  1. TV Power On/Off: Now resolved. Dealer came back out to give me new light switch covers for a couple places and he redid the programming to the TV. It was receiving the command, it just wasn't executing it. He took the programming out, did it again, and now it works. I'll blame a Samsung gremlin for it for now. Cable tester: I got a cheap cable tester and now think I probably need a good one. The cheapo lit up all green. Both ends seem crimped correctly and I tightened them up, still at 100 duplex. Might be kinked in the wall somewhere. But it's weird that this is happening with both a Cat5 and a Cat6 cable, I wouldn't have expected both to be bad. Re-crimp both ends with new connectors and cut a little bit off is my next step.
  2. I replaced the IT-100 and now everything works perfectly. I didn't even have to power cycle the system, as soon as I plugged in the new board it was able to communicate 2-ways. I was also able to guess the installers code after a couple of hundred brute force attempts. Now I can move ahead with setting up monitoring as Dave w suggested. Thanks everyone!
  3. Thanks tekki70. I took the AP to the rack and connected it directly to the pakedge gigabit port and it's connected at 1000. Must be the wire or connectors. I'll try to chase down the issue. Good point on it being behind the TV, I was trying to keep it out of sight and really only have it out there to catch a wifi signal within 50 feet of the tv while I'm watching it. I have iPerf and will see what kind of connection I get. I wish I could put it up on the ceiling but I don't have attic access out there. the in ceiling speakers were prewired. I appreciate all the help on my noob issues.
  4. DSC It-100 Issues

    did you get this straightened out? I have a new IT100 on the way, going to see if that solves my problems.
  5. Thanks guys. TV is a samsung UN557100AFXZA. My dealer moved it and reprogrammed. Must have just missed the Tv off part. I've asked them to fix it. Dealer installed the access point behind the patio tv when doing the tv install, he checked the cable, switched cables, used a tester etc. but couldn't figure out why it's at 100fdx. I'm going to get another access point from my office and bring it home and see if that changes anything. If I can't figure it out I'll get a networking guy to come out and stop jacking around with it myself. Thanks everyone.
  6. Annex driver for LG webOS

    I have an LG65C7. We installed the Annex LG driver (https://annex4.link/drivers/lg-webos-smarttv). I'm having the following issues: The Amazon, LGTV, and SmartIPTV links on the attached picture are dead, the icon appears in lower left hand corner for source but the TV screen doesn't actually change to display it. The TV kind of hangs too and is slow to respond to remote till I switch out of it. The Netflix and YouTube links work fine. Full screen display,, works fast. Only thing is the Netflix logo is blacked out in the display i have tried the U.S. and global version. Any thoughts?
  7. I moved a TV from inside to outside on the patio. Using app or remote, TV properly turns on and tunes to source (cable, appleTV, whatever) and IR module flashes when appropriate. However when I Turn Room Off, IR module does not flash, source DOES deactivate, but TV screen does not turn off and a few moments later the "check signal blahblahblah" message appears on screen. Question: Is this a simple programming issue? Or is it something where I need to physically perform some tasks to get the tv back in sync with the remote/app (powering it on or off before hitting watch source or something, etc). Second issue, a TV upstairs which has heretofore always turned on/turned off properly when responding to remote control commands has recently started having same problem (TV won't turn itself off but source goes away). This is a TV my kids use to play Xbox and the Xbox isn't accessed through C4 remote (they just change the TV source to the xbox HDMI slot and turned the power on manually) so I'm thinking something has gotten out of sync and that I ought to get the Xbox programmed. Question: is there a way I can manually resync the power on/off for TV back up? Or do I just need to get the programming straightened out for the xbox. BONUS ISSUE! Not worthy of its own thread. I have a Ubiquiti AP Pro inside my house that connected fine at 1000 duplex (wall up to an 8 port pakedge gigabit switch). I moved it outside, and all of a sudden it defaults to 100fdx instead of 1000. Switched from cat5 to cat 6 same thing, let the switch power it and same problem, used the POE injector and same thing, connected it to the LAN out of balun and a POE injector and same issue, it's connecting a 24 port pakedge gigabit switch. Question: wtf
  8. DSC It-100 Issues

    Dang, sorry to hear that. FWIW you can order the DSC alarm boards off Amazon, I priced mine and it was $85 I think.
  9. DSC It-100 Issues

    Did you try to power cycle the IT100? Just unscrew the wires from the terminal, they won't shock you. Let it sit a while then hook it back up. And power cycle the controller it's plugged into. I did this recently and it cleared up some but not all of my problems. Heres the thread read with other things folks suggested. I did power cycle the alarm too.
  10. WTB HDMI Matrix 4x4 or 8x8

    How much is an 8x8 4K matrix? Curious. Just got a 4K LG so I can stream Netflix in 4K. May add other 4K sources in future where video needs to go through the matrix.
  11. This happened to me but it was the plastic loop on either side of the rocker cover. It was in the master bathroom so I got creative with fixing it...
  12. Home move-in

    Matt Lowe is a dealer in here who has kicked ass on remote support for me, he's in Arizona and I'm in Houston. I explained what I wanted, he gave an estimate, did the work asap, had a lot of helpful and insightful advice he didn't charge me for. Saved me tons of time, would highly recommend. http://www.c4forums.com/profile/134969-matt-lowe/ matthewslowe1@gmail.com
