  1. If you have your own music collection you can store it on a NAS drive, and the Control4 can be set to point to this and play music. You can also, as you suggest, store tracks on a USB stick connected in the back of your controller. I'm not familiar with the PianoDisc system but if it just takes an audio input then you could also use any of the supported musicstreaming services (such as Tidal, Deezer, Pandora, Napster, Spotify (Connect), or Amazon Music).
  2. Just need to make sure you get the retrofit version and not the new construction version!
  3. LG is the only one that I've seen, would love to know if any others can do it though. If that is the only scenario you want it for, most TVs will have an auto-standby setting which turns the TV off after a period of inactivity. Depending on your setup (if the TV is IR controlled or it's possible to add an IR bug to it, or if all you watch is sourced from the TV rather than an external source), you might be able to enable this setting within the TV, then have a custom button on your remote which is programmed to fire the TV's ok/select/enter code (if you are using the TV as the source then you wouldn't need this, you would just need to press enter). When the TV displays the message, the user presses the button and it clears the message, or if they don't then the TV turns off. If you have IP control you might then be able to program "When TV turns off > Turn off ROOM" so the C4 stays in sync with the TV. Hopefully my rambling makes sense, if not I'll try and explain better
  4. Hey Shivam, I know you have a lot on your plate with Google and Outlook calendars, but have you thought about looking at iCloud calendars too?
  5. Go back to a switch, you run the risk of damaging the dimmer and or the jukebox light. The dimmer is not capable of true switching, it is using a triac to dim very quickly, but this is still not the same. Could you re-wire the load to somewhere else (hidden in a cupboard for example) then install a keypad in it's place so you still have the extra buttons at that location?
  6. Yes, @alanchowhas made drivers for these: Belkin Wemo D-Link Smart Plug Orvibo Wiwo s20 TP-Link Kasa
  7. Yes, the bug was iOS only so they left it in the Android version and removed from iOS. OP - do you not have the volume buttons visible in the bottom media bar? If the room is on then you should have these available which will control the volume of the endpoint for the device. Why would you want the TV not to turn on when you are watching it? And why do you want it to stay on when switching the room off? Trying to understand your use case so as to advise on best solution.
  8. Confirmation of what won't work in OS3 (taken from C4 knowledgebase - if not allowed then mods please remove!) Life Cycle Changes To upgrade to OS 3, current control4 systems must be 2.9.0 or higher. 1.1 Must be Removed & Requires Intervention If the following items are in the project, the Upgrade Advisor will report them and block the upgrade. Once the offending items are addressed, Upgrade Advisor can be run again. Controllers (1) - HC-250 Touch Screens (5) - 7" In-Wall v2, 7" Portable v2, 5" In-Wall (FKA: Infinity Edge), 7" In-Wall (FKA: Infinity Edge), 7" In-Wall RevB (FKA: Infinity Edge) Door Stations (2) - Exterior Door Station, Interior Door Station AV (1) – Speaker Point IP Cameras that utilize the Camera proxy v1 WakeUp agent (the Wakeup/Goodnight agent should be used instead) Security systems that utilize V1 Security Drivers Blinds that utilize the Blinds v2 proxy 1.2 Limited Functionality If the following items are in the project, the Upgrade Advisor will not block the install but instead will provide an informational message. iPod proxy – Transport controls (play, skip, pause, etc) are no longer supported in graphical user interfaces for drivers that use the iPod proxy. Controller (1) – HC-800 – The HC-800 is supported in OS 3. However, the Flash-based Navigator is discontinued so there is no on-screen display (OSD) for the HC-800. Within Composer, the Upgrade Advisor report will indicate that the HC-800 is supported, but it will not include the OSD. 1.3 No Longer Supported & No Intervention Required The following items will either be removed automatically from a project during upgrade (if they exist in a project) or no longer supported. Web Nav Access (2) – WebHTML and WebNav(flashnav) Apple Watch MyHomePC Legacy Audio EADev Driver Generic Media MyHome Drivers – control4_ipad, control4_iphone, control4_android, control4_myhomepc – Remove automatically HC Generic Driver 4store Agent
  9. Yes, Control4 have been a bit silly on that Gary! They have confirmed on dealer forums that release date is 28th (next Tuesday)
  10. Blind cables can use different gauges for power depending on the run distance. Lutron have a guide for their own blinds here http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/045314 QS WP Guide.pdf (page 9 for the wire length chart).
  11. This would be a good place to start: https://www.control4.com/docs/product/communication-server/dealer-installation-and-setup-guide/english/latest If you can't find your answer there I would talk to tech support directly (this is not an official Control4 forum so they won't necessarily see your thread).
  12. When you buy it you should also get a year of 4Sight license included which will allow you to use the apps out of the house, use Alexa, and use IntercomAnywhere (if you have the right hardware in the system).
  13. Do the channel up and down buttons currently do anything? If not, then you could possibly do it with some programming in Composer HE. I've not used the Shield before, but if the left and right commands are available as actions in the right hand side then this should work: When <ROOM> receives command Channel Up: If <ROOM> Video Source is NVIDIA SHIELD Send Command RIGHT to NVIDIA SHIELD When <ROOM> receives command Channel Down: If <ROOM> Video Source is NVIDIA SHIELD Send Command LEFT to NVIDIA SHIELD You would need to do this for each room the Shield is available in. If the channel up and down buttons do something currently, then this would execute the left and right programming as well as what the buttons currently do, which would probably not be ideal!
  14. Have you checked the connections on the room as well? It's been a while but I think there is a connection for room's security system which might need to be made for the new driver.
  15. Check under the Navigator tab for the room in System Design (where you set the Watch and Listen lists). There is a section for security where the new drivers may be hidden.
