  1. well, i didn't really expect you to go find it for me. I thought you might already know of one that works. its cool.
  2. you just add the additional rooms in the the control4 app as needed. They can always be grouped. I rarely jump between the two apps, once i've set my presets up.
  3. I use shairbridge by Room, that way we can just stream to the room you are in. That said, we really dont use it that much since spotify connect came out. For Spotify we just have an instance of the driver for each family member, so they can use their own presets and start it where ever they like. We use spotify connect in this case. Hope that helps.
  4. They are both on the same matrix. So i think i need to ask him to move the family room denon to digital out 2 and the use audio out 1 as the second feed to my matrix. Does that sound right? I think this right because the same thing happens with tune in and it isn't just spotify
  5. I have a screen shot from when we were setting it up....he sent it to me so I could hook everything up properly. but, this i wonder if the issue might be here somehow. Like I don't have enough cables\bindings. The Kitchen and the Gym are both on the Audio Matrix, but I think i'm seeing here that only one cable is going to the Amp\Matrix
  6. wow sorry typo there. didn't even realize i did that. It is an EA 5. That said I will double check how many outputs I'm using on it.
  7. Ok. I have 3 instances of the Spotify Driver in my project. 1 for each family member and each is named as such. We are on the premium family plan, no issues there. I start spotify in the kitchen playing my favorite playlist. My daughter goes down to the gym and puts on her playlist using her instance of spotify and boom they combine. I'm now hearing her music in the kitchen. If i then put my playlist back on it changes it in the Gym. What I observe in that app is that both rooms are joined to the same session. I've been looking through my programming and for the life of me I can't find anything that would make this happen. To be transparent, of have some programming on a button click that will join a session in progress, but again that is on a Music button in each room. I never had this problem before and haven't touched that programming in over a year. My dealer and I have recently upgrade me to an EA1 to address some hardware issues. and my spotify app started acting funny, so I think he removed the old instances and readded spotify because I had to re add my playlists. I'm on 3.1 I'm racking my brain over this and I'm not sure how to track this down. Could sure use some advice from the big brains around here. Thanks for the help.
  8. yes, but you can't buffer a phone call or it isn't a known stream. I'm just saying it has to be stable and fast enough. Its a different kind of workload. a movie could buffer and then play and you would never know, except that you might see it buffer at the beginning. That will not and cannot happen on a live phone call. you just end up with drops and and jitter and all that. The point is that pure speed shouldn't be the goal.
  9. I went with DSC Neo. itegrates well, been solid. No issues. I'm on 3.1, but it worked well on 2.x as well. I did it all myself and had my dealer install the driver. I like it because it can handle both wired and wireless sensors.
  10. I ultimately came to terms that streaming services only need a certain amount of bandwidth and I never experience any type of buffering. Also my wife and I both work from home and I am on Skype and Teams video calls all day. She is on Zoom calls all day. Real time audio and video and all day. These are far more demanding than netflix. If you saw my speed test results you would cry, but ultimately it doesn't matter, I don't have problems. I'm not really sure what i would even notice if i realized the full speed they were "promising". Probably nothing. I will also second this sentiment. You should really be striving for good coverage and the ability to handle more clients than you need. I had the whole family over one christmas years ago and they crushed my wifi (apple extreme), with too many clients and connections. I went for a coverage and volume solution, not a speed solution.
  11. I've had this issue since I put ac pros in 5 years ago. That said. They have been rock solid in terms of my wifi coverage and the number of clients they can handle. My research into this has told me two things. If you block multicast on your wifi network you will get some better speeds. However lots of other things will or can suffer. I left allow multicast on. Second, numerous threads on the subject can be found in the unifi forums. Those threads all say the AC Pros were never built for pure speed, they are built for coverage and the number of clients they can handle, as I eluded to above. The speeds they publish are theoretical limits and are rarely seen in practice. Just relaying what I've read.

  13. So this led us down an interesting path. Volumes on the HC800 are zero but I'm unable to change them. I can drag the slider up to 100 and it just drops back to zero. Dealer can't remote in, we are working to resolve this by setting up a vpn for now. I also cannot do any programming. I'm on the right version of Composer. I drag code to the script area and it just disappears. if i close and reopen composer it shows up. Same thing happens for deletes.
  14. I've been working with my dealer on this, but thought i would throw this out there to see what ideas others might have. Just want to check my logic before my next troubleshooting session with my dealer. HC800 and c4-16amp3-b on OS3.1 I've noticed lately that spotify won't play in any of my rooms. I tried some other content like tune in and it wouldn't play either. RCA outs on the 800 go to my Denon for the family room and my audio amp\matrix for whole home. The digital out goes to my Integra in the theater. I can't get any of these to play content. We tried reset on the amp via its menu. Same issues persisted. now it just so happens that i have an old appletv and a dac so i hooked those up to the system (HDMI to hd matrix and Optical to DAC to my C4 Audio Amp). I manually switched my hd matrix to that input so i could see the screen and started up some music. Then i manually switched my gym and my kitchen to that input and I was able to hear the music. Also since the music was going through the hdmi hd matrix it also played in my theater and family room over those AVRs. Additionally if i watch device properties of my amp in the monitoring area, i can see the amp switch if i try normal operations. I can also hear the speakers in these rooms "engergize" when i try normal operations. I feel like this isolates the hc800 but not really sure how to troubleshoot this further.
