    Altice driver

    Anybody have a driver for this box. I thought I was setting up Optimum box and found a new Altice box on site.
  2. Sometimes I feel like I’m weird. This guy makes me feel normal. Thanks for that. If you want to be a DIY go buy a Dot and some Hue bulbs and have some fun otherwise just shut up already. Some people have way too much time on their hands. Hopefully I’ll be that lucky someday.
  3. I find the sound sound from my sonos connect to be much better than the streams coming out of my EA3. Both devices going into c4 4 channel Matrix amp. I just can’t get the ea3 even with tweaking the EQ to sound as good as the SONOS. I have KEF in ceiling speakers. With amazon echo integration sonos is used almost always in place of C4 audio.

    Multiple Heat Zones

    If there are 50 zones they have a room available for 50 stats like the mechanical room running it all. We did a house with 30 zones and no stats just remote temp sensors and all radiant etc. they stacked them all in a room with a Tekmar Gateway. Using a driver works just fine. There is a lot that goes on with a stat besides firing a relay to call for heat, ac, 2nd stage ac, forced air, geothermal a heat pumps, humidificarion, dehumidification, etc.

    MeanWell LCM-60UDA in Push Mode

    Switches are on/off and dimmers dim and aren’t switches so that’s an odd application. Maybe you could use a dimmer setup as a keypad only (not controlling the load directly). Use some sort of high voltage relay wired to the load that has a trigger trigger input. Using a relay off the controller as that trigger input you might be able to use some programming via a tap and then push and hold on the keypad? It’s just a guess but might be possible. I would call in to support.
  6. As of latest update I haven’t had any remotes fall offline but time will tell
  7. I have about 4-5 models currently in stock. I’d be interested

    Odd HDMI issue?

    I put in a Sony receiver that I could pickup locally. It was setup and working great in about 30 minutes with no issues. Have a nice Integra paperweight now. Thanks for input.
  9. Get an alarm company to install your alarm and then just use alarm.com or Totalconnect to do what you want. Don’t rely on Control4 for security.

    Correct me if I’m wrong but VS doesn’t do 4K

    Odd HDMI issue?

    I called integra and they said that is probably the issue upgrade the receiver or bypass hdmi with a hdmi splitter but the dipshits ran no additional wiring to the tv but a since cat5 for the hdbaset balun or I would do that.

    Odd HDMI issue?

    Switching to regular HDMI input and also trying the unplug procedure didn't work. This is an older Integra 7.9. It worked with the old 720P Sony Plasma. Is it possible the new Sony 4K XBR uses a different HDMI standard or something? The FIOS box works fine but apple TV and Xbox (older models) do not work. I get blue screen. The only thing that has changed in this equation is the TV. Everything else is older equipment (except the cable boxes). I guess a new receiver then. That has to be it? The devices if I bypass the receiver work no problem.
  14. Interesting. So do you have to tell Alexa to play it in another room? How does that command work? I

    Odd HDMI issue?

    I'll give that a shot when I go back out. I have it plugged into HDMI 1 on the Sony. The manual says DVI-HDMI adapter for that input. Maybe that is the culprit. Thank you.
