  1. Give the coax a try. If spliced properly it wont hurt anything. Used it in a pinch, definitely not prefered but if it works it better than buying a zigbee to ir wjej not needed
  2. Sorry, i am running 2.9 on a HC800 and wanted to play around with the IR input of a HC300 i have laying around but the KB article mentions only OS versions 2.2 and below so I wanted confirmation on whether it will even work because so far I cant get it to respond at all since it still shows up in the programing section of 2.9
  3. Anyone tried this lately? On KB it seems vague that after OS2.2 it is no longer supported, just wanted confirmation
  4. might want to also do a conditional of if video source selected turn tv back on in case you switch sources while room is still on
  5. double clicking on the scheduled event in the middle when in the agents tab lets you edit the schedule and rename. Dont think macros, timers and variables can be renamed
  6. I recently set up a Harmony Elite for my in-laws for their family room + zone2 outdoor deck speakers as well as tied in google home and smartthings. One things that the harmony app has that really impressed me was it has a small banner on the home screen that is super convenient. When the system is off you have the ability to activate the first 3 activities quickly without having to open the app, as well as the last activity that was ran you have mute toggle, vol+ and vol- all without having to open the app itself. This is based on which hub you are connected to for "Room Selection" but the Control4 MyHome app could just let you choose a default for these or remember the last room selected If i get bored if someone has the 3rd party IR codes I wouldnt mind snagging a hub for myself, and using the IR input of my HC300 to trigger the activities and volume for just my family room
  7. Since Apple watch users have an interface, it would be nice if there was one for android wear users. Granted once the update comes out the google assistant service will be available so there is future integration that way
  8. Sounds like he is probably overcharging for the speaker install but is definitely undercharging for the programing by at least 3 hours depending on expectations including training/comissioning. A wash is a wash
  9. I have been using it for a while with no issues. Tried doing it via IP but the LanMote app you install on the shield seems to have an issue either with the shield when rooted or with marshmallow so i gave up ip control
  10. Matrix amp is your answer to do source selection and volume for the 8 zones. What other sources are you plugging into inputs 5-8?
  11. On the bottom where the sticker with the serial it will either say hc-800-bl or hc-800-bl-1. The -1 units were produced after the licenses were included into the controllers since you cant purchase the licences separately anymore. Did you purchase the licenses when you got your 800 by chance? If so i believe they are tied to your my.control4 account so you may be able to get a non -1 and when you get the replacement registered the myhome app and intercom will work if you have the appropriate licenses, which will be cheaper
  12. Ok, I got turned around. Thought you were talking about an AVR receiver not a stereo receiver so I was confused why a manufacturer would build that into a surround sound receiver.
  13. Yeah i havent seen bus terminals on a current AVR before like old stereo receivers. They make them new with those? Seems very counter productive for 99% of applications.
  14. Gotcha, I havent ran into that before. Only worked with a small handfull of Marantz receivers and that was back in 2012ish
