  1. $350 shipped and it's yours
  2. Looking for $400 shipped
  3. Upgraded to an 8 zone so need to get rid of this Testing the waters on here, before it goes to ebay
  4. So what you're really doing is keeping control4 and using a harmony remote instead of SR-250? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Is there a big difference between the drivers lab and blackwire drivers? I didn't even know about BW when I recently got my driver, but not super impressed Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. is that first link I posted kind of like a starter kit? I guess you'll always need some NVR to run them. What other big considerations are there picking the hardware out?
  7. Full disclosure - I don't have much experience with security cameras yet, but I thought I'd share the deal if these integrate well with C4. I know I've heard Amcrest thrown around a lot of here before https://slickdeals.net/f/9877140-amcrest-qcam-8-channel-1080p-nvr-poe-security-system-w-2tb-hard-drive-for-293-free-shipping?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1 https://slickdeals.net/f/9841427-amcrest-prohd-1080p-wi-fi-security-camera-w-two-way-audio-64-90-free-shipping?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1
  8. Thanks, that makes sense. I figured it wasn't really copyright. Kind of frustrating this is a limitation at all on their flagship AVR. I'm ready to upgrade my C4 matrix amp so I don't have to deal with the workarounds, but I'll show my dealer that driver if I keep using the zone2/3.
  9. It sounds like you inherited a solid system even if some things are dated. You really can't do much until you get a controller online and if the installer has the project already that will save you a lot of time instead of starting over. I think you'll get an idea pretty quickly once you get up and running if this type of system is right for you. I have a technical background too and it can be annoying to have a dealer do work for small things you get, but at the end of the day control4 integrates everything together seamlessly so I eventually get over it. Your controller cannot upgrade to the later OS, you can see if the updated features mean much to you or not to upgrade.
  10. Thank you for this insight, very helpful Someone went off on me on another forum telling me to put my new AVR at the very top after I said it was running hot after movies. I have the "mild active cooling" now with two fans on top Does it ever make sense to have matching fans pushing air in the bottom while the top fans pull air out? I was debating on this recently, but don't know if it would do anything
  11. I have zones from my HC800 into a C4 matrix amp and into a yamaha AVR. It sounds like you had the same issue as me. My AVR will not output the HDMI source to zone2/3. Yamaha said it was copyright issues, not sure if thats true or they just can't do it. Still have to have my dealer change it to the coax or analog out in HC800 if I want to use the other zones.
  12. Started using tidal recently, really love it. Still missing some music selection so I might not completely ditch Spotify yet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It outputs the HDMI as PCM audio now, I know the EA's have "HIFI audio" so just trying to make sense of it all
  14. I'm using the zone outs on my AVR and figured out the AVR does not output HDMI sources to the extra zones (trying output my HC800 audio). Yamaha said this was for copyright reasons. So, so i could use the analog audio out and make it work. I'm a little curious of the advantages of the digital coax on the HC800 and the coax in for the C4 matrix amp. It seems like a digital input would improve the AVR sound for something like Tidal, but for the zones running analog not make much difference if any. Can anyone clear up the audio quality coming from the HC800 and the benefit of using the coax
  15. whats the price tag to get it all working?
