  1. If it’s Alexa that’s not working I would reboot your controller, then disable the Control4 skill in the Alexa app and then re-enable it. Probably a good idea to let Alexa scan for new “smart home” devices after it’s enabled again too.
  2. Hello, Recently I have been unable to log into the forum with Tapatalk. The same creds work via web browser. The error states “A configuration or server has occurred.”
  3. Everything is working again for me after they applied their patch earlier today.
  4. Yep, been impacted since Tuesday myself. Hoping this upcoming patch takes care of it. If you aren’t signed up for email alerts you can check the status of various services at the URL below. https://status.control4.com/

    iTunes, NAS and Media Scanning

    I recently fought this same battle in the threads below, and I am really happy with how it turned out. I ended up installing Twonky on my Mac and pointing it at my iTunes library. Together with the DLNA driver, and using an Apple script to create the folder.jpg files (all links in threads). It is working great and solved all the problems I had with NAS, iTunes, and Shairbridge. I hope this helps you and your customer.

    I appreciate the info.

    Mono Support For Multi-Channel Amps

    Hello, I am wondering how rooms that are only large enough for a single speaker are handled when powered by a multi-channel amp in a whole-home audio setup using Control4. Does the Controller have the ability to combine audio channels and send a mono source to a matrix amp for that room, or is this sometime that the amp itself would need to support? Any info would be most appreciated. Cheers!

    iTunes driver powering of my receiver

    To close this thread out, I ended up installing Twonky on my iMac. Thus leveraging the DLNA driver which solving all my power issues I had iTunes/ShairBridge, but I can still manage my library via iTunes. Twonky is very feature rich and has search support, iTunes playlist import etc. Given the extra horsepower of the iMac compared to my NAS it performs much better, faster loading album art compared to running DLNA via Synology Media Server. Another useful script for populating folder.jpg files for all your albums if you're managing your library via iTunes. https://dougscripts.com/itunes/scripts/ss.php?sp=savealbumartjpeg

    SMB Share Connection Problems

    Thanks for the offer @msgreenf, my remote integrator took care of it for me. One more quick question though, is multi-room audio still possible with DLNA or is that only possible via direct integration?

    SMB Share Connection Problems

    Let me see about getting the DLNA driver installed and will give it a shot. I was able to setup the DLNA server without difficulty.

    SMB Share Connection Problems

    I have a Synology NAS which is what I'd prefer to use. The share on the Windows 10 computer was an attempt to see if there was something wrong with my NAS share, permissions etc. Are network shares something not recommended for steaming media with Control4? Does everyone just use direct attached, or some other sharing mechanism or protocol?
  13. Hello all, I am having a heck of a time getting my NAS share setup on my controller. So far I have done the following to no avail. Enable SMB (SMB1-3 Enabled) since Control4 doesn’t support NFS. Grant full access to the share with a new user and admin user. Create another test share on Windows 10 computer, w/ SMB1 enabled. Enable access to share with full control for user and for everyone group, including permissions tab. Disabled all firewalls SSH’d into controller and ensured that it could ping NAS and Windows 10 Computer by IP, even added then to /etc/hosts and tried by name. Tried connecting to both shared with and without a WORKGROUP. Both my Mac and my Windows computers can connect to the NAS share fine, and my Mac can also connect fine to the test Windows 10 share. Is there anything I am missing? I enabled debug on the director.log and netusbserver.log, I can see the attempt to connect but neither say say why it failed. Is there another log I should be checking? Thanks in advance for your help. Pastbin Logs, you can see I am using \\X.X.X.X\<share> format to ensure no resolution issues. director.log netusbserver.log

    Triad Power vs. Matrix Amp?

    That makes sense now, thanks for the info @sonic30101!

    Triad Power vs. Matrix Amp?

    I was wondering you'd be able to help me understand the difference between the Triad Power Amp vs the Triad Matrix Amp? On Control4's site the documentation for the Power Amp is restricted, however from the brief summary I can tell they are both for distributed audio. Is there a reason one would be picked over the other for whole home audio? Thanks in advance for your help. https://www.control4.com/solutions/products/amplifiers-and-receivers
