  1. All but the USG will adopt- I think the USG is fried even it it shows up in the menu- even after a factory reset. I ordered a new one and will see what happens.
  2. Will followup via text. Thanks Ari! I did not know you were Ubiquiti savvy.
  3. I’m looking for someone who knows ubiquiti gear well enough to remote in (PAID $$!!!) ASAP (tonight?) and help me get my system working after a recent storm. I can’t get my USG to adopt in Controller version 5.12.66
  4. I have a JVC PJ and I programmed in a initial power off into a room power off macro and then added a 120 second delay and added another power off command for the projector as the first power off only triggers a 'are you sure you want to power off' warning and requires a second power off command. I'm running a IR control though but I imagine a IP control may be similar.
  5. Will this (changing the DNS) cause issues if I have 10 or so IP reservations on my Ubiquiti USG? Does changing the DNS cause any other potential ip or other network or C4 gear conflicts? Once I change the DNS as suggested on the USG, the EA5 and matrix and power cycle all of the AP's, AVRs, and such I assume all will be well or is there a potential for complete network disaster? I'm a DIY guy that just barely knows enough to get the Ubiquiti stuff setup and get things running. I have fiber coming in to the house to the Ubiquiti USG, to a 48 port switch and a 16 port POE switch (for IP cameras and 6 T3 screens) and from there all of my equipment is rack mounted (3 AVR's, 3 Rokus, amps, NAS/Plex, etc) aside from the 5 AP's and 2 more AVR's and 2 more Rokus. I just don't have the patience to deal with a network nightmare this week. If this is a easy tweak maybe I can handle it. Since restarting the C4 matrix it only worked correctly for a few hours and it's back to only doing audio on one channel. I have also consistently not been able to control the volume in spotify to the zones controlled by the Matrix...as I adjust them up and down they quickly reset to where they were and nothing works unless I go INTO the C4 app and adjust the volume there instead.
  6. When I power cycle the Matrix I get both channels of audio -- so I will wait and see how long it lasts and update here.
  7. I have not officially addressed it but it is still a problem. Some days I get one side on ALL channels not working and other days it's fine. I have not tested any audio sources but the built in Spotify option but I would think it does not matter what source is coming as it does it to all channels...
  8. It sounds like a few companies are on the verge of making this happen and it could be a feature that we can all soon enjoy. If I read this correctly Caavo and JustWatch are getting there with a multi platform search feature that would allow a user to use one interface to search Amazon, Hulu, Vudu, Prime, (maybe?) Disney but so far maybe not Plex. Even if they have not added all of those services or platforms yet I think the infrastructure exists where in a few years we could have a solution that integrates with C4. I may have misunderstood but I think JustWatch only syncs a persons 'favorites' or 'saved' to watch content?? Ideally it would also allow a single interface for all of the owned digital movies across the various platforms including Vudu, Prime, Plex, etc. as well as monthly service products such as Netflix, Hulu and Disney+.
  9. I actually need a complete thermostat too if you want to PM me ?
  10. Is it possible for one these C4 V2 (not the rounded corner original but the newer 2U flat face version) matrix switches to have a intermittent issue where it cuts the audio off on one channel across all outputs? I’ve done a few rounds of testing and isolated the issue to the matrix but sometimes it works fine and even a few minutes later it won’t. I have only tested it with Spotify and it only affects zones that go through the matrix and not those that go from the controller through a Video matrix switch via HDMI to various AVR’s. Do they have a history of failures in this manner?
  11. Still looking...the one I bought on eBay was mislabeled...
  12. If anyone is parting one out I need the down arrow and the bottom left button. OP needs a up arrow so hopefully there’s someone that has a broken unit sitting around and we can both get ours back in working order.
  13. I know I don't 'own' the data for the digital movies and I don't really have a file sitting on a server with any of the services so it should just a 'permission' to access a file I paid for. It seems like a company like control4 could approach the main 2-3 digital movie services and build a interface which uses the customers logins for each of the services, shows it (maybe along with the customers Plex content??) and pulls the data from their (the movie server/service) server (not C4). I would think this is the way the digital MOVIE revolution may need to move with nearly every movie nowadays coming with a digital version.... at what point will consumers get frustrated that their libraries are scattered around? I'm already there so I'm sure others are too. Control4 could then offer something that is even a bit more unique to the customer experience. Right now it seems that the plethora of smart devices on the market are biting at the heels of C4 and many consumers can get VERY close to a C4 "Smart home experience" with some of these devices. I KNOW that is not the case when you take into account IR control, the C4 interface, continuity, and multiple services being under one user interface as C4 does but this digital content library has to be a critical issue for consumers and will just get bigger. I imagine at some point VERY soon physical discs go away and all digital movie content is sold 100% as downloadable-- okay maybe you can opt to have a physical disc for $24.95 and the digital only version is $15.95 or something? It happened with music and with bandwidth, roku-like devices, smart TV's and such it has to be around the corner. Right now I'm deciding if I want to buy used blurays off Amazon withOUT the digital code (usually for 50% less) and rip them myself into my Plex library or buy the bluray/4K/Digital and have all 3 AND rip the bluray to my Plex server. Or is the next wave of digital movie content just a Spotify or Tidal like subscription service where for $19.95 a month you have watch up 45 movies a month or something (and a higher monthly fee gets you 100 movies)? Surely something like is already in the works as it's the natural progression based on what the music industry has done (but with less restriction to quantity of 'view's).
  14. Have you conected Amazon to Vudu through Movies Anywhere? I have linked these 2 services but what is strange is that I have more movies on Amazon than I do on Vudu as I think it is only a "one-way" connection. By default I tend to view my Amazon library first because of that.
