  1. Yea, I thought about an APPLE TV. That has everything and works fine in another room. Just seems silly that all the tech this kinda think couldn't work. Is there no way to choose an output something like.... When living video is Netflix choose optical or HDMI Arc output? I did not see such at thing... Thanks
  2. Hi Guys, I need some help if possible. In programming LG mini apps to an LG tv I cannot seem to get audio to the mini apps (Via the receiver) even though I have bound them to the TV as your supposed to via mini app 1, 2, 3... HMDI ARC just seems to make it horribly inconsistent. ie.... works sometimes but sometimes not... Is there a trick to this where the audio would work thru the mini apps via the receiver. From what I have seen with HDMI arc that seems to be all over the place...Attached is my current programming... Thanks guys
  3. Ok guys, Just an update to help those that have an issue like this. There are 2 things that can cause the Apps NOT to show up in your room. 1 - Select the room your in then click navigator and be sure that the apps you want to see if in watch/listen section or visible. (I knew this but just helping others) 2 - this one can be tough. If the binding is missing for the audio or video the pandora / Netflix will not show up with no binding from what I see. My issue was the binding
  4. Yea, I actually unhide digital in the room but when I went back to unhide it then it was gone....if my memory is right
  5. No. The amazon or tune in does not show. I actually think that is exactly what I did was to hide the digital media Icon by accident but now I cannot see it to unhide it. It’s not there and grayed out. Thanks guys.
  6. Hey guys, Not sure what I did but I did something. Was working with the new remote programming and all of a sudden my pandora is not showing in the room I was working in and In the navigator where you can hide or show things pandora does not even show up (the attached image shows pandora fine but only in the downstairs room and I it was showing up in the living room like this but now it wont show in the living room at all)... What am I missing here? Looks like the digital connection is there> Thanks guys!
  7. Hmmm, I need to check that actually. My assumption was that it would do it through HDMI but I remember that my receiver in the room is older and might not....
  8. Hi guys, On a samsung tv that has Smarthub if the bindings are setup for the audio endpoint 1 to be the receiver which is where I want my audio to come out of if I swap from TV (which plays thru the receiver fine) to something like netflix or amazon prime the audio will not swap to the receiver it just plays thru TV instead. My first thought was to bind the video's audio endpoint 1 to the receiver... Nothing seemed to work? Any ideas what I am missing. Am I thinking incorrectly here that Video audio endpoint 1 should be directed to the receiver or am I just missing something entirely. I have a Sony TV in another room that works just fine and the bindings are set that way. Not sure what the difference between the 2 below are: Video volume 1 and 2 no binding Video's audio endpoint 1 and 2 Currently I just set the Video's audio endpoint 1 to the receiver Thanks guys
  9. Hi guys, Got several NEEO remotes installed and have a few issues that I am trying to figure out. They are: 1 - Where does the remote get its default screen configuration setup... I would assume it can be configured to show what you prefer but I have tried in composer and even in the mobile app... Anyone figured this out. I am sure i am just overlooking something.. 2 - It seems I might have found a bug.. in composer you can tell the room to auto mute but it is off. With the Neeo remote only (not the standard remote) when using any of the icons in the play music/ change room section the NEEO remote will only mute or pause each of the buttons. ie... it wont make the room icons work it will only pause each one of hte icons and mute the audio. Any help?
  10. Hi Guys, So Ari fixed the driver login issue that was created by the new C4 software for the EPIC Google driver but since then the driver does not work the same at all.. I had all the voice commands setup and working fine but now anything that has the word light in it along with many other commands just turn on everything in the room where as before this fix for the login issue everything worked fine.... Here is some examples: Downstairs lights use to run a command to turn on a custom scene with a few lights downstairs but everything in the room just comes on instead. This also happens in every room... Not only that but it seems that now many of the commands in general don't work that use to. Its almost like Google lost their ability to to be term specific correctly or there is something in the driver not working right. Ari says they only had an issue with the login... Anyone else seeing this same issue? Just curios?
  11. Hi Guys, I got Josh appliance and love it but I would love to see some code samples of what you guys are doing with this and your bringing In other Scenes into C4 using a Virtual driver? As it stands right now I am using the Chipsal_232 Driver. I will post some samples here too but I thought a new thread with Coding ideas and examples might be good. Thanks guys Josh sent this to me earlier and this is what I use right now but I think you guys might have some other thoughts and samples of what your doing HomeKit does not currently support any *native* AV system modules. So you can't represent a TV as a "TV" in HomeKit. What you *can* do is use virtual switches to turn things on and off, and that gives you some really powerful programming options. The general idea is that you use the Clipsal Legacy Relay Light V2 driver as a "hidden switch" in C4 and hide it from navigators. Then you use programming to set the switch state and receive commands from HomeKit. You can use programming to immediately turn the switch off after it's been turned on, to represent a "momentary press" (like changing channels on a TV, although that gets weird with Siri voice control, but does work well in the Home app). > > I use this myself to do things like: > > 1) Have a switch that represents my "Apple TV" view in my theater. I can say, "Hey Siri, turn on the Apple TV in the theater" and that turns on the "Apple TV" switch in the theater room. Then I use programming to select the video source and turn on the room appropriately. When the switch turns off, I turn the room off. > > 2) Start audio playback. I have a "Josh's Pandora" switch in the office. I can say, "Hey Siri, turn on Josh's Pandora in the Office" and it starts playing back my favorite Pandora channel. Turning off the switch turns the room off. > > 3) Use virtual switches for presence awareness. I have a "switch" for each person's device in the home. When Apple's "automations" triggers that a user is home or away, I turn their appropriate switch on or off. In iOS 11, they also have a "all users gone" or "first user home" state, which also has switches. I can then use programming to trigger C4 automations appropriately. > > 4) Setup trigger-based alarm clocks for the kids. I have an "alarm on" switch for each kid. At the appropriate wake-up time, if the alarm on switch is enabled, then it turns on the kids pandora stations in their rooms. I have a "Is Tomorrow A School Day" driver that links into my kid's school's calendar, and automatically sets the switches states based on whether each kid has school the next day. If one kid's alarm is on, then the parent's alarm also turns on. If both alarms are off, then the parent's alarm also turns off. This also lets me easily turn off the kids alarms if we get snow day notices. > > There's a lot of power to this system, if you get creative.
  12. Hi Guys, I have 3 Google homes and the EPIC C4 driver for sale. Let me know if interested.
  13. Thinking of playing with the nest e tstat. Anyone had experience with it and c4? Does the driver work.
