  1. Gov't needs to kill HDCP and Make AV Great Again. [emoji1787] Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  2. Because YOU haven't heard, seen, or read it doesn't make it a fabrication. Even more valuable than any papers, are the real world experiences exchanged between fellow dealers and manufacturers at trainings, expos, dealer forums, etc: terminate with a standard CAT6 plug and minimize your headaches. A business has better things to do than take unnecessary spins-at-the-wheel. DIY'ers can afford the luxury. Agreed to disagree. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  3. C4 HDMI & HDBaseT Cabling Guide: https://www.control4.com/docs/product/av-cables/cabling-guide/english/latest/av-cables-cabling-guide-rev-c.pdf I prefer terminating those runs with standard CAT6 plugs to minimize issues. This coming from someone that hates the tediousness of those terminations; a necessary evil.
  4. Patch panels, keystones, and even the "EZ" type CAT 5/6 plugs are adamantly discouraged by most installers and manufacturers for baluns/extenders. As with many things, YMMV. Just not worth the possible headaches. Sent using Tapatalk
  5. [emoji115][emoji115][emoji115] What he said. Excellent article and details at the link: https://www.metageek.com/training/resources/zigbee-wifi-coexistence.html Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  6. Lutron has a patent on the hem bar alignment technology. Rarely install shades other than Lutron but interested as well if this can be imitated with programming.
  7. You did the right thing: tested multiple cables from different manufacturers with the same result; bad tester.
  8. We install the their Aventage series; the rx-a880 and move up from there as needs dictate. IP and serial control capable. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  9. With the exception of Anthem, have installed all the major brands and Yamaha has proven to be most reliable for us. Integration is rock solid. It's also notable that the company stays on top of the constantly moving and irritating HDMI standards, makes actual instruments and all sorts of musical electronics, isn't owned or run by venture capitalists like some others, and was established over 130 years ago.

  10. Wow! Your detailed post is much appreciated! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  11. Thank goodness I haven't had to resort to this on any of my projects but I've heard that you can cut off the ends of an HDMI cable and use it as a CAT5 for HDMI extenders if running a new cable isn't an option. Curious if any one has had to resort to that and what the outcome was. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

  13. I'm not a security dealer but was able to program a DSC PC1832 panel for my sister with the help of the YouTube video at the following link: I installed the Envisalink module for self monitoring and she's happy with it : http://www.eyezon.com/?page_id=176 No bells and whistles with that setup but good for lower budget solutions.

  14. Essentials also allows you to retrieve the programming from the main repeater if it's on a minimum firmware version; I believe 6.0. EDIT: Meant to say inclusive allowed program extraction if repeater is on ver 6 or higher. [mention=141082]Cartnj[/mention], was unaware that had trickled down to Essentials as well.
