  1. Sounds like his J+P is on the 2624, and has some of the ports configured for video and some configured for the "control" or data vlan.
  2. If you have a security+ 2.0 opener, have your dealer buy one of these https://www.garadget.com/product/security-2-0-dry-contact-adapter/ Hook it up to a C4 Z2IO along with a rail mount contact on your door. Program the contact and relay to the general garage door driver. Now you have an official integration that doesn't rely on the internet or some unofficial connection to the MyQ service.
  3. I had heard it was the other way around, that BBY decided to do Savant instead. Either way, you're able to switch to another local dealer as others have said.
  4. Houselogix has been dead since SnapAV bought them. I wouldn't worry too much about them being mad that someone else write a driver that they dont support or really sell anymore. >0.0% chance that someone at control4 gets bored and brings those into the fold, though unlikely imo. Good luck, have fun.
  5. The planet waves cable is really nice. Most people buy the BC series RCA ends but you can spring for the gold plated ST series if you like. If you need something other than the 3.5mm/unterminated there is generic cable in various colors. https://www.blackwiredesigns.com/cat/planet-waves-cables-connectors/bulk-cable/
  6. I use/have used the Ring a lot even at my own home, and it works great for the price. Difficult to retrofit the DS2 without having wifi support.
  7. The Control4 mechanical switch is compatible with 3-way switch configurations and is sold to dealers in 10 packs.
  8. In your one particular case since you don't have genie minis, yes, but IP control is not reliable on the genie minis - no power on/off and if you get into a menu you have to reboot. Dish is a far superior integration as ip control works flawlessly on the hopper 3 and joey 4k boxes, and the Dish hardware is still ahead of DirecTV - 16 tuners, sling built in to stream all channels and DVR programs, OTA antenna support, 4K built into the DVR, tiler allowing you to watch 4 shows at once built into the DVR, faster response on the GUI....
  9. Currently, J+P supports 4K30 4:4:4 8 bit hdr 10 4k30 4:2:2 10 bit hdr 10 accept and convert 4k60 4:2:0 8 bit to 4k30 does nothing with 4k60 HDR10
  10. Don't do the Control4 HDMI matrix in my opinion. AVPro Edge makes a better HDBASET kit with scaling controls and full 4K 60 support.
  11. Or just don't use the LU switches if you need scaling or other features they don't offer. AVPro Edge matrix switches like the AC-MX888-AUHD-GEN2 have the ability for you to set passthrough for 4K60 444 or to turn on a scaler for that output to downscale to 1080p.
  12. Time for your dealer to call C4 tech support and do some troubleshooting. Make sure firmware and drivers are the latest, see about the status of the EDIDs being synced and re-run calibration, see if you need to lock zones or anything.
  13. You can use them at the same time. Common use example would be HDMI coming from Directv into hdmi input 1 and digital coax from an EA controller into digital coax input 1. The audio input on the digital coax is only routed to the analog audio out on the leaf, it's not getting mixed in with the hdmi video or sent down the balun as digital coax.
  14. So the answer to this question is moip works* There are caveats to it (like lack of downmixing audio to send to audio matrix systems) and the system needs to be designed around that, and even then the consensus is on the dealer forums that the product is still very much beta. Do you really need an IP video distribution system? If not there are other HDMI matrices like AVPro Edge that pass all current specs of HDMI (4k 4:4:4 60) and work great. HDMI distribution is one of those areas that's not cheap and you do get what you pay for in most cases. I would encourage research of the right system for your needs, as I would hesitate to choose a new product based solely on price. "The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten. “
