  1. I haven't really played around with the room control driver, but I've used your single/double/triple tap strategy in a couple of spots and it's easy and pretty straightforward. So you could just see which works better for you. As far as the joining rooms option, I've set up one of my buttons to do this in a large open room where I have 2 zones. I did it so that a single tap of the music button will join the adjacent's room's session if that room is on. If that room is off, it will just do what you have programmed for your single tap. That way you don't have to program holds in or anything and will just click the button once. For example: If adjacent room is on have room play current selected audio of adjacent room {or join digital media session; just see which works better for you/is easier to program} stop If adjacent room is off Turn on Spotify playlist in room Stop
  2. Thanks...I'll give this a try and see if it works. EDIT: @alanchow I gave this a try and even after 5 minutes I got no response from actions on the HS220. If I dim/turn on the bulb outside of C4, the light level doesn't update in C4 even after several minutes either (all other devices seem to do this very well). Thanks for all the help. I'll try and shoot Drivercentral a support ticket or have my dealer look into it when I add a couple more bulbs to the project in a couple of weeks.
  3. That was it! Thanks @alanchow...I definitely forgot to look at the MAC addresses. Follow up question for you or any of the other users of this driver: is there a way to program off a button press on the HS220? I've got several TP-Link devices in my project and my lone HS220 seems to be the only one that C4 has a hard time recognizing any action that I don't instigate from C4. All of my programming from C4 for it works great, but if I change the light level via physically pressing the switch or through the Kasa app, C4 doesn't seem to pick up anything has happened. My plugs (HS1xx) and bulbs all seems to provide very quick two-way feedback.
  4. Has anyone on here had an issue where some of your devices take on the IP address of one of your other TP-Link devices? Right now I have an HS220 and an HS105 that seem stuck on the IP address of one of my HS100s. I can't seem to get the IP addresses to change in Composer HE. As soon as I re-enter the correct IP address, it reverts back to the incorrect IP address from the other device. Attempted an EA5 reboot and that didn't fix it.
  5. Also if you're like me and plan on having Echo devices scattered around your house for voice control of C4, they can be used as intercoms/announcement devices as a stop-gap until you decide if you want to program announcements through C4 or install C4 touchscreens.
  6. Update: This looks like it was all related to the Drivercentral issues mentioned in another forum post. Server seems back up and drivers are working again (at least for me).
  7. I woke up this morning to find all my Chowmain drivers non-functional. Logged into Composer HE and they all show a status of "Please purchase license..." in the Activation Status dialog box (all are purchased). Everything else in my system is working just fine. I also tried rebooting my EA5 to no avail. Anyone else experiencing or experienced something similar?
  8. There was a nice interview with Martin Plaehn (C4 CEO) on a recent Hometech.fm podcast where he commented on 2018 being a quiet year for C4 and that they had bigger things in store for 2019. He also made some comments with regards to a renewed focus on enhancing their industrial design (which basically echos their statements around the Neeo acquisition). Obviously this was vague CEO speak, but I certainly expect some bigger advances on the software/hardware front at CEDIA 2019 than we saw in 2018--which is a very low bar to overcome. Until then, we will just have to guess, hope, wish, etc.----as long as that doesn't include losing the ability to use HE. Let's not even think about that
  9. I also think you may benefit from deleting the double nested commands. If your target room is on, you probably don't need another conditional for it being in a session--it's either in a digital media session or playing some other media--either way, it's on. That way all of your commands are nested under the same conditional and you only have your volume command in there once...and only one "stop" command. Agree with @South Africa C4 user, you could set a default value for your Ensuite and eliminate that coding script as well.

  11. I live in the mountains and have horrible Internet speeds (~8 mbps). It sounds like I have a similar setup to you: 2 people, all streaming devices hardwired, don't often have two separate streams going and have many IP connected devices in the house that are always up. We really never have an issue (1080p streams)--even when we do have two streams going--so I'm sure you'll be more than fine with 100. We routinely stream music with Deezer through C4 too and that works great as well. And consider me VERY envious of your position of even having to worry about upgrading to 300
  12. I had an issue with this in the last week or two and it ended up being the VoiceRSS API key expired/no longer was working. I just went to their site, re-signed up and put in the new key they gave me in the driver properties and my announcements were back. Given the timing, you may have had the same issue.
  13. Yeah, it probably would be if you only wanted the music in one room. The OP seemed to want the music in multiple rooms though. From my experience, if that's the case, just start the music in another room and add the video room to the audio scene--video stays on the TV and you have all your rooms playing music with no additional steps (have to add the rooms anyway after all). He's already planning on using two iPhones for this so I decoupled the audio and video tasks in my mind anyway. I may have misunderstood his question though. If one room at a time, your method would likely be the way to go.
  14. I have a room in my house where the TV audio is fed back to my C4 audio matrix. My video is all local, but I think I've accomplished what you're going for here before. Start the video you want on your TV (Apple TV as the source in this case). Then use your other phone to start an audio scene in another room with Apple music via Shairbridge/Airplay (I use my kitchen because it's part of the same big open space). Once you've done that, you'll have two active AV scenes in C4. In the app, just add your TV room to your audio room/scene in the C4 app. That should leave the video selection unchanged, but now your Apple Music will be playing through the speakers from the other room's scene. I've done this before when we are hosting people and want music playing but may also want a sports game on the TV and still want the music to be the audio in that room. Figured this may help if the method @sonic30101 supplied didn't work or may give you another option to try and see which is easier.
  15. I have been very happy with my 5040ub. And for what it's worth, I've had mine for over 1 1/2 years now without issue so hopefully yours works out just as well--and hopefully you don't have to run more cable!
