  1. Another one UP for Sony Android TVs. We just finished in install for a new family home with 6 Sony TVs and it all works great and was very quick to integrate. Plus Sony has a good range of mid to high-end TVs. In this Project we have installed the J90 series plus J80 for the Kids and Guest room.
  2. In my home I put the Room control driver to have the music button cycle through pre-set favorites/Playlists. Then I set-up a long press on that music button to switch off the music. You need to use the Timer agent for that.
  3. For my set-up the driver is working well, have not tired the Varietas Driver yet. But looking at my Homebridge status I do see several times error codes. Just sharing here so that it might help to improve the driver with future updates.

  4. If you are getting a splitter then it might be worth using one with edid copy function. Sometimes my Nvidia shield loosed Video signal when switching between my Samsung 4k TV and my Benq 4k projector. Switching inputs to a different source usually fixed the issue. A splitter which would copy the edid from my Samsung TV would probably fix the issue.
  5. BlackNova also have fancy touch based keypads. i have personally not used them yet but I‘m planing on getting some for our showroom. They are wired rs485 keypads and have a gateway which integrates with Control4. https://blacknova.co
  6. I second that I‘ve used that driver a few times and even use it in my home as I also have a TV and Projector set-up in my living room. You don‘t need to put a fake room with that driver
  7. Looking forward to the square UK/EU style of them. Might still take a few months though 😓
  8. We have just recently installed two Epson 6050ub and they deliver great quality for the price and have motorised lens which is great if you have a cinemascope screen. But do not expect the inky blacks and dynamic HDR which you will get with the JVX DLA-NX5.
  9. Usually it‘s a combination of Both. ARC send the audio signal and CEC is doing the control. With most SmartTVs from the last 5 years that should work. But beware that Arc and Cec is not always reliable. Sometimes the connection is lost and then you need to power cycle all and maybe enable CEC again and choose the ARC device in the TV menu. Very user unfriendly and service call to us. had same issues with AVRs connected to TVs. ended up using optical Toslink again because it is just more reliable and for some smartTV IP driver you can even send command to use optical Toslink cable.
  10. Oh I did not realize that. This is indeed better. I‘ll contact the Singapore distributor to import some test units 👍
  11. I will need to get an IntesisBox but the Aircon I tested it would have only be compatible with the IR version anyway so also only a 1 way control.
  12. The only work around I was able to do is using the Heos Favourites and then use single, double or tripple tap programming on the keypad. sadly no cycler from the room control driver
  13. i‘m based in the tropics and in most projects Split Aircon units are used. I just recently started to test at my place how to deal with IR based Split units using the Z2IO for IR out, temperature sensor and I added a reed manget contact switch so that Control4 gets some feedback if the Aircon is on or off in case my wife uses the standard IR remote of the Aircon. For the Programming now when the relax light scene in the bedroom is triggered and the Aircon is not on then it will switch on to a set preset. For the schedule I set the aircon to something like 22c to cool down the bedroom in the evening and then slowly the temperature will go up during the night to around 25-26c. @msgreenf I‘ve never used a Nest or Ecobee as they are not easily available in Indonesia. What smart features would they add when all your doing is controlling an Split aircon units and not heating as well? Not needing to think about heating is one of the reasons I moved from Switzerland into the tropics more then 10 years ago 😅
  14. This driver is great. I tested Amazon Alexa voice commands before but it was supper slow. Maybe because we are based in Asia and it uses the cloud to execute the commands. Now using this Driver with Homebridge voice commands via Siri are supper snappy. Very Awesome 💪
  15. Thank you for the quick reply Alan, will try and import a Zappiti for testing.
