    Looks like USB debugging had to be turned off!

    Amazon Fire TV Stick - Slow IP control

    Thanks! I have a customer with an Amazon Fire TV (not stick). We installed the dongle to the USB connection on the Amazon Fire TV and the IR USB is not recognizing the device. Is there something I missed. The Videostorm instructions are confusing.
  3. Yep, going with all Rokus for recommended streamers!
  4. Hi all, I had a customer that has the Amazon Fire Stick 4k version. The native control4 driver didn't work at all so had to go with the IRUSB with Control4 coupled with an OTG dual USB dongle. From now on I just tag on an extra $150 to install a fire stick with Control4 set ups, I just can't rely on the native driver and then customers get pissed.

    Doorbird and Control4 intercom anywhere

    Yeah they like the doorbird app, but are excited to keep everything in the Control4 app.
  7. Hello all, The release of intercom anywhere is pretty cool, however I have several clients that have the doorbird front door video doorbell and was wondering if the intercom anywhere would be supported to notify the homeowners remotely on their mobile phones similar to what the ds2 control4 door station does?
  8. Sony recommends getting the pro TV settings enabled which would fix the lock up.
  9. Hi all, I've ran into this twice with a few high end products from Sony that include their TVs and projectors. After trying to integrate the ip control to some of the Bravia / xbr and some 4k projectors, after a while these connections actually disabled the internet. I spent hours trying to troubleshoot and I finally got an answer that there is a bug with the android system that causes an issue and they recommended that I use wifi and or disable Android in the "Pro settings". As for the Sony 4k projectors, if you run into this, they recommended updating the firmware to the latest version via USB and or use the serial control. Hope this helps everyone!
  10. Yea, so after about a week with the adb fix, the control4 lost its connection. Once I rebooted the fire tv it reconnected automatically though..
  11. I really hope this adb thing works. Just did it now, hopefully this thing doesn't disconnect. I have customers everywhere that love their Amazon Fire TV and they call me constantly to re-connect 😕

    Update Controller remotely?

    Reboot the controller?
  14. Hi all, I'm a dealer trying to update some controllers remotely and I'm getting some strange responses. Something about 'Unable to authorize update'. I remember being able to do this in the past but for some reason I can't do it anymore...Any recommendations? Here's the error I get in Composer: Successfully obtained update version information from web service: 1 update version(s) available Unable to authorize update. Connection to the authentication server failed: licenseUrl = https://services.control4.com/Security/v1_0/Licensing.asmx?wsdl, targetVersion =, myVersion =, myCommonName = control4_ea3_000FFF1DD6EA, rc = 403

    HikVision NVR Driver

    I was able to chat with Howard at Blackwire to get the driver to work. It works how I'd like it but I think next time I'm going to go with a PoE switch for the cams and just have generic IP drivers to access cameras on the navigators. Howard was definitely helpful! He sent me to these instructions that didn't really come with the driver originally: https://3olxlp2h4a4u9p5jx4my87ku-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/NVR_DVR_Manfell.pdf
