  1. Hi, I wanted to share this to see if anyone else has encountered this oddity. I wanted to replace a Harmony remote and hub with the C4Z2IO. The setup is a Toshiba TV, Samsung Cable box and an Amazon Fire TV Stick. I used stock drivers for everything except the Toshiba TV because it doesn't have direct access to inputs; you need to press the INPUT button and then a number corresponding to the input (0-8). So I edited a Toshiba driver to support the INPUT button and tested it with an EA-1 I have waiting to be deployed to another room. Hooking it up got it working with my setup including volume, mute, channel select, input select and control of the Fire TV Stick. When I replaced the EA-1 with the C4Z2IO everything worked EXCEPT for when the inputs changed it wasn't sending the INPUT button so the tv would receive a '5' for HDMI 1, for '6' for HDMI 2 and then switch to Antenna mode and basically show static. I switched back to the EA-1 and everything works fine. Anyone ever encounter something like this? Russell
  2. Hi, It would just allow selecting of a device and an HDMI input and audio. Similar to the Nintendo Wii driver. Control would be through whatever controllers are hooked up to the RaspberryPi (wireless in my instance). Let me know. Russ
  3. Thanks. Well with part-time work I've learned Python and LUA. I have a driver that can read the thermostats, get the values, poll for changes. Need to add saving the values back, then prettying it up and then testing. Does Control4 purchase third-party drivers to include in their offering?
  4. Hi all, I have a Lennox iComfort Wifi in my Master Bedroom. There's a HouseLogix driver for it but I wanted to take this opportunity to see if I can write a complicated driver. Is there a 'competitive' market for drivers in the Control 4 world? I don't want to step on any toes. Russell.
  5. I have the Orbi system with the main controller hardwired into the main hub and have had no issues either with the phone client or the wifi touchscreens throughout the house. I have three satellites that give me full coverage of the house.
  6. Hi all, My main staircase has three switches to control it from three locations, so I need: 2 Keypads 1 Dimmer What makes it complicated is I need one almond, one white, and one black. Any combination of those three with 1 dimmer and 2 keypads will work. Russ
  7. Got it working! I'll take a couple of photos.
  8. Somewhat off-topic, I'm about to install an HPC10A heavy duty power controller to replace the timer on the front landscape lights. We lose power occasionally and I hate them not syncing up. At least with Control4 I can sink the porch and garage lights now with the ladscape lights so it's looks better.
  9. Yeah. I've always been one of those who has to be on the latest whatever... I remember upgrading CD players from 1x, 2x, 4x, 8x, etc. LOL
  10. I get your point. Like I have an iPad 2 that i only use as a Control4 tablet because the iOS stopped updating at 9.3.5 I believe. I type corrected.
  11. That's kind of different isn't it? Old phones can still be used. If I want to run < OS3 I'd keep the HC250's I have around, but if not... S.S. Minnow?
  12. So what do you do with Control4 hardware that is no longer supported? Buy a boat and use them as an anchor? 🙂
