  1. Hi I'm in Auckland too. I have physical devices in watch list like Roku, DVD, etc but recently I renamed the 'TV' device in Composer to 'Netflix and Apps' in the Watch-List....and I programmed that so that when it's selected, it switched to TV etc, pauses, then selects the apps button on that TV....and goes straight into the apps where Netflix, Lightbox and others are. This helps a hell of a lot when we have family/guests staying with us, as they have no idea how to access Netflix etc because the remote is a C4 one with no 'apps' button. C4 owners know exactly what buttons do, what the coloured buttons do, but I feel for guests because they don't have a clue. So I have to show them. But, what I did above makes it a lot easier now.
  2. Yes you can wall mount ipads using POE, I looked into many options and did this perfectly at my place. To constantly power the ipad, I used this ethernet to lightning adapter: https://www.poetexas.com/products/gaf-lightning-p-d I managed to hide it in the wall without issue, and only the small lightning connector shows, so it's very nice and tidy. To mount the ipad on the wall, I just used cheap magnets from AliExpress here: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32812106293.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.1e564c4dzufodV So the ipad sits nicely on the wall, and is always charged. Benefits are that not only do you have C4 there, but any other ios apps too. Works for me.
  3. "iTSfv (iTunes Store file validator) is an open source addon for Windows. It is aimed for iTunes users who are keen on maintaining or having the goal of achieving iTunes Store file standard tags for all the tracks in their iTunes Music Library." Basically when you have iTunes open, run iTSfv, it's in a standalone window. In iTunes, highlight an entire album of songs whose meta tags you want to 'validate' then go to iTSfv and click on the 'validate' tab, and then click the 'checks' and 'tracks' tabs and select the options that you want. Then click on the 'validate selected tracks' button and it will go through the album and embed the cover art into the metadata. I've used this a long time so I went through and selected my whole library in iTunes in one go and let iTSfv do its thing. Try tracks in one selected album first to make sure your options in iTSfv are ok and you don't need to re-tweak your options in iTSfv, because there are many options. It's a free software and works fine. I use it to embed cover art, properly capitalise letters in downloaded mp3s, validate tags....all that stuff. It's a little unknown gem of a software. I can't do without it.
  4. I managed to fix mine myself the other day. When I updated to 2.10, for some reason the scan failed to pick up almost all my cover art. I updated to 2.10.1 and still the same problem. I had to go and manually re-embed the cover art onto all albums. I did this in a batch with the itsfv software which works alongside itunes. Took a while, but after it completed I re-scanned with control4 and all the cover art is there again. Pain in the butt, but it's ok now. I have no idea what they did to the scanning in 2.10. I hope this helps some people.
  5. I managed to look at the release notes and fixes, it doesn't mention cover art being fixed. Does anyone know if disappearing cover art is now fixed with 2.10.1?
  6. Does anyone know when the cover art scanning issue will be fixed? Thanks, Roger
  7. Hi guys, this seems like a great idea, as I'm looking to find something that can convert my itunes playlists into something that c4 understands. Has anything new developed since this last post?
