  1. Was playing with the new DSC Powerseries Neo after an install. Thought I would have a laugh and this is the announcement of the homes speakers when the alarm is activated. The internal sounder shuts off so you can hear it everywhere! Not keeping it like this in the actual system Balabolka can be fun! AlarmActivated.mp3
  2. Excellent Alan, I'm starting to update clients to the driver soon. I'm still leaving in an unconnected IR driver just to send the Sky command, can't wait to get rid of the IR
  3. The NVR needs special C4 firmware available from HikVision. Says so in the documentation
  4. Brilliant driver Alan, will be rolling it out to customers. One thing: Am I able to send the Sky button command? It is the fastest way out of any menus to main viewing. Couldn't see it in the driver and all my customers use the # key to get back to full screen viewing. Cheers for another great driver.
  5. Ahh, so it actually a son of a peach!
  6. Ahh, some Thursday fun for you: But remember it's very rare!
  7. Getting my post count up, thought that was the whole point of this?
  8. No idea what your talking about
  9. Yes, sharing the OSD invokes a world of pain ... in my book a complete no, even if the client thinks it a good idea
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Isn't that two different tapes? RGBW is an RGB and a White chip combined which saves a lot of hassle. Also IP65 rated or waterproof (non-submerged) 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.
  14. I would like to be able to add notes to Programming. Sometimes I forget why I did something. If we had a notes panel below the Script window that would be great.
  15. - Nothing wrong with the Bluestream matrix - the V2 matrix series is 4K HDCP 2.2, used them on a few projects and had no problems. Very good value for money! - Agree with the EA-1 in the Living Room, nice to have on screen interface in there. - The Home Theater has a SR-260, is it close enough to the Living Room to connect to the EA-1. Not good to rely on an EA-3 in a metal rack for ZigBee connection. - Interestingly I have been hearing rumours that Legrand NuVo are planning Apple Music integration ... but if it's anything Apple that could be a loooooong time. Personally I think NuVo has the best integration with C4 at the moment. I use it and really like it, sounds better than Sonos too (in my opinion, but it is playing through Linn Katans)
  16. Anyone know if it is possible to set shuffle mode on NuVo player with the Legrand driver (Houselogix)? Looked around everywhere and can't seem to set it, playlist always starts sequential. There is the ability to set shuffle and repeat from the Control4 UI, but nothing I can see in programming. Cheers
  17. Thanks Matt, I reckon it just isn't in the driver. I will try and find the IP command and build a mini-driver for it.
