  1. You can now favorite icons to the home screen on a room by room basis, as well as rearrange and delete icons from the home screen. Since 2.9 you've been able to use the scenario driver to put custom icons on the GUI, now you just have the flexibility to favorite those custom icons. You can also now do custom background images per room as well. With a little tweaking you really can give a much more personal feel to the interfaces on a system.
  2. Is Airplay and Sirius don't work there is likely a network issue that wouldn't be solved with a new amp. Not saying the amp setup isn't janky though.
  3. Haha. that's not what happened at all. sometimes in the manufacturing world things happen that are beyond your control.
  4. You may want to dump the frame rate down. Too high of a frame rate and it's just too much to process and things get choppy.
  5. Agree with Alan, you need to get either Greg or your TFM involved. You really need to make sure you get the design right on this or it's going to be a big headache. Also I'd highly recommend getting the comm server and some of the other gear in ahead of time to test and get familiar. If you do it right though the MDU solution is pretty awesome.
  6. Honestly, if you can dim down to 2% that's pretty darn good. All you need to do is chop off the bottom 2% in the properties of the dimmer and you'll have a nice smooth dimming curve.
  7. Best idea I have is worry about controlling the power to something like your hot water heater to save that electricity and leave the matrix alone
  8. You need to elaborate on "MDU Services". Are you hoping to offer things like the ability to make calls from the touchscreen to the front desk, concierge services, etc? If so you will need a communication server, a well designed building network, and the proper gear in each unit. Or are you just going to have a bunch of stand alone project in the apartments?
  9. Please do but reroute that request to google. C4 isn't the hang up there. 😉
  10. It's completely unreasonable to expect a company like Control4 to grow at those rates but 12-15% which without checking and doing the math is likely the ballpark that they fall is decent growth. I was simply making the point that the sky is not falling with the dealer model like some people think. They are growing. My company is growing. We are expecting the housing market to slow down in 18 months(ish) but by no means am I feeling like this is the death of custom integration. Control4 is not equiped to open the floodgates to end users and even begin to support that. Regardless of people's feelings toward the matter I just cant see a scenario where that makes sense even if it does restrict future income.
  11. might be on an old driver or firmware version.
  12. Yes the growth is slightly terrifying but at the end of the day it's really hard to say no to revenue. Luckily it's been more growth in the size of jobs not the amount so it's a bit more controlled.
  13. Hey now we have some questions. 1. So for "years" you've been telling us the dealer only model will die. I'll give you that as a fact. other facts...every single one of those years Control4 business has grown at reasonable rates, and rates comparable to other technology companies. My dealer's revenue is tracking to be up 40-50% this year to the point where we have conversations about sustainable growth and are we growing to quickly. Just because you say the dealer model is going to kill everything over and over, that doesn't make it a fact. 2. I've personally been involved in several scenarios where someone from Control4 corporate has engaged with an end user directly and something has changed because of it. I've seen bugs fixed, drivers edited, features added, etc. This one is pointless to argue because you don't feel personally heard which I get is frustrating but that doesn't mean Control4 never listens. 3. How the hell do you know what "most" dealers are doing? I'd imagine you've interacted with less than .01% of them. Again just because you say something doesn't make it a fact. There is a very active community of dealers constantly working with Control4 on testing, suggestions, ideas. Just because you don't see it doesn't mean it doesn't happen. 4/5. I'm not going down the composer rabbit hole, or the reasons for the acquisition. It's pointless and I don't have the energy.
  14. did you actually ask any questions? I just see a lot of preaching.
  15. Yes the system is smart enough to do that. Things to check would be the volume on the output of the controller which you can check in the properties of the controller. Then audio endpoint and audio volume endpoint, set in room connections.
