  1. Are there any NVR drivers (for any camera system) that let you browse recorded clips with Control4? For example, when you are looking at the live video feed it would be great to quickly rewind a few seconds/minutes to see what just happened. (i.e. if you hear a noise outside and the camera looks OK, you might want to rewind and see if anything recently happened)
  2. OK, so those are the settings on the camera (Dahua?) itself, right? I'm using the Blue Iris driver so I think Control4 connects to Blue Iris which provides the video stream so I don't think those camera streams would matter? I did try changing the Control4 driver settings to 1 second (and 5 seconds) but it didn't seem to affect anything... Hmm...
  3. @ecschnei: Oh, I'm sorry! For some reason I assumed you meant you would be home later than night. That's completely my fault and I absolutely apologize. Thank you so much for the help with the settings!
  4. Yeah, it does show a still image but even after I select the individual camera it still shows a still image. I think it MIGHT update a few times every minute or so but it's mostly static.
  5. Anybody else able to help me? Unfortunately I haven’t heard back from ecschnei.
  6. I’m using Blue Iris (v5) for my home camera system and I’m also using the Blue Iris Static IP Camera DAD driver from May 2016 (!!!). It seems to be partially working and I can see the cameras in Control4, but it’s only showing static (still) images and not a live video feed. I’ve searched the forum for this issue and I’ve read that Blue Iris needs to be configured for 720p 30fps but I’m not sure where or how to configure that. I’ve searched the Blue Iris settings and I think I am using that already (1280x720, 30 FPS). Does anybody else have this problem? Are there any other (better) drivers available? Are there any drivers to view the Blue Iris recorded footage?
  7. I'm looking for a (cheap) HDMI matrix for my home system that supports HDMI 2.0 (18 Gbps) and has a lot of inputs and a few outputs. Something around 8 inputs and 3-4 outputs would be perfect but the standard size seems to be 8x8 for matrices. The "big name" HDMI matrices are extremely expensive starting at around $1000 for a Gefen 4X4 HDMI matrix. However, there are cheap generic switches on eBay/Aliexpress/Alibaba for as low as $499 for a Foxun/generic 8x8 HDMI 2.0 (18 Gbps) matrix. Does anybody have any experience with any of them?
  8. Thanks for the replies ... That's very interesting about using an HDMI splitter. So you guys just connect the AVR output to the splitter input, and then one splitter output to the TV? (and the other splitter output is not connected) HDMI/HDCP is so terrible 😕
  9. I've posted this question over the AVS Forum and they seem to agree it's a common issue but I thought I'd post here as well to get your opinion and any possible solutions. Basically, both my Denon AVR-X4300H and Marantz NR-1608 have a problem where it will not display a signal after being turned on. You can turn them off and on again but it doesn't help. The only solution is to switch the AVR input to something different and then back again to the original input. That seems to always solve the problem. I'd say the problem was specific to HDMI cabling and/or specific sources/sinks but it happens in different locations with completely different equipment. Some folks at AVS Forum agree that they have had this problem too. Has anybody here seen this? Would it be possible to program Control4 that when the AVR is turned on that it saves the current input to a variable, switches the input to something different (i.e. AUX2 or whatever) and then back to the original input?
  10. Is it possible to setup a room with an AVR to switch audio between the TV speakers and AVR speakers? For example, sometimes I just want quiet audio from the TV but other times it's nice to have the full AVR speakers playing. I've searched the forums and I've seen a few threads about this but it doesn't look like anybody has a clear solution. My specific AVR (Marantz NR-1608) has a setting called "HDMI Audio Out" which can either decode the HDMI audio and send it to the TV, or play through the speakers. However, this requires Control4 being able to toggle this setting and then assign the Vol+ and Vol- buttons to either the TV or AVR depending on the setting. Anybody else have any ideas?
  11. Sorry to bring up this topic again, but are there any Blue Iris drivers that let you view recordings? (yes, there are better interfaces for this, but it’s a nice feature to have on the C4 interfaces as well) Also, Gary seemed to hint at a possible update to the Blue Iris driver ...?
  12. Are you talking about the menus such as Comfort, Lights, Watch, etc? Can they be placed anywhere else?
  13. Are you talking about the 'UIButton' drivers? These appear under 'Watch' or 'Listen' ?
