Control4 Servers


Nigel T

Question

Hi I'm new to the forum and based in the UK. 

My Control4 installer here in the UK is telling me that he can't make any changes to my control4 lighting and audio system because the Control4 servers in the US are down and therefore he can't gain access.,  Can anyone tell if this is actually the case or is it just bulls**t. thanks

Hi do you have any experience of connecting an xbox to work on a tv with control4 where the xbox itself is located in the comms cabinet away from the tv room Thanks

That’s how mine is. What’s your question? You need to pass the video signal to the TV over something. I use HDBaseT baluns to the theater and Just Add Power HDMI over IP to everywhere else.

Have a feeling that could be BS 

One of the dealers on here could help you 

 

Hmm. While it wouldn't make it less BS - there is a recent windows update that seems to mess a few things up for some composer installs for remote access (reinstall of latest composer will fix - as it reinstall virtual network driver).

Why the mix if you don’t mind me asking?

Because the theater has an AVR that does the switching and is “local”. All the other displays are distributed. The same sources feed both the AVR for the receiver and the distribution system, the AVR just receives a local pass thru so I got HDMI to the PJ via HDBaseT balun.
