  1. youre wasting your time with the people on this board. they dont want to help you.
  2. Yeah it is nice. I don’t ever use my old ATV3 because of it. But if the new Apple TV had the same solid Control4 integration as Roku, I would prefer the new Apple TV. Biggest reason is personal preference but there are some apps that are better on the ATV like the ESPN app where you can view multiple games at once. That said, I’m very happy with my Roku.
  3. This has been discussed many times. It is not the same thing. When you are using a smartphone you are looking at its screen. when you are using a TV remote you are looking at the TV, not the remote.
  4. They are on here, they just probably dont post or go under a different name, but again it doesnt matter. But some are for sure on here. The models for how Composer Pro could be available to an end user are out there. Lutron and the PLC companies do it. You create 2 types of licenses; 1 for an end user that is tied to their system and another that is used by the integrators (dealers) that can be used on any system. Support is handle through authorized retailers or integrators and they charge an outrageous (but warranted) fee to help you if you get stuck. There would also be unofficial support on outside forums. The system is not marketed or sold as DIY or even mentioned that an end user can do stuff, it is just an available option for people who dig hard enough. The reason this is not done is for fear of backlash from dealers. C4 wont give this option because they have probably determined that the increase in new users would not offset the loss of dealers who would leave to another vendor. Thats it and it truly is a valid reason. I understand it but i dont like it.
  5. If you can program any modern Allen Bradley and/or any other PLC you would have no problem using Composer Pro. Its' simple. Writing drivers is a different thing though. You arent going to change any minds on here and Composer Pro as is will never be available to end users. If you want to program (add devices) then find the bootleg versions.
  6. In this case it is the same thing. you still have to take your eyes off the TV to find that button. I'm also curious about not having the DVR controls (hard buttons) available as well. I have Dish network and i dont know if the directional pad can work for that.
  7. Also though...im not going to pay 600 dollars for a remote. The SR series was the perfect price.
  8. I'll reserve judgement on the functionality for another time (i think its premature at this time to drop the Guide and DVR buttons...but who knows) but one thing I read from a CEPro article was the simple, non dealer setup: In terms of programming… there is none, according to Kindel. Integrators will be able to ship the remote directly to a customer or sell it from their showroom. As long as the home is equipped with OS 3 and either the EA-1, EA-3 or EA-5 hub, homeowners only have to enter their Wi-Fi password, tell the device which room they are in, and it is online. That seems pretty nice.
  9. Wifi I decided to go ahead and look and it says it does, Bluetooth, WiFi and zigbee. I wonder if the remote has all those radios or if it was the “brain” that had them.
  10. Interesting. Someone can correct me because I don’t feel like looking it up but don’t the Neeo remotes communicate through Bluetooth?
  11. Apple is a hardware company (traditionally) so I don’t see that changing. This feels like when they made iTunes for windows. Trying to grow AppleTV +
  12. You all knew he meant he just preferred the Apple TV interface (as lots of others do). Just stop it.
  13. That’s true. The ATV interface is very nice but right now I think the features of Roku and it’s integration make it the clear choice for anyone using Control4.
