  1. I’ve never owned an iPhone, only Android, but shortly after having my C4 system installed, I went and bought an iPad specifically to use the Airplay to play to my Shairbridge. Unfortunately, Android doesn’t work with Shairbridge like Apple products do. I have a few Alexa devices in my house, and I would love to have it setup the way you did this. You purchased an Echo dot and connected it to the C4 Amplifier, like mentioned earlier in this thread? I have my Alexa connected to my C4 system to control some devices, but it’s not setup to play audio through my speakers. If it takes an Echo dot to do this, I’m going to buy one to put in my rack.

    4K HDR & Atmos through C4 Matrix

    Is your HDR mode still working after updating to iOS12? HDR was working on all video being passed through my matrix before the iOS 12 update, and I've tried enabling it on every TV/projector in my house, which all suport 4K60 HDR. I find it odd that I could pass an HDR signal through my matrix to all my displays, but after upgrading to iOS12, which supports Atmos (which I do get), I can't pass an HDR signal anymore. I think I might need to buy a 4K Apple TV for every display locally. I get an HDR signal to every display when using my OPPO, but no dice with Apple TV. I don't get a DV signal when playing DV content through my matrix from my OPPO, but at least it comes through as HDR.

    4K HDR & Atmos through C4 Matrix

    I know all mine are good. I've been using Blue Jeans cables for as long as I can remember. Besides, it was working fine before the iOS12 update.

    4K HDR & Atmos through C4 Matrix

    Mine still isn’t working. It was working fine before the update, but now it’s set for SDR. I can watch an Ultra HD Blu-Ray in HDR through my matrix so I’m not sure what’s wrong with my Apple TV. If I try changing it to HDR in my media room, where I normally use it, it takes so long to get a picture with all the handshaking between my projector and my Lumagen, by the time the picture comes on it’s already defaulted back because I can’t see what to press yet to verify that I’m getting a signal. The delay in getting a picture in my media room is normal. It always takes a while. I tried it using a different TV on my matrix, but when I change it to HDR, my TV defaults to the message that it can’t get a signal, so I don’t know what’s wrong with it. Tomorrow, my installer is coming out to spend the day on stuff so I’ll have him look at it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Hold on, let me look. I forget what everything is/does.

    Apple TV OS 12

    It used to be setup for HDR, but today, I noticed it wasn't. I recently bought a projector in the room where I used it most. When I tried to enable HDR, the handshakes took so long between my projector, pre/pro, Lumagen Radiance Pro, etc, when I finally got a video signal, it assumed I couldn't see the screen to verify that I can see HDR content so it switched back to SDR. I tried the same from other rooms, but when I enable HDR, the TV I'm using at the time doesn't receive a signal. I know all of them can get a 4K HDR signal since I can using my Oppo. I'm wondering if this is an issue with Apple TV or not.

    Apple TV OS 12

    Does anyone have the Apple TV hooked to their matrix, and if so, will it pass HDR content or do I need to get an Apple TV for every room?

    Need New Media Solution

    Ok, Atmos only. Just like with my Ultra HD Blu-ray collection. I can tell you with absolute certainty that I have movies that play Atmos, with DTS:X. I don't know. I'll have to check. This is probably why they just partnered up with IMAX Enhanced. I'm not exactly sure what this is yet, but my Marantz 8805, which should be hooked up before the end of the week is supposed to get an IMAX Enhanced firmware update. I though the whole IMAX concept was having a theatre with wall to wall/floor to ceiling screen. I didn't realized it was something that can be experienced with a firmware update.
  11. Does anyone know if these signals can be passed from an Apple TV 4K through a C4 matrix and then to TVs connected to the matrix that support 4K HDR? I realized today that my Apple TV 4K wasn't processing HDR anymore. I tried to enable HDR from all TVs in the house that are connected to the matrix, but once it "tests" the HDR signal, my screen goes black and doesn't come back on until the Apple TV switches back to SDR. I have my Oppo connected to the matrix as well, and when I play an HDR disk using it, the HDR signal is passed through to all TVs. I don't understand how it works using my Oppo but not the Apple TV. Even my DIRECTV 4K minis will pass 4K HLG HDR through the matrix to my TVs. I tried to enable HDR locally in my media room, but the handshakes from my JVC RS4500K and Lumagen Radiance Pro take so long, by the time I finally get a signal the Apple TV already thinks it won't play an HDR signal. Is this possible with the Apple TV or am I going to have to buy one for each room? If anyone has any experience with this, I'd love to hear it as it could save me hours of troubleshooting.

    The next iOS update for Apple TV is supposed to support Atmos, DTS:X, etc. It’s already available on the beta version, but it’s too difficult to try the beta version for Apple TV.

    Composer Media Edition - sort playlist

    I’ve finally decided that I’ll probably be better off using a 3rd party integration, like Plex, instead of Composer. It’s nice to be able to see album covers,etc on the touchscreen navigators, but the search feature to find a specific album or a specific movie to match up with the name entered into Composer hardly ever works. I have a QNAP NAS on my network and have Control4 linked to the Multimedia directory and it scans for audio, video, etc, which I just disabled. Since it doesn’t ever find the correct movie by name, I input the metadata manually, as well as adding the cover art. When Control4 scanned everything again, it added duplicates of everything. I remember when I used Plex, it was much less work but I couldn’t view cover art on the navigators. Not to mention, snapshots on the QNAP are stored in the same directories, and the recycle bins, so if it auto scans for media files, it’ll pick this up too. Maybe I’m asking too much, but I’m just having trouble getting it to work the way I want.

    DS2 vs Hello vs Ring

    I like the feature of the Ring app where I can view the history, and if it detected motion last night, I can press it and view what the motion was. I also can see who came by my house if I wasn't able to the door or view them through the Ring app live. If the DS2 can do this, then I'm in. The only other concern I have it with the camera angle. I had to install the Ring onto an accessory box so it's pointed to the side slightly. If the camera only faces forward, I can't see who's at the door.

    C4 driver for nVidia Shield

    Awesome, thanks! They're scheduled to come out tomorrow, so I'll add it to their "to do" list.
