  1. Very excited for you Neil. But a big loss for many of us and the broader Control4 community. Your talent and attitude will be missed by all of us who have interacted with you over the years. All the best for your new role and I have no doubt you will do incredibly well.
  2. By the way, Baldwin lock works great. Very reliable and batteries last months. And you get warnings when batteries run low.
  3. Have you looked at the Monoprice HDMI switches? Cheap and in my experience, have always worked well. I know they have 5x1 HDCP 2.2 models. https://www.monoprice.com/category/adapters,-switches,-&-splitters/audio-video-distribution/audio-video-switches A good installer will program your Control4 quickly to enable full control via IR.
  4. Hey Alan, thanks for taking the time to reply. I reached out to Audioquest and here is their response All our HDMI cables are capable of carrying signals up to 18 Gbps as per HDMI 2.0 specs.That includes UHD/4K – 30 Hz – HDR (with Chroma set to standard 4:2:0). With passive HDMI cables these values can be stretched a bit, with active cables (10 meter / 30 ft and up)these values are pretty strickt. Which AQ HDMI cable and which length do you use? The usual suspect for ‘bandwidth overload’ is the Chroma setting. Please check if the Nvidia unit is set to 4:2:0. Also, is HDMI pass-through enabled in your AV receiver? It seems that if I could reduce the resolution of my Shield to 4K 30Hz HDR 4:2:0, I should be ok. I think this is what I have my Roku at. But I can't manage to change the resolution (always default to autodetect and can't start in safe mode - A-B pressing on USB keyboard not working...). Coincidentally, I have just received my IRUSB and ready to go on Control4! Thanks again for any suggestion you may have. And running a cable directly between TV and Stealth is really not a practical option based on physical configuration...
  5. I am waiting for my IRUSB to be able to control my new Nvidia Stealth. But I have hit a wall on connecting it to my TV via my Denon X220W receiver. After some extensive troubleshooting, I have come to the conclusion that the HDMI from the receiver to the TV is the culprit, even though it is successfully passing a 4K 30Hz HDR signal from my Roku... Basically, the unit boots and I see the Nvidia logo on the screen for a few seconds but then a black screen and no signal error message when it moves to a higher resolution and normally shows the Android logo. Immensely frustrating... The cable is an expensive Audioquest Forest run in the wall about 4 years ago. Basically, quasi impossible to swap. For some stupid reasons, a conduit was not installed... Luckily enough, I had requested a couple of CAT6 cables going from the receiver area to the TV. My questions... and all help would be great! - any suggestions on the Stealth unit to address the issue? It seems to be the result of the unit defaulting to a resolution higher than what the cable can support. I have tried to force a lower res on the unit (connected to another TV or via another cable) but it does not seem to "Save". - can I "boost" my HDMI signal? I don't remember the exact length of the cable but I suspect it is around 25ft or more. I can't find my invoice not the box and I don't think it says on the cable. If so, what would be a good and cost effective solution? - as last resort, could I use one of my CAT6 cables? And if so, what is your recommendation to enable, minimizing cost and maximizing quality and flexibility. Thanks a lot in advance once again for your precious help. I have to admit it has been very frustrating... Note: I am adding the Stealth to my ATV and Roku as I need to run a VPN to access some foreign programs. Unfortunately not a (at least performing) option on the other boxes...
  6. Can you provide more details on the changes/additions and how to get them. Thanks
  7. 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!
  8. 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!
  9. 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!
  10. You can also use a Roku and create a shortcut to YouTube TV
  11. 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
