  1. For sure, you need to replace Apple router, it is the multicast that Apple router will cause network stability issue. It is better to get dedicated router as flat configuration or managed configuration with your switch. Pakedge RK-1 router is pretty good, but it is expensive... I don’t recomment AP from Pakedge, which I had bad experience.

    Automated blinds and second automation systems

    Lutron RA-2 shade has wider range of selections. Ir is better to have lighting and shade as primary, so your network or C4 is down, you still have full control from Lutron RA2 for your lighting and shade control.

    4K HDMI Matrix Switches

    New receiver all have pass through HDMI to zone-2, don’t down grade the main zone. In any case you do need receiver for zone-2 regardless how you configuration looks. Additional zone do need audio matrix which is true.

    4K HDMI Matrix Switches

    You can just use one advance AV receiver with supports two zone, basically your AV receiver become a 8x2 HDMI audio matrix. Your theater will be main zone, your zone-2 will need another 5.1 AV receiver. Other TV can be connect your main receiver monitor HDMI output.
  7. Is your EA and Marantz both on same line filter, if they are not in same supply source, you may have ground loop issue, if your setup already on same supply, try to put Marantz on high power bank of your Panamax, and EA on a different bank, Marantz may takes 2A current in some case, which could produce line noise to your EA

    Good feedback, agree re-boot can do over bluebolt. Thanks!!! What about performance between Pakedge over UniFi or MikroTik? Is managed switch with VLAN give any performance advanced over flat configuration?

    Are you using EA-5, and some other device like IPTV and NAS... etc? I am also try make some decision between Pakedge and UniFi, not 100% sure any advantage with pricy RK-1 solutions. Pakedge managed router cost even more....

    I think it makes installer easy to support client with Xbox, instead of put Xbox in DMZ. I don’t see RK-1 router can disable UPnP. I post another one to ask who may know how to disable UPnP on Pakedge RK-1. By default, Xbox one chat works right out of box on RK-1, not on Apple AirPort Extreme router. So it is clear Pakedge router trade easy job for installed with security risk to customers.
  11. Without managed switch, can you still tag the port of RK-1 to specific zone? I think you can only assign port #5 to guest VLAN, unless you have WAP from Pakedge which you can assign to specific zone, correct?
  12. I assume RK-1 from Pakedge UPnP is not disable by default, since user does not need to do any specific setup to chat on Xbox. This seems a security risk??? is that a way to disable UPnP for all port on RK-1, and just place Xbox one on DMZ?

    Pakedge vs other

    Is that any performance advantage or quality advantage for Pakedge solution of RK/SX, compared to UniFi solution for managed network? Other than bakpak for dealer manage remotely.
  14. Try to put your EA and maranta on same bank of your line filter. And using HDMI to feed EA to your maranta...So you use codec from maranta to decode audio.
  15. EA5 supports 5 stream sources outpost to 1 HDMI, 2 RCA, and 2 digital. I assume most of audio matrix only accept analog inputs, which is 2 RCA steam sources. If you don’t hard code stream sources, you will Ned some condition code to support different stream source for different zone.
