  1. Thanks all - that's what I was afraid of. Doing reset and even remounting did nothing. Very surprised to hear of this failure rate on here. My other units are acting fine so hopefully this is isolated. Like others - this is out of warranty but still only around 3 years. Definitely should last longer than this C4 could at least offer a prorated repair cost option.
  2. I did solder but don't seem to get continuity. It looks like three legs were soldered to the pads but not worth further frustration. This one lasted me several years but interesting it broke like that just sitting on a nightstand. I inspected the mechanics of the usb port and it appears they simply pot soldered the port tabs to circuit board pads...no adhesive. The tab indentations are clearly visible in the large solder anchor pads. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  3. Long shot as I'm not sure these are available individually but my 260 charging cradle broke due to the usb plug physically separating from the internal circuit board. Haven't been able to get it fixed properly. If anyone has a cradle I'd be interested. Have good power supply and battery. Thanks
  4. Greetings, One of my (3) T3 in-wall 7" recently stopped responding to the top section (C4 icon, back arrow, close) rendering it fairly useless for easy navigation. If I touch the top section it seems to be miscalibrated and highlights the second row section (room selection, etc..). However, every once and a while it will work briefly for one push then reverts back to the incorrect calibration. I have tried factory reset, remounting, complete power down but can't get it to work consistently. Any ideas? All are powered via POE and I'm nowhere near power budget issues. This has been stable for 2.5yrs and just started on a very lightly used panel. The panels with heavy use are doing just fine. Thanks
  5. Obas, I don't have experience with the entec driver but the domeaudio allows for a colorwheel, various effects and of course standard light control. I also use the sound to light feature in my theater which syncs various rgb effects to audio from C4. I'm sure the entec is perfectly fine hardware but I doubt you can find a better overall solution and capability than the Domaudio setup Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  6. Good update - just got this installed and all is working well. Where are you moving your drivers to now with the Houselogix shutdown?
  7. It has the capability you are looking for but all things considered C4's answer is the Triad solution.... Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  8. Netplay audio setup from Video Storm? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  9. Depending upon which Klein tester you got, they have an "additional" tone probe you can add instead of getting both components. I have a klein tester and it has a tone function but doesn't come with the probe. I think the probe I ordered separately for around $50. The klein I have also has the remote plugs for ID like your new one. As to your existing tester link you provided, I see a few reviews are mentioning their malfunctioning / failing and giving false readings of shorts or opens. I'd have to agree with the above folks it looks to be a tester issue after all. I doubt you will find the same likelihood of this sort of failure on the more average price tools, and almost never on the high-end testers. I think you'll have good look with the Klein, and if yours supports the tone function the addition of the probe will give you a very good kit for residential use.
  10. What test device are you using? That seems really odd. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  11. Gigabit switches today have mdx on each port...thus it would still work. Any chance you wired 568a one end and 568b other or have an incongruent patch panel in between? Most testers are simply low voltage electrical path unless you are using a high end L2 or L3 testing device. Unlikely your tester failed ina false positive...more likely the cable is the issue Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  12. Elk M1 here and have found ability to run third party wireless as well as Elk 2-way wireless very useful. I also like voice announcement capability on Elk. Use C4 for all automation functions Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  13. I'll try to mess with this tomorrow and see if I can replicate. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  14. Hi, I never did, but I haven't seen any real issues with the system but it seems this is rather chatty network communication and I'd like to limit it if there is an actual error involved.
