  1. I have a number of schedule agents that control my lights when I am away, each set of lights at a different time. When I'm home, I don't want to have them be active. There are quite a few of them, and it would be convenient to be able to activate them all at once, rather than enable and disable each one individually. Each schedule agent is at a different time. Is there a way to enable and disable multiple agents at once, or is there a better way to do what I want? Thanks, Larry
  2. I thought that I had done exactly what you did (even down to not automatically launching HE & rebooting after uninstall), but I tried again just to be sure. This time it worked. I believe that the difference may be in the patch. The CMD dialog said that the patch was complete - so the other times I closed the window. This time I let the CMD window close on its own. It may not have been quite done. Other than that, I tried the full uninstall/reboot/install several times yesterday - but this time it worked. Thanks for the advice.
  3. I de-installed my version of 2.9.0 and installed 2.10.2, applied the patch, and I still get the same problem. I even used IO Installer, which gets rid of associated files that the Windows installer does not. I did need to put my creds in after the new installation, so it was completely de-installed. I rebooted my machine after de-installation. I am running Windows 10, 64-bit. I see that a couple of other people have that same issue. Any ideas on it? There must be something that is lingering somewhere.... I would like to suggest that it would be easier for those of us trying to get it working if the responses from now on deal with how to get it fixed - rather than company bashing posts that are just making it harder to wade through all of the responses to get useful ones. Thanks, Larry
  4. Got it. My goal is pretty simple. My receiver defaults to sending audio to the speakers when it turns on, and I want it to send it to the TV so that my soundbar will output the audio. I just need to change the output when the room goes on. I don’t care if it also does the same thing when it powers off - in this case it would be even better if it remembered the setting, but it doesn’t.
  5. Thanks - that helps. When you invoke a power on activity by using the video change event, I assume that the actions happen after it has turned on all of the devices in the room? And since a power off event also invokes a video change, do the additional programmed actions happen before or after it initiates the room power off?
  6. Is there a way to initiate a set of actions when a room powers on? There is only a "power off" option in the room list of events. Will a power on automatically activate a video or audio change?
  7. Appreciate all of the thoughts - I believe that I have what I need for now. I do want to answer one question just asked (assuming that OP is original poster). I was looking for something that I could do with HE. I have a few reasonably simple approaches here that might be good - but if not then I will have someone edit the command in the driver - I agree that this would fix the problem.
  8. Thanks for all of the responses - I have my answer. My current thought is that I can use one of the custom buttons to change the intput to what I want, then turn the room off. I'll see how it goes.
  9. I wanted to add that I am looking for some way to do it myself with Composer HE. I can do a lot of programming with that. If I need to have a driver changed, or if it is something that I cannot do myself, I can get the dealer to make the change - but would prefer to do it myself if possible. It allows me to tweak it if needed.
  10. Thanks for the responses. I will answer the "why", if someone has another solution that allows this in a simpler fashion, it is welcome. My wife likes to use the Tivo remote (she vastly prefers that over the Control4), and we have a Tivo Mini in that room - we can turn the TV on and off with the Tivo remote, and then use that same remote to manage the Tivo. Most of the time she is watching Tivo, so there's no need to use the Control4. It works great. Occasionally she uses Roku (which is in the basement), and the input to the TV needs to be changed. She uses the Control4 remote in that case, and it works fine -changes to the right input, etc. No issue. I would like the system to change back to the Tivo Mini input when she turns off the system so that it is ready for her Tivo watching. She could just change it back before turning off the system - but that is one more step that she needs to remember each time. I am trying to simplify it as much as possible. Not sure if that is clear
  11. The answer to why is a little complicated - but I will try. We don't always use the Control4 remote to power the TV on. The TV remembers it's input when it powers off, so if I can set it to a specific input when it turns off (from the Control4 remote), it will be at the right input when I power it on from the other source. I realize that it would be simpler to just always use the Control4 remote - but if you can trust me that there is a good reason for wanting this other approach it might be best.
  12. I am trying to add an action for my TV when I select Room Off. I want to change the input selection on the TV before turning if off. Here is what I did: On left - select When variable "room" Power State changes If Room Power is Off Change the TV input Turn off TV Unfortunately, the TV turns off immediately as part of the TV set of actions on Room Off, so the change in input does not work. Is there some way to prevent the Room Off from doing anything (I can turn off the devices separately as part of the programming) or (even better) do my special actions before the normal Room Off actions happen?
  13. Thanks - it works the way that we hope. When I pop up the remote in HE the way that you suggest, I can turn the TV on and off, and the volume of the soundbar is controlled by the "virtual" TV remote. Both the sound bar and TV support ARC on the HDMI cable, and my understanding is that the audio volume is being controlled through the return channel on the HDMI cable. Does that make sense?
  14. I have added a sound bar to my television, and the bar allows you to control the volume using the television volume control - but I can't figure out how to make the volume control on the navigator control the TV rather than the receiver. My receiver will send the audio to the TV through HDMI (rather than send it to the speakers hooked up the receiver). But I still need to use a different remote to control the volume on the TV (which controls the volume on the sound bar). There must be a way to tell the navigator volume buttons to send information to the TV rather than the receiver - but can't figure out how to do it.
