there. Problem only arises to be able to change the IP setting on the Matrix. So it looks like I need to convert my Laptops serial RS232 to the Matrix RS485 comms. Then I will probably try to use Virtual XP to run the software as I'm not sure these utility softwares will work on Win7 or beyond. so if you can let me know a cost for this device shipped to UK that would be great.
  3. Card Access Thermostat Driver

    As far as I know the driver for the Card Access equipment is as follows; "temp_tstat.c4i" see file attached, simply add that to your Drivers folder then select via Search on Composer & add to your project. Hope that helps. temp_tstat.c4i
  4. Wyrestorm MX-0408-PRO (RS-485 question)

    I'll message later, just driving right now. Do you have a Wyrestorm 4x8 remote control also?
  5. Wyrestorm MX-0408-PRO (RS-485 question)

    Hi there can you tell me more. Is it a Wyrestorm part?
  6. Wyrestorm MX-0408-PRO (RS-485 question)

    I guess I could, but it is now bugging me that I don't know how to change this setting. So I guess I will try & contact Wyrestorm for their advice, but I hope someone on this very knowledgable forum can maybe help. If I could get access to change the IP address, then I guess I would set it to DHCP then reserve an address via the Router, so if I sell it in future or change Routers then it will always pick up a valid address via DHCP.
  7. Slightly off topic from a straightforward Control4 Question, but here goes. I have a Wyrestorm Video Matrix in my system. It is a Wyrestorm MX-0408-PRO. Current Routers DHCP address range is 192.168.64 to 192.168.1.253 Current static IP address for the Wyrestorm Matrix is 192.168.1.6 However I am changing over Broadband suppliers & they supply a new Router which has a different default IP address range 192.168.0.2 to 254. So I need to be able to change the IP address of the Wyrestorm Matrix. I can see that there are 2 communication connections at the rear of the Wyrestorm. They are as follows; LAN (which is currently connected & working. Hence it is configured in Control4 system as 192.168.1.6 and I can access a basic Web Interface by typing in the current IP address. unfortunately this is just for logging in & Manually switching Output/Input combinations etc, not changing IP addresses. RS-485. This surprised me as i expected to find a 9 pin D-type RS-232 connector at the rear. But no sweat if I knew how to connect something between my laptops RS-232 Serial port & the RS-485 port of the Wyrestorm (which is an RJ45 type socket)? !!!!!!!! HELP !!!!!!! Looking in the online documentation, there is a supplied parts list which I can see includes a RS-232 to RS-485 converter listed? I don't have this as far as i know, but I guess I need to now get one? So does anyone know what the Pinout is for the RJ45 type port marked as RS-485 is? Has anyone experience with using this type of Wyrestorm device and in particular changing the IP address? If I do get connected then I think I have to run a Comms utility called COMCTL.exe. Not sure if I should be able to do this anyway via the existing IP connection that I have. I see some software called NTCTL.exe which is meant for LAN port use I think, but I cannot get to work, when I start the application it just comes up with an Error code. So not sure if its wrong software, physical connections, Windows version or what? Any help much appreciated.

  9. HC-200 Navigator not appearing in Watch items

    Thanks for your help. All is working now, Refresh, Refresh Navigators, Room Off. And you are both correct, not appearing in Watch, simply works from Control4 Button. Thanks again for quick answers.
  10. HELP REQUIRED PLEASE? I have a HC-200 sitting behind my TV controlling the IR for local Amplifier, DVD player etc. However I decided recently to connect up the Component Video Output from the HC-200 to the TV Component Video Input of the TV. If I manually switch the TV to Component AV I can see the navigator being displayed. However I want to actually sometimes navigate around this display using my SR-260 handheld remote. But when I press the Red Control4 button nothing happens??????? So I checked within System Design TAB the "Room Properties" to see if my HC-200 was listed. Sure enough it is listed as an Available Audio Source and an Available Video source. However under Navigator TAB I cannot see it listed? So I thought maybe its a Connections issue or something, but I cannot find how to get it to show under Watch? It has a Connection to the Component Input of the Panasonic TV in the Lounge and it is set as the Lounge On-Screen device? What am I missing????????????????
  11. If this software is upgraded to be upgraded to 2.2 or beyond, is this done by USB stick or online via Composer Pro? Is there a level at which these wall screens & potentially other older equipment will not work? or is it just like the Speakerpoints which work with latest and greatest but just stop updating at ver 2.5.3? Any advice would be most welcome.
