  1. Swapping out legacy dimmers for APD dimmers

    Don't delete the old dimmers, copy and paste the programming to the new ones then rename/remove the old ones. Otherwise I am not sire of anything that makes if a less painless process
  2. Xfinity XG1v4-A

    probably the xfinity x1v2
  3. c4-amp108

    A bit weak if you want to jam out. I have one of the 8 zone matrix amps which is 120 at 8ohms per channel and it sounds good
  4. HC-800 Digital Coax

  5. Even if PCM is set on the audio out in the menu? I didn't catch that it was a Sony because I was answering the first section of the post and didn't scroll down to the back story part of his setup. Most I have ran into have both toslink and analog out so a converter may not be needed at all and just ballon that into the analog input of the connect amp and set it to Auto on when signal is present
  6. Looking for suggestions to fill holes

    The guy also gives the 3d printer plans away for free https://www.etsy.com/listing/562906270/google-home-mini-recessed-wallceiling?gpla=1&gao=1&utm_campaign=shopping_us_Yelt_sfc_osa&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=google&utm_custom1=0&utm_content=16521887&gclid=Cj0KCQiAiKrUBRD6ARIsADS2OLm1C9T7xkxKc5M_BuAUUf76KO6zPSaIRy69KzVM4GpJ57FTAMDuzR8aAq1aEALw_wcB
  7. Looking for suggestions to fill holes

    The keypads are in the wall not the ceiling and extending them or intercepting them may not be an option
  8. OP do you have a sonos sound bar in that room or are you using a connect amp for speakers? Not sure if Dolby is even a concern so just convert toslink to stereo and balun it back to the rack over cat6. If you already have the tv out into a sonos device can't you not select that in your other sonos zones using their app?
  9. Agreed you may not need a controller in every video Zone but one single controller in a house that size is not going to cut it 4 range on handheld remotes. Plus sr2 60s are pretty cheap compared to a URC remote
  10. C4-16AMP3-B Question

    it can work if you press the override button on the back but it will be left on at all times as there is no 12v trigger and the i believe the only way to turn them on and off is over the crestnet buss which you wont be doing from c4. So though possible definitely not ideal
  11. C4-16AMP3-B Question

    In most cases that is enough but it depends on the you plan on using and your overall expectations
  12. Trust Doorbell

    You are probably better off using a zigbee doorbell button or a supported video doorbell then doing an announcement through your speakers that are part of the control4 system
  13. C4-16AMP3-B Question

    Using an audio matrix and locking a control4 matrix amp will give you more wattage if that is what you are after since they are beefier. I have also used audiocontrol multi channel amps which are large, and give off some heat but do have some good power behind them.
  14. C4-16AMP3-B Question

    It is 50w at 8ohms on the episode amp which is likely the resistance you will be running. The advertised 70w at 4ohms is a bit of a marketing ploy to draw people in.
