  1. Hi all, i need some suggestions how to best handle watching TV and listening to the music at the same time in the same room... I don't have any specific equipment except TV, it can be whatever is necessary for this to work. Usually we install AVR with the TVs but with that its hard to watch TV and listen to AM/FM or Internet radio at the same time by using C4 controller only. It was easier on older AVRs whose AM/FM tuners didn't have OSD GUI. Now every possible thing on AVRs has GUI which automatically pushes to the TV... With the new Triad One we might go that way. Those 2 extra IR goes a long way... AVR function as HDMI hub would be replaced with TVs own hdmi inputs. And most importantly, how to arrange audio-video endpoints in composer so one device (TV or radio) doesn't turn OFF the other one when powered ON or OFF. Thx
  2. Is 4Site down

    As a C4 dealer and installer im saddened that customers have to suffer and C4 gets bad rep because of individual like your installer. It just shows that business account balance shouldn't be the only prerequisite to get C4 dealership...
  3. Didn't he said 4 motors? 8 channel relay and 4 motors are 2 relays per motor...or?
  4. HTPC Build for Control4

    It all depends on customer needs. Here in Croatia Hulu is unavailable and Netflix is 2 years behind US, content is for crap so we don't need it. If someone needs Android functions we leave Android, for pure media playback Libreelec is enough and way better then Android. If 3D/4K/HDR is requirement that new Oppo player is a sweet deal.
  5. HTPC Build for Control4

    As Cyknight said, stay away from htpc and Windows as such. Get a proper NAS, Synology or Qnap. Get several smaller disks, like 3 or 4TB and build a raid with them. Then get a media player like Nvidia Shield or Minix with Kodi on them. Purchase Kodi driver from Ken (Houselogix), it's system wide driver, as many players with Kodi you have. And on top of that you need a solid network. That's the way we do it for last year or so and it's least troublesome option, it always works. A mention, we use Minix U1 players with Libreelec OS. No Android, just plain Kodi environment.
  6. OS 2.9.1 out

    What do you mean by multiple digital audio feeds? Like severeal streams from ea3 or ea5 at the same time? And what are exactly advanced audio capable devices? I'm seriously asking. Thx sent from G2
  7. OS 2.9.1 out

    Well it's all market dependent. Here no one from our customers uses hi def music files, 44.1 flac is max, 80% mp3's. Tidal doesn't work here, people don't buy hi def music, Sonos amps are max they are willing to pay...crap market... Back on topic, i like 2.9.1 [emoji4] sent from G2
  8. OS 2.9.1 out

    So for wav, mp3, 44.1 flac we can disable advanced audio. Or if only audio use is for multiroom, not dedicated stereo setup. sent from G2
  9. OS 2.9.1 out

    Isn't it 44kHz 16bit? sent from G2
  10. OS 2.9.1 out

    So basically if you don't listen to 96kHz and up music you can disable it...? sent from G2
  11. OS 2.9.1 out

    I really don't think so. Will try switching it on and off and listen for changes...[emoji4] O yea, changing temp for thermostat schedule on T3 and apps now works, very cool indeed. sent from G2
  12. OS 2.9.1 out

    We have few sites with Synology NAS-es [emoji5] from which we pull music to C4 controllers into MyMusic without any delay. From selecting the music to playback it's maybe 3 sec max. We have advanced audio disabled. It's the same on 2.8.2, 2.9 and 2.9.1 now. sent from G2
  13. Hi guys, just a quick one...i have a customer with old wireless thermostat with HC800 on 2.5.2 I would like to update the system but need to know how high can i go with that thermostat? On C4 site there is a document with EOL and for that thermostat there is no indication of last OS to be installed. So it should mean i can get 2.9 but wanted to be sure... Thx
  14. Av reciever choice

    2015/2016/2017 Denon, Marantz, Integra AVRs are IP controllable with C4. Don't need to look for a specific model. And if you want to be sure ask your C4 dealer, you need him to integrate a new avr to the system. sent from my G2
