  1. I think I found the problem with my setup. I believe I have tracked it down to a faulty switch, I believe it has something to do with it's ARP table which explains why it couldn't find a DLNA server on the same device. Thanks @neil12011 for your help!
  2. Quick Update: As Neil mentioned we were able to upgrade the DLNA driver to v132, however it is still unable to discover DLNA servers. I tailed the director.log and captured the debug output while kicking off a manual discovery (output captured below). I was hoping to get some additional info but the logs don't tell me much more than what was already being displayed in the LUA output through Composer HE. No changes were made to the existing DLNA servers, and one is on the same switch as my EA1, so discovery of that DLNA server wouldn't even need to traverse Layer-3. https://pastebin.com/raw/kjk872wc
  3. Looks like there might be a newer version (v132) updated on the 21st. http://drivers.control4.com/solr/drivers/browse?q=DLNA&fq=primaryProxy%3A"media_service"&fq=manufacturer%3A"Control4"
  4. I am experiencing a similar problem. Last week my DLNA driver (v130) started refusing to find my DLNA server (Twonky). It started a few days after having been upgraded to 2.10.4 for me. The odd part is that it won't find any DLNA server not just Twonky, as I have a couple running on my network. However, all other Non-C4 devices that support DLNA can find all the servers, so that would lead me to believe that it is something C4 related, rebooting controller etc. didn't seem to have an impact. 10/01/18 17:42:07 : SSDP discovery socket online [string "Lua Code"]:142: attempt to index global 'Devices' (a nil value) 10/01/18 17:42:17 : SSDP discovery socket offline @msgreenf or @neil12011, have you heard of any DLNA issues with 2.10.4?

    Remote Integration services offered

    Put me down for another satisfied customer of Neil’s. Had him do some work for me recently, new remote, director upgrade etc. He had great communication, and great follow through. Recommended!
  6. Hello, I am looking for a new remote integrator, as my previous integrator is no longer performing remote work. Below are some of the various drivers I have installed and use so you have an idea what the system looks like. MyQ IFTTT DLNA Voice Scenes Nest Rachio (House Logix) Kodi Shairbridge Weather Station Advanced Announcements Other minor drivers... I am in need of a new SR-260 remote, my kids have thoroughly destroyed mine. The batteries drain in a matter of hours, it squeals when the backlight turns on, and the display sometimes cycles through colors, it's messed up to say the least. Would a remote integrator be willing to sell/configure a SR-260 remotely? I have Composer HE and am comfortable with technology so I would happily perform any steps locally that the integrator required for setup. I'd also like my system upgraded so I could make use of the new intercom functionality, currently my director is at Thanks in advance for the help anyone is able to provide.

    Video Source Auto-Activating At Midnight

    Thanks for the input @Cyknight and @knowitall, I corrected the issue with the garage doors, that was test that never got removed (#facepalm). I made a schedule for that so it's no longer firing every minute. The keypad dimmer is one side of a three-way light with a phase dimmer on the other side. I checked the programming for all buttons/presses etc. and didn't find any programming that wasn't expected. After looking up the actual variables it makes sense why there are so many in the logs, it is updating the "MINUTES_OFF" variable for the keypad dimmer, and Kodi is updating the "CPU_USAGE" variable. It doesn't look like Composer HE has the detective suite, I suppose its part of the Composer Pro?

    Video Source Auto-Activating At Midnight

    C4 does think the source is active, if I open the app or look at my T3 I see the source (Kodi) in the bottom left-hand corner, even though no actual components are powered on.
  9. Hello C4 Braintrust, I've been looking into an issue from some time and haven't been able to make any progress on my own. What I am experiencing is that one of my rooms is activating a video source (Kodi) every night at midnight. The odd part is that the TV isn't turned on, nor the receiver like it does if manually activated. As a result I have to power the room off before selecting a source in the morning otherwise components won't come on as it thinks they are already started. I want to say it started around the time of the 2.9 or 2.10 upgrade, but it very well could have been something I did unknowingly. I setup a push notification to help track down the moment it happens, and I found the following log snippet which confirmed my suspicions. Unfortunately the director.log is so verbose and rotates so quickly that by the time I wake up it's already been rotated out of existence, gZip or otherwise. https://pastebin.com/PfWAZcRL #<---------Starts at 4 seconds after midnight. I have no schedules that run at midnight, and have scoured Composer HE for errant misconfigurations. I know a workaround could easily be implemented, but I'd like to know the root cause, be it myself, bug, etc. BTW, Is there a way to enumerate all configurations easily? Seems like that would be a useful troubleshooting tool if it doesn't exist already. Any help would be most appreciated. BTW, I am also looking for a new remote integrator as my current remote integrator is no longer performing remote work. Cheers! -Lzk
  10. 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.
  11. 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.”
  12. Everything is working again for me after they applied their patch earlier today.
  13. 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.
