  1. Yep does HDR and Atmos. This sucker has played literally everything I’ve thrown at it. What I do like about this is that it will do TV Shows broken down into Show->Season->Episode as well.
  2. Mhh I wonder how long it takes before they will be in court for that They have escaped from it since they’re based out of Europe.
  3. Zappiti has a ripper. I haven't used it myself as they sent me the 4K mini to do the driver but they walked me through the whole process at CEDIA Expo last year and they have end to end solutions if you just want something straight forward. https://zappiti.com/zappiti-nas-rip-4k-hdr.html

  9. No we have not implemented push and hold functionality. You can map the context menu button to another button though.
  10. Here is a whole thread on the topic on the yeelight forums. https://forum.yeelight.com/t/how-to-cut-and-extend-lightstrip/984
  11. We used to have some magic to do this but Control4 is locking down their backend shortly. As such we can't use our backdoor trickery anymore. Justin has finalised the integration of cameras connected to NVRs so that will be released shortly after beta testers are cool with it.
  12. It is local control although you have to make sure Control4 can route to it.
  13. Not sure what region you're in but Simon Peters is the Control4 Area Sales Manger that looks after London, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Essex. Reach out to him and he'll work hold you hand.
  14. This actually is a seperate problem which appeared at the end of last week when pushover's message ID's went over a certain limit and Control4 was converting it to scientific notation. We updated the driver so it should be ok now. The pushover portion is seperate and has nothing to do with outbound communications.
  15. Restart composer as broker is disconnected. Also one is the older driver and the new one which is written for eGauge Pro / Core will also work on the EG3000 but is written to grab registers rather than individual CTs like the old one did.
