    Timer Loop Programming

    I did something similar for my gate. I essentially created a variable and in my case, when the gate was open, a timer was started and the variable was set to 1. I restarted the time after every minute as long as the gate was open, incrementing the variable by 1. Incrementing the variable value allowes me not only to tailor my message, but it allowes me to send the message to different endpoints the longer the gate remains open. In your case, you can check the variable after every minute elapses and send an alert ( Email / Toast) accordingly. The window / gate gets closed you can set the variable to 0 and stop the timer which ultimately stops the alerts. Now... I'm almost positive there is an easier way to accomplish this, but this logic has been solid and allows for message escalation based on duration. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  2. I'm fond of Chowmain's Driver with Video Storms IRUSB. I have 4 Nvidia Shields outfitted in this manner. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  3. Try double taping the guide button. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  4. No need to purge. Any profiles that exist will be re-done. Profiles that don't exist will be created. I've tried the process with and without the purge, and hadn't noticed a difference. I think the purge really comes into play if you don't want to leverage a "profiles" for any of your sinks. You can purge all. Or purge them individually on the sink setup page (I think). However, in doing so, you would be reliaing on the VMM to adjust on the fly. I think Jason (Video Storm) has said it generally takes about 20 seconds if required. But I could be wrong on that. Anyway... because everyone's feed is different. Try it both (Purge all. Vs Not) ways while you have a chance. All-in-all, I don't think it will make much of a difference.

  5. Correct... depending on how many sinks you have will ultimately dictate how long it will take to run through the regen. But... leave them on without changing the channels until it's done. Good luck! Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  6. From the main menu Select "virtual matrix manager config" Select "profile setup" There you should find the "regen all" Option Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    Keypad button ideas

    I have a contact sensor on the gate for the backyard. If the gate is open for more then five minutes the keypad light changes from its "normal" color to red. Anyone seeing the keypads know the gate is open so they can the make sure its closed, before letting the dogs out into the yard. I've also tied toast popups to the TVs and Email notifications at certain intervals. I guess we really love our dogs..? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  8. I'm running the Netplay TV app on a Nvidia Shield and I was wondering if anyone knew how to change the color of either the letters or the color of the selection box. The current selection box is kind of opaque making it difficult for me to track it as I hover over the source(s) before making a selection. Any guidance is greatly appreciated Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  9. Ive switched from Verizon to Optimum and optimum has a different set-top box. Does anyone have a driver for the Samsung SMT-C5320 set top box. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  10. Does anyone know if an IP driver exists for the Altice Set top box? I'm thinking of switching from Verizon fios, and although it's not the leading factor, it would be nice insensitive if one existed. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  11. Issue Statement: I have Video Storm NetPlay TV and the Videostorm IRUSB Chowmain driver running on the same Nvidia Shield but the drivers appear to be interfering with each other. Currently running on the Nvidia Shield: Kodi (Chowmain VideoStorm IRUSB) Netplay TV (IR Via IR Blaster off of EA-1) YouTube (Casting only - But would like SR260 Pause/stop etc) User Experience: If the IRUSB App (which I use to control Kod) is running in the background, and I try to use my SR-260 remote to manipulate the Net Play TV; I.e hit the "guide" button to show my Verizon Fios Set top Guide, or change the channel,etc... the IRUSB App interfers, executing the associated command mapped via the Chowmain driver. In the case of the Guide button, the IRUSB will display the main screen of the Nvidia Shield, rather then showing me the Verizon Fios Guide from the Set top box. If I hit the Guide button twice, then you'll get the Nvidia Shield Multi-Task window, which is not the desired result. The Ask: Is there any way for both drivers to play nicely. I would like to be able to run both my Net Play TV App for my Verizon Fios TV, and, the Kodi mini app with the IRUSB Driver, without having to dedicate a Nvidia Shield per App Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

  13. I wanted to publicly thank Neil for his assistance with my system. I found myself in a bind, and Neil, along with this forum, came through. As with most homes and their home automation endeavors, I have to constantly balance my personal thirst for technology, and my wife's desire for things; "Just to work". Fast forward to my latest project of installing and integrating the Video-Storm HDMI over IP solution. After getting the solution working I thought getting it integrated was going to be a lay up. However, after exhausting two integrators understanding of the V/s product, I asked the forum for help. In comes Neil, not only getting the solution integrated but also taking the time to fix other items the previous integrators broke during their respective attempts. Whenever I put my thoughts in writing I try not to overstate or romanticize events or their results. But after dealing with; integrators who are either: - Too busy to help. - Short or condescending. - Poor follow-up / follow through. Neil has: - Restored my confidence in my selection of Control 4. - Restored my confidence in C4s dealer centric approach. - And... above all else, makes me extremely proud to say when colleagues ask: what ecosystem I subscribe to; and I explain to them the Control 4 advantage. 1 Parts Technology! 2 Parts Dealer Support (a.k.a Neil) Warmest Regards, Corey Bell Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

  15. Looking for some remote programming from someone who has Video Storm experience. I have the matrix configured with the appropriate Source and Synch, and is functioning correctly when switched via the Matrix. However, I need someone who has experience with the C4 portion, this way it works correctly when I hit watch on my Sr-260 Components involved Source: Verizon Fios (HD Video Encoder) Cable box Decoder: Nvidia Shield (Netplay TV) PM me if this is something you can assist with Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
