  1. I get what you're saying. The combination of your setup is probably fine for now. The v2 driver is an issue when moving to a higher os than 3.1.0, which was ridiculously inconvenient and time consuming for me to find out in hindsight. I wonder how many more people will find this out the hard way. OS 3.1.1 runs fine as far as I can tell. Usually the only reason to not update is when deciding on whether the hardware is not supported. When given proper warning, I'll hold off when 3rd party developers share that information publicly before hand. Speaking of which, I lose faith in 3rd party developers when drivers like this cause an undetectable major issue such as losing the ability to connect to a project. There was no way to know what caused this so there was no obvious support channel to reach out to other than Control4. I don't know who figured it out first but I'm glad I wasn't the first.

  2. 3.1.1 is the latest control4 OS. Maybe one day you will upgrade even higher than that. Let us know what happens once you venture higher than 3.1.0 Sent from my BBB100-1 using Tapatalk
  3. Toronto area in Canada representing. I also can do remote programming from my location. Sent from my BBB100-1 using Tapatalk
  4. There is also one on blackwiredesigns. It comes with a trial period as well. I can set you up with that too if you like Sent from my BBB100-1 using Tapatalk
  5. I built an ir driver that may work Sent from my BBB100-1 using Tapatalk
  6. This driver ceases to work in OS3. Prior to that, it does work the way you'd expect. The next best thing is to set up a DLNA server (eg twonky) and point it to your itunes folder, whether you're on OS3 or not. There is a DLNA driver in Control4 that will give you access to the music, including playlists. Not all DLNA server's will have the search capability from the Control4 navigators. The list of compatible DLNA servers are in the driver docs, or your dealer will know. Side note, If you're using Twonky on a PC and your itunes library is on a PC, it will require one more step to export your playlists in XML format and save them in the itunes folder (which can be done in itunes also). Once the DLNA server and Control4 scans your library again, the playlists will be available on the navigators. I don't remember having to do this extra step with twonky and itunes for a mac.
  7. There is a driver for it on drivercentral for anyone that is interested. https://drivercentral.io/platforms/control4-drivers/security-systems/roomme/
  8. Re-register your controller and it should link after. You may also have to remove and re-add the control4 alexa skill after that. These were the last steps I had to do because of the OS 311 epic driver fiasco Note: 4sight is still needed Sent from my BBB100-1 using Tapatalk
  9. What's better for which ever country is debatable. I was responding to the controlling aspect of a Roku in a control4 system. It's solid. It's not quite so nice with firetv's. There's either a 1 second delay option with the native driver or more money and a different driver with the irusb. I've also noticed that 4k firetv sticks (with IRUSB) need a reboot once in a while to regain control followed by manually enabling the IRUSB app. This is annoying and not good for reliable "control". Roku's are solid for "controlling". Sent from my BBB100-1 using Tapatalk
  10. That's normal when using the native driver. The IRUSB device and driver speeds it up. A roku is a better option for control with c4 Sent from my BBB100-1 using Tapatalk
  11. I'll post a link to my copy a bit later. I'm pretty sure I got it from the snap av product page for this model a couple years ago.
  12. v10004 WattBox-WB700.c4i This one can't be ID'd via SDDP
  13. I will double check my version when I get a chance unless somebody else chimes in.
  14. I think I've always used the version straight from snap's web site. For the longest time, something was missing when using the one in the database. Either only 6-8 relays were available for programming or binding/connections. Can't remember for sure. Still using the older driver with no problems.
  15. Those IP2IR's can sometimes be close to the same price as a Z2IO but it's definitely a cost saving for just IR control. They both have their purpose.
