  1. @Cyknight Ok, understood. How and where are the commands stored in the controllers? They must be translated from the drag and drop commands to text? I'm just interested in understanding how the Composer programming is understood by controllers.
  2. I'm finding that using Composer to program has many limitations. I can't do all the things that I want to and it's very clunky to put the programming instructions together. Is there any way to forgo Composer for commands and write Lua scrips with a text editor? Or are the controllers limited in the commands they can execute?
  3. Had a similar issue. I simply re-synced the app with my controller then closed and re-opened it. Although, the light scene editor does seem to be a little buggy. I've only used it a couple times, for small adjustments, but not the greatest.
  4. Awesome, thanks! That's exactly what I'll do. Just need to get the USB adapter to make these adjustments now.
  5. Thanks for the help, Cyknight. [emoji2] Yeah, that's what I was thinking I would have to do; just wanted to see if there was anything I might have missed troubleshooting before I order an adaptor.
  6. Ah, that makes sense 'cause after changing the setting and doing a reboot it always seems to be back on auto instead of what I set it to. Thanks, now I won't waste my time with a ton of reboots trying to change the mode. But, yeah I already tried disconnecting all the TVs except the ones with the issue. The BIOS startup screen displays with no problem on both of them, but once the HC800 has started, the OSD doesn't show up and both the TVs just say "mode not supported". Not really sure what to try troubleshooting next. I guess it's not the HC800. Must be the B100. All TVs are on the latest firmware as well as all the devices. It's just strange that before 8.1 upgrade I could change the HDMI to a different frequency no problem, but not it's stuck at 50Hz.
  7. ? There are options for both HDMI and component resolution... Sent from my D6603 using Tapatalk
  8. I don't think it's a clock stretching issue in my case as all inputs are working on the Samsungs with no static except the HC800. Sent from my D6603 using Tapatalk ...actually after further reading on the SnapAV site, you're right, it could be the the clock stretching issue if the HC800 is on HDMI 1.2 technology.
  9. I've been having an issue with 2 TVs (both Samsung) on my system not displaying the HC800 OSD. The HC800 is running through a Binary B-100 and displays on all TVs on the system except the 2 Samsungs. Before the 2.8.1 upgrade I could put the HC800 on 480p @ 59.94/60 Hz and have the OSD display on the Samsungs, but now the HC800 will not change to any mode except the 1280x720p @ 50Hz. I've tried changing the hdmi resolution through composer to every option, but it keeps reverting back to 720p @ 50Hz. I'm guessing the issue may be with the 50Hz and the Samsungs only wanting to play at 60Hz. However, I can not get the HC800 to go at 60Hz. Could this be an adjustment I need to make in the settings with the B-100? Anybody else encounter this issue or have any guesses to what I could try? I would really appreciate any advice since I've tried everything I can think of. My next step would be to purchase an R232 to USB adapter so I can adjust settings with my B-100, but I wanted to see if anybody else has encountered this issue before I do that.
  10. Thanks @South Africa C4 user! This is exactly why I posted here. I didn't even think to incorporate variables like that. That solves my last issue of accidentally ramping a light to 30%. Really appreciate the advice.
  11. Hey guys, Been coming here to find advice for a while now, but thought I'd share some of my programming and see what critique you might have for me. I wanted to add a timer to some lights in my house to be tripped by door and alarm IR sensors. However, I didn't want them to start when the lights are on already. I solved this problem by ramping to 30% and adding the variable that when the timer expires, if the light is at 30% it will shut off that light (so you can make the light stay on even if the timer is tripped). I would appreciate it if you could let me know if there is a more efficient way to program the lights? Heres the programming (Also attached an image): WHEN THE UPPER HALLWAY->UPSTAIRS HALLWAY MOTION SENSES MOTION If time is night time -If Upper Hallway->Chandelier is off --Reset Timer 'Upper Hallway' --Ramp to Level 30 on the Upper Hallway->Chandelier over 1 Seconds -If the Upper Hallway->Chandelier level is = 30% --Reset Timer 'Upper Hallway'
