  1. Getting my post count up, thought that was the whole point of this?
  2. No idea what your talking about
  3. Yes, sharing the OSD invokes a world of pain ... in my book a complete no, even if the client thinks it a good idea
  4. I've recently been back to an install and noticed that some of the lighting scenes were not tracking. The system was changed over from AMX to Control4 and the lighting system is iLight (using Extra Veg RS232 driver) For some reason only one room tracks the lighting scenes correctly. The individual circuits in iLight are set up exactly the same way but in room A the scenes track perfectly, but in room B they never activate. There is no difference in the two rooms as far as Advanced Lighting setup or programming. I suspect it is probably the driver but can't be sure, it is pretty old and communication is only 9600 baud. In this situation I have had to program all keypad LED behaviour.
  5. I remember having a problem like this before and it was caused by the lighting system never reporting a light level of 100%. Control4 was expecting feedback from the system saying that a light was on at 100% to match the scene level, but the maximum level in the lighting system programming was 90%. So the 100% level on Control4 was actually 90% on the lighting system. I think I changed the max lighting level on the lighting system to 100% and this seemed to fix it. This was on an iLight system and not Lutron though.
  6. Ah OK, the tapes I have been using are 2700k on warm white. As you say I set them up as RGB full and W full for kitchen stuff.
  7. Isn't that two different tapes? RGBW is an RGB and a White chip combined which saves a lot of hassle. https://www.hiline-lighting.co.uk/gb/led-strips/62-rgbw-led-strip-24v-waterproof-5060440710018.html Also IP65 rated or waterproof (non-submerged) https://www.hiline-lighting.co.uk/gb/led-strips/179-rgbw-led-strip-60-leds-per-meter-5meter-roll-300leds-24v-waterproof-ip67-5060440710971.html For installations that require extra smooth light emission then I use diffusers. If there is anything you need to know about LED strip or controlling them then email the guy that owns HiLine, what he doesn't know about it isn't worth knowing.
