  1. We have three motorised curtain tracks from Silent Gliss which are great (and no issue with windows bigger than the one you’re thinking about) https://www.silentgliss.co.uk/engb/news/detail/smart-by-silent-gliss-is-officially-control4-certified/
  2. I had this issue as well - thanks for the advice above - will give it a go...
  3. Perhaps not helpful but I got PTZ working on my cameras using Blue Iris and the Blackwire BlueIris driver for Control4
  4. My family had become so used to using Alexa to play music before we installed C4, I needed some solution to get acceptance of the system. I ended up with echo dots in rooms and echo flexes in the rack. Each dot is paired with a flex as the default speaker so when the family ask Alexa to play a song (just as they normally would with Alexa - no extra words), it plays through the flex. The triad amp senses the audio and switches to that input. It is not perfect - it doesn’t work for all alexa’s functionality (eg Alexa timers don’t seem to play anywhere) and the first 0.5 second or so of audi
  5. You can’t run BBC iPlayer on the Roku Ultras so if you want to watch BBC programs, they’re not helpful. The UK versions of the Roku sticks do iPlayer but because the Ultra is not officially available in the UK, it won’t run
  6. Is there any update on this? Any news on release in Europe? I really would like an Ethernet connected Fire given one of my wireless Rokus struggles (and Ethernet Roku Ultra is not available in the UK). Thanks!
  7. That’s great news! Are there specific models which the driver works with? Would it work with the Fire TV Cube? I am in the UK and want a device with Ethernet and mini-apps and the Roku Ultra doesn’t work properly in the UK. Thanks!
  8. I have installed Heatmiser (which looks similar/identical to NuHeat). I have underfloor temperature sensors in the bathroom floors and temperature sensor thimbles on the walls of other rooms. These are remote temperature sensors and you wire them back to a thermostat which we have hidden in a few locations around the house. Heatmiser fully integrates with Control4. We didn’t want the thermostats (which aren’t ugly but are quite chunky) on each wall so used the remote sensor option.
  9. Has anyone used a nowtv 4K box? I understand these are made by Roku and have an Ethernet port. If it is just a rebadged Roku, does it work with Control4? Thank you
  10. Thanks everyone. A UK Roku Ultra seems to be my only solution but this doesn’t exist.... Until this does exist, could the following be done? Use Roku for the channels possible and then on the SR260 there would be entries for iPlayer and other UK apps but all of these just open the Samsung SmartHub and then I navigate to the relevant app? Thank you
  11. I am in the UK and have a 2020 Samsung Frame TV which I use IP control for with C4. I have a Roku stick in this TV which I used for apps because it worked very well with C4 on another TV I have. Being in the UK, Roku Ultra with a hard-wired ethernet connection is not officially available (and certain UK apps such as BBC iPlayer are not available on it). I have had a few issues with the Roku and got to the final straw last night when netflix wouldn't stream on the Roku but I switched to the native Samsung app and it worked perfectly. I am not sure if it is a temperamental Roku or a wifi iss
  12. Great - thank you. That saves a bit of work!
  13. Do the T3 touchscreens connect to Ethernet at 100Mbps? My electrician is coming back to sort out a few network cabling problems, including some which operate at 100Mbps. The switch reports that the ports which my two touchscreens are connected to are operating at 100Mbps and I am wondering whether the touchscreens just operate at this speed so it is not necessarily a cable issue. If I can avoid removing the touchscreens to give the electrician access to the cable behind, it would be very helpful. Thanks!
  14. I have some C4 commands on Lutron buttons which my dealer programmed and I would now like to copy and tweak these commands for other buttons. For example, I have a button which currently has the programming: "Trigger Preset Source Cycler (Includes Off) on Master Ensuite ->Room Control - Master Ensuite" and I would like to have the same control for the master bedroom. I have copied the command to the relevant Lutron button in the master bedroom but cannot see how to change the Master Ensuite references to master bedroom. I can't even find how to recreate this "Trigger Preset..." command.
