  1. Outdoor tvs are stupid pricey. Is the TV covered? We purchased a cheap vizio with thought we may have to replace frequently which is still cheaper than the sunbrite, etc. 10 years and no issue. Humid climate, 10 ft from salt pool. Ymmv
  2. The consumer grade vistas are but the 128bpt is commercial line due to number of zones and sensors.
  3. Good luck! In summary for me, Jandy no longer works, using Jandy app. MyQ garage no longer works, using MyQ app. C4 matrix went out, using a few Sonos speakers. Alarm Vista 128bpt not supported in C4 new os. Sigh. At least local control of my theater still works.
  4. Agree. Obviously a large number of C4 owners have pools and there are really 3 main control units, Jandy, Pentair and Hayward. C4 has not made pool automation important even though all 3 are list on the website as partners. Disappointing.
  5. Well maybe with the updated api Control4 can develop or fix the driver to actually function properly. It was always poor anyways with known issues with heating display and button toggle issues.
  6. If you only have one Sonos Port connected to the matrix, is room specific playing handled on the backend through c4 programming? Replacing my C4 matrix and adding a Port might be preferable to 8-10 stacked ports.
  7. With josh then Is it ridiculous to create a multizone setup with 8 sonos ports instead of the c4 matrix? My c4 matrix is dead anyways.
  8. What is current best practice for audio distribution if using c4 and josh.ai? Sonos looks to integrate seemlessly with Josh but obviously not with C4. Also, prefer the sonos app for browsing versus native c4 solutions.
  9. Excellent! Thanks for the detailed and prompt response!
  10. So the input switching, power and volume commands are being sent by Josh directly to a connected tv? Or is josh relying on an automation system to handle those commands?
  11. Question. On the Josh demos, they demonstrate tv control and loading content. I assume the content is be controlled through roku or apple tv. Are the tv commands sent through c4 (or crestron) or directly from josh? I have seen both Samsung and Sony tvs in the demos.
  12. Hmm, well I tried removing input cables to the matrix and still loud hum. There are 3 amps connected to the matrix, 1 12-zone and two single zone amps and it still makes the noise through all zones.
  13. A few months ago we came home to a loud feedback hum through all our speakers. I turned of the amps and am just now getting around to troubleshooting. The noise goes away with amps on but the c4 matrix unplugged. Can I assume its a bad matrix switch? The unit is only a few years old. Sadly, the whole home audio was basically the last functioning component of the system with exception of theater control.
  14. Fyi, ecobee doesn’t work for variable speed hvac systems. If you are building new, highly likely you would go with variable speed setup for efficiency and need to use manufacturers tstat. Also, go Lutron for lighting. No question.
  15. The problem with c4 relaying on Josh and others for voice they may find themselves replaced altogether . You could build a really nice system with Sonos for whole home audio, Lutron for lighting and shades, misc vendors for doorbells and hvac all controlled with Josh.ai. Maybe even add small c4 setup just for media room. No many care about video distribution with smart tvs everywhere now.
