  1. There was no difference in the driver, the difference was in the firmware of the TV. EU firmware did not give you an option within the TV menus to enable IP control unlike NA despite picking up in SSDP. Unfortunately I've not installed one recently to know if this is has since changed, but if what C4lona is saying is correct then it would appear it has. My previous setups required 232 control (for normal TV control) with IR for the art mode, along with custom programming.
  2. Yeah bit of a black hole automated lock situation in the UK and it's been driving me potty tbh. (however the Yale locks we've automated and installed before hand have been working great.)
  3. Are you sure the inputs not just labled as something else? eg: AV / EXT etc Out of all brands i find it very difficult to believe theres no HDMI 4 command for a Samsung
  4. Because when clients want to switch over from one account to another within the C4 app, it's to control something in another one of their properties for a specific reason at a specific time. Unless they are telepathic and know some one is going to shortly press the call button on their DS2 to which they are not currently logged into on their Intercom anywhere app then it will not call through to their phone.
  5. The majority of my clients have multiple properties and the amount of revenue lost due to the fact you cant be simultaneously logged into two systems is saddening and frustrating. I posted on the dealer fourms about this recently and it's the same with many other dealers. There are complicated ways of doing it, we have one client who asks me weekly if C4 has changed anything on this front. I'm speaking to one company who claim they can but I'm very pessimistic about it tbh. I know for sure I'm not getting involved in it until (IF) it's ever an official feature. I believe the DS2 should of shipped with this functionality considering its target market.
  6. Ok thanks for confirming for me. Will pop out and take a look at whats up with it.
  7. Just had reports of the client being unable to FF/RW or pause ONLY while in the netflix app within sky. @Gary Leeds UK is this one of the reasons you were asking for mini drivers? I've not yet been to site to investigate myself.
  8. Surprised it didn't happen sooner really. He hijacked threads and often went way off topic for no viable reason other than for the sake of debate. On more then one occasion he's lost himself in the thread and couldn't even explain what he was even arguing about when questioned. IMO it was not a case of just having an opposing viewpoint, it was a case of arguing and ranting for the sake of debate. It took away from the original post and often killed it altogether. Great decision.
  9. Nothing particularly exciting. The Neeo acquisition "will" be exciting one day but I don't expect anything to hit us for quite a while.
  10. Funny how you know the exact contents of a entire thread and predict it to a T just after having reading the title.
  11. Quite a few traps to fall into with this including firmware, driver version method of connection and alarm config. Check out KB: 2531
  12. +1 I'd say 80% of my installs are Freeview 20% Freesat If Alan made a driver for YouView /Humax PVR's comparable to his Sky Q driver I would get very excited, although I think the implications / model variants in that field are too much for it to ever be a thing.
  13. Cheers Gary. Womble - I've PM'ed you.
  14. Welcome to the forums! Personally I would disregard the Ubiquiti problems, most of us dealers install it with every job without any issues. The reason its on C4s naughty list is because of a technicality which is not relevant in most installs. The simple answer to your question is yes C4 is your best bet. You will hit limitations and restrictions attempting to achieve all you have listed with products such as the Harmony Hub. If you put enough research into it making sure you have the right products you WILL be able to do it, but each area of the AV will have it's own app or method of control which can then limit you when it comes to things like house off buttons etc. Not that there is anything wrong with app juggling and having several smaller stand alone systems in place, but often it's only once you've gone down that path that you then realise "Oh actually I'd quite like to do XYZ" and you simply cant. Yes you will need your dealer to add additional systems into the project as and when you get them, but after the initial install is complete the labour in doing so will be a lot lower.
