SR-260 Software Enhancements

Recommended Posts

I really love the SR-260, but there are a few things that could make it even more fantastic:

- show room volume on remote display; I finally have some TV's audio going through the main matrix switch in the rack, and volume end points in ceiling or bookshelf speakers in those rooms. I like seeing a number, and with this great setup, there is no way to see room volume like you can with a regular tv to see it's volume. 

- ability to use custom hard buttons (. .. ...) in such a way rather than just a command. For example, bind custom 1 to toggle link master for a light switch so it doesn't have to turn all the way on or off in the case of a dimmer. Just an example of how this would be useful, but there's many more. 

- Be able to see the current playing media in a room (song info). I see why this wasn't possible on the SR-250 due to screen real estate, but the 260 has plenty of room. You can go into now playing and see this, so I don't see why it couldn't be on the main screen like on a touchscreen or other device. This would be so great and I would use it every single day a ton.

- color of screen. This one is kind of stupid but it bugs me how the color of the top menu bar is always white when I choose another color. At the very least, let us change them separately, or just have the custom color apply to the top too. It would look more consistent, which is nice. Right now all of my screen is white because of this haha.

You can do this with programming. I make lighting controls all the time.

1. YES PLEASE! but here is likely the why. The battery power required to constantly update information like that would like put more drain on the battery than c4 would like. This would be the same for #3

2. can be done already

3. read number 1

4 YES PLEASE!

How would you do this? Maybe I'm missing something, but the only way I know to program these buttons is to use programming under the room for when the command is received.

You're probably right about the battery being the issue.  I'm sure they could figure something out, though.

You can't bind anything to the button but you can program anything against it (as you have described) and with good programming you can do pretty much anything...
