  1. Need faster Fire TV gui / menu control in C4?

    bind the drivers ip and hdmi connections and make sure the device id is in the property tab of the driver.
  2. Need faster Fire TV gui / menu control in C4?

    Ok, I ordered 2 of these and installed one irUSB on 1 of my FireTV's and I do feel that there is enough of a noticeable difference. I'm glad I did it especially if it solves the FireTV's waking up problem. Thanks Videostorm!
  3. Curious, can all the music services and specifically Sirius XM run on an HC800 or is an EA series controller needed?
  4. Noise on intercom from dimmers

    Sonic is probably right. LED's might make it worse...they create their own noise.
  5. More than likely the old box can be removed without any drywall damage, then a new deeper box could be installed. Allied make a plastic box which is almost as deep as a 2x4 stud. http://www.alliedmoulded.com/catalog/residential-products/electrical-boxes/wall-boxes-for-switch-or-receptacle-devices/p-241/ You need a good electrician to do this. They will no how to remove the old box without damage. And yes I agree, the wiremold extension box is a hack fix.
  6. I'm wondering will the 4k encoders work with existing VRX020s or will another decoder be required?
  7. OS 2.10 Features

    I believe you need a ea controller for the new music services
  8. Hello all, I have a quick question regarding Phillips hue light bulbs. I have my exterior garage coach lights on a c4 adaptive phase dimmer wired to a c4 remote dimmer. I would like to install Phillips hue light bulbs in these 4 fixtures and am curious if I can change the light color within a schedule with c4. I understand that when the dimmer is off, then the Hue are probable not connected to wifi, so how will they know that under certain programming situations, to change colors. In summary, I would like to have the light bulbs to change colors on holidays such as Halloween, Christmas, 4th of July, etc. My dealer has no experience with these.
  9. Wireless Security and Control4

    Thanks for the replies!
  10. Our house is not wired for security so I am looking at options to add a wireless system for mostly window and door sensors that can be tied to Control4. I am not looking for monitoring, I would like to monitor it myself. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  11. Yes, I don't need anything with a built in amp. Could I use the Nuvo p300 player? Is there a way for Control4 to control it? Also, would I need the the Nuvo gateway. I can hook the Nuvo p300 player to my network via an ethernet cable.
  12. Thanks for the info, I check into Nuvo p3500 and it is $3000 for their 3 stream player. I don't see that as being cheaper than Autonomic which I can get 2 streams for $2000 and add a single stream player for $1000. Is there another Nuvo piece I should be looking at?
  13. Thanks thegreatheed, I didn't know that was an option. How do you turn on this feature, does it require my installer to come out. I'd like to try it and see if the family likes it if it is easier than what we are doing now. This might solve our problem.
  14. Wow, thanks for all the replies. I'm liking the autonomic solution except I read that it is really expensive. I should of originally posted that we are using Shairbridge now, but I don't like all the steps to get it playing in a zone (maybe I'm doing it wrong). I would really like for my wife and daughter to just go to "listen" and choose spotify or iheart radio from the app and then be able to choose which stations, artists, or playlists to play. I also have the availability to get new wires to areas that I want to use the dot. I was hoping that getting the music services that I want would be easy, but it looks like not everybody plays nice with each other.
  15. Hello, We recently bought a house (2 years old) with Control4 in it. Pretty happy so far with everything, but the we really have no options for music. The house has 12 zones of audio with an audio switch and multiple amps with room to grow. The problem is we currently have no audio sources. My wife listens to iheart radio, my daughter listens to Spotify, I sometimes listen to Pandora, but usually prefer to listen to Amazon music. There will definitely be times where all 3 of us are listening to 3 different sources. I want it easy to use from the Control4 app or touchscreen, but not sure what direction to go. Been reading on this forum for a while and thought I would ask here and get multiple opinions before I call a dealer. I'm looking for more of an all in one solution instead of multiple sources. Also, it would be killer to use a bunch of Amazon Dots in the rooms that I like to listen to music so I can just use voice commands. Is it possible to feed Amazon Dots into my audio switch? Thanks for any replies in advance.
