  1. Has anyone used the Russound C Series Extra Vegetables driver? Any thoughts?
  2. Hi, considering the russound xzone4 for my c4 installation. thoughts or advice? My controller is an EA-3. Thanks.
  3. We had a customer the own a Russound MCA-C3 that we integrated into C4 using the free EV driver. Worked fine, this Russound is great unit that sound better than C4 own audio gear but there is an weird issue... The unit fall in "Sleep" every five minutes or so when it is not in use... Though of a power management feature but there is nothing about power management into the Russound configuration software... Strangely, we can still use the unit using RS-232 and the CAV6.6 driver (MCA drivers are all IP), and the unit wakes up and start working again... Lastly I took a guess and sent a WOL packed to the unit while it sleeps, and it worked, it is now online... for 5 minutes and sleeps again... I don't have so much experience with Russound but I never heard something about Wake on Lan needed to make the unit controllable via IP? If it is the case, why the EV driver does not feature a WOL option to wake the unit before sending a command? Is someone already experienced something similar with an IP Russound product? For now, the only solution I have is to send repeatedly a WOL packet to the unit using repeating timer to make sure it stays on... Any idea?
  4. https://www.russound.com/products/audio-systems/streaming-systems/xsource-streaming-audio-player anyone tried this thing? Could be a good replacement for a Sonos connect.
  5. Is someone have the Russound software to activate an MCA-3 ?
  6. Just finished my whole home Control4 setup. It is handled by a single HC-250. At this time I use about 4 iOS devices and 2 SR-250's for access. My system consists of 10 zones (3 video zones, 8 audio zones, 2 zones (rack and kitchen) are hidden from navigator). My system consists of the following (drawing is also attached): Great Room 1 Global Cache iTach serial controlling a Samsung TV 1 Dish Hopper - IP Control 1 Apple TV - IP Control 1 Denon AVR E400- IP Control Master Bedroom 1 Global Cache iTach serial controlling a Samsung TV 1 Dish Joey - IP Control Den 1 Global Cache iTach IR controlling Samsung TV, Denon AVR-687, Denon DVD 1 Dish Super Joey - IP Control 1 Wii - no control 1 Playstation 4 - no control 1 Russound MCA-C5 will provide audio to 6 zones (Master Bedroom,Master Bath, Garage, Dining Room, Deck, Patio). Will have 2 inputs: Sonos Connect, Great Room Dish Hopper TV 1 Sonos Connect used for audio to Great Room (optical connection), Den (digital coax) and Russound MCA-C5 (line level audio) 1 Lutron SmartBridge Pro: 8 dimmers I had plans to integrate my thermostats (Honeywell Wifi) but with the cost of the driver being ~$199 I am probably going to make other plans. Might end up giving these thermostats to family and getting new thermostats that have free drivers. Also planned to integrate my Vista 20P alarm panel but the alarm company I used locked me out of the panel. I have the 4232CBM installed in the panel so hopefully I will get this resolved soon. Had the alarm company unlock the panel for me and I now have the alarm integrated. Question you may have about setup: Why did you use Global Cache devices, Russound amp and Lutron instead of C4 devices? I already had them from using Roomie Remote and also don't want to be tied to a particular automation vendor. If I want to switch back to Roomie or something else I can do that fairly easy. All of them integrate really well into C4. What I like about C4: Having a hard key remote. This is probably my favorite thing about the system. When using DVR or browsing shows on Netflix, it was a pain using iOS only. It also makes it nice to be able to mute or turn down the volume quickly. Almost all my gear can be integrated. Lots of good IP drivers. Having a central controller that knows the status of each zone and that status is shown on all interfaces. Sonos driver is really good. Able to browse and play Spotify without leaving C4 app. Being able to control multiple audio zones from a single screen. What I don't like about C4 (not having access to Pro but that is a different topic): Dish Hopper driver, while reliable, is WEAK. I know from using Roomie that the Dish IP driver has loads of options out there. The driver should display the current show or movie playing. DVR integration and a guide should also be available. The UI layout doesn't even have the "Live" button. The favorite channels list calls the channels by inputing the channel numbers instead of going to that channel directly. Once I get my thermostats and security system integrated the only other changes I will have is to add about 3 more dimmers to my Lutron system (also maybe 3 automated blinds) and a security camera DVR system with about 3 cameras. I would love to replace a security keypad at my laundry room entrance from the garage with a C4 touchscreen but I dont know if I can swing that. Love to hear thoughts about the system or questions. I also added a photo of my equipment rack and the Dish Network only structured wiring panel.
  7. I have two Russound MCA-C5 controllers (16 audio zones total) and two Sonos Connect units in my Control4 install. If I go to, for example, Control4 Bedroom 1 and start playing Sonos 1 and then go to Bedroom 2 and start playing Sonos 2, both rooms are grouped into Sonos 1 within the Sonos controller and both rooms hear the same music. In other words, Control4 automatically activates the Sonos room grouping feature. The result is that it turns my two Sonos units into only one source. My understanding from my dealer is that this is a bug that previously existed whenever there were two or more audio switches but that the issue is now resolved when using multiple Control4 audio switches but apparently still exists when using multiple Russound audio switches. Has anyone found a resolution for this or does anyone have information confirming that this is a known bug? Thanks for any insight you can provide.
  8. Can someone tell me if a HC-250 will have enough processing power to handle the system I am outlining below? I will not ever be using the on screen navigator or audio components of the controller. At most 2 handled remotes. Probably around 4 iOS devices will be used for control.
