Chowmain - No Control Video Game Pack


Recommended Posts

Chowmain - Video Game Integration 

OS 2.9 introduced experience buttons. This allowed us to add icons to Control4's navigator user interface. It also allowed us to create what is called 'no control devices'. These devices when selected do not display any transport controls on the user interface. Control4 has done a good job in making a few of the more common devices. We have utilised the no control experience buttons to integrate EVERY video game console ever made. Combine it with the Chowmain Belkin WeMo Insight driver and have the system automatically turn on when the video game console powers up and have the whole system turn off when the console turns off. 

The following video game consoles have been integrated. 

  • Arcade Games 
  • Atari 2600 
  • Atari 5200 
  • Atari 7800 
  • Atari Jaguar 
  • Colecovision 
  • Microsoft Xbox 
  • Microsoft Xbox 360 
  • Microsoft Xbox One 
  • Microsoft Xbox Series S
  • Microsoft Xbox Series X
  • NEC PC Engine 
  • NEC TurboGrafx 
  • Nintendo Entertainment System 
  • Super Nintendo 
  • Nintendo 64 
  • Nintendo Gamecube 
  • Nintendo Wii 
  • Nintendo Wii U 
  • Odyssey 
  • Philips CD-i 
  • Sega Master System 
  • Sega Master System II 
  • Sega Mega Drive 
  • Sega Genesis 
  • Sega Saturn 
  • Sega Dreamcast 
  • Sony Playstation 
  • Sony PSONE 
  • Sony Playstation 2 
  • Sony Playstation 3 
  • Sony Playstation 4 
  • Sony Playstation 5
  • Sony PS Vita TV 
  • SNK Neo Geo 


Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? 

  • Make your user interface nicer by adding the correct icons for their video game consoles. 
  • The icons when selected will switch to the correct input and will NOT display any controls. 
  • Combined with WeMo Insight Switches and our Belkin Wemo driver you can turn on the video game console using your controller and have Control4 automatically turn on the system to the right inputs. Turn off the console using the console's controller or power button and have Control4 automatically turn the room off. All of this is done via power sensing through the outlet. 

Why do you only support OS 2.9 and above? 
This driver is reliant on a new proxy introduced in OS 2.9.0

*EVERY* video game console *EVER* made?

I don't think so.  You don't even have VirtualBoy, or Apple's failed Pippen.

Not that it matters, but that's a pretty bold claim.




P.S.  Here's another 15 you don't have and probably don't need to add: http://www.pcauthority.com.au/Gallery/271730,top-15-obscure-video-game-consoles-for-collectors.aspx/

Any plans to update this with Nintendo Switch?

I have the driver and like it but now have a few of the Nintendo Switches and would love the icon.


Funny you should ask.  We just updated it for the switch.  Its online now.

What about integration with a Hyperspin setup (emulating those consoles and more) using two xbox360 controllers?

You would choose the icon that best represents so that your system can switch to the PC running hyperspin.  Arcade would be my choice.
