    Configurable Keypad vs Keypad Dimmer

    The configurable keypad is just that, a keypad. It can not directly control a load. The keypad dimmer is a keypad that can also be directly connected to a load. If you are replacing an existing dumb dimmer or switch that turns a light on and off, you’ll need either a keypad dimmer, an adaptive phase dimmer (no keypad functions) or a a switch (no keypad functions) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Shuffle Apple Music Playlist via Sonos

    Newest sonos driver has a shuffle command. Not in digital media, I do not believe. Not in front of composer, so can’t check. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    “Dolby Audio - DSur” bar

    That is likely coming from your AVR. Grab the remote for that and hit exit or cancel. If it keeps coming back, check settings in the AVR Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Sounds to me like you have a short in the speaker wire for the garage. Could be where it goes into the amp, at the speakers or, if anything was done to the walls/ceiling where the wire runs to the garage, possible a screw or nail was put through the wire. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    dimmer not turning off completely???

    This is why outlets shouldn’t be dimmed. And if they are, then ONLY lighting should be plugged into them. DO NOT plug a heater in - that could be dangerous. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Known issue with a sub component within the wattbox. Half of the outlets fail. You will soon lose all 6 of those outlets permanently. Be sure your dealer brings a new one with him. Snap will issue an RMA, no problem. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Serial Control over HDBaseT

    Just add power offers this (serial over IP) so you can send serial commands to individual receivers with no serial connection between controller and transmitters in the rack Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Composer authentication

    There is a homeowner version of composer your friend (or you) can purchase. It allows pretty everything except adding/deleting devices and making ‘bindings’ which are the connections between devices. It does allow full scheduling, variables and custom programming Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I hate samsung for the one-connect box. Yes, they have removed it from a few models this year, but who knows what stupid thing they’re engineers will dream up next. They don’t seem to care about the channel Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    HDMI switch

    We use the Key Digital S4x1. Works flawlessly. You’ll have to create the IR driver but it is only 6 buttons -on, off, input 1, 2, 3, 4. Does 4K 604:4:4 which Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
