  1. Hi guys, My Onkyo receiver checked out on me after a lightning storm the other night. It was a solid 8 or 9 years old anyway... So, it's really just a good excuse to my wife to get a new one. 🤫 Anyway, I already have a replacement on the way (Denon AVR-S750H), but of course I can't change anything in CHE or even see the IP address I need to force it to in order to maintain the network control. How much am I looking at for one of you awesome remote guys to hop in there and swap it out for me? I'd love for it to be ready to go when the new one gets here Wed or Thurs. Thanks,
  2. Sure, there are basic elements that work fine. However, not being able to view, modify, or clear the queue while a playlist or station is playing is a big deal for most. I use the queue all the time at parties or even just by myself to move songs around a bit and make edits on the fly. The solution, of course, is to just control the music from the Sonos app once you set the rooms to "listen" on the C4. But, then what's the point of this entire system if you're just using it to set inputs? As a more practical example as it relates to customization: In my situation, i tried to program some
  3. Yes, i'm saying i wouldn't have tried XX control system, period. I would've just used all native stuff and dealt with the headaches. Going this route has done nothing but force me to spend a lot more cash up front, with the same number (but just different sources) of headaches.
  4. I agree 1000%. That's what I just said. Every single manufacturer of hardware could do the same thing TOMORROW. C4 can be "capable" all they want... But, they better have an ARMY of licensing / business development folks who try to limit the damage on as much of this stuff as possible. Sadly, I see this doing nothing but continuing slowly but surely... One by one, product by product. Hence why i said if I had paid more attention to their reliance on API's to survive, I would've done things very differently.
  5. By all accounts, it has been somewhere between 16 and 18 months since the new API broke the ability to clear the queue. So, if there are... they are spectacularly bad at their jobs. Again, we're not talking about convincing a company to add a new feature to the API. We're talking about getting them to fix something that was ALREADY there and working in a prior update. I work in video games where we are constantly under the thumb of Sony and MSFT. It's their world, and the rest of us are just living in it. I get that. I deal with arbitrary changes to platforms, rules, regulations, and new APIs
  6. Are we not allowed to have opinions on these forums? Like many other things on C4, the interface on the app is odd and clunky on top of the blatant lack of features, which I already said was Sonos' fault? But since u asked... Had I known what I do now... I NEVER would have bought this system in the first place. Not because it's "bad" per se, just because it relies on WAY too many external factors that I didn't fully take into account when I bought it. Yes, individual apps for everything sucks. But, so do half-assed integrations. If I were a product manager at Snap, a dealer, a marketing
  7. Sonos control SUCKS in C4. Can't clear, edit, or even really view the queue. Part of it is actually Sonos' fault for taking features out of the API that C4 needed for proper control, but there is equal blame to go around. I have actually been going around in circles for months with Sonos on this very topic in one of their own support forums. They actually used to support it in a prior release of the API, and then they killed it? Enraging, but they absolutely will not budge.
  8. I'm not demonizing anyone. You've done a fine job of that yourself. But similarly, I dont understand why you continue to argue with someone's OPINION and tell them they're wrong because they don't agree with your almighty decree's. To be honest... Nothing about 2017 matters except that you CHALLENGED me about why I could possibly have a bad taste. All the rest of it was merely me trying to explain my reasoning to you. If you don't agree... Frankly, I don't care. My goal here is to help others by leaving them my findings and why I made the decisions I did. As a side benefit, they can also lear
  9. Sorry, on second thought... it's definitely more of a pompous / arrogance blend with perhaps a compensation complex. But, I'm just guessing at this point.
  10. You're making my point in your own ignorance. Thanks. A $340 dollar router that ended up being the deadweight anchor of an ENTIRE system that cost nearly 100 times that. it was never right for the job.
  11. Did i not just say right or wrong? I am certainly entitled to my own opinion having paid a PRETTY penny for this system just over 2 years ago. So, here's mine: The DAY that router was installed... it was already nearing the end of it's usefulness. Gigabit had been flourishing in my area WELL over a year before that. So, it may have been a "good choice" at the time for my dealer who used SnapAV products almost exclusively in my house, but in a network full of other FULLY gigabit capable devices it was out of place from the moment it was first powered on. That's not opinion... that's just f
  12. INDEED! I work in video games... and, on any given day in this "work from home" world, we are now needing to sync our entire projects 2-3 times per day on an avg day, or 5 or 6 times on a busy day. Each time, the download is somewhere between 1.5-2.5GB of data and assets that need to re-sync. On Tuesdays and Fridays, we get the latest builds which are somewhere in the 12-15GB range. This was the original reason of why I initially started looking for all the lost bandwidth I was experiencing. ADD all of that to a family of five including 3 boys age 16, 15, and 11 and my old connection did
  13. Yes, that's exactly what I want... To waste as much money as possible so I can have a "BSD" and see big numbers on a speedtest. That's exactly the point of this entire thread. Thank you for your intelligent insight. [emoji2357][emoji2369] Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  14. Definitely looking to do BOTH! And both are equally bad (in my opinion). Admittedly for different reasons. Dismissing a router that claims to be gigabit but is actually only half that seems like a much bigger deal to me. :-) Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  15. With respect... this makes absolutely no sense to me? But several of you have made a similar comment. Even forgetting about just the wifi for a moment, this is cutting my wired download speeds in half. I routinely download 2GB folders for work all the time. And, i would've never thought the router was my problem. ESPECIALLY with the word "gigabit" in the name of the product itself? May not be my "biggest" issue as it relates to the wifi speeds overall... but it is at least AS BIG an issue as the APs, is it not?
