  1. I wasn’t sure if anyone else has experienced this issue but if I happen to be watching either Kodi or Disney Plus, and I send PIP to my Nvidia Shield (NetplayTV), it pauses the app. I don’t see this happening with Netflix, Amazon Video, YouTube, or Live Channels (HDHomeRun). Currently each Shield is using a Video Storm IRUSB (Version 2.1 ) with Chowmains driver. The reason I’d like the “pausing” to stop is because I have programming that sends PIP whenever BlueIris triggers an alert when someone has crossed a detection zone. It works well... just a pain in the butt if you’re watching Disney plus or Kodi. Which brings me to what I thought would be a possible solution in the absence of a fix. I thought a workaround would be for me to populate a variable whenever I selected Kodi or Disney Plus, and if that variable is “true”, representing that I’m watching either App, do not send the PIP to the TVs. Just send it to the T3 for that room. However... it doesn’t appear that the Mini Apps store status when selected. Not that I can tell. Thoughts or recommendations welcomed.

  2. I currently use the annex4 LG driver for all of our TVs and it works well. I’ve never had an issue with input, volume, or turning the tv on or off for that matter. Keep in mind though, you need to make sure that the TV is using a physical Ethernet connection. WiFi isn’t supported. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks... I’m a little surprised. Ethernet is always my preference, however with my use-case of being able to take it to the patio or away from the base within the house, having to enable the WiFi would be a pain in the butt. Considering lesser devices handle this (I.e Nvidia Shield TVs, Laptops, etc) without issue, I don’t think a performance hit is the hurtle. I will just opt for WiFi and resist my compulsion to hardwire whenever possible. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I looked at this again. After adding the APP info I provided in a previous post to my kids rooms it kept starting the HDHomerun app. I thought this was strang giving that the settings were the same in all four rooms, with the living room and Master bedroom settings launching Android Channels App. However, after looking at the system variables it is some what clear why two worked and two "didnt". Having that been said, below is the app intent to launch live channels. com.google.android.tv#Intent;component=com.google.android.tv/com.android.tv.TvActivity;end
  5. I wasn’t sure if I was missing something but I Assumed that the table top T3, when on the base connected to Ethernet, would leverage the physical connection, and when you removed from the base, it would use its WiFi. However, when looking at it both in the T3 settings and via Composer, the WiFi is still active. What gives. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’ve been playing around with the trial copy of the driver with two of my Hikvision Mini PTZ (2DE2A404IW-DE3) camera’s, and so far... so good. But I do have one issue maybe someone can assist with. When viewing via the mobile app I can see both cameras “thumb view”, and when I select a camera, I get the live view along with PTZ control. Which is the desired behavior. However my T3’s I see the thumb view but if I select a camera it just spins and then times out never showing the live view. I’ve update the firmware for both camera’s and played around with the settings on the cameras to see if I can get it to show, but all I’ve done was break the mobile view, never successfully showing the live view for both the T3s and the C4 app. suggestions welcomed Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. It would be great if there was BlueIris support and PTZ camera control via SR260 arrows. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I agree with Don. That flow is way too long. It would be a much better experience if that functioned almost like the native dialer. Having had some experience with Integrating apps in my work environment, I know how difficult it is to get Apple to open up IOS in the name of security. And although Android is a lot more malleable, it’s always best to keep parity between Android and IOS whenever possible. So we may not see a change there any time soon. As for losing the intercom if we temporarily lost the Native App. I’ve only had my system for maybe three years now. I don’t recall many App failures. Maybe I wasn’t paying attention all that much in my early days. But I don’t recall many significant issues outside of the Certificate one. And I agree, all ideas aren’t good ones. But I haven’t seen many products increase user adoption by splitting functionality / features into multiple interfaces. Again... for those like myself where I love this stuff that’s great. However, everyone else in my house hold who interacts with it, and truly likes the solution, because it’s a frictionless approach to home automation, now has to think about what app and when. And what’s that ringing, etc... And back to Don’s point. By the time you unlock your phone and get into the intercom app, you’ve missed the call. I’ll end with the following. I suspect that most people use the intercom in the following ways: Room to room via T3. Mobile to Room. And... not necessarily T3 to mobile. Mobile to mobile. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. May not be. However, it is working. I’d gladly revise if you have another syntax you’d like me to try. But... it is currently working for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I see your point but disagree. Looking at your all in one analogy. Interesting enough ubiquity just released an all in one almost exactly as you’ve referenced. With that being said... In this golden age of Application development, and with some planning, I suspect they could pull the two code sets into parity, and then collapse it into one, without backing themselves into a dependency corner. It may because intercom anywhere was a long time coming, not having the same time in the market as the main app, and I believe consolidation will come once the dust settles from other initiatives (I.e Neo, CA-10, etc) and the SnapAV influence. Streamlining, on many levels, is inevitable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Here’s what I have: Com.amazon.amazonvideo.livingroom#Intent;component=com.amazon.amazonvideo.livingroom/com.amazon.ignition.IgnitionActivityo;?;endo;? It seems pretty crazy but it works on every shield I have. And I have five of them. Hope if works out Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Instead of having two mobile apps on my phone I would like to have the Intercom anywhere app collapsed into the Control4 App. It makes it easier to create and communicate to the other family members how to interact with our Home and each other. Because I’m in the Apps all of the time I’m accustomed to their functionality. But it would definitely be a better experience collapsing it into one, and if I can continue to dream, it would be great if a long press and select to invoke the intercom from the mobile phone, or tie it to a key if it’s an Android device. That would be great! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I second that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Theres instructions on how to perform a debug (Network or USB) on Android. Once you setup the debug, you can launch the application which will show the App intent. I believe the instructions can be found in a Thread from Videostorm on the forum. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Android App intent is: Com.silicondust.view#Intent;component=com.silicondust.view/.MediaCodecPlayer;end Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
