    Sure, some screenshots are linked to below. The C4 integration is really pretty awesome, but as you note, the multi-zone playback bug is unlikely to get fixed. https://www.dropbox.com/s/4tzf94kx5d95vfm/Screen Shot 2020-03-29 at 10.17.07 AM.png?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/ys3jm0cyy8c94rh/C4-Roon.Screen Shot 2020-03-29 at 10.16.38 AM.png?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/8y8tk3kx344urnx/C4-Roon.Screen Shot 2020-03-29 at 10.15.03 AM.png?dl=0

    There is a C4 driver for Roon that works only if you have a nucleus. The problem is the driver has a bug that prevents multi-zone playback from functioning properly. Roon has been aware of the bug for over a year, and I have kind of lost hope that they will fix it. Apart from zone grouping, the integration is really good. However, the lack of reliable zone grouping is a huge flaw IMHO. On the plus side, I love the Roon app, and it is still my go-to interface for music. It works really well with Sonos and a variety of high-definition streamers. And the Roon app really enriches the listening experience.
  3. Cool! I didn't think my dealer had auto-update set up for that driver, but it seemed to update to v13 automatically.
  4. Woo-hoo! Everything is linked again. I didn't end up needing to re-pair with a new PIN.
  5. I sent an email to Ecobee support. I haven't had good luck getting them to pay attention to Control4-related issues, but I figured it was worth a shot. Has anybody else made progress?
  6. I tried to get a PIN this morning with no luck.
  7. Were you able to get a PIN at all?
  8. At some point today, my Ecobee network driver became unlinked to C4. When I click "Get PIN" -- either in composer or on a touchscreen -- there is no response. The LUA output shows, "Access denied | www.ecobee.com used Cloudflare to restrict access." I checked status.ecobee.com, and everything shows up as operational. Is anybody else experiencing this issue today? Thanks
  9. Thanks a lot — very helpful!
  10. I am getting upgraded from 2.10.3 to 3.1.1, and I have to pick a convenient day for this to occur. About how long should I expect my C4 system to be offline for this upgrade? My dealer has already gone through the process of replacing drivers that are obsolete in OS3, so I am assuming/hoping there won't be any additional time for that. My dealer characterizes my project as being on the larger side, although I'm not sure how best to quantify that here. When Composer launches, it shows that it is loading 625 drivers, if that helps. Thanks
  11. Just a quick postscript on this: We installed the Cinegration driver, and it is working great -- much better than the older driver we were using. Thanks again for the advice. I did have some head-scratching moments in the beginning, but then I finally realized that shades were stopping whenever they received two identical commands in a row. I had a bunch of these command sequences in my code to mitigate missed RF commands -- e.g., "close shade" command plus 2 second delay plus another "close shade" command as a backup. No need for the backup commands anymore, since the Cinegration driver handles the repeated commands automatically. Once I adapted my code to that functionality, all was well.
  12. The default zone closure timeout value is 30 seconds. In my testing, using a lower value results in zones reporting in C4 as incorrectly closed. I think that 30 is as low as you can go without causing problems.
  13. You are correct about the zone closure issue. Just to clarify the behavior, if a single zone is open, its closure is tracked in real-time. If you have multiple zones open, and all are closed at (roughly) the same time, the closures will show up in real-time too. However, if you have multiple zones open, and some (but not all) are closed, then then it takes 30 seconds for these zones to show up as closed in C4. As far as I know, there is no way around this issue with the HSIM driver.
  14. Create vacation is an API capability And just like that, I went from being satisfied with the new driver....to unsatisfied. Sometimes ignorance is bliss.
