  1. I converted from the Davis weather software to Cumulus about 4 years ago and the software is very reliable. The only issue I experience is if my pc crashes. I have is setup to restart automatically if power outage etc and also can remotely restart if a notice a hiccup. Very rarely happens so not a real issue. A few times I have noticed, especially during a storm power outage that the control 4 driver doesn't start correctly but a reboot of control 4 fixes the problem.
  2. well interesting response. so if I read you correctly wapping there is no real discernible benefit to going hdmi, other than getting rid of a bunch of damn cables?? sonic...yes, the receivers are both located in centralized closet that serve the den and theatre room and I have an extra cat 5 as well as cable to the locations
  3. Hopefully as an end user and non dealer I can explain this well enough to get some advice. My system is approx 8 years old but since then I have upgraded to an EA5 controller. There is also a 300 handling some other items. I am currently using an audio authority matrix that distributes with component connections thru two cat 6 to each end point distributed throughout the house as well as I went ahead and ran cable as well. With the upgrade in televisions, 4K etc it appears I am somewhat hamstrung and limited with the component system (and frankly don't think audio authority even makes it anymore) Is there a way to have an hdmi matrix that just feeds the two rooms that we primarily want the upgraded televisions (theater and den rooms) but still have that matrix work with the older matrix and have the two being able to work together. We have the directv genie system. Not sure what other information is needed and hopefully my question/predicament makes sense. Thanks in advance for the comments.
  4. reboot when got home and all is well...who knows why but glad its nothing more
  5. thanks for checking. not real sure where to go from here. maybe the trusted reboot
  6. anyone having trouble connecting to their system this morning. I am not able to access system remotely with 4 sight access. And yes my subscription is still good.
  7. Don't forget speaker wire. I ran all the wire on our new house myself so my "if I had it to do over list" is ...... 1. your rack/home run room needs to be bigger. 2. run the wire after your house is roughed in by the electrician to avoid electrical interference. 3. buy quality wire as above 4. run an extra cat 5 and leave tails longer. 5. run some wire to an outside box for future projects even if not on your plans now those are a few of my notes....good luck
  8. Neither of the remotes have anything showing on the LCD screen. One of the remotes will do the fading light for about 5 sec once you add batteries, the other one nothing. The one that fades has been tried to add to the mesh but won't. Just seemed odd that two remotes about the same age would die at the same time. They weren't misused, dropped, etc. I should add that I have been in touch with C4 and they have been extremely helpful. Very impressed with their customer support.
  9. In the last month it appears I have now had 2 SR 250's just die. I have tried the take out the battery and hold the red 4 and 0 and the reset and nothing works. Really frustrating to have 2 go bad and they are just over 2 years old. Any other ideas on how to reset or fix or can it be some other issue?
  10. directv tech had never seen or heard of issue before and whoever they call didn't help either. he unhooked all the connections going to C4 amp and integras and was still able to recreate the problem. replaced all the receivers with HR 24's and issue was resolved. He took my old box home and couldn't get it to repeat the problem but he has a different switch or connection (swim) than mine. He says they will hook it up the same way and attempt to create problem. I will say the newer receivers seem to work better, ie faster as far as changing channels and reacting to the C4 remotes.
  11. my integras are 2 years old. this is a real pain in the ass. directv coming out tomorrow so will let you know what they tell me...
  12. okay well now this is very interesting....I turned on one of the dvr's this evening and when I changed channels there was no sound so I turned off the dolby digital per your suggestion and I had sound....yeah....changed to another channel and oops, no sound so I adjusted back to dolby digital and the sound came back on....I have to think Directv changed something or my switch or LNB are going out....I suppose it has to be a Dtv issue..
  13. no, when it's out it's out everywhere. almost has to be receiver issue but seems as though would affect picture as well as sound
  14. all my receivers are in one media closet. satellite feeds all 3 and then Control 4 lets me pick 1 of 3 to watch in any location. I have a man cave with 3 tv's for over the top sports viewing. The sound goes from directv to C4 amp or 2 integra's that feed man cave and den (surround sound) Control 4 amp feeds other rooms with wired speakers. I am not getting any sound from receivers or is intermittent. Tightened connections and the % look good on the sat setup.
  15. sorry....it goes from directv receiver to C4 amp or to 2 integra receivers. the audio loss occurs whether being pushed thru the C4 amp or the integra's. I;m also not getting any sound to the tv if I bypass the C4 amp (have hooked up both ways)
