    New Sony AndroidTV Questions

    Has anyone had the SDDP address not appear in Composer after the connections were already made? Just had a Sony TV disappear on me and everything is set correctly in Settings. I don't believe that the TV broadcasts an SDDP address unless it's on, so I've ruled that out too. Just made the Simple IP connection and all is well, but I'd prefer SDDP if possible.
  2. I know that I'm in the right hands when you respond to one of my posts. As always, thank you for your help. I'll try to change the toggle setting on the "off" scene again tonight. I tried it last night and it didn't make a difference. I also have a separate button associated with a difference scene, and even though the "off" scene doesn't have a toggle setting either, it works like it should. If adding a scene to the Toggle Scene field doesn't change anything, do you have any other recommendations? Any thoughts on the button color change? I'm not sure if I'm on the right track on that one. Thanks again!
  3. I'm experiencing a similar issue and would appreciate any help. I have a couple of six-button keypads that I'd like to toggle scenes with. For example, when pressing Button 1, I'd like to activate a scene, and when pressing again, deactivate the scene. I have created a scene with all of the lights on, and then used the Create Default button to create a toggle scene with all of the lights off. I took a guess with the connection and associated Button 1 on the keypad with the Toggle Button Link for the scene that I created. When testing everything, the scene for Button 1 activates just fine when pressed, but I can't get it to deactivate or toggle when pressing the button again. I tested the same concept with a separate button and scene with fewer switches involved, and everything works fine. I'm scratching my head a little on this one. Below are some screenshots: Scene with Lights On Scene with Lights Off (Toggle Scene) Connections I don't have a Toggle Scene configured for the "off" scene, but when testing, it didn't change anything. In addition to toggling the scene, I'd like to have the light color of the button change when the scenes are activated/deactivated. I took another guess and tried to configure it as shown below, but I don't know what is considered "On" and "Off" for the button. Assuming that I can get this working, is it possible to replicate the same functionality on a separate keypad that involves the same scenes, or does it throw a wrench in things when the Button Link is associated with more than one button? Any help is appreciated!

    Power Tab in C4 App

    Thanks...I'll look into it. No...I have a friend that's a dealer that lets me access Composer Pro when they aren't using it. I don't like to bug them for endless support and try to figure out things on my own, then come here if I can't figure it out. Thank you for your help!

    Power Tab in C4 App

    I have a family member that also has a C4 system. When they were using their C4 app, I noticed that they had a tab on the top left of their screen that allowed them to choose a few different power options for the room. This might be a simple thing to enable, but I've tried to find it in Composer Pro and can't seem to locate it. Any ideas?

    Mapping Audio from Video Matrix

    Out of curiosity, what do you recommend to do with the two RCA outputs from the HC-800 when two audio matrices are involved? I currently have "Y" connectors coming out of both and into each audio matrix, but I only stream a single Pandora account for now. I'm able to listen to Pandora on all zones on all matrices without any issues, but I'm curious what happens when I add a second account. If I run one connection to each amp, then I'm basically limited to a single streaming service from the HC-800, correct?
  7. Do I have to start with only one of these events? If not, how would I start with something like "When Wii is source for Basement Family Room"?
  8. Thanks, @Matt Lowe. Any chance that you'd be willing to share some tips on the programming? Which event would be a good start to program the rest of the functionality? I see how to start a conditional statement if a certain source is selected, but I don't see how to make that the trigger event.

    Mapping Audio from Video Matrix

    It was simple to fix, but it's interesting how it doesn't like it. I have a Sonos Connect used on the same system and I have it connected to both audio matrices using a "Y" cable. I haven't had any issues using the Sonos on both matrices, but it definitely didn't like it when trying it with the video matrix. Since I have some wiggle room with the video matrix, it isn't an issue. Out of curiosity, how should a device with a single output be handled when I have two audio matrices in the mix?
  10. I'm trying to accomplish something similar, but with a twist. I have a room with a single TV and two in-ceiling speakers that are all connected to Control4. I have a Nintendo Wii plugged directly into the TV. Is there a way to accomplish something like the following while keeping everything as a single room: When Wii is selected as source, only Samsung TV is used for sound. All Volume commands from C4 only go to TV. When anything is the video source, only the in-ceiling speakers are used. Since different audio sources will be used in this room, I can see the need to turn down the TVs volume up and down depending on if the Wii was previously used. Is it possible to take the volume on the TV to zero (not mute since the icon always shows on-screen) when the Wii is selected, or when the TV powers off? Thank you for your help!

    Mapping Audio from Video Matrix

    As an update, Control4 Support looked at the issue. Since I had a single set of RCA ports on the video matrix mapped to different audio matrices, they said it was probably confusing the system. The technician told me that I needed to physically connect and map all eight sets of RCAs to the matrices before it would work, but that seemed like overkill. I only mapped the two sets of RCAs that I need to a single input on each matrix and it works like a champ. Thank you for your help!

    Mapping Audio from Video Matrix

    @Matt Lowe, if you are referring to the physical connections from the video matrix to the audio switch, yes, those have been made. I just went through Composer again and verified that all connections have been set, and I assume that they are correct. Any other ideas? Has anyone programmed this specific video matrix before, or one like it? I'm scratching my head on this one. I feel like something is missing in Composer and I just don't see where.

    Mapping Audio from Video Matrix

    Thank you for your reply. Unless I misunderstand something, the connection from the video matrix to the audio switch is already made. The output of the video matrix is mapped to Input 4 on both of the audio matrices. Is that the wrong mapping, or am I missing something? Both of the audio switches are the Control4 16-zone switches. I currently have splitters so I can send the same audio signal to both switches. I read somewhere about the pros and cons of doing so, but I can't remember what the cons were. Even if the audio was faint, I would still hear something, right? If there is a way for the matrices to share a single input and have both of them know about it, I'd love to hear about it. My understanding is that the matrices run separately, so other than splitting the single sources that I have, I guess I don't know how else I can have sources available to both matrices.
  14. I purchased a C4-LU642D video matrix switch earlier this year. This particular matrix downmixes audio streams so they can be pushed to rooms with stereo configurations. I'm pretty familiar with Composer Pro (9.1), but I can't figure out how to map the audio from the video matrix so I can listen to a video source in a particular room. The configuration is as follows: Fire TV ---> Video Matrix Input 1 Video Matrix RCA Audio Output 1 ---> Audio Matrix Input 4 Audio Endpoint 1 ---> Audio Switch 1 Room Selection 14 Audio Volume 1 ---> Audio Switch 1 Room Selection 14 Video Volume 1 ---> Audio Switch 1 Room Selection 14 Video's Audio Endpoint 1 ---> Audio Switch 1 Room Selection 14 When I choose to watch the Fire TV as the video source, the video signal comes through just fine but the speakers don't play the audio. Below are the snapshots of the current programming that is in place. Does anyone have an idea of what I'm doing wrong? I assume that Output 1 of the video matrix is associated with Input 1 because I can't find anything in Composer that would make me think differently. I even tried to map the stereo output of the Fire TV to an input on the audio matrix, but that didn't do anything, and I assume that shouldn't be needed since the video matrix audio is already mapped. Any help is appreciated! Video Matrix Connections: V Audio Matrix Connections: Room Connections:
