  1. Thanks. Very helpful and good to know. Now the issue is to find a Shield Pro. They seem to be out of stock everywhere... I will return my regular one to Amazon and I hope it gets back in stock soon. Curious if anyone know where I can find one. Actually two. Thanks again!
  2. I apologize if it has already been covered but I want to make sure I dont make wrong assumptions: - can the regular Shield be controlled by Control4 or does it require a pro? - I’m confused on the drivers : seems that Videostorm and Chowmain have both a driver. Others? Is there a simple comparison and/or recommendation? - are there ways to create shortcuts (like mini apps) beyond traditional channels? I’m using Shield with a VPN for foreign TV apps/channels. thanks a lot in advance for help!
  3. Neil helped me again recently and as always, was great to work with. His knowledge is incredible and he truly cares about what he does and his customers‘ satisfaction. So great to be able to rely on him. He is the man!
  4. You can also use a Roku and create a shortcut to YouTube TV
  5. Has anyone tested those and will there be a way to control them in Control4? https://www.theverge.com/2019/10/3/20893709/ikeas-smart-blinds-review-fyrtur-kadrilj
  6. Is Amazon Music High Def available with a HC800 or only with an EA5?
  7. On a related note, can you create a Favorite "Home" page in Composer Home Edition or directly on iphone? One that would include shortcuts to activities from various rooms (ex. alarm, key lights, music...). Thanks
  8. I have a firewall that is blocking a connection from my main C4 controller to the IP address I tried to look it up but could not find useful details. Does anyone know if it is legit and why my controller tries to connect to this server. I can whitelist the address and want to check first. Thanks
  9. That time of the year has come again. With this great event comes a flurry of TV deals. I am in a market for a cheaper TV that does not need to have all bells and whistles but needs to be reliably controlled by my C4 system. Any recommendation on brands to focus on vs. stay away would be great. And ideally which models have built in SDDP (I believe for Samsung for ex, it only starts at some point in the price range). I am quite curious about brands like Vizio, TCL, HiSense or even Sharp. This is a "secondary" TV. Ideally 4k and HDR as most sets do have it. But it is replacing an older 42" Samsung that has never worked well with C4, is not even full HD and is on a stand. A solid 55" will be a great upgrade 😉 Thanks in advance for your suggestions
  10. It looks like all those new products are officially released in March.
  11. +1 on Ubiquiti great quality at unbeatable price. They are killing competition and growing at an exponential pace. For all devices in the networking gear range.
  12. Another big plug for Neil who upgraded my install to 2.10 with zero pain while helping retire my HC300 and replace it with a new Z2IO that actually is great! It is always a pleasure to work with Neil - not only he is incredibly talented and professional but he is also such a gentleman! I wish I had met him years ago for my initial install. Now I know him, he is my absolutely go to person and I trust him 100%. Who thought upgrading or troubleshooting an installation could be fun and painless rather than a chore and a fight with you dealer. Thanks Neil for being here and supporting so many of us!
  13. +1 for Unifi solution with Cloud Key. The only thing cheap in it is the price! And they are taking the market by storm. Professional grade AP and networking gear, easy to install and configure but powerful at consumer prices. Schools, companies and obviously consumers are replacing their legacy expensive networking gear. Cloud key works fine. Basically acts as an always on controller. Updates AP seamlessly and offers monitoring/maintenance from anywhere. You will love it and save a lot of money!
