  1. Is there a driver for music playback with cover art controllable with iPad through the zappiti player.
  2. Yes it only works at night. I would say the earliest that I could watch a movie is probably 20 minutes before dusk.
  3. Unusable in daylight hours we have to wait till dusk
  4. This may give you an idea. I have my projector enclosed in a table on my deck. It was a complete do it yourself other than the automation through my control4 dealer My screen is hanging on my garage wall with left right and center channel speaker. The screen is a nocturne exterior screen by Draper. Projector is a Panasonic PT-VZ470 which is rated 4400 lm . I too would like to upgrade my projector because I need to go 4K. The projector never leaves through the summer because the build is waterproof. I also have a fan installed in the cabinet just for air circulation and to help cool the projector bulb when the projector returns to the cabinet The nice part about this is anyone can ask Alexa to turn on the outdoor theater go to the iPad and pick a movie and it plays. Hope this helps
  5. I have a zappiti pro 4k player with the chowmain driver. I am running out of space on my Nas. If I use a hard drive in the player in combination with the Nas does the chowmain driver switch between the synology Nas and the hard drives in the player or is that something you have to do manually ?
  6. One problem is not related to the extender. One is and the model zigen HVX-70R. The non related to the extender just goes from the video source through receiver{passthrough)to projector.
  7. No video matrix.Two cat6 extenders
  8. Is there anything that I can purchase that can help solve the problem of the HDMI handshake other than cables. Sometimes when switching to different video sources I get the blue screen.
  9. Problem is not only is it doing it when watching dish also does it when watching movies through zappiti. Could something in the Control4 programing be causing this.
  10. I've been troubleshooting this today. Yes the receiver is set to passthrough. I did change the input on the marantz receiver which did change the blue screen to obtain a picture. The other thing I found curious if I used the remotes to turn on projector, receiver, and dish, and then changed the channel there was no problem. Then I used the iPad pressed the dish hopper icon and the blue screen appeared.
  11. Thanks for the reply. The projector is a JVC RS 2000. Running from the reciever as passthrough. I was hoping someone experienced the same problem. I am currently trying to pinpoint the problem but running out of ideas. I'll tell you one thing it's annoying as hell. Thanks
  12. I have a problem that whenever I give a command by voice via Alexa to turn on tv everything works properly. Projector turns on sound turns on and I have a picture on the screen. Then if I press any button on the iPad for example, change the channel, the picture goes blue. Then I have to change the input to 1 than back to 2 on my jvc projector to get the picture back. First I thought it would be HDMI handshake. But why under a voice command I would get a picture but then when I select a channel change the picture would go blue. Same scenario happens when I use the iPad to turn on the projector. Press dish hopper projector turns on picture comes up change the channel screen goes blue.
  13. Never mind I found my mistake.
  14. Can someone tell me the steps to get a macro to work with alexa.
