    Do you mean in the rack? So it is 12m away (almost 40ft). If it is in the rack, then it is in a faraday cage and needs to be relocated. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Not to beat a dead horse, but not sure how "It does work for the most part. But there are idiosyncrasies you may run into." makes it sounds like a 'dead' driver.

    What you say is correct, but my understanding is that if you are having issues with it, support will not help, as the 4 and 4K are not supported. All of the c4 empoyees on the c4 programmers facebook group say the IP driver isn't supported for the newer apple TVs, everytime it comes up. And they all recommend Jesse's IR driver. So while the IP driver works for now, use at your own risk. I for one do not want to have dozens or more installs with an unsupported driver in them that could be broken at any time.

    Sonos Connect and C4AMP1-B

    It does have audio sensing built it. You can program a conditional such as When Audio is sensed on input 1, set Sonos as the audio source on the patio (this only works if Sonos is ALWAYS played on the patio. If you are also playing that sonos in other rooms, it won't work) however, that doesn't solve your volume control issue. (NOTE: I was going to go really complicated with a 2 room solution, then thought of the below) You best way to do this, I think, is to have the Sonos always control the volume. If you set the Audio volume endpoint for the room as the sonos. The Control4 amp will then just be at constant power and you attenuate volume through the sonos player - either with the sonos app or the control4 app. Oh yeah, and then use either audio sensing from the AMP to turn on the zone, or use the properties in the Sonos driver to auto power the patio whenever sonos turns on (this will monitor the sonos device, so it won't matter whether sonos started from the c4 app or the sonos app)

    It does work for the most part. But there are idiosyncrasies you may run into. Like the Anon2828 did.

    Or use Jesse smiths IR driver (see Facebook group). IP driver is not supported by control4 for appleTV 4 or 4K Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If you are a dealer, reach out to Jesse smith on the Facebook group. He has a great Rs232 driver Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Lighting Control & Design Question

    Do NOT put all of the hidden dimmers in one place or you will have a zigbee nightmare. It is solvable, but NOT recommended or supported. Space them out in areas local to each room, but hidden away Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Many avrs allow you to select a video source to play while on an audio input. I do this all the time at home and for clients. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Turn off the TV if no source is selected

    Didn’t catch that you had put that conditional in there. I like that - makes it cleaner with one less programming step. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Turn off the TV if no source is selected

    moved from sonos to triad 8x8, now regretting, plz help

    100% agree. Spotify connect isn’t much different than the sonos drivers. Use a different music service is the best recommendation. Or use multiple instances of the driver if you just can’t give up Spotify Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
