  1. Hello. Looking for someone with control4 access who can help me add a few updates devices and tidy up some system stuff. Needs remote access which I don’t have. Prefer to pay someone who can do remotely rather than $$$$ to ask my dealer who cannot seem to work it out. Please dm me. Thanks!

    IP Control Tv

    With all the new TVs on the market, I am still looking for a 32 inch TV with IP control as our old Sony 2015 model has dreadful IR control. When I checked before I could not find a smaller IP enabled TV but interested if anyone has since had success. Many thanks!

    Spotify Connect in 2.10

    Hi. Coming back on the Spotify drivers and apologies if this answered elsewhere. Can anyone clarify if there is a way to increase the Spotify sound quality (in Kbps) in the same way you can in the app. I looked in the driver to see if I could increase the quality to High as we have fast internet. But could not see. Many thanks in advance
  4. Hello strange one. Some of our c4 iPhone apps work fine showing all the options to show tv (watch) and have the icon at bottom right to show what other zones are doing. But a few of our phones link to the system but don’t show the watch icon, nor can they control the lights etc. Is there a limit to devices, do I need to refresh anything? example from two phones on the same network and system Thanks for your help!

    IP Control Tv

    OK great thanks. this is for a kitchen TV so need 32inch and unfortunately the Sony doesn't seem to be Android at that size. Any other brands that are IP friendly? thanks for this
  6. Hello I have been struggling with a 2015 model Sony and now 2016 model Samsung TV which cannot master IP control. Unable to switch on from control4. Would anyone be able to recommend a brand / model which works flawlessly? I know IR control can switch on but will not work seamlessly. many thanks
  7. Hello i have a Sony vw520es projector. When installed my dealer could not get up control to work fully, as the power-on command did not wake up the projector. The install instead used an IR bud but this often got out of sync (and has now stopped working entirely). I would like to sort out the up control properly and my dealer cannot seem to help. Reading online there appear to be other drivers, and chowmain have a pjtalk driver. Has anyone found a way round the Sony projector ‘wake on’ problem and would pjtalk (or another driver ) help! i am unable to download the chowmain driver as I cannot seem to get it without a dealer code to test. Many advice really appreciated!

    Fantastic - does anyone know how to switch this on? Do you need a firmware upgrade?

    Easy Alexa ?

    Hello I do not have ComposerHE or any fancy Alexa drivers - so therefore a more basic setup than some of the other users in this forum. But I feel constrained! I have Alexa working (though for c4 only really works for lights scenes, and a few old dealer programmed c4 routines), and have used WhenThen (ok but too limited to be really useful - cannot change volume level on amps or choose streaming playlists for example). Also the routines I set up in when then don’t link through to Alexa (presumably only those scenes set up by dealer in the c4 system make it through). Anyway - I have read lots of posts and can see that to get what I want to do may need complex programming. But just in case..... - Alexa routines look great. But how do I get Alexa to ‘see’more of my C4 system to programme’. Now I can see (a) all lights, (b) light scenes (c) room volume and (d) the very few old scenes my dealer did in install (eg switch on Netflix in cinema). I cannot add or change this list. Is there any way at all to add devices or to programme new ‘groups’ so that for example I could - set volume in three zones to 50, change lights AND play a specific artist on Spotify THROUGH my C4 system not Echo? Or Turn TV to a certain channel? - does all this need me to be in the programming of C4. Ok if needed but what is the easiest way? Thanks!

    When } Then to trigger music

    Many thanks for your insight on deezer versus tidal. I looks like this just won’t work. Is anyone else using when-then and do you have any help with the other apparent shortcomings I recognize HE could do all of this but I would love to use this simple approach (and I am sure most customers will suffer from these obvious flaws) : When Then can trigger certain music in a zone - but cannot set the volume. So depending on the state of the zone it could be silent or too noisy. What would be wrong with adding a 'set room to 25% volume?' There are no groupings. If you want certain music or announcements to come through more than one room, you have to do each room individually. To make it worse this requires separate audio outputs from the controller (capped at three really in mine) Why not let the [when then] have the ability to creates 'scenes' that can then be triggered by alexa? So set up certain TV channel in a certain room etc?
  11. Hello i need to replace some of the engraved key pads on my control4 light switches. Normal style, and I am here in the UK. See picture where some of the letters have broken off. I am not particularly keen to reorder at great expense through my dealer Would anyone know (a) given these are normal decora size, are you able to use generic engraved key pads, and if so (b) has anyone used them with success? thanks!

    When } Then to trigger music

    Another question on When/Then: It looks to me that the ability to control things is 'too limited. I recognise that C4 dont want this to take business away from the dealers.... but.... When Then can trigger certain music in a zone - but cannot set the volume. So depending on the state of the zone it could be silent or too noisy. What would be wrong with adding a 'set room to 25% volume?' There are no groupings. If you want certain music or announcements to come through more than one room, you have to do each room individually. To make it worse this requires separate audio outputs from the controller (capped at three really in mine) Why not let the [when then] have the ability to creates 'scenes' that can then be triggered by alexa? So set up certain TV channel in a certain room etc? and note that the system can only pick up music stored as a playlist - Tidal for example cannot be accessed. is anyone else using When / Then? thanks

    When } Then to trigger music

    Derrick thanks. Let me know what they say. I only use streaming through tidal. It makes no sense for C4 to allow pandora and not tidal? has anyone else in the forum had success programming music triggers through When-Then? Appreciate any insight thanks
  14. Hello, I am experimenting with When-Then to trigger more functionality when i click certain buttons. I had hoped to be able to "double click" a button to start certain music playing. When i go to the WhenThen setup the only choice i have is to trigger a radio station (AM, FM or digital). The selection i get is just my "stations". What would i need to do to start a Tidal Playlist for example? Note i do not have HE. Do i need to get that to set up more extensive audio / scene programming. many thanks

    Doorbell

    Hello. Coming back on this topic, we now have the amps permanently on so the delay is more limited for the doorbell. However the announcement agent is set to turn on certain zones to 70% volume for the doorbell then revert back to the previous volume level when complete. If the zone is currently in use, this seems to work fine. However- if the zone is not in use the volume remains at 70, which means that when you subsequently switch on music it comes blasting out. Is there a c4 function to move zones back to a default value after announcement to avoid this? Thanks I
