  1. For the launchport you'd need an eternal PoE adapter. For the surface mounts I've done, we install a 2-gang metal box, run the PoE into it, and put the adapter in the box. They tend to get warm. Mount the surface mount overtop the box and you're good to go. Also use a PoE midspan if you don't want to waste PoE ports.
  2. I've done a ton of the surface mounts from iport. They are spendy but they look great.
  3. The launchport case is plastic while the Luxe is machined aluminum. I am sure you can use whatever PoE to DC adapter you'd like.
  4. I bet if you asked RyanE how to cook a thanksgiving dinner, he could whip up a lua script that would do it
  5. Yes, it has to be programmed in by a dealer as a device connected and be told when to turn the system on to that input. It will not just play if audio is coming into that input.
  6. @alanchow Will the TPLink equipment work if it is isolated from the internet? strictly controlled locally from C4?
  7. Not sure why the all the hate is being thrown around. I say congratulations and best of luck my friend. Take your time, do good work, and treat people fairly.
  8. The HC300 cannot be updated past 2.5.3. I agree with the instructions given above...once you get your system to zibgee pro and to 2.5.3, make a backup, remove the 300 and install an EA3. I think you'd have to reidentify all your zigbee devices but that can be done. But to echo what most people are saying, composer past 2.0 is licensed only to dealers. HE does a ton these days, so unless you swap your cable box weekly, i am not sure what advantage it would give you once your system is up and running on 3.0.
  9. Highly recommend you contact a reputable local dealer. You should not be worried about what equipment your're buying at this moment, but looking for a cohesive system design based upon your own requirements. This goes beyond simply equipment from C4 and into your wiring infrastructure, your video and audio needs, your network, and more. C4 is not a DIY product, so asking on a forum for equipment recommendations is not likely to give you what you want in the end. Bring in a seasoned veteran with C4 to assist and you will get a much better product in the end.
  10. Ipod touch running the c4 app in one of these: https://www.vidabox.com/kiosks_eu/vidamount-on-wall-mount-ipod-touch-5th-6th-generation-enclosure-white.html
  11. My concern is the input lag introduced from sending the controller inputs across the network (or internet), to the pc, process it, send the video out, compress it, send it over the network, then decode, then process at the TV and display. I have played with a steam link, the steam link app, limelight, and gamestream. From my experience, any game that requires quick input is completely unplayable. I personally don't see how any streaming service like Stadia could succeed with anything but the most casual games. My game of choice is Rocket League and it is not playable over any of these solutions i've tested. My solution is a gaming pc in the rack hooked to my HDMI switch, with a powered USB extension running to the rooms we play in for controllers....but thats for the family. I still have a traditional desktop in my office for my "competitive" gaming.
  12. I do Sketchup + Vray renderings as well. It really helps clients visualize the space we are proposing and works great as sales tool.
  13. Snap carries the whole line from what i see. RCA, F, Banana, etc...and their connectors are easy to terminate, easy to get to precise lengths, and they all look great. BWD carries the full line as well. The dual RG6 you're seeing is just one type of cable they offer.
